Yesterday my mom posted a picture on Facebook of my 5 year old brother Sam wearing a pair of shoes he picked out for his first day of preschool.
She explained to him in the store that they were really made for girls. Sam then told her that he didn’t care and that “ninjas can wear pink shoes too.”
Sam went to preschool and got several compliments on his new shoes. Not one kid said anything negative toward him about it.
However, my mom received about 20 comments on the photo from various family members saying how “wrong” it is and how “things like this will affect him socially” and, put most eloquently by my great aunt, “that shit will turn him gay.”
My mom then deleted the photo and told Sam that he can wear whatever he wants to preschool, that it’s his decision. If he wants to wear pink shoes, he can wear pink shoes.
Sam then explained to her that he didn’t like them because they were pink, he liked them because they were “made out of zebras” and zebras are his favorite animal :)
What does it say about society when a group of adults could stand to take a lesson in humanity from a class of preschoolers?Words cannot express how happy this makes me.
Omg forever reblog
those shoes are fly as hell doe
YAS SAM LET THEM KNOW THAT YOU COULD WERK DOS SHOES BEW BEW
shut the fuck up hermione you fucking nerd.
I don’t care how smart you are or how much you like school, exams still suck.
OKAY BUT THINK ABOUT HOW MUCH SHE FUCKING STUDIED FOR THIS, HOW GOOD SHE’D SCORE. SHE SPENT ALL YEAR BEING BULLIED AND IGNORED AND EXAMS WERE ONE CHANCE FOR HER TO SHOW UP THE OTHERS AND MAKE EVERYONE JEALOUS OF HER. BUT THEY WERE CANCELLED, THEY WERE FUCKING CANCELLED, ALL THE THINGS SHE COULD’VE DONE INSTEAD OF STUDYING WASTED, AND EVERYONE’S HAPPY BUT IF I WAS HERMIONE I WOULD BE GODDAMN PISSED
cute story: I have a friend with a prosthetic arm, and he once confided in me that, after seeing this movie, he’s always wanted someone to ask him for this. Then, the one day, I was at the grocery store with him and a couple other people, and one of our friends couldn’t reach a box on the shelf and asked him, “Dude gimme a hand here”. And, I swear to christ he practiced this because the speed at which he slipped off his prosthesis was blinding, and then he hurled his arm at her. He, unfortunately, got a tad overexcited, and instead of it just landing near her, it spun out and essentially bitchslapped her in mid-air.
Now we say it all the time around him, and he blames Disney for the fact that he has no girlfriend.
fucki m laughing so hard
Disney Princesses in chronological order
They get stronger. Like more independent, more willed, more like they can handle themselves. It’s like a reflection of society in general. Over time, girls have gotten more independent and willed and stuff.
Where the fuck is Mulan?
