So, earlier while perusing my Twitter feed, I came across an interesting YouTube video of a young woman who had previously began transitioning to a man, but was now in the process of de-transitioning. The video rambles a bit but is worth a watch. Why? This young woman, I think, should never had been allowed to begin hewr transition at all.  You xan watch the vide, here.

Why Reading is Important

 

Child reading  pile of books.

This is a subject I’ve wanted to write about for years. Why I haven’t until now? Well, other topics rose to the top of my list and I have always pushed it back down thinking no one is really interested in this topic. Buy we all should.

Something I often think about, when I’m around friends with children is who these children really are. By that I mean, do these parents, my friends, shuffle their kids out in front of their friends only for show, or is there a real relationship between them? Sometimes, I’m unsure. It’s easy to parade your offspring and most people actually do this, but to what effect?
