    Fuck this.
    Fuck this post so much.

    Do not tell me
    you’re best friend
    would not sit in at your lunch table
    for three fucking days
    just staring blankly at your old seat
    wishing that you were there
    to fill the space with laughter.

    Do not tell me
    your younger brother
    would not break down
    in the middle of class
    because you guys started talking about
    your favorite type of subject
    in school.

    Do not tell me
    your mother
    would not stare into the mirror
    with trembling lips
    wishing she could be
    bringing you home from the hospital
    rather than having to escort you away
    in a casket to the nearest graveyard.

    Do not tell me
    your father
    would not begin working
    the night shifts
    to distract himself
    of the silence at home
    because you’re not up
    until the ungodly hours of the night
    talking to what’s-his/her-face
    on the phone
    because you guys are so in love.

    Do not tell me
    your boyfriend/girlfriend
    would not go into your room
    and put on the last hoodie you wore
    trying to desperately imprint
    your sent onto their skin
    so they never forget your smell.

    Do not tell me
    your friends
    would not stare blankly
    at the gymnasium wall
    after the principal has announced
    your death
    to the entire school
    making no sound
    trying to convince themselves
    this is just another one of
    your impractical jokes.

    Do NOT fucking TELL ME
    this bullshit line
    of how the stars would still appear
    the sun would still come out
    the earth would still rotate
    and the seasons will still change
    because without YOU
    you lil beautiful piece of human being
    none of these people will want
    ANY of that to happen.

    So yes.

    Fuck this.

    Fuck this post so much.

My 7 year old son was shot down by his 1st grade teacher

The american public education system in a nutshell tho

My third grade teacher actually had a conversation with my mom that I was reading to well and told her to stop having me read at home

My first grade teacher said that it was problematic that I was reading ahead of the rest of the kids in my grade and asked my parents to stop letting me read Harry Potter.
My fourth grade teacher thought it was wrong for my dad to be teaching me complex math because it fascinated me.
My elementary school music teacher hated the way my piano teacher taught me, and how I was more advanced than many of her students, and so told me, in front of my peers and my mother, that I was not good enough to participate in the state solo festival. She would not give me the form. We had to procure it from the district instead. She also hated how I excelled at reading and playing music for the recorder, and so she refused to give me my “belts” (colored beads to signify our level) and humiliated me in front of the class repeatedly.
My eighth grade algebra teacher used to fail me on take home tests because I didn’t solve problems exactly the way she showed us in class; I used methods that we had learned for other types of problems that also applied to these. She took points off my tests because I didn’t bring a calculator even though I got 100% without it, because I was able to do it by hand. I had to call my father, who is an engineer, down to the school to shout her down and give me back my A in the class.
My 10th grade Spanish teacher yelled at me in front of the class numerous times because she didn’t like the way I took notes; she thought that since I didn’t write every word off the slide, I wasn’t getting it all down. I had to explain to her that people who have taken advanced courses, like AP or IB classes, know that in a fast-paced learning environment you need to take quick shorthand notes that contain the necessary information rather than wasting time writing every word. She almost gave me detention.
My 11th grade English teacher gave me a poor mark on my first short essay because she believed that I was looking up unnecessarily complex words in a thesaurus to try and get better marks. The phrases in question: “laced with expletives” and “bombarded”. She wouldn’t hear any defense from me.
My 11th grade history teacher failed me on an essay about the 1950s because I misread the prompt. Except the prompt wasn’t words; it was a political cartoon. One of the figures was clearly president Eisenhower, but the other I couldn’t place. My teacher would not tell us who it was. I labelled him as the governor of Little Rock Arkansas during the integration period, and wrote an essay about that subject. My teacher said that no, it was Joseph McCarthy, and that there was a small picture of the man in our textbook and therefore I should have recognized him instantly. Half the class, apparently, did not.
The American school system is not here to educate us or to encourage us to learn; it’s here to keep us in line and silent. It’s here to keep us from deviating and being our own people and forming our own ideas. Don’t let it win.


The American education system is unbelievably horrendous. That’s why I’m grateful that I live in Washington where there are alternative education options like Running Start that get students out of the traditional school system and into college two years early.

    • women can take photos of themselves however the fuck they want, wearing as much or as less they want
    • taking nude photos of herself does not make a woman a slut
    • sharing nude photos of herself with someone else does not make a woman a slut
    • it is their choice with whom they choose to share…
