Joan Rivers on the Ed Sullivan Show, 1967 (x)
HOW IN THE WORLD DID SHE TALK LIKE THIS BACK THEN AND END UP HOSTING A SHOW TEARING APART WHAT PEOPLE LOOK FOR A FRIGGING LIVING????
SHOCKED when I got to the bottom and saw “Joan Rivers”
To the women who choose not to have kids, I have one thing to say: thank you.
You probably don’t hear it enough. In fact, you probably don’t hear it at all. What you do hear is an array of pro-childbearing responses, such as, “You’ll change your mind someday,” or, “Doesn’t your mother want grandkids?” or, “You’ll never find a husband if you never want to have kids.”
All things considered, “thank you” is probably on the opposite end of what you hear.
But seriously: thank you. Thank you for recognizing that childrearing isn’t for you and being true to who you are. It doesn’t mean you hate kids. It just means that raising one is not part of your path in life.
Thank you for not succumbing to the societal pressures. I’ve known far too many parents who had kids because that’s what was expected of them. Working in childcare, you see more of this type than you wish to see. The resentment is almost palpable. They love their children — at least, they have no choice but to love their children — but every single movement seems to scream, “I wasn’t meant for this.” I’ve known too many people who grew up with at least one parent who harbored that resentment, who let that resentment dictate how they parented. I’ve seen how that influenced the way these former children are now as adults, or even as parents themselves.
Thank you for not trying to compromise who you are in an effort to keep a partner around. Thank you for being honest and open and refusing to apologize for who you are. Everyone has different values. Everyone wants something different in life. It takes a lot of guts and confidence to say, “This is what I want in life. It’s not the orthodox way, but it’s my way.”
Thank you for not trying to silence that feeling in your gut as a means to validate your life. There are too many people in this world who cannot figure out their path — or have stumbled while walking down said path — and decided that maybe having a child could provide that meaning and definition instead. You understand that down this path lies vicarious living and hurt emotions and you recognize that there are so many other ways to find love and meaning and joy in your life.
Raising children is a difficult, onerous, frustrating, and disappointing gig. It’s tough enough for those who want it. It is a rewarding and loving gig as well, but it’s not something one should go into while focusing only on reward and love and societal acceptance. In this day and age, with a booming population in almost every country, it makes no sense to pressure every person to have a baby. But we’re sticklers to tradition, ritualistic to a fault.
Being agender, I’m certainly not a woman, but I still get told I should want kids. This goes out to EVERYONE, regardless of your gender and your birth sex. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking having kids is going to make you happy or complete your life. If it isn’t right for you, it isn’t and that’s fine.
There’s nothing wrong with being childless.
also nothing wrong with having hella children
One way that Whites can continue to control the language by which people of colour—and most often Black people (since anti-Blackness means Black bodies are used as ground zero for oppression in juxtaposition to or “antithetical” to Whiteness itself, and primarily because so much anti-oppression…
no extra commentary necessary.
PEOPLE ARE NOT PRO-LIFE BECAUSE THEYRE TRYING TO CONTROL YOUR BODIES AND ELIMINATE WOMENS RIGHTS.
PEOPLE CHOOSE TO BE PRO-LIFE BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE A FETUS IS A HUMAN BEING AND THEY ARE TRYING TO PROTECT THAT CHILD’S LIFE FROM PEOPLE TRYING TO END IT.
Today at my school we had an assembly about internet predators and when I had said that most of my true friends are over the internet and they gave me a lecture about how “I don’t know who I’m talking to” blah blah. So please, if you aren’t a predator in any way, please reblog so i can prove a point.
is that fucking martin freeman
You forgot Walgreens
See future posts! :)
RIP Borders, but I’m here to add Chase Bank and Whole Foods!
Capitol One mandates that any insurance they offer covers transition relayed expenses, including srs and top surgery.
White guys are so proud of their ability to be not offended. When one of them tells a rape joke or uses a racial slur, they wink and pat themselves on the back and give endless attaboys for their superior skills in being not offended. They decry the “politically correct” society…
