The sportscaster recapping this Jays/Marlins game just quoted Will Smith’s Miami in complete monotone like it was a totally normal thing that people do sometimes.
party in the city
where the heat is on
all night on the beach
'till the break of dawn
Jays lost today
Keep in mind that im only 15 years old ladies
We’re mad because you’re a cis male trying to apply your oppressive stance to people. You will never have that choice.
Also, I’m going to call you an asshole, and I’m 18. Your age doesn’t matter.
Because you are an asshole, it’s that easy, if you want to avoid that, stop being one!
Yay, not being an asshole is pretty easy!
Moment of silence for this kid who will never recover from the trauma he experienced when a woman was mean to him.
My favourite part about posts with this much blatant body shaming/slut shaming/objectification/sexism is when you get to trace it back through hundreds of notes attached to blogs with “WHY AM I SINGLE?” posts. Gosh, what a mystery! At least you all look super cool in those fedoras.
Great, how serial rapists and sexual assault savants are made.
This is why my mother has made it clear to the boys in our family that this shit is unacceptable from day one. You can’t let them exhibit this kind of behavior under the guise of “oh it’s cute!’ and “boys will be boys” and then expect them to listen to you about it when they’re older.
Perfect example of rape culture right here. Little dude just can’t take a fucking hint.
^ all of you, please be fucking kidding me. At the ages of these children, your statements would equal that of calling a dog a rapist for humping another dog. A child that is three years old does not have the cognitive ability to cooperate, share, or help other children. They simply are unable to see the viewpoints of another mind other than their own. They are unable to know how another person feels or thinks. They are just now learning colors, shapes, and the differences between night and day. Calling this kid a rapist-to-be or even trying to chastise their parents for enabling ”rape culture” is sickening. Put your elitest bullshit away.
Saying this is a product of rape culture is equivalent to saying that a toddler hugging a cat a little too tight is animal abuse. Ya’ll are idiots, they’re fucking children.
I reblogged this a while ago when it had comments like “Yeah you show him!, teach him no means no!” etc on it, and it was cute because it was in an entirely silly, joking way. The last two comments on this are perfect. They are like 2, they don’t have any concept of what personal space is or anything like that… they are toddlers.
I put a great deal of effort into ~scrolling on by~ posts that involve kids, because I have A LOT of “stop filming your kids doing dumb shit for the sake of entertainment” related feelings, but this one keeps popping up on my dash, so, whatever. My main issue with the commentary here is that yes, you’re all right in saying that the cognitive capacity of a toddler is far from being able to completely understand empathetic thinking, and yes, they are predominately egocentric in their understanding of the world; however, by saying that they can’t “cooperate, share, or help other children,” you’re taking a pretty big leap. It’s really all a matter of how advanced their EI is, but an actual developmental milestone for children (mostly starting around age 3) is showing concern for and trying to comfort peers when they’re hurt or distressed.
Toddlers might not understand “personal space” in the same way that we do, but they clearly understand physical discomfort. Unfortunately, that child can’t exactly verbalize that she doesn’t like what’s going on. All she can do is push. You know who can intervene though? The adult filming it.
Also, you know, let’s bring this whole thing back around to rape culture, because that’s what most of the commentary on this post addresses. You know what actually lowers the probability of childhood sexual abuse? Teaching children about good touches vs. bad touches, the concept of personal space/personal bubbles, and that it’s perfectly normal to feel uncomfortable when someone invades that bubble. Additionally, defining and addressing the entire concept of body autonomy and “bad touches” with kids when they’re young means they’re more likely to disclose and talk openly about all forms of abuse if anything does happen at any point in their lives.
And that concludes this Shit No One Cares About post.

HEY, someone asked me to do that accent challenge thing forever ago, and I finally did it, so, whatever. If you’ve ever wanted to look at my face for four minutes while I talk about nothing important, now you can (you should also probably question your priorities)! It was worth it just for that attractive thumbnail though.

Tomorrow is my last official day working at the shelter. I assumed leaving was going to be fairly easy/normal, but we all got together today and they said a bunch of really nice things about me, which made me realize how odd it is that suddenly I’m not really going to be part of their lives anymore. I cope with real feelings by doing things for other people though, so, now this is happening.
