Aunt: so are you seeing anyone at the moment?
Me: yeah, actually.
Aunt: awww! who is he? whats his name? what is his job?
Me: umm… a florist
Douchey cousin: a florist? ha! he’s probably gay
Me: Yeah. she is
And that’s how i came out to my entire extended family at once
Because look at these kids. Does it look like they give a fuck about race or color? nope. These kids got it right. They just simply love a character. They relate to who the person is/represents, not what they look like.
Maybe you are the one focused on race?
Look at all the fucks these kids didn’t give about race.
The thing is, while representation matters, a lot of kids don’t think about race until the idea is put into their heads.
