omg i would *love* if you were to expand on school stuff for trans!peter like ,,, michelle being supportive ,, the whole "penis parker" thing ,,
-Peter came out pretty young but he was in middle school
-he didn’t want to go through the hassle of changing everything and making everyone adjust
-so he waited until high school to do all the legal name changing
-midtown isn’t actually his zoned school
-it’s specialized for science and technology so it takes applications and he got in
-meaning most people from his middle school aren’t actually going to high school with him
-making his transition a lot smoother
-the only people going to midtown with him was Ned and a few others
-one of them being Flash Thompson
-Peter was always really smart but his middle school didn’t have a decathlon or anything like that
-so he was never on flash’s radar except for in Robotics Club
-which wasn’t really competitive except for against other schools so flash never had a reason to bully him
-maybe a snide remark here or there about girls in STEM but nothing really personal
-then in 9th grade when Peter shows up to academic decathlon try outs his hair is a bit shorter but may and Ben haven’t put him in T yet because it’s expensive
-flash thinks he looks familiar but doesn’t realize until the teacher says “parker”
-and flash is like ??? Parker? Parker’s a girl
-so after practice flash goes up to Peter and he’s like “so parker thinks she’s a boy now? Is it because you know girls can’t do math and science?”
-“well, first of all, I am a dude. Second of all,
who here is the alternate?”
-Peter is super sassy because he had a good day and flash doesn’t scare him
-and flash is like really angry now Bc his ego is bruised
-and he’s like “well, KAREN, ” and spouts some random rich kid shit
-and peters actually hella hurt but he does home
-may comforts him but it’s hard
-she says they should be able to save up for t shots in 9-12 months
-so his mood is a lot better
-the next day flash corners him and uses his deadname again
-this time Ned is with him and loudly calls him Eugene before he can even finish saying it
-Ned straight up yells it the third time flash tries
-Peter gets really overwhelmed so he’s glad Ned’s there with him
-because flash could easily pin peter in like 10 seconds
-the next day flash shouts across the cafeteria “hey penis parker!” And other offensive things related to him being trans
-Peter actually almost calls May to let him come home early
-he’s humiliated because all of flash’s little friends laughed and made it a big deal
-so not only do flash and his friends know but now so does roughly ¼ of the student body and more
because word will get around
-Ned comforts him through a panic attack
-nobody except flash and his friends give him shit for it though
-most people just call him Parker anyway and none of his teachers fuck up
-ned tells him to report flash but Peter knows that’ll just cause problems
-Flash harasses Peter at decathlon meetings but it’s usually before or after
-mostly because his team mates will usually defend him
-thankfully he doesn’t really have any classes or interactions with flash all of 9th grade other than lunch but flash makes use of his time
-the last few months of 9th grade Peter starts taking T
-then he gets bit by the spider which amplifies effects of T and gives him crazy muscles
-then the whole tony stark thing at the beginning of 10th grade
-tony started paying for Peter’s testosterone (creating a new kind to work with his DNA), binders, and eventually surgery if he ever wants it
-that whole year flash calls him “penis parker” and he has gym with Peter now
-meaning Peter uses the locker room with him
-or well he used to
-now he just changes in the bathroom because one time his clothes straight up got stolen and he doesn’t need that now
-Although it’s ok because MJ refuses to call flash anything but “Eugene” and “Asshat”
-And Ned is lowkey ready to roast flash anytime anywhere
-his status as “alternate” is really helpful
-he has two awesome friends though and tony once made an appearance picking Peter up from school so nobody gives him shit about the internship anymore so all in all he’s having a pretty good time compared to 9th grade
Made the cutest titrations today and the big divinity of chemistry was probably angry at me cause had terrible data in the first one (had to standardize edta). Gladly the second one went better. I’m so tired (!!) had 4 hours of analytical chem lectures and 4 hours of analytical chem lab…all I wanna do is sleep forever. Bye.
This picture is blurry and from a while ago but it was taken by a photographer that was hired to take pictures of some of the science labs at my college. That day we were measuring the currents and water levels in the creek on my campus.
I was the only girl in my class, so the photographer payed extra attention to try to get me into all of the photos he was taking of the testing. This gave me mixed emotions, partially it inspired me to work harder to be able to show that girls can do science, and can be successful in that field, but on the other hand it kind of put me down, science has always been kind of run by men and i’m not really sure why. We, as women, are capable of being just as knowledgeable and creative and able to do the things needed for this profession, and so it kind of hit me that i am one of few girls at my school in the environmental science major.
We need more girls learning science. For some reason when looking at two scientists, one man and one women, with the same qualifications, the man is most often chosen for the job. This is such a problem and part of it is because there aren’t enough women in the field to show men that we are just as capable of creating and testing, and experimenting! Stop raising girls showing them how to cook and clean, don’t buy them presents only consisting of barbies and princesses. Give them try at home science kits, and building kits, teach them not just to collect flowers to put in a vase on a table, but teach them also what these plants can do, and how this earth works. Don’t raise people to think that girls aren’t capable of science, because my gosh, we so are!
Some cosplay makeup that I did on the weekend! It was my first time doing anything like this before and I’m quite proud of myself :) It was good practice, and now I have a better idea about what I need to do and what I need to purchase. This was to be a rendition of Tali Vas Normandy from Mass Effect! Looking forward to practicing some more!!
“And this is Jane Foster, my intern for the summer.”
“Bit of a looker, isn’t she?” chortled Dr Richards. “Selvig, you old dog!”
Jane flushed, pasting a smile on. “Please to meet you,” she lied. “Your work on astrophysics is among the top in the field,” she added more truthfully. She’d based several projects on his research and had been so excited to finally meet him in person.
“Always nice to meet a fan,” he smiled. “Jean, wasn’t it?”

In 2015, being a girl can still be a hurdle, but you can choose to do something other than jumping over it. No one can stop you from walking around it. No one has ever stopped me from knocking it down every single time someone tries to stand it back up in front of me. I’ve got places to go, and they’re more important than a misogynistic child trying to make me play some game.
An excerpt of something I started writing today (January 16, 2015) that was originally supposed to be a 30-60 second speech I was writing for my English class about who I am and what I believe, that turned into a messy 2-page feminist rant with all sorts of symbolism that I didn’t know where I was going with. I liked pieces of it, though, so here’s one.
Author’s note: All of these are my own facts. They are (probably) not canon.
- As a child, she always was raising her hand to ask or answer questions in class. She would get mad when the teacher ignored her.
- In high school, she got even with a boy who told her that “girls can’t do science” by getting top marks in all the science-related classes she took, and “accidentally” spilling hot coffee on him.
- When injured on an away mission, she started to knit to keep herself occupied. After multiple botched attempts, including a three fingered mitten, a hat with no top, and a teeny-weeny sock, she started to get the hang of it. Although, she was very proud of her teeny-weeny sock.
- On her first long-term assignment, she left the entire crew gifts on Christmas. This is a tradition she upholds to this day.
- She adores young children. She loves to see their innate curiosity and desire to learn new things.
- She once received a poem on Valentine’s Day from an anonymous person. She still hasn’t figured out which Starfleet officer was poetic enough to call her eyes, “Blue like the icy depths of the Arctic Ocean, bright like the light that reflects off of a fish’s silvery scales”.
- She cannot sing. End of story.
- She is one of the very few people who gets along with Admiral Nechayev. She should be awarded a medal for this.
- She once lectured the entire Voyager crew for half an hour straight on cultural appropriation. Chakotay was pleased.
- Her favourite Shakespeare play is Much Ado About Nothing.
- She didn’t say anything when Harry called her “mom” by accident.
- She didn’t say anything when Tom called her “mom” by accident.
- Back on Earth, there’s a bakery near her home that makes these incredible coconut-toffee clusters covered in chocolate. She used to make weekly pilgrimages to it, and still complains that the replicators don’t make it the same.
- She nearly burned down the mess hall while attempting to fix herself a midnight snack.
- She plans to enjoy the things she took for granted when she gets back home to Earth.
