There are so many memories in here. Feast on them!
I honestly can’t believe this right now. I was complaining to my bf about some Kotex tampons I had used, going on a bit of a rant about how bad they were, and on a whim I decided to go to the website and leave a review so other people who might get them would know better.
I’ve never written a tampon review in my life (it’s not something I ever anticipated doing) so I had a little fun getting very passionate about my thoughts, and then went to submit…. Only to receive the words: ‘Your review text contains inappropriate language.’ I was confused at first, I mean I was pretty emphatic, but I didn’t cuss at all… and then I realized: I had typed the word ‘vagina.’
You can’t type the word ‘vagina’ on a TAMPON review because it’s considered inappropriate.
KOTEX, a company that makes OVER A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR primarily selling products to people with vaginas, thinks that someone typing the word “VAGINA” in a review of a product that goes IN THEIR VAGINA is being inappropriate and needs to be censored.
I retyped “v*gina” with an asterisk like it was a swear word, submitted and it went to preview mode with no problem. But I’m still kind of in shock… Honestly, what is wrong with Kotex that they think they need to protect tampon users from the word ‘vagina’?
If you didn’t think our society’s fear of the vagina was absurd, here you go. It’s cartoonish.
people say ‘I love you’ in a lot of different ways
'get some sleep'
'here have my fries'
'Im gonna draw you something'
'it's okay, I'll pay'
'do u want me to bring u the rest of my burrito'
if you don’t think this carries an important message about our society then you are what is wrong with human society today
And this is why when you see a post empowering and uplifting black women, do not invade it with “don’t you mean all women.” No, because this is not the reality of “all women.”

Evidence of #education on my desk in the form of growth mindset reminders…
Oh my gosh. I need to do this.
The weight that I borrowed from the athletic department is still on my desk.
Tomorrow I’m giving a summative assessment that may be either introduced or concluded with emphatic gestures featuring a hand weight. But this makes me happy to see.
Can someone make me one of these for my desk? heheh
"I think what we need is a colorblind society." Now folks, when you hear somebody say that you know you’re listening to a racist…

Jane Elliot is the fucking truth
she goes “i know this maybe hard for you because white males are accustomed to telling people things not listening to people so let me break it down for you”
i have died and she has resurrected me
There was a time in the early 90’s where people were really talking about race and what it meant to be black."white males are accustomed to telling people things not listening to people." goddamn yesThis is a great ally.Jane Elliott has been going HARD in the Paintsince right after MLK’s assassination in 1968.
Respect is owed and must be given.
