I heard that the times were changing back in the 60s. Bob Dylan told me.

Just out of curiosity, how many of your kids would have known a difference between kinky boots performance and the Rockettes? More importantly, why do they know at a young age?

I know some Gheys, I'm friends with a few Gheys, however I don't think it's right, nor do I think it should be blasted all over the TV. Which brings me to a favorite Daniel Tosh quote
Quote:
“This is what I say to the most conservative person that’s so terrified of gay marriage becoming legal: Just because the state says it’s legal, it’s not like God’s gonna let them into heaven?! You can still sleep sound every night, knowing that goal line defense is up at the pearly gates going, “You’re not getting in here, *&^$#!”

I chuckled at this...

Quote:
I am not intolerant: but I do not want children exposed to perversion, and worse, I do not want children propagandized by television to think that sexual perversion is somehow a different kind of normal. (Nor do I myself want to see such things!) Homosexuals, transvestites, etc. should be equal before the law, and not discriminated against. But I am tired of being told that I must accept them as “normal.” By definition, they are not normal: if they were, they would constitute c. 90% of the population, not c. 10% or less. I am tired of seeing sacrileges against religion, and specifically Christianity, e.g. Christmas songs accompanying what might be called “air sodomy.”
So the definition of being "normal" in a society is based on what percentage of that society you are part of? White males should seek cover here in the US, our percentages are shrinking.

And then this....

Our kids ask questions...

"Dad, why is that man dressed like a woman" for example.

My wife and I choose to not keep them sheltered from reality and teach them that we are all individuals, not the same. They can decide on their own to make a conscience choice to accept it or reject it.

But above all that, we are teaching them that judging people is wrong.

That's an easy question to answer-

'It's a costume, like on halloween'

You don't need to go into details.

The interesting observation is that kids can see it's completely insane behavior and the adults are more concerned about "accepting" the insanity.

Even more concerning were the discussions last night as we spent Thanksgiving with 30+ family members. The thing on every TV channel and everyone's lips was about what kind of stuff they don't have that they can buy on Black Friday, rather than what they do have that they are thankful for. We are on a rapid descent as a civilization.

So then you didn't care? If you're teaching your kids not to judge, then judging those on thescreen would be hypocritical.

I understand that kids ask questions. Depending on age though, I'd see that as opportunity to explain our world to them. But young kids shouldn't know the difference.

I'm just curious if younger kids even know a difference without mom or dad complaining about it.

I agree about the shopping/materialism. Its crazy.

My 8 year old made a comment about it within the first minute without me saying anything. My response, I changed the channel and Macy's advertisers lost one more viewer.

I think it's important for people to be able to judge people especially kids. Kids need to know how to spot danger, and guess what, that requires someone to make a judgement. If the person looks shady, then they are shady until proven otherwise. If something doesn't look right, then it's not right until proven otherwise. See where I'm going with this. All of this is based off of what people look like and how they are acting.

Very true. Situational awareness is something everyone needs.

I think I agree.

Boys wearing girls cloths is just silly, unless more is meant by it.
