I heard a man, a father, on a YouTube kids video, tell him son….. Not to pick a certain toy because that particular toy “was for girls”.
That got me thinking. This black man is telling his boy he can’t have a toy that girls “typically” use for play.
Some white mom tells her daughter to keep her purse close because criminals are often black males? How are these two scenarios different?
This is how we teach sexism, descrimination, and division to our children. This is how we pass down segregation to our future… And the hate continues.
An individual is going to be different from BOTH parents. This individual has a God-Given RIGHT to choose for him/herself. Along the way: individuals, adults, media, many different stimuli, will try and influence.
Of all that’s influential, why the fuck (excuse my French but this has me boiling) would a parent choose to limit his /her child’s growth, identity, social inclusion, diverse acceptance, and enriched future by disallowed a toy a girl usually has. Why would a parent choose to be a negative influence.
To all of you bitching “it’s just one toy” or “It’s not that serious”…
You’re apart of the problem. It takes one lesson to learn bullshit nonsense. It takes one instance for hate to be planted into a child….
Don’t be ” that ” Dad….

Sharing my experience with generalised anxiety disorder and the happiness I found through accepting and embracing my mental health.
This blog is to encourage others that is being victimize, been a victm, or were a victim that they no longer have to live in hidden. I want to share words of encouragement to them and let them know they can come out of their situtaion alive no matter what there abuser is telling or has told them over the years. Some individuals have left their abuser but they are still living in afraid or living in in jail mental; the victim have to get his or her life back. Living behind the wall in public isn't well for them. They have to make a stand for themselves and regain what they lost in that relationship. It will not happen within a week or probably a month. First of all its a learning process, admit to what they lost, and let go of the shame, pride, and bitter. Its up to the victim to want to be a Survior not the abuser.
