i literally select the people i allow to get close to me by asking
"is this person going to be a stumbling block between me and my growth and my joy and my God?"
friends, family, men
every relationship i have exists only because the answer to the above question is “no”
any other response means that person is not someone i need in my life
The notion that single parented homes are “broken”
Because there’s no male figure in the home is deeply misogynist and sexist
There are “broken homes” where there’s no female figure present as well. That’s not sexist. Like, at all.
People just wont do right
They’re really so simple—and misogynistic— they honestly believe having a dick in the house will magically solve all a family’s problems. It’s called a phallocracy for a reason.
