There is no litmus test to determine if someone is asexual. Asexuality is like any other identity- at its core, it’s just a word that people use to help figure themselves out. If at any point someone finds the word asexual useful to describe themselves, we encourage them to use it for as long as it makes sense to do so.

As many as 15 percent of freshmen at America’s top schools are white students who failed to meet their university’s minimum standards for admission, according to Peter Schmidt, deputy editor of the Chronicle of Higher Education. These kids are “people with a long-standing relationship with the university,” or in other words, the children of faculty, wealthy alumni and politicians.
According to Schmidt, these unqualified but privileged kids are nearly twice as common on top campuses as Black and Latino students who had benefited from affirmative action.
This is EXTREMELY blatant on college campuses. The fact that these things need to be clarified is sad.
Legacy is the real affirmative action…and yet we don’t see certain types of entitled people suing to dismantle that.

Toni: I just think that if I had a little more here, and a little less there, I’d be perfect. Is that crazy?

Did it ever occur to you that we don’t want to get in touch with our feelings? That actually feeling our feelings might make it impossible to survive in here?
I have worked out what my new writing project will be
So yesterday, I was thinking of a new idea for a book.
My boyfriend is an officer in the Royal Australian Air Force and has a professional/personal interest in possible new conflict zones in the future and their impacts. We often talk about this and I find it a fascinating subject.
This prompted the idea of a fiction work, but one that is as accurate as possible and extremely well researched.
Its going to be set in 30 years time in conflict zones. Possibly over South/South East Asia or Russian expansion across parts of Europe and the middle east. (They are predicted to be the biggest conflict zones in the future).
It will explore the inter-playing dynamics with predicted civil wars and conflicts within and between countries and regional implications.Written from multiple perspectives the different sides of the conflicts from different levels eg. government heads/faction leaders, troops, medical and aid providers and populations.
Focusing on the use of psychological warfare, social psychology, the psychology of revolutions and trauma. Backed with a wider general focus on economics, international support, resources and geographical positions, cultural and religious influence and the positive/negatives from each level of perspective.
While also accounting for the possible influence of new technology and weaponry and the changing dynamics of warfare/politics in the future.
Similar futuristic conflict novels have been written but none have the psychological focus mine will. Which I think will make it unique.
What do you think? Would you read it?

fuck fuck fuck fuck PTSD
[TW: nightmares, child abuse]
Just woke myself up screaming and crying after a particularly bad flashback nightmare. I’m still in tears and I can’t stop shaking.
I can still feel everything from back then, the sadness, the desperation, the anger and even the pain. My nightmares are so realistic that the injuries I sustained- I still feel the pain of it.
My side hurts so fucking much, the same level of pain as when my father decided it would be “fun” to vent his anger and frustration on me as a kid and break a couple of my ribs.
So much for sleep being restful. :/
A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it
