Lavoisier is having none of your shit.

Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.

Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject. 
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.

Just remember. There is no such thing as a fake geek girl.
There are only fake geek boys.
Science fiction was invented by a woman.

Specifically a teenage girl. You know, someone who would be a part of the demographic that some of these boys are violently rejecting.

so one time when i was in 8th grade my school went on a camping trip at this camp and at night we all went around the campfire and told stories

and one of the instructors pointed up at the hill where a bunch of deer had gathered. he explained that baby deer make certain noises to call their mothers over. he said if we were really quiet we could hear them

suddenly this huge black guy came out from the forest and yelled YO MAMA WHERE YOU AT

Friend: So how do you think you've changed since high school?
Me: Well I became aware of oppressive power structures and how we are complicit in them and now seek to dismantle them.
Friend: ...
Me: I also think I got hotter.

Warning Signs of an Abusive Relationship.

These are by no means a guide to determining if a relationship is, or will become abusive. They are simply a set of signs that may point to this.
If you are worried about someone, or are in an abusive relationship, then please contact someone as soon as possible to help. There are a few hotlines and websites that may help listed here.

Warning signs that you may be in an abusive relationship:

Emotional Warning Signs:
Feeling afraid of your partner
Avoiding certain topics for fear of angering your partner
Feeling you can’t do anything right in the relationship
Believing that you deserve to be hurt or mistreated
You wonder if you’re the one who is crazy
Feeling emotionally numb or helpless
Behavioral Warning Signs:
Your partner yells at or humiliates you.
Your partner sees you as property or a possession rather than a person
Your partner criticizes you, or puts you down.
You are embarrassed to let your friends and family see the way you are being treated
Your partner blames you for their behavior
Your partner often has an unpredictable temper

Your partner controls where you go, or who you speak to
Your partner keeps you from seeing friends or family
Your partner limits your access to money, means of communication, or transport

Remember, it can still be abuse even if it “doesn’t seem so bad” it’s “only occurred once or twice”, it “stopped when I just agreed or did as I was told” or “they’ve never physically hit me”
Warning signs of someone being in an abusive relationship:
They appear to be scared or anxious to please their partner

They receive frequent, harassing phone calls from their partner
They talk about their partners jealousy/possessiveness.

They often miss work, school or social occasions with little or no notice or explanation
They wear clothing that could conceal bruises or injury i.e long sleeves in summer
They may be restricted from seeing family or friends
They rarely go out in public without their partner.
Have limited access to money, communication or transport
They may have very low self esteem, especially if they used to be confident
They may show personality changes, such as becoming withdrawn or more easily agitated
