deuce : (30 September 2016 - 09:30 AM) Fun fact: when asked 'would u call yourself a feminist' not even half the class raised there hands... awkward
deuce : (30 September 2016 - 08:05 AM) ehh there's deffo binary trans stuff like,,, the "u have to pick" stuff
starbuck. : (30 September 2016 - 08:04 AM) how come? i mean if they talk about transgender it doesn't make sense for gender binary, right? tbh i don't really know a lot about the subject but this seems like common sense o.O not sure, though, i can probably be understanding things wrong
deuce : (30 September 2016 - 07:50 AM) I can't believe the gender binary is lurking around like pls I had hope
deuce : (30 September 2016 - 07:50 AM) ehh inequality, transgenderism, racism and that stuff
starbuck. : (30 September 2016 - 07:27 AM) what's that subject about anyway? i mean okay gender and diversity but what exactly? it sounds interesting
deuce : (30 September 2016 - 07:13 AM) the place where I have gender&diversity is like the most hidden room in the world I'd sooner find area 51's aliens
deuce : (30 September 2016 - 03:04 AM) my prof just said that the DDR did nothing good but their anthem I feel betrayed
cat! : (29 September 2016 - 11:49 PM) northern lights! but turns out tonight is not a good night for viewing :(
nyx : (29 September 2016 - 11:31 PM) oooo what is it? o.o
cat! : (29 September 2016 - 11:05 PM) brb off to check something off my bucket list!!!!! :D if the weather holds
