I'm a ginger and I have a lot of rage.

"You are a unique person and you have to be yourself. You can’t be anybody else; you can’t lead anybody else’s life. You have to be comfortable in your own skin and you have to be confident about who you are, whether you’re working at Twitter or running for office. And that is hard to do….and yet it’s all doable once you relax and decide, ‘You know what? This is no dress rehearsal. This is it for me. I want to be who I am.’ You be yourself. Easiest advice to say, hardest advice to follow."

You can tell a girl she’s smart her whole life, encourage her in school, buy her a chemistry set, send her to math camp, help her apply for college scholarships in STEM fields, and she’s still eventually going to walk into a classroom, a lab, or a job interview and have some man dismiss her existence, deny her funding, pass her over for a promotion, or take credit for her work. How about you work on getting those assholes out of power and quit telling me not to call girls pretty.

Goodbye to Cloth Diapers, and Ideal Motherhood - NYTimes.com

This might be the most important essay on motherhood I have read since becoming a mother. This shit is hard. Let’s stop making it harder on each other. Love and truth ladies! Show me your shit-stained shirts, your blank-walled nurseries, your sugar-besotted babies yearning to be free of kale!

This.

Lentil Liddell is one year old today!

Here are some of her favorite things:

  • Family walks in the garden
  • Riding in her taxi
  • Splash parks
  • Playing with buckles
  • Sitting in her high chair
  • Reading books
  • Making messes and “cleaning” them up
  • Singing songs

I can’t believe this kiddo came out of me one year ago. I’m all sorts of emotional about today. But mostly happy. She’s a joy, this baby of mine.

"I’ve been a deep believer my whole life. 18 years as a Southern Baptist. More than 40 years as a mainline Protestant. I’m an ordained pastor. But it’s just stopped making sense to me. You see people doing terrible things in the name of religion, and you think: ‘Those people believe just as strongly as I do. They’re just as convinced as I am.’ And it just doesn’t make sense anymore. It doesn’t make sense to believe in a God that dabbles in people’s lives. If a plane crashes, and one person survives, everyone thanks God. They say: ‘God had a purpose for that person. God saved her for a reason!’ Do we not realize how cruel that is? Do we not realize how cruel it is to say that if God had a purpose for that person, he also had a purpose in killing everyone else on that plane? And a purpose in starving millions of children? A purpose in slavery and genocide? For every time you say that there’s a purpose behind one person’s success, you invalidate billions of people. You say there is a purpose to their suffering. And that’s just cruel."
