Gay Marriage Confuses Kids?
In, “This Is Your Kid On Gay Marriage,” Amelie Gillette writes,
“Now they’re saying that we can’t have gay marriage because it would confuse the kids. But you know what else confuses kids? Everything: Time zones. Books without pictures. Cargo pants. Certain hair colors. Jello molds. The magic trick with the quarter behind the ear. Mirrors. Mentadent toothpaste dispensers. Everything confuses kids, because they’re kids. So “Will it confuse kids?” is probably not the best litmus test for, well, anything besides toys and Spongebob plotlines (and even then, there’s a lot of leeway). “
There’s more in her post. I encourage you to take a look.
Oh, and if same-sex marriage confuses your kids, why don’t you be the adult, sit down, and explain the concept of love to them?
(Note: A New Civil Rights Movement Facebook fan page member mentioned this yesterday, so I thought I’d share it with everyone.)
Update: On Twitter, a reader responds with this:
“I think Straight Divorce is by far the most confusing 4 kids”
