Trans Women Belong at Smith:
Q&amp;A meets with the Board of Trustees this Saturday at 8am. They want to take a full academic year to decide if they want to amend the admissions policy to facilitate the admission of more trans women to Smith College. 
We decided to welcome them to Smith this weekend by showing our support for a more immediate decision. "It’s been too long, trans women belong." Send the Board an email or phonecall in support of trans women directly or by signing our petition.

just an f.y.i but j.crew is selling swimsuits for $5-10 dollar range right now in their sale section if you want to pick one up 

this sale looks really great and also includes cute rash guards on sale for femme folks that might not be into a bra-type swimsuit top

"Rahm Emanuel is not caring about our schools; he is not caring about our safety. He only cares about his kids. He only care about what he needs. He do not care about nobody else but himself.

He let Barbara Byrd-Bennett, a woman that’s from Detroit who don’t even know the streets of Chicago where I’m from, come in and close these schools.” [x]

3 Ways to Speak English.

Jamila Lyiscott is a “tri-tongued orator;” in her powerful spoken-word essay “Broken English,” she celebrates — and challenges — the three distinct flavors of English she speaks with her friends, in the classroom and with her parents. As she explores the complicated history and present-day identity that each language represents, she unpacks what it means to be “articulate.”
