I just can't even imagine dealing with something like that! Especially from a place that is supposed to be a refuge. Not only could she not seek council from her pastor , but she was basically put on trial for defending her son's choice. So sad. Especially considering how happy he looks in his costume!

Yeah, it really isn't about the boy's happiness when this happens. I'm glad she's standing up for herself. She's a good mom.

So very discouraging. Makes me sad for humanity.

Indeed. I hear stories like this all the time. People believe it won't happen to them - that they are accepted. Then they find out that they are not good enough in the eyes of others.

She should continue to speak out. I sense a fighter here.
