What A Super-Person

, , , | Related Working | July 23, 2016

(My child is both a tiny geek like their parents and non-binary gender meaning they feel somewhere between male and female. We’re visiting our local comic book shop.)

Child: *to clerk* “Excuse me, I’m a boy and a girl and I wanted to know if there are any superheroes like me.”

Clerk: “Not that I know of, but why don’t you write your own?”

Child: “If I do will you put it in your shop?”

Clerk: “I would be honoured.”

(My child spent the rest of the day beaming and thinking about the superheroes they would create and their powers. Thank you, shop clerk, for simply accepting my child for who they are and encouraging them.)
