vampires that arent stuck in their old ways

vampires that fucking love modern technology because jesus christ this is so much EASIER

vampires that know more about pop culture than you do because hey what else is there to do after a few decades but watch reruns

modern-friendly vampires for the win

considering that blog was called "fighting feminism" i wouldn't value that opinion too much, it's kind of the reason that poem exists. (it's fantastic btw <3) — Anonymous

Yeah, I just can’t resist arguing back - bad habit of mine.

Glad you like the poem though!

a poem by susan mesler-evans

If I should have a son,

I will teach him that every girl is worth his respect,

even if she sleeps with every guy she dates,

even if she doesn’t sleep with anyone,

even if she doesn’t sleep with him.

If I should have a son,

I will tell him that he is just…

This is so one sided!
I hope you have a girl. Cause if you have a son his life’s gonna be shit. It’s all consequence for the son, but when it’s the daughter doing something it’s never her fault. What kind of bullshit is that?

Nice poem though:)
If it rhymed and made sense it’d be less shitty.

….what the hell?

first off: free verse poetry. look it up.

second off: there are parts of the poem specifically telling the daughter that she has no right to put other women down

third off: …what?

that poem you wrote about 'if I have a son' is utterly amazing. please keep writing. it makes me v happy — wutevrfloatsyourboat

an unfiltered rant against sexism and society

a poem by susan mesler-evans

If I should have a son,

I will teach him that every girl is worth his respect,

even if she sleeps with every guy she dates,

even if she doesn’t sleep with anyone,

even if she doesn’t sleep with him.

If I should have a son,

I will tell him that he is just as responsible for ending sexism as I am,

and that if he sees his friends treating women poorly,

he needs to step up and call them out for it.

If I should have a son,

I will tell him that no, just because that girl likes speaking her mind,

that does not mean she’s on her period,

and even if she were, that’s none of his business to ask.

 

If I should have a daughter,

I will teach her that being “one of the boys” is nothing to be ashamed of,

but neither is liking makeup and the color pink.

If I should have a daughter,

I will teach her that just because her idea of fun is reading a book,

and the other girl’s idea of fun is doing shots of tequila

does not make her any better than the other girl.

If I should have a daughter,

I will teach her that her sex life is her business

and her business alone,

and she shouldn’t have to justify it to the people calling her a slut.

 

If I should have a son,

I will tell him that if a girl trusts him enough to send him naked pictures,

he does not leak them on the internet.

That a few high-fives from his friends

are not worth the shame and humiliation that girl will have to face.

If I should have a daughter,

I will tell her that it is absolutely not her fault that a boy decided to betray her trust,

and that one topless photo from her does not excuse his rotten behavior.

If I should have a son,

I will tell him that whether or not he is a girl’s “first”

is none of his business and that she is not obligated to tell him,

and it’s ultimately meaningless anyway.

If I should have a daughter,

I will teach her that not having a vagina doesn’t make her less of a woman,

and I will tell my son that having one does not make him less of man.

 

If I should have a son,

I will teach him that a woman taking charge does not make her a bitch,

and a woman telling him to keep his eyes up does not mean she needs to get a sense of humor.

If I should have a daughter,

I will teach her that her clothes do not define her value as a person,

and neither does what men on the street yell at her as she walks past.

If I should have a son,

I will teach him that if he wants to compliment a girl,

putting other girls down in her favor is not a compliment,

it’s only reinforcing a competition

that none of us wanted to be a part of.

If I should have a daughter,

I will tell her to stop agreeing to that competition,

to call people out when they put women down

just for being who they want to be.

 

If I should have a child,

I will teach them that no matter what their gender,

women’s issues are their issues,

and that unless they start realizing that,

nothing’s going to change.

It’s not.

Robin Williams recorded his dialogue for the Genie at the same time - and across the street from - the filming of Schindler’s List, one of the most depressing movies of all time.

After he was done every day, Robin would go across the street to cheer up the cast of Schindler and make them laugh with recordings of his improvised material from that day.

I just thought you all might want to know that story.
