1. Good Parenting: Exhibit 1 (overheard at work today)

    • 6-year old: Mommy, why is that man dressed like a lady?
    • Mother: That is a lady. She was just born with the wrong body.
    • 6-year old: How did that happen?
    • Mother: Nobody really knows. But she's working to fix it, and that's what's important.
    • 6-year old: Okay! *runs up to obviously self-conscious woman*
    • 6-year old: Hey! Miss!
    • Lady: ...yes?
    • 6-year old: You look really pretty in your skirt!
    • Lady: Thank you!
    • *Kid skips back to her mom, and literally everyone in the vicinity smiles*
