Any parent not willing to teach their child about LGBTQ+ relationships is perpetuating the idea that these relationships arenโ€™t normal or worse yet, that they donโ€™t exist at all. They do exist. They are completely normal. And your child will learn about them eventually. Grow up.

I've watched half of After Life on Netflix and as much as I enjoy it I cant watch the end atm bc the references to suicide and mental health are just waaaay to intense for me. Heed this warning chaps!

I just had a panic attack while having my T shot...0/10 would not recommend!! Chest pain, uncontrollable coughing and shortness of breath is not fun!!
