Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Gender policing; implied violence.]

"It's my money, it's my gift to him, if it's what he wants I'm getting it for him, and if your gonna hit anyone for it, it's going to be me."—A big brother, to his father, who was berating the little brother for wanting a purple controller and a video game with a female protagonist. Seen by a retail worker who assured the little brother after dad stormed off that "There's nothing wrong with what you like. Even if it's different than what people think you should."

All in.
