reason #983578957893 why i love Dr. SutterCollapse )

rofl <3

some dumbass in my class was criticizing him while i was walking to the library. i wanted to punch her face in. she's this woman for whom science totally escapes, even rather self-explanatory concepts (not even related to physics!), and asks him questions about crap he just said (and he's really rather good at explaining complicated concepts re: physics and science). and she has been annoying me all semester. not because she asks questions in class, or even 'stupid' questions. it's because she's made it to her age and she's acting like a 16 year old who, liak, toadaly just doesn't get it omg lol!! science is so weird!!11 and yeah, she takes notes and shit, and probably reads her text, but she isn't trying to give a fuck. which makes me mad.

anyway she says something like how he teaches poorly and that he's really weird and that's why no-one in class responds to him. no, the reason no-one in class responds to him is because everyone in class thinks they're better than him for some fucking reason and it makes me so fucking mad. this isn't to say Dr Sutter is better than anyone. i just mean, you know, i feel like my classmates are like 'lolololol uncool geeky nerd guy who loves science rofl rofl what a weirdo.' he's only 34, if i recall correctly, but they act like he's this out-of-touch old man. and i guess he is out-of-touch but it's just because he isn't conventional and whatever. he's fucking hilarious and no-one gets his jokes. that's not his fault. and he's such a happy guy even though he knows practically no-one in his astronomy courses pay attention (although he seems to have better luck with his general physics courses).

so, Dr Eric Sutter from Ulster County Community College... if you happen to google yourself one day and find my journal entry, i just want you to know that you are awesome and one of the best professors in the world and i'm the one in your class who laughs at all your jokes and actually writes them down to tell her friends later ('Mercury is like the Rodney Dangerfield of the solar system...') and if it didn't get me escorted off-campus i would have smacked the shit out of everyone and bitched at them to pay the fuck attention and give you the respect you deserve!! I AM GOING TO MISS YOU SO MUCH I WISH I COULD TAKE YOUR ASTRONOMY CLASSES EVERY FUCKING SEMESTER.

y'all --


if a guy is nice to you and rapes you, or somehow it has slipped his mind that he has raped you, or whatever, it's not 'grey area rape.' no matter how nice he is about assaulting you, it's still rape. it's like friendly fire: friendly or not, YOU'RE STILL SHOT AND KILLED.

i mean, let's call it 'friendly rape' if we have to, but what the fuck? grey area?

no-one should watch atonement because it is the most depressing movie ever, keira knightley or not.

if the fountain made you want to kill yourself, atonement will come in at a close second.

[ mood | infuriated and really upset ]

do not click this link if you feel easily triggered by school bullying.

http://stcharlesjournal.stltoday.com/news/sj2tn20071110-1111stc_pokin_1.ii1.txt

Megan, a 13-year-old girl, committed suicide after the mother of a girl she'd had a falling out with made a fake myspace to make her believe that a boy liked her. Megan had been depressed for awhile and was going to therapy and on on medication, and had been harassed for awhile because of her weight. After she was sent a myspace message where she was told that everyone would be better off if she'd died, she hanged herself in her closet. The story is much worse than that, but you'll have to click the link to read about it.

I am so infuriated. and not even necessarily by the situation -- although that itself saddens me so deeply i don't want to breathe anymore -- but by the comments from people on the article.

" Kids should be outside playing sports or something more creative and worthwhile than sitting behind a computer screen living in an imaginary, phony world. Sign out people! It's evil. "

There were many of these sorts of comments. But it isn't because of myspace that shit like this happens. I could tell you at least personally because ever since SECOND GRADE i had people harassing me just as badly. And it happened at every school i went to until I left high school. Was it me or are we raising a generation of socialized borderline-sociopaths? Who knows. I was always pretty weird. But you'd think I was the boil on the ass of humanity by the way these kids treated me. But the point is that blaming this on myspace is just, very plainly, either a lack of insight or an unwillingness to acknowledge the big and real problem -- that from childhood, people are ABUSING others and are either never reprimanded, or actually told that it's OK or justifiable, and that is fucked up.

" As horrible as this is, you can't really blame those who harassed Megan. The real world is full of people like that. Had Megan continued on with her life she would have discovered it at a later age. When you join the workforce you will find people who are just as abusive to your face and there's really nothing you can do about them if their boss won't fire them. Sad, but it is a sad world we live in. "

OF COURSE THERE WILL BE. And MOST PEOPLE go through life NEVER. EVER. going through severe bullying in their childhood and they make it through those adult situations of harassment JUST FINE. This mentality infuriates me the most. clearly, the person who wrote that comment never went through anything like that. And when you are a child, measures should be taken to shelter you from something like that. And if we actually did something about bullying kids when they were kids, we'd probably have LESS ASSHOLES in the world.

Not only that, but being abused that way in childhood actually makes you LESS ADAPTIVE to similar situations in your adulthood.

" I don't believe that an otherwise happy thirteen-year-old would commit suicide out of the blue because someone said bad things about them. There is clearly MUCH more to this story and it isn't being told. "

Megan didn't just up and kill herself out of the blue because of this. These kids have been doing this to her for awhile. So forget about prosecuting the mother for a moment -- how about the administration of the school FINALLY do something about the demon hellion children who harassed her until she died?

School bullying and abuse doesn't 'happen to everyone,' and it is not a 'normal' part of growing up. When a child is thinking about or trying to kill herself at ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen years old, it isn't because she is weak. It's because she sees she is being treated so poorly, and it never gets better, and worse yet, people either don't take you seriously about what's happening or just don't care enough to do anything about it.

I was so hated in every school I went to, even the 'loser' kids had licence to make fun of me. I asked someone when I was 10 years old what the easiest way to kill myself was. I remember thinking about something I'd seen in a book or magazine that if someone says they want to hurt themselves, you should tell an adult, and I thought about how no-one was going to tell on me because I didn't really matter. I was called names, shunned, laughed at viciously, had my things stolen, told exactly how unlikeable I was, and when I was older I too had the fake screenname drama, people pretending to like me so they could make fun of me later for believing them, prank calls, etc etc. And it went on ever since I was about seven years old. I never saw this happen to any of my other classmates, so I have concluded that that isn't 'normal.'

I'm glad I'm alive now. My life isn't great but I at least got to let my personality truly develop after high school and I have made some of the best, truest friends a person could ever have. But I know exactly what this shit is like, and I am so tired of the denial that goes on amongst adults about this problem, because adults want so desperately to identify with the 'normal' kids. It is so sick.

Why would it be so hard for parents to ass themselves to tell their kids to be nice to people and try to stand up for kids who are not being treated well? Or to talk to their kids when they physically witness their child harassing someone? Why would it be so hard to punish kids appropriately when they are doing something like this? I spoke to a man who taught 4th grade who was made fun of severely as a child, and his solution was that he told his class every beginning of the year that if he heard that they were making fun of someone, they had to sing a ridiculous 'I'm sorry' song to the 8th graders... and he never had a bullying problem in his classroom. It's even simple shit like that! But no -- we have to hold on to the ideal of survival of the fittest, we have to comfort ourselves in identifying with the persecutors instead of the victim, we have to tell these victims that THEY are the ones who did something wrong, or to 'just ignore it' like it's possible, or we have to punish them.

Now I'm a whole big blubbering crying mess and this is so ridiculous but I feel very strongly on this issue. I don't know.

I was tagged by Sasha :OOOO

List 7 songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words or even if they're not any good but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your LJ along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they're listening to in absolute random order.

"Apres Moi," Regina Spektor (http://www.sendspace.com/file/31z91z) This has been really getting to me. I've been wanting to write a dystopian novel, and the line, 'Be afraid of the lame -- they'll inherit your legs' reminds me of when I used to research Stalin's USSR, and the realization of the backward logic always used in dictatorships... ok whatever.

"Death is the Road to Awe," from The Fountain original soundtrack, performed by the Kronos Quartet and Mogwai (http://www.sendspace.com/file/n02kjb) Most dramatic thing you will ever listen to. As the boy said, "This would be a good song to listen to while driving up a mountain in Ohio or something while it was raining so hard that your wipers were useless. In the middle of the night."

"Empty Garden," Elton John (http://www.sendspace.com/file/kyldte) it's just a beautiful song.

"Driven Like the Snow," Sisters of Mercy (http://www.sendspace.com/file/bdv4h0) Reminds me of what it's like to grow up in a really rural place..

"Jack the Ripper," Morrissey (http://www.sendspace.com/file/prk7rf) you know how it goes

"Dragostea din Tei," Haiducii (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_y720UtCmk&mode=related&search=) shut the fuck up, I know this is wicked old meme, and that she stole O-zone's, but I've been obsessed with this version lately. I also rather love this remix: http://www.sendspace.com/file/0q329b

and we finish with: "Lucretia, My Reflection," Sisters of Mercy (http://www.sendspace.com/file/63fd39) 'Get down, get undressed! Get pretty, but you and me, we've got the kingdom, we got the key!' COME ON. YOU HAVE TO DOWNLOAD THIS ONE.
