Messed Up

Student #1 (white, male, reading aloud from a book he's writing about grizzly bears): "In the springtime, James the grizzly found a mate. After the mating season was over, he left the female and returned to living on his own, as all grizzlies do."

Student #2 (black, female, working on something completely unrelated and absentmindedly listening to Student #1): That is MESSED UP. I mean, I get that they're animals and all. But in the people world, that is MESSED UP.

Me (inside my head): Shit. That's exactly what just happened to me. I am like a female grizzly bear.

You are so right, Student #2. It IS messed up. Thanks for the reminder.
