About

I complain about the mundane and get distracted by the ridiculous

I live in Minneapolis. I realize this makes me boring and irrelevant to most of tumblr. I stick around anyway.

I created Bringing Up Baby to satisfy my baby-makin' alter ego. If you like cute babies, poop and discussion of the state of my vahj, you'll probably enjoy reading it.

I’ve made it all this time without getting nominated for the ALS challenge

My husband isn’t on facebook and those closest to me aren’t frequent users so I figured I would totally ride out this trend and escape nomination.

My brother-in-law used Mac in his video tonight and nominated me.

Fuck.

This is one of my favorite songs because it’s just about the prettiest song ever.

I don’t really understand how that is a question up for discussion on television news. I mean, even putting aside the gajillion ways that white people are privileged by, for instance, being able to think that whiteness is “normal,” studying world history from Eurocentric perspectives,  and etc etc:
- White people are less likely to be arrested for the same crime than black people, and black people serve longer (much longer!) sentences than white people.
- Marijuana use is similar among black and white populations in the U.S., but young African Americans are more than THREE TIMES more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession or use than white Americans. 
- Racial bias in hiring in the U.S. is well-documented and persistent.
- African American students are far more likely to be punished in schools, even though they are not much more likely to break school rules than their white peers.
- Even after accounting for reasons like education disparity, geographical distribution, and occupation, there is a persistent wage gap: White people make are paid more than African Americans due to racial discrimination. 
- White people in the U.S. on average have lower mortgage rates than African Americans.
White privilege is a fact of every facet of American life. I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here, but this is not a political issue or a subject for debate. It is well-documented and irrefutable.

Shower thought

How nice it must be to say something like, “women are terrible drivers and shouldn’t be allowed behind the wheel of an SUV” or “girls are such drama queens” or “chicks are always such a tease” and have that be accepted as a universal truth. How nice it must be, when confronted with a woman telling you that’s an unfair stereoptype, to be able to simply roll your eyes and think her protests are cute and completely misguided. And how nice it must be to get inordinately bent out of shape when someone dares to stereotype your gender.

How nice to be the oppressor of so many and yet have the biggest victim complex of everyone.

The original is good, the comment is STUNNING. Love it!

So, basically, this is a symbolic representation of internalized misogyny:

I am not here to let racist bullshit articles be presented as arguments against everything that’s happening in Ferguson right now.
