I’ve always believed that it’s the parent’s job to expose their children to what they want to expose them to. It’s not the media’s job to protect your children

NOT EVERY FAMOUS WOMAN HAS AGREED TO PARENT YOUR CHILDREN.
JUST BECAUSE A WOMAN EXISTS IN PUBLIC THAT DOES NOT MEAN SHE MUST BE A “ROLE MODEL” TO YOUR CHILD.
ALL WOMEN ARE NOT INHERENTLY MOTHERS TO YOUR BABIES.

Along with most media outlets One News ran this news item about the idea of value of Te Reo Māori for the children of Aotearoa. I believe the idea was not making it compulsory as such but making it more accessible throughout schools and encouraging the idea of a bilingual New Zealand. 

Unfortunately white New Zealand is far from ready for this prospect, white tears, racism and personal attacks ensued in the comments section. The comments speak for themselves in terms of how far we have to go in terms of respect for our Māori people, history and the status of tangata whenua. 

What are your thoughts on this whānau? 

Having a bilingual upbringing would have been a dream come true for me as a M
āori woman but unfortunately the effects of colonisation are still strong in my household so I never got the chance to embrace my language.

Do you think Te Reo needs to start from within the home to be effective?  How would learning basic Te Reo effect all our tamariki in NZ?

Hi there! I'm a very much great appreciator of your blog, for it expands and endeavors my knowledge of real problems, and arguments to support! Now I do remember you reblogging a post about how Kim Kardashian is a good person with idk how many facts? But point being maybe if you did know where it was and could reblog it again for me to show my friend who seems to hate her because she says she's a good for nothing and is famous for a sex tape. Just want let her know she actually is a good person.

Porn is one of the biggest and most harmful industries in the world, closely affiliated with human trafficking and drugs and alcohol abuse, causing rape between children, violence, beastiality and pedophilism and its fetishizing race, underage girls, trans people and lesbianism. Thought you should know.

She is so cute, why do people hate her so much?

(because she’s a black woman who doesn’t pander to the male gaze or take any shit and is just really fuckin awesome)

Nikki is a black woman who owns her own business and is making a name in a male dominated industrys but still feminine and that pisses people off lol

I think the “women are mysterious” thing can also come from:
1) Women actually being quite clear, but not telling men what they want to hear.  ”She said she doesn’t want to talk to me?  So many mixed messages and confusing signals!”
2) Women not having cheat codes.  ”I tried being nice, and she didn’t have sex with me.  I tried being an asshole, and she didn’t have sex with me.  Come on, there’s got to be some kind of solution to this puzzle!”
3) Women not being a hive mind.  ”First a woman told me that she likes guys with big muscles.  Then the very next day a woman told me she thinks muscles aren’t attractive at all.  Make up your mind, women!”
4) An individual woman doing something confusing, and instead of asking “why is she doing this now?” men ask “why do women always do this?”

What’s your opinion on using animals for science?

We have prisons full of child molesters so I don’t know why we continue to test on animals

I couldn’t have thought of a more perfect response 

What the fuck? Testing on prisoners is so inhumane???

In what world is exploiting people instead of testing on rats a better solution??

I mean for real, y’all are seriously fucked up suggesting slavery as a viable alternative to animal testing.

Y’all are gross.

"Many of my movies have strong female leads - brave, self-sufficient girls that don’t think twice about fighting for what they believe in with all their heart. They’ll need a friend, or a supporter, but never a savior. Any woman is just as capable of being a hero as any man." - Hayao Miyazaki

And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.
