One Bad Mother Episode 222: Flexibility Hurts plus LGBTQ Literary Archivist Lee Wind!

One Bad Mother
Biz Ellis
Theresa Thorn
Lee Wind

Biz and Theresa wonder which is harder, having to be the more flexible person in the family with our work and personal needs, or adjusting our attitudes to be happy about it? How do we find the energy to adjust how we feel about it if we are always spending that energy being so freaking flexible!!? Which came first, the bitter chicken or the miserable egg? Maybe just talking it to death will help. Plus the walls are talking to Biz, Theresa made it and we talk to blogger and author Lee Wind about LGBTQ literature for young adults and children.

Check out Lee Wind's blog I'm Here. I'm Queer. What the hell do I read? for comprehensive lists of LGBTQ literature and follow him on Twitter @leewind.
