I took this picture of Oli and myself today at the pool. After we got done swimming, we were walking home and had to pass by a group of cheerleaders that were practicing on my uni’s campus. One of the cheerleaders looked at Oliver and said, “She’s so cute!” With a smile on my face, I ruffled Oli’s hair and said, “HE.” as we continued walking past her. Immediately the girl winced, turned to her friend, and said, “Oh my god, she’s turning him gay..”
I am not turning my son gay by allowing him to express himself by wearing a floral dress. I’m so sick of people making comments that I’m altering my son’s sexual orientation or his gender identity because he’s wearing a dress. IT’S A DRESS. IT IS LITERALLY CLOTHING. If he is gay, that’s cool, I’ll accept him no matter what, and if he decides at any point he’s anything but a boy, I’ll still accept him (er, them/her). But allowing him to pick out his own clothes and taking him clothes shopping with me so he can pick out what he likes is not going to have ANY affect on his orientation/identity. The only concern I have about him wearing a dress is when he pulls it up to show me how big his tummy is in public, because I don’t want him showing a bunch of strangers his underwear.
If he was a little girl wearing a pair of shorts or a t-shirt with a dump truck on it, no one would say anything, because dressing as a boy is different. People see wearing a dress as a negative thing when you’re a boy, they say he’ll turn gay and that I’m a bad mom and I’m trying to turn him into a girl. But the bottom line is that him wearing a dress has nothing to do with being a boy or his orientation. If he’s gay, he’s gay. He’s too young to slap a sexuality on him at 3 and a half, and that’s not something I’m particularly worried about, because at this age he treats everybody the same and doesn’t have comprehension of what sexual/romantic attraction is. Wearing a dress has nothing to do with that.
He is a boy. He plays with dump trucks, rolls around in dirt, growls at everyone, and pretends to fart for fun. He also paints his nails, is obsessed with Sailor Moon, refers to himself as Princess Oliver, and yes, wears dresses. He is a boy.

that last part. amen to all of this though

vagina’s are able to stretch wide enough to give birth to a fucking baby and then return to it’s original size but of course being penetrated by that grass blade you call a penis is what’s going to make it “loose”

Uhh. The baby doesnt come out of where the penis goes in…

stay in school y’all

i hate to be the bearer of bad news but the vagina and the vagina are, in fact, the same thing

A young girl’s father dies, and is raised as a skeletal champion for a necromancer with whom he had a deal. He agreed to act as part of this necromancer’s honor guard in return for undeath, allowing him to remain in this world with his daughter, who he died protecting from a raid on their village. One day, an order of Paladins stormed the necromancer’s lair, slaying everything except the still living girl, taking her father from her yet again. He didn’t even put up a fight, offering to let them pass if they would only let him leave with his offspring. They refused. The girl was taken in by the order, who intended to raise her as one of their own, but nothing they said could convince her that they had done the right thing. One night, she poisoned the cups of every knight and squire, and vowed to wipe all ‘holy’ warriors from the face of the realms.

Snowflakes are actually the perfect metaphor for people. Each one IS unique, but we all have the same structure and are pretty similar in spite of our differences. And really, with as many around as there is, aint no one gonna notice your differences unless they care enough to look closely.

People are also similar to snowflakes in that it is difficult to drive when there are too many of them piled up on the road.

Well that took a turn I didn’t expect

Only good things can come of this. 

"Would you care for a date?"
"You mean…. another data point?"
"No, I… was thinking about dinner."

"Joan, will you….
"Yes?"
"…be my co-author?" 
"Oh, Meredith! Et al!"

wait a minute

actually, no. don’t wait a minute. i will accept this. i would just clear the bullshit-factory from my mind, get sussed out, constantly have my shit together in every situation, and charged my entire being with creativity and awareness.
i am so down with this~

Yes please.

No more depression. No more anxiety. No more losing my temper at stupid shit. No more crippling fear for the future… None of it. 

You guys don’t think big enough.
Feeling motivated and pumped 24/7. Conscious access to your pattern-matching faculties and muscle and generic memory. Splinter your hemispheres and delegate different tasks for improved multi-tasking. Whatever it is you’re doing, from rocket science to playing Starcraft for a living, you’d be dominating the field in a decade.

not big enough.with 100% brain power you can learn anything much faster than anyone on earth and master it at a record pace, you could out program entire companies, out smart geniuses, never sleep as you can rest your brain in phases become the all powerful being.

We could go even bigger. With complete control, you could bypass the internal memory system in your head. You could remember every thought, every event, every SECOND of your life, even change your memories if you so choose. And if you can get your brain to bypass the simple system it uses to store memories, think of what else you could bypass. You could literaly rewire your brain to be whatever you desired. Suddenly things that used to be thrust upon us could suddenly be changed, from mental disabilities like those mentioned above, to how you go about your day to day life. Going EVEN BIGGER, your brain, is what controls you in its entirety. Having complete control over your brain, that could give you control over things like your metabolism, the rate your fingernails and hair grow, etc.
