I explained about pen names, and how I started using the pen name for the gay romances I wrote because I was worried our conservative, fundamentalist neighbors wouldn't let their children play with him anymore if they knew about them. I used the example of this dickwad to remind him that this is how a hell of a lot of people think where we live.
My kid shuddered at the memory of the bigoted dickwad, then said, "I have a suggestion. We take your books to that guy, and do this...."
I thought he was going to mime giving the books to him, and was about to explain why it was a sweet idea but wouldn't make any difference.
My kid actually mimed using the books to hit the bigot over the head.
I love my kid.
