eamcintyre started following you

i’m very angry with you, just so you know

You should be flattered! I hadn’t been on tumblr for quite awhile, and was scrolling through my dash, and thought, “Huh, I don’t see any posts from Amanda. Has she really not posted at all today? Or yesterday? Is she STILL THERE?” 

And then I spent a good few minutes trying different combinations of your blog URL (my browser thought it was s-tayinbedgrowyourhair, what’s up with that?)  and then AHA I found it and weirdly I wasn’t following you. Evidently Tumblr makes you randomly unfollow people? Because I definitely was following you last time I checked in on tumblr, but then… not.

OMG YOU SHOULD COME.

THERE ARE SUB-$250 FLIGHTS

IF I DIDN’T NEED A ROUND TRIP I’D BE THERE IN A HEARTBEAT

GIVE ME A FEW DAYS, I MIGHT BE ABLE TO SWING THIS

THIS WOULD BE SO AWESOME! Re-blogging to tag Alex and Hope because HELLO you should ALL COME! 

Keep me posted.

WHAT IS HAPPENING???? ARE WE GOING TO BOSTON???? ok, honestly though, if we are serious about it i could possibly maybe afford it? assuming my parents don’t mind just buying me a plane ticket for christmas?

Well so I am serious as a heart attack - you are all totally welcome any time. I am off school mid-dec.-mid.jan., and my parents would be thrilled to pieces to see you here! And, as I said to Amanda, Catherine would probably implode. So if you can swing it, COME.

eamcintyre replied to your post: hey i just sent an email to jesse thorn and it felt pretty good

Did you see he apologized? Right after this tweet he posted, “Apologies for last tweet.” Doesn’t totally exculpate him, of course, but you know, he did apologize without qualification.

i saw. i still don’t give a fuck. he apologized almost immediately but he didn’t bother deleting his shitty tweet. 

Lots of journalists (and journalists-ish, which is the category I’d put him in) don’t delete tweets as a rule. They post corrections. Idea is that you have to take responsibility for your mistake - you can’t pretend it didn’t happen. You just have to own up to it.

NO i don’t actually want to hear anything more about obama’s “support” for gay marriage until his administration actually makes positive steps to support some type of federal measure

at the very least he/they could vocally oppose state measures intended to prevent gay marriage or discriminate against gay people

until then

i will not be applauding

Right. To the extent the state extends a privilege (marriage) it must do so equally. Period. And while I’m glad Obama said what he said, he knows full well federalism is not appropriately used as a cover for the states to disenfranchise disfavored minorities.

That said, talking with a friend about Roe this afternoon - she made that argument that SCOTUS stepped in too early, we were better off having the states continue to liberalize their abortion laws, because the process didn’t happen organically via legislatures it polarized abortion much more than it would have been otherwise, etc. You’ve heard it.

I understand that argument, and strategically, I get why the LGBT establishment prefers the state-by-state, let’s-knock-down-DOMA-first strategy rather than this prop8/SCOTUS thing, and of course I get why Obama chose not to give his full-throated, “Of course the states and federal government must recognize the marriage of two people of the same sex of course they may not discriminate; we have a long line of jurisprudence saying exactly that! Loving, see romer, lawrence, etc.” 

But you know what? Obama’s made the political calculus that he can’t afford to do that. Fine. In a utilitarian sense, in winning-the-election sense, perhaps even for the rights of LGBT folks over the long run sense, that may have been the right call. But the other side of that calculus is that I get to be mad at him for this federalism-allows-states-to-ignore-the-14th-amendment idea. Or at least not give him accolades for it.

My dad, when I told him for possibly the eight gabillionth time he should run for, uh, city council. Not quite POTUS, but whatever. (I have also told my mom to run nine gabillion times, for the record. She has a classier way of declining.)

all due respect but your dad would not be a great dictator

(via stayinbedgrowyourhair)

Oh no my mom would totally be the better dictator. Also my mom would crush my dad in an election, which I think would be really fun, but evidently they disagree.

- Friend telling me that he could not ever see me married to a politician in any of the four dimensions. I’m choosing to assume he meant to compliment me and also cast aspersions on our sexist political system. (via eamcintyre)

oh please you’re SOOOO going to end up married to a politician

the thought of you wedded to some unambitious sack of loserdom is WAY less likely

basically if you’re not an incredibly successful millionaire in five years i’m going to be hugely disappointed in you

(via stayinbedgrowyourhair)

Maybe there’s some middle ground between politician and unambitious sack of loserdom? Just throwing that possibility out there. 

Also, re: millionaire - yeah, well, just start building up your disappointment there. I am pretty confident my odds of becoming a millionaire are less than my odds of winning the lottery.

Pretty good, actually, since I mocked you and you are still willing to pay off the, oh, $60,000 I will owe when I graduate.

john green said the same thing, everyone else kind of overlaps him

John Green is one of those people that everyone is always telling me I would love and yet I have never bothered to find anything out about him, other than knowing he is the nerdfighter guy.
