So this was a middle school crush - #kriskros. RIP to Chris. Around age 10 or so, I think I really knew something different. As puberty is a phase, I think mine seemed to lasted ~10 years. But I knew what was going through my head in middle school, mayeb age 12, when these two said “Jump Jump”…and it wasn’t “oh wow their cloths are backwards”. This picture is so queer btw. Normally kid topics are off limits, but we need to be honest here: Kids know when they are queer. They may not be able to express it well because they are at the beginning of that 10 year phase of trying to grow a mustache or breasts…LOL…but they know.
This makes me think about parenting. I was lucky to have great ones. Parents should stop forcing their experience on the younglings by asking questions like “so how many girlfriends you have?” and just start asking so how was your day? how do you feel? tell me something that you wouldn’t tell your friends. Build the trust people, and everyone will start to #beout.
