Portland friends who love cheap-almost-free live music! (That’s pretty much all of us, right?) 
One of my new housemates and his band, White Bear Polar Tundra, has an album release party Saturday, Sept 6th at 9 pm at the Alhambra Theater on Hawthorne. The $5 cover includes a copy of their album. It’s fun indie rock with really excellent rhythm.

CALLING ALL WOMEN:

black-american-queen:

I propose on August 26 we take to Twitter with the hashtag: #IWillNotSmile to raise awareness about the street harassment women face on a daily basis. Standing against men who are:

Demanding we act pretty for the male gaze.

Demanding we smile and submit to their…

It’s my moving day! And this is without the cookbooks included.

I think we should have more sexual education. Can you imagine if we didn’t have driver’s ed and people drove cars like they saw in the movies? Porn is adult entertainment, not education.

My students’ puppet show includes the following handmade sock puppets…

Nick the Penguin, a transgender animal who prefers the pronoun “they,” and is, according to his creator, “an incredibly wise penguin who can also fly.” Nothing-Head the Jellyfish, who has no gender and prefers the pronoun “it.” Arrogance and Innocence, the two heads of a double-headed hydra monster. Five and Twelve, the two-headed jellybean. An unnamed creature that is half leopard and half phoenix. And, of course, a kitten and a fairy.

Anti-rape programs like this one should be mandatory for every high school male

NPR News reports on a rape-prevention program that’s been in Iowa for 10 years. How can we spread this program, or something like it, nationwide? Older, popular high school boys (mostly athletes) are paired with freshman boys who look up to them, and mentor the younger boys in consent, and on how to stand up to peers who harass women and girls. You know, instead of shaming teenage girls and college-age women about their bodies and their sexuality.

huffingtonpost:

Studies show that women apologize more than men, often for perfectly reasonable acts like, you know, taking up space. 

So watch this Pantene commercial here to inspire you to stop saying sorry for no reason.
