Animals, Children, and Facts: kids, the animal world &gender This morning, my 5yo asked us if his new boy-kitten would grow up to be a daddy cat. We said that no, he wouldn't, and were about to explain that this is because the kitten is desexed when my son said, "Oh, that's right - because if you don't grow up to be a mummy or a daddy, then you're not a boy or a girl you're just a person! It turns out, he's been lowkey assuming that there are three grown-up genders: mummy, daddy, and adult, such that anyone who isn't a parent is, in some sense, nonbinary. We explained that, while he's right in thinking there are people who aren't boys or girls, your adult gender isn't determined by whether or not you have a kid, and used examples of people we know as proof. He accepted this with a nod, then went off to play with the kitten, We had a related conversation at bedtime last week, when the "story" he'd chosen was a book of facts about Australian animals. One of the entries we read was about the barramundi fish, which are all male as babies and only turn female during spawning season. This prompted him to ask if human boys could turn into girls, too, and while he was a bit too sleepy for a detailed conversation, I said something along the lines of, "yes, there are some people who look like boys when they're little, but who realise they're girls and change when they get older." He accepted that, too, and then we read another entry about a particular type of bat. These are only two small examples, but it's endlessly fascinating to me to watch how kids are trying to figure out what gender is and what it means from the world around them. There have been times when my son has come home saying that pink is for girls, because that's what he heard at school, and so we have a conversation about how colours are for everyone. The point is not only that children absorb what's going on around them and try to process it through an individual lens, but that how adults answer their questions plays a massive role in comprehension, too. Don't tell kids they're silly for asking these sorts of questions or act as if the truth is obvious: they're not, and it really isn't. But wont somebody think of the children?

But wont somebody think of the children?

A$AP Rocky, Beyonce, and Billboard: Cardi B Makes History With First Three Top 10s on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart Simultaneously @balleralert Cardi B Makes History With First Three Top 10s on Billboard's Hot R&B-Hip-Hop Songs Chart Simultaneously - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2017 is CardiB’s year, from a number one record, to a surprise engagement to several historical feats. Just months after the Bronx rapper made hip-hop history with her smash hit, “Bodak Yellow,” Billboard reports that she has done it again with two more hits. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cardi B has become the first woman to chart her first three entries on Billboard’s Hot R&B-Hip-Hop Songs chart in the top 10 simultaneously. With ‘Bodak Yellow’ still doing numbers, coasting at No. 2, Migos’ ‘Motorsport’ featuring Cardi B and NickiMinaj debuted at No. 5. Finally, G-Eazy’s ‘No Limit’ featuring Cardi B and A$AP Rocky moved from 12 to 9 on the chart, completing the rapper’s hip-hop history trifecta. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The feat also makes Cardi the first artist to do so since Fetty Wap in 2015. According to Billboard, the accomplishment lands Cardi among only five other female artists, who were able to post three simultaneous top 10s at any point in her career, which includes, Ashanti, Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, Beyoncé and Rihanna.

Community, Family, and Memes: Two Teens Plot a Columbine-similar Attack Against a High School Near Atlanta @balleralert Two Teens Plot a Columbine-similar Attack Against a High School Near Atlanta-blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Authorities are saying two teens' plans to attack a high school are similar to that of the 1999 Columbine High School mass shooting that happened in Colorado. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 17-year-olds, Alfred Dupree and Victoria McCurley are being charged with criminal attempt to commit murder for making threats against EtowahHighSchool and its staff, said Cherokee County sheriff’s Sgt. Marianne Kelley to reporters. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At a news conference Cherokee County Sheriff Frank Reynolds said, "I talked to the detective earlier and I asked him, I said ‘what would you describe this as’ and he indicated that this would have been a Columbine-type incident in his opinion." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A community leader tipped off investigators about some of Dupree's journal entries that support charges against the duo. Kelley visited Dupree's family on Monday in regards to the incident. After reading the entries, authorities were led to McCurley. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "They had detailed plans of what they wanted to do and how they wanted to carry it out," Reynolds said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It all came together once officials did a search of homes in which they found firearms, some type of powdered substance and a flammable device. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Authorities are still questioning what the motive was behind their plans but she feels mental health may be the issue. Both teens were evaluated before being arrested and charged. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was determined that the two would be denied bond after their court appearance on Thursday. Etowah High is just 30 miles from the city of Atlanta.
