Re: did you like physics?

Yes! I went the other way - I was taking Calculus and Differential Equations and took Physics to further my understanding of the problems we were discussing. Then I focused on my English degree and some of the content-specific knowledge has drifted away. I still want to understand how light and lase...

Re: Do you watch romantic comedies?

^ Same. I overheard and watched Pride and Prejudice and every film involving Julia Roberts, Richard Gere, Colin Firth, and other romantic comedy stars many a time. Tom Hanks, too. This also bled into romance, of course: my mom took me to see First Knight in the theater, a fact that gives me consider...

Re: Papa John

I went from eating Papa Johns a lot (growing up) to eating it very occasionally (grad school), to not eating it at all (surrounding John's responses to the Affordable Care Act and the NFL protests). I wasn't surprised at what happened because of what y'all (Skeezy and Neko) describe: the organizatio...

Re: housemates + newborn = ?

As someone with a two month old who has had to worry about temporary couchmates and people in downstairs apartments, I'll only emphasize how much space babies can take up. BabySonic has a room of stuff: a changing table, a rocker, a playmat, a place for the stroller, a crib, and other supplies. Baby...

Re: Compromise between Conservatives/TERFeminism and Transfeminism.

Is greater regulation of trans bodies a viable solution to gender policing? I don't think that's a great answer. If you require trans women to prove they're women, then you're perpetuating an expectation that trans women are not automatically women. If what allows them to be women in a specific spac...

Re: What's your favorite family holiday tradition?

I profoundly miss lighting off fireworks on the Fourth of July. We did that every year growing up and every year I've been able to visit. If I wasn't continuously lighting off bottle rockets, roman candles, and other armaments from 6 PM to when we ran out, it wasn't the Fourth. However, for the past...

Re: How much space do you need to store clothes?

Half a closet and some drawers. I need to get some new pants and shirts and throw some older ones out. Even after my last closet purge, I have a few items of clothing from high school that are of their decade and don't fit my personal style anymore. Side note: I wish I could make zippable short/pant...

Re: what's the last movie you saw?

I saw The Disaster Artist . It's the story of the bad film The Disaster Room. For the most part I found it cringeworthy; James Franco's portrayal of the mysterious Tommy Wiseau and Dave Franco's naivety as Greg Sestero were fascinating for the first twenty minutes. After that, the rest of the film w...

Re: What is male privilege?

Bluntly, I don't think there are two kinds of privilege to be compared. I think there is male privilege, which pervades society, and then most of what is called "female privilege" is a consolation prize for having less power, one that men are taught to give and women are taught to expect.
