Story time

Today was the start of our criminology unit in sociology, which means a new professor. So far each professor has done a little game or something to help them remember our names.

This being criminology, my professor wanted us to pick a crime that we’ve committed and share it with the class. I was going to go with a boring speeding infraction or underage drinking until she said we couldn’t use those unless that was REALLY the only crime we had.

So quiet little 5 foot, 130 pound, glasses-wearing, lily-white me got to tell the class about the time I assaulted a guy that was 5’11 and 180 pounds. He started talking shit about me and got mad that I told him to shut up and swung at me. He was drunk and it landed on my shoulder, but I came back harder. Not only did I put him on the ground by tackling him head on, I ripped out his piercing that he had gotten a few weeks ago. It required stitches.

I wish that I had a camera to record the reactions of the other people in the class. NONE of them believed me at first. I don’t know why people assume that I’m innocent and that I’m prim and proper and boring. Yes I know I’m short, yes I usually dress conservatively and it’s boring, yes I’m white, and yes I’m smart. But that doesn’t make up the entirety of my identity.

I love that people here tell me I’m cute and adorable and sweet. I’d like to think that’s a part of who I am. I hope people see that. But I also hope they see there’s more to me than that.

Brilliant woman takes on the trolls by turning their hate into adorable crafts

Marie Brian, better known online as the Cotton Floozy, is fed up with the haters trying to rain on her craft parade. An advocate for LGBT rights and feminism, her crafts embody a liberal, and often subversive, viewpoint, making her a target for hateful criticism online.

Instead of engaging with these bellyachers, however, Brian decided to “adorable-ize” the hate by embroidering direct quotes from trolls that she and her feminist friends receive and posting them to Instagram.

More details about Disney’s Moana

Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed plans today for Moana, a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest. In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog, Aladdin).
In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.
“John and I have partnered on so many films—from The Little Mermaid to Aladdin to The Princess and the Frog,” said Clements. “Creating Moana is one of the great thrills of our career. It’s a big adventure set in this beautiful world of Oceania.”
“Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself,” Musker said. “She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.”
