-Ya, we talk about privilege again. We do get a little bit of pushback every time we bring it up! Not gonna stop though, as both Blair and I believe it’s important.

-As mentioned, having a guest on that’s anonymous, it’s new to us as we like to publicly affirm and celebrate all of our guests. This doesn’t mean we don’t affirm and love this individual, because we do, we just want to honour the legitimate reasons why they’ve chosen to remain anonymous!

-What’s the difference between gender identity and sexual orientation? Here’s a start: https://www.healthline.com/health/sex-vs-gender#sex

-As Blair mentions, remember, we aren’t experts on any of this. We are trying. We are learning WITH you!

-The gay agenda…please stop. No one is going to “make your kid gay” or whatever else your theory is on what the “gay agenda” is. To me the only agenda I see is for all of us (including Queer folk) to find freedom in being who we all are at our deepest levels.

-“I didn’t get to choose to be attracted to both genders.” YUP! Not a choice.

-Our guest makes an excellent point about how kids are much more understanding than adults most of the time. I’ve seen this so often.

-Misgendering. Is this harmful? We believe it is. Here’s why: https://www.healthline.com/health/transgender/misgendering#why-it-happens

-“Why are we even asking kids their gender in the first place?” YESSSS!

-How to find safe places in churches for Queer folks? It’s very hard. Church clarity is a fantastic organization. Check them out here: https://www.churchclarity.org/

-We’ve used the term colonization a few times. Here’s what we mean: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/culture/topics/reference/colonialism/

-“Creator and God, same person” 👏👏👏

-“The church that was home for me, isn’t home anymore.” Bet this resonates with a few folks. Sometimes not out of hurt, but a lot of the time it is.

-“Math sucks anyways!” -Blair (remember, we both went to bible college so we didn’t have to take math)

-Christians and purity culture are a terrifying mix… 😬

-“Let your kid take the lead, and don’t push it!”
