Why is it...
That so many parents use stripper as a “worst case” job for their daughters? I just heard this earlier today, when someone said something along the lines of “I love my daughter, I want her to be happy, not dancing naked every night for strangers.” I missed the context for this, but, honestly.. what if she wants to dance naked for strangers? I just don’t understand...
This is something that bugs the fuck out of me and I want to rant, dammit. So, it’s nice when someone gets me something randomly that they think I’ll like, I appreciate the thought, but it drives me fucking crazy, then people try to guilt trip me over shit I never asked for.

absurdlyawkward: I can’t be around babies…or small children that throw tantrums or talk/giggle/scream in a high pitched voice…or aimlessly walk into me. It completely enrages me to an inappropriate level and I wish there was a way to fix it but I don’t know how. I don’t like feeling angry and…like…almost… I’m pretty much the exact same way… A lot of people have called me a...

(Names have been altered slightly, just in case.)
Josie: I have a new crusshhhhh
Matt: Me too! On a boy!
Pearl: You're a boy with a crush on a boy?
Matt: Yeah he's really cute.
(pause for a bit)
Matt: Boys can like boys. I just an't marry him because boys can't marry boys.
Me: Yeah they can. You can marry whoever you want.
Josie: YEAH my tia has a wife so now I have a titi and a auntie.
Matt: Okay. Then maybe I'll marry him.
Dave: (from across the room) No you can't you're seven.
(Age was apparently the only foreseeable problem anyone of my elementary schoolers could see with gay marriage. I almost cried out of happiness. Later, when I was asked if boys could kiss anyone they wanted, I replied "only if they want to kiss you back." And Josie responded "Yeah! Your body your life.")
