Do you think college scholarships that only allow certain races to apply is racist? For example, one of the larger scholarships Bill Gates offers excludes caucasians from being eligible. I would be horribly offended if a scholarship committee just allowed caucasians to get it and not other races. With this in mind, why is okay to exclude another group of people? (Keep in mind, this scholarship has nothing to do with income, just merit and an essay.)

You dumb shithead, are you really so fucking stupid that you can’t see this kind of shit is just an attempt to help alleviate the systemic racism against everyone who isn’t white all through the education system? AND that white people have been in charge so long that they can just hide their scholarships in all kinds of other bullshit? You think Daughters of the American Revolution is some racially diverse fucking organization?

Why don’t you like Katy Perry?

This is why.

And in addition to this totally valid reason, I would like to also add that she reinforces negative gender stereotypes.

"You are so gay and you don’t even like boys" - so guys can’t like feminine things or be feminine in any way?

"You change your mind like a girl changes clothes"  - So once a day then? really…

"I kissed a girl and I liked it.  Hope my boyfriend don’t mind it" - your mileage may vary on this one but I always found this song offensive.  You see I kiss girls because I like them and not because I want to show off for my boyfriend.  It just felt like a song about a woman objectifying other women.

I’m sure others could find more examples.  I don’t listen to a lot of her music.

Basically Katy Perry is racist and sexist and exploits racist and gender stereotypes in an attempt to be ‘hip’.

SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT

So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time?  Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.

I will never not reblog this

…how do you…. how do you even… how do you get homework in “hours”?
Is it an US thing? Do the teachers there not tell kids “Do this equation, solve this problem and write this essay for next week”?

Yeah, this is an US thing.  Assignments often have an estimated average length of time it takes to complete them, either due to the number of questions that need to be answered or the amount of extra reading needed to come to the correct answers.  

But that makes no sense… does it? *headache* US education system just dives me headache.

Totally depends on where in the US you went to school too.  I went to a really crappy school and the “homework” they gave us could be completed during the class time if you actually focused and did it.  Even in advanced classes I never had that much homework.
