    owl_bundy saidnot to be a dick. i'ma be real for a second. why are they making their lives everybody's business? they claim that they're doing it for us gay people and combating homophobia BUT how??? to me, they come off as a bunch of attention seekers.


    Well kinda. It is expected that everything you post online will become public. Especially if race and sexuality play a part. I think they are being bad parents because of the fact that they involved their daughters in all this shitstorm.

    Gay or straight, people put themselves out their online all the time. Try getting on Facebook without seeing your friends posting pictures of their kids.

    Who knows if they're trying to push the gay agenda, or if they purposely put their daughters in the media's way, but the only thing we truly know is that it's two guys caring for their kids and decided to post it online. They're simply fighting the backlash.

    As far as the bullying goes... ya, it could happen, but by the looks of it I don't really see those kids having to go through any type of public school if they're going to be treated that way. The parents seem caring so I'm sure they'll take care of their babies icon_smile.gif

    My optomistic view anyhow. ;-)

    The fact is, you cannot right a wrong without having an open and honest conversation about it.

    They're friends of ours on FaceBook.

    What they're doing shows people diversity, and I found nothing wrong with it. My straight friends, and I have many on Facebook, are constantly doing this with their families. Not one of them has ever mentioned having a problem with those two men and their kids. In fact, so far they've been enthusiastic and happy about it.

    As far as bullying in school goes, do you think their classmates wouldn't know they have two dads if the dads were on the down low?

    Stop, just stop.
    They're showing that their family is just as happy as any other family. What is wrong with that? How are they being attention seekers?
    They are not "pushing their little personal agendas for 15 minutes of fame". icon_rolleyes.gif

    owl_bundy saidnot to be a dick. i'ma be real for a second. why are they making their lives everybody's business? an instagram account for what? why are they posting themselves doing their children's hair for on the internet for the world to see? do they ever think about what their kids might have to deal with in school because of the attention that they're giving them by making them "internet celebs"? they claim that they're doing it for us gay people and combating homophobia BUT how??? to me, they come off as a bunch of attention seekers gay or straight.

    i think it's a bit fucked up that people are pushing their little persona agendas such as 15 minutes of fame and using serious shit like the gay rights movement like that. it discredits the whole gay rights movement in a sense. the only good thing that i see is that people get so used to these guys that attention whore themselves like this where being a gay dad or coming out as gay isn't a big deal anymore. it would be really nice to not have to simply date guys or be gay openly without having to come out because people wouldn't give a fuck.

    totally agree.

    why are they so desperate to have these videos up on youtube and instagram and needing so much attention?

    seems to me they use their kids as a platform to make videos to call attention to themselves....and then make more videos to address the "haters".... they wanna be "internet famous" and this is how they do it.... be posting vids that'll get attention, both negative and positive attention.

    I feel like, it's up to them if they want to put their business out there but they are kinda baiting themselves IMO. I also feel like it shouldn't matter if they're gay parents/ straight parents as long as they are good parents. There will always be some negative as there are positive things that people will say as long as you're not being physically hurt, or being threatened, it's best to just learn to filter out negatives my 2ยข.

    People all over the internet try to promote themselves. Whether they have a talent or a story, this is the "Me" generation and people want to be heard and seen. What bothers me most are the one's who get all hot and bothered at others for "being heard"
    Seriously, you can have yourself a field day with that. This is just a family with a story that's intended to inspire gay men. Whether or not they're attention seeking me monsters is besides the point, worrying about that aspect will only keep them in your mouth, hence their "success"

    I just wanna take this moment to say I bought popcorn today at a truck stop and started watching people that were being lame..


    It was all inspired by threads like this.

    Thank you RJ! Especially Xavier for consistently posting the idea.

    Anyway, this is good, a gay couple moved on my street and everyone thought they were aliens >.>
