About Schooldays: I work in a school which means I can see first hand how gender, race, and other forms of oppression are reinforced (but also sometimes smashed!). This series is a quick glance at things I hear or see in school that are funny, fucked up, or just plan fantastic.


I saw this picture in a 5th grade display about science. I regret not including the cat in the picture, I was taking it with my phone and wanted to get as close to the text as possible.

text in pic reads: My scientist is studying a cure for a huge cat. You notice scientists don't have to be boys.


I wish I had an analysis about the gendered workplace when I was 11!
