Our data finds that on weekends, dads find more time for leisure than moms.

Dad’s “find” more leisure time, eh?  Like, it was hidden under the rug and the mom’s didn’t look hard for it?
"Fathers take full advantage of the weekends." 
“With moms scaling back their time for child care..”
Ugh. I want people to pay attention to how these discussions are framed.  Men don’t magically “find” more time for leisure; this implies that if women take less time for leisure, they are doing something wrong.  It also ignores the fact that part of the reason dads can have more leisure time is that the mom’s are watching the children. Does no one realize if the dad’s watched the kids more, the moms would have more leisure time?  
No because it’s too busy implying that if mothers do just that, they are somehow neglecting their children.  How does one “scale back their time” for parenting anyway? When fathers go play golf for 8 hours on a Saturday, is that “scaling back” too? Oh wait, it’s called “taking advantage of the weekends”!  ::eye-roll::
This whole article is massively irritating.

Lessons Learned From Menstruation Pop Quizzes While Being Intersex

Hey, there, Autostraddlers. Looking at me now, what do you see?

Well, okay, don’t look at The Wild Thing.

I mean, if we were passing each other on the street and you saw me. How would you read me?

Before you could even…

i went to the mall today for not very long

i went by a lush and basically stumbled and was weird everywhere… and then they asked me to send over a resume??!? excuse me what?!?!

and idk portland like

i feel like people actually actually see me here? it’s really unnerving (like, i don’t know how to stay calm and just be cool) but it’s also really really validating, and i can’t really explain what’s going on, what’s so different. 

the people at lush were mega sweet so i bought this massage bar that i’ve thought smells unreal for yearrsss, so now i smell like sweet cinnamon and mint. 

i also tried some mattresses and found one i like, but i think i will wait til memorial day weekend. I don’t move in until june. plus, i really could use the funds. 

lalala

that is what happened

have you ever brought up a topic like ableism or misogyny or cissexism around people you love and trust and just seen the boredom and exasperation and ‘here we go again’ in their eyes and suddenly felt a little bit less safe
