"well why is it even important to mention aromantic and asexual people all the time not everyone gets mention-"
because our entire culture is so deeply steeped in sex and romance and there’s millions of people who want none of one or the other or both and they need to be recognized and mentioned instead of made to feel like they don’t fit and they’re broken
occasionallybinding asked: What's one parenting practice of your parental units that you intend to use with your children?
Open communication, real apologies, and not holding grudges (but that’s three things really).
We’re a house that believes in transparent communication about everything. From money to sex to drugs to everything in between. I want my children to be (age appropriately) aware of the world in which they live, so that they can make decisions that will keep them safe, and know that they can ask for help when they need it, without fear of shame and punishment.
We’re a house that apologises after a screaming match, and once forgiveness is given (and it always is), the incident is never used in a grudgy, shady, guilt trip way.
I want to be a house like that.
Lets have a dystopian future movie where none of the actors are white
Not a single one
There’s just no white people and not a single character questions it
Watch how quickly people notice and get pissed off
but wouldn’t it be better to put one white extra in the far background of a huge crowd shot for a few frames, so we could point to them every time someone gets pissed off?
LOL this is still my favorite post.
- Them: I don't think kids should be exposed to gay relationships.
- You: Why not?
- Them: It's introducing children to sexuality! They're too young for that!
- You: So when a prince and princess kiss in a Disney movie, are they introduced to sexuality? When the prince and the princess get married and have a child, is that introducing your child to sexuality?
- Them: NO! But if they see a man and a man, or a woman and a woman together... they're going to start asking questions! Like how a man and a man can... you know, do anything together.
- You: You think the only thing people think when they see a gay couple is "I wonder how they have sex"? Furthermore, you think a CHILD is going to even know what that means? When the prince and the princess kiss, does your 4 year old daughter ask, "mommy, how do people have intercourse"? No. She just sees two people in love. If you remember when you were a kid, you probably didn't think about sex every time you saw two people happy together.
- Them: But it'll bring up all kinds of questions, it'll confuse my child!
- You: Then be a fucking parent and explain it to your child. The only question that might be brought up is "mom, why don't you want gay people to be happy?". And when you don't have a good answer for that question, you can look your child in the eye and say "It's because I'm a bigot".
