Stop looking at my Mom

Bugs me to think that our children are introduced to sexual objectification so young by watching it happen to us. But on a positive note, how fantastic is this kid? Here is an interview with Astronomical Kid. (Do not read the comments on that article, by the way).

“I didn’t like the way people were staring at my mother when I walked down the street. It was very offending,” the Bedford-Stuyvesant teen said.

“Every kid goes through that; every mother goes through that.

“Women, they are not pieces of meat. They are human beings. They should be respected,” he added. “Men should know better.”

Brian, a 5-foot-3 high school freshman, said he was infuriated by drooling men hollering, “Yo, Ma! What’s good, Ma?” at his mother on the street.

“I decided instead of being violent, and going about it the wrong way, I’d put it on a record,” he said. “It’s a track everyone can relate to. I don’t like people lookin’ at my moms. I’m pretty sure nobody likes it.”
