Awesome post........I wish I had come across in the same manner:-)<quoted text>
Yes, you're right. It's ALL about YOU! The gay kids in the class don't matter to you. The kids with gay parents don't matter to you. The kids who love their gay aunt or uncle don't matter to you. All you care about is that you get to tell your kids who's good and who's bad. And the schools better not provide an actual information that the children could use to make up their own minds.
Really, I am constantly amazed by how badly parents underestimate children's ability to comprehend and assess. When a parent says they need to protect their child's innocense, they usually mean that they--as parents--can't deal with it. But the fact is that it's very simple and the child can deal with it better than the parents.
Happy New Year to you and yours.....may it be bright and prosperous:-)
