psa: feminazi is a fucking disgusting term that compares fighting for women’s rights to genocide.
it was coined by rush limbaugh (that alone should be enough to make you stay far far away from it)
it is a racist term, and it is disrespectful to marginalized groups who suffered in nazi germany (so jews, roma, lgbt folks, people with disabilities, etc.)
do not use it.
if you disagree with feminists: do not use it
if you are a feminist: do not reclaim it
if you are the type of person who would show up to a cafe five minutes from closing with your whole family and order shit that messes up all the cleaned shit (sandwiches that need to be panini pressed, quiches, etc) and then insist on eating in AND paying when you’re finished, i honestly wish you a life of grief
and if after all that you wouldn’t even leave a tip, there is an especially shitty place in hell for you
this is my favorite internet phenomenon that i have experienced since i joined tumblr three years ago.
the ketchup one, woahmahgawd
"You can’t pay $60,000 a year? Sorry, you can’t go to college."
"You dropped out of school to earn money and now you’re at a dead-end job? Why didn’t you just go to college?"
fucking american college system.
incorrect. stop whining. you don’t have to pay 60,000 a year for college. Go to your local state school. Its not fancy. Its not pretty. Its a degree.
Best Parks and Rec outtake ever. Possibly one of the funniest moments of any show ever. This cast is perfection.
one of my favorite things in the world
Purchase College Library’s CAPTCHAOlivia Fox, 2013(photo by Chloé Zetkov)A small alphanumeric string can represent so much. It can point to a specific piece of information within a massive data structure.The Purchase Library is a literal data structure, physically sheltering countless documents for the campus community. It serves as a hub of representation - it is the only building which every student and faculty member is a part of. Everyone is given equal opportunity to use the library. This sort of shared power is a beautiful thing.I think Alan Turing is an important and tragically obfuscated figure in the history of organizing information. The Turing test asked if machines could think. Nowadays, many theorists argue that machines are extensions of ourselves, and we are presented with CAPTCHAs, an inversion on the Turing test designed to distinguish the humans from the robotic drones.In the digital age, are we respecting this physical resource? Are we just mindless bots exploiting the library and mining data? To unlock the potential of the library, you must enter the CAPTCHA.Are you human?Special thanks: Joe Jakubowski, Christopher Simon, Donna Dennis, Eric Wildrick, Patrick Callahan, Kim Detterbeck, and the Purchase College president and his committee for allowing me this opportunity
