kids troubling gender: sad parrot

| No Comments
A friend of a friend made this video (sorry I don't know how to embed it) of her son, who is about four and is troubled by the pressure he feels to choose/create a gender identity. With his mom (who supports his troubling), he made this video. It is really powerful.

And ironic that my friend showed me this tonight, after our discussion on "single ladies" (which I showed her right after she showed me this video).

It also makes me wonder how many parents would be this supportive, rather than putting their son in "time out" for wearing a skirt or barrettes.
