People of color, women, and women of color—we have not been taught to have the confidence that you need to really succeed in a world like academia. We’re afraid of failure, we’re afraid of what it means to get feedback even, because our understanding of our capacity is so limited, and that holds us back from taking challenges. Whereas when you look at white males in academia, those men have a wellspring of confidence that we don’t have. When they fail, that doesn’t hit them to the core. That doesn’t debilitate them. They think, “I’m still awesome. This might have happened, but that person is stupid. That person doesn’t know what they’re talking about. That person doesn’t know shit.” That’s the attitude that I think we need to have and that I’m building up now in my own career.

[Korra] makes the near-exact same kinds of dumb decision she made in the first season (she might want to tattoo “Pay attention when Tenzin mistrusts sketchy Northern Water Tribe dudes” on her hand), and it comes from the same character flaw: She probably wouldn’t acknowledge it, but deep down, she thinks she’s better than the people she loves.

I’ve decided to take a good tumblr hiatus for a week or two because
A) I’m going on vacation - I need time to prepare, pack, do laundry, etc
B) Tumblr is very distracting
C) I’m really getting tired of the general “energy” on tumblr - the arrogance, pride, depressive attitudes (including myself, I’m not saying I didn’t contribute to that at all), self-righteousness and knowitallness…it’s not helping me in my personal life and I don’t want to internalize the vibes of others.
So, see y’all later when I come back.
yall are so anti-slut shaming but you seem to have NO problem trying to police what another woman does with her vagina
like why do you really care whether or not another girl goes raw with her boyfriend?
how is this even a concern of yours?
thank you. and the sammeee people will post an anti-slut shaming article moments after and see NO contradiction.
oh my god
EHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Some people just like to warn people against the possibility of contracting STI/STD’s and getting pregnant…but HEYYY now that’s considered policing women’s bodies
bunch of stupid motherfuckers…
