Children at Risk – Treat the Kids Right

Posted by Irresponsibility

I Blame The Patriarchy choragus Twisty says quite simply and beautifully in her Invasion of the Babyists post what I was trying to express in my earlier post on children at risk:

For crying out loud, if a kid is what gets ejected, by all means set it free. Don’t shake it or hit it or send it to bed without its supper. Don’t imprison it in a nuclear family or in some bleak concentration camp of a school. Don’t tell it to lose weight or how pretty it looks in makeup. Don’t abuse it with patriarchal myths about appeasing imaginary dude-centric celestial concierges. Don’t force it to marry some asshole in exchange for money. Don’t throw it out on the streets if it’s gay. Don’t expect a goddam thing.
