He's pretty listless, but he's 3, I'm sure he'll be fine.

It's his teachers (and my ex and I) that I'm worried about.

people say "gender is a spectrum" but then they think of it like a point along a gradient, or like a HSL value in a color wheel

i would like to posit that if gender is, in fact, a spectrum, then individual genders are not single points or even contiguous blobs but rather are more like this

parenting, mental health
