"In 2009, an exhaustive study published by sociologists at Princeton Uinversity found that when measured on an all-things-being-equal basis, Asian Americans were required to score at least 140 points higher than whites on standardized tests, in order to qualify for admission into top universities."
I’m just having the greatest time at Smith.
"A racist woman is not a feminist;
she doesn’t care about helping women, just the women who look like her and can buy the same things she can.A transphobic woman is not a feminist;
she is overly concerned with policing the bodies and expressions of others.A woman against reproductive rights
— to use bell hook’s own example, and an issue close to your heart — is not a feminist;
she prioritizes her dogma or her disgust over the bodies of others. An ableist woman is not a feminist;
she holds some Platonic ideal of what a physically or mentally “whole” person should be and tries to force the world to fit inside it."
"I think it’s weird that teenage girls know more about giving blowjobs than they do about masturbation. It makes me sick to my stomach that so many young girls think sex is just about a guy finishing."
the police in ferguson are gonna drag this out as long as possible because they’re smart enough to know that the longer it drags on, the less the media will cover it, the less people will care, and the less they have to be responsible for. they don’t want the conflict to end because if it ended now, there might still be some accountability demanded. they know if they can make it drag on for another week or more, that every day it continues they’re less and less likely to receive any punishment for human rights violations because public interest will continue to drop. they’re tiring out and exhausting any defiance or anger.
So… I’m not breaking up with him apparently.. (wooooooooooooow sophia.)
"Intimacy is not who you let touch you. Intimacy is who you text at 3am about your dreams and fears. Intimacy is giving someone your attention, when ten other people are asking for it. Intimacy is the person always in the back of your mind, no matter how distracted you are."
The community in Ferguson is struggling to come up with the money to keep their kids fed, since school has been cancelled all this time, yet people have donated over $12,000 to the murderer who started all of this in the last 24 hours alone. Think about that. And then donate to the right cause.
YOU KNOW WHATS FUCKING STUPID
WHEN YOUR FAMILY MAKES YOU GO SOMEWHERE WITH THEM AND YOU TELL THEM YOU DONT WANT TO

"Being happy is a very personal thing—and it really has nothing to do with anyone else ."
Its better to bring it up, than to wait for him to guess and say it.
I will formally talk to him about it on the morning before I leave for college (Friday.) I refused to bring it up until then for personal reasons.
