I need feminism because most men’s restrooms still aren’t equipped with baby changing stations. As someone who was married to a man who had sole custody of his young son, I’m hyperaware that feminism means EQUALITY, not female superiority. Feminism should and does support a man’s right to be as much of a parent to his child(ren) as any mother is allowed/expected to be.
This is a constant problem for Mr. Tea and myself. We’ve got twins, so even though I can change one kid on the change table in the ladies’ room, he’s left standing sort of awkwardly in the lobby with a messy child while I change one, come back, and get the other.
Nobody’s suggesting that men aren’t parents, so the lack of change tables goes well beyond ‘gender role reinforcing’ and straight into ‘ridiculous’.
My dad actually almost got kicked out of a mall once for changing my brother in the womens room of a mall. The only reason they didn’t call the cops on him was because the ladies in the room supported him.
I’d never even considered this but I support it
So this happened
oh how the roles and opinions have changed when it comes to a young boy
DAILY MAIL READERS, LADIES AND GENTS
FYI, when it first happened with the girls, everyone was calling their parents unfit to raise children, and the girls were being called narcissistic and fame hungry cause they had their picture taken for news, while with the boy, everyone was so quick to jump to his and his family’s defense, calling it a smart haircut, and his hairstyle none of anyone’s business.
I just wonder. When did hair become more important than education?

The thing about Gary, for me, is that I love to hate Gary.
There are characters in this world that I think are shitty characters, the sort that should not be on my screen, that serve no purpose, that are written badly, or flatly, and a lot of these are “I’m so eeevil!” characters that are there just to be evil or bad or cause problems.
Gary is not one of those characters.
If we had come into the storyline of In the Flesh four years earlier, Gary would be one of the heroes of the story. Gary would have been one of those young soldiers, maybe 18-19 (since I’m pretty sure he was about the same age as Rick, with how they interacted, and Bill’s commentary about them chasing the same girl(s) etc), who was forced into a war where monsters suddenly became real. Monsters that hunted you, hunted your family and your friends and the members of your community. Monsters that wore the faces of the dead and consumed the living.
Gary would have, by his own admissions, been a scared-shitless boy fighting to keep his world safe. We would have watched him take strength from Jem Walker, who was probably just as scared, who was hurting from the loss of her brother, and we would have seen them band together. We would have seen Gary scrabbling to keep his friends and comrades, Dean among them, alive and safe. We would have seen him survive terrifying situations like the one he describes over lunch to Kieren and company, situations where he nearly died and it was only the sheer amount of adrenaline and Jem’s quick thinking that saved his life.
We would see a man who gave up the tail end of his young adulthood in order to fight in what was probably one of the most traumatizing wars in the history of the world, and I don’t think he was the sort who thought there was any other way to go about it. Fighting had to be done, and he was able to do it, expected to do it, so he did it.
Now take that person, and watch him as a cure is found for the rabid state of the undead. Watch him as he learns that the monsters he killed were actually people; mothers and fathers and sisters and brothers and lovers and children. Imagine the dissonance he feels, when he sees PDS sufferers acting like humans, and sees the people around him who used to look up to him turn around and tell him what he did was wrong, when literally there was no way they could have known better. Literally so many more people would have died if the HVF hadn’t been created and had fighters like Gary in their ranks. Had the Rising gone a different path, with no redeemed minds at the end, Gary would have done everything right back at the start.
Gary did exactly what I probably would have done, in the same situation; he fought for his own survival and for the survival of others.
Except, there ARE redeemed minds at the end of this path. The monsters DID turn out to be people, good people… but Gary cannot reconcile that in his mind. And you’re right, that’s a very human reaction to change like this.
So yes, I hate Gary. I hate him so much.
And I love every second of hating him, because I love that he gets to be a fleshed out character, too.
