men and children

anonymous asked:

my mom just said that men can't love their children as much as women cuz like, birth and stuff. i sorta understand what she was saying but it was super sexist imo

That is absolutely sexist, and also just false. Some fathers are far better, more fit parents than the mother. The mothers are always favoured though even in those cases and the fathers are treated as incapable. Many women are incapable unfit mothers and many fathers are perfectly capable and can and do easily love their kids the same. I dont know why people believe that stuff

I love that video of Billie hugging the little girl and signing her jacket because there are grown men and children crying and the woman behind the camera sounds like she might be dying and imagine being so loved that your very presence causes people you’ve never met before to emotionally collapse

Martin Bryant (b. 7 May 1967) was an Australian mass murderer who perpetrated the Port Arthur massacre in Port Arthur, Tasmania, Australia on 28 April 1996. He shot and killed 35 men, women, and children in the vicinity and injured 23 more before his arrest. The following morning, Bryant was captured by police officers, and on 22 November 1996, Bryant was sentenced to 35 life sentences for the fatalities plus 1,035 years for the charges of attempted murder and grievous bodily harm for those who were shot but not killed. He is currently housed in the maximum-security portion of the medium to maxiumum-security Risdon Prison Complex near Hobart, Tasmania. He is never to be released, as he has no possibility of parole.

Preceding Bryant’s guilty plea at his November 1996 hearing, a court-appointed psychiatrist named Ian Sale analyzed Bryant and diagnosed him with Asperger’s syndrome, as well as a mix of conduct disorder and attention-deficit hyperactive disorder. It was also noted that he was socially and intellectual impaired and that his full-scale IQ was tested at a low 66, placing him at a mental age of 11 years in the 10th percentile, meaning that about 90% of 11 year old children would score higher than Bryant.

Following the most deadly mass murder in Australia’s history, and one of the deadliest mass murders in modern history, Australia placed restrictions on access to semi-automatic center-fire assault rifles such as the Colt AR-15 and automatic weapons such as the L1A1 Self-Loading Rifle, both of which were utilized by Bryant during his killing spree.

I want to abolish God. Free all the slaves that operate under his spell. Fuck on the alter of a church. And kill all the clergy men who abused the young children who were forced into a world they didnt choose but were born into. They tell me I’ll burn in hell but this is hell. I already burn.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

We throw around the word never likes its nothing but a small rose petal. The word never is a doubled edged sword. On one side it says ‘I will never leave you’ and on the other it says ‘I will never love you.’
