What about a Sormik Highschool AU with jock Sorey who plays quarterback and is a natural athlete for outdoor sports, is super good in history and fencing and plays the violin.

Then you have Mikleo who is a talented ballet dancer and figure skater and is head of the archery club who plays the piano and is also good in history.

They suck in other subjects but they pull through every sem thanks to their ‘tutors’ and sorey and mikleo are just never apart.

And when someone mocks the indecency of the jocks, mikleo would be the first to elaborate their hygienic routine and hardworking attitude and if someone mocked the dancers or any of the arts students, sorey would be like “HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO A BALLET CLASS?? I SWEAT THE SAME OR MORE IN AN HOUR WORTH OF BALLET CLASS THAN I DO AFTER A GAME”

And whenever mikleo comes by the locker rooms to pick sorey up, he’ll break down everyone’s injuries and how to heal them and the team slowly sees why sorey loves mikleo so much he’s so caring and thoughtful and he even made them drinks during the finals. Likewise, when Mikleo lead the ballet show and he couldn’t find an appropriate partner, sorey would gladly step in and his team came to their practice to laugh at sorey but instead they were at awe at how difficult ballet actually is and how mikleo still kept going even after sorey was lying on the floor exhausted. They never questioned Mikleo again.

And after seeing the dedication and smoothness of sorey’s moves as mikleo’s partner, the arts department started being more mellow with the jocks and there’s just this mutual understanding between both parties and its all good because of sorey and mikleo.

I love them so much help
(Also they are volunteer librarians so that they can read and borrow books with benefits lol)

Vindictus : Delia’s Story

TLDR : It’s not a phase dad

AFKalmighty : Keep in mind that the term ‘brothers’ in Korean is unisex and can refer to both male and female although it is more commonly used to only refer to males. Think of how a ‘brotherhood’ in English doesn’t necessarily mean that the organization only consists of males.

Age 10 vs 24

Left is one of the few pictures where I look like a little boy. i know i know, there’s no one way to look like a boy – but my mom dressed me and my twin in matching dresses until I was about 13, so i don’t have many pictures where i can see myself as a younger version of the man i am today. When I wasn’t forced into more femme outfits I was a rowdy tomboy, always playing sports, running around outdoors, but my hair was down to my waist until high school… Looking at this picture on the left, my hair tucked up, baseball cap on, I can almost forget that I didn’t get to live my younger years in a body, a persona, that I identify with now. Back then I didn’t know I could be Christopher, use he/him pronouns, or look any different than the way society brought me up to look. I tried my best most days to fit in as a “girl” and though I hated it, I wouldn’t come to the realization that I was trans until much later, in college at the age of about 19. There were signs that I should have seen, things I said and did that were indicative that I had issues with my assigned gender, but I did my best and looking back i’m proud of how I held up. Yes somedays I wish I had a “traditional boyhood” and could have experienced younger years as Chris, but I wouldn’t be who or where I am today if it weren’t for that younger version of myself.

Feminism 101: Girls Are Weak, We Need To Teach Them to Be Like Boys

I read an article titled Why Do We Teach Girls That It’s Cute to Be Scared? on the New York Time’s website written by a female firefighter insulted because people ask her if she gets scared. Her contention is we teach girls to be afraid and boys to embrace risk.

This fear conditioning begins early. Many studies have shown that physical activity — sports, hiking, playing outdoors — is tied to girls’ self-esteem. And yet girls are often warned away from doing anything that involves a hint of risk.

One study focused on, coincidentally, a playground fire pole, is particularly revealing. It was published in The Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology and showed that parents cautioned their daughters about the dangers of the fire pole significantly more than they did their sons and were much more likely to assist them. But both moms and dads directed their sons to face their fears, with instruction on how to complete the task on their own.

I spoke recently to a friend who admitted that she cautioned her daughter much more than her son. “But she’s very klutzy,” the mom explained. I wondered, wasn’t there a way even a klutzy child could take risks? My friend agreed there might be, but only halfheartedly, and I could see on her face that maternal instinct was sparring with feminism, and feminism was losing.

When a girl learns that the chance of skinning her knee is an acceptable reason not to attempt the fire pole, she learns to avoid activities outside her comfort zone. Soon many situations are considered too scary, when in fact they are simply exhilarating and unknown. Fear becomes a go-to feminine trait, something girls are expected to feel and express at will. By the time a girl reaches her tweens no one bats an eye when she screams at the sight of an insect.

I’ve got mixed feelings on this. On the one hand, as a man with two nieces I want them to grow up confident in their abilities and resilient to failure. On the other hand, feminists constantly pushing the concept that we need to raise girls to be like boys is both idiotic and insulting - to girls.

  • No one teaches boys to catch bugs and drop them in spider webs to see what happens. Boys just do it, girls don’t, and there’s nothing wrong with that in either regard.
  • No one teaches boys to play with matches under the front porch. Boys just do it, girls don’t, and there’s nothing wrong with that in either regard.
  • No one teaches boys to jump off the top of a 10 foot jungle gym. Boys just do it, girls don’t, and there’s nothing wrong with that in either regard.
  • No one teaches boys to use every piddly curb like its a launching pad for their bicycle. Boys just do it, girls don’t, and there’s nothing wrong with that in either regard.

Some girls naturally do these things. They’re called tomboys and there’s nothing wrong with that, but there’s nothing wrong with girls who don’t either. Why do feminists hate little girls so much, view them through a lens of failure, and demand they do better AKA do what the boys do.

Sure, parents might respond to boy and girl children differently, but even a feminist parent who dares to take off her Follow The Agenda At All Costs goggles sees the truth - boys and girls are different - and there’s nothing wrong with that despite what her feminist indoctrination tell her.

the matsus if they had to take care of a kid

Osomatsu: he’s good in the fact that he wants to bond a lot with the kid and come off as a good older brother, but he takes the kid to places that aren’t exactly child friends (i.e. horse races, gambling places, etc) his intent is good but not very responsible

Karamatsu: he’s the kind of guy that will do whatever the kid asks of him. Candy? sure! Carry you the whole day? Of course why not! He spoils the kid he’s taking care of and has a lot of fun doing it and the kid ends up really like him because of that

Choromatsu: proper but a little bit awkward. he tries to be a good guardian, tries to be strict when he has to be but its hard because he doesn’t think he has it in himself to get angry at a child even when he’s already annoyed with them. He’s the kind of guy who’s chasing after kids and screaming at them to be careful

Ichimatsu: He just… Holds the kid and lets them play with cats if they’re nice. If they’re not nice he generally doesn’t care, and Choromatsu ends up taking care of the kid for him

Jyushimatsu: He takes the kid to play a lot of sports and outdoor activities. Kids genuinely like him because he’s funny and always has a lot of energy to play with them! Kids don’t really see him in a position of power but they do what he asks of them just because they like and respect him a lot

Todomatsu: Somehow he manages to manipulate his elder brothers to do the taking care of the kid duties. If it really can’t be helped and he has to take care of the kid, he uses the kid to come off as a responsible guy and make himself look good in front of girls. If he really tries though he’s a good guardian but that’s the thing, he doesn’t really want to put effort into it

A new study shows spending too much time with your kids makes them lazy. And I learned a new term: Hyperparenting.

Hyperparenting basically means you are extremely involved in your kid’s life—like helicopter parents or Tiger Mother parents. A piece in the Wall Street Journal, titled “Too Much Parenting, Not Enough Exercise,” is filled with stats and percentages from the study, but here’s the point…

Children with parents who tended to be overly involved in their academic, athletic and social lives…spent less time outdoors, played fewer after-school sports and were less likely to bike or walk to school, friends’ homes, parks and playgrounds than children with less-involved parents.

Suddenly, I don’t feel so bad that both my wife and I are usually so goddamn busy we can’t hyperparent.

By the way, this article contains another term I’d never heard: Little Emperor parenting. Apparently, that means you give the kid whatever material thing they want. I thought that was just called “raising a spoiled asshole.”
