A New Support Group At My Daughter's Middle School - LGBT

Be Kind or Be Quiet. Thoughts on Being Kind on the Internet and Throwing Kindess Around Like Confetti |By Dawn Nicole


My 8th grade daughter told me about a new support group that was starting in her school.  This group was presented by the school's counselor and it is for those that support, or are, LGBT.  I am so proud of the school counselor and joyful for those that find support in this group.

What gender you love doesn't matter to me.  And it shouldn't matter to anyone.  My husband and I have brought our children up with 'Love Is Love'.  What truly does matter in a relationship:  
Synonym: humanity, generosity, charity, sympathy,compassion, tenderness.
  • No abuse - verbal/physical -
          Syonym:  ill-use, maltreat, injure, harm, hurt.

If you are in a relationship and they are kind to you and you are kind to them, that's wonderful.  If you are in a relationship and the kindness is shared and there is also no abuse, that is sublime.  

I've been asked "what if your daughter told you she was gay?" and that's how I came to my heart-felt realization that it doesn't matter what gender my daughter(s) fall in love with. What I care MOST about is that they are in a relationship with someone that is kind to them.  Someone they can trust to not hurt them physically or with words.  

For those that feel it's wrong to be Lesbian Gay Bisexual or Transgender then you have been brain washed.  "But the Bible says...!" Oh please.  The Bible says a LOT of things, many words, many sentences, many paragraphs. Pages filled with words and those looking to support their comfort level will look for a grouping of words to support their feelings.  But what does the next sentence say?  Or the next paragraph?  Or next book?

If you are personally uncomfortable with those that are LGB or T then that is all.  Be honest and just say "I'm uncomfortable".  If all you see when you meet someone, or are around someone, is who they are physically attracted to then, well, that's how your mind works.  For those that are bothered, is the gender that you are physically attracted to all there is to you?  Is that all you're about?  I hope you are more interesting then that.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting.

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic?
