I’ve written about this before, and it comes down to one line: Confusion is the sweat of learning. If a student doesn’t get confused at some point in a class then either the student already knew the material in class, or the student didn’t learn anything in class. It’s just like going to a gym to work out. If you didn’t sweat and you didn’t get sore afterwards, you probably didn’t do anything.
Two Common Misconceptions About Learning | WIRED (via teachnologies)
You don’t owe people the person you used to be. You don’t have to talk to people who are speaking to the old you. If they want to drag old you out, and you’ve already left that person behind, they don’t get to talk to you. When you’ve gone from weakness to strength, you don’t owe a show of your former self to someone who just can’t wrap their head around your change.

Tumblr, we need you! A rogue Arizona State representative, John Kavanagh, wants to pass a bill that would thow trans people in jail for using public restrooms. Anyone could be asked for I.D. to “prove” their gender, and if there’s a discrepancy they could face a fine or jailtime.

When asked why the bill targeted trans people, Kavanagh explained that it’s because he thinks “they’re weird.” Outrageous.

We can stop this bill by taking action at www.allout.org/arizona and spreading the word far and wide. Will you help?

Website says as of June 6 the bill is dead in all its forms.

Thank goodness it’s dead. Long may it stay that way.

How the Logic of "Friendzoning" Would Work If Applied in Other Instances:

  • *Man walks into a store and finds employee*

  • Man:

    Alright, I've had enough. Why haven't you guys hired me?!

  • Employee:

    Uh...well sir, when did you put in your application?

  • Man:

    I never filled out an application.

  • Employee:

    Well sir, we can't consider you for employment if you've never filled out an application.

  • Man:

    No, that's bullshit, because I've been coming here for years now, and every single time I tell you all how much I love this store and how much I appreciate your customer service, unlike some of your other customers might I add!

  • Employee:

    Well, but that doesn't-

  • Man:

    AND I even told you that I didn't have a job!

  • Employee:

    But sir, that doesn't indicate to us that you would like a job at our store. And again, if you've never filled out an application, we can't consider you. Besides, we're not hiring.

  • Man:

    OH! Not hiring, HA! What a laugh. I see your store go through seasonal workers all the time. They come and go like nothing, but you won't consider me as a part-time employee even though I KNOW you've been looking for workers to fill positions? That's insane!

  • Employee:

    Sir, we've been looking to hire a few people for management positions. Do you have any management experience?

  • Man:

    Well no, but what does that matter?

  • Employee:

    ...Well sir, that's what we're looking for. You won't be suitable for the position without management experience.

  • Man:

    Oh that's such a load of crap. You know, you'll be waiting around a long time for a manager if you don't lower your standards a little. Who cares if someone knows how to manage a store? I LOVE this store and I'm willing to work here, that's all that should matter to you.

  • Employee:

    That...doesn't make any sense.

  • Man:

    NO! I'm done. This is over. From now on, no more Mr. Nice Guy.

  • Employee:

  • Man:

  • Employee:

  • Man:

    Fuck you, slut.
