    He's just a troll, look at the join date and post count. I'm actually a little disappointed, it's literally a 0/10 troll, I would figure someone would at least put a little more effort into it. Like, at least have some pride in your trolling.

    Speaking of Pride, I took my daughter to her first PRIDE event this year, and decided to walk in the parade with her while wearing a "Free Dad Hugs" T-shirt. Many of my daughter's friends talk about how their parents are not very loving or accepting of them. I figured that the least I could do was give out hugs, though I worried that it might all come across as a little hokey.

    So, wow. I stopped counting how many people I had hugged not even halfway through the event. It was just pointless once the number jumped over twenty. I don't think I hugged 100 people, but I dunno - maybe? It was a lot of fun and at times uplifting but also at times emotional. So many people thanked me for giving them a hug. One grown man cried about his father. More than a few young women close in age to my own children just hung on like it needed to last forever. I was with a group of Moms with "Free Mom Hugs" shirts - and while many of them also gave out hugs, I was always the one that would have to run to catch up to the parade group because of the line for Dad hugs.

    I still even at this moment worry that it felt less than genuine for people. But from me, it was heartfelt hugs all the way through. Tried to make every hug my best. Parents, love your kids.

    thats awesome!

    I'm sure it was heartfelt on the other side too. we had a group of moms/dads doing the same at our event last month, and there were a lot of tears.

    Hokey or not. You are showing support for your daughter. Showing support for others that need it.

    Funny enough they have 5 prisons in the city. One is on a boat. Another is Riker's Island which really has no walls just fences around the prison buildings. We are paving the island for them shit gets weird often. They have a few damn big Coyotes roaming around the island and the East River to keep everyone inside. Directly next to Laguardia airport as well, there is even a foot bridge from the Riker's Island bridge to the runways.

    Gordon, I promise that wasn't me and I'm sorry someone felt the need to put down your partner (or whatever term you prefer). I'm sorry for being a pretentious jerk to you. Please accept my apology.

    was that the joke? mis-labeling kassy? i legit still don't grasp what even was supposed to be funny/mocking in the post. i get that someone thought it was some kinda of snipe-shot, i just don't actually get what is supposed to be funny or insulting about it.

    I don't know the person's intention, but I've been guilty of making other digs at your life choices and it was wrong of me to have done that. I apologize. It's always easy to see the "faults" in others and much more difficult to come to grips with our "self." So, I understand if you chose not to forgive me, but the olive branch has been extended.
