Aaawwwnnn that is sooo cuuuute!
I witnessed something last night I believe is worth sharing.
Most of you don’t know this, but one of my personas is a live-in nanny. I’ve been with this family for a long time. Such a long time that sometimes I think they are my family.
Last night, youngest kid (she is 13) and I were watching Pretty Little Liars - yes I watch PLL and regret nothing, you should watch it too! - when Emily and Maya said “I love you” to each other for the first time. While youngest kid’s reaction wasn’t a total surprise for me I couldn’t help but feel proud to hear her saying:“awwwwnnn that is sooooo cuuuute!” the same way she does when a cute straight couple gets together in any other show we watch.
This gives me hope. Hope that people one day will be able to do the same as “my” 13 year old and look at two people together and see a couple, regardless of sex or gender.
