Lindsay Amer, the host of a YouTube series called Queer Kid Stuff, created an episode titled “What do you call QUEER PARENTS?” Teddy, Lindsay’s sidekick, asked Lindsay how children refer to their queer parents. Lindsay responds by stating that there are many answers. Following, Amer shows clips of multiple queer people and how they prefer to be referred.
One of the guests says that her child refers to her as “ama.” Another guest says that they prefer to be called “nibling” by their aunts and uncles and “sibster” by their siblings.
At the end of the episode, even Lindsay admits that she has never heard of some of those words.
Most Queer Kid Stuff episodes discuss gender, feminism, privilege, and other social justice issues, specifically designed for young children. In one episode, Lindsay reads a children’s book explaining where babies come from. In other episodes, she explains why parents should not have gender reveal parties and invites a young boy to explain why he is queer. More recently, Lindsay brought on a guest who forces her students to share their preferred gender pronouns. Amer also believes that all kids are queer and doctors should stop “assigning” gender at birth.
