According to the extremist animal rights group PETA, 4-H - one of the largest youth organizations in the world - kinda sucks. Among other claims they've publicly made against the green clover, according to them being a member hardens kids hearts. As a 12 year 4-H alumni myself I'm here to say; they're totally right.

4-H just sucks man. It turned my heart to stone, I definitely never cried when I sold my market animals every year. (Especially not when I was 19 and did it for the last time, talk about how embarrassing that would be with my rock hard exterior.) So here you go PETA, let me help you out, here are a few more reasons your kids should never join 4-H.

1. They might learn how to be responsible or something.

The thought of responsible youth just makes me wanna cringe. This is the millennial generation, everyone's supposed to be lazy and entitled right? Come on now folks, we have a reputation to uphold.

2. Even worse, they might gain self-confidence.

Puke. Vomit. No, no, no. No child of mine needs self-confidence, no sir.

3. If you make them show livestock, you're basically making them hate animals.

Kids who show livestock totally don't baby their animals or anything. Show cattle aren't treated like giant puppy dogs and we never make sure to feed them before we eat first. And like I said, no one's ever sad to part way with their project or anything.

4. You're actually desensitizing them.

4-Hers are void of all feeling and emotion, that's a fact. They definitely don't want to play a part in helping feed the world. And they'd never ever be caught dead aiding others, volunteering or doing community service. (We obviously weren't crying, no tears allowed.)

5. It's all business all the time, never ever any fun.

Wanna see your kids never laugh or smile or do anything they genuinely like? Make them join 4-H. All work and no play baby. (Sorry guys, just had to show off this picture of you in dresses just to make campers laugh at a statewide Leadership Camp for proof.)

6. They'll make zero friends.

None, nada, not one. It's too competitive, there's no time for friendship.

7. Solid, real-world connections? They won't make them here.

4-H isn't respected by future employers and has no noteworthy alumni so it can't help you at all later on in life. And no one's ever met or gained anyone that they can use for references or even possibly work for one day.

8. Basically, they'll gain zero life skills.

The ability to speak in public? Who needs it. Being able to work well with others? Not gonna happen here.

9. Honestly, it's just lame.

Being a 4-H member has clearly had no positive impact on my life. I mean, it's definitely not the reason myself or my friends are hardworking, dedicated, confident, well spoken, experienced or compassionate.

Long story short, just don't let your kids sign up for 4-H.

I Am My Own 'Sugar Daddy' And That's The Ultimate BDE

Like, get this: I am an independent woman who can afford to spoil herself.

45
views

My best gal pal was telling me all about the new job she just scored. The location was pretty, but the pay was even prettier for it to be just part-time. We geeked out over it together because she really did deserve it.

"Wait," my eyes got so big when the realization hit me. "You are your own sugar daddy!"

Just months before, when I supported her in denouncing the male population, I came up with an accurate life motto for her: "I am my own mans." And, it became our go-to line whenever she would have to deal with another annoying member of that species. We hyped each other up because who needs boys? (Yes, I have a boyfriend. Yes, I still hate boys. We exist.)

I was joking about needing a sugar daddy to provide some financial assistance (being a broke college student is not the life that I dreamed of for myself). She laughed before calling me out on my not-so-healthy spending habits but still managing to praise for spoiling myself, "You bought a coat in two different colors and reload your Starbs card without giving it a second thought."

First of all, yes, she was 100 percent right! But, guess what? I love giving myself what I know I deserve.

I love treating myself to Starbs on the daily. I love having extra money to buy what my heart desires. I love knowing that I work hard for my money. I love being an independent woman.

The feeling of having the means to provide for yourself is so satisfying. You do not need to worry about being a burden; you will not be relying on someone else. It totally okay to accept help if needed, but, when you know you can do things for yourself, it just gives you the best high.

Being an independent college girl is underrated when it should be a big deal. Girls do not get enough credit for all the hard work that they do.

When my friend made me realize that I do not need someone else for monetary support, I felt a sense of pride in myself. My new life motto is I am my own sugar daddy.

I grind for the bread. I put time and effort into what I do. I enjoy doing what I do. I am thankful for the opportunities that I have been given. I would not be able to afford to treat myself otherwise.

Remembering how spoiled I used to be that some people did not think I would be capable of ever standing on my own, I laugh at the thought of it now. I did not think I would end up here either, but here I am!

And, I am so proud of me.
