Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will someday see more women in leadership roles.
don’t read the youtube comments on this.
No, read the comments. See just what frightened people sound like when their power is challenged in the mildest way.
Not only are they incapable of hearing a pretty basic and non-confrontational message (using particular words to describe little girls inhibits the likelihood that they will pursue leadership, so let’s try not to do that), they instantly attack in the most vitriolic ways.
It’s a lovely video, and B at the end!! “I’m not bossy. I’m the boss.” This.
they’re so CUTE
If Lupita is the real life Disney Princess, can Jennifer be the real life quirky side kick?
This is the best one I’ve seen.
Why Declawing is a Bad Idea (An 1-minute guide)
Don’t argue convenience…cats are more likely to make poops outside the litter box if you declaw them - the litter hurts their paws!
Also, one thing that wasn’t mentioned in the comic is that declawing can actually throw off a cat’s sense of balance since cats normally walk on the fronts of their feet.
Also, I have spent time watching my cats and they use their claws like fingers to grab and manipulate things. Yes, they could get by without that finer manipulation, but so could I, and won’t even wear mittens because I hate it so much. I can’t fathom maiming someone I love for the sake of some replaceable furniture.
What bothers me so much though is that when you tell people these things, they always say "well I’ve always done it and my cats have been FINE". That’s not the fucking point. People can live perfectly good lives missing major fingers but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t suck.
look, if your furniture is more important to you, then don’t get a damn cat.
When I worked at a vet, they wouldn’t dock ears or declaw cats. That’s now how I judge if it’s a vet I trust.
If you reeeeally want a declawed cat? Guess where’s a great place to find them?
Animal shelters. Because most people who declaw their cats fundamentally don’t care about them, and thus many eventually ditch them.
If your landlord insists you can only have declawed cats, adopt one that has already had it done.
