What's Wrong with This Picture? Why Maria Kang Can't Tell People What to Do. - BlogHer (blog) | Herstory | Scoop.it

How can you tell women that if they just put down the pound cake and took up your prayer and exercise regime they would look like that, when you don't even look like that? I am...disappoint. And none of this is to say her photo here isn't gorgeous. The only one saying that is her, when she thanks her fans for being "understanding and supportive" of her stomach skin. She is a damn knockout, as she is. I'm sorry she doesn't see it that way.

A mom and dad respond to their gay 7-year-old

A mom and dad respond to their gay 7-year-old | Herstory | Scoop.it

by MARY ELIZABETH WILLIAMS, Salon.com

 

The tale began a few months ago, when blogger Amelia penned a column about her then 6-year-old son’s crush on Blaine from “Glee.” She noted how her husband had observed at the time, “So if at 16 he wants to make a big announcement at the dinner table, we can say ‘You told us when you were six.’”

 

They didn’t have to wait nearly that long. Just last month, Amelia, who has been steadily chronicling her family’s experiences in this new terrain, wrote a piece entitled “When Your 7-Year-Old Son Announces, ‘I’m Gay.’” In it, she reveals how her Blaine-crushing offspring, a child who just a few months earlier had no concept of the word “gay,” had casually come out to her one day, right before bounding off to play with his brothers. “Gay,” he’d said. “I’m gay.”

 

And what did mom do? She “leaned down to eye level with him and rubbed my nose against his,” and told him, “I love you so much.” [MORE]
