straight people on tv show: *literally have sex*

*silence*

gay people on tv show: *exist*

ok.. :\ but… ok like im not homophobic… :\ im ok with gay people but why do you have to shove it in my face… :\

Hi .. do you have any advice for me? I can't handle that my mom is convinced that being gay is a choice and for her being bi is even worse.. she kind of seems disgusted by it. I'm disappointed that a person that I admire is homophobic. I asked her what she would do if I would be bi and she said that she would feel sorry for me.. what she doesn't know is that maybe I am bi. So, I'm kind of afraid of figuring it out and I'm kind of ashamed for being afraid of figuring it out. What should I do?

Coming out is so so scary. I was terrified to even say the word “bisexual” until I was 18 years old and even then it was sort of forced out of me. Your mom won’t know how she really feels until it’s a reality — until she sees the very real situation of you, her child that she presumably loves, as an out bisexual person. But! If you are scared, that is totally legit and totally okay. You are allowed to be scared. You are allowed to not be out to your mom if that doesn’t seem like a good, safe idea (depending on your age, I’m assuming you’re young/in high school maybe). DO NOT FEEL ASHAMED FOR NOT BEING OUT. It is okay to do anything that makes you feel safe. 

You have to protect yourself. Though it sucks to feel disconnected from someone you love in that way. To feel like you’re hiding yourself from your own mother. I get it. :( I’m sorry you’re going through this, and I’m here!

After reading about gender-bias and conversation dominance in the classroom, I asked for a peer to observe a physics class I was teaching and keep track of the discussion time I was giving to various students along with their race and gender. In this exercise, I knew I was being observed and I was trying to be extra careful to equally represent all students―but I STILL gave a disproportionate amount of discussion time to the white male students in my classroom (controlling for the overall distribution of genders and races in the class). I was shocked. It felt like I was giving a disproportionate amount of time to my white female and non-white students.

Even when I was explicitly trying, I still failed to have the discussion participants fairly represent the population of the students in my classroom.

This is a well-studied phenomena and it’s called listener bias. We are socialized to think women talk more than they actually do. Listener bias results in most people thinking that women are ‘hogging the floor’ even when men are dominating.

Implicit bias is a thing, just like privilege. Calling it out isn’t meant to shame anyone, but to alert us to step it up and improve ourselves so everyone can have a voice. Be conscious of what you and others are saying, and know when not to speak.

This show wasn’t for kids

😂

Considering this is from the short-lived “Ren and Stimpy’s Adult Party Cartoon” that was on Spike TV, you’re right, it wasn’t. Although the original Nick series wasn’t much more appropriate.
