Recently, Tumblr person gazelledeerdoe asked a question about breastfeeding. She’s not a mom, so her question to me (in response to one of my posts) was innocent—she genuinely didn’t know what breastfeeding mothers put up with. I felt our exchange was funny and lighthearted, and she now understands their plight.
Unfortunately, because of her initial question, she’s now getting a flood of hate messages, including at least one person who suggested that she kill herself.
I know my original post has gone into the Tumblr ether, so asking folks who may be just now discovering it to stop attacking this girl is like screaming into a hurricane. But, I’m gonna do it anyway.
FUCKING STOP HARASSING THIS GIRL!
And, if any of you care, please send her a non-anon message of support. Let her know the anon haters are the worst kind of cowards, not worth her time or energy. The people who matter are the ones who show their face, who understand we’re all learning and who support the blameless.
Tumblr Tuesday: Mumblrs Edition
Travels the world on behalf of Mom Bloggers for Social Good, a global coalition of mothers who strive to make motherhood easier and safer, no matter where they live. These are her photos.
Because you don’t have to give birth to be a good mom.
Because you don’t have to like your kids all the time to be a good mom.

Nice to see Tumblr moms getting some Tumblr love.
Your friend and mine, punkdad, has a noble mission. He wants to get to the next Dad 2.0 Summit to represent a facet of online dads that — I can say from experience — are under-represented at the conference.
I won’t go into the details of his story because he already did that. I will say I totally agree with him that he’d be a great representative.
And even if you disagree, you’re a total dolt if you don’t want one of the rad shirts he’s selling to fund his trip. (If you really don’t want a shirt, you can also just donate.) Let’s help get our friend to the conference to show brands and dads that there are more types of fathers out there than they realize.
Seriously, because I’m doing a shitty job of it.
If you’d like to see #parenting on the Explore page, please reblog the ever-loving shit out of this. Thanks.
Ask me stuff, if you like. Parenting, non-parenting, electro-physics — (almost) nothing is off-limits. Although, douchebaggery will be summarily disposed of.
Introducing Jaxon Prescott!
I just saw this! YAY! Congrats.
