A message to the mothers out there who aren’t raising your sons to have any concrete values, ettique, or sense and let them run around the grocery unsupervised

Saturday, 2 December 2006

Today a boy went after my daughter’s attention when I told him politely and repeatedly, “No, thank you.” To which the 3 year-old said, “I’m not talking to you,” and proceeded to throw his gift of a sticker into the shopping cart with my girl.

This was the first time it happened. I'm not going to share any current pictures of her but I can tell you it will not be the last. Naturally curly white girls with blue eyes garner this even when homely let alone when Her.

The message–

I’m not above making a stranger’s 3 year-old cry. I’m not above jerking a 12 year-old’s shoulder out of the socket. I’m not above donating the next 20 years of my life to the State of Washington for the simple fact that you exist in the same world as my children.
