Cliches Explained Part Six: Blissful Ignorance

Reblogged from The Ninja Reader:
So you’re a parent or a legal guardian, and you’re reasonably sure your kid will at some point have to face the truth: they descend from a line of cyber zombie werewolves and that is going to completely destroy their social life. Do you:
 
 
a/ Tell them as soon as they’re old enough to understand and then spend the next few years drilling them about safe fursplosions or,
 
b/ Keep them in the dark until they’re literally rolling on the floor screaming: “TARGET ACQUIRED BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAINS!”
 
Admittedly, when I put it like that, it doesn’t seem very fair.
