like how big an age difference is 10 years really?
There are no Jack Kerouacs or Holden Caulfields for girls. Literary girls don’t take road-trips to find themselves; they take trips to find men.
"Great" books, as defined by the Western canon, didn’t contain female protagonists I could admire. In fact, they barely contained female protagonists at all."

Measles has surged back in Europe, while whooping cough is has become a problem here in the U.S.
Childhood immunization rates plummeted in parts of Europe and the U.K. after a 1998 study falsely claimed that the vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella was linked to autism.
That study has since been found to be fraudulent. But fears about vaccine safety have stuck around in Europe and here in the U.S.
NPR maps the resurgence of preventable diseases due to public ignorance and lamentable misinformation about vaccines.
Pair with Bill Gates on vaccines, animated.
Andrew Wakefield has so much fucking blood on his hands, it’s unbelievable.
there’s a lot of bullshit in western medicine & science. vaccines, however, are not bullshit.
the vaccine wars are really sickening to me. because people advocating against vaccines are people with blogs and people without medical training. and the people advocating FOR vaccines are doctors and scientists. and still so many choose the side of the people who are clearly not experts. and it’s terrifying.
p.s. if you are interested in the vaccine controversy, you should watch the frontline documentary “frontline: the vaccine war”. it’s very good and will help you understand why each side thinks the way it does and what the true consequences of letting a generation go unvaccinated are.
i used to get drunk every weekend. really drunk. run-around-kissing-everyone-drunk. and i would call the boys i’ve slept with and tell them i don’t love them. and i’d sleep with new boys and tell the i don’t love them. and i’d spend a lot of time telling boys i didn’t love them.
once i sat with a best friends and we lit 300 matches. we sat there and lit them off of one another, sometimes in trains so it looked like a little dragon of fire, dancing out of our fingertips. we woke up in the morning to 300 matches in the trash can and got in a car and drove to boston.
once i found my best friend crying on the bathroom floor. she was drunk and i was drunk. i crawled under the door of the stall and sat next to her with my hand on her ankle.
once i sat with a friend in the hallway and let him cry into me. and i cried into him. and there was so much crying. but he is a best friend now and he wasn’t before that.
i don’t drink much anymore. on friday nights i sit and i eat vanilla ice cream with bourbon and i watch movies or read books. i am mostly alone. my friends are scattered around the country and we do not cry together or burn matches together anymore.
