Randomosity!
I read, I write, I sleep, I write some more. I reblog random things. Some might be useful for writing, others spark ideas, and some just make me laugh. One of these days I'll tag everything... Rinse, repeat.
Sometimes I do actual work in there. More often I goof off and daydream about how awesome my life will be when my books get published.
I'm telling you stories; trust me.

You forgot that little patch of san francisco where we are temperate all year long.

Lol, Satan’s armpit is accurate for Az

A young Jewish refugee with her Chinese playmates. Shanghai, China (x)

Between 1933 and 1941, it is estimated that 20,000 Jews escaped persecution by fleeing to the Chinese port of Shanghai. Shanghai was one of the few places in the world that would accept Jewish refugees at this time, Japan being another.

i am furious that i am just now learning about this important fact.

Because it has nothing to do with the USA being the superhero and saving all the Jews

Also cause, ya know, it has nothing to do with the USA.
So it’s not taught in US history.
Which is about the US.

This scene right there gave such an unrealistic expectation about how easy it is to apply make-up

That’s because most animators are male.

Parineeti Chopra speaks out about the attitude Indian men have towards women and their periods (menstrual cycle). [X]

I love how Natasha is just like “…meh” when Sam says that.

What Happened to the Computer Girls? 
Believe it or not, in the 1960’s, programming was seen as women’s work. It was even touted as being “just like planning a dinner”.
So what happened?
Eventually male programmers wanted to raise their status above “women’s work”. So they actively discouraged women from these positions, designed hiring tests rigged for men, and even created the stereotype that programmers are disinterested in people. No wonder in the years since, it’s still a male dominated field. Women earned only 18% of the computer science degrees awarded in 2008-2011. 
Alright ladies, we need to bust this myth. It’s been too long. Find organizations like Scientista or Sally Ride Science that help encourage women and girls in STEM interests. Find mentors and connect with other women interested in STEM. 

Computer Science departments in universities are some of the most racist, sexist, downright misogynist hell holes, with the worst kind of men. Everyone from male professors to male TAs are bullying arseholes who eschew the worst kind of “white male victim” complex. Not only do they treat female students like crap, they also pick on female professors in the department. Many male professors don’t help female students, and male TAs are creepy fucks who think they can flirt with you if you go to them for help, especially if you’re a non-white woman.

A friend of mine shared this post on Twitter today about something one of her friend’s witnessed in NYC last night, and I felt it was important for us to post it on here - as a way of both getting the word out and seeing if anyone has any way of helping the situation (blogging, writing an article, knowledge of a missing person, etc.) Please share if you can - there has to be something we can do to help. It is possible to get in touch with the original source - please first email it to projectunbreakable@gmail.com and we will forward it to her. 

Jesus fucking Christ.

Jesus fucking Christ.

Fuck cops, and fuck rape culture.

I wonder how long we’ll stay friends on Facebook.

I literally just deleted someone for sharing that picture! Was a coincidence

It’s just this fucking idea that if you’re less intelligent than someone else you deserve a lower standard of living than your ‘betters’.

I also just deleted someone for sharing that picture!
