All in Identity

Challenging everyday heteronormativity

I have lost count of the number of times that we’ve been told that the Troll is ‘going to break a lot of girls’ hearts when he gets older’ or that ‘all the girls at nursery will need to watch out for this charmer’, or, more recently, at the drop-in nursery we attend, that ‘he’s already found himself a girlfriend’ when another parent saw him happily playing in the sandpit with one of the girls. 

Feeling all the feels

I thought it would be a fun experiment, whilst also being an exercise in reflective thinking and creativity (and a test of my vocabulary!), to see if I could out together an A to Z of emotions, both negative and positive, that I regularly feel in relation to the Lykketroll.
