I was in some form of childcare/supervision all through my teens and I’m still 100% positive I’d make a terrible mother. Watching/playing with someone’s offspring for a few hours vs 24/7 commitment to their well-being? Yikes.
Hahahaha same! I was a camp counselor and I liked it but I was also really glad when the kiddos went home for the day.

It blows my mind when people complain about AA without acknowledging that whiteness is the same thing. I’m like, trust me: you’re not getting paid more than a POC because you’re better than them.

Most people could say they don’t know if they can handle the responsibility, prior to, during, and after having children…it’s overwhelming to say the least. It was totally worth it though, for me ;)
That’s good :P
I think that’s probably normal and different from those of us who are like NO WAY IN HELL WOULD THAT WORK haha

this!! a lot! especially guys complaining when a woman gets the job just because of affirmative action and not on the merits of her work. Its so dispiriting to hear. Its like.. dang you fucking suck bro. =((
Should have been something like “take care of your body as if it was the local cat that you love” or something. Way more relatable.
Pet your head and tell yourself you are the prettiest kitty ever and then give yourself a bowl of food…yep sounds about right. Hahaha.
i completely distrust anyone who sees a woman and/or POC in a position of power and suspects they got there thanks to affirmative action or similar initiatives
because really if you’re focusing on that and ~not~ about how likely it is that any given white man in a position of power got there thanks to his sex/race/class privileges
then you are probably either racist/sexist/classist or just very very ignorant and either way it’s going to be hard for me to trust you with anything
a while ago there was a quote floating around my dashboard that was about self-care and being kind to yourself and it was very sweet and well-meaning and basically the advice was to take care of your body as if it was your child’s body
and i was like
that’s a nice idea but no fucking way am i fit to care for a child jesus christ
i like to think that what i’m doing is not ~failing to sleep~ but rather ~momentarily transcending my body’s need to perform basic biological processes so that i can later humbly reaffirm the very limited nature of my humanity~
who are these people who know the names of the game of thrones actors? i can’t even remember the names of the characters
