There’s not much wrong with the world that can’t be explained by this.
April is the month of the military child, and as it comes to a close we want to provide you with some information to help illuminate the experiences of children in military families. It’s important to remember both the unique challenges children from military families face and the resilience skills they possess that help them to thrive when facing those challenges. Sesame Workshop remains committed to providing military families with the resources they need to ensure their children achieve their highest potential.

Other Feminist titles include such legendary tales such as:
“Welcome to the 21st Century”
Nobody made rape jokes because of every reason ever.
“It’s Pretty Simple”
Maggie explained to her friend how what he said was sexist. He apologised, and the world kept spinning.
“Going Outside Without Being Told How To Be Alive”
Jocelyn went outside. Nobody told her how she should dress or what shape her body should be or how she should talk, act, or think. The end.
“Unrequited Love Is A Useful Term”
Lilliana didn’t love Tom in the same way that he loved her. After a few weeks of awkward conversations, they moved on and continued being friends. The phrase “friendzone” was never uttered.
Phoebe saw someone in the street ahead of her. Somewhat afraid she crossed the street, and that person didn’t get offended and chase after her.
And other lesser known titles such as:
“Stop Speaking For Everyone”
April stopped attempting to assert Western Feminism on all the other women who didn’t want it. Bianca recognised her white middle class cis-gender privilege and set time aside to learn about intersectionality.
And finally, no collection would be complete without:
Feminism ≠ Misandry
President Barack Obama
Rebellious: Getting a tattoo
Maybe not as rebellious: Getting a tattoo that your parents will match
Most rebellious: Getting a tattoo that you parents will match even though it says “Haters off my diiiiiiiick” and shows a bald eagle wringing the life out of the Constitution.
I had the same thought. “I see your bet, and I raise it.”
Do we have to run over this basic ground again?
Women are just as capable of loving science as men. A woman does not have an obligation to be flattered when you tell her she is a ‘‘hottie’’. When you realise someone you assumed is a man because of their interests is actually a woman, you should feel a little surprised (perhaps even embarrassed) and move on … Maybe throw in a bit of self-questioning about gender stereotypes? You don’t tell her she is hot, get angry when she doesn’t appreciate your ‘‘compliment’’. You certainly don’t create disgusting, rapey Facebook pages.
