It’s really not that hard is it to say, “Sometimes boys like boys and sometimes girls like girls. Now eat your fucking jello.”
My little brother watched me cry and go through a million panic attacks one night because my parents started calling me a fag for being trans
His responce: “Its a sex change? Who cares.”
He calls me his older brother, and will randomly say “Heather is a boy!” to my parents when they say she
Let me remind people that he’s fucking 9 years old
I WISH PEOPLE WOULD REALIZE HOW EASY IT IS FOR LITTLE KIDS TO UNDERSTAND HOMOSEXUALITY LIKE IF YOU LITERALLY JUST TELL THEM THAT TWO BOYS OR TWO GIRLS LOVE EACH OTHER JUST LIKE ONE BOY AND ONE GIRL LOVE EACH OTHER THEYLL BE LIKE “OKAY!” AND THATS LITERALLY THE END OF IT AND THEN THEYLL GROW UP ACCEPTING HOMOSEXUALITY AND I HATE PEOPLE FOR NOT DOING THIS
JESUS. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE BEEN THINKING IN MY CHILDREN’S LIT CLASS OH MY GOD I’M SO GLAD SOMEBODY UNDERSTANDS THIS
So Brad totally talked about this in an interview, saying that Shiloh prefers to be addressed by all the family as John (and if anyone calls ze—I guess, I’m not sure if there are chosen gender pronouns yet, so I’m just going to use ze/zir—Shiloh, ze’ll be all “it’s JOHN OKAY?”) and prefers traditionally “masculine” things like swords and boy clothes etc., and he and Angelina don’t care because they a) recognize that not all children are the same/follow traditional gender binaries and b) they love John no matter what so it doesn’t matter to them what gender ze is. Which I thought was awesome/adorable.
Love them so much.
I’m not nessesarily a big fan of Jolie, however I will say this: If my mother had done for me what she is doing for Shiloh/John it would have saved me a a childhood full of frustration, numbness and confusion. I would not now look back on 19 years worth of life and wish I had been able to LIVE IT. Instead, I spent 19 years pretending to be someone else. I can’t help but feel robbed. Why do we tell children who they are? HOW can we tell children who they are?
Parents, please, LISTEN to your kids. Embrace difference and know that you are raising your children right by allowing them to be themselves and loving them unconditionally.
Everyone who’s liked or reblogged this seriously needs to become a parent. Please, for the good of humanity — reproduce, smart people.
kids are fantastic because today i saw a four year old drop his hotdog at the busport and he threw himself on the ground and started crying and adults probably feel the same when they drop their hotdogs but for some reason they do not take the same action
kids have it figured out u kno don’t hold that hotdog grief in
While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, an officer was interrupted by a little boy about six years old. Looking up and down at his uniform, he asked, “Are you a cop?”
“Yes,” he replied and continued writing the report.
“My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?”
“Yes, that’s right,” he told him.
“Well, then,” he said as he extended his foot towards the officer, “would you please tie my shoe?”
