Oh, he horrors to find out your kid might be straight. Every parent’s worst nightmare or something.
A 37-year-old gay mom is set to spark controversy after she said she’d be disappointed if her six-year-old daughter wasn’t gay when she grows up.
Jesus, the kid is six and has to ensure this madness.
Sally Kohn a political commentator who has appeared on CNN and MSNBC, describes herself as living in the ‘liberal bubble of Park Slope, Brooklyn, where ‘yuppies’ want their kids to be happy.
She said: ‘I’m gay. And I want my kid to be gay, too.’
In a lengthy essay in The Washington Post Kohn explained that, she, like most parents simply wants her child to follow in her footsteps.
She writes: ‘If we went to college, we want our kids to go to college. If we like sports, we want our kids to like sports. If we vote Democrat, of course we want our kids to vote Democrat.’
Or you could let your child develop their own thoughts and likes. I know, crazy.
Kohn said: ‘When my daughter plays house with her stuffed koala bears as the mom and dad, we gently remind her that they could be a dad and dad.
‘Sometimes she changes her narrative. Sometimes she doesn’t. It’s her choice.’
‘Time will tell, but so far, it doesn’t look like my six-year-old daughter is gay. In fact, she’s boy crazy.’
Imagine if a straight conservative media type said they prayed their kid didn’t turn out gay. Maybe by the time the kid grows up Ms. Kohn will too. Whatever the case, she’s got plenty of platforms to spew her idiocy.
In a parenting blog for The New York Times she described her experience of being ‘a butch lesbian’ taking her five year old daughter for a Princess makeover at Disney World.
She wrote: I have been a tomboy all my life. When I played with dolls they were usually being sacrificed in some sort of erupting volcano-like mud hole in my backyard or running for their lives.’
‘My partner and I certainly didn’t teach our daughter to like pink and ruffles and such. And I can’t fathom some genetic or biological nodule that predisposes my girl to like dolls while little boys like trucks. Baloney.’
Way over-thinking things here.
