These women country singers imagined a world where men are the sexy props

This video is perfect.

It’s always interesting to me, the people who are the most offended by me and Husband being child-free by choice. 
 
I got a call from my brother today. Brother who is, just, like, shockingly unlike me. We’ve never really gotten along, aside from when were we little little, so I don’t know why it shocks me so much that we’re not only so different, but that’ he seems to be so offended by my differentness, even though we were raised to be who we are, without apology or shame. (I mean, he’s racist and a Republican and he probably should have some shame, but, whatever.)

I’m childfree by choice. Children are not for me. Or Husband. We like kids, generally, just fine (Husband is a teacher for fucks sake), we do not hate children, nor do we begrudge other people for having them. I’m glad other people have them! I just don’t want to do it myself! Just like I’m glad other people make music, and work in sales, and science, and cook! I want these things to happen in the world! I just don’t want to do them myself. It’s not a value judgement. You do you, I’ll do me. Honestly. 

But I casually mention that because we are childfree having our sister’s entire family (including four children!) in our house for a week was kind of intense, and he reacts like I’ve said I think all children should be shunned or, preferably, that they never should have existed in the first place. I really don’t even know how I’m related to him. 

I don’t even know. I spent altogether too much time on the phone with him. I really should have just been like Hey good to hear from you I gotta go bai.

a piece of advice from somebody’s who’s been through this a few times already: if somebody gives you a bad vibe trust your gut

(via downlookingup)

There’s no point to a guy yelling, “Hey sexy baby” at me out of the passenger window of a car as it speeds past. Even if I was into creepy misogynists and wanted to give him my number, I couldn’t. The car didn’t even slow down. But that’s okay, because he wasn’t actually hitting on me. The point wasn’t to proposition me or chat me up. The only point was to remind me, and all women, that our bodies are his to stare at, assess, comment on, even touch. “Hey sexy baby” is the first part of a sentence that finishes, “this is your daily message from the patriarchy, reminding you that your body is public property”.

Rory was absolutely and without a doubt pro-choice and that poster was without question intentional and if you don’t know that you know nothing Jon Snow.

Which was actually pretty appropriate, since I needed to be somewhere where I could drink during the day and weep.

Anyways! I’m back now and have three days of pent-up lady rage for you.

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCKING FUCK, SCOTUS. I’m so glad five old white Catholic dudes decided a corporate entity’s…
