I met the most wonderful dad on a playground outside of Ithaca this afternoon. After I pointed out my wife and kids, he began to talk about his three year old who loves My Little Pony more than anything and is willing to trade in the long expired pacifier for a giant Snow White. This big, macho sports writer said he loves his son just the way he is. He continued to share how earlier in the day, “Jack” asked to wear his Wonder Woman outfit to the dump, his dad said, “of course” and away they went. I shared a bit about the transgender youth in our elementary schools in Ithaca and this dad said,”this here seems like a good community, I don’t see it how it could problem here either”. .. It won’t be, because that kid… has that dad.
