So I never thought I'd have to teach a nurse about contraceptives.
And I never thought I'd have to explain to a childless woman why teething gel isn't the devil and quit judging...

and I NEVER THOUGHT I"D HAVE TO EXPLAIN THAT A WOMAN, BEING THREATENED WITH RAPE TO "GET HER IN HER PLACE" IS INFACT A BAD THING NOT A BOYS WILL BE BOYS THING AND NO SHE"S NOT GOING PUBLIC TO PLAY VICTIM FOR ATTENTION I DON"T EVEN>>>>

ahem.

Yeah. So that had to happen.

Good fucking gods.

If Stirling started acting like that it would be a fucking ISSUE in the house and would not fucking fly.

I know a lot of really honest, good, men ( husb included who raged more than I did at this discussion) and we will not raise him with a manly man privilege boys will be boys 'tude. OH no. Not even happening.

I'm thinking some kind of strict boarding school. Not a plushy swiss one, something like a romanian military boarding school run by stern nuns.

but seriously. I wanted to ask "and you'd be silent if you recieved this chat log? or if it was your daughter who did or your son who perpetuated "rape as a coercive tool" thing? really? That'd be ok with you? You'd tell your daughter to remain silent, lest she be seen as an attention seeker playing the victim?

GAAHHHHHHHHH.

I think I might have planted some seeds of edumacation in her brain but I'm not honestly optimistic she sees things differently at all.

Meanwhile boy is getting his top 2 front teeths. We went for a long walk. We got pearls and gems and metal. We napped. Surgeon called and my surgery was basically "textbook" and they removed some endometriosis and it all looked good from their perspective, which is always nice "hi we didn't find ufos or tumors", and I was actually a bit surprised the surgeon called me herself.

Oh and I came down with a mild lung infection post surgery but that's been drugged and dealt with and slowly recovering. I might be handing in a project late but i care-th not at this very moment.
