Practice with Pronouns is a site that lets you practise subject, object, possessive, and reflexive forms of English third person pronouns. It comes with a few of the most common options, but you can also fill in whatever pronouns you like. Useful for both English learners and people wanting to practise using nonbinary pronouns.
As if it couldn’t get any more delightful, it often uses quotes from Welcome to Night Vale in the practice sentences, which is definitely far more entertaining than See Spot Run. The feedback sentences are also very cute.
(Hm, I’m pretty sure the second blank in that screenshot should have said “xyr”, in retrospect.)
i am poison and everything i touch dissolves if you touch me you will shatter. if you touch me i will shatter into shards and slice you. i need to be buried deep into the dirt and to be never touched again and never pop like a dropped flask ever again
when you say “nonbinary identities don’t exist BECAUSE SCIENCE”
all you’re telling me is that you don’t know what science is
science is a systematic attempt to describe the world. science does not define the world
if you were to go up to a scientist and say “there are things that exist in the word that science does has not yet adequately described, or described at all”
the scientist would be like “yeah i know, that’s why i still have a job”
When it comes to objectification, this is a great example of why comparing male strip clubs to Hooters is a “false equivalent.”
i’m creating a kickstarter for cojones right now
HOLY SHIT THO
i have been in the psych er twice and have been in a partial inpatient program since the 9th my life is an continuous exhausting stress ball and things feel really bad.
i am going to stay with my parents for two days and am going to sleep for all of them.
also look at my arm some shitty med tech fucked up my blood draw so bad.
sometimes it feels like i’m going to be broken forever and the only things I’ll be able to congratulate myself on is taking four stops on the T to pick up my SSRI.
The definition of misogyny: systematized sexual, physical, and emotional violence levied against women in order to maintain the global exploitation of women’s lives and labor under the power-system of patriarchy for the benefit of men as a ruling class
The definition of misandry: someone made a sparkly meme on tumblr that hurt me in my man-feelings
i think we must stop chalking everything up to “straight men” cause that lets off the hook: 1. gay men who constantly objectify women, violate womens boundaries, make degrading comments about women but think its ok because theyre Gay Lol :) 2. bi/pan men who certainly do not treat the women they date any better than straight men do, let me tell you
3. trans men who think their birth assignment gives them a special right/duty to shit on trans women and/or shut trans women out of the very “women’s spaces” they occupy
Stevenson smartly introduces us to this world through archetypes–a vaguely medieval setting, a genius supervillain, a dimwitted knight, a young maiden–and then immediately starts twisting these ideas into something wholly original. Here, a king rules, knights joust, and magic is real, while at the same time news anchors read from teleprompters, mad scientists create laser guns, and pizza delivery is only a phone call away. Old tools, like swords and shields, exist alongside contemporary ones–Ballister never has anything in his fridge but experiments–and even next to science fiction, like the floating computer screens the Institution uses to complete their space age-esque headquarters. The story takes us from fruit stalls in open markets, to high-tech labs filled with floor-to-ceiling test tubes, the contents of which are accented lime green.
