Science is beginning to confirm what our little mook already knew.
There has been nothing more frustrating, in my experience alongside Stella’s journey, than having people imply her preferences are just a matter of us “allowing” something or her “wanting to be different.”
These folks are also often the same group that offers up the “if it’s a real thing why hasn’t it come up until now?” talking point.
Now that the science begins to roll in, because a number of brave people risked their own safety to push a modicum of civility on the ignorant mob, the friendships and familial links we’ve lost will no doubt remain just as abandoned, but:
As Stella has forced us to engage in bettering ourselves to meet our child’s needs, let this be a moment to consider what blockages you hold in your own thinking – what you’ve been considering a “settled matter” when the truth is that perhaps the topic simply hasn’t been allowed enough sunlight to reveal itself properly.
Some are born knowing, but the rest of us need to take the time to learn.
