It seems to me there are way too many people worrying about
their kid "catching the gay". Let me tell you this.
You can't catch it. You don't get to choose who you love.
It's just who you are. I'm going to love all of my kids no matter who they end up loving.
Reuben has very nice fingernails,
I don't know why, but they grow and don't break
and they look nice. He was pretty keen to paint them
so I brought him some black and some sparkly nail polish.
Why did I buy him nail polish?
Because he wanted to paint his nails and we thought black was a good colour.
This morning I painted his nails for him.
They look awesome.
Now I know that some of you are judging me right about now.
But let me just tell you something,
painting his nails will not make him gay.
Painting his nails does not make him any less manly than he already is.
Painting his nails does not take anything away from his manliness,
it just adds to his quirkiness.
He's learning to choose clothes that look good,
to have a shower and wear deodorant.
And if he wants to wear nail polish, I don't care.
All I care about is that all of my kids feel loved
just for being who they are.
Isn't that the whole point??
