Scissor Sister Ana Matronic: I kept quiet about Dad being gay | Metro News

I’m very happy my mother was honest about these difficult things. I believe honesty is the best policy. We shouldn’t shield children from the horrors of the world. They aren’t separate from adults, they’re adults-in-training – you need to give them the necessary tools to survive and part of that is understanding the horrific things we go through as human beings and put each other through. There are some hard truths you have to share.

Daily Life in Korea 48

Today consisted of finally nice spring weather, a sick mother, a student hugging me, learning that students will be quiet if you won’t raise your voice (will to power, baby), and that Korean mothers teach their sons to pee in public.  Yes, I actually saw a mom holding her son’s penis and then shaking it for him – all outside right next to a four-lane street.  There is a reason Korea smells like a giant out-house all summer.  Thankfully your brain quits processing that smell after three days.  Unfortunately everything has traces of urine on it still.
