Bravo to men who are willing to simply be upstanding adults when our culture makes it clear that only weirdos are interested in kids other than their own. Mom in the second story is a control freak, and her son just happens to an available person to control. I think a lot of bubble wrapping is about control, and kids are just the unfortunate victims. Your photo reminds me of when I was a kid. We lived four houses down from a corner gas station. We had one toilet for a family of 8.

Year-Old Twink: 'We're Not All Bouncy Airheads!'
Originally published on Trend Magazine. And although it was funny the first couple times, it's really fucking irritating to hear. Especially from people not in the community who know nothing of the word or its meaning. And what is that meaning exactly? A twink is generally a young, small-built, effeminate and hairless gay man. You usually see these gays wandering around the clubs with tank tops, skinny jeans, eyebrows on fleek and in a pack of what would otherwise be known as clones.
The Dancing Boys of Afghanistan
There were twinks who worked for charity, fought HIV, devoted themselves to family, and did all sorts of things beyond just being smooth and frothy. Do you think of yourself as an intellectual? I love learning, bettering myself and doing things that involve knowledge of this world. You make good friends.
The Dancing Boys of Afghanistan exposes the horrific practice called Bacha Bazi, in which young Afghan boys are sold to warlords and powerful businessmen to be trained as dancers who perform for male audiences in women's clothing and are then used and traded for sex. The practice is sadly making a comeback in that country. As the West pours billions of dollars into the fight against the Taliban in southern Afghanistan, an ancient tradition banned when the Taliban were in power has re-emerged across the rest of the country. Many hundreds of young boys living in extreme poverty are lured off the streets on the promise of a new life away from destitution, unaware their real fate is to be used for entertainment by the warlords and other powerful men of Afghanistan. Having gained remarkable access inside a sexual exploitation ring, award-winning Afghan journalist Najibullah Quraishi investigates this illegal practice, the consequences of which are shrouded by a focus on the war.
