Alas! An ill fate is on me this day, and all that I do goes amiss ~Aragorn, The Two Towers

Feeling like that today. When I get that kind of feedback from not one but two of my closest people I begin to understand how the problem is me.

and then my heart and my head go BUT. too much time on my hands. too many feminist websites. too many links to news stories where women, or people of color, or someone else who is not part of the majority of this country try to make their points and aren't heard. where the conversation is silenced with words about 'nit picking' or 'too sensitive' or 'too angry.'

i know i should be concentrating on homework anyway.
