Tenured Radical Claire Potter wrote a post on the Chronicle of Higher Education blog recognizing librarians, especially radical librarians on the occasion of National Library Workers Day. She encourages her faculty colleagues to kiss us. Yay! I

As an Acquisitions librarian in an Academic library, I just want enough of a materials budget to be able to buy the shit that the professors require their students to read. Or for the professors to check if we have that stuff before assigning it.

Gordon Ramsay doesn’t care about your gender, race, or creed. All he cares about is that you can cook.

The contestant, Christine, is blind, and he lets her know exactly what he thinks of her dish.

OMG I was preparing myself to be enraged by him making some horrible comment but now I’m crying in Starbucks GOD DAMMIT

Christ I am not okay with these fEELINGS


That’s so cute I wanna cry

Is there a Gordon Ramsay fan base on this site??? And where can i join???

Spoilers, she won. Her cookbook is on sale now.

Also, this is the very first apple pie she ever made.

Also, can we please take notice OF HOW HE DESCRIBES IT FOR HER? Ramsay was extremely conscious during the entire season that she would require different tactics than the other contestants; this was not the only time he became her eyes, nor the only time he did things like that scrape of the knife so she could actually have a sense of her work.

And if you really want to bawl like a baby? During final four or final three, I forget which, the remaining contestants got photos from home. Christine’s husband sent their wedding photo—which she had never seen. Ramsay paused before starting the challenge to describe to her not only her husband—the look of love and joy on his face—but also herself as a bride, so she could see in her mind how the two of them looked together on their wedding day.

It was extremely obvious nobody had ever thought to do that before.

This man should be a fucking icon not just for his cooking, but for how he treats those who are different. During the same season he asked a handsome young man, making conversation during auditions, if he had a girlfriend. The man responded that he was gay. Ramsay, without missing a beat: “I’m sorry. Have you got a boyfriend, then?” No drama, no “oh my GOSH! You’re GAY? TOKEN CHARACTER :DDDD” just a very quick, simple whoops-my-mistake and the corrected inquiry. And then he never brought it up again! It was just a thing he learned, getting to know a contestant.

Yes, he can be harsh on MasterChef and downright cruel on Hell’s Kitchen (although if you were a sous chef and you served me raw pork that was not pork tartare, I’d scream too). But he’s not an ogre; he’s a polite man with a gigantic heart who simply happens to take no shit from those who should know better.

I really love Gordon Ramsay and his willingness to learn from others

You see how nasty he gets on Kitchen Nightmares but he goes into another chef’a kitchen and lets them treat him like shit when they’re teaching him

He once tried to learn how to make hand pulled noodles from a Chinese chef and he didn’t patronize or condescend just treated him with total respect and let the man call him an idiot when he failed and took it all with a great sense of humor

I follow his twitter and he’s just so funny and nice and I LOVE HIM OK

Always been in love with Gordan Ramsey…
