Did He Just Say What I Think He Said? (via Twinfamy)

Perusing the Blogesphere once again, and came across this hilarious blog about what else?…. Twins. A stay at home Dad recounts his experiences in raising his little people. Read this post and literally laugh out loud.. Do people really do that?

Did He Just Say What I Think He Said? There is a moment that every Daddy waits for. Typically (or stereotypically, if you'd prefer), Mommy is the all-star. The intensity of the mother-spawn connection is undeniable.

Last night I watched Transgendered Kids on the Style Network. The Mother of a 16 year old transgendered um.. boy was just hit on by her “son’s” male mentor… who happens to have been born a woman.
Wow.
I’m so torn as to what my approach would be if my own son or daughter felt that they had been born in the “wrong body”. On one hand I know that my children’s happiness is at the forefront of my mind. I wouldn’t want them to be one of those people who chooses to take their own life because they’re just that miserable… But on the other hand I would have the obvious concerns of my child being pray to ridicule, hatred, and retaliation. The consensus was that most children diagnosed with what they called Gender Dismorphic Disorder would eventually just.. grow out of it. So what do you do? Support your child and praise them for being true to themselves and who they believe themselves to be? Or protect your child from society – possibly saving them from ridicule, pain, and falling victim to a potentially fatal hate crime? I honestly can’t say. Watch the clip below.
