As I walked through town recently, I was reminded rather forcefully that homophobia and bigotry still exist in a big way.
As my family and I were walking through a charity store, a man was loudly saying the following to his 3 or 4-year-old son.
Don’t tell me you kissed a boy. Stop kissing boys, it ain’t natural!
I am a parent to two girls, both of whom are open about the fact they don’t label themselves in any specific way when it comes to their preferences towards gender. Hearing this made them both upset and mad as hell – as it did me.
