Just Thoughts on Education.

Share on Twitter:

Working in a school makes me seriously worry about having children of my own. Mostly the gender and racial roles/stereotypes that are perpetuated here, and the blind patriotism, and the lies (including events in history), and the ignorance... I don't want that for my kids.

And while I'm here, all I can think about is how I'm going to have to find a special school... And then I worry that their other parent would object to this, or think I'm overreacting. I want my kids to have better than I had. Isn't that what every parent wants? And when you're a QPoC and someone who advocates for these kinds of things to change, these are things that matter more than most people may realize.
