gunslinger catechism


So there was this adorable little moppet of a girl on the bus home today, all of about two, who kept asking for hugs because apparently I look like her mother. And I told her my name and she said "Hi, Kate", and it was all very sweet.

Except the part where she also kept repeating, completely innocently, "Mummy [said] go away", "Fuck off" and "Oi, bitch". Obviously, a toddler is not going to understand what these words mean, or pull them from thin air, and her great-grandmother, sitting with her, told me she'd picked them up from her mother, who says them not only in her hearing but to her.

Some women should just have their kids taken away and never be allowed to breed again.
