school childrens

My grandmother was a children’s book illustrator for a number of years, and, from time to time, she would use my brother and I as models, so occasionally we would pop up:

[The one on the left is me and the right is Green. He looks kinda of… evil?]

[Little Emil looking at Green like, “Bro, chill, it’s just eggs.”]

[Those chairs actually exist, and I still own them.]

[The only inaccuracy is that I spent most Easters bored out of my tiny mind in church wondering when I could switch back into my pants and run around outside.]

“Are You A Feminist?”


I am five years old. My mother just told me to go fetch a sweater because an adult man would be coming over soon, and I need to cover up.

I am seven years old. A boy wouldn’t stop chasing me on the playground and throwing rocks at me. I’m upset. My best friend says it’s because he likes me and she told me boys are mean to girls they like.

I am ten years old. We just had our first health class in school. The teachers were trying to educate us on sexual assault. After class, my friends told me to scream fire instead of rape if I’m ever being attacked, because no one will come if they hear the word rape being screamed.

I am twelve years old. I just got my first period. A pad fell out of my book bag at school and everyone started laughing. Apparently, periods aren’t normal and they should be hidden at all costs.

I am fifteen years old. I’m in the office crying because a boy I don’t know kept following me down the hallway and grabbing my ass even after I told him to stop. The administrator scolds me.
“maybe you shouldn’t be wearing leggings if you don’t want that kind of attention”
she sends me home with a dress code violation. She marked the “distracting” box.

I am seventeen years old. I’ve just been slapped because a boy got angry with me after I wouldn’t let him put his hands down my pants. Apparently, I led him on by letting him copy my math assignment.

I am twenty-one years old. My best friend has bought me special nail polish to wear to the bar. She says it changes color if it’s dipped in a drink that has a date rape drug in it.

I am twenty-three years old. I’m reading this to the first class I will ever teach. A student raises her hand and says, “no offense, but doesn’t this stuff happen to every girl?”


So yes, I am a feminist. And when you ask me why, I will read this to you. Again, and again, and again.

  • Hufflepuff: I don't think you should talk to a child like that.
  • Ravenclaw: Well someone has to prepare them for the real world.

“Was it possible I had been hired not to enlarge children’s power, but to diminish it? That seemed crazy on the face of it, but slowly I began to realize that the bells and the confinement, the crazy sequences, the age segregation, the lack of privacy, the constant surveillance, and all the rest of the national curriculum of schooling were designed exactly as if someone had set out to prevent children from learning how to think and act, to coax them into addiction and dependent behavior."

Betsy DeVos Meets With Trans Students After Dismantling Their Rights
The education secretary was "very respectful," but she didn't have much to say, according to parents.

“The contrast couldn’t be more stark,” Dolan said, comparing her meetings with DeVos and with former Secretary Arne Duncan. “Those were kids who were excited and being seen, being valued, being supported. This was a room of people who had been devastated.”

It’s 2 in the morning. I’m watching a children’s show. And I just ID’d the English voice actor for Hikaru Hitachiin, Todd Haberkorn, as a side character in Miraculous Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir in less than a minute.
