    Let’s be honest everyone would rather watch a Black Widow movie than antman

    I’d rather watch Black Widow file her taxes than an Ant Man movie

    Well you have to admit her work-related expenses would tell some pretty interesting stories all by themselves

    Black Widow orders towels online: the movie

    Black Widow reorganizes her sock drawer: the movie

    Black Widow cleans her gutters: the movie

    Still more exciting than Ant Man

    This is actually sadly relevant. I had a lecture this summer about sign languages and Deaf culture and when I was finished, one hearing girl from the audience stayed behind to ask me some more question.

    She asked me: “And your parents use sign language, right?” Like it was the most obvious thing in the world and why is she even asking this, of course my parents must know sign language.

    "No… They don’t, actually."

    "And how do you communicate, then?"

    "Talking?"

    "But… isn’t that complicated for you?"

    "It is, sometimes."

    "They probably didn’t have time for it…" she said. And I haven’t the heart to tell her that my father was offered sign language courses several times, that I offered to teach them some signs and that they always refused.

    But I did told her: “It is not that rare. Most of deaf people I know have hearing parents who don’t sign.”

    It’s the sad truth. People are willing to pay for surgeries to “repair” their children, but they are not willing to learn something to communicate with them.

    i’d like to add onto this with my own personal experience, too. i was born hearing, but as soon as i was diagnosed as HoH, my parents didn’t do anything to learn ASL. they were quick to put me in classes, but they wouldn’t when i suggested to them that they take the classes with me so that we could learn.

    i’ve tried to teach my mom how to sign numerous times, but she always says that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” to which i tell her that she can learn, she just doesn’t want to. which is true. neither of my parents want to learn how to sign, but they want me to be able to hear perfectly so they don’t have to repeat themselves.

    little do they know that their frustration with me not being able to hear them would be solved if they would just learn how to sign. maybe signing something to me once instead of repeating themselves four times and then getting mad would be more beneficial.

    I’m absolutely shocked at this, it’s never crossed my mind that many parents wouldn’t even try to meet their hard of hearing kids halfway.

    What the fuck kind of parenting is that? I’m appalled. 

    Listen, man. If you’re going to be a parent, then that means you have to be prepared to pull your finger out and do things for them, even when it’s inconvenient for you. Your kid didn’t ask to be lumped in with you; you did that, and now you’re going to have to do everything you can to make that kid’s life as decent and balanced and good as you can possibly manage. That’s what being a parent means. Your kids don’t owe you shit

    Now normally when I explain that it’s because someone is bitching and whining about having an ungrateful child who doesn’t want to do X, Y or Z with them or for them or who isn’t living up to expectations, like that child is indebted to them because they fulfilled the basic criteria of human decency by raising them with some semblance of compassion and care, but this? Horrendous

    I’m sorry, does learning a new skill so that you can communicate with your child seem like it’s above and beyond somehow? Sorry, matey, but it isn’t. You’re a parent, this is your job. Pull your fucking socks up.

    lavender brown gets more hate for how she handles unrequited romantic feelings than snape does and i find that incredibly disturbing

    Also Cho Chang gets more hate for crying and grieving over the death of her boyfriend, than Snape does for literally abusing and terrorizing children because he couldn’t have Lily Evans.

    • Guy in my class:   Sir, what if we had a gay P.E. teacher? That'd be bad because he'd be looking at all the guys in shorts.
    • Teacher:   You're assuming that all gay teachers are paedophiles.
    • Guy:   Well...yeah.
    • Teacher:   Carl I absolutely promise you that NO ONE in this school wants to have sex with you
