My husband grabbed this for me from the librarians at the high school and even though I’m going to school to teach foreign language and history and not literature…this totally makes me want to change my major just so I can teach a class devoted to John Green lol. (Kinda bummed they don’t use Will Grayson Will Grayson…and common core will always be common crap, but some of the lesson plans are actually really neat)

It’s also interesting that our super religious area is cool with providing teachers the tools to teach his stuff while other schools are banning them. Yay GHHS.

you a bitch

It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.

What’s more, it’s been shown that copula deletion occurs in AAVE exactly in those contexts where copula contraction occurs in so-called “Standard American English.” That is, the basic sentence “You are great” can become “You’re great” in SAE and “You great” in AAVE, but “I know who you are” cannot become “I know who you’re” in SAE, and according to reports, neither can you get “I know who you” in AAVE.

In other words, AAVE is a set of grammatical rules just as complex and systematic as SAE, and the widespread belief that it is not is nothing more than yet another manifestation of deeply internalized racism.

I love linguistics!

Niggas out here trappin women

Then wonder how your ass got burned

what the fuck…

I’ve had a dude do that before. that shit is terrifying. Dude went across the room like he typically would to get one. Came back and I didn’t know that he didn’t have one until he pulled out.

I FLIPPED. Cried all the way home. Cried for days. Got tested. Bought the morning after pill. Seriously, fuck dudes that do this. There should be laws against it.

There ARE laws against this. It’s called rape by deception or fraudulent rape and basically, it’s anytime the conditions of your consent are compromised. In a situation like this, you consented to protected sex. By having sex in a way you did not consent to, a crime WAS committed and he could be charged if any physical effects like pregnancy or STD occurred. Remember, ANY SEXUAL ACTIVITY YOU DON’T CONSENT TO IS RAPE. 

If a guy does this, it’s rape. Call the cops. Ruin his life since he has no problem risking yours. Make him fucking learn. Rapists belong in jail. Rape by deception is rape, not a funny “meme”. 

This is incredibly important for everyone to see!! EVERYONE

yes YOU NEED THIS ON YOUR DASH EVERYONE

Help me get to France!

Okay, so I found out that I am “the poster child of the failure to fund higher education” (GVSU and FAFSA’s words not mine). According to aforementioned financial aid services, My husband and I are just financially stable enough to not warrant the Pell Grant but also not financially stable enough…because GVSU says that I have “too much need” for other financial help. Essentially we are too stable for government help, but not stable enough for GVSU help; this means currently I am not getting the funding I need. The even worse part of this? Not qualifying for the Pell means that I no longer qualify for about 98% of all of the scholarships that I could have gotten to help pay for study abroad, so unless there is some divine intervention, I will more than likely not be going to France this February like was planned. 

Several of you recommended setting up a gofundme for study abroad, and although I am incredibly reluctant to post this, I went ahead and made one. There are perks attached if any of them catch your fancy. If not feel free to ignore it!

Please signal boost if you can! I’m hoping I can maybe convince my fellow Gishers to use our great community to help spread the word and maybe the lovely supernatural family as well. <3

11 ways to solve rape better than nail polish

The more we depend on women to prevent rape, the easier it is to blame them when it happens to them. Here’s a look at the well-documented ways we can actually stop rape. Maybe it’s time we invest a little more time and resources into implementing them before we send gallons of nail polish to colleges across the country.
