American Values

In my Audio Production course, the first assignment is to write a piece about American Values.  Promptly, I asked the professor if I could make it satirical.  He said no.  So, since then, I’ve just been trying to figure out how I’m to seriously include a set of “Values” that, to me, seem absurd and hypocritical.  But thinking further on the topic at hand it dawned on me this morning that the People of the United States have a different set of Values than the U.S. as a nation does.  The assignment doesn’t distinguish People from State.  I do, though.

Excellent article that shows life from both the parents’ and children’s perspectives. These are young kids and you know it has to be harder for the parents in that they have to explain it to everyone— schools, friends, neighbors, family— the trans* child can’t be expected to do this as in the case…
