We were grabbing a bite of lunch at a small cafe, in a mall, right across from a booth that sold jewelry and where ears could be pierced for a fee. A mother approaches with a little girl of six or seven years old. The little girl is clearly stating that she doesn’t want her ears pierced, that’s she’s afraid of how much it will hurt, that she doesn’t like earrings much in the first place. Her protests, her clear ‘no’ is simply not heard. The mother and two other women, who work the booth, begin chatting and trying to engage the little girl in picking out a pair of earrings. She has to wear a particular kind when the piercing is first done but she could pick out a fun pair for later.

"I don’t want my ears pierced."

"I don’t want any earrings."

The three adults glance at each other conspiratorially and now the pressure really begins. She will look so nice, all the other girls she knows wear earrings, the pain isn’t bad.

She, the child, sees what’s coming and starts crying. As the adults up the volume so does she, she’s crying and emitting a low wail at the same time. “I DON’T WANT MY EARS PIERCED.”

Her mother leans down and speaks to her, quietly but strongly, the only words we could hear were ‘… embarrassing me.’

We heard, then, two small screams, when the ears were pierced.

Little children learn early and often that ‘no doesn’t mean no.’

Little children learn early that no one will stand with them, even the two old men looking horrified at the events from the cafeteria.

Little girls learn early and often that their will is not their own.

No means no, yeah, right.

Most often, for kids and others without power, ”no means force.”

from "No Means Force" at Dave Hingsburger’s blog.

This is important. It doesn’t just apply to little girls and other children, though it often begins there.

For the marginalized, our “no’s” are discounted as frivolous protests, rebelliousness, or anger issues, or we don’t know what we’re talking about, or we don’t understand what’s happening.

When “no means force” we become afraid to say no.

My dog Candy passed away the 18th. She was 13-14 years old, sick, and lovely. She used to be really energetic, but her health got worse in the last couple of months, and she was starting to lose the ability to use her legs, which meant that she was no longer able to move and fulfill her most basic needs.I met her when she was a couple of months old. A cute light brown pit bull puppy. She was so sweet, and always smiled to everyone. She loved people, attention, cuddles. She loved long walks, and bread. The first day she got home, I spent hours cuddling with her. My mom didn&#8217;t want her to be inside the house. I wish I has been older so I would have been brave enough to tell her, that as a family member she deserved to share our house. There was this one time when my dad let her get into the house and she snuggled with him. He got himself a Coke and when she heard the tsss (from gas), she got scared and growled.She was there for the longest part of my life, and I still can&#8217;t get used to the fact that she&#8217;s not here anymore. I still look for her beautiful friendly face. I feel to sorry for not spending enough time with her when she was alive, but I treasure every moment we got to spend together. Now I know, that after all her life, the sickness and the suffering of her last days, she&#8217;s in peace. That&#8217;s the only confort I can find.I&#8217;ll miss you forever Candy.

What I look forward the most about my birthday is that my grandmother may give me money that I’ll spend on tattoos.
