Exception to the Rule

I see your shifting gaze, that disgusted glance. I know you’re questioning my parenting from across the elementary school assembly.

Let me tell you a little story about the kindergarten student with bright purple hair, my little Raven Marie…

A month before school started she decided to play hair stylist with the craft scissors, and to save what was left I had to opt for a pixie cut. She was absolutely devastated. It was about three hours before she stopped her harsh sobbing and hiccups.

Why?

She has thought that the length of a girls hair was what made her “girly”. I know I’ve personally had many hairstyles around her before, including a purple mohawk, which many people criticized as not being “girly” enough. Media, other children, other parents, and society made it worse. She would randomly burst in tears while out in public for the first week of her new style, screaming that she looked like a boy. That everyone would think she’s a boy.

At one point she took off her bow in her hair, threw it at a cashier and screamed, “I DON’T NEED THIS BOW TO TELL YOU THAT I’M NOT A BOY, BECAUSE I’M NOT”

Proudly stomping away in her blue jean overalls, head held high.

Once we edged closer to the first day of school she kept asking questions like, “Do you think the other kids will like me? Do you think they’ll be my friend? Will they think I’m a boy? Will they pick on me because I have boy hair?”

So I went to the grocery store, bought some dye, and spent the whole night transforming my bright blonde little girl into a plum punk rock fairy. I then assured her that if any of the kids didn’t like her, they were just jealous.

As for you, mothers and teachers with the wandering eyes filled with disgust and judgement, I’m in the business of raising a free spirit.

Here’s to you, Raven Marie. I love you.

i can’t believe i had to read this with my own two eyes

It’s very true though. I am a Republican myself. And you are almost looked down upon for being a Republican by the democrats. Now I’m not saying that coming out is the say exact thing as being a Republican because it’s not. You change your whole life style when you come out. But you almost get the same ridicule being a Republican as you do coming out. You get judged you get made fun of you have to deal with the jokes because some people don’t agree with your life. Don’t ever think that what I’m saying is that guys and Republicans are on the same boat because honey we’re not. But quit making fun of Republicans because we don’t have the same views as you democrats. And don’t make fun of gays because you don’t agree with their life style. Don’t make fun of anybody for their views and life styles. Ok thank you.

if somebody thinks stating their political party is the same as me telling somebody I am gay…………I would like u to imagine some things: receiving nasty looks from girls in the locker room almost every day; having your cousin tell you she can’t even hug you because she’s afraid you will try molest her; having boys say they can turn you /HAVING GROWN MEN TELL YOU THEY COULD CHANGE YOUR MIND/; having not one but TWO teachers tell you that you made that decision in front of the /entire class while everybody laughs/.
I do not give a shit about the judgmental glares you will receive for stating your political position. nothing you will face in your life could ever compare to the horrible and disgusting treatment of my community. your political party is one of our worst enemies. until things take a turn for the better, I will spew as much hate as I want towards the republicans.

men love “fat asses” and big titties but act like those things commonly exist naturally on thin women and they “don’t count” when accompanied by a jiggly belly and thick thighs
lol ok

and women love “nice guys” when accompanied by a six pack. Women are biologically WAY more shallow than men.

Lololololol omg

"BIOLOGICALLY" hahahhahaahaha
