From the text: "Critical thinking is only critical thinking if perspectives beyond those of the powerful and status quo are considered." Yes! Otherwise, it's a matter of punching down, not up. Great read.

Thanks! I missed that bus, but the sidewalks are also slippery. Otherwise, looking forward to heading home!

Stay safe out there, Toronto. You know it's bad when buses are sliding into sign posts.

To clarify, the burden of care shouldn't fall solely on the shoulders of communities and organizers; gov't has to claim responsibility here

Right. It's nice to see grassroots community efforts, but where are the institutional preventive measures? Something's missing from the picture

While this seems like a win-win scenario (up-cycling, helping homeless folks), can we also talk about how plastic bags are often made out of low-density polyethylene (LDPEs),which are toxic endocrine disruptors? This isn't a sustainable solution

Today is a very important day in Canada for women and girls that have been the victims of gendered violence. Today December, 6...we remember those who were murdered just for being women and wanting to be engineers.

I fixed it for you, . Also, broken treaties between Native Nations and the US government is actually the largest elimination of protected lands in American history.

To be sure, several academics explained their rationale (often unprompted, I should add). There wasn’t a universal consensus, either — “Dr. Mrs.” was for some a marker of social status, pride, amongst other reasons

So, this hits close to home. Many of the brilliant academics I met in Mauritius during fieldwork often used the moniker Dr. (Mrs.) Last name. No such courtesies were extended to men with doctorates 🧐

My apologies; EP happened in 1989. My stance still stands, though — words alone cannot compel lasting change

Such an important read on the persistance of structural, gender-based violence in Canada, 35 years after the massacre. Memorialization without meaningful, systemic action is a disservice to victims. They deserve better. We must demand better

Last week the US President shared anti-Muslim hate videos. Today the Supreme Court approved the Muslim ban. This is how hate gets normalized. We must all resist together.
