So I think we were all pretty righteously pissed off today. And then Greg Rucka reminded us all why we buy so many of his comics.
And like some lesser designs, you can also buy this on a shirt.
thank u for being a cooler blog than me and not unfollowing me yet
I rarely use this to just blog. I’m going to just blog now, so you can all just ignore this if it’s not to your liking.
Warning. Contents under pressure.
Wow. Greg Rucka is super for reals not here for your sexist bullshit in nerd or geek communities. Also, something that stuck out to me was this passage:
"Portland Public Schools has a lottery system to get into its magnet programs. For two years, our daughter has been dreaming of attending one specific middle school, one that’s art focused. She’s been in a science-and-math magnet program, and she’s done very well there, mind, but the social aspect… it’s been grinding her down. She was looking to escape. She was looking to go to a place where, she imagined, she could be who she is and not suffer for it."
His daughter, thriving academically in the math and science program is looking to leave for an art program because the SOCIAL ASPECT (read: sexist microaggressions based on her gender) is wearing her down.
And what’s devastating to me and so many others who will nod their heads while reading this post is that even if she overcomes this particular gauntlet and sticks with science and math? There’s going to be another one. And another one. And another one. All through high school, undergrad, graduate school, her first job, her entire career. Until she quits because she just can’t take another day of suffering to be simply who she is. Because there’s not enough support or resources or even people acknowledging that it is a *systemic* problem that needs to be addressed at every level.
How bad do things have to get?

They make apps for that!
FUNNY YOU SHOULD MENTION THIS! I was literally just about to go hunt down an app for it. :D

That’s going on with me right now, and I’m supposed to drink a lot for the transplant. I just can’t seem to do it!
Yeah. Now that I’m starting run/walking, I’m going to have to set reminders for myself to drink a bunch during the day. By the time I’m out training it’s a bit too late. :/

Fluids? What fluids? *g*
Pretty sure that’s exactly what my kidneys and muscles are asking at this point.
How have I made it this far as a supposed adult without being able to get myself to drink enough fluids each day?
