…and that’s why this article moved me to tears.  I love this heartfelt defense of a child’s right to be who he is–whatever he is.  I love the way this Mama-bear’s claws that come out to protect and honor her son:


Keep it away from all our kids. It’s my responsibility as a mother, as a human being, to stand up and say “No more.” No, you are not allowed to say those things in front of my children, not unless you want to deal with me. Because I will not allow any of my sons to be viciously attacked without seeing me defend them. They will never have to doubt for a second exactly where their parents stand, and never have to live in fear of who they are.
