Finally the sun! 🐶🏄 Mitzi & @petesqrd (at St Kilda West Dog Beach)
On being asked if she is a feminist (in light of stars such as Shailene Woodley, Lady Gaga, and Kelly Clarkson rejecting the label): “I don’t think they really understood what feminism is. It’s a right. Feminism, to me, is standing up for everything that someone else has already done for you. My mom has overcome so much in her life. She makes me want to stand up for myself. Stand up to the studio heads who try to tell me that I can’t have blonde hair; they want brown hair. Or I need bigger boobs, or I need to work out. Or I’m too skinny, so, like, ‘Eat a cheeseburger.’ I stand up for myself every day of my life. I grew up in a family of four boys. I’m, like, a born feminist. I’ve been a feminist since I was four years old.” - Chloe Grace Moretz

Mitzi got to go to the office today!!!
We took the baby gates down about a week ago… often Mitzi (greyhound) will come to my door and look in to see us, but won’t actually enter the room. I think she’ll discover the cat food in there sooner or later though and then she won’t be able to help herself… but for now she is well behaved. Recent cat dog interaction has been good as well - Mitzi has been about a metre from Rosie and couldn’t care less. No alert ears or any intent to chase. Rosie hisses at Mitzi and is becoming much more brave, I think she actually stalked the dog the other day. I resent having the cat a little, I guess I’m just sad that I don’t get to have Mitzi in my room anymore… but hopefully they’ll soon discover that they are meant to be bffs and start cuddling AND THEN THEY CAN BOTH SLEEP IN MY ROOM CUDDLED UP CAN YOU IMAGINE!

I’m at the car dealership, waiting for my service recall to be completed, and this statement caught the attention of every woman in the room. Unsurprisingly, they all nodded in assent while the few men in the room looked uncomfortable.
The point is valid: even if access to STEM and other male dominated fields is made available, we need to do something about the culture in the field. Access to a pipeline full of acid, while it is still access, serves to maintain inequality.
so my sister works in STEM & if you talked to her for like 5 minutes she can tell you how true this is. it’s fucking poisonous
& the further you move up that pipeline the more toxic it becomes
