Powerful photos capture the student protests in Mexico barely anyone is talking about 

While the world has focused its attention on the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, there’s another student movement gaining steam on the other side of the world.

The unfolding protests gripping Mexico began in the small town of Iguala, in the southwest region of Guerrero state, where the disappearance of 43 student teachers on the night of Sept. 26 has sparked outrage amid allegations of collaboration between local police and organized crime.

Unless I figure something out, my next year or so will consist of not a lot of money. Which, has already been the case, but more so now, it seems.

A list of goals to prioritize:

-Mountain bike for mountain biking.
-Boxing, since MMA is too expensive. And the boxing gym near me is cool.
-Bass equipment as an attempt to play music here in Austin.
-Saving for my own vehicle. Hopefully a functioning old Beetle.

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons

One of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen.

And if you read KSLs post on facebook about this, it’s full of people saying she did this as a “Publicity Stunt”.  It’s really pissing me off that this woman is constantly threatened, and yet people keep assuming she’s just sock puppetting it up.  It’s really sad we live in a world that will immediately try to discredit a woman who is threatened with horrendous violence, rather than attempting to protect her and others like her.

If this were just one woman, maybe that argument would work.  I am a “Gamer Girl” and have been for most of my life.  I have read stories from many women who work in the industry who face harassment and sexism.  It’s toxic and largely unpunished in gamer culture.

Sigh

DREAM 13: K.J. Noons vs. Andre Amado

The gym closest to me that’s also in my price range is a boxing gym. Stuff like this makes me want to learn how to bob and weave. 

The past few months have left me fatigued.

I’m starting to get a bit of calm. Every now and then I get moments of anxiousness. But in general, I’m glad I made the move. But I miss a lot of aspects of my life that felt established. 

I’m still dealing with the larger “What goal should I pursue?” question. In trying to get some perspective I’ve been trying to get some advice from my dad. The question has brought up a part of my dads history I never really paid much attention to. His dream of being a captain of a ship was crushed by an issue with his spine that made him “un-insurable”. It’s his biggest disappointment. Years of work out the window.

His advice is to “survive”. That doesn’t cut it for me, but I’m afraid of getting to that point.
