Student: I wanna choose what you draw next
Me: What did you have in mind?
Student: Rainbow Dash from Equestria Girls
Me: Maybe, could be fun
Student: I know boys don’t like it…
Me: Sure they do, I like it
Student: (Other student) doesn’t like it, he only likes super heroes
Me: Lemme tell ya something kiddo, when I was in 3rd grade my family moved to a different town and I went to a new school. I was all about Power Rangers, like religiously. Every kid shamed me for it so in an effort to fit in I pretended not to like it either, but I still watched it everyday without fail. I’m sure (other student) likes it too, but is afraid of what other people will say. Don’t let anyone shame you out of something you really love, the social acceptance isn’t worth the self loathing and fitting in is waaaay overrated anyway.
