“The buzz word in popular feminism today is empowerment. When I became a feminist many years ago, the word we used was liberation. Unlike empowerment, liberation is a collective concept which means that even if my life is all rosy and “empowered,” it doesn’t mean shit for those women who are doing low paid jobs while trying to raise families. In fact, there is a very good chance that elite women’s empowerment is built on the backs of other women whose exploited labor provides the goods and services that enable a good career and a comfortable lifestyle. The low pay of nannies, cooks, cleaners, sweat shop workers, and day care providers means that wealthier women are freed up to make a salary that no doubt does feel empowering.”—
a friendly reminder: COLLEGE IS NOT FOR EVERYONE - people who went/go to college are not ‘better’ or ‘smarter’ than anyone else - there is no right time to pursue ‘higher education’ - no matter what, you are still a person and you deserve to be treated with respect
as annoyed as I am with chopped’s new “every basket is ___” format, I am really very excited for “every basket is bacon!,” which I am watching right now, but also food network should just realize we’ve all moved on to cutthroat kitchen maybe.
Like I just put my hair in the two messy pigtail buns to prove that i had too much hair for the tiny ponytails from K’s mom (woops, I was wrong, they fit!), and because I am 200% committed to looking as terrible as possible/as adorable as possible, whenever possible.
today one of my… co..ameri..corpses? was like “you actually did your hair today.” and this is just so indicative of how bad I am at anything relating to looking presentable, because… I was not aware? that throwing your hair into two messy pigtail buns? was “doing it.”
I barely drink anymore but I am contemplating drinking tonight to counteract the effects of the Monster I decided to have, this sounds like some very college logic of mine, my college logic was not my best logic.
But like also it is 10:09 and I am wide awake and that sounds pretty “duh” but it is not very duh for me lately, I am embracing being a morning person.
