The Week’s End // A Few of My Favorite Internet Things

Happy Saturday everyone! If you’re looking for some interesting reads to check out while you kick back and relax, look no further. Every Saturday I like to share with you the most interesting things I found across the great, wide web. Enjoy!

One of the most beautiful and heartbreaking things I’ve read in a long time. A 12-page-letter written and read out loud from the Stanford Rape Survivor to her attacker, Brock Tuner. After you read that, check out Vice President Joe Biden’s response. It was a beautiful thing too :)

I would link to the letters written by his father and friend, but they are awful so, no. Instead here is a letter, written by me, to them, about what they should have said.

By the way, teaching your kids not to grow up to be a Brock Turner isn’t as complicated as you might think.

When a woman becomes nothing more than a man’s muse, it is the same as saying she is just a tool for him. A thing to help him, not a person, an equal, that he loves.

Well, it seems the Democratic Presidential nomination process has come to an end. I had hoped Sanders would win but, regardless of what some Sanders supports think, he has lost. So, #GirlIGuessImWithHer,

No mother has been perfect; we can’t help but love them anyway. I am reminded of the quote: “cruel mothers are still mothers. they make us wars. they make us revolution. they teach us the truth. early. mothers are humans. who sometimes give birth to their pain. instead of children. – hate” by Nayyirah Waheedsalt.

If you feel depressed, if you feel sad, hopeless, or unimportant, remember that your mind may be lying to you. Don’t listen to it!

If you’ve been watching Game of Thrones this season, and you are a big nerd like me, you may have been wondering how exactly a key story element actually works. There is finally a nerdy answer for you.

Just because people hate you for being skinny does not mean you are being “shamed.” It might be hard to hear, but it is true. I had to learn too.

The world is losing it’s “third places“. We might replace them with fast food restaurants, which we have plenty of.

Dan Savage doing what Dan Savage does, talking extensively about gay stuff and sex stuff.
