    I want to work with kids.  I'm a guy.  no working with little kids.  But we would have so much FUN learning and playing together - but society says I'm a pervert for having a penis.

    I would be a kick ass preschool or kindergarden teacher.  But even at college when I looked into changing to early childhood education - oh no, you can't do that.  Something must be wrong with you that you want to be around little kids.  We don't want MEN around our little kids.

    Funny.  I have a dad and I wanted him around a LOT more when I was a little kid.  But what do I know, right?  Dickholders don't count.

    And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...

      I ever had was as a teen working with 6 to 9 year olds at a daycare center. Sadly, I don't think that would be possible today.

      Nothing human is alien to me.

        largely  because I interacted with them and played with them instead of turning on the TV and telling them to shut up.  

        But no, I don't think it would be possible today.

          Mortifyd and Will Reeves,

          A while ago, I wrote a post asking if your babysitter is a guy, and i was horrified how many women said they would never consider one. My NYC daughter has always used male babysitters, and both my grandson and granddaughter seem to prefer them. "They are more fun," they explain. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of my young uncles babysitting.

          My brother has taught grade school in Portland Maine for thirty years. He says the climate has totally changed. If a little kid falls down, hurts himself, is bleeding, he is not supposed to pick him up. That is deranged.

          What messages are we sending our children?
