When I’m a parent I’m definitely going to ask my child often “are you okay?” I never want my child to be crying their eyes out when I’m peacefully sleeping under the same roof and I certainly never want them to feel like there’s nobody there for them. Because I always will be

Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.
Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”
Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.
These are women are who I always wanted to be.
Let’s not forget that these ladies are STILL out there grinding on the front lines for feminism.
WHEN I HAVE CHILDREN IM GOING TO LET THEM DO WHATEVER THEIR HEART DESIRES WHEN IT COMES TO BANDS. THEY CAN RUN A FUCKING BLOG OR GO TO A CONCERT THAT ENDS AT MIDNIGHT OR RUIN THE PAINT ON THE WALLS WITH POSTERS AND BLAST THEIR MUSIC THROUGH THE SPEAKERS WHEN WE ARE DRIVING AND WE CAN STAY UP UNTIL EARLY HOURS TALKING ABOUT HOW HOT THAT MEMBER IS BECAUSE PARENTS NOWADAYS HAVE NO CLUE. NO CLUE.

Parenting done right
ugh. this is so wrong. how can you support someone letting their kid wear socks on grass. do you know how hard it is to wash those stains out?
I thought I was going to have to yell at someone for being a close minded asswipe but that was the biggest plot twist of my life.
But look at Michael’s sweater. It’s so worn and stretched out that it just hangs off his shoulder. And it’s probably the most comfortable thing ever and smells just like him. Just imagine stealing it from him because of it’s coziness and walking over to him while he’s playing a video game and cuddling up into his side. He’d just look over at you in awe because of how adorable you look all nestled into this huge sweater, his huge sweater, and he’d probably stop the video game and cuddle you closer and whisper into your ear how beautiful you are and how much he loves you and he’d give you the most passionate and sincere kiss he could just to prove it to you.
