Resilient Ambiguity

aitu:

"THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people."

On Smiling

I was recounting the days encounters with I suppose a bit of mischief in my eyes,   when I saw my mother eyeing me. She always does this, tilts her head and narrows in on me & then points her pudgy accusing finger at me. It’s a habit of mine to look down and smile, she always misinterprets this though. The smiling on my account can be capable of making any one question my actions though. I’ve never been good at it, smiling. Such a simply task, yet I feel that my lips don’t move in the right upwards direction to give me that ‘right’ smile look. I always try to compensate with one of my tight-lipped smiles instead, but that never works out correctly.

I had one of my managers come up to me the other day. He made this gesture with his hands as if he was trying give me something, when there was nothing in his hands. Of course, my slow mind took a minute to process what he was trying to do and I slowly, reluctantly offered my hands to receive this mysterious nothing.  He stooped down low, so he could come to eye level with me and then whispered “a smile doesn’t cost a thing, try smiling sweetie”, into my ear. In return, I gave an awkward tight-lipped smile and then ran off to help a customer.

Sigh.

Why am I so awkward?

The huge amount of pressure on young girls to let their boyfriends get away with everything and not to stand up for themselves, lest they stop being a ‘chill girlfriend’ and instead become a horrible, controlling harpy is such bullshit.

Stop teaching young girls that demanding to be treated with respect and courtesy makes them shrill, over-emotional, or unworthy of listening to.

Being fathers is getting our daughters up at 5:30 am making breakfast getting them dressed for school and putting them on the bus by 6:30 .This is a typical day in our household . It’s not easy but we enjoy every moment and eveny minute of #fatherhood . #proudfathers #blackfathers #prouddads #gaydads

#people#this dispels like fifty stereotypes and I love it

Okay I’m reblogging this again because I want to point out how beautiful this is and the sheer number of stereotypes it disproves. The stereotype that a gay couple cant be good parents. The stereotype that men know nothing about caring for girls’ hair. The stereotype that all gay men are feminine. The stereotype that black men abandon their children. The stereotype that people with a lot of tattoos aren’t caring. The stereotype that black people are too lazy to care about things like school- This picture is a beautiful thing and I love everything about it and it makes me regain confidence in the world we live in

My dad’s Husband is black, and ever since i was 7 years old he has expected a lot out of me. he would most definitely get my butt out of bed for school in the mornings, bribe me to clean my room, tell me i was his baby girl and i could have anything and do anything. I had more stability and better grades living with my dads through high school than i did living with my single mother. This photo was pretty much my life growing up. My dad’s birthday is coming up and i can’t wait to see the both of them.

real people. are. fucking beautiful.
stop hating, stop judging, stop assuming.

This was too beautiful to not reblog.  :0)
