Haylee Bazen, from Cambridge, was shocked when a woman told her she should be embarrassed the other day. The reason? Her 3-year-old son was wearing a Disney princess dress. She wrote an open letter response to the jibe.

Haylee said, "She asked me if I was punishing him and if I'd put him in that dress because he'd been bullying girls.

"She told me that we should be embarrassed and that boys shouldn't wear dresses but if anything she's the one who should be embarrassed."

"If I saw someone on the street in an outfit I didn't like or thought didn't suit them I wouldn't stop them and shame them - why ruin someone's day?

"Zackary loves dressing up, some days he'll want to be a pirate or put on zombie make up but he also loves Disney and on this particular day wanted to wear his dress to school to show his friends."

Right on Haylee!

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
