Two Twitter Accounts


I don’t often get on Twitter, but when I do, I scroll through these Twitter feeds and laugh until I cry.

Exploding Unicorn chronicles the hilarious exchanges between a dad and his young daughters. His girls have the driest wit, and this family reminds me so much of my conversations with Erich — nerdy, random, and laugh-out-loud hysterical. #familygoals

Equally hilarious is manwhohasitall. My favorite feminist commentary is comedic — what better way to see inconsistencies and prejudices than by rolling on the floor laughing out loud? Manwhohasitall posts advice given to women who want to “have it all” — but for a male audience.

I can’t even handle this.

I’m crying.

Go check these guys out and spend an hour of your summer doing the only ab workout worth doing — laugh.

P.S. Follow me on Twitter too! (But I’m not funny. Sorry.)

    I have two random questions that have nothing to do with this post… is that ok?
    1) What does your (complementarian, Baptist) family think of your new egalitarian stance and church stance? Just curious about how they reacted and how you navigate that.
    2) Does the tradition of only men proposing and only women wearing engagement rings fit with the egalitarian view?

      That’s perfectly fine!

      1) Would you mind emailing me this question? I prefer to talk one-on-one about these things!

      2) You know, yes and no. Egalitarianism’s really all about leveling the playing fields and allowing each person and each couple to do what works best for *them.* Some egalitarian couples choose to both propose, or the woman proposes, or kind of “mutually agree” to get married. Many (most?) of us stick with the traditional man proposes to woman. For me, the proposal was kind of unnecessary and just for fun. I wanted to propose to Erich too, but he didn’t feel comfortable with that. It worked for us because out of the two of us, he needed more time to decide when he felt ready to officially get engaged, anyway.

      I might have thought about him wearing a ring for engagement. Looking back, that would have been a beautiful act, but also would have confused people: “What? You’re married already?!”

      Anyways, different egalitarians do things differently, per usual. Nobody’s forced to be untraditional if they don’t to. :) I think it technically fits into the egalitarian view because it emphasizes the couple’s individual choices.
