I'm tired of offensive and defensive labeling. Yes, we have different characteristics, but we should never be defined by those traits. Our only labels should be our names.

Chatting with my bro on the phone...
Him:What's having a period like?
Me:Well, I bleed for like one day, in total it lasts for three days and there isn't cramping or craving so yeah.
Him:How come people say it's that bad then?
Me:Because they're fucking bleeding from a permanent hole in their fucking bodies for 7 fucking days. 7 fucking days. It's straight up Niagara fucking Red Sea Falls coming from between their legs for 7 fucking days. Like how the fucking hell are you even fucking alive?
Him:...I'm scared and I don't want to know anymore...
Me:Join the club.

"Ask me if I care? I’m not insensitive, I just don’t care."

Two bumper stickers I saw today

Are you sure you don’t care? Because you found reason to let the world know (twice!) that you don’t care. I think you care more than anyone.

"Damn Ms. S, got the ill’est swag. More than anybody here. Damn, can we go shopping together?"

Student

Don’t know if he’s being serious or making fun of me. This is the second time he has said it. If I’ve learned anything about their behavior I’d say he isn’t making fun of me but I don’t know.

If he is joking, well it stops there.

If he is complimenting me, it makes me feel good. Also, it’d be the first time a male compliments me and even goes as far as saying he wants me to pick out his clothes.

Obviously, he has to be joking to a certain extent bc I’m not actually going to. It’s just rare (or feels like it) for a male to see a woman dressed masculine and say aloud, “Wow, she dresses well. Maybe I can get a pointer from her.”

Christians Should Not Be Troubled by Pagan Aspects of Easter, Says Expert →

[Thomas Burke, dean of Humanities at Hillsdale College and a professor of philosophy and religion] stated that Easter traditions “no longer have those pagan associations and meanings,” they are “perfectly legitimate for Christians.”

Legitimate? lmao.

“Insofar as such practices and symbols now represent Christ, they are perfectly legitimate for Christians. Christians should feel comfortable in their efforts to claim the world for Christ,” said Burke.

So now that Christians have borrowed traditions they suddenly own it? It is now NO LONGER pagan? Paganism is long forgotten because Christians say so?

“That’s the mission of the Church, not simply to save individuals, but to redeem peoples and cultures as much as possible – not through force, of course, but by means of preaching and practicing the gospel of Christ.”

YOU’RE NOT REDEEMING, YOU’RE CONTROLLING. You and all religions need to remove the stick from your tight asses. I’m usually pretty passive and respectful, but damn.

The pagan roots of Easter →

"Bunnies are a leftover from the pagan festival of Eostre, a great northern goddess whose symbol was a rabbit or hare. Exchange of eggs is an ancient custom, celebrated by many cultures. Hot cross buns are very ancient too. In the Old Testament we see the Israelites baking sweet buns for an idol, and religious leaders trying to put a stop to it. The early church clergy also tried to put a stop to sacred cakes being baked at Easter. In the end, in the face of defiant cake-baking pagan women, they gave up and blessed the cake instead."

Craig Armstrong - Miracle

I’m 23. My students range from 16-21. Average age is prob 18. When I’m not dressed up for work (shit even when I am) I look like one of them.

Slightly loose skinny jeans, just enough to sag. (But I don’t go overboard now, there’s an art to it lol). T-shirt, usually fitted. Added with the youth in my behavior and physical features.

It feels weird when I see something on them that I would buy for myself. Usually it’s the boys, which adds humor. I want to ask them where they bought this or that but I don’t. Minimizing class conversations while at work is a priority but outside of professionalism I don’t want to deal with their reaction. You usually ask someone where they bought something to ask for yourself or maybe someone else and I don’t want to lie.

I’m not one to run from a conversation like the one that might come up if I ask them “where?” but now it feels different since I’m their teacher.

Even in college I felt like teachers didn’t exist outside of school, as if their bodies never left the building, so I can imagine what these students think…or don’t think and with their already small amount of focus on schoolwork, I don’t need to be the one creating distractions.
