YES THANK YOU.

yes

We cuddle for like 15 minutes.  Then its the sleeping version of wrestlemania in our bed

We cuddle a decent amount…. But then again we have our toddler in the bed most of the night taking up one side of the bed. So cuddling is at least as much about making the most of the room we have as it is about yay cuddling. Cuddling all night is great and cute and all…. But not terribly realistic.

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

You can thank feminists for your right to express your ignorant, trite opinions on the internet, too, anti-feminist women.  Give feminists a round of applause because now you can spew your thoughtlessness wherever you want. Freely.

You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment.  People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously.  Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life.  Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day!  So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!!  Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions.  Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it.  With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!

We are right here!!

We went to check out the new library and got to have story time and make crafts!

False rape accusations are an anomaly.

True rape accusations are a norm.

You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.

Re-blog now, read later.

"Because 1 in 33 men will be raped in his lifetime, men are 82,000x more likely to be raped than falsely accused of rape. It seems many of us would do well to pay more attention to how rape culture affects us all than be paranoid about false accusers.”

In science class, talking about certain properties of substances and what a "Property" is. My science teacher asks me to stand up and ask the class for some of my properties. (FYI I am female and fully identify as such, but this was still a cool thing to say on my teacher's behalf)
first kid: red hair!
teacher: (immediately nods and writes "red hair" on board) yup, that is one of alex's properties, sure.
another kid: brown eyes!
teacher: (nods and writes on board)
yet another kid: freckles
teacher: all great answers, (writes on board) anything else?
Lets call him Bob: Shes a girl
Teacher: (Pauses, looks at me, then back at the kid) Well it's not my place to confirm that, besides, you have no idea whether Alex is a girl or not.
Bob: Well she's got boobs
Teacher: (Doesnt even get mad at the smartassish response, just nods calmly) Yes, now, having boobs is a property. Gender on the other hand is much less physical, and a lot more mental. Just because she has body parts that are recognized generally on females, does not mean that she's female herself. So why don't we say, instead of "she's a girl" we'll just say she has boobs
Teacher: (writes on board "Alex has boobs")

punklagertha:

i like how cis people act like it would be the worst thing in the world not to assume people’s genders i mean we don’t assume people’s names what if you just met someone and you were like “hey emily” and they were like “thats not my name its megan” and you were like “oh well how was i supposed to know. you look like an emily to me. i guess i can try to call you megan but its gonna be hard because i just see you as such an emily”

On a happier note…. Aria is super excited to learn about hair drying techniques.

So fucking sick of everyone

How in the hell can someone live on this earth until the age of adulthood and still be so immature as to be threatened by a 2 year old.?!? Like really, you’re supposed to be getting on to be a grown man and you’re gonna bully a toddler because you’re jealous because you’re not the family baby anymore?
I can’t even leave the room to make Aria lunch without her coming and crying because he turned off her movie(not even to use it for himself. Just to turn it off because he feels entitled to make rules about when it is and isn’t worth having something on) because she had stepped out of the room to ask for her food.
I’m so fucking mad. Like how damn petty do you have to be to pick on a 2 year old?

“You can’t complain when other people have it worse” is a lie that people in power tell because it sets people in bad circumstances up in a competition. It means when we share our stories, we are always quietly fighting for the prize of being the worst off, and getting a tiny scrap of sympathy.

That keeps us from getting together and asking, why are our circumstances so bad and how can we make them better? It means only one person gets to complain and that person does it alone. As opposed to people working in concert to change their lives, to give each other strength and advice and encouragement.
