“Philosophy requires reasoning, and women are irrational”

Funniest thing I have heard all week lmaoooo

What is it like to be a woman in philosophy?

I was accepted into a Masters program that did not accept many women. Several of the faculty thought that women had no place in the discipline. I happened to be in a class of almost all women, who were selected by a dissenting group of faculty in an attempt to balance the student population.

During my first year, I was told explicitly by one of my professors that I should not be in a philosophy graduate program since, “Philosophy requires reasoning, and women are irrational.”

The incoming class that followed my group consisted of about 15 students, all but one of whom were male.

Perhaps it’s not surprising that this school did not accept my application into its doctoral program, even though two schools of higher ranking did (thank goodness!).

Persistence, Perseverance & Victory

Altared Heart

But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.  Mark 5:33

The woman with the issue of blood, touched the hem of Jesus’ clothes, and was healed.  Then with fear and trembling fell down before Him, making a public confession of what just happened.  The unclean made clean by a touch.  Persistent faith rewarded.

A picture of persistence and perseverance in action.  In her despair pursuing her last hope with every ounce of energy and courage she had.  No other options left.  And then victory!

What if we came to Jesus daily with persistence?  Coming faithfully to where all healing flows — from Jesus?  Reaching out, unashamed, unabandoned in our pursuit of the One who desires to be our everything?  With fear, trembling and awe falling at His feet, telling Him the truth, holding nothing…

Kanye West

Never forget, you are a woman, and he, is your husband. Never let your pride, power or position take away from that dynamic. You became one because of the unconditional love you had for one another. When you are with him, you are still a strong and powerful woman, just remember you are HIS strong and powerful woman. Don’t take away you sensitivity and softness towards the man that you love more than anything else…

This was just a friendly reminder, to always be a woman. We are sensual. Just dont be sensual with everyone.



The only thing pretty

Are you the only thing?

I see people always and forever praising Glamour Gawds. But, where are the women/girls who are the ones of academic ability and capability being praised. I know most of you lifestyle and make up figures bring up that education is important (great for you), it just has a stronger impact coming from someone that actually practices what they preach. It has always been a competition, rather you want to admit it or not, and honestly it irritates me. Has anyone ever heard of being well rounded? I understand that business is business, but being intellectual should not be made to seem like it is being jeopardized for “all things pretty” to succeed.

I was scrolling down my instagram, pur usual (yes I said pur), and one of my favorite girls in the world posted a picture saying tag “the most inspirational people you know”, or something of that nature, dont directly quote me but it was of that essence. And how fitting only the glamour gawds were tagged (at least those were the only ones tagged when I was scrolling, there could have been other people from different industries tagged, but this is what I SAW) , or people that are correlated with that type of industry. Now, lets state a couple of facts. The girl that posted this, she is one I would consider apart of the glamour gawds (although she is educated and has her own business) her followers are more likely to be into that thing… fashion, makeup, all things pretty and nice. So this definitely has a direct correlation with glamour. Im just saying, its always “education this, education that” but can we tag someone of academic, financial, more than skin deep importance? Or is this not that type of party. Now yes, these women have built their brand and all that jazz so they are powerful in a sense and “all things pretty” is a billion dollar industry, but why does it seem that this is what has become more relevant and important.

Honestly, that is why I made this blog. To show that there is more. Hell yea, the shit sales but I rather teach my daughter about other things, sorry not sorry.

But no one is going to have this… are they. Nope. and I dont give a fuck because I am always here for the girls with the brains. Brains over beauty everyday.

Some of these girls that were tagged I actually love. Admire even. One of the girls came from the struggle so I am completely proud of her. I feel like society is going into a movement where we are moving from women being smart. They are just suppose to show up pretty and that irritates me. Because the men with the engineering degrees are so much better than the men that work at wendy’s but as long as a woman looks good, that’s all that really matters.

I am not, by any means, saying that women with books can not be “all things pretty”. Hey, that would make it even better. But that book side of them would not be as highlighted. Regardless of what any one says you know its true. I have my moment of “all things pretty” I wont even lie. I love my closet, I collect vintage blazers, I love viewing new collections but I rather walk through a bookstore, go to a philosophy seminar, read a couple pages of Plato’s Republic.

I give credit where credit is due. I am not trying to take any hard work from what these girls have achieved. I just think it is a problem when “all things pretty” is becoming the “only thing pretty”.


Pray for Purdue

Pray for Purdue

My Alma Mater means the world to me. It is what I call home and the safest place in life. Everyone that has attended Purdue, knows the pressure is intense but the legacy is so worth it. I have always wondered how you can cry for someone that you never knew, today I realized how. We are all boilermakers. Although we did not walk the same journey we have impacted the same legacy. I can not understand what could bring someone to commit such a crime. Just how I ponder over the hate crimes that still goes on at Purdue. Today I shed a tear for a boy I never knew, for a campus that I havent seen in 5 months, and for the family/students/staff and faculty that are distraught and heart broken. At the end of the day we are all and always will be Boilermakers. #BOILERUP
