It’s funny how people think that if you’re celibate/ waiting for marriage that it means you’re automatically saving yourself for some man
Instead of seeing it as giving your body to God
And it’s funny how they make that assumption and insist that a woman who decides not to have sex is focusing too much on men, when that very assumption means they literally are making the center of a woman’s choice to maintain chastity as a way to get closer to God
But I digress
Thanks to those who commented on my post yesterday about extended breastfeeding, you’re sweet 💘 My MIL just has me down, go figure. We got some packages from her and one had tons of bottles in it for T. I called to thank her and she said “I figured you’d be needing some since it’s about time we get that baby off your breast don’t you think?” And when I said “Well I’m hoping to go at least a year” (hopefully more but I didn’t say that). And she loudly scoffs and replies “You really want to be one of those woman who breastfeeds their toddlers? It’s weird. You need to get that baby on a bottle. Plus the faster you get her off your breast, the faster you can get her out of your room and into her nursery where she belongs!” (I’ve mentioned how against room sharing she is too.) Ugh, it’s just like every parenting choice she has a problem with. She’s also against rear-facing past a year and a half/two years (two years is the LEGAL requirement btw, in my state), and this is the same woman who got drunk and screamed at me saying “You young mothers just don’t try hard enough to breastfeed, and go to other options because you’re too lazy to try.” (I was still pregnant, had all intentions to EBF, hadn’t even had the chance to try yet) That was in reference to my SIL who formula fed and her cousin who exclusively pumped. So she both screams at me for “not trying hard enough to breastfeed (while still pregnant) and gets irritated that I’m "STILL” breastfeeding (at barely 3 months.) I can’t win??
Okay so you know that trope in fics where after Harry comes out, Ron asks him if he ever looked at him that way? Usually his response is relief but like, what if it wasn’t? What if it went like…
Ron: What do you mean you’ve never?
Harry: Well, you’re like my brother. It would be too weird.
Ron: Not even once?
Ron: But you’ve thought about Malfoy?
Harry: Um, recently, yeah.
Ron: I’m gonna need a 20 inch essay on what Malfoy has that i don’t.
Harry: It’s not like that! Hermione, help me out here.
Ron: Is it the hair?
Hermione: I doubt that’s it, he used to like Ginny. Maybe it’s more about posture.
Harry: *hitting his head to the desk and groaning*
Ron: I’m taller than he is Harry and he’s a bit skinny to be honest. I have more bulk, you know? Wait, where are you going? I’m a bloody catch, come back!
Hermione, snickering: There there, Ronald. I know you are.
