Is there a stage-parent pushing them?
Is the entirety of our culture a stage-parent pushing them?
So many thoughts about identity and other issues rush through your mind when you view the photo the way I’ve cropped it above.
In the wider cropping below those themes are still present… but… well… it’s a wider cropping!
It’s not Boise, Idaho.
Try Boksburg, South Africa.
