Some guys get nervous when they approach women in public and pranker Kevin Brueck get’s wet. Roman Atwood and Dennis Roady published on YouTube channel a new video – “Christmas With Pranksters!!”. Stuart Edge, a YouTube prankster, goes to Tempe, Arizona, where it never snowed, for a new prank.

I showed up on an early morning, strapped on my 6-month-old daughter, and awkwardly asked the more veteran mommy volunteers what I was supposed to be doing. So, while straightening shelves and waiting for the next batch of kids to arrive with their Ziploc baggies full of money, I familiarized myself with some of the offerings. At first, my eyes passed right over it, thanks to the hand drawn child’s doodle on the cover. Then, on a second pass, I actually read the cover. How to Get a Girlfriend is a how-to guide written and illustrated by a group of Kindergarteners. Right off the bat, How to Get a Girlfriend is 100% a guide written by boys, telling other boys what they need to do to get a girlfriend. I won’t spoil the rest of the tips How to Get a Girlfriend offers, but I can tell you that I was completely thrown off by the fact that this book even exists. Maybe I’m off-base here, but I believe that the role of the teacher in my son’s classroom is to teach age-appropriate topics, and to prevent students from being exposed to inappropriate topics by older children. Say it with me: this boy-gets-girl heteronormative dating manual written by and marketed to five year olds (with the encouragement of their Kindergarten teacher), won an award from the company that decides what books are put in front of our children at their public school book fairs. When I expressed my concern with the fact that my son’s school was displaying and selling a dating manual for children during a school sponsored book fair, I was met with varying responses. Some, on the other hand, thought that I was the absurd one for being concerned or upset at all. The idea that I might be “overly concerned” got mirrored by some friends and parents that I greatly respect, and with whom I typically share similar opinions.
Amazon’s reviews were similarly split – some reviewers joked about buying it for their teenagers, another said she bought it for her boyfriend as an anniversary gift. Is it such a big thing to challenge the idea that our 5-year-old children do not need heteronormativity pushed on them in school, before they can even read or write on their own, in the form of a dating manual wherein boys are told that if they do certain things and find a certain girl they can “get her” as a girlfriend? When I reached out to The Mary Sue to pitch this article, my editor asked that I look into other examples of heteronormativity in my child’s life (and mine). That being said, I’m going to offer up a current and somewhat more accessible example of what I think went wrong with How to Get a Girlfriend – and I’m hoping you can see the similarities here when all is said and done. We took him to see the Peanuts movie, thinking it was going to be a great cross-generation experience. In case you missed that, the entire plot of The Peanuts movie is based on two parallel story lines. In true homage to the original comic strips, the Little-Red-Haired Girl does not show her face. Along those same lines, the Pink-Haired Poodle pilot (badass) that Snoopy spends 90 minutes pursuing? How and why is a school sponsored book fair selling a heterosexually influenced dating guide to kindergarteners? As a person who falls under that glorious Rainbow Spectrum, the fact that my current relationship is a male-female one means that many people don’t feel I get to have an opinion.
I have made it my mission for my son to understand that just because he was conceived by a man and a woman, and that his parental figures resemble a heteronormative couple, doesn’t mean that other kinds of relationships don’t exist or are less-than in some way.


After spending time with a friend of his who comes from a same-sex parent family, we walked by a wedding with two brides, and he started telling us that there “must be a mistake” because they were “missing the boy.” Years of hard work keeping his eyes open, and we’re constantly fighting every step of the way to hold that ground, let alone gain more. Like I said, it’s 2015, and I think it’s time we gave heteronormativity a shelf way up high in the back of a dark closet.

Here’s the bad news: No magic pill exists that will transform you into a great writer overnight.
Asked if any book should be banned, students give varied answers, but no matter their opinion, few students have heard of Banned Books Week. I was too new to work the cash register, and there were only a few kids wandering around that early. I had been looking for books that would inspire my son to strengthen his story-telling skills, an area of opportunity for him according to his speech therapist. The teacher of these kindergarten-aged authors helped and instructed and allowed this book to be created—and then? I don’t need teachers to encourage this kind of reading and writing material, when they could be helping students to become respectful, tolerant, open-minded humans. In most of the illustrations in How to Get a Girlfriend, the only gender indicators are things like the color of the clothing or the shape of the clothing on the person.
More than a few parents looked at me with disbelief when I took issue with the situation and voiced my concern. Honestly, I started to wonder if it was possible that I was just seeing something that wasn’t there. Parents and teachers alike got congratulated and metaphorically clapped on the back by anonymous purchasers. I started looking around, and I realized what we really need is an article that gives examples of diverse relationship representations. Some of us watch Charlie Brown’s Christmas every year, others casually quip “I got a rock” when they joke about Halloween. She has neither a name, nor a voice, nor does Snoopy ever actually interact with her or speak with her before he decides that he should spend the entire movie attempting to “get” her. It’s important to me because in a movie where Charlie Brown read all of “War and Peace,” wrote a really fantastic book report, demonstrated wonderful acts of honesty, empathy, trustworthiness and respect — and when I asked my 5 year old what his favorite part of the movie was? We regularly read books with diverse families represented, and spend time with friends and family members who are both ethnically diverse and members of what I like to call “The Rainbow Spectrum.” Every day we talk about differences, and how they make us all special and wonderful. How and why is there a kindergarten teacher out there somewhere encouraging 5-year-old boys to write a book about how boys can get girlfriends?
Despite spending time with many same-sex couples, and with trans individuals, and having open and appropriately handled conversations with him about these things, it seems like it’s an up-hill battle against a sea of cisnormativity and heteronormativity. It’s time we gave the Rainbow Spectrum a bit more of the spotlight — after all, it’s not really in the closet anymore. She is passionate about diversity and equality, and the people that make our worlds go round.


In my high school days, I advised my Argentine friend who was interested in Japan and studied Japanese how to get a Japanese girlfriend.
After studying in the US for a year, I have had some experiences that made me feel both amazed and a little embarrassed at the same time. It was his first real book fair, as opposed to the flimsy scholastic book order forms that get sent home with too little notice, then immediately get lost on the kitchen counter.
Upon looking at this book cover, I went pretty quickly from feeling intrigued to horrified. Then it got submitted to a competition called “Kids are Authors,” at which the book won an award sponsored by Scholastic, the number one national seller of books for kids in school book fairs. It’s a heteronormative how-to dating manual, which fails to include the options of a girl “getting” a guy, or any diverse representations of LGBTQ+ relationships. They felt that if the school really needed to include this book, they could have done so at the older grade levels. One mom literally dropped what she was doing, looked at me with what I can only describe as annoyance, and asked “Did you even read it before you say things like that?” Thankfully, I was able to assure her that I had! He needs to track down a Pink-Haired Poodle pilot he saw one time, so that he can love her and defeat the Red Baron. He told us that he loved that “Charlie Brown got to be a Winner!” (wait for it) “When he got that girl to like him!” When we pushed for more, asking if there was anything else that he liked?
We point out what beauty is, we praise him for his hard work and effort as opposed to his natural talents. In some states, there are many individuals who fall on the Rainbow Spectrum who are finally getting the rights and protections they deserve to be treated humanely. Why is a nationally renowned and recognized book publisher and seller awarding this book as a gold standard?
We found terrible traffic jams around all the big cities we came across in our way: Houston, Beaumont, Lafayette, and, especially, Baton Rouge. Two aspects of our school culture and personality make it the ideal place for you to learn English: 1) the innovative teachers, and 2) cross-cultural interactions among students. Because 100% of the books, movies, advertisements, shows and games that were readily and easily available to my son in his school and library are heteronormative. So, we decided to have some quality family time, and we took him to go see a wholesome family movie at a nearby Cinema-Pub. Pink-Haired Poodle pilot’s plane is shot down by the old foe, and Snoopy gives up his victory to save her life. We try so hard, and in 90 minutes, he learned that “to be a winner” he needed to do everything he could to get a girl who had no face or name to like the main character. Later, someone told us that after Katrina the city of Baton Rouge grew dramatically, and now the highway for entering the city is too small for the current size of the town. The present perfect is for actions that started in the past and are continuing to happen now. Why couldn’t it have included pages about how girls can get boyfriends, or how boys and girls could get same-sex dating partners? Multiple times in The Peanuts movie, Charlie Brown suggested that if the Little-Red-Haired Girl didn’t end up noticing or liking him, then all his efforts would be for nothing.
