1. Fine Arts
I’m a current major in #9, soon to be adding a dual in #3. Fuck that. Also, anthro majors: you don’t make a ton of money right out of school because most undergrads go right on to grad school. Anthro also requires a lot of working during the degree-getting process. For instance next summer I’m most likely going to St. Thomas or Southeast Asia for 6 weeks. That’s right, class credit for going to the carribbean to dig up cool shit and/or learn about people. Can’t beat that.
Hollaaaa at Architecture being #5! Fuck that major.
Aw graphic art and design. You number four skank.
Number 2 up in the hizzy!
So anyone notice that these are “feminine” occupations that require the feminine skills of creativity, communication and understanding? OF FUCKING COURSE MALE-ORIENTED “SCIENCE” IS GOING TO LABEL THEM USELESS.
Don’t fucking tell me that the arts are useless. In such a visual, media-oriented society, design, creativity, and ART are everywhere. When you go home at night, you don’t read the latest science journals about finding the largest prime number, YOU WATCH FUCKING TV, WHICH IS MADE BY WRITERS, ACTORS, DIRECTORS, AND ARTISTS. Seriously. do. not. fucking. TELL ME that the arts are unimportant. Just because it’s not in a museum or a literary journal does not mean it’s not art.
Reblogging from my personal blog just because I think it’s an important message to get out: if anyone ever tells you that art and creativity are unimportant, it’s a fucking lie. Never ever EVER feel ashamed or less-than for pursuing what you love and what you’re good at. Honestly, where would OMG that Dress and OMG that Artifact be without creative people following their passion?
I AM A PROUD FEMINIST WOMAN, AND I FAILED REMEDIAL MATH SEVERAL TIMES. I AM FOLLOWING MY PASSION AS A WRITER BECAUSE IT IS NOT USELESS AND UNIMPORTANT, AND I WOULDN’T DO ANYTHING ELSE.
Solia pensar esto. And then I tried to enter the labor market.
Es que no se trata de ver su utilidad sólo por el área del dinero. Sí, es más difícil entrar al mercado laboral y sí, es difícil llegar a un nivel de vida bien remunerado cuando tienes alguna de estas especialidades. Pero no todo debería a limitarse a la utilidad ‘práctica’ de las cosas, que es lo que las ciencias duras suelen intentar establecer.
