theonewhoknocks saidI don't get it. Most anti-gays are anti-gay because they think it's a choice and unnatural. How can a 4 year old even know he's gay, and if so, why would a mother blame him??
It would seem to me this woman is just plain evil.
Add to that the fact that there are so many organizations in America that seek to vilify homosexuals and you have a very toxic situation. The mere suggestion of a gay stereotype in a child will set these people off. It's not about logic, it's all about hate.
What many people don't realize is that the battle for issues such as marriage equality, gay parenting and ENDA have a much greater importance than the underlying issue. Each of these are a stepping stone to legitimizing the LGBT community.
In the short term violence will increase as the anti-gay organizations see their slow demise.
In the long term we will see a lot more acceptance from people who in the past would have fallen prey to the very thought process that created this situation for this poor young boy.
