#WomenAgainstFeminism

"When I’m dating someone, I’ll sometimes make two sandwiches and go to hand my dude one of them, but then, right as he’s about to take it, I’ll throw the sandwich out the window and make him watch as a stray dog eats it instead. I don’t even want to do it and both of us feel bad while it’s happening because I have a sandwich, the dog has a sandwich and the man I’m with doesn’t have a sandwich. But I do it anyway. For feminism."

This is really the only way to respond when someone says feminism means you don’t cook for your boyfriend. Because obviously nice people want to do nice things for the people they’re with. Stray dogs included!

The woman in the blue coat approached me by the United Nations building yesterday, and said: ‘There is an interesting man around the corner that you should photograph. I don’t know his name, but everyday he stands directly across from the UN, and says ‘God Bless You’ to everyone who walks past. I’ve always sort of viewed him as the conscience of the world.’'Let's go together,' I said, and she agreed to bring me to where he was standing. When we finally found the man, I asked for his photo, and he cheerfully agreed. But he pointed at a nearby wall:"Let’s take the photo under that scripture," he said.

A great end to session 1 of Model UN camp!

This is an amazing story that I think everyone can enjoy, but it offers something special for historians (and future historians!) I get frustrated when people say the reason we study history is to not repeat it. I personally don’t think that every academic subject needs a justification that usually amounts to “If we don’t study this people will die!” Because the real reason we study history is so that history won’t die. History means peoples’ stories, memories, and lives won’t ever die. This podcast demonstrates the importance of that and so much more.

"You know why we like it here so much? Because everyone who works here is passionate about something. It might not be something we understand, but it’s inspiring to be around those kinds of people. That’s why we all keep coming back."

"They came to America shortly after I was born. At first, my dad worked construction and my mom did cleaning jobs. Now he owns a newsstand, and she owns a boutique. They are my idols."
