bless the child

What society demands of the youngest among us…it ought to be a crime.

“This week is all about C.J.  If you knew my son at home, you’d assume he’s made for weeks like this when all eyes are on him.  At home he acts as if he’s born to shine, sparkle and steal every scene in this feature film called life.  When talking about his future, he’s gotten in the habit of starting every sentence with “When I’m famous…”  At home, he’s no wallflower.  

Things are much different at school.  This year he works every day to blend in and avoid doing something that will call attention to himself and his gender nonconformity.  He’s in constant fear that the wrong classmate will find out that he likes girl stuff.”
