This is my son, Chester, who is nearly 4. He was invited to his friend Chloe’s birthday party today, the theme was prince and princesses. He asked if he could go as Sleeping Beauty, so I bought him a dress and put a cute little clip in his hair.
We arrived at the party to the following comments from the adults present:
“Oh that is just cruel.”
"Why did you make him wear a dress?"
"Poor little man, what’s your mummy playing at?"
"He’s going to hate you when he grows up."
"No way I’d let my son dress like a girl."
The fact is, Chester is almost completely gender neutral. I let him wear what he wants, be it boys or girls clothes, and he plays with whatever toys he likes. This usually involves him holding tea parties while wearing his pink Minnie Mouse top, jeans and a tiara. The guests are more often than not a mixture of Winnie The Pooh characters, dinosaurs, Barbie, Dora and solders, and they’re usually transported in his favorite fire engine.
When my husband arrived at the party later on, he was subjected to endless ridicule from the other dad’s present about how I must keep his balls in my back pocket because otherwise he would have put his foot down and not allowed Chester out like that. Oh, and by the way, our other son dressed as Ariel. When my husband pointed out that the boys were happy, and the mother of the birthday child made a point of saying how wonderful she thought it was that we allowed them freedom of choice and expression, they then stopped talking about it to our faces and started muttering about us behind our backs.
Interestingly enough, not a single child said a word about their choice of costumes, other than to compliment Chester on his new dress.

I never know how to translate 「可愛いがってあげる」 nicely in English. orz Thus I tend to use context and translate it multiple different ways…
Yeeeah, we had mice that managed to get in the ceiling. Drove the cat nuts that she could hear them but not see them. (We also had raccoons under the house a few times. The babies were adorable but they were noisy buggers.)Oh gosh, I can only imagine. My dog doesn’t like the squirrels; she gets antsy and paces the room and then comes and tries to sleep up by my head, which is silly because it’s closer to them and she doesn’t like the scrabbling.
not the hitman reborn fandom cause they are fucking dead
THE SQUIRRELS ARE BACK IN THE CEILING. DARN IT.
It’s really creepy to wake up at night and hear scratching noises right over your head and in the wall by your head. Granted, they’re harmless, but that doesn’t change that it’s really unsettling.
Actually, in Ukyo’s route, Ema tells Ukyo how she makes food for Futo often. He ‘orders’ food to be made since he doesn’t come home at regular times. So honestly, no questions asked, Ukyo will probably do it without a second thought LOL
Oh heck yes
In other words, no further incentive is needed. Futo really has it coming to him. (I couldn’t hate him if I tried, but he really is a spoiled brat.)
Hey look another reason why Ukyo’s awesome.
hey instead of bullying straight/white/cis people because “they havent been oppressed” how about we dONT PICK ON ANYBODY AT ALL??????H OW ABOUT WE????FUCKING PRACTICE WHAT WE PREACH AND BE NICE TO INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVENT DONE ANYTHING TO HURT US BESIDES EXIST??????????
God loves Atheists and Christians precisely the same. Remember that the next time you think your faith makes you better than someone else.
