If you were hiding under a rock somewhere, you probably didn’t see Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover. It was huge news this week (eclipsing even Kim’s news that she’s pregnant again), and it’s been really interesting, thinking about what makes a family today…
That’s also something we’ve been talking about more on the blog.
Not many of us in the Studio have that typical, “nuclear family”. I have stepparents, my dad’s adopted, I have enough cousins to start a revolution probably. But that’s not so out of step with everyone else’s — we all kind of have crazy family histories and really intricate family trees. So, what makes a normal family now, in the dynamic world of today?
So, I was thinking about this when I cam across this really intimate video featuring Josephine Skriver. She’s a model, who has a really interesting family dynamic — both of there parents are gay, and found each other using a newsletter in Denmark…
I love how open she is about her experiences, and how enlightening her story is of the struggles she faces on social media and in everyday life. And we’ve seen a bit of that in response to Bruce coming out as Caitlyn in the most public of ways. But, who are we to judge?
Maybe it’s (finally!) about time to start celebrating.
So, what do you think? Does a “normal” family even exist now? What does yours look like?
