This book is a HORRIBLE LIE.  Just horrible.  I did not write this book.
The book I wrote was called NOT ALL POKÉMEN and was a documentary about Pokémon and the men who catch them (they call themselves “Pokémen”) 
(but it was only about some of them, because there are a lot of Pokémen out there and I was up against a deadline)
ALSO FOR THE RECORD THERE IS ONLY ONE KIND OF -ANDRY I’M INTERESTED IN, AND IT IS

[BOOKWAR]

bookwar just keeps getting more wonderful…

When my mom’s out in public, she sends me pictures of lesbians she sees.

Jesus I envy that relationship. 

this is like the time when my mum took me bra shopping and the girl measuring me up was a lesbian and my mum said to me “i’ll go take a walk around the shop so you can talk to this nice young girl” and gave me a look as if to say “chat her up”. 

My mum tries to push me towards cute possibly gay girls and then disappears. She did it in Primark once and I found her hiding behind a pile of knickers, watching me.

i love all of your moms

When I was 17 I was convinced I was in love with the check out girl at the grocery store 5 minutes away from our house, so my dad went to get milk and somehow found an appropriate point in the conversation while buying a half gallon of milk to give her my number. Three days later she called me and asked if I wanted to come over “to watch a movie” and long story short my dad got me laid thanks dad.


That last story is worth reblogging

It’s always so reassuring to hear positive stories about parent-child relationships after children come out :) In other news: whether you’re gay, straight, bi, pan, or something else entirely, your parents will never stop trying to set you up with random folks they meet.

"I used to puzzle over a particular statistic that routinely comes up in articles about time use: even though women work vastly more hours now than they did in the 1970s, mothers—and fathers—of all income levels spend much more time with their children than they used to. This seemed impossible to me until recently, when I began to think about my own life. My mother didn’t work all that much when I was younger, but she didn’t spend vast amounts of time with me, either. She didn’t arrange my playdates or drive me to swimming lessons or introduce me to cool music she liked. On weekdays after school she just expected me to show up for dinner; on weekends I barely saw her at all. I, on the other hand, might easily spend every waking Saturday hour with one if not all three of my children, taking one to a soccer game, the second to a theater program, the third to a friend’s house, or just hanging out with them at home. When my daughter was about 10, my husband suddenly realized that in her whole life, she had probably not spent more than 10 minutes unsupervised by an adult. Not 10 minutes in 10 years."

The Overprotected Kid, by Hanna Rosin at The Atlantic

This article about the relatively recent transition to constant adult supervision in parenting was really interesting to me. I was homeschooled until I went to high school, and I think a lot of people assume that all homeschoolers have overprotective or overbearing parents. Most of my childhood was spent outside, playing unsupervised.  I spent time with my other homeschooled friends exploring outside and playing games. Ten or fifteen kids with ages spanning six years, and I don’t remember seeing a single adult until we had to leave or someone got seriously injured. When I was at home, my brother and I spent most of our time in the mountains, woods, and rivers around our house. We would get lost together. We planted gardens. We walked to the mercantile store for candy. We followed deer tracks through the hills.

I think my parents raised me this way because *their* fondest memories of their childhood (like the parents in this article) were the moments of freedom they got. My mother biking to the store; my dad getting his first job (school janitor!). The same day I read the article I went on a tour of a local Black community with an older man who is active in the environmental justice movement there. He grew up in this neighborhood, and pointed out all of the places he used to play: the ponds he and his friends would swim in, the forest they built forts in, and the well they would get a drink from after a long day outside. His childhood was similar to mine in so many ways. He said that now children can’t play in the ponds or drink the well water because it is polluted, and they can’t play in the forest because people have illegally dumped hazardous wastes there.

It is upsetting to me to think that kids might be getting pushed indoors no matter what kind of family they’re from: upper-class kids by their enrichment activities, and lower-class kids by the polluted environment.

My thought process during this video:

1. Video of dogs reacting to magic? Oh definitely going to watch that

2. Is it just me or are these dogs way cuter than normal dogs?

3. Dies laughing of cuteness and awesomeness.

Woah, this is one my mom told me as well! So wait… you *can’t* get your shoelaces or clothes stuck in the escalator and get ground to pieces? This changes everything.

so i cut my hair

I’ve decided to be 100% honest with hairdressers and have inadvertently gamified the process. I give them these parameters as a fun challenge:
I wash my hair every day;
I don’t and won’t own a blowdryer;
I don’t own a flat iron, a curling iron, or any other kind of hair-related electrical equipment and I’m not going to buy any of these;
I am way too lazy to use “hair products” that aren’t shampoo, so that’s never going to happen;
I can be convinced to brush my hair if required, but I get around to it maybe once a month;
and I ask them to find me a haircut that will work.
The more upscale the hair salon, the less freaked out and fighty they are by this. My favourite conversation about it so far has been this one:
Hairdresser, perplexed by my unwillingness to blow dry my hair, and has been trying to come up with a rebuttal for about 20 minutes: But it’s like with your clothes, you wash your clothes, but you also have to iron them!
Me: I buy clothes that don’t require ironing.
I know hairdressers want me to be a different person than I am, but I’m refusing to bend.

This this this this. I have the same attitude towards blowing drying my hair as I do toward flossing and vigorous exercise: I promise I’ve heard of them, I just choose not to partake.
