So let me tell you about the shittiest parent on the motherfucking planet.
I work at a grocery store and this man comes in with his 11 year old son. He buys a pack a cigarettes and a two cases of beer. The son was holding a two dollar drawing pad and placed it on the belt and I guess the dad didn’t notice it at first but when I was about to scan the pad he asked where’d it have come from and turned towards the kid and asked “Did you put that shit up there?”. He told me to put it back and then told his 11 year old child that he “ain’t paying for that gay ass notebook.”. So I looked at the kid, who was close to tears and saying how he ran out of paper at home and my heart broke. So I gave the pad to him, for free, and told the dad I would take care of it. I gave the kid some tokens for a game outside and said I would look forward to buying some of his drawings and paintings when he’s all famous. He kids face was so priceless and I thought everything was good. But then, about 10 ten minutes after giving the kid his notebook, I walked outside and saw this. The drawing pad all ripped up and tossed on the pavement. I could only imagine what happened in the parking lot, but I know that that poor kid heart is fucking ripped apart, just like this pad.
I’m fucking horrified that there are parents like this, who, just because it’s not masculine or gender specificthey won’t let their children follow their true passions or explore interests that lead to their happiness. Even more so, I’m horrified that parents don’t care about the fine arts anymore because it doesn’t have job security. Since when did it ever matter to a child if their passion makes them money or not? Parenting is about supporting whatever makes your child happy. Have some fucking consideration for your child’s wants not your homophobic and anti-art ideals.
Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy, in case you hadn’t heard. How dare she remove those ticking time bombs from her chest, amiright? Like, hasn’t she learned by now that her body is public domain and we all get to vote on what she does with it? Sheesh, how selfish can ya get.
as somebody who similarly runs an exceptionally high risk of breast cancer i’m glad she took the actions she did
if her children lost their mother to breast cancer when the only justification of not taking such preventative actions is ‘well, they were nice boobs’ wouldnt really cut it
she doesnt have to fear her children losing their mother any more, and now she gets to live out her life to the full with her family and her loving and supportive husband and she’s having the breast tissue replaced with implants which is an option many women (like my mother) just don’t have when they develop cancer
so rock on angelina you’ve always been a babe and always will be
I was grumpy today and so my mom told me that she bought me something that would cheer me up. I told her that there couldn’t have been anything amazing enough to rid me of my grumpiness…
I was wrong…
The man just wants to feel cute. He doesn’t understand the laughter.
i feel you samuel
With deference to the genius of David Bowie, here’s Space Oddity, recorded on Station. A last glimpse of the World.
Huge thanks in the making of the video to the talented trio of Emm Gryner, Joe Corcoran and Andrew Tidby, plus Evan Hadfield and all at the CSA.
Look, if you don’t want to see an astronaut, in space, floating around, with the voice of an angel, singing Space Oddity, you’re probably an orc or something.
“Excuse me….who are you?”

My 5 year old son playing League for the very first time. Picked Garen because of “his big sword”. I talked him through a bit of it, but he’s watched us enough to know some stuff.
