So let me tell you about the shittiest parent on the motherfucking planet.

I work at a grocery store and this man comes in with his 11 year old son. He buys a pack a cigarettes and a two cases of beer. The son was holding a two dollar drawing pad and placed it on the belt and I guess the dad didn’t notice it at first but when I was about to scan the pad he asked where’d it have come from and turned towards the kid and asked “Did you put that shit up there?”. He told me to put it back and then told his 11 year old child that he “ain’t paying for that gay ass notebook.”.  So I looked at the kid, who was close to tears and saying how he ran out of paper at home and my heart broke. So I gave the pad to him, for free, and told the dad I would take care of it. I gave the kid some tokens for a game outside and said I would look forward to buying some of his drawings and paintings when he’s all famous. He kids face was so priceless and I thought everything was good. But then, about 10 ten minutes after giving the kid his notebook, I walked outside and saw this. The drawing pad all ripped up and tossed on the pavement. I could only imagine what happened in the parking lot, but I know that that poor kid heart is fucking ripped apart, just like this pad.

I’m fucking horrified that there are parents like this, who, just because it’s not masculine or gender specificthey won’t let their children follow their true passions or explore interests that lead to their happiness. Even more so, I’m horrified that parents don’t care about the fine arts anymore because it doesn’t have job security. Since when did it ever matter to a child if their passion makes them money or not? Parenting is about supporting whatever makes your child happy. Have some fucking consideration for your child’s wants not your homophobic and anti-art ideals. 

Everybody needs to see this

What I have to say doesn’t meet the means the story above has but I know this problem all too well. Both of my nephews are put through this. They have been playing football since they were five and now both are currently in baseball. My brother-in-law enforces they practice at all times, even when playing with friends, in addition to their teams’ practices and scheduled practices he signed them up for at sports centers else they’re not going to amount to anything. The younger has shown complete disinterest in baseball, wanting piano lessons instead, only to be ignored and called a “moron” by his own father. Let me repeat and clarify: my brother-in-law called his son a moron because he doesn’t want to play baseball. This is all on top of enforcing that both boys work out before school every morning else they’re going to be picked on for being small, that they’ll be called girls for liking a stuffed animal or focusing on painting or drawing.

My nephews are eight and ten, and their father has been teaching them for years that the world will make fun of them for not being jocks, for not being his ideal of boys. I can tell you that his relationship with them is faltering and you can see it when both kids only go to mom and avoid dad when he’s home. They’re going to hate them because he didn’t support their true interests which are apparently not masculine enough for him.
