Alright, I don’t care if they pulled it off the shelf already or not, I am pissed about this Kat Von D/Sephora lipstick shit. I don’t even want to write the name of it on here but for those who don’t know it’s “Celebutard” How effing stupid is that? ALL involved should be ashamed of themselves! How many people did that name go by before it was released…and everyone at Sephora and their marketing department thought this was OK?

QUIT SAYING THE R WORD AND TARD!

It is so unbelievably appalling to hear people use such degrading and hurtful words so flippantly….and it’s all to PRETEND to be cool!!

UGH!!!

I am beyond disgusted. Obviously I wouldn’t even wipe my ass with anything from Sephora or Kat Von D anymore but I hope they learn a lesson from all of this backlash and at least consider donating to a charity that will benefit someone they’ve offended. I’m sure there are SEVERAL. In my humble opinion, that’s the very least they could do.

So what does the special needs community say to this? Channing Tatum says it best-

WHAT DOES KAT THINK?

“It’s just a f*cking lipstick”-Kat Von D

What do I think?

I’ve said it a million times, and I’ll say it again-

ACTING LIKE YOU’RE BETTER THAN OTHER PEOPLE DOESN’T MAKE YOU BETTER. IT MAKES YOU AN ASSHOLE. Kat Von D is an asshole.

10 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PEOPLE WHO HAVE AUTISM

10 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PEOPLE WHO HAVE AUTISM

Image

1. NEVER under-estimate an individual because they are on the spectrum. Some of the most intelligent, interesting, and most capable people I know have Autism. 

2. Don’t assume that people with autism are emotionless or uncaring if they don’t respond in a way you would expect others to respond. Often times people on the spectrum have a harder time displaying and sorting their feelings and emotions. Sometimes they see things so black and white that they may not see your side.

3. Do not judge someone’s behavior who has autism. Over-stimulation can cause their bodies to react and sensory issues often accompany ASD. Lights are much brighter, sounds are much louder, tastes and textures are much more intense. Even something as simple as being touched can hurt some people with autism if their sensory issues are off. It can be like an internal traffic jam of signals. Being helpful in these situations is much more useful than being judgmental.

4. Give people with autism the time to get their thoughts out, it can take a bit longer for individuals with asd to decipher and process information.

5. Don’t make comparisons. If you have met one person who has autism then you have met ONE person who has autism. Everybody is different.

6. Offering choices can be very helpful, but don’t give out too many choices, it can be overwhelming.

7. Routine is a very important part of most people’s lives who live with autism. If the daily routine gets messed up it can make things confusing or overwhelming. Be understanding.

8. People who have autism are VERY capable of love and CAN be close to their parents, friends, etc.. I actually had a doctor tell me that my son wouldn’t have a close relationship with me if he had autism. That is FALSE.

9. DON’T assume that people who have autism don’t understand you. Non-verbal or not, assuming makes an ass out of U and ME. 

10. RAISE THE BAR. Don’t hold someone back because they are on the spectrum and you think they can’t do something. Let them try.

Why my husband is quite possibly the most embarrassing person on earth

Why my husband is quite possibly the most embarrassing person on earth

zz

This isn’t a new story but unfortunately I fear it will live in my head forever so I’m thinkin maybe if I get it all typed out it will vacate my brain! First off, I should start by saying i don’t think my husband “tries” to embarrass the ever-living hell out of me, for some reason it just comes naturally to him. I know some of you can relate!
So here’s the background story- we were going to his best friends house because it was his daughter’s birthday. I know his friend, his friend’s wife, and a few other people who were there but the majority of them were total strangers. And to be clear, I really don’t know his friend’s wife all that well.
Ok now to the meat of the story- we were on our way there and I had some of those big little tikes toys in the back of the hubs truck to take to the kids but they needed washed off. We stopped at a car wash to clean them and the hubby got out and did all the work but he left me in the truck sweating my ass off! ( He refuses to run the ac if the vehicle is stopped ) so there I am sitting in the 100 degree cab sweating my little ass off and it is taking him ages! I looked down and saw my boobs were even starting to sweat and I was really starting to get concerned that I’d have boob sweat all over my shirt when we made our entrance at the party ( not attractive)… And mind you at this point we were already late so all attention would most definitely be on us when we arrived. So I’m desperately searching through the truck console to find some tissues or napkin or something to wipe off with and finally!! AHHHHHH! The angels all sang in unison and I found some freaking napkins!! I quickly shoved them in both bras cups and yelled to the hubby to hurry the hell up because I was roasting like a damned thanksgiving turkey!
Fast forward we arrive at the party and say our hellos. We eat some food and chit-chat with everyone. As we are talking to my husband’s friend’s wife my husband keeps giving me this weird ass look. I roll my eyes at him and continue to talk to her and all of a sudden this freaking genius reaches over and pulls the napkin out that I forgot was in my bra!!! Right in front of this girl I barely know! And did I say ” Oh my god! How embarrassing, it’s completely his fault!!”? No. I stood there so unbelievably mortified that this chick surely thinks I stuff my bra because my brilliant husband saw a little piece of napkin peeking out and thought he’d “save me some embarrassment ” by pulling it out in the middle of the party!!

Yea. That really happened…over the summer. It has taken me this long to see the humor. I bet they still think I stuff my bra. :p

Tonight Bug accidentally used shampoo on his body instead of body wash. He got out of the shower and asked me if he’s going to grow body hair now! I almost snorted, I laughed so hard!
