if women are so hurt by being called bossy, or are afraid of leadership positions because they don’t want to be called bossy are probably not fit for leadership positions to begin with.
Little girls. This campaign is aimed at little girls. Little girls who are being bullied and demeaned by both their peers and adults in their life for not being passive enough.
You are advocating for little girls to be bullied. Look at yourself.
So this happened on facebook today….
I feel like someone breathed new air into my lungs. I am not Abnegation. I am not Dauntless. I am Divergent. And I can’t be controlled.
wow based on what i’ve heard about your family this isn’t overly surprising, and i think you’ve said you already take care of him a lot, but it’s still sort of fucking weird. oh but kudos to your brother, that’s wicked cool!
my family is batshit, okay, and on the upside he’d be living with me and not my mom, which can only be a good thing, but. he’s a good kid. we’ve done test runs, where i’ve been his guardian for a week or two at a time, and it hasn’t ended in bloody death yet, but. if i can help him get into and succeed at TJ, I’m all in. Because if he gets in, he could get into any university he wanted, practically, and he’s already a whiz kid, so. It’s just kind of weird to have this discussion when he hasn’t even applied yet.

OMFG BEST MISTAKE EVER
WOW WHAT THE HELL ELLEN
so, uh, I have a little brother, right? And he’s wicked smart. And, uh, we happen to live in Virginia, and like an hour away is the top public high school in the US. Like. THE top public high school, and our county sends like 20 kids out of 40,000, and it’s really prestigious. And, uh, he’s got an active shot at getting in? Kid’s a fucking genius, I’m so proud of him. Anyways, our county cancelled the bus service (because it’s like an hour each way on the bus, it’s fucking insane) for coming years and so if he was going to go there, he’d need to either be driven an hour each way every day or the whole family would have to move. And, uh, as it happens, my college campus is about twenty minutes from the high school, AND it gets bus service, so if he gets in, my parents are buying a house, giving him a room and me a room, and renting out the other rooms to other students (college students, not high school students, hopefully), and, uh, he’d live with me five days of the week and go home on weekends, unless he made travel soccer, in which case he’d live with me seven days a week and our parents would visit on weekends, until I graduated and he hit senior year, at which point he’d move back home and drive himself to school every day. Obviously none of this is set in stone, because he has to apply and get in, but he probably will, because he’s a whiz kid, he should have no problem getting in, and I guess the only roadblocks would be if his application failed, if I transferred schools, or if there were legal issues with me being his guardian.
So that’s how I might become a guardian of a thirteen year old boy at age nineteen.
Oh wow I hope everything works out well
I’m trying to figure out how this happened because I’m fairly certain this isn’t how most families deal with high school and college.
It is entirely possible that, in one year, I will be the sole active guardian of a thirteen year old.
If you message me, do not put “sorry for wasting your time” or “sorry for bothering you” at the end of your message!!! I’ve seen this way too many times. You are not a waste of my time. You are not a waste of anyone’s time. You are not a waste of time period. Please never say or think that ever again
