Beautiful, Blessed, and Chihuahua: Kaytlyn Marie Stone Great Pyrenees and Their Crazy Antics 3 hrs My beautiful boy!

People freak the fuck out if you don鈥檛 enforce human gender roles on dogs. They get fucking belligerent. I work in a pet store and the number of times people have gotten LIVID with me for not just automatically assuming their dog not only required but personally wanted the most stringent enforcement of human gender norms is mindblowing. People demand dog shampoos that smell聽鈥渕asculine鈥 because聽鈥淗e鈥檚 a boy he doesn鈥檛 want to smell like flowers鈥 even though he鈥檚 a dog and if he had his way he would smell like duck poop. And those shampoos exist! That鈥檚 the worst part! There鈥檚 enough demand for dog shampoo that smells like Axe body spray that they exist and they sell well. Or the seemingly nice old lady that shouted聽鈥淧INK! OBVIOUSLY! SHE鈥橲 GIRL SHE HATES OTHER COLORS!鈥 at me when i asked what color harness she wanted for her lapdog. Even though her dog can鈥檛 actually see the color pink and does not now and will not ever give a single flying dog fart what color her harness is. Even our pets have to deal with our gender socialization bullshit. I work in a pet store. Can confirm. If I don鈥檛 know the sex of the dog, and say, I pick up a blue lead to show the customer it鈥檚 different uses, I鈥檒l get 鈥渨ell she鈥檚 a girl, so鈥 and I鈥檓 like? Um? I鈥檓 just showing you it鈥檚 functions, there鈥檚 like 20 different colours here you can choose from? And my manager wants us to separate boys coats/accessories and girl coats/accessories for accessibility for the customers鈥︹. like鈥︹.? ??????? They鈥檙e dogs. This. Is. BULLSHIT.Also, when I worked at a grooming salon, one groomer would bring in her family鈥檚 dogs. Poms, the lot of them. They all got bows. Even the boy. He was a goddamn beautiful dog.Customers got mad. About a boy dog wearing bows. A boy dog THAT WAS NOT THEIR DOG wearing bows. Let that sink in. Actually just like a week ago someone got testy with me because I put my female chihuahua in a blue polo shirt and they were like 鈥渟he鈥檚 a girl she looks like a boy in that鈥 and I was just like鈥 She鈥檚 a dog. I am so tempted to put the biggest fucking pink bow I can find on my dog and parade him around the neighborhood.聽 Fuck this gender roles bullshit.聽 He鈥檚 a 12 year old dumbass who sometimes falls down the ONE (1) step on our porch because he gets too excited and forgets that he has back legs that don鈥檛 work right (vet says it鈥檚 a degenerative nerve thing, common in older labs).聽 HE WOULD GLADLY ROLL IN HIS OWN SHIT IF WE LET HIM - HE COULDN鈥橳 GIVE TWO FUCKS IF HE IS IN A BOW OR A BANDANA, I PROMISE. My puppy wears bandanas sometimes, including a really cute pink one with white hearts that I love. One time this old lady at the park was absolutely BAFFLED that I would put a pink thing on my Boy Dog. Literally accused me of trying to confuse people, asked why I鈥檇 put that on him. I was just??? It鈥檚 cute and I like it the puppy really couldn鈥檛 give less of a shit My cat Duarte is male and he wears a pink collar with a tag that says聽鈥淏eautiful Angel Princess鈥 on the side that doesn鈥檛 have my contact info, because he鈥檚 my beautiful angel princess obv, and it throws the vet staff for a LOOP every time People get upset when I walk boy dogs with my hot pink leash (because I lose leashes, so I like them highly visible.Like, one, maybe this dog has Victorian gender norms, and considers pink very masculine? two: it鈥檚 not the dog鈥檚 leash, it鈥檚 mine. People putting gender norms on house pets is wild. They鈥檙e just living cuddle bears they don鈥檛 have gender. The person who grooms our dog always puts little bows on his harness. Adorable. OH NO, NUGGET! TAKE THAT SHIRT OFF. THAT鈥橲 NOT M A N L Y, NUGGET! OH NO HE鈥橲 WEARING AIRPODS HE CAN鈥橳 HEAR ME OH NO!聽 Oh n o oh gfpd I鈥檓 shahmking I m cr yjiing i was so fucking angry reading this post and then you blessed me with nugget

We鈥檒l figure out how later on.鈥 I guess we don鈥檛 want to talk about this part but part of the reason that classroom is as diverse as it is is that all the White people pulled their kids out of such schools long ago. In fact white people will run to a whole new zip code as soon as the neighborhood starts to diversify. It鈥檚 called White Flight, and while I don鈥檛 know how often that happened in Canada, in the US it is very well documented how much White people have always hated diversity, and ran away from it at every opportunity. It鈥檚 not genocide if the reason that classroom is Brown is because all the White People ran away! YUP. An organization in my city (which is 55% Black in the city proper) recently analyzed the racial data of the public schools, and found that the whitest schools are about 70% white with a Black population of about 7% on average (the other +/- 23% is predominantly Asian in those schools, with Latino numbers close to the Black numbers). Some look at that data and say, well, 70% white reflects the population! But it doesn鈥檛. Not when you consider that a full 50% of white kids in the metro area (when you include the suburbs, it鈥檚 about 65% white) are not in the public school system. So, if 50% of white kids are not in the public school system, an integrated school would have about 30% white kids, not 70%. Schools with 30% white kids and 70% black, Latino and Asian kids are considered 鈥渂ad鈥 schools, regardless of facilities, teachers, and achievements. When you factor in the fact that nearly all of those white kids are working class or poor, these are considered straight up Black schools, no different from schools that are 90% Black. No one wants to say it, but the undesirability of these schools 鈥 schools that, today, have things like Innovation centers, engineering labs, pro level TV studios, robotics labs, commercial kitchens and even working farms, things that many private and predominantly white charters don鈥檛 have 鈥 is painfully clear. It鈥檚 not about facilities or programs. The most innovative schools in the city serve majority minority student bodies. Even objectively good schools, if they serve students that are Black, ESL, IDD, and low income, are not fit for middle class to wealthy white kids according to their parents. And I live in a very Blue state. I know very 鈥渓iberal鈥 parents who wouldn鈥檛 dream of sending their kids to a non-charter or non white segregated public school. It鈥檚 not 鈥済enocide.鈥 Far from it. It鈥檚 voluntary white segregation.
