Parents want what’s best for their kids. They are willing to do whatever it takes for them to be happy. Often that means they are desperate to make the right decisions for their children in the face of a lot of serious hardships.
For one mom, having a five-year-old son who doesn’t conform to gender norms is something that she embraces. Lori Duron’s son C.J. is “gender creative, gender fluid, gender independent, gender variant,” she tells today.com.
Recently, her blog about her “rainbow boy” stirred a bit of an argument on Twitter. Particularly between James Woods and Neil Patrick Harris. James Woods isn’t one to keep quiet on political and social issues and this was no exception.
It all started after the boy’s mother, Lori, posted a photo of her, her husband and their son C.J., writing “My sweet, fabulous boy has never received so many compliments.”
She continued, “He’s used to getting stares and whispers when we’re out in public. He’s not used to getting the smiles, hugs, and encouragement he received at Pride.”
The family enjoyed a full, sunny day at the Orange County Pride Parade in Southern California.
