Nerdy Apple Bottom

Don't mess with Nerdy Apple Bottom's children. Last November, the Kansas City blogger, who signs her work "Sarah," wrote about some parents' reactions to her son dressing as Daphne from Scooby-Doo for a preschool Halloween party. The kids liked the costume, but some of the mothers freaked, making comments in front of the kid (whom blog readers know as "Boo"). Sarah wrote of the experience: "If you think that me allowing my son to be a female character for Halloween is somehow going to 'make' him gay then you are an idiot." The story went national, with Sarah discussing boys dressing as girls on NBC's Today show. Months later, Sarah struck a chord again. In a blog post called "Epilogue," Sarah wrote that her church pastor had, in the name of "spiritual care," tried to get her to apologize to the mothers who had bad-mouthed her son and to remove her Halloween post. Sarah refused. That's our kind of mother.
