Head Trip - All For Boys

Update is a little late this week, because real life (.. andBattlestarGalacticaSHUTUP) got in the way a bit. But here it is, better late than never.

Before anyone asks, this didn't actually happen... to me. I read some one's Livejournal post where they witnessed a woman actually said this to her daughter. And it annoyed me greatly. Because... DUDE. What the HELL.

I started reading books at age seven (I finished a Nancy Drew six-set in that week), and I taught myself after watching my mom read aloud to us. WTF? I can't stop grinning at how stupid this sounds! Before I finished middle school I had finished LotR and the Hobbit, Silmarillion, and Unfinished Tales! Never had a problem with books and boys before (most boys I know had never read the Hunger Games until a month ago...). Whatever. It's still hilarious.

Who would say this to their daughter?

Unless Mommy was a cheerleader that thought looks and boys were more important than having a brain

And for the record, I landed my husband by reading big books. Most of the guys I know thinks that's hot  (Hubby actually doesn't read much...)

I met the first guy I ever had a real crush on because he was reading Lord of the RIngs at age 12 and, at age 10, I started reading over his shoulder and thought it was fascinating.

Of course, he later turned into an abusive jackhole, but most guys I hang out with think my books are hot.

a little part of me died after reading that a mother actually said this X(

*looks at all her door stopper books* Well, that explains everything!:ohnoes:

Heh, just kidding. I'm glad my mother isn't like this. She was an even bigger bookworm than me, when my age, and has always encouraged me to read.

It's too bad there are people like this woman out there, not teaching their children anything useful. I'm not a parent, but I don't need to be to know this is wrong.

Wow. I CAN NOT wait for that girl to be President and just fuck her mom over by saying she read huge-ass books to be their XD

Sometimes I refuse to believe that people can be so dumb. Then I remember the Darwin Awards and I believe it.

Yes, Yes I would *Picks up my medium bookcase with +200 books* . If we show this comic in court, no educated jury would ever convict us.

*offers several encyclopedias (Yeah that's right I read them like books [I are lame])* Remember to wrap them in plastic, we just want to hurt the mother not the lovely literature ^^

It's okay... I read school and university textbooks like actual books. :D

Speaking of which, they weigh a TONNE- and we could read her extracts describing the development of feminism as we beat some sense in to her.

I would also like to join! The freakishly large stacks of books in my room need to be put to even more good use than me just reading them!
kweenmaeve's avatar
Yay! Can't wait!
