this pic is crucial


being called “racist” isn’t an insult or something mean that people are saying to you because they want to bring you down. if you’re being called racist you shouldn’t be brushing it off because you “can’t see the haters” you should be assessing your behaviour, your language, and mindset for signs of prejudice, discrimination, and sympathy/support for unfair and violent treatment towards racially persecuted people in your country

I have so much respect for people who have the maturity and humility to admit that they were wrong about something. they’re a rarity. and that’s a shame cause admission to error is essential to growth

A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.

This is why we need feminism.

Anonymous asked: Hi! I'm a UCSC transfer student and I'll be taking Syntax I this fall! I'm considering minoring in history or lit though (I'm a ling major), so I'll also be taking one upper div lit class and one upper div history class. Do you think that'll be too much to handle? I'm a good student, but I don't want to be too in over my head! What's the work load like for Syntax I? Like, how many hours a day and/or week will I spend on homework?


First of all I wanna thank you and others who have come to me seeking ling advice—I’m gonna be a Peer Advisor this year in my department so it’s kinda nice that I already have some experience advising people through the major via internet. If you (or anyone) encounter other questions during the school year, come see me (or any of the other super fabulous PAs) and we will be more than happy to help ya! (:

Anonymous asked: What are your favorite recipes?


The first thing that pops into my head is this lasagna recipe. It’s butternut squash, kale, and a ton of cheese, basically. I made it for my housemates one day last year and they all really liked it. I’ve been meaning to make it again soon…

There was this Six Ingredients or Less cookbook I liked as a kid that had a nice recipe for one of those groundbeef+salsa+macaroni+cheese things, basically like Hamburger Helper but from scratch. I tend to make that for potlucks just because it’s easy and generally a crowd pleaser if most of the people I’m cooking for eat meat/dairy. (aka the potlucks I attend at home)

My mom makes a really good kale salad that I’ve adopted: kale with sliced apples, candied pecans (she candies her own while I get mine from Trader Joe’s), grated parmesan cheese, and lemon rind, dressed with lemon juice, olive oil, and a hint of chili powder. It’s simple but really flavorful and also a good potluck dish (aka the potlucks I attend in Santa Cruz). I like kale salads because they don’t get all wilty, in fact the longer the salad is dressed the better it seems to get. How often can the leftovers you take to school/work for lunch the next day be a salad and not be gross??? Beautiful.
