AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!

Now that I’ve gotten that out of my system….I am going to put on here the response I wanted to write to an email i got from a parent. i can not put her correspondence online, but suffice it to say she was rude, demanding, condescending, insulting, and cutting at best.

Dear parent,

    Thank you so much for interrupting my short and valuable time with your petty concerns fours days after the incident in question. An email expressing your confusion, concern, and wish to understand what occurred would have been met with far more pleasantness; however, your mudslinging and bitter tone left me a  bit perplexed. Honestly, I have never before been met with such unprofessional-ism and blatant vulgarity in my life, and am surprised you felt it necessary to stoop to that level to have yourself heard. All that aside please let me address your concerns.

     I do in fact believe my students, and usually give them the benefit of the doubt; however I caught your student red-handed, well red-liped, as it were. You may feel you student is well behaved and never gives anyone any problems, but you are mistaken. I will agree your student is fairly well behaved and we know your child receives good marks in school; however, your students inability to stop talking and their attitude do not make them pleasant to have in the classroom. I am also not the only teacher who has a problem with your students talking and or attitude. You may allow eye rolling, insecent noise, and laziness in your home but I, as a trusted an degree/certificate holding adult responsible for ensuring my students go into the world well formed, educated,and driven individuals, do not permit such behavior in my classroom.

         Your student did not like my class because I do not let students sit like bumps on a log and do nothing all semester long. I also move students around so they aren’t always sitting next to their best friend. Oh, and I don’t favor the popular kids. Your student was called “missy” by another teacher, an offense that really was not my business, because that teacher has 400 other student that he see’s once a week and your student was probably not doing anything, as per usual in connections classes, or as you so eloquently said, “a class that doesn’t matter”; funny I would think your all A student receiving a B would matter.  Or was that my study skills class at the end of each day that your student also takes with me that you were talking about? Because you have imparted on your student that none of it matters

       If you can not see the value of that much of your students education, 100 minutes a day, and are so displeased that you felt telling my principal they have “the worst teachers ever at your school”; why are you still sending your child to us? You “shouldn’t have to come down here over a class that doesn’t matter”? I am glad to see your child’s education is so important.

     Parent, it is possible your “little angel” makes mistakes because your child is a child. it is also possible you child while usually sweet and well behaved needs a serious priority check and attitude adjustment. It is also not unfathomable that you need to learn to breathe, take a chill pill, and learn how to address other adults. It is ridiculous that you wrote a blanket letter of reprimand to me, written to the principal including the offenses of other teacher. It is down right scoffabel that after I wrote back a very professional, unnecessarily apologetic, and well thought and written response that you came back with something even more offensive and poorly written than before. Also when a teacher offers to meet with you over your concerns saying you don’t have time for them is rude, but blaming you three year old is pathetic. My mother managed to take care of me and two brothers while pregnant with a third while my father was deployed to the middle east all while meeting regularly with my teachers and being the PTA president, so your argument is particularly invalid with me.

   In closing, you are the reason your child has a poor attitude and poor work ethic. You are the reason your child doesn’t get away with bed behavior, because you are and I quote “OB-NOX-ious”. It will be your fault when you child ends up a teenage drop out, or if they manage to make it through why they drop out of college over all those “classes that don’t matter”. Also classes that form your child physically, encourage your child to think outside the box, develop your child’s ability and talent, give your child life skills, and encourage your child to excel in multiple academic and professional areas are not something you should see as a waste of time.

    So please, but down the sherry and the bon-bons and actually pretend you care and stop blowing smoke because your baby got their feelings hurt and “their only free time” taken away. Spoiler alert: your kid isn’t perfect, your kid sees things their way, your kids is lazy, and your kid TALKS a lot.

SOOOOO I haven’t posted in a while because, A I’ve been SUPER busy, what with moving bc of flooding, a new puppy, and most excitedly my new job, B because despite having plenty to say or share i haven’t had tiem to get to tumblr, and C i was a bit well down and out with illness and junk soooooo ANYWHO now I am BACK (not sure how often but still)

MY UNCLE IS AN ASS!!! (an asshole in the fucking army probably harrasing lgbt community members in his squad if any of them aren’t to afraid to come out)

Michael (MY UNCLES STATUS)

So this whole Chick Fil A thing is pissing me off. The owner speaks his mind and he’s banned in Chicago and Boston? Isn’t this America? If people want to boycott the chain that’s fine, but to ban them is just another example of this administration destroying the country I love. Let’s make it right in November.

    • Michael (MY UNCLES COMMENT) Next person that speaks their opinion or beliefs around me is banned from my home and will be unfriended. Oh that’s not fair? Well I didn’t vote for this.

    • Angel L  Lol.. U da Man
    • Meghan  (MY RESPONSE)
      He isn’t banned in either city; however, the two mayors of the cities have vowed to work to keep them out of their cities which have laws protecting the LGBTTQQIAA community in the work place among other things due to the views he expressed. Also voting for a republican president in November isn’t going to change where these mayors stand on the issue. Also if two mayors trying to keep a discriminatory business out of their cities counts as “destroying the country”, no offense, but I’m not sure you’ve got your priorities straight. Why don’t we fix the poverty rate, healthcare policies, education, national debt (especially to foreign countries), employment rate, pork and barrel funding, human rights violations, and inequality first?

Not sure if it will be shown or not (it’s waiting for moderation) but this is what i commented on her blog:

A very interesting read, and thank you for the note of journalism. Please note this comes from a place of respect and humility. I applaud your charisma and courage in sharing your beliefs not only online but in a calm and loving manner to a friend of the LGBTQQAA community. I think you are a bit flawed in some points.
Marriage is about joining in a committed and loving union with the person who you will work tirelessly to get through the gates of heaven. 1601 “The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament.”84 While a gay couple can not procreate entirely of their own accord (just as a infertile couple can not) they can still work for the good of their spouse and the education of the children they raise. While I realize the catechism has much more to say on marriage this is the go to “definition” clause.
Your statement about contraception and the enjoyment of the sex act is also historically inaccurate: “But when our culture embraced contraception, I continued, for the first time in human history, the sexual act was severed from its life-giving potential in the societal psyche. People began to feel like they had a right to the pleasure of the sexual act, without having to give a second thought to any new life that might be created.” I will grant you since the introduction of the pill and the condom people engage in sex acts far more than they should and that, especially in this culture, the act of intercourse is not respected. However abortions have existed since the time of the early Egyptians and I’m sure you are aware of the orgies that occurred in BC cultures including Mesopotamia.
One thing not addressed in your conversation is the law of marriage. America has a separation of church and state. I do not begrudge individual churches or denominations or the Catholic Church not allowing homosexual marriages in their PRIVATE institution. However, marriage, outside of church, is a legal or PUBLIC matter that private institutions are trying to control. The founding fathers wanted separation of church and state for a reason, but people seem to have forgotten that; mostly the conservatives of this country which are so quick to hail the founding fathers as use them as support.
I will not use this as a soap box or a time to defend gay relationships, gay right, or even the inaccuracies of seeing homosexuality as wrong but I did wish to speak my mind at least a little bit. Thank you for your time.

What do you do when making pasta for a sick fiancee? Why keep it gay with some paint of course.  And then post it online so the world knows you’re gonna love her forever and ever amen.

For my baby.  She is my muse, my soul.  Her voice is my soft melody her breath my constant beat.  Her face the sun upon my shoulder her embrace the ground beneath my feet.  Without her I am weak and lonely but with her I can move mountains.  On this day 25 years ago she was brought into this world, and has been making it even more wonderful since.  She is my orchestra in the sky, my string quartet, my choir full of angels.  I have met life’s sweet match and I could not be happier.  Happy Birthday darling. All my love today and every birthday. xox
