I’m going to miss all my kids demanding to be princesses so they can fight the dragon. ’Cause princesses have magic powers see? Much better than being boring old knights.

(thank you Disney for Frozen, thank you so, so much)

Alas, next time we will being doing the enchanted forest, and I will introduce them to the joys of being fairies with wings and magic, and they will team up with the good witch to save the unicorn from the giant.

I am having so much fun with my 3-5 year olds it isn’t even funny.

So we were given the biggest load of patriarchal crap for our topic this month. Fairy tales is all well and good but when the pictures are just straight up ‘princess screams and needs to be rescued, knight fights dragon’, you know it isn’t going to wash with the Frozen generation.

(Thank you Disney for Queen Elsa. Thank you so much.)

So I’ve been giving my kids a choice. They can fight the dragon (Great Wyrm Red, aka me) as a knight with a sword (lv 20 paladin with sword of dragon slaying) or as a princess (wizard level 20 with ice meteor swarm). 

I’m getting a very satisfyingly gender mixed group choosing to be princesses so they can blast me with loud whooshing sounds. The dragon is doing a lot of screaming to help drill that vocabulary word.

Guys? Particularly peeps in the UK and America? Your countries are getting… bad. Like, really really bad. As in unsafe. I know you want to stay and fight it out but it’s going to get worse before it can get better and… look-

If you have a degree and were educated in English speaking country or institution- that is literally all you need to be an EFL teacher. You can go anywhere you want and there are a LOT of better countries out there. The pay is pretty good too.

Many schools will forward your pay and may even compensate you for airfare. I have some connections here in Hong Kong.

Just… think about it.
