I swear, whatever forces are at work were testing me today. Almost everyone in that store had a baby with them. Babies. Everywhere. Crying, laughing, being so cute and lovable. Why me?
I’d like to shoot myself sometimes. I stumbled on a blog by a fat feminist and didn’t immediately leave. Never go to a blog by a fat feminist and not immediately leave. It’s not good for your health and sanity.
you know america is spoiled when people claim to be oppressed for being fat
Instead of working on my Mother’s Day gift or the blanket I started two weeks ago, I’ve decided to start a brand new project and learn how to filet crochet. That’s why I never get anything done. I get bored with things too easily.
I really love how a woman can have a ten mile long list of what she wants from a man, but let a man dare say he wants his woman to cook and all hell breaks loose.
I think I’m going to put an ad in the paper:
Looking for a job as a wife.
New, never been used.
Adores children. Already have children? That’s fine, but must be willing to have tons more.
Won’t hold down a paying job, but will do all the cooking, cleaning, childcare, and other domestic things.
Prefers older men (10-15 years) but a younger man with the right mind will do.
Warning: Lifetime commitment. Hard to get rid of. Will get very attached to whomever will have her.
That’s fine, but I don’t think embarrassing them is the right way to go about it. Some children are more excitable than others. They shouldn’t be chastised for that.
Could you be a little more specific? I don’t know what message you’re talking about.
Really? I’ve never heard that haha. Thank you! I hope we have many pets too! They”ll have other purposes than just being companions though.
I like cats. I really like all animals, I just prefer dogs.
I think that’s very demoralizing. I understand the need to be respectful, but I don’t know. If a child is interested enough and excited enough in what’s he’s learning to give an answer why damper that because he didn’t answer it the right way? “Yes, you have the right answer, but that doesn’t matter because you didn’t answer it the way I want you to.”
If there’s one thing my children learn it will be manners. They will say ma’am and sir and please and thank you. I don’t like rude youngins. My little cousins are horribly rude and I want to smack them around a few times. I do not want my children like that.
Everything is female oppression! This Winter was so long and cold because nature wanted to keep women oppressed and covered up. It’s the truth. Patriarchy told me.
Something that annoys me is people in the school system, teachers, principals, school boards..etc will say each child learns differently, but they think it’s a good idea to group 20-30 of them together in one room to be taught by one person, in one way. And those children that can’t learn that way, the ones that fall behind the rest, just need extra help. We’ll make them feel inadequate and embarrassed instead of changing the system.
They don’t need extra help. They need to be taught according to their individual needs in the first place. They need to learn the way that’s best for them from the start.
