Today I cuddled a boa constrictor, swing danced with an Irishman, and discussed the link between musicality and the ability to imitate accents with a fellow Kiwi I happened to run into in the art gallery. And it’s only 3:30.

I think I want a pet snake.

"Should I do GISHWHES?" a letter to those in doubt

The short answer is, as you might have guessed, ‘yes’. But I see a lot of people hesitate because they’re afraid of this, that or the other thing, so I wanted to address some of those fears and hopefully alleviate them.

Under the cut I cover the following questions

- ONE: I don’t have a team!
- TWO: I’m not special enough for a team to want me!
- THREE: I don’t have any money!
- FOUR: I have no special skills!
- FIVE: I’m worried I’ll disappoint my team!

If you have other questions, please feel free to message me - I’m mostly10 on both twitter and tumblr.

The sexualization of girls and the infantilization of adult women are two sides of the same coin. They both tell us that we should find youth, inexperience, and naivete sexy in women, but not in men. This reinforces a power and status difference between men and women, where vulnerability, weakness, and dependency and their opposites are gendered traits: desirable in one sex but not the other.

Currently in Auckland Airport. Got two hours to kill until I have to meet the first of my girls, then another hour before the second one arrives, and then we have four hours to wait before our evening flight to Vancouver!

Thank god for 30 minutes of free airport wifi. Time to load all the fanfic pages!
