“In Sally Ride’s biography, there’s another great scene of her discovering the string of 100 or so tampons that had been tied together, like a strip of sausages, so that they wouldn’t float away.”
Can you imagine some guy being employed to tie them all together??
Can you imagine some guy who must have been employed to tie them all together??
OH BUT ALOK~~~

Did need this. Did need Kshama Sawant today (and every day).
I want to be excited about Amy’s Kitchen, but I know we’ll never get one in my area. We don’t even have a Chipotle. :(
I know. Living on the east coast means I don’t see a lot popular restaurants and I am actually excited about this one.
I looove Amy’s Kitchen! Gotta figure out how to move to California…
You should…it’s quite lovely out here :) lol
I always wondered how menstruation worked in space!

Thank you for that one about LGBT teachers! I worry about that like every day :/
