saying feminism is unnecessary because you don’t feel oppressed is like saying fire extinguishers are unnecessary because your house isn’t on fire

nonvolleyball said: hey, thanks for the heads-up about your dedicated blog site--I've been reading you on LJ since...2003(? I I've also completely forgotten how I originally found your blog). but I've since bookmarked your permanent home, & thus can avoid freaking out if/when the LJ goes dark someday.
I started on OpenDiary.com back in like 99 and it recently, and very suddenly, was given up and closed down. I didn’t log in every day so I only had like four days of notice (as far as I can tell most users got a few weeks?), and that was rather sad even though I saw it coming. Blogging community sites aren’t as super profitable/popular as they once were.

Dear future child
If it’s 3am and you find yourself in a world of complete despair
Please do not turn to strangers on the internet for solace as I did
Please climb onto my bed
And I will hold you until the demons sleep
If it is Thursday morning and you are too sad to move
I won’t force you
I will buy ice cream and we will watch your favourite tv show and I will remind you of your importance
If you feel as if you have no purpose
I will remind you that you were created entirely with love and every pain you feel, I feel too
When you’re sure you can’t go on anymore
I will tell you that when I was 21 I searched for peace at the bottom of a vodka bottle chased by a bottle of pain killers
But that five years later
When you were placed in my arms in the delivery room
I realised that you were why I had been holding on
Without realising it, you saved me, do you know how amazing that is?
So if you ever feel like grabbing that vodka bottle, put it down, we will get in the car and I will drive until the sky turns magenta
I will show you how the sun rises every morning to encourage you to rise too
Sweetheart I refuse to be unaware of your sufferings
As my mother was to mine.
Reblogging because this is the relationship my mother and I had - still have - and it saved my life more times than I can count.
I am in my 30’s now, and I sat down at my kitchen table not 24 hours ago and cried with my mom about bad dreams, and she still teared up to see me hurting. I want to be this parent. Everyone should want to be this parent.
This is the funniest thing to ever happen to Canada
How is it that I made it into my 30’s without realizing the potential of this joke as a Canadian?!
