'Till Tonight Do Us Part

Taryn. I'm 19. I'm me and I rock that. I'm pretty liberal, so that will be reflected here, fair warning. Mostly reblogs, but some bits and pieces of me. Trying to grow more aware every day. This blog will consist of fandomy posts, posts from or about creative people I like, feminist-based posts and personal stuff. Feels. Feelings. My life.

The first thing this librarian needs to understand is that the bookmobile doesn’t belong to her. It belongs to the public, including children.

Pat Scales responds regarding a ‘conservative’ librarian who wants to keep “Wimpy Kid” and “Captain Underpants” out of the bookmobile that she mans.

In 1979, when the minimum wage was $2.90, a hard-working student with a minimum-wage job could earn enough in one day (8.44 hours) to pay for one academic credit hour. If a standard course load for one semester consisted of maybe 12 credit hours, the semester’s tuition could be covered by just over two weeks of full-time minimum wage work—or a month of part-time work. A summer spent scooping ice cream or flipping burgers could pay for an MSU education. The cost of an MSU credit hour has multiplied since 1979. So has the federal minimum wage. But today, it takes 60 hours of minimum-wage work to pay off a single credit hour, which was priced at $428.75 for the fall semester.

i feel like this study deserves an article written about it that ends pushing for cheaper tuition costs rather than one that ends encouraging students to major in things that make money

The last three Disney films that starred POC were the Emperor’s New Groove in 2000, Brother Bear in 2003 and Princess and the Frog in 2009.

What did they have in common?

What are your thoughts on Laverne Cox not making the time 100, despite her getting like the fifth most votes in the polls?


fishingboatproceeds:

Laverne Cox is the most visible trans person of color in the world and she has helped millions of people to learn about trans people and the discrimination they face. I think Laverne Cox is one of the most important and influential people in the world and should’ve been included in the TIME 100.
