If you actually cared about men’s issues, you wouldn’t tack them on as an afterthought to a woman’s conversation: You’d instead be actively engaging in dialogues that explore the nuances of men’s problems in society. You wouldn’t simply wait until a woman is speaking and then shout “Yeah, men too!” You’d talk about these things independently and give men the attention that they deserve as individuals, instead of waiting for a woman to do the work, shouldering her aside and then insisting that men be given a spot on the stage too.
If you actually cared about women’s issues, you wouldn’t demand that they give up their space. You’d recognize that conversations by women and about women are perfectly valid. When a woman is talking about her personal experiences and the way social pressures have affected her life, you wouldn’t allow her to be interrupted or derailed. You wouldn’t actively talk over her or steal away attention, focusing on issues that are outside of her point, until the conversation drifts so far away that you aren’t even discussing women anymore.
So both now and in the future, my answer here is going to remain the same: Can we talk about everyone?
We’re still talking about women right now."
I just needed to give a special shout out to how great & useful these words were.

Why are you making it so hard for me to take classes?
I just want to learn, damn ittttt.
carrionofcats if I get my license in Seoul, I can get a Georgia license without having additional tests, so I thought it would just be an easy way to get two licenses… plus, I don’t have time in the states to go practice driving and stuff since I go to college. I have having to carry around my passport as identification in Atlanta when (even cvs requires id when I want to buy cold medicine????) so I thoughhhhhht it would be minimal work and a lot of benefits.
BUT Seoul driving is too stressful for me. Like I am about to have a heart attack any minute now stressful. And like our driving tests are out on actual roads. My test today required going to 뱅뱅사거리 which is like right on the big gangnam street with lots of intersections.
Okay, so, today confirmed that driving is the scariest activity out there. I just cried after I failed my driving exam because the fact that I would have to drive again this week stressed me out so much…

i just wanted to put this out there since im sure it’ll get written about differently tomorrow.
The worst part of outfitting our police officers as soldiers has been psychological. Give a man access to drones, tanks, and body armor, and he’ll reasonably think that his job isn’t simply to maintain peace, but to eradicate danger. Instead of protecting and serving, police are searching and destroying.
If officers are soldiers, it follows that the neighborhoods they patrol are battlefields. And if they’re working battlefields, it follows that the population is the enemy. And because of correlations, rooted in historical injustice, between crime and income and income and race, the enemy population will consist largely of people of color, and especially of black men. Throughout the country, police officers are capturing, imprisoning, and killing black males at a ridiculous clip, waging a very literal war on people like Michael Brown."
