'Just because I got an Emmy nomination doesn't mean the lives of trans people aren't in peril every day.'

— Laverne Cox (via angerisbeautiful-79)

cuz we KNOW there’s gonna be waaaay too many people patting themselves on the back saying “ok the trans issue is solved we did a good job” because laverne cox got nominated like NOOOOO there are still are still trans people that need to be supported listened to loved and defended. there is still a culture of transphobia and transmisogyny that needs to be dismantled. work to be done.

Today, pedagogical methods [such a scientific reading instruction] are primarily determined by the needs of nation states to prepare workers for the global economy…. Most national school systems are organized to serve an industrial-consumer state [that] is premised on the idea that a good society involves economic growth resulting from increased production and consumption of goods. In the industrial-consumer state, education is organized to serve the goal of economic growth.

Any of my wonderful followers struggle with reading during their schooling? HMU if you’re willing to answer some questions for an assignment.

I think the true mark of a veteran food-service worker is the clever ways they can tell you they’ve hidden and hoarded clean rags.

Intellectual decolonization doesn’t happen by means of learning new knowledge, but rather, by ‘learning to unlearn’ old knowledge

Any situation in some Individuals Which Prevent others from Engaging in the process of inquiry is one of violence. The means used are not important, to alienate human beings from Their Own decision making is to change them into objects.

So as many of you who give a shit might have noticed, or not, I haven’t been on here much. I just started my Masters in Teaching program and I am busy at literally all hours of the day. That being said, most of the radical-ish/leftist/sj/etc stuff I encounter throughout my daily life is education related (this program emphasizes critical pedagogy and social justice in education), so whatever I do post has like a 75% chance of being education related or personal. So deal with that or don’t.

Also it occurred to me today that, in my single life, I have put a lot of effort into constructing myself as a reformed bad boy/manic pixie dream boy which is completely irrelevant it’s just an interesting observation.

Also also, some of you know my full name/identity/etc. I trust most of you who do, but in any case keep that shit to yourself. I’m officially at a point where I CAN NOT afford students or parents to find my social networks/blogs.

Also also also do any of you know anyone at the UFCW? They’re the best fit for what my coworkers want (unfortunately the IWW didn’t work out), but they aren’t returning my emails. I have enough people organized, but they want legal protections that come with being represented by an established union (UNITE HERE turned us down).

My name is Jake. Trailer trash, bigender leftist with anxiety issues working a shitty job and studying to be an English teacher at SMCM.

I'm the blogger formerly known as domesticterrorism

I also help run the official Occupy Wall Street Tumblog.
