Doctor: When did you adopt?
My blonde Caucasian Mum: I'm sorry?
Doctor: (nods at me)
Mum: Oh, she's mine.
Doctor: (sighs) How old was she when you adopted her?
Mum: (impatiently) Her father's Japanese.
Doctor: I can see that, but WHEN did you adopt her?
Mum: Are you that daft?
Mum: Look, give me your pen and paper. I'll draw you a cartoon how her father and I made her. I promise I won't make it too smutty.

Not Shaving My Vagina
adailyriot: mattsadouche: mybiggestregretever: My biggest regret ever is not shaving my vagina before “doing things.” He was all like, “eww omg why don’t you shave that’s gross.” And then I’m like, “I’ve never needed to until you came along.” We never ended up doing anything and he broke up with me two days later and told the whole school that I don’t shave. Now I’m horny, alone,...

Still, while we weren’t necessarily surprised by what we found in the “rules for girls” hashtag, that didn’t stop us from being severely disheartened. Sure, there were some positive tweets, like “Stop making #rulesforgirls,” and various other empowering...
