I never would have discussed that with my mother....cold chills are running down my spine just thinking of that that. Ick.
Yet, I knew I wanted to be the kind of mother/parent that my kids could come to....and I am. Nothing is too taboo to talk about in our family.
I'm proud of that.
So when I got/get some flack from a commentor(s), I'm never really surprised but I'm sometimes a bit confused.
He(a commentor) wrote what a bad influence I am for my deviant daughter(eye roll). Now here's where my confusion comes in....my blog this last year or so has pretty graphically described my sex life with my Husband and our other sexual kinks. This religious nut didn't seem to mind those posts. But write about how I'm proud of my bisexual daughter and now I'm a heathen for christs sake. Talk about a hypocrite.
As per required of every religious zealot, he took it further saying there is nothing stopping people(like her) from having sex with kids and/or animals, etc.... This mainstay of their argument is always brought up as a red herring, to ignore the real truth. They are bigots...and use their religion to hide behind their bigotry.
All this is done to hide the fact that they are openly discriminating against a group of people based on their sexual orientation....and nothing else. Perhaps out of fear? I don't know.
I'd have a little more respect for these people if they were just honest in their discrimination.
Any religion that decries against it...should be brought under severe scrutiny. As I've told my daughter, any religion that tells you that loving another person is wrong...you should be suscipious of their motivations. Loving someone is never wrong.
It's just that simple.
