I'm tired of people (white folks, but also South Asians and others) mispronouncing my name when they introduce me at public events. If you don't know, please ask! And to help you remember, here's a helpful guide: https://www.youtube.com/embed/hgpNla8AkIQ?start=68 …

Remember when this woman *went to jail* because she used her dad’s address to get her kids into a better school district?

This has been a terrible week of collective mourning for lost children. My prayers for this family - this horror is just unfathomable.

I can’t stop thinking about Riya Rajkumar. Rest in power, beautiful child. Praying for her mother in her unimaginable grief.

If you want to live in a province that protects its children, occasionally you have to roll over in bed and check your phone.

James Watson is not 'the father of DNA,' he is 'one of the men who were first to accurately describe the structure of DNA,' which he did so by sneaking a peek at Rosalind Franklin's experimental results, who he then spent years belittling.

Meat eaters be like “vegan food looks and tastes gross” And then eat something that looks like leftover dishwater

Meat eaters be like “vegan food looks and tastes gross”

And then eat something that looks like leftover dishwater

Can we talk about white veganism for a second? The kind espoused by folks like Jona here, who begins his Twitter bio with the Sanskrit word for “nonviolence” but then craps on Asian cultural expressions in order to advance his neocolonial beliefs?

Last night of The Future - the absolute most fun I’ve ever had in the classroom. Grateful for this smart and creative crew of time travellers. I miss them already!  If we really did have a dept time machine, I’d go back and do it all again  👽🧟‍♂️💫🚀🛸 @smuhalifax @SMU_Rels

By MILES the longest thing I've ever written, and not even intended to be. A classic case of forgetting the depths when you spot the iceberg. (And I still understand just a sliver of this place. What I do is thanks only to the generosity of people there.)

It was a Brahmin woman who wrote one of the best analyses on Brahmanical Patriarchy - Uma Chakravarti So I'll quote from her only directly - P1 https://www.epw.in/journal/1993/14/special-articles/conceptualising-brahmanical-patriarchy-early-india-gender-caste … #SmashBrahminicalPatriarchy

Does showing clips from Sharknado 3 in class constitute a high or low point in my teaching career? #thefuture #anthropocene #isweartherewasagoodreason

Replying to @slomuto @Thisbysmantle and 2 others

And maybe it’s just me but I tend to think the most effective way to show respect for scholars is not by my personal interactions with them but by citing their intellectual labor, or at the least recognizing it publicly if somehow I lost control over the citations
