Having lived half a century you would think one would have adjusted to it by now, but for some ridiculous reason I am forever bothered by the change to or from Daylight Savings Time. I know, it’s only an hour one way or the other and always falls conveniently on a Sunday when most people have nothing to do. But it still discombobulates me for a few days after it’s happened. I’ll look at the clock and some strident voice inside says, “It’s THAT late?” or “I have a whole hour to kill before I go? I thought it was time.” The sky is too bright for that time of evening, or too dark for that time of morning. Small annoyances, like having no hat when it starts to rain, no milk for the coffee, the car alarm out on the street that doesn’t stop screaming even after minutes, the extra hour or the lost hour that you thought belonged to you but doesn’t.

Kitestring Notifies Your Emergency Contacts If You Go Dark Melanie Pinola
If you’re going on a solo trip or even for a walk alone at night, it’s a good idea to let a loved one know you’re safe (or possibly not). Kitestring is a simple webapp that checks up on you and sends a text message to your emergency contacts if you don’t respond by a designated time.
Enter your ETA and Kitestring will send you a text message to reply to. You can extend your check in time via SMS or check in early. If you don’t respond to Kitestring’s text message, your emergency contact(s) will get your customizable alert message.
The free and open source site offers peace of mind, especially for those adventurous types and their families and friends. Instead of having to check up on each other just to say “I made it safe,” Kitestring does the checking up for you.
(via Kitestring Notifies Your Emergency Contacts If You Go Dark)

Think about the first name you were ever called,
and then think how long it took until
you got called a pussy
or a slut,
or a bitch,
or a whore,
all of which are words that fall too close to ‘girl.’

Think about the first time you got called a ‘girl’
and they said it with a sneer.
Like it was a bad thing.

For a boy, it is the lowest degradation to get called a girl.
For a girl, it is the lowest degradation to get called a girl.

Remember, black widow spiders and female praying mantises eat their partners after intercourse.
Remember, it’s the lionesses who hunt.
They come back with bloody muzzles, dragging bloated carcasses as the alpha lion strides around with his mane puffing out.
Remember, it’s only the female mosquitoes who drink blood.
We’re the ones who do the necessary work, dirty our hands,
fuck or fight or both.
We’re often the smaller sex, which makes us a harder target
as we slink close and sink our teeth in.

Remember: we’re deadly.

You should be proud to be called a girl.

When people say don’t be racist, they don’t just mean ‘don’t join the kkk’ they mean listen to people of colour when they explain how race operates, unlearn the harmful, racist things that society takes for granted and just don’t let yourself be ignorant.

It’s not just about saying you’re not racist, you have to actually not be racist
