#2016847 Unpopular Opinions

According to Buzzfeed maybe, but I don't think this is true at all. Not with adults anyway.

Buzzfeed? 
I personally know plenty of grown adults who think women should cover their breasts when nursing or even nurse in the bathroom.

I am all for breastfeeding and women's rights but I fucking hate seeing pictures of women, especially women I know, with their tits literally all the way out with babies attached to the ends of them, and the fact that that they think by posting these pictures that they are helping the cause in any way.

 

I don't know, I think that's the point isn't it? A lot of people cringe when they see boobs unless it's in a sexual way. I think the point of people posting photos is to normalize it, desensitize people to it, and desexualize it, because it is a very natural thing. I've personally never posted a photo of myself breastfeeding but I certainly see how it helps the cause.

#2014257 Charlottesville KKK/Nazi Rally

Posted by Kate on 14 August 2017 - 04:55 AM

Talk about White Privilege. The fact that all of these monsters have escaped with their lives, doesn't even surprise me at all. If it was a rally of black people wielding torches (let alone GUNS), I don't even want to know what would happen. I hope Charlottesville can come together to condemn this rally and grow stronger as a community. I hope this opens a dialogue about the state of things in the USA right now. I hope it opens some eyes.

Most of my selfies have animal ears and noses because I always take them on snapchat.

#2012525 Spanking? Yes, no, or grey area?

Posted by Kate on 24 July 2017 - 12:20 PM

You didn't know any better because that's what you learned from your parents. It's great you realized how negatively it can impact children. 

I think somewhere deep down I knew better because I never felt good about doing it. I never felt it was effective and I was constantly questioning myself after doing it. I want my children to know that no one has a right to touch their body without their consent and that includes physical discipline. But I was contradicting myself every time I swatted his butt. I'm glad I realized too, but I wish I hadn't done it in the first place.




#2012519 Spanking? Yes, no, or grey area?

Okay, on a serious note. We don't spank in our household, that's not to say we've never given any of our kids a swat on the bum.

With my oldest we never spanked or swatted, he didn't really get into any trouble or dangerous situations.
My second oldest was an extremely busy child and a few times when he'd be violent, or touch something dangerous, I'd swat his bum. 
My youngest has never been touched either.

What I learned: It's silly to swat my second oldest child's bum for hitting someone. That completely confuses him. How can I teach him not to touch other people by doing just that to him? It's something I've always carried a lot of guilt about and when I did do it, it had zero affect on him as far as teaching him anything. The more effective approach for us were time outs and loss of privileges. 

I remember one day just stopping and asking myself if that was really the only way to teach him and I knew in my heart it wasn't. I was spanked a lot growing up and not just gentle taps on the bottom, I was full on spanked, over the lap, and I carried a lot of resentment towards my parents straight through into adult life because I knew there were other ways they could have disciplined me without inflicting physical pain on me. It can really scar a child.
