Sorry, the original title made me feel pretentious so you get that instead~
First of all, more photos!
For those of you looking at them, which I assume there must be at least one because somebody faved one of the photos. Was it one of you guys?! IDK I was caught a bit by surprise by it?
Anyways in other other news (I did just skip the other news because it was boring SPSS stuff...you guys want to hear me complain more about the professor? DIDN'T THINK SOOO) I did in fact see the crap going down in that transgender
post, but decided not to get involved due to my current emotional condition being fragile already lately, and my internet access being so limited.
And I'm not going to really respond to it here either because it feels kind of like airing dirty laundry in public somehow despite it being a public post, and besides which I'm pretty crap about speaking on feminist topics and you really should go read an actual woman's feminist blog for that kind of thing. Because first of all I'm a guy, and second of all I only recently pulled my head out of my ass about feminism (I had a reason but it doesn't really matter) so I'm not really educated on it enough to say anything really worthwhile, especially not compared to everything that's already out there. Written by women. Who do in fact know best what they're talking about wrt feminism. Go read that stuff.
So basically what I was going to say is just that I was actually already planning on talking about some of the themes that came up in that discussion that's going on, especially re: my male privilege as an FtM guy, so I just wanted to assure you guys that that's...coming. Sometime. Not right now because as you might be able to tell I'm still kind of frazzled, and probably not until I get back (23rd?). But maybe sooner than that since we have two days to kill in Beijing and no more touristy places to go, and Ying just up and finished tabulating all the surveys
tonight, which is not what I expected when she asked me to show her how to do it. I seriously thought I was doing all of those like, tomorrow. How is she so awesome?!
Okay final thoughts for tonight:
[12:19] Amanda: so are you liking Cortland?
[12:19] Me: kind of
[12:19] Me: especially cause
[12:19] Me: i like
[12:19] Me: cortie
[12:19] Me: as a nickname
[12:19] Me: i know it si dorky but i am a dork
IT SI DORKY, says the man who quoted the first X-Men movie in his last serious post. Does that make me the expert on dorky, or too much of a dork to rule on such matters?
