if you give kids zero restrictions they’ll become the nicest fucking kids ever who never do drugs or get into trouble i know because my parents let me do nothing but eat chicken nuggets all day and read hentai until 4am and i am a straight A student
Seriously though this seems to be the case with a ton of people I know, if you don’t restrict them all the time they actually do better and are mentally healthier
WHY DON’T PARENTS UNDERSTAND THIS?!?
there’s a big difference between giving zero restrictions and allowing kids to be themselves. i don’t think it’s even possible to raise a kid with no restrictions, not unless you want them eating paint and sticking forks into wall sockets! but giving them minimal restrictions, letting them find out who they are and letting them become the best they can be at whatever that is, that’s fucking perfect. my folks did that and i never got in trouble - never ditched school, never got detention, sure as hell never got in trouble with the police. they raised me to make my own decisions. that necessarily involves placing some restrictions on the kid, at least until they’ve developed their own common sense.
Can u believe there are plants that are illegal
Can you believe there is love that is illegal
can you believe it’s not butter
the fact that Tumblr can fit weed, bestiality and diary products all into one post doesn’t even phase me anymore
i really dont think they meant bestiality
I love that someone thought, “What kind of love is illegal?”, then thought about that cow with the come hither eyes who always listened, always understood…

A. If you could get away with one murder in your lifetime without any legal, social, or emotional repercussions, would you kill someone?
absolutely, positively, no question about it. it might take me a while to decide on the person - several come immediately to mind! (and no, i’m not telling you who.) i don’t think it would be someone i knew personally, though there is one person i used to know who made me believe in the concept of pure evil. i also believe in karma, and i believe that he’s already gotten his cosmic punishment.
chances are i’d pick a political figure whose policies cause great harm to the earth and/or humanity in general.
Y. Do looks mean anything to you? Don’t lie, could you fall in love with someone you thought was ugly?
oh dear… this one’s a toughie. on the one hand, i tend to become attracted to people over time, as i get to know them. i need to know if someone is a genuinely good person with a good heart before i’d even be open to getting emotionally involved. no matter how good-looking someone was, i would never agree to a date with a stranger - not even a meal with the express purpose of getting to know each other!
on the other hand, i have to admit there are a few physical characteristics that really turn me off. the moment i see someone has one or more of those characteristics, they get friendzoned.* even if i’ve gotten to know someone online and can see the potential for a romantic relationship, if upon meeting them i am physically turned off, that’s it. no amount of kindness, bonding, or general awesomeness will change my mind.
that sounds horrible, but it’s the truth. maybe it’s because the physical side of a relationship is extremely important to me? some people would be perfectly happy to be in a non-sexual relationship, or one without much sexual compatibility. i am not and never will be one of those people.
*(sorry, i know a lot of you hate the word, but remember that this is what it meant before getting monopolized by the dudebros - giving someone ‘just a friend’ status with zero hope for advancement, no matter how charming they turn out to be. if you’ve ever said to someone who secretly adores you “i wish i could find a partner just like you! (but you know, not you)” then you have friendzoned that person. every single one of us has had it done to us, usually when we were younger, because young people are particularly oblivious. you don’t have to owe somebody anything to have the power to break their heart.)
