"When they’re babies, people will come up and say to you ‘Are they a boy or a girl?’ when the kid’s in the pram and you can’t tell. And immediately when you tell them which gender it is they will behave differently according to what you tell them. It got to the point where we didn’t want people to know what gender the baby was. Just treat it as you’d treat someone you wanted to be nice to! Why is it so important to you to know? And then you hear people saying ‘Oh, look at him, he’s a little flirt isn’t he’, or ‘Oooh, she’s gonna wrap you around her little finger’ and all this. What are you on about? She’s two months old, she’s just shat herself."

Hello September

"Because lying to your kids about sex helps nobody. Telling them that sex is “only between mommies and daddies” is a lie that leads to confused, hormone charged teenagers. Telling them that sex is “only something that happens when two people love each other very much” is a lie that causes hormone charged teenagers to confuse “love” with “lust,” or “obsession.” It leads to leaps of logic like, “If I have sex with them, we must be in love.” Or worse- “If I love them, I have to have sex with them.” And how many teenage tragedies are based on that misconception?"

I mean yeah, I have tons of unread books on my shelf, but do you think that’ll stop me from buying more?

  • fetuses do not think
  • they do not “scream out” when they are aborted
  • they have no brain function and no nerve endings until long after the deadline for a legal abortion
  • they aren’t “sad” when you abort them
  • they do not “realize what is happening”

And these aren’t my beliefs, they’re scientific facts

  • I think at the end of the ‘Get to Know Me’ meme, I’m going to do a few bonus ‘Get to Know Sophie’ sets.  We’ll see. I’ve only finished 1/40 (soon to be 2/40 so go me, right?)
  • Yesterday we bought a few necessities for the apartment — including dinnerware and silverware.  We got a pure white porcelain dinnerware set and I have a few DIY ideas pinned.
  • About 6 times out of 10 if you sing ‘Scooby Dooby Doo’ to Sophie she’ll respond with ‘wheh are ooh?’ She’s never even seen Scooby Doo. Maybe we should change that. lol
  • Kyle let me go to sleep at 9:30pm, so of course I was up and wide awake by 3:30am because I’m not used to going to bed early and sleeping for 6 hours without any interruptions. Mom status.
