This is so accurate. At school, we literally have children who will watch our facial expressions to see if them falling is as bad as they think it might be.


  • do not react. at the most, maybe wince and go “ooooh”
  • go over to the child to assess panic level and severity of injury
  • if they’re like, dying, remain calm, but they’re probably not.
  • look them in the eye and ask, “you okay?” they will nod. possibly all teary-eyed. then ask, “are we gonna need to cut it off?”
  • the child is thrown off. if they giggle, you’re in the money. if they do not, put a bandaid on and do some sympathetic patting. they are probably a little teary. let the sad little bug sit out for a minute. they will quickly get bored.
  • works every time

Wondering if I’ll have children…



When I have my own little beasties, boy/girl. They’ll know the meaning of Feminism. I’m NOT having my beasties brain washed by patriarchy.
Whatever they want to be is great, I want them to be happy. And to question things, and be curious of the world.

I am the evil patriarchy here to brainwash your children… BOO!

oturtharian Cool anything else you got to say? Just my own thoughts. But thanks for the laugh.
