smitethepatriarchy: bpdcalvinfischoeder: zakbaganses: jazzisback: sauvamente: Okay but how is this our problem? What’s the context? Thank you, like what does this have to do with me? I’m supposed to be considerate of what here, a lack of socialization? You’re supposed to be aware that some people were raised to be tolerated and that transfers into their adult life. Always being alone as a child doesn’t help you grow into a social adult. It leads you to be friends with people you believe are your friends but are only tolerating you. It leads you to believe that the people who love you and are around you are only tolerating you because you’re around. It feels scary to ask people for anything because you’re afraid they’ll give you what you want only to get you away from them. It makes you feel unlovable, unsocial, and intolerable to the people you love and should know, love you. This is also something that tends to happen to children of resentment; kids who were born to parents who had kids because they were expected to, or any other reason besides wanting kids unconditionally. It’s a very lonely, loveless childhood. It’s a childhood full of you trying to tell your parents about problems and they brush you off, or wanting to talk about something you like and you get “thats nice honey but could you -insert excuse to get you away from them-” You constantly second guess peoples motives. You don’t believe anyone could genuinely want to help you. You see yourself as a bother. You don’t trust people when they do nice things for you because you think theyre just trying to placate you and make you go away. Everyone is only doing nice things for you to be polite, not because theyre a nice person or they care about you. And usually this kind of childhood is accompanied by emotional abuse. Your parents tolerate you, but they would really rather you not be around. And kids aren’t stupid. They know. And it hurts them. It hurt me so much. You grow up believing no one would ever actually love you. Some people really just don’t give a fuck about anyone but themselves to the point that they get offended when you ask them to be aware that many individuals had shitty childhoods. : Tweet t1 DickMonger Retweeted Slim Dollars @SlimDollars some people wasnt raised. they was tolerated.. sat in front of a tv and given chicken nuggets and capri suns they whole childhood... we gotta really be mindful of that 4/2/18, 7:59 AM 2,085 Retweets 3,100 Likes smitethepatriarchy: bpdcalvinfischoeder: zakbaganses: jazzisback: sauvamente: Okay but how is this our problem?

astronomically-androngynous: sounddesignerjeans: princess-mint: alarajrogers: niambi: I’m???? Oh my God this actually explains so much. So there’s a known thing in the study of human psychology/sociology/what-have-you where men are known to, on average, rely entirely on their female romantic partner for emotional support. Bonding with other men is done at a more superficial level involving fun group activities and conversations about general subjects but rarely involves actually leaning on other men or being really honest about emotional problems. Men use alcohol to be able to lower their inhibitions enough to expose themselves emotionally to other men, but if you can’t get emotional support unless you’re drunk, you have a problem. So men need to have a woman in their lives to have anyone they can share their emotional needs and vulnerabilities with. However, since women are not socialized to fear sharing these things, women’s friendships with other women are heavily based on emotional support. If you can’t lean on her when you’re weak, she’s not your friend. To women, what friendship is is someone who listens to all your problems and keeps you company. So this disconnect men are suffering from is that they think that only a person who is having sex with you will share their emotions and expect support. That’s what a romantic partner does. But women think that’s what a friend does. So women do it for their romantic partners and their friends and expect a male friend to do it for them the same as a female friend would. This fools the male friend into thinking there must be something romantic there when there is not. This here is an example of patriarchy hurting everyone. Women have a much healthier approach to emotional support – they don’t die when widowed at nearly the rate that widowers die and they don’t suffer emotionally from divorce nearly as much even though they suffer much more financially, and this is because women don’t put all their emotional needs on one person. Women have a support network of other women. But men are trained to never share their emotions except with their wife or girlfriend, because that isn’t manly. So when she dies or leaves them, they have no one to turn to to help with the grief, causing higher rates of death, depression, alcoholism and general awfulness upon losing a romantic partner.  So men suffer terribly from being trained in this way. But women suffer in that they can’t reach out to male friends for basic friendship. I am not sure any man can comprehend how heartbreaking it is to realize that a guy you thought was your friend was really just trying to get into your pants. Friendship is real. It’s emotional, it’s important to us. We lean on our friends. Knowing that your friend was secretly seething with resentment when you were opening up to him and sharing your problems because he felt like he shouldn’t have to do that kind of emotional work for anyone not having sex with him, and he felt used by you for that reason, is horrible. And the fact that men can’t share emotional needs with other men means that lots of men who can’t get a girlfriend end up turning into horrible misogynistic people who think the world owes them the love of a woman, like it’s a commodity… because no one will die without sex. Masturbation exists. But people will die or suffer deep emotional trauma from having no one they can lean on emotionally. And men who are suffering deep emotional trauma, and have been trained to channel their personal trauma into rage because they can’t share it, become mass shooters, or rapists, or simply horrible misogynists. The only way to fix this is to teach boys it’s okay to love your friends. It’s okay to share your needs and your problems with your friends. It’s okay to lean on your friends, to hug your friends, to be weak with your friends. Only if this is okay for boys to do with their male friends can this problem be resolved… so men, this one’s on you. Women can’t fix this for you; you don’t listen to us about matters of what it means to be a man. Fix your own shit and teach your brothers and sons and friends that this is okay, or everyone suffers. The next time a guy says, “What? You don't want to be my friend?” I’ll text him this and then ask if he really wants to be friends or just have another potential girlfriend. y’all I am living for these analyses where the new way to fight the patriarchy is to teach men to love each other and themselves Im a communication student and can confirm the above is absolutely 100% accurate and it’s called agentic vs communal friendship theorized by Steven McCornack : Sprint Wi-Fi 2:25 PM Tweet tl saint lil rogue Retweeted Noob Saibot @Mommaafro So a woman's idea of being friends is being friends?

Today......my daughter stole something. Yes, my sweet, perfect, and innocent little 4 year old girl took something from a store that she did not pay for..... Now, to be fair, this thing that she stole couldn’t have been more than a dollar....two dollars max, but I found myself conflicted about what to do. Should I let it slide like no big deal? Should I throw it away and simply tell her why that is wrong? Or......should I do the hard thing and be the parent even though I knew it would be hard, embarrassing, and emotionally difficult for my daughter? You see in 2018 we have too many parents that care too much about being their children’s friend. They care too much about shielding them from the real world and real consequences....... It’s not my job to be my daughters friend....it’s my job to be her PARENT! So we got in the car and went back to the store. I held my daughters hand as we walked back to the same cash register that we had just been to, and I stood by her as her little hand sat that tiny little toy back on the counter. I helped her deal with her little tears and walked her through the correct way of saying she was sorry and explaining why this was a big deal that can not be repeated. I watched as other people looked at us....and how some had some resentment towards me for doing this at all. I also watched as my daughter learned a lesson.....I watched as she grew just a little at that moment.....I watched her do the right thing! She won’t be little like this for long.....so I choose to love her enough to teach her what a good person is and does. I am a Father......a Daddy.....a Teacher✔️ The END *For my 4 year old daughter doing the right thing and standing up for what’s right......that little toy still came home with us.

In any given day, our subconscious mind processes around 60,000 thoughts.

When we focus on negative thoughts such as fear, anger, and resentment, we get more of the same. In fact, we live in a constant state of lack, wondering why we can never achieve the things we believe we want to achieve so badly in life. However, when we live an abundant life, steeped in positivity, moving away from fear, anger, and resentment, and moving towards love, growth, contribution, and forgiveness, we get more of the same.

todayinhistory: January 1st 1804: Haitian independence On this day in 1804 French rule officially ended in Haiti, making the country the world’s first black republic. As a French colony, Haiti was largely populated with slaves and ruled by a slaveholding minority, and resentment brewed among the enslaved black majority. Inspired by the French Revolution of 1789, white planters began to push for independence from French rule as they felt underrepresented and over-taxed, thus setting the stage for an independence movement. In 1791, in one of the most remarkable events in history, slaves in Saint-Domingue (the colonial name for Haiti) seized this momentum and began a revolution which became the only successful slave rebellion in history, as it toppled the white minority rule and led to the abolition of slavery in the country. The revolution was led by former slave Toussaint l'Ouverture, nicknamed ‘the Black Napoleon’, until his death in a French prison in 1803. After a bitter struggle which saw many thousands lose their lives, the slaves of Haiti achieved their goal, defeating the French and seeing Haiti become an independent nation at the beginning of 1804. Independence was declared, and the nation was renamed ‘Haiti’, by military general and former slave Jean-Jacques Dessalines, who replaced l'Ouverture at the head of the revolution. The success of the Haitian revolution challenged the remaining slave systems of the world, especially that of the United States, as it refuted racist pro-slavery ideology that suggested African slaves were content in bondage and were incapable of political agency. : FRANCE MILITAIRE Incendie de la Plaine du Cap Massacre des Blancs par le Noirs todayinhistory: January 1st 1804: Haitian independence On this day in 1804 French rule officially ended in Haiti, making the country the world’s first black republic.

The revolution was led by former slave Toussaint l'Ouverture, nicknamed ‘the Black Napoleon’, until his death in a French prison in 1803. After a bitter struggle which saw many thousands lose their lives, the slaves of Haiti achieved their goal, defeating the French and seeing Haiti become an independent nation at the beginning of 1804. Independence was declared, and the nation was renamed ‘Haiti’, by military general and former slave Jean-Jacques Dessalines, who replaced l'Ouverture at the head of the revolution. The success of the Haitian revolution challenged the remaining slave systems of the world, especially that of the United States, as it refuted racist pro-slavery ideology that suggested African slaves were content in bondage and were incapable of political agency.

No wifi =abuse?: Me as a parent Today's WiFi password can be unlocked by texting a photo of a clean kitchen to mom. Said photograph MUST contain one box of crackers on the counter by the stove (to prevent re-using any previous photos). Thank you for playing. May the odds be ever in your favor. Love, Mom sonansu This is such an abuser-disguised-as-a-quirky-parent vibe it literally makes me sick 2 look at lol eclecticnerd33 I am going to talk about this for a minute, because yeah I think OP really nails something here. A lot of really crappy parenting is often upheld as a cute or funny thing, and a lot of people in the comments are shitting on OP because they cannot imagine how t could possibly be abusive. It's hard because you cannot see the rest of the context, but this could very well be an abuse tactic, and overall is just a crappy thing to do to a kid. Plus it probably doesn't work and has negative consequences for the overall relationship l am going to address several things off of the bat. I am not saying that having your kid clean the kitchen is abusive, what I am saying is establishing a pattern of taking away good things preemptively to enforce·good" behavior Is a bad parenting tactic that could toe the line to abuse. Especially the way it's worded as if it's a common tactic (need for a new photo), overall this is authoritarian, allows no room for autonomy, and doesn't even really get at why the kitchen should be and needs to cleaned today (what you actually want your ki to learn in the long run). There are better ways new photo), overall this is authoritarian, allows no room for autonomy, and doesn't even really get at why the kitchen should be and needs to be cleaned today (what you actually want your kid to learn in the long run). There are better ways to communicate the message of shared responsibility than through the creation of social isolation (and yes this is social isolation, wifi is used in how humans particularly young people communicate with their friends in real life and online nowadays) The major point I want to emphasize is that this type of action establishes a precedent and a set of emotions in a kid and none of those emotions are positive. It shows that important and vital things will be withheld, potentially without warning. It tells the kid they do not have a say in how their environment is structured, it tells them they do not have the right to set their own schedule, overall it breeds a sense of incompetence in themselves and resentment towards that authority that doesn't really consider their desire and needs I reflect a lot on parenting, and the best parenting doesnt demand a kid do something or else, it gives a kid the tools so they can get to that answer on their own, and when they do both of you will be better served. The kid will have more motivation to get it done, and there isnta building sense of resentment. Yeah this method is hard work, a are situations and kids it doesn't work for, but this post out of context does give me bad parery kid they do not have a say in how their environment Is structured, it tells them they do not have the right to set their own schedule, overall it breeds a sense of incompetence in themselves and resentment towards that authority that doesn't really consider their desire and needs I reflect a lot on parenting, and the best parenting doesnt demand a kid do something or else, it gives a kid the tools so they can get to that answer on their own, and when they do both of you will be better served.

Yeah this method is hard work, and there are situations and kids it doesn't work for, but seeing this post out of context does give me bad parenting/ potential abuse vibes sonansu Hey! Thanks a ton. Since making this comment offhandedly, I have gotten over fifty Anon messages telling me I'm a spoiled brat, that my abuse is fake, and that should take my own life and stop being a burden on my abusive parents. People perceived my comment as "lol this is inherently abusive" rather than the "man this gives me the Willie's cause it's resonant to my own abuse. intended In that time, few people have stood up for me even tried to understand my side. Thank you fo having compassion for an abuse survivor instead of "lol this inherently abusive" rather than comment as is the "man this gives me the Willie's cause it's resonant to my own abuse. intended In that time, few people have stood up for me or even tried to understand my side. Thank you for having compassion for an abuse survivor instead of invalidating her. It legitimately means a lot to me. hearth-fucker Yeah this creeps me out on so many levels. It's different from the stereotypical picture of abuse but that doesn't make it any less abusive and it's important to look at this sort of controlling behavion and call it abuse toO horrorjapan f you think helping your mother who likely provides for you, cooks for you, is clearly out working to keep a roof over your head is 'abuse' grow the fuck up. I can't wait until the real world eats you entitled shits alive. Source: quotethatword #fucking this 181,908 notes No wifi =abuse?
