Ok, seriously?

Posted by on Thursday, 5 June, 2008

From the CNN story seen here: http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/06/05/seattle.kiss.ap/index.html?eref=rss_topstories
and undoubtedly all over the blogosphere as well..

Two lesbians at a Mariners baseball game kiss, and are asked to stop by an usher responding to a complaint from a near-by woman. The reasoning? She’d have to explain why two women are kissing to her kids -if they asked-.

Oh gods COME ON! If the BEST reason you have for complaining is based on the fact that you don’t want to explain it to your kids… perhaps you shouldn’t have had kids in the first place. You DO realize that part of being a parent is actually TEACHING your children the skills they need, right? I mean, you didn’t REALLY think you were off the hook because they go to school, did you?

Yes, sometimes, as a parent, you have to do things you may not like. SOMETIMES that even may include actually talking to your kids about LIFE. You do realize that just because you don’t agree with a particular lifestyle doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist, right? Gods forbid you see a goth kid walking down the street… how will you EVER explain that to your little darlings?

Seriously people. GROW UP. Accept responsibility for raising your children. Don’t expect an usher at a baseball game to be your ‘out’ from acting as a proper parent.

Perhaps our government is taking the wrong kids away from the wrong people. Let the polygamists have their children… take the kids away from the people who can’t be buggered to actually take part in raising their own!
