Here is the World.

"Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid."
— Frederick Buechner

Hi! I'm a writer and this is my tumblr. I post lots of things about representation and diversity and writing and art. There are also cute animals, nerdly things and dragons on occasion.

I am just learning about trigger warnings and tagging, so please be careful, especially when browsing the terrible tag. I’m going to try and do better about that going forward, but I post anything that needs more/better tags, please let me know. I want this to be a safe space. :)

There will occasionally be personal things, like links to my blog or book news, but mostly it’s just me reblogging other people’s smart thoughts and giggling at hobbit gifs.

This was basically my reaction to finding gluten free Rice Krispies at the grocery store.

I learned today that Obama is only the fourth acting president to visit a Native American reservation…..

That’s called leadership

Medievalpoc Presents: History of POC in Math and Science Week, 8-3-14 through 8-9-14!

Medievalpoc’s first Patreon Milestone Goal has been reached, and the History of POC in Math and Science Week is happening soon! This all-new themed week will focus on the contribution of people of color to the fields of mathematics, science, physics, medicine, natural philosophy, and much, much more!

There will be a focus on primary documents with interactive elements, visual and documentary evidence, innovators and their biographies, and notable personages of color from the Islamic Golden Age, Medieval Europe, African Empires and Universities, Asian images and texts, and discussion about early modern globalization regarding how this knowledge traveled.

If you have an article, image, document, or commentary you would like to submit, here’s your chance to weigh in on this topic! Please use the “Math and Science Week” and any other relevant tags for your submission, and I look forward to hearing about your favorite mathematicians and scientists of color!

William H. Foster III, comic book historian, on representation in comic books. From PBS’s Superheroes: A Never-Ending Battle.

Because a post crossed my dash recently asking why we need to push for more representation in comic books and media in general. 50 years later, this man still tears up because in one panel, Peter Parker spoke to an unnamed black kid. That’s why we need representation.

Weepy.

Meet Pickles, aka “Catosaurus.” He was rescued in Boston and he’s over 3 feet long.

I have reblog this because I love cats and i’m from Boston.

I want to meet this cat and crown him King of Cats.

you kids these days with your rapidly growing concern for the state of the world and your knowledge of important issues at increasingly younger ages despite having been told your opinions don’t matter by the adults who put you in these situations
