"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

He's only 9. Not even a brony. Just a kid who likes a rather sweet show with a nice message of friendship and courage (Yes, I watch it with the grandkids.)

That's sad.  I bet if the boy chose to dress as and call himself a girl, they wouldn't have told him to stop doing it!

Oh, you can be sure of that.

And the administration wouldn't be blaming the kid being bullied and make him go home and take off the dress and put some pants on.

What a mixed up world we live in!

(I wonder if they make boys who carry violins or cellos to school stop bringing them, because the other boys call them nasty names??)
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

When my granddaughter was 12, she still played with Barbie Dolls, but in private. She didn't want other kids to make fun of her, as they had in the past.  I told her I bet those little girls play with them, too. When she had a sleep-over, she and a school mate played with her Barbies. There is a stigma put on kids who take their time growing up.

I watch it with my daughter sometimes (in large part 'cause I'm not allowed to have the remote any more).
