Tomboy

Summary: A rare animated short about a young girl sent to “Camp Conformity” when the adults around her think her gender identity issues need to be “fixed”.

Kword Thoughts: As you can tell I am sucker for movies involving children. This was a great example of how the road to hell is paved with good intentions. The little girl’s father just wanted her to be happy, but he didn’t know how. The teacher wanted to be normal, even if normal killed her spirit. In the end the love of a father saved the innocence of a child…*sigh*.

The Quote from the Peanut Gallery: ” I lived this. ”
