Now Playing Tracks

gerrardly:

Yesterday my mom posted a picture on Facebook of my 5 year old brother Sam wearing a pair of shoes he picked out for his first day of preschool.

She explained to him in the store that they were really made for girls. Sam then told her that he didn’t care and that “ninjas can wear pink shoes too.”

Sam went to preschool and got several compliments on his new shoes. Not one kid said anything negative toward him about it.

However, my mom received about 20 comments on the photo from various family members saying how “wrong” it is and how “things like this will affect him socially” and, put most eloquently by my great aunt, “that shit will turn him gay.”

My mom then deleted the photo and told Sam that he can wear whatever he wants to preschool, that it’s his decision. If he wants to wear pink shoes, he can wear pink shoes.

Sam then explained to her that he didn’t like them because they were pink, he liked them because they were “made out of zebras” and zebras are his favorite animal :)

What does it say about society when a group of adults could stand to take a lesson in humanity from a class of preschoolers?

Words cannot express how happy this makes me.

i’ve been starring at this for an unhealthy long of a time. 

Whoever that hand belongs to, wanted to protect the driver, it looks as though. I can’t stop staring at this. You can see the front of the other car just smash in. And then you look at how it was driving and you begin to wonder how did it even crash, did it lose control? Cause it didn’t hit anything.  And you also notice that the car we are looking inside of is only going about 35 mph.
