When people say ‘This is my baby,’ they don’t always mean a baby. Sometimes they mean a dog.

cammmeron asked: Do you belive boys are even worth pursuing in high school? I know it's not exactly fair to generalize, but from what I've observed at my school, a good number of teen boys are close minded and foolish. Your opinion?

arabellesicardi:

teen boys are the scum of the earth. fuck them for practice if you’d like, use them for their lunch money and make them buy you nice things, and don’t listen to them at all. actually men until the age of maybe 28 (being generous here) are all fucking scum who don’t have their shit together and i’m usually embarrassed to be in the same room as them. 

This makes me so sad because I teach teenage boys and for the most part, they’re actually sweet and adorable and eager to please. In my personal opinion, all the douchey stuff they do is learned behaviour from TV or their dickhead fathers who grew up in the 70s and think it’s still socially acceptable to refer to women as ‘birds’.

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover
