I'm a white-passing latina. This blog is mostly made up of feminist posts, with a good helping of pugs (check out my "pug" tag) and various fandoms. Enjoy.

Probably one of the best tweets I’ve ever come across tbh.

Congratulations to Ivy Taylor, who was elected this week and made history as the first ever African American mayor of San Antonio, Texas! On Tuesday Taylor announced her plans to improve the city, and said, “I’ve always been committed to working with everyone in our community, even though we may not always agree on every issue.”

See this is actually a really neat look at how history works.

Who writes the history books?

The survivors.

Who survives?

The victors.

well

Infrared sound is a sound that we can’t hear but our ears can detect. Between 7Hz and 19Hz it can install the sense of being watched, dread, fear and panic. At 19Hz the sounds can vibrate with your eyeball, messing with your visions and causing you to think you can see figures in your peripheral vision.
Old houses and buildings have thick walls and messed up pipes which can emit infrared sounds. This is how haunted houses can come to be. 
The problem is not everyone is sensitive to this type of sound. Do you want to figure out if you are sensitive to this “ghostly noise”?
Well you can, because when tigers roar they emit infrared sound. Go on this website and scroll to the paragraph on roars and click on the speaker icon.

If you feel scared then you’re probably sensitive to it.

NEXT TIME ON DETECTIVE HALE: will he realise that the red liquid on the floor is blood, will he work out that the non-breathing person is dead and will Miss Tate ever stop being so easily impressed? TUNE IT FOR THE NEXT EPISODE.

"If I perform this emergency abortion I’m a murderer!!!"

No, bro. You’re a murderer if you let your pregnant patient die in your office because you refused them an emergency abortion.

As a medical professional, let me say this: If you will not put your patient first—if you will not perform life saving medical care because of your own beliefs—stay the fuck out of the field.

We have enough abusive and ableist people in the field as it is.

Attanya: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because I love science fiction and fantasy books, but I’m tired of authors treating dragons and robots and magic as more plausible than black and brown characters

Jennifer: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because… when I was 13 a white girl told me it was selfishthat all of the protagonists in my stories were Latina because she “just can’t relate to nonwhite characters.” She made me feel guilty for writing about people like me. 

Aiesha: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because…Black Girls are more than sidekicks or “sassy, ghetto friend”

Facts and Figures About Race/Ethnicity in YA and Children’s Lit:

#WENEEDDIVERSEBOOKS

Posting this a little late, but followers please take the time out to check out this post explaining the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign and more events to come over the next few days! 

Just a reminder that representation is still an uphill battle.

There was a time that I wanted to write stories about my daughter and her adventures. I just suck at writing though
