Somewhere along the way that changed. I can hear my kids talk about "black" kids or whether someone is gay or not. It's pretty upsetting actually, especially since that is not the way that I talk around them. I stress to them all the time that it doesn't matter how someone looks or whether they are gay or straight. What matters is what type of person someone is. Are they someone that they would like to be friends with?
Everyone is different, and that is what makes everyone and everything AWESOME.
