R: Actually, that’s exactly what I want my daughter to learn. We talk to her about the same-sex couples we know and explain that they love one another just like Mommy and Daddy do. If the schools reinforce that, so much the better.
And I wrote to him: Don’t be surprised if your daughter says she wants to marry her best girlfriend. you’ve given her license –and that leads to imagination –confusion–the idea that she can choose to be with either men or women. I wish I could talk with you in 20 years! or sooner.
I LOVED my girlfriends as a child –I liked (and envied) the pretty ones. I wanted to be pretty like they were. If I were popular with them, perhaps it meant I was LIKE them. I was jealous if my friend were also good friends with another girl –if she seemed to prefer her over me. And I observe this same phenomena in my CLC girls. If someone had read And Tango Makes Three to me in the 3rd grade, and suggested two girls could marry like mommy and daddy, I might’ve concluded that I was “different" and wanted to marry my best friend. But I never heard of homosexuality–and I always wanted to be Snow White to some Prince Charming some day. Thank God for fairy tales and that I knew I was the princess! I always had a crush on some guy or other.
So maybe a teacher would read me a book on bisexuality! Then I might say, "That’s what I am,” Because what the heck do kids know except what they are taught and what they experience!? They are by definition IMMATURE –this is NO time to suggest to them “You might be “different” –i.e. homosexual–or bisexual. Experiment and decide. It’s OK as long as you use protection. All ways of being sexual are equal.”
SPARE ME SUCH TEACHERS!!! and such parents raising my children’s friends! This is one reason why parents are home-schooling and choosing any schools but public. The more the responsible people hear about these abuses of parental trust in public ed, and the crazy liberal parents raising our children's classmates, the less likely they'll want to pass levies or entrust their kids to an institution that thinks its job is to erode faith and traditional morality in our kids.
