Oliver Button Is a Sissy: A Sweet Vintage Celebration of Difference and the Courage to Withstand Stereotypes

by Maria Popova
An illustrated homage to those who brave the violence of our narrow cultural norms.

But childhood can also be a gruesome microcosm of our human capacity for cruelty — perhaps nowhere more so than in precisely that tyranny of stereotypes and the bullying it engenders.

In the 1979 gem Oliver Button Is a Sissy (public library) — a fine addition to the best LGBT children’s books — beloved children’s book author and illustrator Tomie dePaola (b. September 15, 1934) tells the story of a little boy who doesn’t enjoy doing all the boy-things expected of him and finds himself, like many kids have, bullied for preferring more creative and “feminine” pastimes.

The marvelous illustrations are reminiscent of early Maurice Sendak — incidentally, another gay man who was bullied for being an artsy “sissy” as a child — yet dePaola’s sensibility is unmistakably his own.

We meet little Oliver, who prefers drawing and reading and picking flowers to playing sports. And when he has to do the latter, he is decidedly bad at it — so bad that the team captain always bemoans being stuck with klutzy Oliver Button.

Oliver likes to play dress-up in the attic, so he can sing and dance and dream of being a star. Most of all, he likes to tap-dance.

But even his parents aren’t comfortable with Oliver’s difference, so when they finally agree to send him to Ms. Leah’s Dancing School, his father mumbles the self-conscious justification that it’s “for the exercise.”

At the dance school and at home, Oliver practices with joy. At school, he endures the boys’ constant teasing about his tap shoes — and when the girls leap to his defense, he is teased all the more for having to get help from the girls.

To make matters even more unambiguous and publicly humiliating, the bullies graffiti the school wall.

But Oliver isn’t discouraged. Instead, he does as Neil Gaiman counseled in his spectacular commencement address — when face with criticism and rejection, the only sensible response is to keep making art. He continues to practice, determined to dazzle at the upcoming school talent show.

When the big day comes, Oliver gives it his very best, tap-dancing up a storm. His final bow is followed by exuberant applause.

But when the winner is announced — baton-twirler Roxie Valentine — Oliver can barely hold back his tears.

The next day, he can’t bear the thought of going to class — but go he must. Crestfallen, he makes his way to school and is the last to go in when the bell rings. But then something miraculous happens — one of those small mercies that can change a life, an act that calls to mind George Saunders on the power of kindness. Having seen Oliver for who he really is, through the art he so loves, the boys have revised their graffiti.

Oliver’s story is closely based on dePaola’s own childhood experience — a gay man, he grew up in an era where he didn’t even know what “gay” meant and only felt a profound, aching sense of difference. He recounts:

I could spend hours drawing, and nobody ever asked me to play on their ball teams because I was so bad at it. But, like Oliver, I was a great tap dancer!

Fortunately for dePaola, and even more fortunately for us, he did what Oliver did — he just kept making art and went on to delight generations with his warm, wonderful, deeply assuring children’s books.

When somebody commits “bullycide" (suicide due to extreme bullying), the last thing on the public's mind is the risk management strategy of a bank. So when Christina Frosti committed suicide, nobody expected the issue to go from why was she bullied so much to why are the banks of the world using such shoddy risk management systems in a matter of weeks. How did that happen?

Two months after Christina transferred to her new school, things changed. The cheerleaders began picking on her. They literally left no stone unturned. From putting her profile on dating sites without her knowledge to booby trapping her house, these people would stop at nothing to make Christina's life hell. It only got worse once she tried to call the police. If Christina did anything, it would automatically get worse. She ended up committing suicide.

Rather than chalk it up to kids being kids, the local authorities treated it as a murder. All of the emails and stuff were traced back to an email from a cheerleader called Charity Moncek. Moncek's email to Frosti was titled “this is funny!" and it contained a video of the Plooky song from the Maurice Sendak cartoon Seven Little Monsters. When questioned about the email, Mallock said she received it from her boyfriend Gunther Schiefflen, who was on the football team. Schiefflen said that the email originated from his teammate Alfred Katzenelenbogen. When questioned, Katzenelenbogen said that the email came from Ursula O'Brien, a software engineer and a woman he didn't know. Here is O'Brien's word on the email: “Oh, yeah, that wasn't for him. That was for one of my buddies, Alfred Katzenellenbogen. It's my bad, I forgot one of the L's in his name. He asked me if I knew anything about how the bank's risk management system worked and I think that clip of that song from Seven Little Monsters should more or less give you the whole story."

Just like that, things changed. It went from being a bullying issue to a banking issue. One by one, the banks if the world came under fire. At first, it was those named in O'Brien's testimony. Then, when trying to defend themselves; the bank not only incriminated themselves, but other major banks worldwide. It was madness. No matter how the banks tried to defend themselves, it only got worse and worse. The bank tried to cover up any evidence of using a crappy risk management system, and it would blow up in their face. Their excuse for using outdated risk management software was sent thing to the tune of “well, we can't change our software, the stock market will implode." Well, the banks are using outdated risk management software. If anything comes out of this (which, given how stubborn banks are and how everyone has more or less abandoned the sad case of Christina Frosti) it'll probably be a major overhaul in how the bank manages risk. It won't happen overnight, but it'll happen. We hope.

While cleaning/tiding up my bookcase, I stumbled across this little gem by Maurice Sendak, "NUTSHELL LIBRARY". It is a little box set that contains 4 little books all written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. It's so small that it fits into the palm of my hand. Four little amazing books, "Chicken Soup with Rice", "One was Johnny", "Pierre", "Alligators all Around". :)
