"Show me your worst,
And I will show you
How I love you
Just the same."
It turns out my mom + baby boot camp is legit.
After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?
“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.
This. Is. Not. OK.

I go to the University of Utah and I literally had no idea this was happening. Wow. Not surprised though. There’s a lot of hatred here, under the repressed white heteronormativity.
Right after my conversation tonight about the first woman president (which will happen someday so just get over it) … hm, this is promising for our world. Ugh.
"Passion is different than emotion. Emotion demands the moment; passion demands a marathon. Emotion looks for what it can get; passion looks for what it can give. Emotion is necessary, even powerful, but passion is the daily fire of momentum when you fall out of like with something. It burns without burning you."
