I can’t wait until our generation becomes teachers that actually know how to make a video full screen and get the god damn cursor out of the way

"Well, we all like to be paid more and that’s great, but the reality is that women have a different lifestyle. They have kids. They have to take them to get dentist appointments, doctors appointments, all those kinds of things. And they’re more interested in flexibility in a job than pay."

U.S. Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land (R-MI)

Republican women think institutional pay reduction for women is deserved and justified using their “because that’s the way it is” political tenacity. 

The “barefoot and pregnant” stereotype is very alive in the GOP. Yet another example of Republicans using their outdated 1950s narratives to suppress and discriminate women.

Why not stand up for your gender and demand pay equity?

Tried fighting singlestick tonight with the heavy fighters. The guy I fought hit hard but was used to fighting with a shield and didn’t have much in the way of tight control. Turns out I can throw some nasty sabre cuts from moulinets that he had a hard time dealing with, especially a vertical rising cut that popped him under the chin and rattled him a bit. Only problem was I was wearing a steel helmet and chainmail hauberk while trying to use the kind of mobility I have when doing rapier… with another 30 plus pounds on me. Left me shaky by the time I finished. Was interesting to try something different though. 

Addendum: Said heavy fighter, and several of the heavies I know generally have a pretty low opinion about rapier fighters. The first time I rung his bell with a solid thrust to the grill, the peanut gallery became very quiet…

I keep thinking oh man, I’m so immature. How am I allowed to be an adult.

Then I spend time with teenagers.

And it’s like, wow, okay, yeah. I am an adult. I am so adult. Look at me adulting all over the place.
