I can't help but be pissed off that this book exists. That somebody at Disney put resources into it, and somebody at Barnes & Noble gave it a privileged position in a display. I can't help but wonder if the stories we tell our children shouldn't matter to us, just a little bit.

Kirk's tragic story suggests that failing to validate our children's burgeoning identity and pressuring them to adopt societal stereotypes results in long-term self-loathing and maladjustment and, possibly, self-annihilation.
