OH MY GOD. Okay stop scrolling and look at me. My mother actually used this book. I am a victim of this piece of literary evil, and let me tell you, it has left me with some seriously deep scars. It got to the point that my brother and I couldn’t even laugh. Laughter was considered “foolishness” and we would literally be struck ten times for it if she heard it. Let me reiterate that.
We could not enjoy ourselves or even be happy without being beaten.
One of the “Christian” cult families introduced this to her and yes, it is basically condoning serious child abuse. I actually personally believe in corporal punishment and let me tell you, THIS IS NOT CORPORAL PUNISHMENT. It is heavy abuse and it’s evil, evil, evil. I’m going to go sign that petition, and so help me, if you know of someone using this book, call Child Protective services immediately. The children of that cult family are now actually being rehabilitated because they grew up like robots. It’s a sick fucking book, okay? Sick. Let’s get this thing banned before it ruins anymore lives.
I am the way I am today because of this hideous thing. I cry every time someone even gently reprimands me. I’m afraid of cutting up in public because I think someone is going to hit me. Worst of all: It taught me to tolerate abuse, that I deserved abuse, and that if someone abused me, I was clearly in the wrong. I can’t possibly begin to tell you how dangerous it has been for me. Thanks to people around me who were raised right, I am only now starting to learn to stand up for myself and that, no, I am not an idiot who deserves verbal, physical, emotional, or mental abuse. I am not just a child who will forever be subject to her power-hungry mother.
Most of all… Children are not animals. And really, who the fuck even treats an animal like that??? Please, if you reblog one thing from me, please let it be this. I don’t want anyone else to go through what I did.
I have heard of this book before and it’s horrible consequences. Please reblog and sign the petition.
I’ve begun silently fighting back against jerks on the subway who sit as spread out as possible. Basically I match your stance.
This guy was sitting on the train with his knees splayed and his hands on the seat to either side of him. So I slowly backed up into the seat next to him forcing him to either move his hand or have me sit on it. Then I spread my knees equally wide and stuck my elbows out just as far.
It’s amazing how uncomfortable this makes men.
Eventually he closed his knees more (so I closed mine.) The ladies across from me noticed this silent warfare and were slightly confused. When he finally got off the train and I sat like a “lady” they realized what I did and grinned at me.
Yep. This is my new thing to do on the subway.
ur a little rebel i like u
pssst hey You know why most guys sit like that? It’s a body language signal known as a “crotch display” and it’s used to show dominance/confidence. This is why guys get uncomfortable when women do this, and also why women are told to sit “like a lady” - basically, without the crotch display. When women do it, they’re telling all the dudes that they’re either stronger or on equal standing with them.
So I say right on, ladies! Go for it.
WE DO NOT SIT WITH OUT LEGS SPREAD BECAUSE WE WANT TO ‘SEXUALLY DOMINATE THE SCENE’ OR WHATEVER BULLCRAP YOU WANT TO COME UP WITH.
WE SIT LIKE THAT BECAUSE WE HAVE TESTICLES IN THE MIDDLE THAT ARE FUCKING SENSITIVE TO HEAT AND PRESSURE, MAKING IT MORE COMFORTABLE TO SPREAD OUR LEGS.
WE CLOSE OURS WHEN YOU ‘IMITATE’ US BECAUSE WE REALISE YOU WANT MORE SPACE AND SO WE BE POLITE AND GIVE IT TO YOU
WE SIT LIKE THIS ANYWHERE HOW ARE WE OPRESSING YOU WHEN WE SIT LIKE THIS ON OUR OWN, IN PRIVATE?
NOT EVERYTHING IS THE GODDAMN PATRIARCHY
I mean he has a point….
Yeah, this dominance everything is bullshit. HES TRYING TO DOMINATE ME. THIS MAN IS OPPRESSING ME. Dude, I know with 100% certainty that everyone on this website has seen a man get kicked in the nuts. You know how sensitive they are. If your balls hang low or are especially large, the combination of sitting in certain positions/types of chairs combined with the cut of your jeans/underwear can cause major problems.
Ever heard of Testicular Torsion? I’ve had it. The pain is the male equivalent of childbirth. Its literally your testicles and all of the cords connected to them getting twisted in to a knot.
LEAVE YOUR BULLSHIT TUMBLR INSTILLED VICTIM COMPLEX AT THE DOOR AND THINK RATIONALLY SOMETIMES. MEN ARE NOT OUT TO GET YOU NEARLY AS MUCH AS YOU THINK. SOMETIMES WE’RE JUST TRYING TO MAKE SURE OUR NUTS DONT TANGLE LIKE IPOD HEADPHONES.
Why does it shock feminists when they find out that people don’t think very well of them? Just…I’m too tired to rant.
this is beautiful. it truly symbolizes the simplicity between life and death, good and evil, right and wrong. but in the end it’s still our paths that we take and our own hearts that we hold in our hands. truly a masterpiece
It’s a Yu-Gi-Oh card
i dont know what that is tumblr user jewish-renegade but if it’s anything like the bible it surely is an inspiration god bless
it’s a yu-gi-oh card. people on tumblr really need to stop seeing something that may have some sort of possible subtext and milking it to the point that it gets actually cringe worth.
