2YO: “how do firefighters climb ladders?”
Me, powerless to resist the urge: “very carefully”

Today my wife stopped me during my outdoor chore time to inquire as to why I had dug a particular hole on our property. I paused and felt a chill up my spine as I was visited by a specter — slender and pale, wrapped in ropes and weight like a beast of burden, wielding blades and spikes — who whispered in my ear, rendering me captive, gripped by the icy paralysis of profound nihilist truth, and I uttered, as if mastered by this ghostly puppeteer-mountaineer of legend: “because it wasn’t there.”

sure, Disney has spent 100 years selling girls on white eurocentric heteronormative "princess" culture, but the only fictional characters my 3.5 year old white femme child truly idolizes are Moana Moana and Louisa Encanto, two women of color who could kill you with their thighs. so who's to say if it's good or not

How to be a man: Think of yourself as one. If you feel safe doing so, tell other people.

How to be a good man: Be a good person while thinking of yourself as a man.
