I love these so much you don’t even know
greatest history lesson ever created
I don’t want your sympathy through this post. I just want to know if people actually give a fuck about me. I know I won’t even get one note, let alone 50,000.
If you dont reblog this I will be sad.
Did you know:
I hate myself?
I barely eat?
That my smiles fake?
I bottle everything up?
I’m bullied in school?
I hate the way you guys treat me sometimes?
I lie sometimes?
The things I do are for you and not myself?
That I have low self esteem
And way more
You don’t know everything about me, so stop saying you do.
Steve Bowler tweeted a photo of an assignment that his 8-year-old daughter’s teacher said she did incorrectly. The homework assignment had a list of toys or activities, and the kids were supposed to categorize them based on whether they were for boys, girls, or both, with equal numbers in each box. The assignment takes for granted the gendering of toys, and that there is a “correct” answer to the question of which gender they are appropriate for.
Bowler’s daughter did the assignment differently. After placing 3 items in the “boys” category and 2 in the “girls” group, she made additional boxes to add more things in the “both” column.
But at the bottom, the teacher notes that the assignment wasn’t done correctly. The point of the assignment is to categorize; the implicit message — that boys and girls are different types of people who like different types of things — isn’t questioned. A child sees this list of items and doesn’t gender them in the way the lesson took for granted; the reaction wasn’t to acknowledge her innovation and perhaps question the gendering, it was simply to say she did it wrong.
Bowler, for the record, said he was proud his daughter failed the assignment and just wished she’d done even worse on it.
[some gender-related bullshit removed.]
I’d be at the school having a giant argument with the teacher.
This is the most ridiculous assignment. I would be so confused by it because I definitely had Matchbox cars, LEGOs, AND Erector sets as a child.
Faith in humanity’s future: restored.

Who wants to take part in a little experiment for me?
I want to see how people measure up to the Kinsey scale, it’s a rating for sexuality.
