My daughter needed a vaccine booster from her pediatrician, and the appointment happened to coincide with her lunch period in school. After the appointment, which was very quick, we decided to take her lunch box and head for the nicest park in town. Lunch date for the two of us, completely spontaneous.
It’s a bright, cool, beautiful, early fall day here, and sitting in the park and lunching was just SO nice. Stories were shared. After she finished eating we went to the children’s play area and played on the swings and the spinny, disorienting fun stuff. I left staggering and dizzy, but very happy. Took her back to school and we agreed to do it again, minus the actual Dr appt.

for literal decades, US schools have policed the clothing of young girls and the clothing and hair of black students so meticulously it’s straight up harassment, but now that they’re being asked to enforce a mask mandate in schools, which, btw, is a million times simpler and easier to enforce than these absurd dress codes, they “can’t control students in that way” because they “value student’s bodily autonomy” stfu and tell us with your whole chest that you’re scared of the rich white soccer mom PTA head cutting funding and you don’t think anyone who’s a girl or black deserves bodily autonomy.
EDIT: please reblog this version which has some clarifications!
EDIT: stop reblogging this at all! leave me alone! if you want it on your blog that bad literally copy paste and repost it idc!
I know it's tough for everyone but please, please be extra nice and patient with little kids right now. they're going through so much, we're not going to understand the amount of worldwide trauma these kids have for years, but for context: a five year old who has memories only from the age of three has spent HALF their conscious life under quarantine. they haven't interacted with other kids in person. they've only seen people with masks. they've spent all this time in a home with distressed adults and little stability without truly understanding why. for a massive chunk of their conscious life. so if a kid comes up and talks to you just let them have your attention for a few minutes. don't snap at a child crying or having a meltdown in public, and don't make the parent feel guilty. it's not that difficult to be kind.
Y’all be safe playing among us. I now its a social game but like don’t give out your name or what school you go to. Like I’m sure people might Not track you down using that information but im 23 years old and I grew up during a time were they made us fear strangers and putting information online.
Some more examples, just cause. The trend of asking for someone’s personal information just seems to be growing on Among Us. A report button of some kind would be cool. Like every other game I join is asking where someone lives or their age. I was in a game labeled TEEN ONLY (I’m 23, I LIED) just too... see. This grown person was giving out their snap. In another game I’m 75% sure it was 2 creeps working together. One pretending to be a girl and both them asking Player Red for lots of info about themselves. Anytime I spoke up, I was instantly kicked or banned from the game. People are CREEPS and you need to practice internet safety at all times.
