why do dads sneeze so loud
the only people to meet brienne and greet her with respect instead of insults on her size and appearance
Billy: In principal photography, the last scene we filmed together was where Viggo says “You bow to no man.”
Dom: And the great thing about that was that Viggo was available to do the shot. I mean, he wasn’t on camera but he came and did the shot. He fashioned his own crown, ‘cause they didn’t have a crown for him. So he made a crown out of paper. And in every different shot the crown became more and more silly.
Check out the contrast between these search results. Not a single “loser”, “easy”, “desperate”, “stupid”, “scum” or similar insult in the search results for fathers.
Why, society, are single fathers so often seen with sympathy and admiration, yet single mothers are painted as a washed-up, disgusting strain on the system?
This is fucked.
I know this is rhetorical, but we know the reason.
Motherhood is not valued in this country, it’s demanded. We have people fighting tooth and nail against abortion, birth control, and then any social program that helps poor mothers. If the world sees you as a woman, you are expected to desire, birth, and raise children, and if you don’t do that, or you do it while poor, or single, or not white, you’re not only failing as a woman but as a mother.
But men, they don’t get defined by their reproductive abilities! They get to be multi-dimensional! And if they spare an occasional thought for the children they brought into the world, it’s a cherry on top of their identity as a person.
Women don’t get the luxury of existing as people outside of parenting, even in 2013. And until we do, this is the shit we’ll be dealing with.
