Geek at least
And if you must put me in a box,
make sure it's a big box
With lots of windows
And a door to walk through
And a nice high chimney
So we can burn burn burn everything that we don't like
And watch the ashes fly up to Heaven
Maybe all the way to India
I'd like that

Sometimes I draw; sometime I write crappy haikus.

Omfg today at school I was talking to my gay friend and some random kid walked by and called me a fag hag and I didn’t know what to do so I just went up to the kid and hugged him and I was like “it’s okay, once you come out you will discover your true self” and then he hugged me back and started crying and he said “it’s just so hard to feel accepted” and I just

what we need see less of in fantasy literature:

  • oversexed versions of fantasy!africa
  • fantasy!africa being ‘mostly unexplored’
  • fantasy!black people being described as ‘ape-like’
  • white cultures being the only cultures that are vividly described
  • seeing less of non-white cultures
  • seeing less of native/amerindian cultures
  • ignoring the incas/egyptians
  • whitewashing the roman empire
  • whitewashing the major poc cultures once it gets a tv show
  • sexualizing teenagers
  • rape
  • pedophilia
  • treating prostitutes like chattel without human emotions

A friend and I were out with our kids when another family’s two-year-old came up. She began hugging my friend’s 18-month-old, following her around and smiling at her. My friend’s little girl looked like she wasn’t so sure she liked this, and at that moment the other little girl’s mom came up and got down on her little girl’s level to talk to her.

“Honey, can you listen to me for a moment? I’m glad you’ve found a new friend, but you need to make sure to look at her face to see if she likes it when you hug her. And if she doesn’t like it, you need to give her space. Okay?”

Two years old, and already her mother was teaching her about consent.

My daughter Sally likes to color on herself with markers. I tell her it’s her body, so it’s her choice. Sometimes she writes her name, sometimes she draws flowers or patterns. The other day I heard her talking to her brother, a marker in her hand.

“Bobby, do you mind if I color on your leg?”

Bobby smiled and moved himself closer to his sister. She began drawing a pattern on his leg with a marker while he watched, fascinated. Later, she began coloring on the sole of his foot. After each stoke, he pulled his foot back, laughing. I looked over to see what was causing the commotion, and Sally turned to me.

“He doesn’t mind if I do this,” she explained, “he is only moving his foot because it tickles. He thinks its funny.” And she was right. Already Bobby had extended his foot to her again, smiling as he did so.

What I find really fascinating about these two anecdotes is that they both deal with the consent of children not yet old enough to communicate verbally. In both stories, the older child must read the consent of the younger child through nonverbal cues. And even then, consent is not this ambiguous thing that is difficult to understand.

Teaching consent is ongoing, but it starts when children are very young. It involves both teaching children to pay attention to and respect others’ consent (or lack thereof) and teaching children that they should expect their own bodies and their own space to be respected—even by their parents and other relatives.

And if children of two or four can be expected to read the nonverbal cues and expressions of children not yet old enough to talk in order to assess whether there is consent, what excuse do full grown adults have?

I try to do this every day I go to nursery and gosh it makes me so happy to see it done elsewhere.

Yes, consent is nonsexual, too!

Not only that, but one of the reasons many child victims of sexual abuse don’t reach out is that they don’t have the understanding or words for what is happening to them, and why it isn’t okay. Teaching kids about consent helps them build better relationships and gives them the tools to seek help if they or a friend need our protection.

i really have no idea what this has to do with survival skills

Actually she has identifying which plants and berries are poisonous. She was quizzing herself. It’s foreshadowing because she later dies from eating poisonous berries; in the book, it’s seen as a foolish mistake, but because of this scene, it has implications of suicide. 

Holy shit

Well the Hunger Games just became even more devastating than it already was.

My wife and I have actually had very extensive conversations about Foxface. Specifically, my argument is that Foxface is in love with Katniss, or had another reason to want her to win, or survive.
Foxface excels in subtlety and observational awareness, she is always aware of where the other players in the game are, but when ever Katniss is in trouble, Foxface shows up to show her the way. She shows Katniss how to bypass the mines at the food cache. She shows Katniss that she can make it to the “feast” and back out safely.

But there’s a question. Why would Foxface steal a handful of berries from Peeta? She was hungry? But she could just harvest her own berries, without needing to potentially reveal herself. I find it hard to believe Foxface would steal 20 berries, when Peeta just showed her what the bush looks like. So the argument is, she wanted to kill herself, to save Katniss, and Peeta (since she knows two can survive). But why not just go eat her own berries? At any point during this whole thing?

My argument is that she ate Peeta’s berries for two reasons. One, she wanted to show Peeta that the berries were poisonous, because she didn’t want Katniss to lose him. And, Two. She wanted Katniss to know, or have the opportunity to deduce, that Foxface was in love with her. There’s any number of ways she could kill herself, but she did it publicly, revealing that she’s not only been following Katniss and Peeta, but to put the question in her mind: Why steal 20 berries from Peeta?

Why?

This is a fascinating theory.
