“Remember honey, when your aunts come over, you’re not to use the L word. OK?”
“I know, mom! You’ve only told me like a hundred times.” replied the young boy to his mother.
“I know you know honey, but you really hurt their feelings last time when you used that word. Your aunts love each other very much, and we need to respect their lifestyle. Using the L word is unacceptable in our modern society.”
“I got it, mom. I won’t use the L word.” replied the boy, looking a bit deflated.
“Good. Now smile and go say hi to your aunts. They’re at the door.” the boy’s mother pushed him along.
“Hi, Dykes!” the boy shouted to his aunts as his mother’s face turned ashen.
