    Wow! That made me want to cry. What I’ve noticed in my daughter’s (she’s 12) school is that Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, and Transexual people are being more accepted than ever before. She told me yesterday that all of her teachers are either pregnant or gay and to her, it’s no big thing. It will take years, I know, but I do see change.

      I see a change too- and it makes me very happy- but I also know that who we are as parents and were we live plays a huge role. Things are changing, but in some places it is way to slow. I know it a lot of places for teens it’s ‘in’ to be bi-sexual. I know several gay teens who label themselves as bi because it’s a safe place to be. It wouldn’t have been when I was in high school- well in other schools I spent my teen years in the San Fransisco Bay Area and that’s a whole different world then most places lol! Anyway here’s hoping that courage and kindness keep spreading!
