Oh my goodness, I am just absolutely stunned by this kind message!
Thank you so much.
I’m normally a passive and non-confrontational person so these posts can be very emotionally straining (I often wonder afterwards if it’s really worth it). Receiving this message has really cheered me up.
I am so flattered. I’m getting a little teary-eyed myself. I still have lots to learn. Please let me know if you need any help in your own research (off or on anon, whatever you’re comfortable with).
1. Teen pregnancy rates are on the decline.3. Emergency contraception Plan B One-Step is now available over the counter without age restrictions.
2. Birth control and annual well-woman exams are now covered by insurance with no copay.
4. The Supreme Court struck down DOMA and Prop 8, paving the way for 10 more states to legalize gay marriage this year.
5. IUDs are more popular than ever.
Like most girls, my daughter hears, “That’s a pretty dress, did you pick it yourself?” or “What lovely hair you have,” or “You have the most amazing eyelashes,” or “I like the bows on your shoes,” or “You are so cute” almost every time somebody engages in conversation with her.
If family, friends, shop assistants, complete strangers, and even Santa only remark on how girls look, rather than what they think and do, how can we expect girls to believe that they have anything more to offer the world than their beauty?
This is important.
My generation got a cheap college education when we were young, and we’re getting good retirement benefits now that we’re old. Pretty nice. But now we’re turning around and telling today’s twentysomethings that they should pay through the nose for college, keep paying taxes for our retirements, and oh by the way, when it comes time for you to retire your benefits are going to have to be cut. So sorry.
And THEN you’re telling them that they’re the most spoiled, entitled, self-absorbed generation in history. It’s stupid and gross.

And what’s funny is I LEARNED this song genderswapped in show choir in 1997. When I heard an original version, I was like, “huh?”
