Candle: A Retraction

A friend of mine started posting “candles” on Facebook. Since most stories on Facebook were depressing (well except the cat stories) he wanted to add to the positive feelings. I figured I would steal this idea for here as well.

In a world today filled with violence and unacceptance of FTM, I was happy to see a great article in People magazine entitled:

Parents Write Newspaper Birth Announcement to Show Acceptance of Teen Transgender Son.

The article goes on to explain how the parents of this young man retracted the birth announcement from 20 years ago, saying they had made a mistake and had announced a girl, but in fact it was a boy.

I haven’t seen this kind of acceptance as common yet. I am hoping it is a sign of things to come. Especially since Australia isn’t known for being the most forward thinking society for LGBTA.

I realize it isn’t a deep post today, but so often what I want to talk about are the problems, while today there was an example of the good that is out there. This made me really happy to read this morning. Hopefully I can find more like this.
