Writing challenge: This character has children and I honestly couldn’t guess the age of any child under about eleven. Is a two-year-old bigger than a bread box? Does it weigh more than a half keg? Who the fuck knows, not me
You know it’s been a long day when you’re helping a psychology student with a paper and have to pause the session because you read the phrase “launching children into adulthood” and you’re literally picturing babies in catapults just delightedly free-wheeling through the air and you’re laughing so hard you can’t stop.
(Fortunately I was with a really cool student who burst out laughing when I told her why I was laughing but STILL)
Can we as a society please like stop teaching young children that anything done in the name of love is okay and even noble? Just because someone does something out of love does not make it okay or excusable.
This line of thought is is so often portrayed in media, especially in YA literature and media, where straight guys are excused or even congratulated for their shitty behavior because they did it out of love (looking at you Stephanie Meyer). It is perpetuated in “he does it because he likes you” type comments made toward literal children. It is the foundation of harassment and entitlement toward women. It is everywhere.
This idea is DANGEROUS. This idea gets young people, especially young women, abused and killed. Love is not an excuse, it is not a way to sweep the dirt under the rug. Love is commitment and honesty and work. “But he did it because he loves her,” is a cop-out, plain and simple. It allows people, especially men, to hide behind their affections to avoid owning up to their shitty behavior.
Not everything done in the name of love is done in the spirit of love, and we need to start teaching young people to tell the difference.
Hey so like I don’t wanna be a part of the Discourse but like…. you know that Chloe being bi or pansexual doesn’t invalidate her relationships with Max or Rachel, right? She still loves Max. She still loved Rachel. It doesn’t matter if someone headcanons her as bi or pan or whatever. Her being a lesbian would not make her love for women more “pure” and her NOT being a lesbian would not sully her love for women.
if you think its ok to hit your kid unfollow me because youre wrong and an abuser. You don’t care about effective ways to treat your child that dont harm them you care about taking your aggression out on helpless children dependent on your care.
And lmao as someone who was hit as a child no I didn’t turn out fine, and if you were hit as a child and think youre perfectly fine but still think its okay to hit children then no you didn’t turn out fine because you literally believe its okay to beat small children.
When you’re an adult and should feel valid in privately enjoying your standard adult content that was made for your adult consumption but you’ve been conditioned to feel guilty for enjoying things that your adult person should be allowed to enjoy because it was made by adults for adults but God forbid you don’t think about The Children, even though the content literally doesn’t exist for The Children or to harm The Children. It’s almost like adults are allowed to have things in their own spaces online too. It’s almost like the science behind teens being incapable of seeing outside themselves is also true and they can’t conceptualize how it’s not all about them. It’s almost like 18+ warnings and restrictions exist for a reason. It’s almost like classifying things as adult content is an attempt to protect The Children and it’s not a random adult’s fault when anonymous children overstep those protective barriers solely to be angry.
Okay so not to tell you what to do with your life, but I just wanna throw an idea out there for any environmentalists: not having children is literally probably the best thing you can do for the planet. A single human consumes so much in their lifetime, and population growth is going to keep making it worse.
Want to help the environment, but still want kids? Awesome. Adopt. So many children out there already need parents, so it makes much more sense to give them a home than make more kids. Be the best parent ever for someone who needs it most.
MAPs on tumblr dot hell: I wanna keep children safe. I’m non offending.
Antis: You literally have a blog talking about your disgusting attraction and trying to normalize it where minors can freely go to and get the idea that a child in a sexual relationship with an adult, can be okay but of course you think minors aren’t gonna look because it’s 18+ and children always listen. Are you fucking serious?

Gonta Gokuhara: -He is filled with so much anxiety on the delivery day. -“What if the kid doesn’t think I’m a gentleman?” -Once the baby is born, he is stunned and amused by how adorable it is and how small it is compared to him. -The baby smiles and coos at him when Gonta holds it in his arms for the first time, it feels very safe and secure in his arms. -His s/o will have to help him out quite a bit with raising the baby, due to his upbringing he doesn’t know too much about raising a child properly. -He loves to find new insects for the child and let them keep some of them as pets! of course not the poisonous ones, though. -If his child is male then he preaches to him about being a gentleman and makes sure he treats everyone with respect. -especially women -If his child is afraid of bugs then he is willing to help them get over their fear! -Is respectful if his child is not interested in insects, though -Like Shuuichi, he has a problem saying no to his child since he is too nice.
