    I do think m/m has opened my eyes to a lot of things in a way that no other genre has. Thanks so much for Britt’s story, too!

    Your post really resonated with me. Thank you!

    I love this line: “…as far as my seven year old is concerned seeing two men or two women kiss is equally as gross as seeing a man and a woman kiss.” Mine is the same way. 🙂

    We have also taken to being gender neutral when referring to our kids potential, future love interests. It’s pretty difficult to counteract what they hear from all the other people around them, but we try.

    And thank you for Britt’s story. I so admire parents who take great risks and efforts to allow their children to be themselves.

    Loved the post. I agree that sometimes it takes something as simple as reading a novel to open our eyes to injustice that still exists. Thanks for participating in the hop.

    Great post. I always believed reading material, novels, articles, etc help to show different perspectives from the one I may perceive on my own.

    Thank you for the great post. I think we do learn a lot from reading. I’ve been trying very hard to stay gender neutral with my young child.

    Thank you for Brit’s story as well. It’s wonderful to see parents take a stand and help their children.

    Thanks for this post and for taking part in such an important blog hop. Altough things are changing we definitely aren’t there yet. We have to keep talking, educating an spreading the word and let’s hope that in the near future this blog hop isn’t necessary anymore.

    Thanks for the post.
    I recently received a pm from my best friends sister regarding my “family” friendly posts. It took me a moment to realize what she was asking. It struck me odd that she was asking as she has been married to her wife for 8 years, but has been with her for 19 years.

    I’ve seen this button for 2 years and it still means “equality for all” to me
    everybody has the right to be who they are and love whom they want
