I always thought the “but satisfaction brought him back” part was a joke from the Munsters.

Here’s another one: “Jack of all trades, master of none,” is just one half of the saying. The other half reads “but better than a master of one.”

Okay one more: “Ignorance is bliss” is also only half of the saying. It’s “When ignorance is bliss, ‘tis folly to be wise.”

“I’m tired of people asking me to smooth my name out for them. They want me to bury it in English so they can understand. I will not accommodate the word for mouth. I will not break my name so your lazy English can sleep its tongue on top. Fix your lips around them. No you can’t give me a stupid nickname so that you can replace this gift of five letters.” - Hiwot Adilow (linked above, performing the quoted piece)

“Give your daughters difficult names. Give your daughters names that command the full use of tongue. My name makes you want to tell me the truth. My name doesn’t allow me to trust anyone that cannot pronounce it right.” - Warsan Shire


pictured above: Entitled white woman Jenny Johnson in all her ethnocentricity. I grew up with women like her, they were my teachers, classmates. They resent any self-possessed “other” as “arrogant” for attempting to access the same common courtesy and respect they might allow those as vanilla as themselves. These women view it as their birthright to decide what is “weird” and “obscure” from within a niche limited to “white women named Jenny.” They blame their linguistic inadequacy on our parentage while resting on the privileges of their own. These women never amount to anything beyond an ignorant bully forever isolating themselves from incredible people with spectacular names.

our insistence that you pronounce our names correctly = “arrogance”

your insistence that our names are too difficult for you & that we should just deal w/the way you mangle them = ????? (the answer is white supremacy)

My senior design professor had an amazing Trini accent. People could barely understand him when he got excited and spoke quickly (who cares tho, handsome and brilliant 80+ year old engineer in a 3 piece suit every day? Yes and thank you).

On the first day of class, we all had to introduce ourselves. Many students were foreign and had varied names from their native languages. My professor would repeat everyone’s name after they said it. The Chinese students would say their Chinese names and the professor would struggle to repeat them.

The Chinese students would say, call me Tim or Susie, and the professor would get angry. NO, I WILL NOT. OVER ONE BILLION PEOPLE CAN PRONOUNCE YOUR NAME CORRECTLY. I CAN’T. THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH ME, NOT YOUR NAME. Now, teach me how to say it properly.

Although I am seriously judgmental towards White parents who give their kids really ridiculous names, it takes a special kind of asshole to refuse to properly pronounce someone’s name once you’ve been corrected.

Hahahahaaaa yeah, I make an effort to learn and say people’s names the way they want me to, because I want people to say my name the way I want them to.

I went to a party once and everyone was supposed to pitch in some money to buy adderall. I had never tried or even heard of it but I was young and stupid so I gave them 20 bucks. Later on, after we all took it, everybody was going crazy and having a good time and I was just sitting on the couch quietly so I googled ‘adderall’ on my phone and learned that it’s used to treat ADHD.

I have ADHD.

I paid 20 dollars to calm down.

76% of negative feedback given to women included personality criticism. For men, 2%. The study speaks to the impossible tightrope women must walk to do their jobs competently and to make tough decisions while simultaneously coming across as nice to everyone, all the time.
