Kevin Hearts forced apology.

Its been a buzz lately about how in order to stay good with the academy and host future Oscars Kevin heart was forced to apologize for " anti gay" comments during one of his stand ups.



To be specific it was along the lines of, he didnt want his kid to be gay so he would tell him to stop doing certain things. I believe it was from his 1st theatrical stand up release.



Have to shake my head at this.



That segment in no way shape or form was directed to gay people as a whole. While many bad instances of fathers over disicplining or even murdering gay children have happened. This was a lighthearted joke segment about his own children and his wants for them. He often makes fun of his kids in various other ways which he also did. This was him being honest about straight men fears. There was no hate what so ever. He never said he wouldnt love him if he turned out gay or anything along those lines. It was more so a comical and easily real life scenarios of a father trying to guide his son to be straight in one of the most ineffective ways possiblx. Stop that! Thats gay! You have to be a special kind of soft for that to really bother you.

kids' mail subscriptions

The books on Little Feminist look really great, lots of books featuring actual people instead of anthropomorphic animals.



I remember having a Highlights magazine once or twice as a kid, but I don't remember being interested in it or a connection to books.

Themed gift exchange... uhh??


God, I feel like that theme is begging to lead to national stereotypes.


Oh boy, for sure. I'm expecting the exchange to be rather cringy.



ETA: Ultimately, I bought a premade gift basket. It has a couple varieties of pasta and sauces, a bottle of chianti, a wooden spoon, and the "basket" is a colander. I had planned to put together a basket of snacks but this one was just better all around.

Quiz: What kind of engineer should you be?

Engineering is one of the coolest jobs in the world, but there are so many disciplines it can be a little daunting to choose one for yourself! I wasn't happy with the existing quizzes, they were mostly way too direct (do you like bridges or wires? uh...) or way too career-spammy, and they were all way too serious. So with that in mind I took some personality traits and kinda did my best attempt at mapping them to engineering fields. It's not scientific or accurate because it really doesn't matter, engineers do so many things and move around so much there's no way to predict what path you'll end up on... so relax! This point of this test is to combine the fun of a personality quiz with the usefulness of a career test... hey look at that, fun AND useful? It's getting engineer-y already!

MMA Transgenders and feminism


There's nothing to be gained for a transgender woman competing in womens MMA. If they win, they become persona non grata because they beat up a woman with what the media will call "Man strength", if they lose, they get mocked for being beaten by a woman despite what the media will call, "Man strength".



They have to tread the finest of lines, of winning, but not too much, only by a slight margin. For every fight. Which in a fight, isn't possible to control that much. So screw it, transgender people shouldn't compete in MMA, it's a barbaric sport that should be banned anyway.

How important is school?

I think the most important factor in any school is how much the teachers care about the students. Another important element is safety and how interactions between students can substract from learning. Many parents go to jail for quite lengthy sentences for trying to send to their kids to a safe good school.



I would say its very important, because what you learn shapes and molds yours views that make you who you are.

Somewhat sad that this brother never recieved a real education. Torn between wether his environment made him like this (southern accent) or wether he was just weak and a lil slow. Sad but true.
