This is why you should have a cat y’all. Egyptians believed that cats repelled evil spirits.
Cats are evil spirits. They’re just the strongest so all others must bow to their greatness.
Actually according to legend, cats are guardians of the Underworld. So once you are dead if you try to sneak back into the land of the living they send you back where you came from. They protect the living from the dead.
If you ever wonder why a cat stares off into the wild blue yonder and then bolts off for “no reason…”
So my 5 year old son has hit that age where nighttime is scary because monsters. His dad let him watch this movie (much to my chagrin) except, instead of making the situation worse, it actually eliminated it completely. Now when he goes to bed he takes the cat with him. The cat is more than happy to curl up at the foot of his bed, and he’s no longer afraid because, don’t worry mommy, the kitty will protect me.
"I’m giving a presentation tomorrow on the experience of African American males growing up in America."
"What’s the thesis?"
"Hundreds of interviews have been conducted, and we’ve found that not only do most African American males fail to acknowledge institutional racism, they mainly tend to blame themselves for their failures. They say things like they didn’t work hard enough, or made too many mistakes. They don’t understand that they weren’t afforded the same opportunities."
i wanna date someone and live with them in a shitty apartment but be happy about it because we are happy together and we can decorate it with stupid dorky posters of shit we like and figurines and art and we can cook weird recipes we found on the internet and eat them and watch cartoons even if the food is gross because we made it and we’re perfect
if I turned around and a small army of cats was behind me do u kno how elated I would be
This is such an important thing to say, though.
A lot of people are acknowledging this as a very powerful sound bite, but take a minute to really consider the context of this.
Every time you misgender a trans person, you are putting their lives in danger.
You aren’t just hurting our feelings - and there is nothing “just” about hurt feelings for people prone to suicide - you risk outing us to people we may not want to be outed to.
It opens us up to harassment, discrimination, and even assault. We could lose our jobs, our families, and our livelihood.
Every time you intentionally misgender a trans person, you tell us that you consider us to be less than animals.
