We’re aiming to. I don’t want to say 100% yes, but we’re working to make it happen.
I’m assuming so. All of my clothes still fit the same. I didn’t consider myself out of shape before I started, but I wasn’t really exercising that much. Now I skate 8-10 hours a week, so I’ve definitely put on a lot of muscle. I feel stronger!
It’s great cardio! But I mean, it depends on why you’re working out. I’m not sure if it’s the best for losing weight. I’ve put on 10 pounds since I started.
- Captain: There's a bunny that got into my backyard and can't figure out how to get out. I think we should give him a name.
- Angelina: how about dodopoophead
- Captain: what
- Angelina: dodopoophead
- Captain: I don't get it
- Angelina: ..... that's because you're a dodopoophead
So tired of it.
Because seriously, nobody batted an eye when I was little and walked out of the theater after seeing Toy Story proclaiming, “Woody is so cool! I want to be just like him!”
Nobody cared that I was a little girl looking up to a male character. Not a single person would have been upset if I wanted a Sully toy, or if I admired Simba more than Nala. No parents said to their daughters, “No, I’m not taking you to see Up! because there’s no females for you to look up to!”
Because as long as it was men being awesome, parents decided that our kids could see through typical gender stereotypes. They decided, “my kid can learn something from this film even though she is a girl and that character is a boy.”
But as soon as the roles are reversed everyone is up in arms about it. Well that’s nonsense. Because if you’re really not sexist, you’ll realize that it’s just as fine for your daughter to like Finding Nemo as it is for your son to like Brave.
So get off your sexist pedestal, stop complaining, and take your son to see Brave. And hope to all that is holy that he learns something from it…like how to fight against the current patriarchal system. Because he sure as hell isn’t going to learn that from you.
