I am fire. I am death.
Gender Feels and Fragility, a summer novel by me.
I want to read in class
In light of the 50 Shades of Grey trailer coming out today, quick reminder that that book is about an abusive and controlling relationship, not BDSM.
Fanfiction (published or not) is important for women of all ages to explore gender roles and sexuality in a way that is less stigmatized and more accessible.
But do not do the BDSM community a disservice by calling the relationship described in the book a BDSM experience.

I think my next (first? Though maybe the eggpet was first. Or the shadow house. Anyway) big creative code project will be to make a Mario-style game controlled with DDR-style footpads. There’s a tutorial for making Mario on Processing, and while it’ll still take a lot of time and effort, I’m sure I can follow that tutorial. And then I’ll hook it up to pressure-sensors and an Arduino or cheat and just use a makey-makey and voila! Awesome fun game.
mainstream tumblr feminism may have many glaring faults but it has bred an army of teenage girls who understand the common ways that misogyny is reinforced in society and who know that they’re better off loving their fellow woman than fighting with her and that’s actually pretty damn revolutionary
One time when my music theory professor was a student in college, he had to accompany an extremely rude soprano for a recital. She treated him like dirt during rehearsals. Just before going on to perform, she made some really snide remark to him that ticked him off, so he transposed the piece up a half step. She cracked three times.
Always be nice to your accompanists, folks.
There is a special place in hell for people that are rude to their accompanists
