Hey, everyone. So this is really, really important. Especially people in the TACOMA, SEATTLE AREA.
Early this morning (Sat. June 21) around 3:00 AM my husband saw somebody jump our backyard fence and snatch our 15 week old puppy, Fennris. Everything happened so fast, and it was completely unexpected so by the time we went after them, they had already gone. 
The puppy is about 15 weeks old, an Alaskan Klee Kai (miniature husky). He weighs around 6-7 lbs and his coat is white/gray/black and he has bright blue eyes. He is wearing a blue collar with a nametag on it that reads “Fennris”. 
We believe somebody grabbed the puppy, got into a car and drove away. 
Please, please, please anyone in the Tacoma, WA area keep an eye out and if you see anything at all or hear anything PLEASE contact me right away. 
If you don’t live in the Tacoma, WA area I would greatly appreciate it if you could signal boost this to your followers. 
Fennris is the sweetest dog you’ll ever meet, and he’s young and he’s scared. He’s not just a pet, he’s a family member. Please help us find our puppy. 
We are offering a $500 reward for his safe and unharmed return.

I’d wager they deserve to succeed in the Sciences even more than men because of the sexism and misogyny they experience.

You have no right to say these things to these amazing women, many of whom I consider to be friends. Wow. That seems like really fucking wrong. And offensive.

If anybody needs me, me and my lady bits will be getting some fucking science done. I’m oddly excited to have been name checked by this shitty anon.

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.
