Mommy of the Future

Named for a song my then-4-yr-old wrote about me but really about all sorts of things. Theoretically.

spoonie-living:

I have a really exciting Spoonie Living announcement for y’all! When I started on my 6-month medical leave from work, one of my goals was to create a zine for new spoonies, to help them hit the ground running as they begin their chronic illness experience. I’m calling it Chronically Badass, and it’s finally done!
Here’s what I cover inside:
Spoon theory
Getting answers
Working with doctors
Work & school
Friends & family
Reactions
Mental health
Coping strategies
Online communities
Mobility
It’s free for download right here (although you’re welcome to donate if you like), so be sure to check it out!
Please also reblog and spread the word so others can find and benefit from this zine.

Anonymous said: Am I racist if (from a general perspective) I'm not attractive to women from African descent? There are certainly exceptions, but not many. I don't dislike them personally or mentally, but I'm hardly ever physically turned on by them. Is this considered racism, or simply preference?

yoisthisracist:

Racists always write in thinking that this fake-ass dichotomy is somehow going to make it OK for them to spout their racist ideas about who they’re attracted to (short answer, uh, your preference is racist, you fucking idiot).

I’ve seriously answered this literally 100 times, but, one thing that’s always fascinating is to think about what kind of special brand of asshole is so full of themselves, so sure that their own whims, desires and preferences are somehow innate, unchangeable and uninfluenced by culture, that their mere existence somehow means that they’re automatically correct. Like, how little do you have to examine yourself and the world around you that this could even be a question you might pose, you piece of garbage.

Gentle reminder that people working in customer service are paid to be nice to you and you should not fucking flirt with them because you’re probably making them extremely uncomfortable you piece of shit don’t force us into engaging your gross ass

And after they tell you they’re married, don’t send them a huge bouquet of roses with a note saying “You look beautiful today,” especially if they haven’t even seen you that day and can only assume you’re watching from a distance through a high-powered telescope.

And if you screw up and do THAT, don’t follow up by sending an apology note - not for being a huge creeper, but because the last time you saw them they must have been terribly hurt that you didn’t mention how beautiful they looked when they’d clearly gone to great effort to impress you.

(And that, readers, is when I quit my job.)

Fuck I’m walking downtown and I pass a group of guys staring at me and I think “great catcall time” but then one guy goes “you look like you could kill a man a million different ways with just your bare hands”. This. This is an acceptable comment to give a girl on the street.

'My name is Robert but I would prefer that you call me Bob.' It's just like that. You know what I mean? And if you were to insist upon calling that person Robert, you would be a colossal dick. Paul F. Tompkins, succinctly explaining why you call people what they want to be called, whether it’s “little people” or “transgender” or “chairperson” or “Bob”. It’s not about being politically correct and it’s not about you. It’s about basic decency and respect. (via ericmortensen)

It gets better—the guy is deaf, and he taught his cat the sign for “food.” So the cat’s not just saying “put that in my mouth,” it’s actually signing
Not only that, but if you notice at the beginning, the cat *gets the man’s attention* as any person who wanted to talk to a deaf/hoh individual would (well, and vice versa IME). I’ve done sign since I was 5, and generally, w/o eye contact initially, you wave a hand or lightly touch the arm (if that’s ok with the person you’re trying to converse with, of course). Generally, adult cats meow mostly to humans, but this cat has figured out that’s not going to work and has adapted. Animal companions! They are INCREDIBLE.
******************
So what I’m getting here is my cat has a better idea of how to accommodate a disability than people and is more open and adaptable. I knew that already but it’s nice to have it confirmed.

One time in class, I got fed up

vaspider:

This was one of my favorite teachers ever, he didn’t believe in homework and was just the coolest dude ever

Teacher: I won’t be here tomorrow so I left worksheets for the teacher to give you.

Kid: why can’t we watch a movie?

Teacher: because the school board doesn’t like us to show you movies that don’t have anything to do with the curriculum. They say that movies are for home and we need to keep your home life separate from your school life.

Me: then why do they give us homework?

Whole class:…..

Teacher:…..

President:…..

Miley Cyrus:….

Me:….

Teacher: Samantha, please. Whatever you do. Bring this up with the principal because that’s the best argument I have ever heard.
