"It’s important that everybody has a voice, but it does break my heart a bit that many years later it’s still about, ‘Oh this is a gay show, or this is a gay relationship, or you play a gay character.’ At what point does it just become, like, I’m playing a person?"

mistersmims: This lady’s spirit was joy unstoppable. I told her she was beautiful and her whole body lit up. After we took this picture together, I showed it to her and she smiled as big as she could and said in the sweetest broken English “You’re beautiful!” I didn’t stop smiling for the rest of the day. My Burmese grandmother. God bless her.

She saw gender and went to click female when she noticed the “other” choice
She looked at me confused and I started to explain that some people don’t think they fit in with strictly male or female
"Oh! You mean like transgender and stuff like that. I was freaked out for a second- I thought they meant robots."
Yet another example the kids are more open-minded than adults
