Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F

I never understood why it’s an F if he gets more than half out of 100? Unless it’s more than 100. If you get more than half the answers right how is it an F?

You must not be from America. Here, grading is fucked up.

Average American Grading Scale:
A+- 97-100
A - 94-96
A- - 90-93
B- 80-89
C- 70-79
D- 60-69
F- 59 and under

And in some places in America it goes by a 7 point scale, so it’d be
A - 100-93
B - 92-85
C - 84-78
D - 77-70
F - 69 and below

Now you understand why American kid’s feel like there’s no point to school. If you have a 100 question text, and get 79 of them correct, that’s a C. That mean’s your Average Intelligence on this particular subject. And it get’s even worse when you have only like… a 10 question quiz. If you get two wrong? that’s a B. 80 fucking %. Now tell me again why American school’s are easier? 

No wait but whats the grading system in other countries?

UK Grading Scale

100-70: A

69-60: B

59-50: C

49-40: D

Below 40: F

next time you try to tell americans that we’re stupid

i’m gonna remind you

that our “average” is your “A”

Yep I was shocked when I heard this in a different post but a Google search pulls up a ton of sites backing this up.
Shit son I woulda passed College Algebra with an A in the UK. And I spent the end of the semester in perpetual fear that I would fail and have to retake the class.

And basically as an American you’re expected to get 80 or higher. Technically 70s are considered ‘average’ but there is such a level of pressure to get a B or higher, that Cs have become equal to Ds. Basically anything under 60 you might as well gotten a 0, and anything between 60-80 is considered practically failing. So basically schools have to be designed to make sure majority of students are getting 80s or higher on specific topics, which means you’re spending all your time going over a few choice facts a billion times and there is very little room to teach anything else. Which explains why American schools are of such low quality. The insane demand on the students ends up wrecking their education. Not only do you not have time to teach them anything, but they end up hating learning. Even outside of school your life is dedicated to memorizing these few dumb facts because your homework ends up taking hours of your time. A teacher from one subject says they expect you to spend 2 hours every night on their homework. And if you’re studying 5 subjects and they all demand that 2 hours? Good fucking luck, because if you don’t have straight all 80s or higher you’re not getting into a good college and college degrees have somehow become the minimum requirement for getting jobs.

I spent most of my junior year of high school in a state of constant panic that I was going to get a C in Honors Physics much less fail the class. If I got a C on my report card, I was grounded until the next one. I lost count of the times I’d wake up at five in the morning to take the early bus to go in for zero hour before school actually started for the day

File this under the exact reason so many Americans detest going to school.

Some Genderqueer Identities

doctorgaylord:

Agender: Someone who has no gender. They are genderless.

Aliagender: Someone who defines their gender as ‘other’ or apart from existing genders.

Androgyne: Someone who identifies as androgynous, gender-wise.

Androgynous: A style of clothing or appearance, androgyny is also a type of genderqueer, the state of being inbetween man and woman, or both man and woman.

Bigender: Someone who has two genders, typically man and woman (but not necessarily). They either identify as both, or that they move between the two.

Boi: Stemming from the Butch and Femme Lesbian communities, as lesbian becomes a word meaning more than ‘gay woman’ people who fit better into labels such as ‘dyke’ and ‘queer’ - feminine masculinity, perhaps, or masculine femininity, which makes better sense - are identifying as bois, although the definition is vague.

Demiboy: Someone who feels partly a boy, and partly something else, without defining that other part.

Demigirl: Someone who feels partly a girl, and partly something else, without defining that other part.

Enby (or NB): Short for Non-Binary, someone who feels that their gender is simply non-binary.

Genderfluid (or fluid): Someone who is genderfluid moves between genders; their gender is not something that they or anyone can pin down and define.

Genderfuck (or genderf*ck): Someone who is a genderfuck purposefully messes with people concepts of gender, literally, they fuck gender.

Genderqueer: An umbrella term for all genders other than man and woman, or someone who simply identifies as another gender.

Gender Variant: Someone who feels that their gender is varied, either in a fluid or static way.

Intergender: Someone who feels that their gender is in between two other, ‘full’ genders, such as an androgyne feeling that theit gender falls between man and woman. Often used by intersex people.

Neutrois: As transsexual is to transgender, neutrois is the sex equivalent of agender; someone who is neutrois would prefer (and perhaps transitions to) a body without physical signifiers of sex/gender.

Non-Binary: An umbrella term for all genders completely outside of the man/woman binary, or someone who simply identifies as outside of the gender binary.

Polygender: Someone who has more than one gender, either identifying as more than one gender at once, or moving between genders.

Situational Genderfluid (or situational fluid): Someone who is situationally genderfluid moves between genders based on their enviroment. As a sub-section of genderfluid, it implies a pattern.

Third gender: Not the best terminology, as this phrase was used by Colonialists to other and pathologise traditional genders and gender roles. Unlike androgynous and agender, some people consider themselves to be a third gender, one outside the concepts of masculine and feminine, although this is hard to pinpoint, as different people experience this feeling differently.

Trigender: Someone who has three genders, either at once or moving between them.

Please help me include as many identities that come under genderqueer as possible!

I couldn’t figure out how to reblog this or if it was rebloggable from http://genderqueeries.tumblr.com/ but I thought it was a fantastic list when I found it and I actually didn’t know that half these where identities! It actually helped me out personally and I thought I’d share the knowledge.

Please reblog if you wouldn’t act differently around a friend if they came out as bisexual, gay, lesbian, asexual, pansexual, polysexual, or admitted to being trans, agender, genderfluid, or bigender.
