I went to a vineyard yesterday
And indeed the worst of my faults was a certain impatient gaiety of disposition, such as has made the happiness of many, but such as I found it hard to reconcile with my imperious desire to carry my head high, and wear a more than commonly grave countenance before the public.

my hair is ascending to become an energy being without me but look what a good selfie this is
After reading about gender-bias and conversation dominance in the classroom, I asked for a peer to observe a physics class I was teaching and keep track of the discussion time I was giving to various students along with their race and gender. In this exercise, I knew I was being observed and I was trying to be extra careful to equally represent all students―but I STILL gave a disproportionate amount of discussion time to the white male students in my classroom (controlling for the overall distribution of genders and races in the class). I was shocked. It felt like I was giving a disproportionate amount of time to my white female and non-white students.
Even when I was explicitly trying, I still failed to have the discussion participants fairly represent the population of the students in my classroom.
This is a well-studied phenomena and it’s called listener bias. We are socialized to think women talk more than they actually do. Listener bias results in most people thinking that women are ‘hogging the floor’ even when men are dominating. — Stop interrupting me: gender, conversation dominance and listener bias, from Women In Astronomy (via femscinerd)

my gender presentation preferences are to look boyish naked and then to wear the kind of clothes my next level girlbuds wear, but then sometimes I think “what would I look like with an angular bob” but I’d have to straighten it to make it look right and I’m opposed to straightening hair on a lot of levels and honestly the only reason I even am considering that idea at all is because I have a wig in that style so why wouldn’t I just wear the wig
I wonder what would happen if I asked for a pixie cut, like would they give me a pixie cut or would they try to adapt it because I’m a “boy” and like how do you adapt a subversively un-traditionally-feminine femme haircut to make it unsubversively masculine
I just realized these sideburns lower my selfie confidence so they’ve gotta go bye sideburns, relatedly: getting a haircut today unless it brings my discretionary spending for this month over 100 in which case lol waiting till October for THAT
Yonce all on his mouth like liquor
