I'm actually really pretty lame. My name is Deirdre. My preferred gender pronouns are the lady ones. I like animals, drawing, acting, and sculpting, and talking about myself.
Why bring back old memes when we can back this song?
2004 is calling me… whispering

“Asexual isn’t an orientation, it’s for plants.”
"You can’t be asexual if you/you’re……"
“Stop trying to be some *~special snowflake~*.”
“You just haven’t found the right person yet.”
“You’re probably just gay.”
“You just need some good sex.”
“You must have a hormone problem or you’re depressed or something.”
Women’s sexuality is something that I’m obsessed with. I think it’s weird that teenage girls know more about giving blow jobs than they do about masturbation. It makes me sick to my stomach that so many young girls think sex is just about a guy finishing.

This is true! We’re using some ASL with Viva, and her little hands are always going!
I’ve never talked about this before! (I don’t think??)
I don’t recall my daughter “babbling” with her hands as an infant (but I wasn’t really looking for it either), but I do know that by teaching her the signs for “more” and “all done” she was able to express her consent by 6 or 7 months. If we were dancing, she could tell me she wanted more or she was done. Cuddling, eating, going for a walk, tickling, playing, etc. etc. etc. The only teeny tiny downside was the heartbreaking way she kept signing “all done,” ”all done,” ”all done,” while getting her 9-month shots.
More and Done were our first signs, then we added Milk, Food, Book, Outside, Mom, Dad, Brother and Toilet (which we used, at first, as needing a diaper change, and then by 18 months for her to indicate she needed to use the actual toilet). We had others as well, but those were the signs used most often.
Seriously, signing with your baby is incredibly easy, completely free, and gives them the ability to communicate their needs and wants to you WAY before they are able to talk. If you only follow one piece of advice I’ve thrown at y’all over the year, THIS ONE will make both you and your child’s lives so much easier.
Sign with your babies.
PSA over. :-) ~JJ
when I have children i plan to teach them all ASL. its something i’m passionate about.
Signing with my kids was one of the best things I ever did for them.
The Signing Time DVDs were a godsend and had the added bonus of making them curious about others who signed rather than afraid.
My oldest daughter plans to go to Hebrew Seminary to be a rabbi who works specifically with the deaf.
