Talking Gender with Tiny Humans

During last week’s lgbtq+ policy meeting, a sentiment came up that I’ve heard many times before:

“How would I explain this transgender stuff to my child? He’s only seven, there’s no way he’d understand!”

‘Concerned parents’ often suggest that transgender identity and gender non-conformity are impossible topics to discuss with a young child.

Here’s the thing: kids are smart, and talking with them about gender is super easy. If you’re not sure where to start, this post is a primer.

RE: lacrosse

PLEASE CONSIDER Scott, Stiles and Kira showing up at Derek’s apartment for pack meeting

(of which I am an even more adamant proponent now that we know that 1. most of the problems the McCall pack runs into are well beyond Deaton’s experience, and 2. the Hale family had a secret vault, what the hell Derek we talked about this, sharing is caring, honesty is the best policy, when are these kids finally going to operate under a full disclosure principle)

smelling of grass and sweat and weary contentment, and there’s something else too, an undercurrent Derek doesn’t recognize but feels to his core. Scott sees his face, misinterprets, says, “Sorry, we showered after practice, but—”

Derek waves him away, tells the three of them to take off their shoes and leave their lacrosse sticks by the door before they get mud all over the place.

The scent lingers after everyone is gone, and Derek sleeps better than he has in months.

It’s not until two weeks later that he realizes what – who – the source of the scent was.

anonymous asked:

Headcanons for how the GOM would go about letting their kids go to school by themselves for the first time?

oooh this is cute! ok, one will be for their reaction of seeing them leave and the other will be the advice they’d give

and i just realized i misinterpreted the request. im so sorry. i made it into their kid going to school for the first time.

AKASHI:

  • He’ll be very proud, feeling his heart bloom with joy as his child takes their first steps into the world. Maybe shed a tear or two. And maybe would send bodyguards to watch over the kids.
  • “Remember that you’re better than everyone else and make good friends. It’s good to start making connections.” or he’ll stick with “Have a wonderful day and please remember to act appropriately.”

AOMINE:

  • Have manly tears slipping out once or twice that you’d have to hug him. He’d ruffle his kid’s hair and urge them to go forward. But he’ll be extremely proud.
  • “Don’t let anyone get you down, bullies suck. If they’re being mean, beat them up.”

KISE:

  • More excited than his own kid to go to school. He might even embarrass the kid once or twice by barging into class to take pictures of them.
  • “Make sure to make lots and lots of friends. Did daddy tell you about the time—“ “Yes, dad, you did.”

KUROKO:

  • So, so happy. But he would stay calm and try not to panic when his kid trips on the way to class. Still, he’s super excited for his kid.
  • “I’m very proud of you for making it this far. Be sure to always stay humble and act nice to everyone.”

MIDORIMA:

  • You kept handing him tissues because apparently he had like a billion twigs in his eyes as he watched his kid walk into the school, ready to start their journey in life.
  • “Did you bring your lucky item? Okay. Good. Don’t let other kids bully you alright. Stand up for yourself. Do your best and God will do the rest.”

MURASAKIBARA:

  • Ruffling his kid’s hair, hugging them, kissing their heads, protecting them. Probably not going to let them go for quite some time and no one can pull him away.
  • “If anyone bothers you, crush them. You’re a great kid. I love you.” He’d start crying and again cling onto his kid.
Can you surf really well, then?”
I looked at Grover, who was trying hard not to laugh.
“Jeez, Nico,” I said. “I’ve never really tried.”
He went on asking questions. Did I fight a lot with Thalia, since she was a daughter of Zeus? (I didn’t answer that one.) If Annabeth’s mother was Athena, the goddess of wisdom, then why didn’t Annabeth know better than to fall off a cliff? (I tried not to strangle Nico for asking that one.) Was Annabeth my girlfriend? (At this point, I was ready to stick the kid in a meat-flavored sack and throw him to the wolves.)

Sometimes as the Doctor, the most memorable moments are not the strongest lines – it’s what he does with his pauses and his changes of tone. He’ll just say ‘Oh good’ or 'You’d better go outside’ in this particular way and it sticks with you far more than the finest scripting.

His Doctor is a completely different character – from any previous Doctor but also from Malcolm. I’ve watched every episode with my three kids – they’ve been amazed by the transformation. The eldest has seen Malcolm Tucker but the others just know Peter from when he’s been over to the house.
He took us all on set while filming – which was great for the two younger children especially but frankly it was pretty good for me. He gave us the full tour and seemed to know how it all works.

He’s funny in a bamboozled way. And that allows Clara more space so they’ve become a proper, classic double act. He’s also the first Doctor to give off that air of the tremendous responsibility – which you never quite saw before.
He has great gravitas, but he can flick in a second to moments of beautiful slapstick.
The recent episode featuring 2D creatures where he was trapped in a tiny Tardis, was a perfect moment of silly comedy that it would have been easy to mess up. Then the episode ended with him addressing those creatures – 'This planet is under my protection.’ It was a tremendously cathartic moment for the Doctor, I think, but it’s a hard combination for an actor to play, and he nailed it.

(Capaldi running in the role) It’s always hilarious. Stop it, pause it and go back. It’ll be worth it every time.

—  Armando Iannucci in this week’s Radio Times, talking about how his friend and former colleague Peter Capaldi has transformed himself brilliantly into the role of the Doctor.

Cherishing every word - this issue is utterly worthy of reading and collecting.

I feel as though people may have misinterpreted this line ever so slightly.  I don’t think Shadow is trying to say that friendship is pathetic.  I think he means to say SONIC’S FRIENDS are the ones that are pathetic.

Look at this from Shadow’s perspective.  Who are Sonic’s friends?

  • Tails: a kid whose ‘blindly’ devoted to the Blue Blur.
  • Knuckles: a punch happy hulk a few doughnuts short of a bakers dozen.
  • Amy: a condescending know-it-all who corrects everyone to constantly reassure herself she’s smarter than she really is.
  • Sticks: the rabid sociopath.

Yeah, you say these guys are going to save the world, I’d be a tad skeptical too.

Plus, if Shadow did make friends, he’d probably boast how his friends are way better than Sonic’s.

Wherein bb!Cloud is a bamf who’s more friendly with the lethal local wildlife than his neighbours.

Nibelheim is the place that left a boy injured to the point of immobility on a monster infested mountain because they jumped to conclusions about why another kid went up there and was also hurt. I mean if that’s an example of how he’s treated then no wonder this kid develops anger and self-worth issues

5SOS Preference (They grab your boobs)

5 Seconds of Summer Preference

Requested: Yes

Writer: Holly Clifford

Michael: “HAHA! I KNEW I WOULD BEAT YOU!” You scream at Michael. You two were playing a game of Fifa and you somehow managed to beat him, he was always better than you though. “No fair Y/N, I want a rematch!” he pouts. “Someone just doesn’t want to lose now does he? Fine!” you giggle at how he acts like a little kid. “If I win I get to touch your boobs!” “God your such a pervert..” Its been five minutes and both of you haven’t said a word yet, you guys were so into the game. “STOP HITTING MY CONTROLLER!” You say while smacking his hand away, which distracted you and Michael won. “I WIN! I WIN!” “Thats because you cheated.” You stick your tongue out at him. Out of no where he comes up to you and grabs both of your boobs. He has the biggest smirk on his face, while your just sitting there awkwardly. “Ah-em, I think thats enough now babe.” You say after 20 seconds. “Sorry I just like your boobs.” “Uhg, weirdo.”

Luke: You and Luke were snuggled up on the couch watching scary movies while in was storming outside, you liked that kind of stuff but he didn’t. “Don’t go in there you stupid fuck.” He whispers to himself. “Hun, you do know they can’t hear you.” “Yes. Yes I do but I would get out of the house right away.” All of a sudden theres a loud thunder and its all black. Luke yelps and makes you jump. “Aw shit the powers out.” You rest your head under Lukes chin. “Uhh Lucas why are you holding my breast?” You realized hes holding onto them tightly. The power comes back on right when you say that. He quickly takes them off and is blushing like crazy. “Oh my god Y/N I’m sorry, I just… Got scared” You kiss him and chuckle a little. “Don’t worry, I’m here!” “Good!” He says and wraps his arms around you. After that you decided to watch something less scary for him.

Calum: “I’m sooooooo bored. Come on lets play something guys.” Calum says to the guys. “Lets play truth or dare!” Ashton shouts. The others agree but you’re a little worried. “Come on Y/N are you gonna play?” “I don’t know if I should trust you guys.” “You’re no fun” Calum says pouting. “Nope! I’ll just watch Youtube, have fun!” You kiss Calums cheek. “Meanie!” He pokes your nose. About 10 minutes later you were so caught up in watching Pewdiepie, you didn’t even hear what they were talking about. “Calum, truth or dare?” Michael asks. “Dare.” “I dare you to grabs Y/N’s boobs.” Calum laugh a little while nodding. “Thats an easy one.” He gets up from the floor and jumps on your legs. “Oi! I was watching something.” He doesn’t respond, but grabs your boobs. “Really? This was one of your dares?” You roll your eyes at him. “It is and I like it.” Hes giving you that sexy look. “Shut up and go play your games” You playfully slap his chest. For the rest of the night, he kept getting dared to grab your boobs or something like that.

Ashton: “I swear, these boys make the worst messes.” You say to yourself. Ashton and the boys had a little sleep over at the house you two shared, and they would always ruin the house. Building a fort, leaving food left out, and a lot more. You made some of the messes though, accidently spilling soda, or dropping some chip crumbs. You hoped he would be awake earlier to help, but he always slept in. “God dammit, why wont the root beer come out? Fuck me.” You feel a pair of hands wrap around you and grab your boobs. “What the hell?” You turn around and meet a sleepy, sexy Ashton. “Sure I’ll fuck you.” He gave you a smirk and kissed you. “Oh shush!” You get on your tip toes to kiss him. “Babe.” You say. “Yes?” “You’re still holding my boobs.” “I know.” You run your hands through his messy hair while looking deep in his eyes. “Well you know what we could do?” You say winking at him. “What?” “We could… clean this damn mess up!” You take his hands off your breast and hand him a sponge. “B-But!” NO, we can frickle frackle later.. Now help!” You say with a big smile. “Fine, but you better be ready, Y/N” You laugh knowing whats gonna happen after this.

A/N: Heyy! Sorry if this sucks haha. But I hope you like it ☻ᴥ☻

tbh I just kind of want to write morally ambiguous baby Tony who just started to put his toe into the whole villain game and got caught. Only he ends up in the academy to rehabilitate rather than Fury just sticking him in a cell to get angrier and more motivated to do better when he escapes. So then you have Tony meeting the other kids and forming bonds and such. Plus you know ample excuse for protective Tony over his new nice friends who aren’t out to screw him over.

I’d do a separate reaction for each but who are we kidding here, ALL 7 would be a blast to be with in an arcade! Just imagine, we’d have Bobby being loud af running to all the games as if he has like 10 hands to play all of them at once, Junhoe would be annoyed at Bobby and show off that he is better at the games than he is when in reality he sucks at them. Hanbin would be the actual 5 yr old that he is, sticking with Jinhwan probably, being all cute. Yunhyeong and Donghyuk will probably be playing against each other at some sort of racing game and then catch Chanwoo at the nearest convince store desperately trying to find choco cones
