girls being kept out of the sciences and pushed into the humanities; the humanities being valued less in our society than the sciences; and the humanities and sciences being looked at as stark opposites that couldn’t possibly be enjoyed for the same reasons are all problems that need to in some degree be tackled together 

#THE FALSE DICHOTOMY BETWEEN THOUGHT AND FEELING (via lavenderblues)

These are forms of male aggression that only women see. But even when men are afforded a front seat to harassment, they don’t always have the correct vantage point for recognizing the subtlety of its operation. Four years before the murders, I was sitting in a bar in Washington, D.C. with a male friend. Another young woman was alone at the bar when an older man scooted next to her. He was aggressive, wasted, and sitting too close, but she smiled curtly at his ramblings and laughed softly at his jokes as she patiently downed her drink. ‘Why is she humoring him?’ my friend asked me. ‘You would never do that.’ I was too embarrassed to say: ‘Because he looks scary’ and ‘I do it all the time.’

Women who have experienced this can recognize that placating these men is a rational choice, a form of self-defense to protect against setting off an aggressor. But to male bystanders, it often looks like a warm welcome, and that helps to shift blame in the public eye from the harasser and onto his target, who’s failed to respond with the type of masculine bravado that men more easily recognize.

From the Earth to the Moon: Trailers


Compilation of trailers for HBO’s From the Earth to the Moon miniseries. The one from 1:20 to 2:40 is my favorite. Chills.

I finally finished watching the miniseries, just in time for the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing on July 20.

The last episode had me choking up. Wish I had a transcript of it, because some of the quotes were really profound. The soundtrack and visuals were extraordinary, particularly for a production from 1998.
