psyching myself out

SHIT I CAN'T MAKE UP: Convo between my 7year-old students today

  • (Names have been altered slightly, just in case.)
  • Josie:I have a new crusshhhhh
  • Matt:Me too! On a boy!
  • Pearl:You're a boy with a crush on a boy?
  • Matt:Yeah he's really cute.
  • Pearl:Oh.
  • (pause for a bit)
  • Matt:Boys can like boys. I just can't marry him because boys can't marry boys.
  • Me:Yeah they can. You can marry whoever you want.
  • Matt:Really?
  • Josie:YEAH my tia has a wife so now I have a titi and a auntie.
  • Matt:Okay. Then maybe I'll marry him.
  • Dave:(from across the room) No you can't you're seven.
  • (Age was apparently the only foreseeable problem anyone of my elementary schoolers could see with gay marriage. I almost cried out of happiness. Later, when I was asked if boys could kiss anyone they wanted, I replied "only if they want to kiss you back." And Josie responded "Yeah! Your body your life.")
  • My students are the shit.
  • MY HEART IS EXPLODING
