One year, I taught this (Sociological theory) class and only used female writers. The journals were written by women, the textbook was written by females. Do you know what kind of responses I got on my student evaluations that year? {…} That I was biased, that I was only looking from one point of view… that I was basically a man eater. That’s the kind of things I’d get from the students… The semester before, I used only male writers. Do you think I got any kind of feedback like that then?

"Not a single word."

Tech alert!Here’s a free app for iPhones and Androids that can automatically call 911 for you in the case of a late night assault— without any dialing, talking, or fumbling with the phone.
From the app store:SafeTrek enables citizens to be proactive in their safety by bridging the gap between doing nothing and calling 911 in an unsafe situation. By holding down the SafeTrek safe button, a user is able to passively connect to police. If nothing unexpected happens, a user simply inputs their unique 4-digit pin to cancel an alert from being sent (to police). If a situation takes a turn for the worse, a user simply releases the safe button without typing in their pin number and is connected to police.
