An automatic Twitter bot called @she_not_he is scrubbing Twitter, looking for anyone who uses the “he” pronoun in conjunction with Caitlyn Jenner’s name, then giving them a friendly course correction. And it’s actually making a difference.
Meet my little brother Jamie, he’s 8 years old and loves to wear dresses. Tonight was the first night I’ve ever put makeup on him. This is the happiest I’ve ever seen him. His dad (my stepdad) doesn’t allow him to wear clothes like this, even if he’s just playing in the house. He says that dresses are made for girls and gay men. But my sister and I strongly disagree. Wearing dresses doesn’t mean Jamie is gay, it means that he likes wearing dresses. I want my brother to grow up knowing that it’s okay to dress however you want. The only thing I want is for my brother to be happy, like he was tonight, for the rest of his life. I just want him to be able to be himself 24/7.

One in three LGBT kids will go through some form of “conversion therapy” in their lifetime.

If you own a particularly fluffy puppy, now would be a good time to call them over in preparation for emergency snuggles.
