I need to have my faith restored in this place.
This is my son, Chester, who is nearly 4. He was invited to his friend Chloe’s birthday party today, the theme was prince and princesses. He asked if he could go as Sleeping Beauty, so I bought him a dress and put a cute little clip in his hair.
We arrived at the party to the following comments from the adults present:
“Oh that is just cruel.”
"Why did you make him wear a dress?"
"Poor little man, what’s your mummy playing at?"
"He’s going to hate you when he grows up."
"No way I’d let my son dress like a girl."
The fact is, Chester is almost completely gender neutral. I let him wear what he wants, be it boys or girls clothes, and he plays with whatever toys he likes. This usually involves him holding tea parties while wearing his pink Minnie Mouse top, jeans and a tiara. The guests are more often than not a mixture of Winnie The Pooh characters, dinosaurs, Barbie, Dora and solders, and they’re usually transported in his favorite fire engine.
When my husband arrived at the party later on, he was subjected to endless ridicule from the other dad’s present about how I must keep his balls in my back pocket because otherwise he would have put his foot down and not allowed Chester out like that. Oh, and by the way, our other son dressed as Ariel. When my husband pointed out that the boys were happy, and the mother of the birthday child made a point of saying how wonderful she thought it was that we allowed them freedom of choice and expression, they then stopped talking about it to our faces and started muttering about us behind our backs.
Interestingly enough, not a single child said a word about their choice of costumes, other than to compliment Chester on his new dress.
do you ever get a little concerned about how precious to you pieces of paper printed with pictures of siennes are
Once a neighbor nearly burned down our house, and my first concern was saving all my Takarazuka pictures.
OH MY GOD.
I’m not sure if I’ll stop finding that, the person who drew this
and then came up with this… design… for her Top Star goods,
just a tad hilarious.
Yeah. I mean…. er. Yeah.
She is so talented at drawing…That is a pretty mythological creature we have here…

I love passionate people
that light that enters their eyes when they start talking about something they love
the little arm gestures they make
the massive smile that slips onto their face when they realise someone’s listening
I just love passionate, enthusiastic people and I wish more people would be like that
a lot of people are like that but sadly usually when they start talking passionately the responder doesn’t respond accordingly so then the speaker holds back
Things I will forever be upset about:
1. I don’t know what my Patronus is
2. I don’t know what Amortentia smells like to me
3. I don’t know what I’d see in the Mirror of Erised
4. I don’t know what my Boggart would be
5. I don’t know for sure what house I would be in
6. I don’t know the specifications of my wand are.
Which is based off the French production… Which I will be streaming in the future because it is my FAVORITE MUSICAL OF ALL TIME.
Oh my god!! Damn, now I’m starting to wonder if I jumped the gun by coming back in March for Napoleon because I think I’d rather see this.
…. Maybe I’ll come back for both.
I want to see this so bad
