CNN Employee on HuffPost: 'My Son Wore a Dress for Halloween'
Newsbusters ^ | November 10, 2012 | Tim Graham

Posted on 11/10/2012 6:58:32 PM PST by OddLane

You might know you’re on The Huffington Post when you find an article headlined “My Son Wore a Dress for Halloween.” The author was Kelly Byrom, an “Art Director for HLN-TV and CNN.” Her son "Twirl" (a pseudonym) knocked on doors as the Disney fairy Silvermist.

Like a good liberal, she fears that her son will be pressured to change: "My biggest worry is the same as C.J.'s mom, who so eloquently wrote, "I don't want my boy to want a boy costume." I don't want my son to want a boy costume just because he is afraid to be himself. If he truly wants the boy costume, no big deal, but if he is doing it out of fear or shame, then that will be a problem."

Byrom thought it a little funny that she didn't want the skirt too short on her son's costume, so "he decided on Silvermist, the blue fairy who has a longer, blue dress with a little purple in it.

It’s easy to laugh at the madness of these ‘Rat media sickos...but it would make more sense to find a way to remove them permanently from positions of influence in society.

I have read of similar scenes where mother's get their jollies out of dressing their boys in feminine clothing then hiding behind the child saying he wanted it. Some discipline! Seems that the mothers in these instances are empowered about feminizing and emasculating males. Possibly lacked adult male supervision as children themselves.

"I don't want my boy to want a boy costume." Why? Because you find the idea of your son having a healthy sense of his identity offensive? If kids started thinking they were made of glass and were afraid of being shattered, would leftists start an acceptance movement for that as well? Never mind, I think we all know the answer.

My eight-year-old daughter decided to be Elvis this year.

At least she went as the gaudy Vegas singer Elvis.

I definitely would have had a problem if she wanted to be the fat, naked, full of quaaludes Elvis, sleeping on the toilet.

"I don't want my boy to want a boy costume."

It's all about her. Everything is politics to these people, EVERYTHING. They happily sacrifice their kids, and YOURS, to further the leftist agenda.

That was a wise decision because a female fairy with a shlong hanging out from under her short skirt would look silly.

The sad thing is that in a more normal era, men or boys sometimes DID dress up as girls for costume parties, just for kicks. It never would have occurred to them that that was a gay thing to do. In fact, the word “gay” was unknown.

We used to stage plays at my prep school back in the 50s. I don’t remember the name of the play, but I remember I played a bit part in one of them as an old, grandmotherly Czechoslavakian peasant woman waiting on a railroad platform. And we all thought it was funny to do something like that.

Not now. It seems like everything has been poisoned.

I don’t know ... The secone funniest costume I ever saw we’re the group of guys in highschool who didn’t shave for a week and wore girls’ field hockey uniforms.

The funniest were the group of guys who, same year, wore all white costumes (including bathing caps) with lengths of string attached to their backsides with their white sweatshirts emblazoned with “Fallopian Swim Team”

And so it begins.....

Soon, just as they do in Sweden, our schools will force boys to come into school dressed as girls so as to break down gender boundaries. Absolutely sick, disgusting and a form of child abuse.

BOYS ARE BOYS! GIRLS ARE GIRLS! How insane can liberals get?

A good liberal .... queer the kid up early. Maybe a few of your Huffpo friends can take advantage of him in his early years to get him off in the right manner. Out to be flaming by the time he reaches middle school.

These people are ruining their children.....they deny Truth and biology and are training their children to live in a fantasy world.

Artificial construct-—you can condition children to think anything-—like the little boys in harems dressed like girls in Afghanistan. They learn to hate women—women’s bodies are “filthy” since the Koran teaches that. The men use boys and other men for recreation and give the boys special attention and gifts and those little boys are so proud and their parents brag—just like this “mother”.

Even our troops are forced to “think” sodomy is normal and not puke when the men make passes at them and smacking sounds in ME countries.

Our Sodomite-in-Chief wants our military to be sodomites like the Knights Templars and Samurai and SA Brownshirts. All you have to do is remove Christian Ethics—all morality like the Bohemia Grove Elites who have their homosexual orgies with KKK costumes and owls watching as the sacrifice little boys.

Ah-—always about little boys....like in the Franklin Cover-up. The little secret that is NOT so secret in the Homosexual movement. It is all about sexualizing the little children to corrupt them and so they can be their recreation. That is why Jerry Brown who probably is a homosexual, wants little boys in Kindergarten to learn about anal sex.

Behaviors are learned and habituated. Even Aristotle knew that in his homosexual Greece where boys were used......just like John Maynard Keynes did. Homosexuality is immaturity (narcissism) so it has to include the kids.

It is not genetic—it is learned by the environment—like this woman is forcing on her child. Confusing children on purpose is evil.

It is all worldview-—what little children are made to believe is “normal”. This woman has been lying to her son since he was born——and forcing him to hate his male body and mock God and his Design. She refuses the Truth and lies to him.

She is a Satanist/Marxist/atheist-—take your pick. She is mentally ill and hateful. She should be locked up for ruining a child’s perception of the world so he will never be normal......but then-—leftists want all evil normalized to destroy the family and long term relationships. State can take control.

Marx obliterates all biological connections—no mothers and fathers—no male or female-—they are interchangeable—radical egalitarianism-—State is parent and no religion—the State is God.

The Leftists need to destroy logic in children so they can teach their Big Lies—like Wundt stated-—control the education and you can make anyone think Snow is Black. This woman obviously went to public schools.

I was helping my wife handing out candy on Halloween. I didn’t see any boys dressed as girls. Most of the kids wore sex-appropriate costumes. A couple of the little boys showed up as little commandos wearing camo. There obviously is some masculine influence in their lives.

If these boys someday murder their mothers, I’d vote for acquittal. Shame on these monster moms who hate what their sons are.

I’m a Boy - The Who

One girl was called Jean Marie
Another little girl was called Felicity
Another little girl was Sally Joy
The other was me, and I’m a boy

My name is Bill and I’m a headcase
They practice making up on my face
Yeah, I feel lucky if I get trousers to wear
Spend ages taking hairpins from my hair

Chorus 1
I’m a boy, I’m a boy
But my ma won’t admit it
I’m a boy, I’m a boy
But if I say I am I get it

Put your frock on Jean Marie
Plait your hair Felicity
Paint your nails, little Sally Joy
Put this wig on, little boy

Chorus 1

I wanna play cricket on the green
Ride my bike across the stream
Cut myself and see my blood
I wanna come home all covered in mud

Chorus 2
I’m a boy, I’m a boy
But my ma won’t admit it
I’m a boy, I’m a boy, I’m a boy
I’m a boy, I’m a boy, I’m a boy, I’m a boy
I’m a boy, I’m a boy, I’m__ a__ boy__

Minnie Mouse last year.


A fairy this year.

It must be a lot easier to allow a preschooler to decide how to shape his life than it is to actually parent your own child. Unfortunately, this mother doesn't realize that parenting is not about finding the easiest shortcuts; it's about finding the best options for the children in your care.

Instead of allowing someone with only a few years of experience and no perspective to raise himself, this mother should try attentive parenting, which does work. The first time one of my kids decided to be a dog longer than the normal playtime, in a manner that interfered with the next family activity, I put a decisive end to the game, and my child cooperated completely and voluntarily. It became "ice cream time" for the other kids, but dogs don't eat ice cream, they get a bowl of water. Doggie time died immediately.

If one of my boys had wanted to wear a dress, I would have dropped whatever else was planned to lead the kids on an expedition following the creak to look at salamanders, tadpoles, and bugs (we did that often), or to climb one of our trees, or to make bread by hand (too messy for frills), or something, anything where a dress would NOT have been appropriate or even practical to join in. I don't think that would stifle whatever it is that makes kids gay, but cross dressing would be no fun at all if it got in the way of playtime. I imagine after freely choosing a couple times not to engage in that behavior, a boy would decide that wearing dresses did not make life more fun or draw more attention. Also, I normally do a lot with my kids, so they would not have decided that threatening to dress up was a way to get my attention, it would only determine the type of attention they would get, and that in a non-obvious manner where they would not realize I had changed my behavior in response to theirs.

Someone needs to tell Kelly that as a parent, she has a duty to her child to develop his personality. That is where Dads come in - to teach their sons to be men. Moms teach their daughters to be women. Psychologically compromised child bearers teach their offspring to be fairies on Halloween.

It would be easy to believe if it were Sharon Osbourne but a director for a major media syndicate?! Have the bleeding heart liberals gone too far left with PC to make themselves out to be tolerant of lifestyle choices and forgotten common sense and morals? Obviously. I think they do it because they think it makes them appear sensitive and caring because they need(so badly) to be a part if the “In” group and feel “accepted”.

Well Ms. Byrom homosexual men are glad you are converting Twirl into one of them so they wont have to. Put him in Boy Scouts in a den with a gay scout master, sign him up as a member of NAMBLA, teach him how to cross dress and make him wear pink all the time to attract gays like flies and that should do it. By the way you’re brilliant. Think of all the time and money you won’t have to spend on any grandchildren now. You did forget one thing though; life insurance just in case he contracts HIV and jail money for those “foot tapping” bothersome male prostitution charges. Oh and money for transgender surgery. Oh but wait you got your Messiah to make us pay for that. Sorry.

Oh...I almost forgot. You’re and idiot and a disgrace to the human race. What the he’ll is wrong with you?!!
