Heterosexual Pride Day

milkboys News 16 Comments

Some people always find a reason to hate and envy you. Even when it’s just because you get one day a year to celebrate yourself, your culture and the overcoming of many struggles. Even when people in your community, to this very day, are at risk of getting bullied into suicide, murdered, thrown into prison because of who they love. Hell, even if they can celebrate every other day of the year as theirs.

It’s not a new sentiment either, the black community for example had to listen to nonsense like “All Lives Matter” in response to their “Black Lives Matter” movement; so it wasn’t much of a surprise when #HetereosexualPrideDay started trending on social media earlier this month. Luckily sane voices were quick to respond…

Tomgirl

“Gender” is a hot topic that never fails to spark heated discussions whenever it comes up. Many people have strong opinions about it and some even believe that the course of our society depends on simple things like choosing the “right” restroom in a McDonalds.

For a long time we brought up our children with strict guidelines in our heads about which toys are appropriate, which colour their clothes must have and which emotions they are allowed to express. All based on the genitals they were born with. Trucks, blue, anger. Dolls, pink, sensitivity.

But in recent years some started to question this system and proposed the idea that children might develop healthier attitudes towards themselves and others if we don’t put these restraints in place, if we allow them to form their own character, personality and preferences without arbitrary rules.

The documentary Tomgirl explores the life of Jake, a gender non-conforming kid that chose to ignore these rules.
