So excited to leave for my second year tomorrow
All ya AP teachers tell you that getting college credit is ba but all it’s doing for me is making sure I pay upper level tuition sooner
Girl: Come over
Me: Im an AP student, and I take many AP classes
Girl: My parents arent home
Me: AP stands for advanced placement. These are college level courses that you can take in high school. Typically they are more demanding than regular classes and thus you are often given a higher workload. However, the benefits are far reaching. Consider taking some AP courses during high school for a chance to earn college credit
Amazingly, not The Onion:
“[W]e now have young men telling Bloomberg News that they basically view their female peers as rape bombs just waiting to explode and ruin their lives.”
I REPEAT: THIS IS NOT THE ONION
I wish I could say I can’t believe men would say such dumb shit.
Literally, go fuck yourselves. Bye.
I mean actually reading the article yeah it’s super fucked up that there’s a quote in there basically saying “I can’t rape people because I might actually get in trouble for it!! That fucking sucks!!” But like…..that’s also a good thing? I mean yeah we’re seeing backlash now but I am so so excited that it is increasingly becoming the social norm to punish rapists and knowing that having sex with a drunk person is NOT consensual sex.
This article wouldn’t have been written if things weren’t in the process of changing.
I don’t need any more convincing that we live in a rape culture, like lmao obviously. But articles like this do convince me that things are changing, which I’m honestly happy to read.
Kind of like when a little kid gets angry about being put in timeout, but in reality will appreciate it a couple years/decades down the road when he’s not a total shithead.
We’re still in our little kid phase of battling this shit.
The Bloomberg piece is crazy fucked though, maybe that’s why it doesn’t seem to exist anymore?

Hey everyone! Betsey Stevenson here from President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers. In honor of Women’s Equality Day, I’ll be taking over I Love Charts to tell the story of the progress we’ve made in closing the earnings gap between women and men, and the challenges women still face in the workforce.
Betsey says it better than we can. Have a look at the results.
Also, hey, Happy Women’s Equality Day, Tumblr.
