Ok, seriously, does that mean you don’t want your kids to ever attend a school function where, heaven forbid, there are family dynamics that don’t conform to the “norm”? Or maybe shelter them from ever going grocery shopping, or to the mall, or to a restaurant, or to the local park to play on that awesome twisty slide they can’t get enough of? Just so that YOU don’t have to explain why those two men are holding hands. Or why that child is calling one woman Mommy and the other Mama? How about you just make them sit in their rooms, sheltered from reality, until they are 18 and can go forth into the world on their own when they are able to make intelligent informed decisions based on never having seen a single iota of what real life is. Either they are gonna come to the conclusion that my parents are bigoted assholes and I want nothing to do with them, or they are going to be a bigoted asshole themselves. Why don’t we all just teach our children that this great big world of ours in made up of humans. Some are tall, some short. Some are light completed, others darker. Some are adventurous, some are timid. But each are the same on the inside. And that’s all that really matters, isn’t it? Ok, my highly out of the norm rant is thus concluded.
