I actually think this was pretty responsible. Rather than banning it outright, which would result in kids wanting to rebel even more, she offers it in her home where she can control the amount people drink. Good on ya, Mrs George. You’re a cool mom.
She also offered her daughter a condom when she was hooking up with a guy instead of freaking out and kicking the guy out of the house.
There are plenty of other ways in which she is a terrible parent.
Yeah, because offering her daughter/daughter’s friends alcohol in the house, a condom whilst her daughter was sleeping with someone, and all the other shit she does during the movie resulted in one of the most well-adjusted kids ever.
My parents said no drinking, no drugs, get good grades, don’t be a douche. Because I had boundaries, and my parents enforced them, I turned out pretty damn good. My brother didn’t get those same enforcements, and he’s a hot mess.
Parents need not be their kids’ best friend.
Tumblr, we need you! A rogue Arizona State representative, John Kavanagh, wants to pass a bill that would thow trans people in jail for using public restrooms. Anyone could be asked for I.D. to “prove” their gender, and if there’s a discrepancy they could face a fine or jailtime.
When asked why the bill targeted trans people, Kavanagh explained that it’s because he thinks “they’re weird.” Outrageous.
We can stop this bill by taking action at www.allout.org/arizona and spreading the word far and wide. Will you help?
That quote sounds like something out of an onion article oh my god I can’t believe people are this awful
You should help and spread the word too
Are you fucking kidding me holy shit I hate this state.
Yeah, because that whole ID thing worked out so well when they tried passing S.B. 1070.

9. Name 10 people who have influenced you, and describe how.
Person 1: My mom - I got my sense of humor from her. She always finds the funniest cards, and I laugh for years about them. She also taught me just about everything I know about painting rooms, but most importantly, she passed on her love of reading just about anything. I remember when she took me to the library to find more Goosebumps books for me to read, and the librarian told her they were “trash” novels. My mom said that I enjoyed reading them, and that was what was most important of all.
Person 2: My dad - I learned my love of learning from my dad. He’s nicknamed “The Book of Knowledge” in my house, and I was the “Pamphlet.” I am passionate about learning just about anything, similar to my passion for reading everything from the classics to the back of the cereal box.
Person 3: Boyfriend 1 - After the 2.5 year disaster that was my first relationship, I learned never to compromise myself for my significant other, and that if I really had to change to keep a guy, it wasn’t worth it. Also, I knew that the life of drama that some people seem to thrive on was definitely NOT the life for me.
Person 4: Lady Gaga - Although I’ve never met the woman, I finally saw her in concert. I’m not the most timid of people, and I’m pretty good about thinking what I want and living the way I want with no apologies, but having someone who is so famous and popular creating that space for others who might have more trouble is fantastic. I will always support her no matter how ridiculous she may be, because we all deserve that safe space to be who we want.
Person 5: Mrs. B-L - My 9th grade history teacher, Mrs. B-L really inspired my passion for history/social studies by introducing me to my now-favorite author, Margaret George.
Person 6: Grandma M - Grandma M taught me to knit, spent just about every summer with me, and took me to sing to the cows when my family lived on the farm in Minnesota. We are both so similar, it’s no surprise we butted heads on more than one occasion, but she taught me to read, and I will forever be grateful for how much she loves me.
Person 7: Grandma G - Grandma G is more active than M, and she took me to just about every museum, park, and trail in the Greater St. Louis area. I also remember spending weeks at a time with her, and like M, G always wrapped me in love.
Person 8: Grandpa JK - Husband of G, Grandpa JK spent lots of time separating me and my brother, but now he spends time joking with me instead.
Person 9: Grandpa JT - Grandpa JT is the only of my grandparents who has passed away, and while I wasn’t very close to me, I know without him, my life would be very different. He taught me to appreciate what I have, without wanting more. For Christmas and birthdays, everyone only received one present, but the presents were always something amazing. I never remember leaving disappointed or upset, because I knew he spent lots of time finding the perfect gift for each of us.
Person 10: Brother - My brother is a hot mess, and we rarely saw eye to eye on just about anything. Nowadays, I only see him about 4 times a year, but he taught me how to always push the boundaries, both for himself as well as others.
Miles today. 3 were running, and 2 we’re walking. I’m averaging about 12 min per mile when running… not sure how that measures up to beginning runners.
8. What are 5 passions you have?
Knitting - I’ve been knitting since my Sophomore year in college. I taught myself to crochet and knit, but knitting took hold more so than crocheting. I just love the ability to create something with my hands, and most of the time, it looks pretty darn neat.
Reading - I’ve always been a voracious reader. It all started when my grandma cut up a Corn Flakes box to teach me letters; I was hooked! I remember staying up all night one night to read a book when I was in elementary school. I’ll stay up until the wee hours reading something to this day!
Dancing - I started studio dance when I was in fourth grade, and although I haven’t done it so much lately, it’s still something I love watching in movies, television, and live performances. Steve didn’t like seeing Madonna, but the choreography was SICK!
Baking - My mom loves baking chocolate chip cookies, pies, and just about anything else. As my waistline can prove, I inherited this trait from her. Anything sweet, gooey, or loaded in carbs has my name written all over it.
My boyfriend - We’ve been dating for seven months, and every day, I wake up so grateful and happy that he’s in my life. I’ve never felt this way about anyone else, and it’s an amazing feeling.
