Un-Fucking-Cool

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.

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.

You know what I hate? F’in cancer. I’m feeling pretty good having just kicked a little sarcoma ass myself but I’d love it if you’d get involved in the Movember movement, specifically by supporting The Daddy Complex in his effort to raise vital awareness and funds for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.
Grow a ‘stache, give a little, and kick cancer where it hurts. Rock on.

What she said.
(And thanks, lady. You rock.)

The surgical oncologist, Dr. W., just called re: pathology and the margins are large and FREE OF SARCOMA. I still have a ways to recovering from this surgery as well as follow-up care and screenings to look forward to but it looks like there will be no need for chemo or radiation at this point. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

YAY! Awesome news.
