    They wouldn’t say “Father of two meets world leaders today”

    They’d say “President Obama meets world leaders today”.

    They wouldn’t say “Father of three founds one of the most successful modern computer businesses.”

    They’d say “Bill Gates founds one of the most successful modern computer businesses.”

    Get your shit right and use women’s names, not the number of kids they have.

  6. We shouldn’t teach great books; we should teach a love of reading. Knowing the contents of a few works of literature is a trivial achievement. Being inclined to go on reading is a great achievement.

    B.F. Skinner, American psychologist

    A false dichotomy. We can do both.

    the best part about being in your 20’s is slowly caring less and less about what people think of you and surrounding yourself with good people

    the worst is that I’m broke

    Remember that online fundraiser to build a pro-LGBT billboard in the Westboro Baptist Church’s hometown? It worked. Feast your eyes on the “God Loves Gays” billboard, standing proud in Topeka, Kansas for all to see. If any additional funding comes through, it will be used for bus ads in Topeka, donations to LGBT youth organizations, and possibly a similar billboard in Utah. Bless. (via the Huffington Post)

    "Boy, these conservatives are really something, aren’t they? They’re all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you’re born, you’re on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t want to know about you. They don’t want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you’re preborn, you’re fine; if you’re preschool, you’re fucked." ~ George Carlin

  15. Never be afraid to apologize to your child. If you lose your temper and say something in anger that wasn’t meant to be said, apologize. Children need to know that adults can admit when they are wrong.

    American Humane Society (via maninsun)

    This is so, so important.
