true

Girls always bitch about this, sure, but it’s not like it’s any better for guys. You think I wanna be some ultra macho beefcake?
There’s a reason I always pick female character models in video games.

I fucking lost my shit over this

I think I’ve already reblogged this before but who cares.

petition to stop using “strong female character” and instead “well-written female character” so that sexist douchebags understand that we’re insulting them for their inability to write 50% of the world’s population and just how fucking basic our expectations are.

ughhh sorry i always post these so late! here’s a really quick front view of trueform!dean. the actual first drawing i did of him in may didn’t really show his face because i wasn’t super confident in the look of it, but i finally got it down.

and to answer a commonly asked question about dean:

  • why in the all-mighty HELL is dean THE SAME SIZE AS THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING? i don’t think demons should be taller than angels! BOO

oKAY okay i get this SO MUCH. so much. let me explain my dumb headcanon HEAR ME OUT:

i think that souls determine the size of the demon. like, how good the soul was determines the size of the demon. which is why crowley is huge, too—he’s made deals. he’s taken the souls. and good ones, because he’s a good salesman. he consumes them, and thus grows in power, strength, and intimidation. souls can make anything into the biggest, mightiest weapon because they’re what has split everything apart. they have to be protected at all costs. or like, in abaddon’s case, farmed.

  • but scout, dean never consumed sOULS THAT STILL DOESN’T ANSWER M—

hold up HOLD UP ALRIGHT. look at dean. thin, empty—but HUGE. he hasn’t collected any souls, no. it’s just his. forced to become stretched, ripped, and twisted. he’s the righteous man, the ultimate. his soul was so good, and so pure, that the mark alone forced it to become something huge, and absolutely horrifying. something that can only die if killed by its own blade

something that screeches 80s power ballads ALL THE TIME

Okay everyone. Do you see this?

Do you see these two words?

They do not mean the same thing.

Can we all decide to stop using “gay” as a synonym for bisexual, since they’re completely different things? Bisexuality is not the same concept as homosexuality, nor is it a subset of it.

"Should parents read their daughter's texts or monitor her online activity for bad language and inappropriate content?"

daughter-of-a-badass:

Earlier today, I served as the “young woman’s voice” in a panel of local experts at a Girl Scouts speaking event. One question for the panel was something to the effect of, "Should parents read their daughter’s texts or monitor her online activity for bad language and inappropriate content?"

I was surprised when the first panelist answered the question as if it were about cyberbullying. The adult audience nodded sagely as she spoke about the importance of protecting children online.

I reached for the microphone next. I said, “As far as reading your child’s texts or logging into their social media profiles, I would say 99.9% of the time, do not do that.”

Looks of total shock answered me. I actually saw heads jerk back in surprise. Even some of my fellow panelists blinked.

Everyone stared as I explained that going behind a child’s back in such a way severs the bond of trust with the parent. When I said, “This is the most effective way to ensure that your child never tells you anything,” it was like I’d delivered a revelation.

It’s easy to talk about the disconnect between the old and the young, but I don’t think I’d ever been so slapped in the face by the reality of it. It was clear that for most of the parents I spoke to, the idea of such actions as a violation had never occurred to them at all.

It alarms me how quickly adults forget that children are people.

Apparently people are rediscovering this post somehow and I think that’s pretty cool! Having experienced similar violations of trust in my youth, this is an important issue to me, so I want to add my personal story:

Around age 13, I tried to express to my mother that I thought I might have clinical depression, and she snapped at me “not to joke about things like that.” I stopped telling my mother when I felt depressed.

Around age 15, I caught my mother reading my diary. She confessed that any time she saw me write in my diary, she would sneak into my room and read it, because I only wrote when I was upset. I stopped keeping a diary.

Around age 18, I had an emotional breakdown while on vacation because I didn’t want to go to college. I ended up seeing a therapist for - surprise surprise - depression.

Around age 21, I spoke on this panel with my mother in the audience, and afterwards I mentioned the diary incident to her with respect to this particular Q&A. Her eyes welled up, and she said, “You know I read those because I was worried you were depressed and going to hurt yourself, right?”

TL;DR: When you invade your child’s privacy, you communicate three things:

  1. You do not respect their rights as an individual.
  2. You do not trust them to navigate problems or seek help on their own.
  3. You probably haven’t been listening to them.

Information about almost every issue that you think you have to snoop for can probably be obtained by communicating with and listening to your child.

This is FANTASTIC! I was lucky enough growing up to have parents who were pretty amazing at keeping the communication lines open with me. Instead of trying to protect me from everything themselves, they taught me critical thinking so I would be able to protect myself. As a result, I rarely if ever felt the need to keep secrets or go behind their back because they trusted me.

I later came to realize just how unusual this was, at least among the people I knew. I remember being SHOCKED to read an article where a mother talked about how she routinely went through all of her son’s drawers and belongings to make sure he was not on drugs. All I could think of was ‘How does that poor guy survive mentally with no privacy? Why doesn’t she just talk to him? WHY DOES SHE AUTOMATICALLY ASSUME THE CHILD IS BEING UNTRUTHFUL OR DISHONEST?

If one doesn’t trust their child, then what message is it sending them? How could one ever expect to be trusted back?
