a window to my thoughts

couple-a-hundred-of-em:

As a college student, currently really hungry with nothing to eat, I understand how hard it can be to get food. Sometimes you really just don’t have the money to eat and when you do, you waste it all on fast food instead of stocking up on cheap things because you’re so tired of Ramen Noodes and canned food you could barf. So, I’ve composed a list of recipes and resources that will fit a college kid’s budget and appetite. Don’t go hungry! <3

Yes, I was infatuated with you; I am still. No one has ever heightened such a keen capacity of physical sensation in me. I cut you out because I couldn’t stand being a passing fancy. Before I give my body, I must give my thoughts, my mind, my dreams. And you weren’t having any of those.

— Sylvia Plath, The Journals of Sylvia Plath (via seabois)


Last month, I wrote an op ed at CNN about sexual assaults on college campuses. I was threatened with rape as a result. Last summer, I had the temerity to point out that yes, Andy Murray was indeed the first Brit to win Wimbledon in 77 years unless you think women are people, and count the several British women who had won single’s trophies on those hallowed courts in the intervening years. For that, I had several teenage British boys tweet diagrams at me titled “how to disable a woman.” They felt perfectly comfortable threatening me in public, in full view of their school administrators, the police, and, in theory, everyone else in the internet-using world. Last year, I pointed out that a sign encouraging people to consume fewer calories because “summer’s coming” was shaming fat people, and requested that the sign be taken down. For that, I was called a fat, ugly, unrapeable cunt, amongst many, many other things. These are just the three incidents that come most easily to mind, but really, it’s only a taste, just a sample of the abuse and intimidation that have become normal for me in the five years I’ve been doing this work.

College Board line of reasoning

  • College Board:Pay for this test we made to measure your aptitude for college
  • College Board:Oh, you want to do well on said test? Pay for materials put out by us to do it
  • College Board:Pay us to send your test results to colleges. We won't even use paper; it's electronic
  • College Board:Pay us to take a test that certifies mastery of college level material. Take college level classes to get into college basically. But pay us
  • College Board:Pay us to send a lengthy, confusing financial aid application to colleges even if you don't get in. Pay us more if your parents are divorced
  • College Board:Pay us
  • College Board:We're a non profit organization
