How I deal with problems
To Emily and Kimmi, remember this!
A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”
I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”
I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”
…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.

Hopefully OP will see this.
My (straight male) fiance says: “This man is beautiful and a hero. Having seen his pictures and reading the article underneath, I feel enlightened and slightly more intelligent. If I ever had the opportunity to meet him, I would probably give him a hug.”
(P.S. My fiance is thankfully one of those that has defied societal norms and fights to keep from falling into the “pretty lady=sex object” mentality)

MUAH TO YOU ALL
A friend of mine works at a food stand in town. Please note they sell sausages, hot dogs, philly cheese steaks, corn dogs, and other assortments of fried food as well as beverages. My friend is a never-ending wealth of stories filled with bad-attitude patrons, wanna-be con artists, and just plain…
One of the hardest things about working retail is having to keep a smile on your face when the person you are helping is making it soooo difficult.
First and foremost, I really wish some people would realize that when you ask a question, please wait and hear the full answer before speaking again….
If your child is screaming bloody murder and/or pitching a fit while you are outside, please for the love of all that is good in this world, do not bring them inside a shop until they have calmed down.
1) The walls will make the sound even louder and will likely disrupt activity within the store.
A potter just gave me this little gem to share.
Often as he is working at his shop, covered head to toe in clay as he makes his merchandise on the wheel, people will watch him for a long moment then ask, “Do you make this stuff by hand?”
….brilliant, aren’t they?
Okay idk if you guys have heard about this yet so I’m going to inform you about what’s going on because it’s really serious and I think everyone needs to know about this. So basically there are some sick fucking people now who have started taping and gluing razor blades around children’s parks (and on the handles of gas pumps) and placing them strategically so children get hurt. They tape them to the handles of monkey bars (so the children’s hands get sliced open), they tape them inside of slides (i think you can imagine what will happen there) and just everywhere around the playgrounds with a sick intention of hurting young kids. I know this has literally nothing to do with my blog but I take my younger cousin to the park almost every day in the summer, and I can’t imagine what I’d do if he went down a slide rigged with razor blades. So pleaspleaseplease reblog this, I think people need to see it so they can be more careful, I don’t want little kids possibly seriously hurting themselves.
i checked this out on snopes and it appears to be true; signal boost this bullshit
The incident seemed to happen in Illinois, however copycats tend to happen, so please be careful, y’all.
