In 2010, there were 8 school shootings in the US.
In 2011, there were 10.
In 2012, there were 14.
In 2013? 28.
If that doesn’t horrify you, then I don’t know what would.
I stumbled upon a tumblr today that helps writers accurately represent characters with racial / nationalistic / religious / sexual orientation (and so on) differences than their own.
The site allows you to submit your own experiences and/or get into contact with others that have in order to enhance the depiction of characters in your creative writing.
What a great idea!
This is a wonderful resource though.
If you consider yourself an MRA, please unfollow me now.
If you think the “friendzone” is a legitimate thing, please unfollow me now.
If you think that that murderer’s actions are in any way validated by what the women around him did or didn’t do, please unfollow me now.
If you can look at what happened and honestly tell yourself you agree with the same things he agreed with, I want nothing to do with you. Please unfollow me.
Always remember that women who call themselves feminists will be accused so many times of being man-haters, but when a man kills women just for being women, he is called mentally unwell, and a madman rather than a woman-hater or misogynist.
This is exactly what I’ve been saying/thinking.
why is it that no one ever disputes the grammatical validity of the singular ‘they’ until it’s made explicitly clear by context that it’s referring to a non-binary person?
if I said, “Someone left their umbrella here, I hope they come back to pick it up,” no one would think twice.
but as soon as I say, “Alex left their umbrella here, I hope they come to back to pick it up,” suddenly the word ‘they’ cannot ever be singular.
scuse u but no
