Emily asks "Where My Ladies At?

Stop. Watch this.

The lack of women with STEM shows on YouTube is the nail, Emily Graslie is the hammer, and this video is the proverbial strike upon its head. There’s not much that I can say that Emily doesn’t say better, and truer, and from an emotional place of which I can only begin to imagine the outermost atoms of the outermost superficial shell.

Digging into how women are treated on YouTube taps into much larger issues, in STEM fields and society in general. But it’s also a very visible place to begin to make an impact and force change. I think I still fall into the “not knowing exactly how I fit in to this” category like she mentions. And I know there’s lots of people, male and female, who feel like that. But we’re here, we’re listening, and we have your back. That’s a start.

Head over to the video page to see a great list of female-led STEM YouTube channels in the description. Can’t wait to see that list grow.

This is important.

To the people who are always asking “WHEN ARE YOU AND KATHERINE GONNA MAKE A BABY!?”

I LOST it at “babies”

I lost it at Tarantulas…they should be after Babies, and also under Tamagotchis…this chart isn’t even big enough…

This is me.  I am Blanche.  Only, it should read, “Not all my dreams are about food.  Sometimes I dream about sex.”

This is the STUPIDEST post I’ve ever seen.  And girl, I know you’re young…that’s just barely an excuse.  But you’re getting to the age where you can do things, like vote.  Yes, the idea of an effective police force is idealistic…but it generally IS effective, 99 times out of 100.  You know when it ISN’T effective?  When someone has given up on ideals, and decides to “take the law into their own hands”.  I’m not advocating for a lack of self-defense, but you can’t believe that a head-shot is the answer to any threat.

Tiny Red Panda Cubs Are Big News

The Birmingham Zoo in Alabama is now home to the first Red Panda cubs born in the US this year. Born May 30, the two cubs currently are off-exhibit with mom. This is the first litter for the mother, three-year-old Sorrel and father, four-year-old Shifu. This was a significant birth as Red Pandas are a threatened species with fewer than 2,500 adults left in the world, according to The Birmingham Zoo.

Because most DC fans say his name wrong and/or have no idea how to actually say it, I decided to record this little thing here.

Um, duh?
