I’d very much like to punch a feminist.
I’d never, ever hurt a lady but I’d be happy to punch a feminist.
It’d bring me great joy.

"When I was about 20 years old, I met an old pastor’s wife who told me that when she was young and had her first child, she didn’t believe in striking children, although spanking kids with a switch pulled from a tree was standard punishment at the time. But one day, when her son was four or five, he did something that she felt warranted a spanking–the first in his life. She told him that he would have to go outside himself and find a switch for her to hit him with.
The boy was gone a long time. And when he came back in, he was crying. He said to her, “Mama, I couldn’t find a switch, but here’s a rock that you can throw at me.”
All of a sudden the mother understood how the situation felt from the child’s point of view: that if my mother wants to hurt me, then it makes no difference what she does it with; she might as well do it with a stone.
And the mother took the boy into her lap and they both cried. Then she laid the rock on a shelf in the kitchen to remind herself forever: never violence. And that is something I think everyone should keep in mind. Because if violence begins in the nursery one can raise children into violence.”

Things are rough all over. Fuck gender roles!
Licia Ronzulli, member of the European Parliament, has been taking her daughter Vittoria to the Parliament sessions for two years now.
Just dare say once again that women are weak!
im gonna be that kind of mum.
The children will be future leaders.
This chick takes her kid to work.
WOW. SO STRONG. MUCH RESPECT. VERY POWER.
It’s not like parliament is a place for children you know. I bet that kid has been disruptive more than once, and that people have been chapped about it. Does everyone else get to take their kids? Should that just be written in there, that if you have kids, feel free to bring them to work whenever the fuck you want?
While I agree that a governmental job should provide child-care, this kind of behavior is not okay. And it certainly doesn’t prove anything about this woman’s “strength”. Like should she get a fucking gold medal for this or something?
No. She just brought her fucking spawn to work.
That’s it. Proves nothing.
I see it differently.
Assuming the kids didn’t make too much a disruption. I think the children being there is a good thing for them, and the people there as the politicians must also factor them into their decision making.
I’ve seen people in these situations more distracted by solitaire on their laptops. The kids are fine. (usually.)
The workplace is not there for children. You’re there to work. Not to play part time parent. She has a job to do. The other people in the room have a job to do. You think that one kid is going to sway their decision making process?
We all have distractions. The difference between solitaire and a fucking kid is that solitaire doesn’t start screaming and wanting to run around the FUCKING HOUSE OF PARLIAMENT!
But the real point of this is:
This woman is labelled strong because she brought her kid to work. How is that in any way a strong decision. It’s disrespectful to the people around you—though, I hardly think that she brought the kid without permission—and it’s rude. The workplace isn’t a place for kids. Build a fucking day care for the fuckers if it means so much to you to have your kids in the same fucking building as you, but don’t bring them to your meetings, to your offices, and not to the fucking house of parliament!
You seriously need to think about what you’re saying. If the kid was a disruption she wouldn’t be allowed to take her in, and I’m sure the people in charge there know how to actually do their job. I don’t get where your anger is coming from without any evidence whatsoever that having her child there is a disruption. You basically just reblogged this and spewed your usual unintelligible vitriol because you made an assumption and don’t think it’s that cool for women to take their child to work occasionally. Get a grip.
Erm, children are disruptive in the workplace. Always. You know why? Because they’re fucking children and they’re not made to be quiet and sit nicely. They like playing, and talking and yelling. You have no evidence that this kid isn’t disruptive, either; so what the fuck is your point?
BRINGING CHILDREN TO THE WORKPLACE WITH YOU, to tag around and follow you and blah blah blah, is not okay. There should be governmental run day cares provided for civil servants, but there isn’t. That doesn’t mean you just get to bring your kid into work because you feel like it.
Also, she’s a member of parliament. She could afford a day care service, don’t you think? It’s not like she’s a single mother working at fucking Walmart.
You’re still not really making sense. She seems to have taken her child to court 5 times over 2 years. Once again you’re just assuming that the child is disruptive and getting mad about it. I don’t think it’s particularly noble of her to do so but how someone who has nothing to do with the European Parliament can get so mad about something they know nothing about/isn’t really a big deal is beyond me.
So, because there are only five pictures, she must have only done it five times. Actually, someone did some research on this for us, and I’ll be reblogging what that person said momentarily. It was more than fives times.
DO YOU HAVE CHILDREN?! Have you ever been around children?! Children are fucking disruptive BY NATURE! I have a problem with it because people are calling her strong for…nothing. Absolutely nothing. And because children aren’t supposed to be in the workplace. It’s not a place for children, it’s a place for work, and anything that distracts you from your work is not good, and it’s time out of your employers pocket, and in this case, TIME OUT OF THE FUCKING PEOPLES RIGHT TO HAVE NON-DISTRACTED MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT!
I freak out just the same about MP’s having laptops and shit in Parliament too. It’s a distraction. We put them there to fucking do a job, not babysit or play solitaire or check facebook, or whatever.
My Mother brought me into work over the summer one year. She was VP at Glaxo, and thought it would be good for me to see her as a strong woman who can hold her weight in a male dominated profession.
But I was 9. The social impact didn’t land on me. I wasn’t inspired. I was bored. Work is boring. We spend over a third of our lives at our jobs. Why expose our kids to that before we have to?
