"Who is to rule?"
I'm Katelyn. Some people call me Kat, but then again, some people call me, "Hey, you," so that's as may be. I have all this space to tell you about myself, but I don't know what you'd like to know, so here's what I've got:

I'm 21.

I go to Ole Miss.

I'm in a sorority.

I'm also in a lot of fandoms.

When I was a little girl, I was convinced I had magical powers, and I don't think I've ever grown out of that belief.

I'm a dog person; cat people to the left.

I'm the type of person that starts saying things ironically and then slowly starts saying them for real.

I just want to write books and read books and roll around in books like a dragon on her gold.

If you ever feel like interacting with me, please do it. I'll probably love you forever.

I’ll never punish my daughter for saying no.

The first time it comes out of her mouth, I’ll smile gleefully. As she repeats “No! No! No!” I’ll laugh, overjoyed. At a young age, she’ll have mastered a wonderful skill. A skill I’m still trying to learn. I know I’ll have to teach her that she has to eat her vegetables, and she has to take a nap. But “No” is not wrong. It is not disobedience.

1. She will know her feelings are valid.
2. She will know that when I no longer guide her, she still has a right to refuse.

The first time a boy pulls her hair after she says no, and the teacher tells her “boys will be boys,” we will go to her together, and explain that my daughter’s body is not a public amenity. That boy isn’t teasing her because he likes her, he is harassing her because it is allowed. I will not reinforce that opinion. If my son can understand that “no means no” so can everyone else’s.

3. She owes no one her silence, her time, or her cooperation.

The first time she tells a teacher, “No, that is wrong,” and proceeds to correct his public school, biased rhetoric, I’ll revel in the fact that she knows her history; that she knows our history. The first time she tells me “No” with the purpose and authority that each adult is entitled, I will stop. I will apologize. I will listen.

4. She is entitled to her feelings and her space. I, even a a parent, have no right to violate them.
5. No one has a right to violate them.

The first time my mother questions why I won’t make her kiss my great aunt at Christmas, I’ll explain that her space isn’t mine to control. That she gains nothing but self doubt when she is forced into unwanted affection. I’ll explain that “no” is a complete sentence. When the rest of my family questions why she is not made to wear a dress to our reunion dinner. I will explain that her expression is her own. It provides no growth to force her into unnecessary and unwanted situation.

6. She is entitled to her expression.

When my daughter leaves my home, and learns that the world is not as open, caring, and supportive as her mother, she will be prepared. She will know that she can return if she wishes, that the real world can wait. She will not want to. She will not need to. I will have prepared her, as much as I can, for a world that will try to push her down at every turn.

7. She is her own person. She is complete as she is.

I will never punish my daughter for saying no. I want “No” to be a familiar friend. I never want her to feel that she cannot say it. She will know how to call on “No” whenever it is needed, or wanted.

It’s called the ‘Lykoi’.  Due to a genetic mutation in a domestic shorthair cat, the Lykoi has no hair around its eyes, nose, ears and muzzle, giving it a werewolfish appearance.

Speaking of Marvel’ great casting… Just thought of this one. 

Yes! Thank you! That’s another perfect example.

Thus sealing my belief that Marvel has been setting up these movies since the turn of the 20th century. Perhaps even the 19th century. Beginning with a small secret and rather steampunk pioneer genetic engineering facility. It was hit and miss for a while there, but eventually after much trial and error, they got it right (which explains why it took a couple of attempts before they discovered Ruffalo to be the perfect Hulk).

The cast of the MCU were created by Marvel in test tubes, then released into the world to begin their acting careers before mysterious men in black Marvel suits swooped in to reclaim them again.

I think we have enough proof now to blow the lid on this wide open and make millions with the publication of our tell-all book. Okay I’m just going to shut up now. Damnit. I’ve said too much already…

I am so completely ready to believe this theory. Completely.

It’s sort of horrifying that we all know what they’re talking about without them really saying it.. that it’s become that much of a norm in our society that we just know.

we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.
