Weekly Awesome 3.13

March 13, 2013


~Stuff I pinned at my TIAW board.
~”The Deep Spiritual Practice of Not Giving a Shit” <--I need not say anymore. Except maybe that this is my favorite thing in a long time. ~Here’s a story of an awesome dad.
~Bit of a bummer, I’ve been looking forward to seeing the new Oz movie. I suppose, if this article holds true, it could, at the very least, become an interesting discussion with my 10 year old daughter.
~Mayim Bialik and her awesome hairy legs.
~A really great video about the appropriate use of the word “gay”.
~This one isn’t specific to women, but it’s certainly a story that many women will relate to. Either themselves, or as someone who knows someone who has struggled with addiction. Russell Brand turns out to be a phenomenal writer who openly shares his personal experience with addiction. I strongly suggest you read this and then pass it on because the more people who can understand addiction, the more people addicts will have to help them overcome it.
~This one was written a couple of weeks ago after the Oscars and all that shit went down, but I’m sharing it because it’s relevant always. It really bothers me that cunt is a bad word. I mean the WORST word you could possibly think of is a name for the actual feminine parts. WTF? Maybe it’s because I somehow missed hearing the word at all until I was nearly an adult, but I still think fuck is way worse in terms of shock value. And by that I guess I mean it shocks ME more because the evidence points to otherwise for I think every other person on this planet. In any case, I don’t mind the word at all – if it’s being used to describe my, well, my cunt. I don’t like it as a derogatory term anymore than I like pussy as a derogatory term. My hoo-ha is not your insult. Just like that video in a previous link about the word gay, use better words for your insults instead.

    Dude, the Mayim Bialik article comes at the perfect time where my 11yo daughter recently asked when she could start shaving because everyone at school is already shaving and she is self conscious about the very light hair on her legs. I want her to wait until it’s her choice for her choice not her choice because she doesn’t want to be teased. But I also don’t want her to be teased… The article will be good for her to read though.
