Agreed. She says "My son is gay. Or he's not. I don't care, he's still my son."

Especially a bad idea to post the photo of the kid.

there are two issues here the first she allowed her so nto dress as Daphne, IMO no big deal second issue she plasterd it all over the internet, IMO big deal, BleedBurgandy is totally correct on this part and SS.

Yes, I think my reading comprehension is to the point where I understood that. The point is, she's introducing the concept and it really doesn't have anything to do with the issue. Her typing the phrase "my son is gay" is a bad idea. If some random commenter wants to infer that, then that's just your typical internet trolling. If she wants to say, "my kid is 5 and wanted to dress up like Daphne, it's not a big deal, he's only 5," and there's no picture posted, I don't think you have near the outrage or attention that this has received. The whole thing comes off as if she's trying to use her kid for a little social activism. On it's face, that's disgusting.

One thing for sure if he ever runs for office that picture will pop up the day before the election.

To quote the article's beginning:
Quote:

Or hes not.
Bold, capitalized, underlined, clearly what she wanted to catch our attention, then a little disclaimer that maybe her billboarded point is not what she meant.

A mother who would post up those words in a public place (internet) for the whole world to see is clearly a questionable parent, so it wouldn't be a shock if this kid turns out mentally damaged and sexually confused.

Only if she's a Republican. Facts about Democrats get hidden until after they're in office. :cheeky-sm

First post:

"Or he's not.
<picture of you in pink polo shirt>
Discuss."





It's harmless, right? I never said you were.

Well, like I've said, if all you read is the headline then yeah you might think that all she's saying is her son is gay. But it's smart to never just read the headline. And, like I've said, I don't agree with her decision to even blog about this but I don't think this blog is going to lead him down a path of mental damage or sexual confusion

Now here's the question...

Is this due to abuse, teasing and getting exposed as gay...or is it because homosexuality is actually a mental disorder with inherent emotional issues?

I have learned to like you Buster outside of the political form, which I don't venture too, but you are clearly a homophobic. Why are you afraid them? They won't attack you. You don't have to watch their sexual act. So why does it bother you so much?

I am seriously asking I understand homosexuals better then I do homophobic people. Enlighten all of us on your fear of them...

Well lets see if we go into the reasoning of homophobic Buster; He originally said homosexuality is a choice but now says it is a mental disorder.

So using Homophobic Buster's reasoning:

All Homosexuals have chosen to have a mental disorder.


Makes perfect sense! Thank you Homophobic Buster.

Correct, it IS one of those, could be a mix of both. One causing the other.



Also, not "afraid" of them...just quite sick of their in-your-face tactics to get noticed, special rights and sympathy.

Also, if they're engaging in their affection in public, political correctness says we dare not tell them to stop...that would be "hate speech" and "discrimination".

They get away with FAR MORE than heterosexual, NORMAL people.




When was the last time you saw a Straight Pride parade? Or a straight "club"? The more they push, the less accepted they become.


Back to the topic....this woman KNOWS it's a controversial issue, ESPECIALLY with a young child involved, yet she knowingly disparaged her son online and started this whole mess, that will likely follow him for the rest of his life. One day in college, a fellow schoolmate from this class will run into him...and if they're not good friends, there's a good chance he'll be known as Daphne around campus. Thanks, Mom.

Wait, so homosexuality is a mental disorder people choose to have? Is that right?

Pretty much every parade is for "straight" people and the majority of clubs are for "straight".

Do you use this same reasoning when discussing blacks and whites? Seems it.

You should move to DC and see what it is like to live in multicultural environment, you might be surprised and learn something.
