Cosmo, you sexist piece of shit.
Oh boo. There’s Wanda, his wife, grinning evilly in the background as he’s saying it.
Besides, context is important. Remember what this episode was? "Queen for a Day." The one with Trixie Tang’s birthday?
The entire point of Wanda hitting Timmy with this wish was to teach a moral to him. Timmy was hitting a mental roadblock trying to come up with a birthday present for Trixie, not having a clue what “a girl” would want for her birthday. Cue the wish forcing him into a female body and… Still pretty much liking the exact same stuff. And as he later found out, Trixie liked the same things he did, even if gender norms didn’t fit for it all.
In the end, Timmy ends up giving Trixie the present she wanted in a comic book store, but fakes getting upset over it when he gives it to her because her friends thought it was only for boys. But, she WAS grateful.
And this moment? This right here? Our male protagonist, Timmy, is now getting playfully mocked by Cosmo for suddenly being a girl. That’s going to teach boys, through the eyes of Timmy, how stupid it is to be demeaning to females for being female.
This episode was basically a giant slap in the face to the idea of gender norms. And you’re still calling Cosmo sexist for reinforcing the moral, which is how stupid even casual sexism is?
Childhood is firmly not ruined, thank you.
"I’m not vaccinating my kids because they’ll build up immunity naturally anyway"
Excuse me, when I was born I reacted badly to the first round of injections given to me and didn’t have anymore - and I have never had an injection at any other point in my life. I’ve never had any serious illness in my life.
It’s the parents’ decision whether their young children have injections or not, not someone on the freaking internet.
It is well established that a small percentage of the population is unable to receive vaccinations for various medically valid reasons. The reason you did not get sick despite not being vaccinated is that you were protected by herd immunity. Herd immunity means that if enough people are vaccinated, diseases are much less likely to gain a foothold in the population due to there being very few available hosts. Those diseases, unable to find enough hosts to multiply and mutate, die off quickly and do not present a threat to the general population. Once vaccination levels begin to drop, however, herd immunity no longer protects those who are unable to be vaccinated (very young infants, those with immune deficiencies, those who are allergic to the inert contents of vaccines, etc…). As someone who is unable to be vaccinated, you should be urging everyone who is able to receive vaccines to get them. All of those people are what is standing between you and vulnerability to many deadly but preventable diseases. This is why vaccines are a public health issue, not a frivolous personal choice.

Okay so http://www.prequeladventure.com/ updated and
Let me just say that I really, really, think this is good
It can be frustrating to read, at first, because sometimes the character refuses to follow instructions, or doesn’t believe in herself, or gives in to the things she’s trying to put behind her, but
Despite her issues
Despite everything that has held her back
Despite losing every last thing she had
She’s starting to come back
She’s starting to get it
Sometimes… you have to go a little crazy.
And things might just turn to gold.
I helped Kazerad (of Prequel fame) out with some drawthread requests on /co/ today. He was burdened with the responsibility for not updating in 5 years, or so. Or months. One of those, I think.

2 - Long haired Katia.
3 - Katia Z, or something.
4 - Katia and the King.
5 - This is actually from another thread from the day before. Oh, that filthy weathervane.
