Protip: This is a really bad question to ask when visiting the National Mall. We have 8 buildings surrounding the Mall, and a total of 19 museums, 9 research centers and the National Zoo. A S.H.I.E.L.D agent should know better! 

(We think she means the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in this case.)

It is illegal for women to go topless in most cities, yet you can buy a magazine of a woman without her top on at any 7-11 store. So, you can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America.

Violet Rose (via c-icatrix)

This is one of my favorite quotes about sexualization/objectification vs autonomy of female bodies bc it’s so succinct

Amtrak’s mobile writers’ residencies sound beneficial for trains and literature at once—our two favorites! And Alexander Chee, who first planted the idea with Jessica Gross and thus Amtrak, is running the playlist for our NYC fundraising gala The Common in the (Eternal) City on May 21. Maybe some tunes for Italian train travel? We’ll see you there!
