We donโ€™t disrespect American Girl in this house Donโ€™t you dare disrespect Addy, or any of my girls for that matter. American Girl used to be legit. Good stories, good dolls, good movies. Felicityโ€™s story was set in the beginnings of the American Revolution, and addressed the conflict that she faced when her loved ones were split between patriots and loyalists. It also covered the effects of animal abuse, and forgiving those who are unforgivable. Samanthaโ€™s stories centered around the growth of industrial America, womenโ€™s suffrage, child abuse, and corruption in places of power. Also, it emphasises how dramatically adoption into a caring family can turn a life around. Kitโ€™s story is one of my favorites. Her family is hit hard by the Great Depression, and they begin taking in boarders and raise chickens to help make ends meet. Her books include themes of poverty, police brutality, homelessness, prejudice, and the importance of unity in difficult times. Mollyโ€™s father, a doctor, is drafted during the Second World War. Throughout her story, friends of hers suffer the loss of their husbands, sons, and brothers overseas. Her mother leaves the traditional housewife position and works full-time to help with the war effort. They also take in an English refugee child, who learns to open up after a life of traumatic experience. American Girl stories have always featured the very harsh realities of America through the years. But theyโ€™re always presented honestly, yet in ways that kids can understand. They just go to show that you donโ€™t have to live in a perfect time to be a real American girl. Dont you fucking dare disrespect the American Girls in my house. ESPECIALLY Addy!! That was my first REAL contact with the horrors of slavery, as I read about her father being whipped and sold and her mother escaping with her to freedom, but also how freedom was still a struggle. A slave doll. Please. Read the books. Donโ€™t forget Kirsten, the Swedish immigrant who had to deal with balancing her own culture and learning the english language and customs of her classmates, or Kaya (full name Kaya'aton'my, orย She Who Arranges Rocks) , the brave but careless girl from the Nez Perce tribe, or Josefina, the Mexican girl learning to be a healer. And then there are the later dolls, that kids younger than me would have grown up with (I was just outgrowing American Girl as these came out), like Rebecca, the Jewish girl who dreams of becoming an actress in the budding film industry, orย  Julie, who fights against her schoolโ€™s gender policy surrounding sports in the 70s, orย  Nanea, the Hawaiian girl whose father worked at Pearl Harbor. These books, these characters, are fantastic pictures into life for girls in America throughout the years, they pull no punches with the horrors that these girls had to face in their different time periods, and in many cases I learned more history from these series than social studies at school. And thatโ€™s without even mentioning the โ€œgirl of the yearโ€ series where characters are created in the modern world to help girls deal with issues like friend problems, moving, or bullying. We do NOT disrespect American Girl in this house. American Girl is probably going to be the only exposure young girls are going to get to history from a female perspective. This is actually kind of important considering that in history classes we dont really get that exposure. We dont hear about what women felt and endured during these time periods cause schools are too busy teaching us about what happened from the male perspective, which is not unimportant, but we need both. Girls need both. These books were such a crucial part of my childhood and shaped my love of history, which still ensures today. These books can be a young girlโ€™s first lessons in diversity and cultural awareness (hopefully burying that insensitive โ€œweโ€™re all Americansโ€ tripe) and looking at history from more perspectives than just that taught in school. They also are an example of how women have ALWAYS been part of history, which some people would rather us not believe. I think Kit and Kaya were the newest American Girls when I started โ€œaging outโ€ of the books, but hearing about some of these kinda makes me want to revisit them! I wasnโ€™t gonna say anything, but you know what? Nah. OP (of the tweet thread) was either a actively trying to start shit or is just a huge fucking moron. Probably both. Iโ€™d like to point out that the company that makes American Girl dolls actually doesnโ€™t skimp when doing their research and they donโ€™t make the dolls with the intent to be offensive in any way: I loved American Girl growing up theyโ€™re great role models and history lessons so yeah letโ€™s not cancel this for ignorant reasons : clover11-10: breezeinmonochromenight: star-linedsoul: razzleberryjam: ironwoman359: chaos-in-the-making: smugkoalas: allthefandomss: that-catholic-shinobi: gahdamnpunk: American Girl stories were the best tbh Dude, read the books, she and her mom freed themselves in Book 1.

Thereโ€™s no need to calculate whether I would be throwing away my vote on the candidate that I most agree with if theyโ€™re not from a major party. I can say, I want that independent person to get in, but if not them, give me Big Party A, and if not them, that minor party person is still better that Big Party B, and Iโ€™m not giving any preference to the Lunatic Fringe Party. Our system certainly has some issues still, but I can show up to somewhere nearby, line up for a few minutes (if at all), vote exactly in line with my values (on paper, leaving a paper trail that can be recounted), and then buy a sausage and some home made cupcakes on my way out. A countryโ€™s voting system matters a hell of a lot and every citizen deserves one that makes it easy to vote and results in a government that is representational and accountable. And by the way, one time I had a bad asthma flare-up on Election Day and didnโ€™t make it to my polling station. I got my fine in the mail, I filled out the form explaining why I couldnโ€™t vote, no more fine. I would rather have, you know, expressed my preference for who should run my country, but they were cool with the fact that I couldnโ€™t do it that day. I still donโ€™t like the idea that I have to vote if I donโ€™t want to. Why the hell should that be mandatory?๏ฟผ Because it forces people to participate in deciding how their country is run, which is a good thing. It also forces the government to hear your opinion, which is a good thing. You can still protest the candidates by throwing away your vote, but then you have to acknowledge the fact that you decided to not to care enough to pick your favorite candidate. โ€œBecause it forces people to participate in deciding how their country is run, which is a good thing.โ€>Implying that we actually have any say in how the country is run: lazyshoes: libertarirynn: julad: thisdiscontentedwinter: salparadisewasright: sapphicdalliances: jonpertwee: hamfistedbunvendor: jonpertwee: I feel like this would be a slippery slope towards making it illegal for people to choose to not vote. thatโ€™s already how it is in australia Thatโ€™s just so fucked up. :( Do certain medical conditions exempt you? ?????? why is it be fucked up to have compulsory voting? thatโ€™s the way it is in most democratic countries? itโ€™s a part of being a citizen, like paying taxes and obeying speed limits? the fine for not voting is only like $50 and because of the compulsory voting law, our country bends over backwards to make it accessible: itโ€™s always on a weekend, lasts most of the day, and is set up at schools and community centers so thereโ€™s one within easy reach of almost everybody. you can also mail your ballot or vote early if youโ€™ll be out of the country on the day. like, ITโ€™S EASY TO VOTE, and the penalty isnโ€™t even that ridiculous. i donโ€™t understand why the usa doesnโ€™t have this, except obviously it would make it harder to literally stop minorities from voting.

rubitrightintomyeyes: theonion: Rock Apparently Factors Into Girlfriendโ€™s Shower Routine SEATTLEโ€”Saying he was confused about the full extent of its purpose as well as its overall benefit, local man Jacob Ferris, 25, nonetheless surmised today that the oblong rock located in girlfriend Sarah Milsteinโ€™s shower caddy must somehow factor into her bathing routine, sources confirmed. โ€œI guess at some point while sheโ€™s showering, she rubs a rock on her body,โ€ said Ferris, expressing what he claimed was โ€œthe only possible conclusionโ€ about the light-gray rock in his girlfriendโ€™s bathroom. โ€œI mean, it looks sort of nice, so she could just have it there for decoration or something. But itโ€™s usually right near all the other soaps and her loofah, so I think itโ€™s probably something she actually uses while under the water.โ€ โ€œI really donโ€™t know how it all works,โ€ Ferris added. โ€œAll I know is that in between Sarah getting into the shower and getting out, thereโ€™s a rock involved.โ€ Ferris, who said he was unable to determine exactly when in the showering process the rock first comes into play, told reporters he is equally clueless about what part of the body the rock is used on. In addition, Ferris said he occasionally inspects the roughly 3-ounce object when heโ€™s in Milsteinโ€™s shower, and told reporters that the rock is nearly always wet and is occasionally moved to slightly different spots within the bathtub, leading him to believe that his girlfriend uses it fairly regularly. He also noted his girlfriendโ€™s bathing time never seems particularly longer than the average personโ€™s considering she has added a rock into the mix. Ferris added that all attempts to incorporate the rock into his own shower routine have ultimately been unsuccessful. โ€œI tried rubbing it on my skin once, and it hurt,โ€ Ferris said, concluding that pouring soap and water directly onto the rock neither made it softer nor easier on his skin. โ€œI could maybe see how it could get some dirt off of your body, but it seems too painful to work. Her skin usually looks nice though, so maybe Iโ€™m wrong.โ€ โ€œThere is a chance it could be a hair thing,โ€ Ferris continued. โ€œMaybe she rubs the rock in her hair? I donโ€™t know.โ€ Ferris confirmed he has considered numerous reasons for why his girlfriend uses the rock in the shower, including that she has some type of skin condition, that the rock is some sort of weird tradition her family has, or that everyone uses rocks in the shower and he has been out of the loop the entire time. โ€œIt could be for cleaning the bathtub,โ€ said Ferris, adding he once suspected the rock was a device for making the bathroom smell nice, but then noticed it had no discernible smell whatsoever. โ€œLike every few weekends she scrubs the tub with this rock? I guess I could see Sarah doing that.โ€ While Ferris said he is mostly certain that the rock was initially purchased at a home goods store of some kind, he was not able to completely rule out the possibility it was just a rock that his girlfriend found on the ground and decided to put in her shower. โ€œI wonder if I should put a rock in my shower for when sheโ€™s over here,โ€ said Ferris, who said he once tried to locate a rock at a Bed Bath & Beyond, but left after not wanting to walk up to a sales clerk and ask them where they kept their โ€œshower rocks.โ€ โ€œOr I could just tell her to leave a rock at my place if she wants.โ€ โ€œIโ€™m probably not going to do that,โ€ Ferris added. At press time, a visibly perplexed Ferris had seen the rock sitting in Milsteinโ€™s trashcan and then looked in the shower to see another rock sitting in its place. : rubitrightintomyeyes: theonion: Rock Apparently Factors Into Girlfriendโ€™s Shower Routine SEATTLEโ€”Saying he was confused about the full extent of its purpose as well as its overall benefit, local man Jacob Ferris, 25, nonetheless surmised today that the oblong rock located in girlfriend Sarah Milsteinโ€™s shower caddy must somehow factor into her bathing routine, sources confirmed. โ€œI guess at some point while sheโ€™s showering, she rubs a rock on her body,โ€ said Ferris, expressing what he claimed was โ€œthe only possible conclusionโ€ about the light-gray rock in his girlfriendโ€™s bathroom. โ€œI mean, it looks sort of nice, so she could just have it there for decoration or something.

benteja: holmesandtheroman: madlori: tastefullyoffensive: byย Xergion This is true! The zoo where I volunteer (the illustrious Columbus Zoo & Aquarium) was one of the pioneers of this program. Our zoo is known for raising cheetah cubs. Cheetahs have a terrible infant mortality rate and cubs are often rejected, so we get a lot of cubs to raise from all over the country (other zoos and sanctuaries, mostly). The cubs are placed with a puppy friend when they are wee and small, so they grow up together like littermates. They play together, wrestle, and the dogs (yellow Labs) are so calm, friendly and well-socialized that the cheetahs take behavioral cues from them. When they meet new people, or go into new situations (which they often do, as ambassador animals for cheetah conservation), they check out if their dog friend is feeling chill - which he is - and then they know itโ€™s okay for them to be chill, too. Basically the dog is a service animal for them. The cats need their dog friends less and less as they get older and more comfortable, but they still often hang out as grownups. Our zoo does cheetah runs, where the cheetahs get to chase a lure and show off their speed. Often theyโ€™ll have one of the cheetahs run (we have like twelve cheetah), and then theyโ€™ll have one of the dogs do the run to show how much faster the cats are. People get a kick out of that.

One of the collegeโ€™s traditional songsโ€”which they strategically have students sing during their first weeks as Yalies and then again at the moment weโ€™re conferred our degreesโ€”goes like this:Bright College years, with pleasure rife,The shortest, gladdest years of life;How swiftly are ye gliding by!Oh, why doth time so quickly fly?Et cetera. The first time you sing it, you mumble the words and donโ€™t know a single person around you. The last time you sing it, wearing the mortarboard and gown, youโ€™ve got the lyrics memorized and youโ€™re surrounded by some of the most important people in your life.That summer, with โ€œHow bright will seem, through memโ€™ryโ€™s haze/ Those happy, golden, bygone days!โ€ still ringing in my ears, I started CHECK, PLEASE.ย The comicโ€™s first panels emerged on an ancient laptop, through a borrowed bamboo tablet, and on a free drawing program called gnu-IMPShop.ย I had no plan. I wanted to explore my newfound fascination with hockey and share silly cartoons on Tumblr. But unconsciously, I also wanted to pour the nostalgia of those bright college years into the Haus, Faber, Samwell, and Bittyโ€™s story. I wanted to bottle up those moments where we grow and change and fall down and pick ourselves back up.ย Drawing CHECK, PLEASE was how I revisited those experiences and how I sifted through the bittersweet feeling of concluding something I loved. Perhaps this is why finishing CHECK, PLEASE calls back those same emotions. Just as Bitty would bake affection into a pie, I might have encoded into CHECK, PLEASE the heartfelt fondness I had for my time in college, the love of the friends I made there, and the gratitude I have for my own growth.I have always found it easier to express gratitude face to face. And even though I would not have gotten to meet all of you, the greatest downside of being unable to participate in a book tour is that I canโ€™t say thanks in person. I could write a thousand words, yet they couldnโ€™t replace a high five at a bookstore signing or a handshake at a convention. I could write the blog post to end all blog posts, but itโ€™s not the same as yelling with you about an episode or chatting about a fandom we both happen be in. For me, itโ€™s those moments that somehow equate to my abundant appreciation for you, the reader.I look forward to the day when I can let my actions speak louder than my words!In the meantime: thank you. I am incredibly blessed to get to create a story and then share it. This is all I want to do in life. These characters get to have a readership overflowing with love and enthusiasm for them. This comic, somehow, has found ambassadors. This story gets to be told. Thank you!ย Iโ€™m excited to share with you the unusual, fun, and hopeful narratives Iโ€™m working hard to develop.So with that, Iโ€™ll sign off on the last blog post! Thank you for reading this comic. Thank you for sharing it with friends. Thank you for caring about Bittyโ€™s story and CHECK, PLEASE.Thank you!John J. Johnson.Just kidding, itโ€™s Ngozi. :^) Tee hee.

ups-dogs:On a dark and lonely night in the hills outside of Newberg, Oregonโ€ฆa forlorn, feeble, famished, freezing, four-legged figure falters slowly towards my truck, trembling gingerly on arthritic limbs in the icy winter air.His grey muzzle and sorrowful eyes tell a sad tale of many years of hunger, pain and despair. A faint and sorrowful whimper emits from his throat as he gazes beseechingly at my bountiful box of biscuits, hoping against hope that I might ease his pangs of hunger and grant him one more night of survival by sharing a small morsel of sustenance with him.My heartstrings taut with compassion, I dig deep into my biscuit box and gently place 4 biscuits into his quivering jowls, praying with all my might that I have arrived in time to prevent his imminent starvation.And thenโ€ฆthe magic happens.Like Popeye eating his can of spinach, an incredible transformation suddenly takes place. He is cured! The pain in his limbs is gone! His eyes sparkle! In less than a second, strength and vigor have returned to his formerly weak and malnourished body! In one bound he leaps from the steps of the truck and proceeds to to zoomies all about the yard like a puppy 12 years his junior, his speed turning him into a veritable blur, before running into the house thru his dog door. Through the living room window I see him leap up onto his spot on the couch next to the woodstove, a veritable blizzard of biscuit crumbs flying all over the lap of his human as he chomps happily away at the bounty of goodness that I have bestowed upon him. With tears of joy in my eyes I proceed to drive away, feeling a solemn pride in the knowledge that my generosity has saved this once-suffering dog from what was most certainly an imminent death from starvation. And to those of you who claim that I have merely been bamboozled and bewitched out of biscuits by a canine con artist, I say this; I am a trained professional with years of experience.

Iโ€™m not sure that the people that actually agree to this idea understand that kids would just vote how their parents would because no seventh grader has more than two brain cells. I was in seventh grade when the 2016 election happened, and holy fuck you do not want those kids picking your President, let alone having rights in general So then maybe, as was the point of this post, maybe the court system shouldnโ€™t be executing 7th graders (most of whom are disproportionately black and brown people)?
