scottandhiskind: odinsblog: cat-hoarder: Great idea until you have 7th graders in Florida picking your president…. I’m not sure that the people that actually agree to this idea understand that kids would just vote how their parents would because no seventh grader has more than two brain cells. I was in seventh grade when the 2016 election happened, and holy fuck you do not want those kids picking your President, let alone having rights in general So then maybe, as was the point of this post, maybe the court system shouldn’t be executing 7th graders (most of whom are disproportionately black and brown people)? Because if you don’t think they’re mature enough to vote and pick a president, then I’m guessing that they aren’t mature enough to be tried as adults and then executed??? : Ramsin Canon @ramsincanon The voting age should be whatever age the youngest person tried as an adult in that state was 2/22/18, 1:04 AM scottandhiskind: odinsblog: cat-hoarder: Great idea until you have 7th graders in Florida picking your president….

itsbetterthananal: caramelitx: k but how fucked up us it for a prof to openly refer to a grad student TAing for her.. who seems to be a poc… as “the babysitter”……. Zitong was not our TA. her work and administration of this quiz was never referred to as babysitting outside of this email nor was she ever expected to actually “babysit” a bunch of 18-30yos while working on her PhD because guess what this email was a joke to make people chuckle and alleviate some stress as indicated by the fact that my professor was actually a young hispanic male referring to himself as mom and was originally giving the quiz himself but had an emergency the morning of, had to leave, everybody was stressed about what was going to happen and Zitong offered to help out last minute as an act of kindness. Being a TA was not her job, she was just one of his grad students (that class had no TA) so her being there to see the quiz go smoothly was more analagous to babysitting than a woman doing her job and being discredited and yall really love to make stretches without context : 2:22 PM View More Hi kiddies. As u know we have a quiz today. My grad student Zitong will administer it. Be nice to the babysitter. No horseplay. There are TV dinners in the freezer. See you on Tuesday Love, Mom itsbetterthananal: caramelitx: k but how fucked up us it for a prof to openly refer to a grad student TAing for her.. who seems to be a poc… as “the babysitter”…….
