cuatroquesos replied to your post: We shouldn’t over-emphasize the subjective. Different people experience prejudice in different ways. So if you’re trying to make policy, data is often more reliable than first hand experience. A meta-analysis of data from all kinds of social sciences, taking into account the experiences of many people, would often yield far more reliable conclusions than the anecdotal evidence of one person. An opinion based on ur specific experience is often less valuable than statistical analysis of broad data
Why are you so intelligent?
My mom was an english teacher who became a stage manager and my dad was a police officer who became a marketing guy. It was kind of bound to happen.
You should play the sims.
I feel like I’ve done everything there is to do on the Sims, and it gets to a point where I’m having them set off fireworks in their house just because they’ve stopped being interesting.
I decided to post them now, figuring I could always reblog them tomorrow:
Basically, back in February, Sydney was in Philadelphia for a debate thing or whatever, and since I live in Philadelphia, we decided to go on an adventure. This ended up happening at a bookstore. To my credit, her friends were wrong about me and I am not a murderer.
First up, Sydney and I found a book containing a poem about Joan’s favorite dinosaur. The bookstore employee was less than helpful in our attempts to find such a book.
Next up, I’ve found a book about Justin Bieber which was, for some reason, on the “American History” shelf.
Sydney is incredibly distraught by some news.
We also found a shelf of books about Barack Obama, including one with a less-than accurate portrait of him on the cover:
While I brushed up on my Obama in my tiny chair, Sydney learned a new skill in hers:
Additionally, Sydney scolded racism and celebrated Black History Month with great enthusiasm:
And also showed her love for Superheroes using only stuff from my bag:
And finally, a tribute to the Hunger Games fandom through which we met: high-fiving with the books.
Fun fact: We had to ask a random person to take this picture. They were incredibly confused.
