Holy shit, you guys! Did anyone else see this story on HuffPo today? Fucking jeez louise. I don't know what I would have done if this were my child. I seriously might have went apeshit.
This makes me think of something that happened to a good friend of mine lately. She was at the mall with her 18 month old, who has slightly longish curly hair. An older woman that she did not know walked up to her son and ran her hands through his hair. She turned to my friend and said, "Oh, honey. You need to get his hair cut. He's a little boy; you're going to confuse him."
She told me this story a couple days after the fact and my eyes bulged out of my head, and I said, "You have to be fucking kidding me, right?" She said, "Yeah, I know it was rude, but it caught me so off guard I didn't know what to say. I was mostly pissed that she was touching my kid, and I just wanted to get him away from her."
First, don't be a homophobe. That's ridiculous. Second, DON'T FUCKING TOUCH SOMEONE ELSE'S CHILD OR TELL THEM HOW TO PARENT! Jesus.
