THIS IS FUCKING FANTASTIC.
you are not the one that is supposed to know your child’s gender. if they come out to you they’ve probably spent a lot of time figuring out what is wrong with them and spent a lot of time overthinking and it took them a lot of courage to come out. comments like “no you’re just confused, you don’t know what’s best for you” ARE NOT HELPFUL.
Dead Poets Society [1989 dir. peter weir]
"We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, "O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?”
