This Is Heartwarming, You Should Watch It of the Day: Cheryl Kilodavis reacted to her 5-year-old Dyson’s preference for “girl’s toys” and dressing up in “pink, sparkly” outfits by writing a children’s book called My Princess Boy, which is now being used as an anti-bullying tool in her son’s school.
KING 5 TV’s Margaret Larson recently sat down with the boy and his mom to discuss the family’s initial struggle with, and eventual acceptance of Dyson.
This is exactly how parents should act towards their children, regardless of their interests and society’s beliefs. Gold star, Dyson’s family!
I want this book.
This is literally the best thing I have ever seen in my life.
FUCK H8, YALLS!
So just what were those “inappropriate” comments? According to the Portland Mercury, Stambaugh was asked by a student whether he was married. Stambaugh, openly gay, said that he was not, adding that it would be illegal for him to be married in the state of Oregon because he “would choose to marry another guy.” Asked by the same student whether that meant that Stambaugh liked hanging out with men, Stambaugh replied “Yeah.”
They say that honesty is the best policy. But in this case, a parent in the school district caught wind of the conversation and went to school administrators telling them that if they didn’t remove Stambaugh from the classroom, the parent would remove his child.
So the school district called up Stambaugh and Lewis and Clark College, and said that these comments were “inappropriate,” and that Stambaugh would have to student teach elsewhere.
Yes, apparently in the Beaverton School District, just saying that you may want to marry someone of the same gender could get you removed from the classroom. Sound awful? Send a note to the Beaverton School District demanding that they explain the rationale for removing a student teacher on the basis of his sexual orientation.
What’s even more agitating in this instance is that the parent who complained about Stambaugh’s comment also complained about Stambaugh’s choice in clothing earlier in the semester. The parent called the school to file a complaint about Stambaugh’s outfit: pressed slacks, a button-up oxford shirt, and a cardigan, which happened to be a gift from Stambaugh’s grandfather. Apparently the outfit was too provocative for this parent, prompting a complaint. Lord knows what would have happened if the outfit would have included a tie.
Shit guys, Seth’s story is already on the internet, on international queerwatch news sources. News moves fast.
