We are also one of three nations without paid maternity leave, and the only developed (“first world”) country without maternity leave.

We are the only Western country without universal healthcare.

It costs more to have a child in the US than in any other country.

In many countries you don’t have to pay for college, and if students do pay, it’s nowhere near the amounts that the US students pay.

I could continue, but I think I’ve made my point.

My gender expression is varied enough day to day that sometimes I feel like it would be easier if the decision was just taken out of my hands.

If you think you can grasp me, think again
my story flows in more than one direction
a delta springing from the riverbed
with its five fingers spread.

Adrienne Rich, “Delta” (via hush-syrup)

Depression presents itself as a realism regarding the rottenness of the world in general and the rottenness of your life in particular. But the realism is merely a mask for depression’s actual essence, which is an overwhelming estrangement from humanity. The more persuaded you are of your unique access to the rottenness, the more afraid you become of engaging with the world; and the less you engage with the world, the more perfidiously happy-faced the rest of humanity seems for continuing to engage with it.

Jonathan Franzen

Storytelling is a political act. It’s making sense of the world and ourselves, and like every other kind of sense-making, it’s as political as it is personal and vice-versa. There is no distinction to be made between the political and the personal. Writing of any kind is political. It’s claimsmaking regarding reality and how to interpret it. Because whenever we’re faced with these things, we’re faced with fundamental truths regarding how creation makes and unmakes the world, regarding whose voices are amplified and whose are lost, between who gets to speak and who is literally silenced.

At last, hope for ALS patients? →

U of T researchers have found a missing link that helps to explain how ALS, one of the world’s most feared diseases, paralyses and ultimately kills its victims. The breakthrough is helping them trace a path to a treatment or even a cure.

I HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS EXPLAINED BETTER THANK YOU SQUIDWARD

Whatever you now find weird, ugly, uncomfortable and nasty about a new medium will surely become its signature. CD distortion, the jitteriness of digital video, the crap sound of 8-bit - all of these will be cherished and emulated as soon as they can be avoided. It’s the sound of failure: so much modern art is the sound of things going out of control, of a medium pushing to its limits and breaking apart. The distorted guitar sound is the sound of something too loud for the medium supposed to carry it. The blues singer with the cracked voice is the sound of an emotional cry too powerful for the throat that releases it. The excitement of grainy film, of bleached-out black and white, is the excitement of witnessing events too momentous for the medium assigned to record them.
