My 12 year old daughter was modeling a new outfit for me.
I thought she was stunning and told her so.
“If stunning means ugly,” my 9 year old son said.
While I was trying to think of something appropriate to scream at him that would convey the importance of respecting women, getting along with his sister, not focusing on physical beauty and doing well in school (thrown in for good measure) my daughter retorted, “Whatever, I’m about 50 times more beautiful than your wife will ever be, and she’s going to be gorgeous.”
He was speechless.
