Army wife. Atheist - Born OK the first time. Psychologist. Liberal. Pro-choice. Southern.

My husband, M, just returned from yet another deployment.

For some reason, the public thinks that the military is full of uber religious super right-winged people. Here are my honest thoughts about being married to a Soldier while being an independent liberal educated female Atheist.

Apparently some vegans are telling people not to eat honey to support bees.STOP. STOP NOW.DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW BEES WORK?Buy honey (local if possible) -> support beekeepers -> support bees.I swear people don’t even think this stuff out. Beekeepers provide bees with an environment in which they can live, and are encouraged to thrive. Bees then have a big huge giant person who can deal with any threats to the hive. Yes, honey is a winter food supply for bees, but beekeepers (unless they’re dicks, in which case they’d be shooting themselves in the foot) will NEVER take too much honey from a hive, and will always ensure that bees have enough food. Think about it, you’re not going to starve a source of income/hobby, are you?So now.Support beekeepers.Support bees.buzz.

I had to reblog just for “DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW BEES WORK?" because it made me realize that some people really don’t!

save them

SAVE THEM!!


Some people have no idea how fucked we will all be if the bees die. So unbelievably fucked!!!

You absolutely don’t have to. If you expose them to religion as a question, giving them the ability to think for themselves, they will probably choose none. I’m a third-generation Atheist. We were taught about all religions but they were presented as the myths that we know they are. No one religion was greater than another. We were free to ask questions and compare the religions. It was a whole lot like Santa Claus. Some people really believe. And some people have grown out of it. We also got to discover for ourselves the hate that most religious people spewed at us as kids. It wasn’t the children, it was the childrens’ parents who banned us from their houses at 12 because we said the word ‘Atheist’ out loud. You cannot shelter your kids from religion. It’s everywhere. But you can give them the tools to think critically. I’m not concerned about my future children being religious. Not at all. I will present the facts and they will be given the opportunity to chose.

Quote reblogged from Positive Connotation with 3,485 notes

The only person you can legally hit in the United States is a child.

Hit your partner, and you’ll be arrested for domestic violence. Hit another adult, and you’ll be arrested for assault. But hit a 4-year-old, and you can call yourself a “loving father”. That’s completely screwed up.

It should be against the law for a fully grown adult to slap, hit, spank, punch, switch, whoop, whip, paddle, kick or belt a defenseless child in the name of discipline. But it is legal, and new research in the Journal of Family Psychology suggests that the average 4-year-old is hit 936 times a year.

If study after study conclusively proves that hitting your kids doesn’t work as a disciplinary method, and worse, it has long-term damaging impact to their psychology and makes your kids more aggressive, why do we as a society allow it?

I reckon if more people understood this there would be a lot less victim blaming when it comes to rape.
