Today, boys in my 5-year-old son's class stole his homemade rainbow backpack that they find "too feminine" to hide it in another class "where there are more girls".


Tonight, he's so sad. "I will not change my backpack or say that I don't love it because I do. I know I'm not a girl, I don't need them telling me that. But I would like them to stop mocking me. Do you think that will happen?"

I lied, and said what he needed to hear.

He can't understand how proud I am of his attitude, and how sad and angry I am at the same time. Not against those 5-year-old boys, but against their parents and society.
