#CommonCore This is how the Government gets the unemployment rate.

<snip illustration of the fallacy of the argument from personal incredulity>

What. The. Fuck. Is. This. Shit.

what “progressive” education in america is turning into.

THE FUCK’S THIS SHIT

what the hell is that supposed to even mean? I had to read over the explanation twice, and I’m taking algebra 2. 

"by totally ignoring the problem and pulling numbers out yo ass, that’s how"

This is like freakin’ countdown

For fuck’s sake. “Make ten” is a skill students are taught. Common Core actually does a much better job of teaching numeracy and number manipulation than the stupid fucking algorithms and touch dot bullshit we were taught to get the right answer without actually understanding how numbers work. You don’t understand it because you WEREN’T TAUGHT HOW TO USE IT. But I bet you’re the shit at borrowing, even though it’s a totally stupid way to subtract that makes mistakes more common because you’re just doing steps instead of having a goddamn clue what’s going on. Everyone needs to calm their shit about Common Core unless you’ve been trained in how to teach it and then been taught those methods. Just because we were all instructed in a shitty way that we eventually figured out doesn’t mean there isn’t a better way. Common Core has its problems, sure, but THIS ISN’T ONE OF THEM.

The funny thing is that these are the same people who whine about the government brainwashing us all to think the same way. This shit is actually some outside the box thinking that makes sense when you think about it, but here they are, whining about how the government is teaching kids to think outside the box. We had the same issue when I was in elementary and they were teaching “mew math”. Oh nos! Look out! They’re teaching the value of ten! Infiltration of the metric system!

What’s really kinda mind-blowing are the responses from Algebra and Calculus ‘authorities’ who are failing to grasp that the above is fundamentally algebraic [which means generations for whom algebraic processes become more likely intuitively accurate, having been instilled at younger ages], and that it’s doing so by fucking literally ‘solving for X’—
Not all ur base ten are belong to U.S. education, I guess.  generalbriefing:

FUCK YOU HRC

FUCK YOU FOR PUBLISHING THAT CROSSDRESSING IS THE SAME AS BEING TRANSGENDER

FUCK YOU FOR SAYING THAT BEING A TRANS MAN IS THE SAME AS A WOMAN DRESSING AS A MAN

WOMEN CAN DRESS AS MASCULINE AS THEY WANT AND STILL BE WOMEN

TRANS MEN ARE NOT WOMEN WHO ARE CROSSDRESSING

SAYING THAT IS TRANSPHOBIC AS FUCK

FUCK YOU HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN

oh, jesus. fuck HRC.

ARE WE JUST GOING TO FUCKING IGNORE THE FACT THAT THERE IS NOT A SINGLE FUCKING MENTION OF THE EXISTENCE OF TRANS WOMEN?!

Fuck this bullshit.

[x] Defective induction needs its own HRC pamphlet— 

No mention in the pics above, you mean? Cuz a definition for MTF comes right after the one for ‘GLBT or LGBT’ which comes right after the one for ‘gender variant’ and on the same page, while thruout the pamphlet [which is addressed to the second-person ‘you’] pictures are included of individuals expressing as male or female —

The definition of transgender the HRC provides in this -introductory- pamphlet for coming out [who will quite possibly do so where support is scarce and sentiment against], is: "Transgender — An umbrella term describing a broad range of people who experience and/or express their gender differently from what most people expect. It includes people who describe themselves as transsexual, cross-dressers or otherwise gender nonconforming" and while it might be too inclusive for the hardliners [phobia thru dysphoria, right?], it’s not meaninglessly inclusive: Including cross-dressing within the purview of gender non-conforming while addressing the issues of coming out as such in a pamphlet to be used worldwide, means that the material relevant to a transgender individual may likely be as relevant to a cross-dressing individual [who otherwise suffers without mention [especially when expressing for the former often means the latter is taken up, and so is not an issue singular to cross-dressers]] and addressed without being overly redundant with the production of another pamphlet.

If you’re mad at her, you don’t understand it.  White people are trying to remove themselves from all people of color.  Let me show you why this is true.  You’ve heard of Asian-americans or African Americans or Mexican Americans.  But how about a European American?  Have you ever heard someone say they’re Canadian American? or European American? Probably not.  White people can just call themselves American, even if their ancestry has not been in America for long.  If your great-grandparents moved because of the potato famine, you don’t call yourselves Irish American, you have lived your entire life in the United States, you call yourself an American.  But now, take someone whose ancestry is linked to some of the first slaves in the colonies, and they still call themselves African-American.  Doesn’t matter if they’ve never stepped foot on the continent and share no cultural link, other than pigment, with any society in Africa, they still have to identify with African.  

What’s most infuriating is that even people who are the ultimate Americans: Native Americans.  They were in the Americas while ass backwards Europe was accusing (and burning) women of being witches.  THEY, of all people, shouldn’t have to specify their identity as an American, but NO they have to be labeled with something else.  

Raven Symone is an absolute star.  She has my total respect for standing up like this, and I hope her so much happiness with her girlfriend.  I wish she was still on television, she taught me so much , even if it was all from a disney show

THANK YOU!!!^^^ idk why this was so difficult to understand, she explained herself well, but yes!!!!!^^^

since tumblr thought it necessary to recommend your blog and bring this overwhelmingly basic post back onto my dash, let me direct you to this blog post, where you may learn to get your head out of your ass

thisisnotlatinx you should know better than to indulge this apologism to racial colorblindness. [especially if youre not black.. just take a stadium of seats] the fuck? and her half-assed non-explanation served more as a dismissal of oprahs genuine concern of her outlandishly foolish statements, and didnt reveal anything more than her lack of concern for and connection to the african diaspora and related struggles

Basically. Erasing difference makes it more difficult to accurately track under/overprivilege by difference, which is data needed to correct systemic biases—

Who doesn’t want that?
