tragic love story idea: in a world where we have just engineered the technology to create a robot capable of feelings, a robot with feelings falls for another older-model robot that’s incapable of love
EVERYONE PLEASE. PAY ATTENTION. Especially if you’re Asian.
On January 30th, 2014, California Senate just passed SCA-5, a legislation that would repeal portions of California Proposition 209.
In condensed words, this bill allows schools to DISCRIMINATE…
OK, this is important, but I think this is being misinterpreted. This bill is supposed to be a Affirmative Action bill!
UC and State colleges in California were not subject to anything like Affirmative Action, and are overwhelmingly white and Asian American. They have very few African American or Latino American students, and this bill is to make sure that schools accept more POC, specifically POC that are being underrepresented in their college.
So this bill does not help Asian Americans, (it would treat them similar to white students, being already well represented at UC/State schools), but it DOES help more underrepresented POC students. (I can’t find good source that say it would restrict Asian Americans to 13%, or at all. These websites are quoting each other from unreliable sources).
(I would really recommend looking it up on multiple websites, with sources that are completely unbiased. Many of the people upset about this bill are racist white people who are anti-affirmative action).
The lesbian population is so small and tight knit that it’s almost impossible to be anonymous.
I’ve only dated 2 girls in Portland, but recently met a queer girl I’d never seen before, on a totally different side of town. I told her my first name and she was like “Oh, did you use to date Rachel *******?” AND SHE WAS RIGHT
It’s kinda amazing/stressful how if you do anything with a lesbian it seems like every other queer woman in the city will know about it by morning.
it’s so bizarre seeing 13 and 14 year olds on here typing and acting like everyone else on tumblr because i think back to when i was 13 and on deviantart and i wonder “where’s your weeaboo phase. no you can’t just skip it where is it”
