Cousin 1 (age 9): Who do you think is prettier me or R? (R is her older sister who is siting right next to her)
Me: Why would you even ask us that?
Sis: What? What did you just say?
C!: I asked who is prettier. Are you deaf? (to my sis)
Sis; Okay, I’m not going to answer your question because it’s pointless and disrespectful.Two you don’t ask someone ‘are you deaf?’ like they are stupid. You’re using deaf like it’s an insult when it’s not. It’s a hearing impairment and you are being really rude..
C1: I wasn’t trying to be rude.
Sis: well you are being rude and disrespectful.
C1: i’m sorry.
Sis: Okay, just don’t ask or say that again.
Me (to my sis): O_O Who are you?!
C2 is playing a game where all the cousins are split into two groups, boys vs girls: How are we supposed to play with girls? They’re just pretty and weak.
Sis: Okay, I’m going to have to stop the game here. Girls are way more than just pretty. And we are not weak, there is a long line of established women who are warriors, leaders, owners, fighters, and athletes. Where did you get the idea of girls can only sit around and look pretty? Because right now you are surrounded by girls and we are way more than just pretty!
Aunt: he’s just a little boy. (he’s 11)
Sis: who will go grow up thinking his beliefs are valid and girls are pretty and weak unless someone corrects him!
I have a BAMF for a sister!
