Drisana, 18, student, feminist.
I'm a student focusing mainly on the physical sciences, but I also like calc, history and literature, and I blog a lot about political and social issues. I can appreciate art and music from a distance, though I'm not the best at creating them. I never take myself seriously (so you probably shouldn't, either). This is just a repository of the thoughts that float through my head on a daily basis; feel free to ask me anything if you want to know! (:
nice to know that the physics staff is just as welcoming of self-deprecation as its students!
Sorry to break typical submission form but I thought that this was too good to pass up. Harvard’s presidents literally profited from the slave trade well after slavery had ended in the north.
honestly wasn’t expecting that post to be repesctful
ok no. First off referring to someone as fatty is in no way respectful. and maybe she isn’t running to lose weight. I am a fat women who works out. You wanna know why? Not to lose weight, but because I fucking like it. I like working out and improving myself and getting the endorphin rush. So no.
jesus christ how are people this fucking clueless about how rude and condescending they come off
#ITooAmHarvard is a project by Black students at Harvard to speak out about the racism that they experience in their daily lives as students. It will also be a play.
Pretty heartbreaking. These beautiful and bright students deserve so much better. Above I included some of the photographs (there’s many more) of Black women who are students there because I think it’s important to point out how racism is not only impacting Whites’ perception of their intelligence but also how White people approach their appearance as well, in gender-specific ways. This is heartbreaking to me albeit not surprising. The myth that working hard = happy payoff is a fairy tale. Racism is ubiquitous.
I really wish them the best with their education and the ability to navigate these microaggressions and overt acts of racism. This stuff increases stereotype threat and impacts mental health and health which impacts performance. I want the best for them. Much love. ❤
