    "'I really feel bad for the kids who have two parents of the same gender. Even though some kids think it's fine, they have no idea what kind of wonderful experiences they miss out on. I don't want more kids to get confused about what's right and okay. I really don't want to grow up in a world where marriage isn't such a special thing anymore. People have the choice to be gay, but I don't want to be affected by their choice. People say that they were born that way, but I've met really nice adults who did change."'

    Sarah, who says she is 'home-schooled'"...


    that explains it

    skykey saidis this really any different than the child asking michele bachmann why can't his lesbian parents get married? I think this whole debate is silly. or the little gril arguing about gender-based toys.


    This.

    Both cases of stupid parents holding up their kids as political props.

    No matter what argument you make in politics, it's always "for the children".

    Using your children to promote any political agenda on either side is just fucking cowardly. Stand up for your own principles and let your children decide their own.

    Apparently we're not the only ones with an agenda.

    Enjoyed this comment:

    "Clearly her birthday diminishes my birthday in the same way that gay marriage diminishes straight marriage. I don't want to grow up in a world where birthdays aren't such a special thing anymore. Please vote 'no' on birthdays for Sarah."

    I often wonder how my kids will handle this issue when they are old enough to understand. Right now they assume that we are married because we had a ceremony, wear rings and celebrate an anniversary (10th one from our ceremony is coming up on March 22nd).

    This. She probably doesn't support the theory of evolution either.

    I'm always dismayed that human rights are considered a political issue.

    I'm always dismayed that promoting human rights is, to some (right here on RJ no less), the same as demanding the removal of them.

    So sorry that little princess had her birthday "ruined" by the prospect of civil rights for all. I hope she's able to put her life together, somehow, and move on. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Wrong. This does not explain it. I've considered home-schooling my future children, at least through middle school, simply because the quality of education in some public schools is low and in decline.

    My best friends home-school their children and they are far from being bigots. They are well-traveled, well-read, enlightened individuals. Their 8-year-old is the most knowledgeable boy I've ever met.

    The prejudice against home-schooling is, like all other prejudices, vacuous.

    "It's my birthday" sounds about as strong as all of the other arguments against it.

    THIS... I absolutely agree. I find this manipulation by the parents and very disturbing. Also pretty sad.
