Not only are women expected to weather sexual violence, intimate partner violence, workplace discrimination, institutional subordination, the expectation of free domestic labor, the blame for our own victimization, and all the subtler, invisible cuts that undermine us daily, we are not even allowed to be angry about it.

The premise of the venture is his belief that storytelling and technology should play a bigger part in learning—a world away from India’s system of rote learning. “When you understand the process of creation, you care more, which is completely missing in our education system. Through this (project), I get to inculcate an attitude of questioning the status quo,” Ranjan, who is from Muzaffarpur, a small town in Bihar, said.

This isn’t about whether what Griffin did was really so bad, but our collective inability to prioritize a system of shared values. Holding up the decapitated head of the president is deeply disturbing, but so was Trump’s mocking of a disabled reporter and bragging about sexually assaulting women on the Access Hollywood tapes. We’re all well aware that Trump’s list of unforgivable infractions is longer than a Costco receipt, and yet he occupies our highest office, supremely unscathed.

I really identify with this. The article goes on to talk about 2 different types of empathy- one where you can understand someone else's perspective and the other where you actually put yourself in their shoes. It talks about how the latter is exponentially more exhausting and emotionally draining.

I truly believe that I feel just as exhausted and emotionally drained in both cases-- I hate seeing anyone feel a bad way not just bc I don't want it for myself but bc I don't want it for that person either, stranger or not.

Empathic people who easily take on other people’s feelings can spend their days feeling overwhelmed, hurt, and heavyhearted.

Every single Republican must make a decision: Insist on full-throated, independent investigation of the firing, or be party to a possible cover-up. Every candidate for office in 2018 must be asked a question: If it is determined that Trump fired Comey to interfere with the Russia probe, would that representative vote for impeachment/senator vote to convict? Yes, it really has come to that.

In the midst of one of the most activated, energized, ground-up movements in modern Democratic political history — where the energy is coming from women who remain underrepresented in state and federal legislatures — the Unity Tour, with its two men making pronouncements about what the party should do next, felt exceedingly out of touch. And the dynamic — the women doing the labor of organizing and protesting and campaigning, knocking on doors and making calls and sending postcards, while guys speak from the microphones about the need to compromise on their rights — is depressingly retro.

Great read.

When you get down to it, like everything else in America today, this is about the haves and the have-nots. If you’re in first class, you don’t need to worry about shock troops coming and beating you until you get out of the seat that you bought. If you’re not in first class, you’re on your own. If you’re in the top one percent on Wall Street, you turn a tidy profit off the whole ordeal. This is what class warfare looks like.

It matters because independent American breweries create beers for their local regions. They invest in their communities. They employ local workers. And they pay taxes — local, state and federal. American craft brewing is American manufacturing that doesn’t outsource these well-paying American jobs.

It’s not wrong for Americans who care about the EPA to be concerned right now. Many Republicans want to see its powers diminished or removed altogether. But Congress will not attempt to curb the EPA’s influence by closing it outright. Instead, it will wage war on the agency through a thousand little cuts—through bills, through joint resolutions, and through budget riders.

To those women who say they are "tired of feminists" or are rallying behind the #NotMyMarch hashtag... All women, yes YOU, owe marchers and feminists past and present for the rights you currently enjoy. Your daughters, nieces and granddaughters will continue to need (and hopefully join the ranks of) marchers and feminists to protect and expand those rights in the future. Read this article, it says it better than I can.

You can make your own choices, speak and be heard, vote, work, control your body, defend yourself, defend your family, because of the women who marched.

Radical candor, then, results from a combination of caring personally and challenging directly. But what does it look like in practice? Scott has created an acronym to help people remember:

HHIPP: “Radical candor is humble, it’s helpful, it’s immediate, it’s in person — in private if it’s criticism and in public if it’s praise — and it doesn’t personalize.” That last P makes a key distinction: “My boss didn’t say, ‘You're stupid.’ She said, ‘You sounded stupid when you said um.’ There's a big difference between the two.”
