You can read all about it HERE, and it’s as awesome as it looks and sounds.
From the article:Made With Code is a new Google initiative to motivate future female programmers. Only 18% of computer science degrees are earned by women, and Google is spending $50 million over the next three years to change those numbers.
More than 150 high school girls turned out for the event, including local chapters of the Girl Scouts of the USA, Black Girls Code and Girls Who Code. Kaling, a writer and actress, emceed the premiere, which brought in Google X Vice President Megan Smith, Clinton Foundation Vice Chair Chelsea Clinton, iLuminate creator Miral Kotb, Pixar Director of Photography Danielle Feinberg and UNICEF Innovation cofounder Erica Kochi.
Yo., I was at this event and I was SO freaking impressed with the message of the program. Peep this:
Made With Code’s approach is based on Google’s own research into the best ways to encourage girls’ participation in computer science. Academic exposure is just part. It’s also important for girls to get encouragement from family and peers, to understand that a love of puzzles and problem solving easily translates to computer science skills, and to know that a computer science degree won’t limit them to only technical jobs. That last point was emphasized over and over by the speakers and the demos at the event.
The demo area was filled with examples of code, ranging from making 3D-printed bracelets to clothes and tech-infused accessories to games and computer animation. While there was an emphasis on interests that can be classified as “girl stuff,” such as fashion, this never came off as patronizing. The girls got the message that code is an integral part of the arts as well as business and architecture and any other career they may want to pursue. And they got the message that whatever inspired them or whatever they were passionate about was valid.
There were so many young black girls and other POC at the event I wanted to cry and go up to all of them saying “YOU’RE THE FUTURE! GET IT, GET IT, GET IT!” but that would have been weird so I did not.
Oh, and! They all went home with Nexus 7s and Chromebooks.
Oh shit I saw the sponsored post on my dash earlier and didn’t know what it was, but this is so, so awesome. WAY TO GO, GOOGLE!
A sense of humor can make everything better. Sex isn’t like it is in the movies or in porn. There will be strange and weird and awkward sounds, there might be a silly interruption like the cat or a kid… you might knock heads or trip getting undressed. Sex is funny, foreplay is funny and sometimes you need to just laugh. It will keep things from getting awkward! If you take sex too seriously you aren’t truly enjoying it!
Not to mention a sense of humor can be really sexy no matter what your gender identity is!
this comic is literally my favorite thing on tumblr.
i’ve always said if you can’t laugh with the person you’re having sex with while you’re having sex with them you shouldn’t be having sex with them.
My husband once walked up behind me while i was sitting in the living room just watching t.v…and he put his penis on my shoulder and said “hello..”
THIS WAS HIS SEDUCTION.
THIS WAS HIS IDEA OF HOW TO GET ME INTO BED.
it worked, but not before I laughed for days.
For that last comment.
I always had a ton of weird funky condoms at my place because I volunteered with Planned Parenthood and did a lot of sex education and sex positive work. I literally had no less than like thirty different types of condoms at a time. So when it came time to grabbing a condom it was a grab bag of WHO KNOWS what you’ll end up with.
Long story short, my boyfriend grabs one, puts it on, heat of the moment type thing, a some point we both look down and see it’s an ELECTRIC GREEN condom. Dead pan he looks me straight in the eye and in his best impression goes “HEY HO. KERMIT DEE FROG HERE.” And I COMPLETELY LOST IT.
On a completely different occasion I said “don’t stop” and he sang ALL of Don’t Stop Believing. All of it. All of it. Right then and there. Without stopping.
Can I add the story about how me and one of my partners had a very enthralling discussion about deserts while I was on top of him?
Or the time my partner’s friends blasted “Eye of the Tiger” through the door and we rocked it out to the beat while quoting the movie?
I was with this girl during a trip out to Washington, we’d hung out a few times, and hit it off really well. So we got together one afternoon. Her dorm-mate came home, saw the “Do Not Disturb” sock on her bedroom door and called out “Thrusters to full!”
Not missing a beat the girl and I yelled back “We’re giving it all we’ve got, Captain!” and her roommate started fucking dying outside the door.
Probably should have proposed right on the spot, but whatever.
It got better.
spn + human error

Does anybody ever think about how badass Madam Pomfrey is?
She never asks questions. Remember the time Hermione turned into a cat? She made sure no one saw her. She regrew a whole arm’s worth of bones in one night. She can mend bones in a second. She even kicks out Dumbledore on some occasions. Just think about how many students get injured in Hogwarts every year and she just fixes them back up like new.
We all just need to take a second and thank Madam Pomfrey.
i want to be rebellious but i dont want to get in trouble
Have you ever heard anyone say ‘easier done than said’ ?
So, one day my coworker said “is anything easier done than said” and I let him pontificate about this for a while and then I said to him, “silence” and that blew his mind.
NO I HAVE NOT HAD ENOUGH COFFEE TO CONTEMPLATE YOUR PHILOSOPHICAL SHIT TUMBLR STOP THAT
Dat some deep shit
Sometimes CAH hits too close to home.
