The Adventures of Cesium

Columbia University class of 2018 and ridiculously excited! :D :D
If you know me in real life (meaning from school, family, camp, columbia facebook group), it's totally fine if you read my blog as long as you tell me who you are and you understand that personal posts on tumblr STAY on tumblr.

I like Pokemon, books, food, girls with asymmetrical smiles, and social justice. I've made a lot of friends on this website and I love it every time I make a connection, so don't hesitate to message me and tell me about your life!

I'm a 18 yr old cis bisexual white girl
and angry feminist. And even though I'm now a legal adult do not send me sexual messages or pictures kthxbye

I generally only post in English, but I know how to speak German and French and I love love love foreign languages in general (currently trying to learn Chinese and hoping to take an Arabic class in college).

 But it is not as scary when you have someone to face it with.

autistic ppl’s worth is not dependent on whether they can work an office job, or whether they have a mysterious skill in the maths or sciences, or whether they can pass as neurotypical in everyday life. not conforming to abled standards of being a Productive Member Of Society does not make your life and your achievements have any less value.

"why be straight and cis when u can be queer and tr-"

hi lets not treat lgbtq+ identities like fashion trends

ok but answer me this: why am i so fashionable and trendy

How about we stop treating queerness as a tragic disease first?

I’m gonna depress the hell out of all of you. ready? ok go

so, that “stop devaluing feminized work post”

nice idea and all

but the thing is, as soon as a decent number of women enter any field, it becomes “feminized,” and it becomes devalued.

as women enter a field in greater number, people become less willing to pay for it, the respect for it drops, and it’s seen as less of a big deal. it’s not about the job- it’s about the number of women in the job.

observe what happened with biology. it’s STEM, sure, but anyone in a male-dominated science will sneer at the idea of it being ‘for real,’ nevermind that everyone sure took it more seriously when it was a male dominated field. so has happened with scores of other areas; nursing comes to mind

so the thing is, it’s not the work or the job that has to be uplifted and seen as more respectable. it will never work out, until people start seeing women as respectable

but there’s a doozy and who the fuck knows if it’s ever happening in my life time

"observe what happened with biology. it’s STEM, sure, but anyone in a male-dominated science will sneer at the idea of it being ‘for real,’ nevermind that everyone sure took it more seriously when it was a male dominated field."

Personal anecdote time!  I’m in a biology graduate program.  An acquaintance wanted to introduce some guy to me because his son was thinking about becoming an undergrad science major.  When he found out I was in the biology department, he grinned and said, “Well, I guess that’s kind of related to science.”

I gave him what I hope was an icy look and said, “Isn’t it strange how men outside the field started saying that right around the time biology majors shifted from mostly male to mostly female?”

The guy got this look on his face like he was about to play the “just a joke” card, and then an older woman who had been standing nearby, talking to someone else, turned to me and said, “The same thing happened with real estate.”  She went on to explain that, over the course of the career, the male-to-female ratio among real estate agents had dropped, and the pay and “prestige factor” of that job dropped along with it.

I like to think she wears a jumper because a bakery is the only place warm enough for her demonic skin.

Vote for the next one!

The Boxtrolls is transmisogynist

phoenixhobbit:

So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.

I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very transmisogynist. I do not advise anyone, especially trans women, to see this film. I’ll explain why below.

TW FOR THE CONTENT BELOW. It contains spoilers and descriptions of transmisogyny.

I wouldn’t necessarily mind people not knowing I’m gay, but I don’t like being thought of as straight — in the same way that I don’t mind people not knowing I’m a writer, but it would be awkward if they assumed I was an extreme skateboarder, because that’s so far removed from the reality of my life. But there is no blank slate where orientation is concerned; we are straight until proven otherwise. And if you’ve never seen how dramatically a conversation can be derailed by a casual admission of homosexuality, let me tell you, it gets awkward.

Update on the move for a national inquiry into the many missing indigenous women in Canada

The conservatives continue to block a public inquiry (same shit)
They’re “compromise” is accepting the opening of roundtable on the issue (notebably evading the kind of accountability of a public inquiry)
There weren’t enough Conservative mps who actually showed up to the house of commons on Friday to use their majority to block a debate and so the proposal for a debate by the Liberals and NDP was successful
There was a debate in our house if Commons on whether or not a Public Inquiry will be held into the 1000+ missing indigenous women
After just over an hour the debate was put on hold by the conservatives to move on to private members business

But the remaining time allotted to this debate has to be used the debate has to resume within 10 sittings of parliament.

If you’re Canadian PLEASE KEEP UP WITH THIS DEBATE CONTACT YOUR MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT TELL THEM NOT TO DELAY RESUMING THE DEBATE TELL THEM HOW CRITICAL THIS ISSUE IS DEMAND THAT INDIGENOUS WOMEN’S DISAPEARENCES NOT BE IGNORED
