Do not tease children about their crushes.

Do not tease children about their crushes.

Do not tease children about their crushes.

DO NOT TEASE CHILDREN ABOUT THEIR CRUSHES.

DO NOT TEACH CHILDREN FROM A YOUNG AGE THAT THEIR EMOTIONS ABOUT ANOTHER PERSON ARE INVALID.

DO NOT TEACH CHILDREN THAT IF THEY TELL ANYBODY ABOUT THESE EMOTIONS, THEY WILL ONLY BE MOCKED.

JUST STOP.

Example (literally this happened today): This girl at my summer camp has a crush on one of our male leaders and everyone makes fun of her for it. She told me the other day that she lives with her grandpa because her parents (her step-father mostly) favor/spoil her younger half-brother (who also goes to my summer camp) so much that they will literally send her to her grandparent’s house whenever her half-brother and fight. She’s like 8 and her brother is 5. Anyway, she’s always clinging to one of our male leaders and today this kid was bullying her about it “Why do you always hang by David? Why do you always sit by David? Why are you always asking for David? Why do you like him so much?” Every time she came to me in tears, I just got more and more upset. I was sitting next to her at lunch and she demanded that David sit next to her and the boy was like “God, Kayla, why do you always have to sit by David?” and she started to cry and I was like “Because he’s her favorite leader, okay? You have a favorite leader just like she does. You ask to sit by your favorite leader and so does she. There’s nothing wrong with having a favorite leader! Apologize to her for making her upset ” And then I sent him to a different table.

i think it’s a universal truth that everyone in our generation takes pluto’s losing its planetary status as a personal offense

yes

pluto is smaller than russia. why did we ever even consider it a planet?

BECAUSE IT’S A PART OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM

OHANA MEANS FAMILY

FAMILY MEANS NO ONE IS LEFT BEHIND

Or forgotten.

No one can be allowed to forget pluto. Ever.

I did my fucking planet report in 5th grade on pluto so … Yah. It’s a planet.

I’m afraid I’ll never finish college. I’m afraid I’ll finish college with student loans I can never pay back. I’m afraid I’ll get a degree and won’t be able to find a job in that field. I’m afraid I’ll get a degree, get the job I dreamed of, and hate it.

A Mental Illness Happy Hour listener whose list of fears matches mine four for four. Glad I’m not the only one.
