The long-awaited follow up to the immortal Go the F**k to Sleep book has finally arrived. Shipping just in time for the holidays, the book will make a great gift for your spouse since nothing at this stage in your life hits closer than home than the daily attempts to get your kid to eat something that generally resembles a meal. While it won’t help you solve any problems with your child’s stellar eating habits, at least you can share a laugh knowing that you’re not the only one doing daily battle at the dinner table.

A real comment I received on an essay shout out to my professor for proving academics, too, can be fuckboys
Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teen who was attacked by Taliban militants for promoting education for girls, will share the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize with Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian campaigner against exploitation of children.
The Norwegian Nobel Committee says on Nobelprize.org:
"Showing great personal courage, Kailash Satyarthi, maintaining Gandhi’s tradition, has headed various forms of protests and demonstrations, all peaceful, focusing on the grave exploitation of children for financial gain. He has also contributed to the development of important international conventions on children’s rights.
"Despite her youth, Malala Yousafzai has already fought for several years for the right of girls to education, and has shown by example that children and young people, too, can contribute to improving their own situations. This she has done under the most dangerous circumstances. Through her heroic struggle she has become a leading spokesperson for girls’ rights to education."

"One of the most striking features of The Luminous Heart of Jonah S. is Nahai’s presentation of women—they not only tend to overshadow their male counterparts, but are also in ruthless competition with one another, their threats against each other as emotionally malicious as they are violent. They are, in other words, human. Nahai grew up surrounded by disempowered women, whose stories often seemed like their only weapons, and her writing of strong female characters is a way to honor this, to not allow these voices to fall into the shadows of obscurity.” (via Gina B.
