Is your child Gay? (Want to find out?)

From the "Can't make this shit up" Department:

Does little Nunzio play with sisters Barbie Doll?. Does little Johnny cry frequently? Did you know your kids may be turning Gay?

Homosexuality can be prevented by parential intervention. But before you set your kids "straight", you must first recognize the signs.

Do you have evidence that they are wrong? I would love to have some hard evidence to the contrary. Are you critisizing them because they are wrong or because they disagree with your preconceived notions?

I wrote last month about getting re-married to a wonderful man with whom I have been living for more than three years.
If only all blogs on the web could be this valuable!

Here's another resource you'll find useful on iron chandelier related information. Check out my iron chandelier site.

Sylvansurf, I have three comments for you. One, I'll use a quote from a doctor named Robert J. Frascino when dealing with a similar question:

"...do you realize that there is irrefutable scientific evidence of homosexual behavior in virtually all mammalian species and that human gay activity has been with us since the dawn of antiquity? These facts make arguments like yours irrelevant as well as illogical. I agree that gay, straight, or whatever should not make any difference and hope that someday everyone will 'accept the truth.'"

I criticize them because they're wrong. I criticize them because their being wrong involves very hurtful behavior--like rejecting their own children for being who they are. I criticize them because their inability to admit homosexuality exists on a concrete level paves the way for discrimination, which, in turn, paves the way for hatred, violence and death.

The second point I'd like to make is that almost nobody in this country has a preconceived notion that homosexuality is normal because our sick fucking culture has hidden homosexuality from itself for an extremely long time. Those of us who naturally accept it as normal usually do so as a result of a combination of education, intelligence and/or actual non-censored life experience.

The third point I'd like to make is that this website advocates very un-Christian behavior and it is shameful that a group of neo nazis like the religious right can act as "helpful guides" to exert control over stupid, scared and/or bigoted people like this. These are the same kinds of people who argued for the institution of slavery because of bible passages doing the same. Did you know there are no such references (slavery, homosexuality, woman-hating bullshit, etc) in the New Testament? None. You know why? Because the passage of time allows for shifts in the definition of morality among the people of this earth. That's why Jesus talked about loving everybody--including prostitutes, criminals, and people who worked on fucking Saturday. Christians now acknowledge, contrary to the Old Testament, that slavery is immoral. They pretend to acknowledge that women are equal human beings to men, despite everything they've read to the contrary in the O.T. Why the hell can't they do the same for this thinly-veiled gay bashing? It's sick. They're SICK. And you're sick for buying into that shameful, hateful, dangerous ideology.

I didn't know where to begin my reply to sylvansurf. Fortunately for me, you expressed my feelings exactly.

Yikes,that's dangerous thinking.

Good thing,I can stop it right here with my own kids.I can teach them right from wrong and be a good example,so when they come across negative,warped thinking,they are able to recognize it for what it is.

I am very lucky to have a gay friend.She helps me put a face and a name to all of this for them.
It hurts me,on her behalf to read such an article,and reminds me,that all is not well with this issue.Contrary to what *they* would have the rest of us believe.

Hey you used my email forward! I'm officially blog-famous now.

I'm more interested in what causes such revulsion in people about it, particularly males. As one myself, I'm still at a loss as to why being called gay is such an egregious offense. A fuller examination of that would serve us better than investigating the "causes" of homosexuality.

Interesting.

Part of it must be fear. I grew up in NYC, and have spent most of my life in big cities. Diversity is a way of life. Individual sexual preference is a non-issue. No big deal.

There are people who are scared of Gays. The same way many of us are scared of what we don't know or understand.

The same way our nation shit it's pants when Sputnik whizzed by, beeping harmlessly.

Likewise, there is the whole football sports guns macho thing.

There are plenty of effeminate Gay men. Gay men on prime-time sitcoms are a bunch of flaming fags, so unlike Gay men in the real world.

This is harmful, working to strengthen old stereotypes.

Hate unites. Nothing like Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt to control the masses. The turdblossom knows this better than anyone alive. People are taught to fear anything different than what they are.

Fear of Homosexuals
Fear of terrorism
Fear of the decay of society

It's all the same thing.

There are other gays on tv. There are gay NFL stars. Gay NBA stars. Gay politicians and authority figures. Gay news people, weathermen, and public access hosts. And there are a lot...a LOT of gays in Hollywood, so there are a lot of gays in sitcoms, documentaries and movies. It's just that most people don't notice these things.

Gays on TV..

Every decorator is a flamboyant gay
Every designer is a flamboyant gay
And then there is Queer Eye and that stupid network sit-com.

The thing is, there really is no way to tell a gay from a straight, so TV, being bigger than life, makes gays look somewhat unflattering.
