This is my Aunt Jess and her two babies, Dommie and Coley.
Aunt Jess lets her boys decide who they want to be and what they like. As a result, it’s okay that Dommie’s favorite color is purple/pink, even his binkies have to follow suit!
And when the State Fair ran out of pink sunglasses, Dommie reluctantly settled for pink flowers
And, instead of making a mockery of Dommie’s preferences, Aunt Jess didn’t even bat an eye at her son’s non-normative color preferences.
And, it’s even okay for Dommie to like purple AND wear necklaces!
Dommie is also allowed to choose his own toys.
And he gets to choose how to dress and how to keep his hair!
And Aunt Jess lets Dommie indulge any activity/hobby he is interested in, even the more effeminate ones such as…
1) Creating masterpieces
2) Playing masterpieces
But, this isn’t Aunt Jessica’s way of “having the girl she wasn’t blessed with,” because she allows Dommie to engage in more typically male activities, such as:
1) Hunting (not gathering)
2) Surviving in the wilderness
3) Showing his masculinity/toughness at billard halls
4) Exploring/Conquering nature
5) Playing an instrument that is a panty dropper
6) Playing a video game where you play a panty-dropping instrument
7) Keeping the order/peace
8) Saving Lives
9) Risking his life in extreme sports
10) Risking his life in combat with his brother
11) Being an athlete
12) And, of course, driving (and not stopping for directions)
So, it should be no surprise that, when Dommie asked to be a “purple sparkly princess” for Halloween, my Aunt obliged. And it should also be no surprise that she lets him love Justin Bieber. When people criticized Aunt Jessica for “letting” Dommie be a princess, she responded with the simplest fuck you in the world: “He wanted to be a princess. Why wouldn’t I let him? Don’t you want your children to be happy?” Essentially, she responded to hate with this:
And as for everyone worried my aunt’s “immoral” parenting will ruin Dommie, well…
I’d say he’s doing pretty fucking well.
