you know how everyone talks about how you’re supposed to ‘just know’ when someone is the right person for you? well i knew from the moment i got off the plane and saw allie for the first time that she was it for me. we both did. she’s everything i didn’t even know i wanted and so much more than i deserve. (she’s gonna hate me for being so sappy) she is my love.

Being fathers is getting our daughters up at 5:30 am making breakfast getting them dressed for school and putting them on the bus by 6:30 .This is a typical day in our household . It’s not easy but we enjoy every moment and eveny minute of #fatherhood . #proudfathers#blackfathers#prouddads#gaydads
Okay I’m reblogging this again because I want to point out how beautiful this is and the sheer number of stereotypes it disproves. The stereotype that a gay couple cant be good parents. The stereotype that men know nothing about caring for girls’ hair. The stereotype that all gay men are feminine. The stereotype that black men abandon their children. The stereotype that people with a lot of tattoos aren’t caring. The stereotype that black people are too lazy to care about things like school- This picture is a beautiful thing and I love everything about it and it makes me regain confidence in the world we live in
You forgot one very important stereotype: that gay men are white.
This blows that nonsense outta the water. Right here. Right now.
I love seeing this one go by on my dash. For all the above reasons, and because it’s just so lazily domestically cute, and because, being a white woman, society basically tells me that these two are out to mug/rape me, and that’s all I need to know. IT’S SO MUCH BETTER KNOWING BETTER.
This post made me cry. It’s so beautiful in it’s ordinariness.
Don’t tell me that Gender Fluid is a lie. Don’t tell me that Gender Fluid is just a phase. Don’t tell me that Gender Fluid is childish.
I live and breath my gender fluidity. I proudly stand within the Gender Queers in support of a new, gender variant society.
Gender is the seed that has sprouted into the discriminatory, bigoted & bland society we live in. When you dig down deep into the issues surrounding the world right now it all comes back to one tiny little fuck up. The idea that biological sex somehow determines the gender roll of individuals is a lie. In fact, gender rolls is a lie. Just because I identify as gender fluid does not mean that I must uphold any societal expectation, associated with gender fluidity.
Plain and simple, I plan on having two children. I will not teach my little boy to “be a man.” I will not teach my little girl what it means to “be a woman.” Instead, i’ll teach my children to just simply be good people. Because a society full of good people makes for a better life than a society full of classified, judgmental, opinionated and shallow people.
