parallels: you're doing it right

Went to my friend’s house over the weekend (who are, by the way, very, very open-minded folks and support everything), and their 5-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son was staring at my laptop with me when I came across Stony on Tumblr. I made sure to avoid any NSFW pics (which is surprising, lols), but several pictures of them hugging and kissing came up. Naturally, I assumed all younger boys would be grossed out by that. In stead, the boy just said, “I didn’t really see Captain America and Iron Man like each other that much, but maybe I was wrong.”

Kind of shocked that he didn’t get grossed out, look away, or say something homophobic, I replied, “So you don’t see anything wrong with that?” And he’s all, “I don’t see the chemistry, but if a bunch of other people like them together, maybe they do love each other.” Then the little girl was all, “I think they’re cute!”

Parenting: you’re doing it right. It makes me proud to live in a generation where children like this exist. That boy didn’t find nothing wrong with the fact that Tony and Steve are two men, he just simply didn’t “see the chemistry”. And the little girl even thought it was cute (then again, she ships everything, even me and her older sister, lol). And by the way, their parents do believe in God, but they also believe that love is love.

I just felt like sharing that, it made me happy.

A Dept store Sweden introduced these normal-size mannequins. Instead of size 00, these gals are a size 12 and 16. Some are saying they “condone obesity.” The average woman is a size 14, that’s not supporting obesity. Standard mannequins support eating disorders.
I think mannequins should look like this in every store. They don’t even have that standard creepy mannequin vibe.
