Video of Michele Bachmann trying to get her photo op in with my 8 year old son. It’s hard to hear but he leans in and tells her that his mom is gay and she doesn’t need fixing. GO ELIJAH! Love that look of shock she gets.
We were there for an Occupy Myrtle Beach event to mic check Michele Bachmann on another issue. The lgbt issue came up separately. #Occupymb
I came across this video, and thought it was really sweet. It is the third video I have watched this week that involves children of gay/lesbian people, and it has made me think more about the subject. I am pro same-sex marriage, and am glad to live in a state where it is legal. The little boy in the video tells Michelle Bachmann that his mom is gay, but doesn’t need fixing. Bachmann is outspoken about her opposition to same-sex marriages, and it taken back by the boy’s words. People who are against homosexuality claim it is against God’s, but since the US separates church and state that can’t be it. Others claim it is not found in nature, but in actuality it is found more often than not. Some people say ok to two people of the same sex having a relationship, but don’t want them to raise children. They believe it isn’t good for the kids. The other two videos were about the same thing. First a gay man’s adoptive sons were taken away because of his homosexuality. When the kids were asked if they knew and what they thought, they answered yes and it doesn’t matter. To them he is just the man that loves them and gave them a good home. The second was of a young man speaking at a public forum about his lesbian mothers. His life at home was no different than any other kid’s. I don’t think having two parents of the same sex has anything with what makes a family. A family is made up of people who love and care about you, and it doesn’t matter what their sexual orientation is.
