privilege is supposed to be a concept once understood that opens up to discussions of traditional power structures. people dwell on privilege because it’s knowledge one can possess or not and that is, more or less, simply comprehensible. it doesn’t take much critical thinking to comprehend one’s…

I love being Irish. What I hate is the yearly display of crying, arguing, and public drunkenness that goes with it.

 “Student loans are destroying the imagination of youth. If there’s a way of a society committing mass suicide, what better way than to take all the youngest, most energetic, creative, joyous people in your society and saddle them with, like $50,000 of debt ..? There goes your music. There goes your culture. There goes everything new that would pop out. And in a way, this is what’s happened to our society. We’re a society that has lost any ability to incorporate the interesting, creative and eccentric people.” ~ David Graeber

a word spoken by sunlight: Borderline Personality Disorder: the diagnosis that gaslights you!

cascadingholarchy:

foxship:

So I don’t think I have BPD but I have been diagnosed with it, and once you have been diagnosed BPD you can never not have it.

It’s like when you’re at a party and someone says “You’re so drunk lol” even though you haven’t drunk anything but every time you protest you sound MORE drunk. When you tell someone you don’t have BPD, they think, “wow, she’s being argumentative about it. Definitely has BPD.”

I was 19 when I was diagnosed by a psychiatrst who talked to me for around half an hour. BPD makes you feel like a bad person. Every time I was in an argument I would think, “I must be wrong, I have BPD.” Every time I felt something strongly, I’d think, “I’m emotional, it’s just the BPD.” If someone abused me, I’d think, “I’m overreacting. Because of the BPD.” All my emotions felt invalid. Reasonable efforts to protect myself or stand up for myself felt wrong, because I had BPD and everything I thought or felt was wrong.

I really don’t think I fit the criteria. I don’t think I ever have. But even if I did, I question the wisdom of diagnosing me or anyone with BPD because it’s almost another way of saying everything you or do or think is wrong.

It’s like the 21st century version of 19th century hysteria. You’re a WOMAN and you’re COMPLAINING. Here’s a diagnosis to tell you HOW WRONG YOU ARE.

Just got diagnosed with this lololol fmllll

YES …I think the same can be said of bipolar and ADD/ADHD. My doctors have refused to diagnose me simply because of the stigma and they used the phrase “life sentence.”  

Screw your Bake Sale, I'll Spend My Time Reading To My Kid

If your kid is coming home every day with handouts asking for help with planning fundraisers/volunteering or straight up asking for money — and you are wondering if the PTA does anything other than fundraising — this article is for you.

The gist: spending time reading to your kid or talking about books or just creating a love of learning is a better return on investment than volunteering for the latest PTA fundraising event.

I understand that in the days of budget cut mania it’s important to raise money for your kid’s school… but why can’t this be a separate committee? Why can’t the PTA focus on things like after school enrichment programs, skill sharing workshops, tutoring, etc? I would guess these type of things would require more of your time than your money. I don’t get it. Maybe this is just my school district. Are there any parents/members out there who can say their PTA focuses more on education enrichment than fundraising?

i believe in dropping knowledge bombs.
It's for the children.
