Me:
So when you see the 4 year old boy pull the little girl's hair...
Students:
He likes her!
Me:
Now they are around 11 or 12 and he grabs her arm and wrestles her to the ground even though she calls him a jerk and yells at him to leave her alone.
Students:
That is just how boys are.
Me:
Now they are 18 and he grabs her arm and--
Students:
Oh, that's not okay.
Me:
Really? How would he know? How would she know? How would you know? You just told me that for the first 17 years of these children's lives that you thought it was cute, sweet, and natural for a boy to grab a girl and be rough with her.
Students:
Oh.
Me:
Oh, is right.

I have done 40+ Golly drawings/paintings within a year. I roughly counted that to be 265+ hours. I have basically drawn Golly for 11 days straight.
I’d say I am pretty dedicated, like Gail, and of course, just a little bit insane.
FYI my favs are the Gail collage type one with the elephant, the blue one where Gail is giving Nick and Andy the death glare & the black and white watercolour where Golly have sad/disappointed faces at the Penny.

I want to cry these are so beautiful

Meet The First Woman To Make It Into The FDNY’s Calendar Of Heroes. Danae Mines became one of the few female firefighters in the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) 11 years ago, despite her family telling her that only men joined the department. This year, she broke down another barrier by becoming the first woman to be featured in the FDNY’s 2015 Calendar of Heroes. She had been told that the honor was reserved for men, but when she saw the open call for firefighters, she went, despite feeling a little intimidated standing in line with more than 100 men.  There are currently only 41 women in the department, but perhaps the attention Danae is getting will increase that number. “I wanted my picture in the calendar so that young girls and young women can see me and know that they can do this job,” she told the New York Daily News.

Hell yeah!
