I am extra done. I didn’t even go to work today and I feel completely defeated. I hate teaching writing. I’m not good at it and they’re so far behind that I just don’t even know where to start. It’s taken me all day to grade 17 “papers”, and very few of them actually qualify as papers.
…and just as I was about to hit “post”, my coworker came in and gave me what my kids turned in today. And the sub said they worked really hard and “you can tell that they respect her”. I really needed that. Because even though they’re so behind, I have the necessary relationship to help catch them up. I need to remember that regardless of what the evaluation tool may say, some of this falls on their shoulders, too. Their learning is both of our jobs. We both need to do our best to make sure they get the most they possibly can out of their senior year curriculum.
so the last final i did in my last semester of college was for intro to women’s studies and it was a presentation on stuff we took away from the semester
what i took away was “y’all are bad at doin history”
also important to note, Janice Raymond is to be blamed for having trans health care removed as medically necessary in the States. Prior to that, GRS and/or HRT could be covered under insurance policies, but due to Raymond’s meddling,thousands of transgender USians are left w/out a means of paying for surgery or hormones.
and her thesis adviser was none other than noted transmisogynist mary daly
So much ugh.

Look, waking up at 7:30 on a Sunday morning may sound bad, but there are few things that morning sex and cuddles can’t fix. Imjussayin.
