I am a feminist because I believe women should be allowed to choose to wear whatever they like.
(at least when no uniforms for work/school apply)
I see/hear so many messages in the media telling us to wear clothes that look slimming, or look modest, or show off our womanly form, or don’t look trashy, or don’t look too ageing, or don’t look too childish. You will feel fabulous if you dress this way, or you will be a real woman if you dress that other way. So many conflicting messages. It is exhausting!
Did you ever notice how in the kids/teens aisle of clothing stores everything is so much more colourful and varied, whereas the adult section tends to be more emphasized with black, dark or earthy colours? What is this message saying to us? That when we grow up, we have to become ninjas or camouflage ourselves, to blend into the background and not stand out? Bah I say- bah!
My message also aims to reach out towards guys who like to wear feminine clothing, but get bullied or laughed at for doing so; because looking feminine is still something that can’t be taken seriously today.
Can we all not just wear what we like, and carry on with life?
It’s my body. It doesn’t belong to anyone else. I should be able to adorn it however I wish- at least in my free time.
my parents named their kid after me
Oscar was adopted as a kitten from an animal shelter and grew up in the third-floor end-stage dementia unit at Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Providence, Rhode Island. The 41-bed unit treats people with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease and other illnesses, most of whom are in the end stage of life and are generally unaware of their surroundings. Oscar was one of six cats adopted by Steere House, which bills itself as a “pet friendly” facility.
After about six months, the staff noticed that Oscar, just like the doctors and nurses, would make his own rounds. Oscar would sniff and observe patients, then curl up to sleep with certain ones. The patients he would sleep with often died within several hours of his arrival. One of the first cases involved a patient who had a blood clot in her leg that was ice cold at the time. Oscar wrapped his body around her leg and stayed until the woman died.In another instance, the doctor had made a determination of impending death based on the patient’s condition, while Oscar simply walked away, causing the doctor to believe that Oscar’s streak (12 at the time) had ended. However, it would be later discovered that the doctor’s prognosis was simply 10 hours too early: Oscar later visited the patient, who died two hours later.
Oscar’s accuracy led the staff to institute a new and unusual protocol: once he is discovered sleeping with a patient, staff will call family members to notify them of the patient’s (expected) impending death.
Most of the time the patient’s family has no issue with Oscar being present at the time of death. On those occasions when he is removed from the room at the family’s request, he is known to pace back and forth in front of the door and meow in protest. When present, Oscar will stay by the patient until they die, then after death will quietly leave the room.
i find this very interesting as this behavior seems common in many cats that reside in mental and nursing homes. Often sharing the bed of the soon to be deceased. In the ancient world cats were revered by many cultures, most famously Ancient Egypt, as guardians of the underworld, keepers of the gate of death, and sometimes even harbingers of death itself. This makes me wonder whether this behavior was observed during ancient times as well and perhaps prompted this belief and many practices surrounding it.

could you handle being in an anime
could you handle holding toast in your mouth without dropping it while running
could you handle cicadas chirping loudly at all hours in the summer
could you handle all the cherry blossoms

My friend’s dad used to work on Kim Possible and one time we went with him to work and I remembered how a classmate of mine had asked me once why Bonnie’s boobs were round and Kim’s were pointy so I asked my friend and her dad walked in and my friend immediately spun the question on him and I was like no wait stop but without even blinking he just said ‘because Kim’s are real’
