Should Our Daughters Come to Our (Gay) Wedding? (NYT alert)
New York Times ^ | November 5, 2013 | MARC PEYSER

Posted on 11/07/2013 1:55:05 PM PST by reaganaut1

One morning when I was making breakfast before school, my second-grade daughter, fresh off her school’s diversity unit on homosexuality, decided it was time I had a lesson in gay rights. First, she said, you should never use the word “gay” in a negative way, as in “That’s so gay!” Very interesting, I said, plotting to push a little deeper into this intriguing topic. So what is “gay,” I asked? Gay is when two boys like each other, and lesbian is when two girls like each other, she explained. Did she know anyone who was gay or lesbian, I asked? “I’m pretty sure I’m a lesbian because all my friends are girls,” she declared. Did she know anyone else? “Well, Larry only plays with boys, so he must be gay.” Anyone else? Nope.

Now I happened to know that she was acquainted with at least two other gay people, so I reminded her about them. “How about me and your Dad?” I asked. She thought a minute, then shrugged her shoulders. “Oh, yeah.”

Of course, our girls (now ages 8 and 10), know we’re gay. We’ve certainly never hidden it from them, as if two guys out for a walk with a BabyBjörn and a MacLaren would be inconspicuous, even in the liberal cocoon of Upper West Side Manhattan. It’s just that while “gay” in school might be singled out for special consideration, at home we’re just our girls’ dads. No adjectives need apply.

Yet in the last month or so I’ve been wondering if our daughters’ blissful nonchalance about our sexuality was in danger of dissolving.

No, when girls in elementary school prefer to play with other girls, it does not mean they are lesbians. It's not right to confuse children, but large sections of our society seem bent on doing so.

“It’s not right to confuse children”

this is called recruitment.

That’s exactly why they are doing it. Star them off young thinking they are queer.

Yay for me! I read this article and I didn’t even puke.

But I found what I was looking for:

“If we aren’t married now, does that mean we even are a family?”

This and other remarks tell us what we know (and they know it too). They are not a family (never will be). They are not normal and they are indeed lying to themselvs and that poor child that lives with them.

Baseball was more interesting than girls to me until I reached about age 14 or 15. For that matter, so was reading, history and even math.

I suspect that if you substitute "hunting" or "track" or "football" or whatever passion a boy has, the foregoing statement would ring true for roughly 97% or us.

The fact is, they already think we are married, just like any mom and dad, or mom and mom . . .

We're obviously supposed to giggle here. But the fact is that these men are raising girls who have no understanding what a "dad" or a "mom" really is. That is not cute; it is evil.

I know people who call themselves gay— some who call themselves bi- I will Never attend a same sex ceremony— WHY celebrate fornication and sin? IF children 8 or ten yrs old play with each other—except sexual fantasy playing it seems normal unless it is obsessive. when my five yr old granddaughter talks about her mommie and daddy having sex— I don’t think she knows exactly what she’s talking about but I do think she has been allowed to watch too many stupid -soft porn video like her idiot daddy likes to watch.She is entirely too young for that kind of game playing.

Well, sure, if you want your daughters to become promiscuous little sluts who would have sex with strangers; male, female, animal...all before they get their driver’s licenses, why sure, have them come to your “gay” wedding.

It’s not like they will turn out to be all screwed up or anything.

I am sympathetic with those Christians who throw up their hands and say Just let this society go to Hell.

Unfortunately, there is nowhere else to live. We either keep fighting the culture war, or hasten the day when people like this start killing us.

Yes, about 1/4 inch under the surface, this “nice” gay guy is perfectly okay with the slaughter of Christians. Obama is. Sebelius is. Pelosi is.

The notion of “recruitment,” as in “They cannot reproduce, so they must recruit,” is nonsense.

The vast majority of the parents of homosexuals are heterosexuals. They produce homosexual children by being lousy parents.

“The vast majority of the parents of homosexuals are heterosexuals. They produce homosexual children by being lousy parents.”

Years ago my wife worked as a hairdresser with a couple of queer guys; they’d both been molested as kids. I agree that bad parenting is another source of the mental illness.

I was confused. Is it two women or two men? And it sounds like left wing drivel to say “me and Dad” if they are both female.

I hate it when the left changes the definition of words.

Well, one thing is for sure, whatever it is, whoever is involved, it's all about two men who will never get enough attention. Maybe they can have the girls throw flowers in their path as they walk up the aisle(recorded of course for U-tube, Facebook, et cetera.

Hi.

They will kill us and then blame it on us for making them so angry.

May I?

They will attempt to kill us and then blame it on us for making them so angry [if still alive].

There, reads better now.

Correct. But homo predators look for homes where the father is absent and the mother is weak. That’s a target rich environment for them. Then they prey on those boys and recruit them

Look at what Jerry Sandusky did with his Second Mile charity.

True story:

Years ago I used to refill my printer cartridges with ink using what amounted to a sawed-off hypodermic needle. It wasn’t easy, and it demanded my full attention. One day while I was refilling my black cartridge, my then eight-year old son came out of his room and asked, “Mom, what is a homosexual?” We homeschooled, so where he even heard this term is to this day a complete mystery to me. Without looking up from my task I intoned in as unconcerned and even uninterested a voice as a could, “A homosexual is a man who sticks his winky up the poop-hole of another man.” And then I pressed my lips together as tightly as possible so as not to crack up at the look of disgust on my son’s face. I never did express an opinion of said behavior; I didn’t have to. And I don’t think my son has changed his mind about it, either.
I think children know what is yucky from birth, and have to be carefully taught to accept that which is, minimally, not blueprint human behavior.

You only have the first half. Chicken Hawks look for young ones that need a "friend" and it's usually broken teens they search out. They recruit them by giving sympathy etc. It works.

Why do you think the nomis fought so hard for the right to sleep in tents with straight children? Recruitment and conversion to perversion.

If there were any room for an honest discussion on this topic with liberals, we could be debating the fact that two homosexual men are NOT the “parents” of these two children. Homosexuals are incapable of propagating the species, period. There was a third party involved with both of these children at the very least. Allowing this to occur within a society is sick and destructive.

What the kids should be taught is the male rear end is not a vagina. And having to daddy’s sucks for these kids growing up.

Absolutely true. Adults homosexuals prey on teensl

What’s bogus is the “They can’t reproduce, so they must recruit” part, as though homosexuals were another species, and weren’t themselves the children of heterosexual human parents.

That slogan is a sleazy way of absolving parents of all responsibility. The fact is that it’s ignorant, negligent, narcissistic heterosexual parents who wound their children and cause same-sex attraction.

You cannot deny recruitment is a HUGE part of the homosexual "culture" and their agenda. They are pressing in the media and schools for full normalization and desensitization as part of recruitment.

Of course I can’t deny it. I don’t deny it.

What I object to is that particular slogan: “they can’t reproduce, so they must recruit.” It’s a lie that many people tell themselves because it absolves them of all responsibility. Most of the SSA teens who ARE recruited would not have same-sex attraction if not for their narcissistic parents.

Homosexuals are wounded people—wounded by their parents above all.
