If you want to obliterate gender stereotypes, fine. But you don’t accomplish that by obliterating gender itself.
Sasha’s parents are not raising him to find his own identity; they’re raising him to be as open as possible to any and all identities. My prediction is that Sasha will not find himself; he will lose himself in all the options. And his parents, having already made their grand statement, will likely slip away and leave him to pick up the pieces. Because nobody survives childhood or parenthood in one piece.
Side note: this video is a perfect example of the fact that all parents “brainwash” their children; not just religious ones.

I tried to write a stream of consciousness, but my words are stuck in my gut.

You hear about leaders falling, and your heart goes out to them. And you say a lot of words about grace and faulty pedestals. But it’s so much harder to be Christ to those leaders when you are the one betrayed.
So, I suppose, I am humbled once again.
I trusted her.
