I am pretty cool, I guess.
I like waffles.
zEric: I hate labels. All they do is make you believe/assume things about people without getting to know them.
Me: Yeah, tell me about it. I'm Bi, Poly and Pagan...First impression: what does that make me?
zEric: A Whore.
Me: Exactly, and I have had 3 sexual partners in the past 7.5 years. That is hardly "Whore-like". You; a Single, Heterosexual, Monogamous man who dates women to find a serious partner (NOT casually)...how many people have you slept with in that time?
zEric: ....*counts*.....Uh, I don't want to play this game...
Me: Exactly. We both are FAR from the definition of "Whore" but your numbers while actively trying to find a serious emotional and physical relationship, and my labels would lead others to believe that we were anything but long term relationship minded people.
As many as 15 percent of freshmen at America’s top schools are white students who failed to meet their university’s minimum standards for admission, according to Peter Schmidt, deputy editor of the Chronicle of Higher Education. These kids are “people with a long-standing relationship with the university,” or in other words, the children of faculty, wealthy alumni and politicians.
According to Schmidt, these unqualified but privileged kids are nearly twice as common on top campuses as Black and Latino students who had benefited from affirmative action.”
This is EXTREMELY blatant on college campuses. The fact that these things need to be clarified is sad.
Legacy is the real affirmative action…and yet we don’t see certain types of entitled people suing to dismantle that.
whenever i’m sad i like to imagine what possible crime Steve Irwin’s ancestor committed to warrant him being sent to Australia like some Victorian gentleman escorting a lady to the zoo past the crocodile enclosure and going “do you see that great wyrm sunning itself there? quite a striking creature, is it not? I do believe I shall engage it in fisticuffs.”
