Once in a while I get annoyed by people on this site for dumb things. Other times the things that annoy me are not so dumb but they are just as irritating.
And then sometimes I feel like we all need to take a step back and calm the fuck down once in a while.
Tumblr isn’t going to solve racism or cissexim (a term that is HIGHLY problematic), but screaming at people who were born into their gender and racial identities through no choice of their own doesn’t help with anything either. I don’t know how we all get to that point, but maybe we need to step back and learn from children, because they often don’t see the things that we, as adults, use to separate people.
Okay. I have read several Little House books. When I was young even. And watched the show. But really, are you surprised when I say I haven’t read/seen things? It happens all the time, and you’re always shocked… ;)
But Anne of Green Gables!!!
And you’re right, I am often shocked by the things you haven’t read or seen and I should really stop
See, that’s what was missing in my situation: someone to champion the books & introduce them to me. My parents were not readers, & neither were most of my friends. I found things on my own, or accidentally - like my Nancy Drew obsession at the time.
I guess I was lucky. Books are a big thing in my family; for Christmas and birthdays, that’s pretty much all we buy each other now. If you need book recs, I’m your man! I make a point of finding books that my students will like (and I haven’t been wrong yet), so let me know if you need something to read.

And you call yourself a Canadian! I am judging you.
sothereff said:Thank you for not judging. ;) I was completely ignorant to their existence until I saw the movie as a miniseries one rainy weekend on public television. (I was probably around 13 at the time.) Then I became obsessed with PEI and all things Canada. :)
I love those books so much. And the movie. But mostly the books.
