Almost every time I speak to teenagers, particularly young female students who want to talk to me about feminism, I find myself staggered by how much they have read, how creatively they think and how curiously bullshit-resistant they are. Because of the subjects I write about, I am often contacted by young people and I see it as a part of my job to reply to all of them - and doing so has confirmed a suspicions I’ve had for some time. I think that the generation about to hit adulthood is going to be rather brilliant.
Young people getting older is not, in itself, a fascinating new cultural trend. Nonetheless the encroaching adulthood and the people who grew up in a world where expanding technological access collided with the collapse of the neoliberal economic consensus is worth paying attention to. Because these kids are smart, cynical and resilient, and I don’t mind saying that they scare me a little.

Germany’s highest court has ruled against giving same-sex couples in civil partnerships the right to adopt children.
what was that germany with your gay olympic outfits what
that awkward moment when
actually the article (as well as the headline — did it get edited?) says the court refused to rule on the matter on procedural grounds
still not good, but probably not as bad as ruling against it
so this past fall my parents gave me this ginormous 5lb. thing of honey that they weren’t using and now i put it in every possible dish & am convinced it is a god among condiments
on french toast instead of maple syrup
with mashed frozen bananas, peanut butter, & cinnamon for lactose-free ice cream
on roasted carrots with olive oil, salt & pepper
with cinnamon on microwave-baked apple slices to go with oatmeal or in yogurt-granola parfaits (or all by themselves)
…i dip slices of toast in it
…and of course, put it in black tea
i guess what i’m getting at here is if you have any other vegetarian honey recipes that don’t require a lot of ingredients pls let me know because I HAVE SO MUCH HONEY
the number of people I know who are around my age and either pregnant or already have kids is starting to reach critical mass and it’s freaking me out
idk why but IT IS
Neither Courage Wolf nor Calming Manatee were doing much to help my anxiety, but I knew they were both on to something.
So, I created Calmage Wolfatee.
when small business owners who act the victim and fight and kick and scream for their right to refuse to serve certain customers get really upset and act the victim when people then decide not to patronize their business in protest
do you want people’s money regardless of how your values might conflict
or don’t you
James was a tall, thin man with untidy black hair that stuck up at the back. During his Hogwarts years, he had an indefinable air of having been well cared for and even adored. As late as his fifth year, he started wearing glasses, although in his first year he had not.
While at Hogwarts, James became the very best of friends with Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew, and the group called themselves “the Marauders”. The four friends enjoyed untold popularity while at school, and particularly liked playing pranks together.
Though more mischievous than diligent, James was a very clever student. At some point, he became Chaser for his house’s Quidditch team, and he was entirely aware of his talent. He was something of an obnoxious youth for the majority of his time at school; he liked to show off and was exceptionally self-confident. He habitually ruffled his hair to make it even untidier, to look as though he’d just got off his broomstick, according to Lily Evans.
By his seventh year, James had lost the less savoury aspects of his personality, and was even appointed Head Boy, despite the fact that he had not been a prefect.
