Fear my feminist rage.

Intolerance in the 23rd century? Improbable! If man survives that long, he will have learned to take a delight in the essential differences between men and between cultures. He will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of life’s exciting variety, not something to fear. It’s a manifestation of the greatness that God, or whatever it is, gave us. This infinite variation and delight, this is part of the optimism we built into Star Trek.
Gene Roddenberry, in The Making of Star Trek (1968)

do you take comfort in this, the knowledgethat all dirt returns to dirt, that whenyou walk beneath the sky, it watches youa breeze stroking your hair like her handstroking your hair, and touching your collar,and your cheek—before she returns to the shadowswatching you grow?

there is a phrase
'mother earth'

as though the faint gray rain over a green bay
bore you;
as though the steepness of the hills
nursed you;
as though the marrow in your bones
is only soil.

do you take comfort in this, the knowledge
that all dirt returns to dirt, that when
you walk beneath the sky, it watches you
a breeze stroking your hair like her hand
stroking your hair, and touching your collar,
and your cheek—
before she returns to the shadows
watching you grow?

my absolute FAVORITE place to get gelato. this is peanut butter cup and dark chocolate noir sorbetto. check out www.gelatofiasco.com!

I love Gelato Fiasco! 
I went there on Monday and got Salted Caramel Gelato with Dark Chocolate Noir Sorbetto.  So good.
Everyone I love should move to Maine so they can eat this gelato with me.

james t kirk is an incredibly important fragile unexpected beautiful character who’s flawed and melodramatic and dorky and handsome and sexual and weird and HUMAN and cranky sometimes and deeply in love other times and a li’l chubby most of the time and he needs to be protected from everyone who thinks he’s a dumb hick who goes through women like tissues. protect james t kirk. this is the new prime directive

my students just delight me

an exchange today:

[male student talking about an adult female character]: “…and then this girl—”

[female student, interjecting]: “Girl?! Um, excuse me! She’s ‘woman’ to you, boy!”
