the term “aro-ace” is especially lovely because it also sounds like “arrow ace.” are you aromantic and asexual or are you an incredibly skilled and deadly archer. surprise, you’re both
Let’s not forget the original arrow ace:
ARTEMIS JOKE I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR SO LONG
|Customer:||*grabs my ass*|
|Me:||*turns around and holds my hand out for money* you touch it you buy it|
|Customer:||Haha nope, all I did was grab your ass babe|
|Me:||and you think it's okay to do that for free? Would you do that to a girl on the street?|
|Customer:||Well a girl on the street wouldn't be dressed like that, would she?|
|Me:||So if a girl on the street was wearing lingerie you'd grab her ass? Clothing equals consent for you?|
|Customer:||Um, ye- no *laughs nervously*|
|Customers friend:||ya know, you kinda have to pay her now or you're admitting to sexual assault, don't be a dick|
|Customer:||*reluctantly hands me $20*||I later found out that he is a cop. Great, that's the sort of person I want defending and protecting me|

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.
A+ parenting right here.
SHAME on those other adults for being damn bigots.
The other adults don’t understand that there can be such a thing as gender-neutral expression in western society. They have, in fact, been raised their whole lives to believe that there ISN’T such a thing.
They need to be taught better, and it is the responsibility of those of us who KNOW better to be available to TEACH them better.
Two generations from now, the sea will have changed, but now? To Get there? People still need to be made to understand.
Lawrence’s parents — her dad owned a construction business; the two now run a summer day camp-were initially less than thrilled with their daughter’s decision to become an actress.
When Lawrence was 14, she persuaded them to let her spend the summer in New York City going on auditions. As summer came to an end, her parents wanted her to come back home already. In the midst of their arguments, Lawrence happened to see a newspaper story about a boy from Kentucky starring in a new movie called Little Manhattan. “I was like, ‘Look, see? He’s from Kentucky and he made it’ I can do it too!’ And, weirdly, it helped them accept that this is what I wanted to do.”
That boy was Josh Hutcherson. In a nifty twist of fate, he’ll play Peeta, Lawrence’s favorite character from the Hunger Games trilogy.

my heart just got shreded
Probably a huge factor as to why she is so close with Josh. Talk about fate. How beautiful.
That is a fantastic way to start a friendship and working relationship.
