No matter how terrible some of the kids (and parents) are,
the good ones make it all worth it.
Real talk.. The "Repressed Citizen" scene from Monty Python and The Holy Grail is probably where I first learned about #anarchy and what got me interested in anarcho-syndicalism.
I dunno if it's just me but it seems like image descriptions here are at a low ebb again.
When I click on an image that's integral to the point you're making and you haven't told me what it is, that makes me feel like I've just seen everyone else walk through a door that gets slammed in my face.
I'm not mad I'm just tired.

"I'm the research fairy, here to make your academic problems disappear"
Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
