Win Condition.

My daughter's birthday party is right now. The kids are watching Labyrinth. My first moment of amusement: they unilaterally condemn Sara's irresponsibility and exaggeration ("Oh my god, you only have to babysit once a week. You are not a slave, Sara.") My second moment of amusement: The kids are Very Aware of David Bowie's Package.

But the real win here:

Sara kisses Hoggle over his protests, and they are chuted down to the Bog of Eternal Stench.

E: See? You shouldn't kiss people when they tell you not to.
A: That's a lesson in general.
T: That's a lesson for men.
A: Heeey. Just because someone has a penis doesn't mean they can't be raped.
L, quietly: Is that true?
E: Oh, yeah. People of any gender can be raped by people of any gender.

And then they moved on. But just the fact that that conversation happened and that multiple teenage girls were like "yep, there are totally non-female survivors too" strikes me as a win.
