I have probably mentioned Penelope Trunk before - she writes about career advice (and has done several start-ups) and homeschooling (not from a religious/Evanglical perspective, she's Jewish). The advice itself is not at all applicable to me or my life, and I don't always agree with her, but she writes extremely well and engagingly and generally with brutal honestly. But these two posts I really wanted to share:

My 12-year-old son just told me he’s gay. How can I help him?

Dear Princeton University, I love you

(The second one ties in with the first, despite the title.)

The visit to The Attic freed him, and I hadn’t even known he needed freeing.

This is beautiful. I want to reach through the internet and hug both her and her son.

That's one way of putting it. I actually stopped to reply to the one who said that by posting this entry, she obviously put her son at risk of predators. Like, who actually believes this is how child molesters work!?
