1. Even if you’re moving to an apartment that turns out being OK, like last time, which was only four years ago, if you have 10,000 books, it’s a difficult undertaking. The more that you mention this to people, even if people know about it, the more you are criticized for having 10,000 books. I finally said to somebody the other day, “You know what? They are books. It’s not like I am running an opium den for children. There’s nothing wrong with that — you may not want to have that, you may think that’s crazy, but you cannot have a moral objection to this.” Even real estate agents would say to me, “If you got rid of the books, you wouldn’t need such a big apartment.” And I would say, “Yes that’s true, but what if I had four children? Would you say, ‘Why don’t you put them in storage, because you can’t really afford an apartment for them?’” Basically my whole life, I’ve paid for these books. Buying them is nothing, but housing them is hard because they need a giant apartment. People say, “Why do you need such a big apartment — do you throw a lot of parties?” No. It’s for the books. I believe books to be the perfect companion.

    Today I spoke to my dad’s class

    3dprintmeafucktogive:

    on diversity and education. They were told to have some questions ready to ask about how my learning disabilities impacted my education and how teachers dealt with me and my disabilities. 

    It went well. People had good questions and I think they have a better idea of what their students are going through, even if they might not be able to see the disability in the ways they expect too.

    One question made me a little sad. This guy asked if there was anything he could do, or other teachers have done, to make the classroom calmer to help kids with Tourette’s not tic.

    I sort of answered his question, but then asked everyone what is the point of making a kid stop ticing. Why does a second grader need to stop moving? Is it because it is distracting to other kids? Or is it because there is something fundamentally wrong about the tics?

    Kids shouldn’t be told that the way their mind works is wrong. Kids should have to work with people who are neurologically different from them. And all some of the people I spoke to today could worry about was keeping their classrooms under control.

  9. In his resignation statement, Pearce said he was discussing the abuses of the welfare system and quoted someone without attributing them. That was a mistake that “has been taken by the media and the left and used to hurt our Republican candidates.

    So basically you’re defending your statements by claiming to be an unoriginal, unscrupulous eugenics advocate? OK.
