"To me what was so amazing was that here’s Peggy with her own office and here’s Joan filling in at Don’s desk. You just see these two trajectories. One of them which is completely devoted to marriage and is getting the worst of it, and one that is completely devoted to work and Peggy is succeeding."- Matthew Weiner
Over 700 Jefferson County High School students are staging walkouts and protests over proposed changes to the Advanced Placement History curriculum. According to Colorado Public Radio:
Last week, a school board member proposed that advanced placement history classes be required to promote free enterprise and patriotism and be required to avoid classroom materials that encourage social strife or civil disobedience. Two high schools in Jefferson County closed Friday after dozens of teachers called in sick in protest.
According the online petition to be delivered to the School District:
Jeffco Public School Board has just proposed a change of curriculum stating that, “Materials should not encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law. Instructional materials should present positive aspects of the United States and its heritage.”
This means that important parts of our history such as the Civil Rights Movement, Native American genocide, and slavery will not be taught in public schools. If these important lessons are not taught, children will not learn from them, and what will stop them from happening again? This is a severe form of censorship intended to keep the youth ignorant and easy to manipulate. I’m hoping to get enough signatures to prove that this is a public issue, so, please, if this is important to you, please sign. Do not let our youth grow up in ignorance; we all deserve the truth!

for me the biggest unsolved mystery of the world is whether or not My Immortal was a trollfic or a legitimate fanfiction that someone sat down and wrote.
Instead of saying “You’re fat and you’re ugly.”, I’m going to say “You are the person who helped your mum out, who saved your best mate, who lives with an illness, but keeps on going.”
as if men had a monopoly on murder
