Boy : Are you a super hero?

Me : What?

Boy : My daddy told me that people with red marks are super heros because they fought too long with bad guys

Me : Your daddy must be very smart to know that

Boy : Yeah he was a super hero. He tried to fly once but a rope stopped him.

"People who deny the existence of dragons are often eaten by dragons. From within."
- Ursula K. Le GuinThe Wave in the Mind: Talks & Essays on the Writer, the Reader & the Imagination (via feellng)
"When I was 12 boys slid their hand up my thigh and slapped my butt. I smiled and took it because I didn’t know it was okay to say stop. I didn’t know that I could say no. So, when the principal calls telling me my daughter is suspended for punching a boy who wouldn’t stop touching her, I will cook her favorite meals. When she tells me how she cursed at the boy who wouldn’t move his hands off her knee even though she asked him to, I will smile and pull out her favorite movie to watch together. I will celebrate the fact that she accepts her body as her own and knows she has the right to say no. I never want my daughter to think her body belongs to men, because it is her own and my god should she be proud. I will teach her it’s more than okay to say stop, something I wish I had known when I was that age."
