You know you had a Catholic upbringing when somebody says “May the force be with you” and your instant reaction is to reply with “And also with you”.
Lift up your lightsabers.
We lift them up to the lord.
Let us give thanks to the Force our guide.
It is right to give the Force thanks and praise.
"They’re mourning the loss of a daughter! You were going to be a prom queen and a beautiful bride and a mom and…"
Well, how about we stop planning our kids’ entire futures based on what genitalia they’re born with? It’s so ridiculous to build a whole life in your head based on gender stereotypes. Enjoy the mystery of your child’s life, rather than writing it out and getting disappointed.
To the people shitting on this post in the notes I just want to say that one of the primary reasons I am closeted is that people keep comparing coming out to announcing a death in the family. Telling kids that their gender is a cause for mourning is not harmless or necessary, it’s toxic.
talk to kids like they’re people and take full interest in what they’re saying because they’re forming their personalities and it’s really vital that they know that their opinions are important and what they have to say deserves validation and respect. so when your three year old niece tells you that dragons don’t like cupcakes because the color blue is a spoon you better nod your head and ask her to explain more about that.
