I know girls who spill I’m sorry’s from their mouths like they pump blood
to their veins.
Sometimes, I am one.
I know girls who apologize for asking
to go to the bathroom in class,
who apologize for everything
because they feel like they are taking
up more than their fair share of space
on this planet.
Everything starts with an I’m sorry
and ends with one too,
constant bookends that we don’t
even notice anymore.
We delete her apology the way we
delete likes and ums from speech.
I know girls with ten times more apologies
than misdemeanors
and I wonder how often they hear
It’s okay.
You’re more than okay.

best thing i learned working with and learning about kids: when they do shit like this, especially to something they themselves use and enjoy, leave it there for as long as possible. let them return to the fun thing over and over again so that it sinks in that the thing they did was wrong, they ruined something, and now they can’t have fun because of it and they should never do it again. it teaches them consequence of action and cautiousness.

i did this with a 3-year-old kid i babysat who filled his playstation with peanut butter before i got there, just every time he went back to it and asked why it’s not working, i opened it and pointed to the peanut butter stains and said “you did that” and he says “yeah”, “will it work like that?” “…no”, and when he got it and promised to never put anything but games into a game machine again, his parents bought another and he kept his promise. it works, even at that age.

this was a long and unnecessary rant but so many times i’ve seen parents IMMEDIATELY replace their kids’ toys/electronics that they destroy over and over again and i’m just like NO THEY’RE NOT LEARNING ANYTHING THAT WAY 

they also don’t learn from being thrown into fires

yeah but they’re quieter that way

i feel like being a woman is always an adventure in being told you’re “too much” of something you’re always too loud, too heavy, too opinionated, too confident, too vain, too insecure and you take up too much fucking space

Q
Why can't men work for men's rights? Why is it wrong? Of course, if they say things a long the lines of "you're not raped. you were drunk" or "women are narcissistic" and etc., they have a stick up their butt. But not all men are evil and not all men are a-holes, just like not all bacteria is pathogenic.

I wouldn’t have an issue with MRA’s if they actually fought for the things they claim to care about. The problem is, they aren’t looking to help male rape victims, they aren’t looking to help male homelessness, they’re not setting up support systems to help men navigate the courts, they don’t give a single gram of fuck about actually helping the causes they claim to care for so much. All they really give a shit about is harassing women and feminists and spewing their hatred towards us to the point where WE ACTUALLY HAVE THREATS SENT OUR WAY.

It happened to me: 

http://wehuntedthemammoth.com/2013/04/15/canadian-feminist-activist-receives-death-threats-and-other-abuse-after-being-targeted-by-mens-rights-activists/

It’s currently happening to Anita Sarkeesian of Feminist Frequency:

https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/features/anita-sarkeesian-gamergate-interview-20141017

And don’t forget these massacres:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89cole_Polytechnique_massacre

If that’s not enough, MRA’s have LOOOVE for Marc Lepine from the Montreal Massacre:

http://o.canada.com/news/the-bizarre-love-for-marc-lepine-among-mens-rights-groups

I’m mean, I’m not down to clown with anyone receiving death threats, but the thing I’m curious about doesn’t really regard that. The issue I’m confused with is, well, you didn’t really seem to mind at all when that alarm was pulled…

who fucking cares? what is your fucking point?? I didn’t know who pulled it (still dont) nor why cuz I wasn’t expecting it. It wasn’t until later that I realized someone must have done it to shut the mra event down.

And when you point this out they call you an “ignorant, heartless cunt” for not knowing about the one guy in 1996 who started a shelter that failed.

you know how much pressure there is on girls to be good at every video game they play, because if they fuck up once there’s going to be a heck of a lot of people saying how girls suck and how they shouldn’t play video games
