#john barrowman is having none of your misogynist bullshit

i love that barrowman’s response also distances him from the contestant"hahahaha women do laundry right john?  you with me, john?""don’t lump me in with you, you fucking martian”

This is what I’m talking about when I keep saying that men have to deny the endorsement. This guy wanted Barrowman’s tacit support or agreement for his sexism, as part of bonding through humour. John went nope.

Bolding mine.

When faced with an “amirite?” moment, you have to state clearly, no, you are wrong. Because anything less than a “Nope, Yo’re Wrong” will be gathered up as a “See? Approval”
Don’t forget, the more misogyny in the statement, the more likely the party stating it will use silence as a consent in a social conversation

Hi! I’m posting for the last time (I promise) about the survey I’m doing about Twitter for a college class. If you’ve already done, thank you very much! If you haven’t, it shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes. You don’t have to be in college, and you don’t have to be super familiar with Twitter. It would be super fantastic if you guys would help me out. Here’s the link: http://www.ling.ohio-state.edu/~kbck/twittersurvey/ 

Because I REALLY need several more responses, if you reblog this post (even if you’ve already taken it, and you don’t have to be following me) I’ll put your url in a drawing to receive one my favorite books. I’ll draw the url on Monday, April 21st, and inform the winner then.

Thanks!

Do a survey. I did it.


What are sandwiches? →

12minds:

This started out innocently enough: We wanted to do Sandwich Saturday, a day wherein we ate nothing but sandwiches. Sandwiches for breakfast, little snack sandwiches, etc. and we wanted to make it an annual event.

But what happens when you get a lawyer and a linguist in the same room? They want to define things. I’m writing a legal memo on this and Sharla actually turned this into a project for her master’s program and part of it involves crowdsourcing the question.

With all that said: TUMBLR YOU ARE OUR ONLY HOPE! Take this survey, reblog it, and let us know your thoughts.

Important sandwich research.


I'm currently a high school sophomore, hoping to go into linguistics (possibly with an emphasis in English or Spanish), and I was hoping if you knew of any good colleges (that aren't like Ivy Leagues) with a strong linguistics department. from Anonymous

Hii!
Great, that’s so cool, I’m from the UK though, and don’t know so much about American colleges.

I’d say that most higher education places will have a strong linguistics department, but they’ll usually differ in their specialism? I know Lancaster University specialise in corpus linguistics (I’ve met some people that go there) and a lot of their modules seem to be related to it. It’s hard to pick, because you might not know which branch of linguistics you like. 

Go visit different ones, even the ones you might not think you might not get in to/ that you’re not sure about from the prospectus, because it’s always good to get a feel of the place and know what you don’t like from a uni and go from there. Listen to your intuition, I guess, go wherever feels right for you.

Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful — Are there any American tumblinguists who can help our friend out? Let me know (:

Good luck on your search!

I’m also from the uk so can’t offer much, but I wanted to add that it’s not the case that most places have linguistics: most places don’t even offer it so choose carefully if you know you want to do it (and obviously you do!). In the uk it’s usual to go to an open day, which is what languagelinguistics refers to, but I suspect that’s less common in the us due to distances etc. My advice, knowing nothing about the process, is read some books, find some linguists whose work you like, and try and go to their institution. But probably American tumblinguists will give you better advice than that. Help?


I’m really easy going and I am almost never properly angry, but right now I am so furious and I’m in the house alone and it’s a work thing so I can’t even vent on the Internet. AAAAARGH.
