I’ve been forced to explain homophobia to my kids (aged 3 and 4) because their Aunt is homophobic. This incredibly difficult and traumatic experience went as follows:
Child: Why does aunt Rachel hate uncle Pete and Jeremy?
Me: Because they’re in love, and Aunt Rachel is a sad, ignorant women, who wants everyone to be as unhappy as she is.
Child: Oh. She’s as dumb as a biscuit!
