SO LONG, FAREWELL, AUF WEIDERSENG GOOD BYE.
LOOK DOWN, LOOK DOWN, YOU’RE HERE UNTIL YOU DIE.
I don’t know if this counts as better or worse.
Licia Ronzulli, member of the European Parliament, has been taking her daughter Vittoria to the Parliament sessions for two years now.
Just dare say once again that women are weak!
im gonna be that kind of mum.
The children will be future leaders.
This chick takes her kid to work.
WOW. SO STRONG. MUCH RESPECT. VERY POWER.
It’s not like parliament is a place for children you know. I bet that kid has been disruptive more than once, and that people have been chapped about it. Does everyone else get to take their kids? Should that just be written in there, that if you have kids, feel free to bring them to work whenever the fuck you want?
While I agree that a governmental job should provide child-care, this kind of behavior is not okay. And it certainly doesn’t prove anything about this woman’s “strength”. Like should she get a fucking gold medal for this or something?
No. She just brought her fucking spawn to work.
That’s it. Proves nothing.
I see it differently.
Assuming the kids didn’t make too much a disruption. I think the children being there is a good thing for them, and the people there as the politicians must also factor them into their decision making.
I’ve seen people in these situations more distracted by solitaire on their laptops. The kids are fine. (usually.)
The workplace is not there for children. You’re there to work. Not to play part time parent. She has a job to do. The other people in the room have a job to do. You think that one kid is going to sway their decision making process?
We all have distractions. The difference between solitaire and a fucking kid is that solitaire doesn’t start screaming and wanting to run around the FUCKING HOUSE OF PARLIAMENT!
But the real point of this is:
This woman is labelled strong because she brought her kid to work. How is that in any way a strong decision. It’s disrespectful to the people around you—though, I hardly think that she brought the kid without permission—and it’s rude. The workplace isn’t a place for kids. Build a fucking day care for the fuckers if it means so much to you to have your kids in the same fucking building as you, but don’t bring them to your meetings, to your offices, and not to the fucking house of parliament!
I just like how the kid looks progressively more and more bored as she gets older.
Probably because she’s a child…
Soo… I couldn’t help it and had to do some research. I’ve seen this photoset pop up more than once on my dash, and it’s always caught my attention. Mostly for the cute. I’m a sucker for kids. But, in light of the discourse that came with it this time around, here’s what I found out about the situation:
- Both Licia Ronzulli and her husband are members of the European parliament, so both usually have to work at the same time.
- In an interview (granted, I read an English translation but I think the ideas translated well), Ronzulli stated that the original decision to bring her child was “maternal not political” because she was still breastfeeding.
-There are, apparently, no rules against any member of the European parliament bringing children to work as long as they do not disrupt the proceedings. So she is not doing anything radical. Nor was she the first person to do so - Danish MEP Hanne Dahl and German MEP Hiltrud Breyer have been known to do the same.
-Ronzulli DOES NOT bring Vittoria with her every single day. From what information I could gather, it was a much more common occurrence while she was breastfeeding. And one article, though it was only in passing, mentioned that Vittoria has also attended work with her father. Here’s a direct quote (as direct as an English translation can be): "It’s an official meeting, it’s not a creche. You can’t have everybody coming in with children who might cry or who might want to play … I’ll come when it’s possible. If I can bring her, I will. If it’s not appropriate, then I won’t."
-Ronzulli has made a point of saying that returning to work so soon after childbirth, with child in tow, has been a personal choice made possible by her workplace, but that it is not necessarily the right choice for everyone.
So there’s all that. Personally, having spent the last 4 months interning in an office environment where we are welcome to bring our children to work, and having had one coworker bring their kid to work every Friday due to a daycare coverage issue, I don’t think it’s a problem. The mom was super aware of when the kid might become disruptive, and I never found it a problem. But I am a sucker for kids, so maybe I’m biased.
Thanks for doing all this research, it’s really helpful. I still don’t think that you should just be able to bring kids to work, and I’m a little pissed that she could just claim, “breastfeeding” as a reason—there are breast pumps out there—but it’s nice to know that this right is extended to every MP. Still, the workplace isn’t a place for children. My opinion on that hasn’t changed.
Wow it’s great that someone actually did research instead of just getting mad about shit that literally doesn’t even concern them.
Oh shut your mouth, it’s not like you did the fucking research. Like honestly.
Plus, the research doesn’t negate my previous point, and the whole issue of my being upset. Bringing your kid to work doesn’t make you “a strong woman”.
As a tax payer, who lives in Omaha, this is highly offensive. Leave it to tumbler to propagate 9001% wrong information. I cannot believe shit like this gets posted about my anything let alone my home town. How dare you.
I dare because people deserve to know the truth! The Republican Party has always wanted Omaha out of the states and for good reason:
- Omaha was so filled with Nazis in the 40s that we had to invade Omaha Beach.
- Omaha didn’t really invent Omaha Hold ‘Em, it was invented in Texas but the name Texas Hold ‘Em was already taken. By Blackjack.
- Omaha is named after Nicolas Omaha, inventor of AIDS.
- Omaha houses Enron, Haliburton and Blackwater. The Republicans actually like that one but still it’s awful.
- Omaha has a population of 3,000,000 people, all of them complainers.
- It says in the Bible (John 1:45) that nothing good can come from Omaha.
- The soil in Omaha is 76% styrofoam, and if not for the styrofoam mines Omaha would have no income at all.
- Twilight was written in and about Omaha.
- Omaha is French for a sexual act in which a toy car is encased in a condom and inserted into the anus.
- Omaha is the only city in North and South America with absolutely no showers whatsoever.
Now I myself am not a Republican, but of all their disturbing and sinister goals such as the eradication of minorities, torture of the poor and prohibition of kittens, I think the banishment of Nebraska is the single worthy cause of the party and I support that fully.
Your move, weepy wolf person.
i find this to be unbelievably stupid. omaha,ne was founded in 1854. aids wasn’t first reported until the early 1980’s. omaha does in fact have showers. so don’t put shit on tumblr if it’s just stupid bullshit.
Modern AIDS wasn’t reported until the 1980s, but Omaha AIDS is much older. It’s like the modern AIDS virus but it has four Chemokine Receptors of which it can use two and only two. This often confuses new patients as they try to use all four receptors, or think they can use just one receptor to form a straight or flush.
As for the allegation that Omaha has showers, take a look at this photographic evidence:
Do you see any showers? No? Well that’s Omaha so clearly Omaha doesn’t have any showers. Q.E.D.
Left boot is a woman’s. Right boot is a man’s. I can’t tell you how infuriating this is. Boots for me cost more and aren’t even functional. It’s probably because women glide and don’t need to worry about gravity, ice, and walking. Right?
seriously? it’s one boot. one fuckin boot. not all boots are the same; try walking down the aisle and looking at a different pair of fuckin boots. i guarantee you’ll find a pair with more traction.
jesus i hope this post is a joke
