Unpopular opinion time: A lot of the hate Ayn Rand gets is because she was a womyn. The shit she says about self interest actually is very similar to other theories men have put forward and it is very telling that that is the thing she is most hated for. The number of “Ayn Rand hates children” jokes I see is just gross because like, when does a man ever get that shit? She is called rude, unemotional, ugly, unloving and basically a failed womyn by leftist men. And this is obvious misogyny? A million men advocate for the free market and of course Ayn Rand is the one that is hated because she was a womyn who interrupts men in interviews and advocates self interest!
At the end of the day a womyn advocating self interest and relationships based not on self sacrifice but on what you want and get fulfillment from is terrifying to leftist men because…well, what would that actually mean for womyn?
Realizing that I don’t want or need you anymore is a beautiful thing. I don’t survive through your compliments or compulsively check to see if you’ve texted me. Your opinion of me no longer makes or breaks my day. I don’t need you anymore. I don’t want you, at least not as a lover, either. It’s beautiful.
They didn’t mind. My mom honestly just said ‘oh, is that it?’, as if it was an everyday thing.
I had panicked about telling them for WEEKS.
And they didn’t even scream or shout. They just said it was alright and that it’s something completely normal, and that as long as I’m happy they’re happy too… and honestly, I’m sad there aren’t more parents like mine.
They’re so open, and don’t care about anyone’s gender or sexuality, as long as the person isn’t rude, they won’t be either.
