Now Playing Tracks

I took this of my friend Natalie in an abandoned house last week.I’m moving to Oregon in a week.  I’ve been in a weird mood and I feel like my work has been suffering from it lately.  But I’m hoping this move will put me back on track.  My book is really close to done, and I hope to send it off to the printer at the end of the month.

Update

So, Kelsi and I are almost 4 months in. Things are going great. I’m discovering a lot about her and even more about myself. It’s really interesting. While I agree that you must love yourself first because no one can make you love you and it’s an intrinsic realization, I also think that the love of someone else can truly help you see the good in yourself. I can easily say that over the past 4 months, I have changed a ton in the mind. Kelsi will bring up a knot in my logic (This is where I would normally hide it) and it becomes work through this problem or sacrifice my full love for her. Her being probably the most desirable thing to come into my life forces me to try to think through my mental knots. I’m growing and I know it. It’s beautiful. And I’m watching her grow, too. I can’t wait for the coming years with her.

Cosmo, you sexist piece of shit.

Oh boo. There’s Wanda, his wife, grinning evilly in the background as he’s saying it. 

Besides, context is important. Remember what this episode was? "Queen for a Day." The one with Trixie Tang’s birthday? 

The entire point of Wanda hitting Timmy with this wish was to teach a moral to him. Timmy was hitting a mental roadblock trying to come up with a birthday present for Trixie, not having a clue what “a girl” would want for her birthday. Cue the wish forcing him into a female body and… Still pretty much liking the exact same stuff. And as he later found out, Trixie liked the same things he did, even if gender norms didn’t fit for it all. 

In the end, Timmy ends up giving Trixie the present she wanted in a comic book store, but fakes getting upset over it when he gives it to her because her friends thought it was only for boys. But, she WAS grateful. 

And this moment? This right here? Our male protagonist, Timmy, is now getting playfully mocked by Cosmo for suddenly being a girl. That’s going to teach boys, through the eyes of Timmy, how stupid it is to be demeaning to females for being female. 

This episode was basically a giant slap in the face to the idea of gender norms. And you’re still calling Cosmo sexist for reinforcing the moral, which is how stupid even casual sexism is? 

Childhood is firmly not ruined, thank you.
