I complain about the mundane and get distracted by the ridiculous

I live in Minneapolis. I realize this makes me boring and irrelevant to most of tumblr. I stick around anyway.

I created Bringing Up Baby to satisfy my baby-makin' alter ego. If you like cute babies, poop and discussion of the state of my vahj, you'll probably enjoy reading it.

Yesterday, my husband and I got in an argument over a feminist issue and he tried to end the argument by “respectfully disagreeing” with me. I told him that’s just something he said to make himself feel better because he thinks it makes him a better person to “respectfully disagree” when really all it does it make me look like the bad guy. He disagreed and said I just didn’t understand how to respectfully disagree with people.

I feel like my posts this morning sort of prove his point.

But srsly, y’all? Some things are just right and wrong. Some opinions I just don’t have to respect. Just because we’re all entitled to them doesn’t mean they have to be respected.

Or am I just a bitch?

Also?

Also,

Just because you, your dad, your husband, your sister — whoever — is a cop, doesn’t mean you automatically have to assume all cops are as good as your loved one (because our loved ones NEVER do any wrong, right?). I mean, for fucks sake, #notALLcops. Why does that even need to be a thing? Why can’t we all acknowledge the racism that exists within our law enforcement branch and still know not EVERY individual is racist? JFC.

I’m a mom. I can still acknowledge that there are shitty moms out there. So if a mom kills her child, I don’t immediately rush to her defense and talk about how no one understands mothering and the kid was really naughty and what the fuck ever.

I mean, obviously my example is extreme, but I am so fucking sick of seeing everyone who has a cop in the family try to justify the murder of Michael Brown. Andplusalso, how do none of them recognize that all of this is so mich bigger than one murdered kid? It’s about the way an entire race of people is treated (and targeted and persecuted and murdered) by the police force.

My brother is a cop, and I love and respect him. But at least I can acknowledge that even if my brother is a good cop, there’s plenty of racist asshole cops out there. My one brother doesn’t make the entire police force perfect.

This is a rant. A pre-8am rant. Sorry folks, the ol’ fb has me fired up today.

The lies that continue to spread about Michael Brown on my facebook feed are making me ragestroke.

Why do I check Twitter before bed? It only makes me angry.

Sigh. Police can’t police themselves.

Micheal Brown is being laid to rest today. The family has asked for a day of peace without protest during the funeral proceedings. #staywoke #insolidarity

I choke up reading about this because I find myself from time to time forgetting that this isn’t simply a movement. That all of what is happening in Ferguson is happening because someone died. It sounds ridiculous to admit, but I keep forgetting. I keep forgetting that a mother lost her son. Senselessly. It absolutely breaks my heart.

Give in to the soft pretzel — it can do more than you think. 

This is relevant to my interests.

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.
