Today my gift was to reach out to one of the circles of parenting community I'm in and talk about monosexism. I want to be sure to hold space for our child outside labels or any expectations I might have about his orientation.

I don't really care how that person or those people identify and how they present their gender. I care about how healthy and loving their relationships will be.
I find gender, sexed bodies, community identification, sexual and romantic behavior, and identity so much more complex than binary thinking. Labels can be so limiting...
