nothing pisses me off more than when i’m showing one of my favourite movies to someone and all they do is look at their phone and miss all the important parts
when you’ve been swimming and water is in your ear
"what will your kids think of that tattoo?"
my kids aren’t going to give 2 shits because i’m not going to raise them to be a judgmental asshole like yours did
i’m just going to reblog this over and over again until i give myself carpal tunnel
If you think about it Ursula was actually really nice because she only promised Ariel legs, and she gave her really nice legs that matched her body type and skin color when she could have just as easily given her goat legs
do you ever get so disgusted with yourself, like you can not believe how stupid and thoughtless you are and it’s so frustrating because you keep telling yourself that you’ll do better next time but then next time rolls around and the same thing keeps happening and you end up in this pattern of mediocrity.
sigh okay let me break this down for you.
as a parent, it is your duty to give your child the tools for a happy, successful life. No matter what kind of child you have. That doesn’t mean you aren’t allowed to be heterosexual, it just means that you shouldn’t assume that they are. Stop pushing heterosexual as default (note: this paper incorrectly defines queerness to include some heterosexuals, but it provides a good explanation of the problems with heteronormativity in childhood development that i was having trouble finding). Your kid is not born with a gender, a doctor assigns one to them arbitrarily based on genitals and nothing else. If you confine a child to modern roles of gender and sexuality, you are limiting their whole world.
additionally, lots of people “give a fuck” if a person is LGBT. They will face opposition and violence, and it is your job as a parent not only to prepare them to deal with this evil, but to prepare any cis-hetero children you may have to stop the violence and oppression faced by LGBT people. Do not assume your children are heterosexual. Provide them with media that represents all kinds of people and families. People will give a fuck, and it is your duty to protect them.
Y’know people say shit about social media along the lines of ‘OMG no one cares what anyone had for breakfast’ and like.
I do? I care. I’m pretty sure a lot of people care. I want to hear that the people I care about are having delicious breakfasts or saw something odd at work or flirted with a cute barista. Or just any little thoughts they have that they feel are worth sharing.
I’ve always kind of assumed that’s how you’re supposed to feel about your friends.
