This whole “If we listen to sexual assault allegations from women then every man will be brought down” is based on how men are socialized. While we all say “rape is wrong”, we also say “boys WILL be boys” & “she was asking for it. Look how’s she’s dressed. Why was she so drunk?”
This fucked up logic is baked into dudes from really a young age. I was raised by a feminist and I still heard statements like “She was asking for it.” She couldn’t shield me, no matter how hard she tried, from how society looks at women and what is “owed” to men.
All the dudes who think every man is on the chopping block if we listen to assault allegations from the past are basing this on the ridiculous idea that women are dishonest liars who want to destroy men. That women are more dangerous to men than we are to them.
If I'm raping women in my late teens (and I say women cuz we don't know what dude could've done. It's not like we know he hit his rape quota) and I never admit it. I never take responsibility for it...
Why the FUCK should I be allowed to sit on the highest court of the land?
The only way you can argue that we should ignore such a heinous crime is if you're trying to protect yourself or others who have committed similarly heinous acts. Rape isn't part of all of our coming of age stories. I snuck out to the arcade at 17.
I tried to watch #IronFistSeason2 and got bored during episode 2. I feel genuinely bad but I haaaaaaaate Finn Jones as Danny Rand. He could be a really nice guy in real life and I’m over here just muttering “I hate this guy” everytime he’s on screen. #WeNERDhard
So far the fight scenes at least are better than the first season. But Finn Jones, for me, is just incredibly unlikable. I’m never on Danny’s side. I’m always like “will someone do bad things to him please?” #IronFistSeason2#WeNERDhard
I’ve heard “I like to move it” 4 times this morning already.
At what point can I sue the childcare program my child is in for mental anguish? Is there paperwork I can download? A form I can submit to the government? #DGProper
So on a kinda serious note, I don’t play certain things for my kid. If the childcare provider starts playing Frozen for my kid am I allowed to go “uh hey, could we not?” Or does being in childcare forfeit all rights to what your kid listens to? #DGProper
I almost asked her “But who calls you baby girl?” But the last I hit her with a logic bomb that she couldn’t handle she screamed for 10 minutes. #DGProper
I realized that acting as the enforcer of rules/discipline may be neccessary for the brat but it aggravates my ADD. My brain does not enjoy keeping rules and lists and when forced to do so I can get cranky. So I have to maintain a calm while being really frustrated. #addcheckin
I bought a $5 box of glow stick bracelets & at the end of one of our adventures I give her one as a “SURPRISE” & she’s happy as can be. When she acts up I say “Well, I guess we won’t be getting any surprises for a while.”
We haven’t had a bad meltdown since the park incident. She starts up & I immediately remind her of myriad consequences that could befall her and she calms right down. She may not be happy w/ me but she’s listening. And it’s not even mean stuff! No music. No “adventure.” #DGProper
So yesterday I posted a pic of a 3d picture of my son in the womb. I look at the post today and see some one posted this in response... #DGProper
That pissed me all the way off. How do you write on a post where someone ALREADY did something that we’re not sure if it’s safe. It’s INVITING you to get freaked out. Mind you, the concern is over vanity ultrasounds that aren’t medically neccessary. This was not that. #DGProper
And if the person had asked I would’ve gladly told them it was specifically requested by the doctor. And there wasn’t extra time involved. It was a basic sonogram and They COULD show the 3d picture.
Why post scare comments to expecting parents? #DGProper
I’m in full troubleshooting mode for my kid because when this new baby shows up she’s gonna lose it. So I’m trying to implement as many hacks as I can so that the wife and I don’t have to feed her to bears in January. #DGProper
So I’ve come to the conclusion that becoming a Daddy is like when X-Men start developing their mutant powers.
At first you can’t control your powers and it’s sporadic and doesn’t kick in when you want it. But the more you practice the better control you get. #DGProper
I’ve been battling my arch nemesis, Sidneto, & I’ve taken some L’s. But my Daddy powers are getting stronger. I’m starting to be able to control them. There’s moments when I’m doing the Dad stuff I’ve seen or heard others do but I didn’t know how they did it. #DGProper
This morning my wife goes to get the brat up. As I’ve said before, she’s preggers & can’t just snatch the child up for a timeout. She also can’t make her do something. She’s too big and my wife is too pregnant. So the brat tries it w/ her.
This A.M I had to put the kid on timeout multiple times. And she’s doing this new thing where I ask her to do something, she ignores it or does the EXACT opposite. I tell her she now has to deal with the consequence and she then yells emphatically “I LISTEN. I LISTEN.” #DGProper
My wife & I keep telling her you can’t retroactively listen. You can’t do ridiculous shit and then when I’m like “dafuq?” you scream “I LISTEN.”
I will admit I thought spanking stopped being a thing. I thought that we all learned that it doesn’t actually help. I got whoopings as a kid but my mom learned before I became a teenager through parenting classes that it’s not effective.
The best part? It's a BEAUTIFUL day in Philly. We were going to the park. I got a special backpack that has a cooler built in so I could bring her cold water and keep her yogurt cool. I had veggie sticks, animal crackers, THE WORKS. I had enough for her AND her BFF. #DGProper
We had literally JUST arrived at the park. She was in a mood & wouldn't let me unbuckle her seat belt. Her mom had to use the bathroom so I told her I was her only option.
I unhook one of the buckles and she kicks at me. I catch it like the Batman & tell her "DON'T KICK DADDY."
My daughter has started wearing hair ties as bracelets. So I wore one & said that we were bracelet buddies. My wife, who has had these hair ties around her wrist forever was like “I’m a bracelet buddy too!”
Me & Siddy:
See I argue that my wife needs to let me have these little things w/ the kid because they have stuff already! My daughter’s love of pretty dresses is only because she thinks her mama wears pretty dresses & she’s not a hat girl yet.
I NEED SOMETHING. LEAVE MY BRACELET BUDDY BE.
That’s why I buy her superhero shirts. She doesn’t know who Batman is (it’s either me or Mr. Carl at her daycare 🤣) but she points at my shirt then hers and says “I have DADDY shirt.”
When my kid is really being a brat I hug her mother in front of her which pisses her off because “That’s MY mommy.” I look her dead in the eye and whisper “She was my wife first” and then kiss her cheek.
Bedtime at this point is like a satanic ritual. There will be screams and possibly blood. WHO KNOWS WHO’S BLOOD? Possible poop all over the place. And a small monster who knows just enough to ask for things but then ask for the EXACT OPPOSITE once she gets what she’s asked for.
The more words she learns the clearer she tells us “I ain’t got time for y’all m’fuckas. Where da animal crackers at?”
Dear Grandpa, a COGIC pastor who died 20+ years ago,
When you asked mommy for the right to name your first grandchild, was this some sort of Zionist plot? I know that “Elon” was in the Bible and you “supposedly” got the name from judges, but what was your REAL motivation?
Maybe I’m a Zionist sleeper agent. I seem normal until the activation paraphrase is spoken which I assume is “When did you open your first electronics store?” I have so many questions. Sitting over here named after the Zionist elite and not even knowing...
There’s so much B.S. right now that it’s overwhelming/frustrating & things we’ve been screaming about for yrs, begging folks to pay attention. We were made to seem hysterical.
Now everyone wants to be in crisis mode and I’m over here sipping my coffee like “Where you been?”
Of course it’s better late than never but you gotta understand why some of us are exhausted and not screaming the same way we were. It’s great YOU finally get the crisis we’re in but I’ve been pointing it out & explaining why for yrs.
This ish is so real that I’ve wanted play spades but I need a new partner and my wife (Jewish) was like “I learned in college. I could play with you.”
Soon as my daughter can hold a hand of cards i will teach her how to play spades. Then I will whoop her hide in Spades until she is able to play properly BECAUSE I LOVE HER AND THATS WHAT A REAL FATHER WOULD DO.
