remember when the internet immortalized the picture of the couple kissing in the vancouver riots?

forget white people kissing in inappropriate places the only picture that belongs in the louvre is the picture of the man in the american flag shirt hurling a tear gas canister back while holding a chip bag in his other hand.

Anonymous: I'm going to college to become a police officer, and I'm in the program, but all these horrible stories make me rethink it. I wonder if I can still go into the force and at the same time be a good police officer. I never want to persecute someone because of their race, origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, etc. Is it still possible to be a good cop in the modern world?

shitrichcollegekidssay:

No, it’s not. Cops are shitty. You want to make a difference in the world? You want to make it safer? That’s awesome. There are plenty of ways to do that without being a cop.

I don’t care what anyone tells you, there is no such thing as a GOOD police officer. End of story.

I love this blog and am absolutely furious about the murder of Michael Brown and the police response, but this is not an okay post in my book.

Someone out there needs to help create law enforcement cultural change, and part of that is going to come from social-justice supporters on the inside.  Should this specific anon join police training?  I don’t know.  I don’t know them, and I’m not in the place to counsel people about careers.  But this isn’t a good response to their question. 

I used to want to be a doctor to change the medical doctor culture from the inside.  I ended up deciding not to go down that path.  But I still think that more GSM, female, low SE status, and POC doctors are needed to change that culture as well as more social awareness built into the curriculum (currently sensitivity training in med school is a joke).  I will be honest with fellow undergrads considering that path about the culture, but I don’t feel comfortable telling anyone not to go to med school. 

There are good people and awful people in every profession.  Unfortunately, there are a whole lot of terrible, terrible people in law enforcement, as well as a toxic work culture.  However, there are men and women out there working to help others, as well, and insulting them will not fix the problems of the environment they work in, nor bring awareness to this issue.  Please continue posting about the Ferguson, MO tragedy, and continue being skeptical of the institution of law enforcement—I will never tell you otherwise.  But posts like this are helping nobody.

I’m definitely going to talk to him about it later.  >< he’s got plenty to do, too, so hopefully he realizes that I need his support, not the petty arguments right now.

ugh.

so my boyfriend has been expecting a package of vegan hamburger patties from his mom that has been cooled with liquid nitrogen.  at the time I found out about this, I was all, “tell me when it comes so I can see it!!” because I’ve never seen dry ice before. 

well, it came today, and I planned on coming over, but got bogged down with pre-departure stuff for school (leaving Friday) and ended up texting him to take a video for me because I have to do stuff.  I figured it wouldn’t be a huge deal because we’ve been hanging out a lot lately and I’m seeing him later today anyway (part of the reason I want to get stuff done now—so I can still chill later). 

he actually got upset at me over this.  and I was like, “I’m sorry, I didn’t realize this was so important, but I’ve really got to send in research approval stuff for my thesis and do laundry and start packing so I can see you later today” and he’s all “WELL I THOUGHT YOU WERE COMING AND NOW YOU’RE NOT.” 

I hate this kind of thing.  We’ve been dating for 4 years.  I feel like little stuff like this should be okay by now.  And it’s not like he’d just let me leave after we opened the package.  He’d be all “but we only have a few days left, stay longer…” And I understand that, but at the same time, I do need to get ready for school again and I also need to do that. 

Idk.  I love him, but he’s been kind of getting on my nerves lately, and I think I need to chill out a bit, but he also needs to stop doing some of this stuff.
