"Eliminate destructive thinking."

"You can only fit so many words in a postcard. Only so many in a phone call. Only so many into space, before you forget that words are sometimes used for things other than filling emptiness. It is hard to build a body out of words. I have tried. We have both tried."

Dear Lovely Humans,

In case you missed it, we have written a Q&A advice book for parents whose kids have recently come out them. It’s called This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids, and it’s available for pre-order through September 9th, when it will be a real, live book on the shelves of stores. (eeee!)

Today, we’d like to introduce you to our book’s hashtag!

We chose the hashtag #ThisIsOurBook, because we believe that this book truly belongs to all of us. We think that all parents, even those who don’t have out, LGBTQ children, should be given the tools to create accepting, welcoming environments for their kids. We think young people have the power to tell their parents that these resources exist, and shape a new conversation, or one that mends things that have been broken along the way. We think that this book should belong to more than just ‘parents of gay kids’… it should belong to you and your family, whomever they might be.

We’d love if you’d send us pictures of yourself telling us what “Family” means to you, and use our hashtag so we can find your words and pictures and share them far & wide. You can also use our hashtag to ask us questions about the book!

We love you all like whoa.
XOXO K&D

Can’t believe the Rams are going to cut Michael Sam. Every game I’ve seen him in, he’s looked great. Granted the St. Louis’ defensive front is easily one of the most stacked in the NFL, but I still thought he had a great chance. Hopefully he gets picked up somewhere else.

New photos depict horrific conditions at border detention center
June 17, 2014

New photos released by Rep. Henry Cuellar’s (D-Texas) office depict the unsanitary and cramped living conditions that undocumented immigrants, many of whom are unaccompanied children, are experiencing in a detention center near the U.S.-Mexico border.

The photos were first published by Business Insider on Monday. Cuellar’s office declined to tell the website who took the photos and where exactly they were taken.

President Barack Obama has previously called the buildup of unaccompanied minors at temporary border facilities an “urgent humanitarian situation,” and the government has directed considerable resources to housing and caring for the children. Customs and Border Protection, which is part of the Department of Homeland Security, is supposed to turn over minors to the Department of Health and Human Services within three days, but many children are remaining in detention facilities for longer periods due to the massive influx.

Breitbart Texas released photos of the crisis in early June that showed the undocumented immigrants living in tight, hard-floored spaces. CBP is currently investigating reports that minors have been mistreated at those facilities.

Cuellar, who toured a detention facility in McAllen, Texas, on Saturday with local officials, said in a press release on Monday that he believes federal officers “are doing all that they can under the circumstances to ensure every migrant is treated with dignity and respect.”

"There is no strong protocol in place for dealing with Central American immigrants and some of the most important work left is to improve the process for returning them to their home countries," he said. “The United States needs to do a better job in working with Mexico to strengthen their southern border and to work with the Central American countries of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.”

Vice President Joe Biden is set to travel to Latin America on Friday and will address the surge at the border.

Obama can call this an urgent humanitarian situation all he’d like. His record number of deportations speaks louder than any meaningless lip service. 

Nearly 50,000 unaccompanied minors have crossed the border & detained in these torturous conditions since Oct. 1. This is a state-sanctioned humanitarian crisis & government child abuse.
