But let’s say your eleven year-old has broken her leg rather badly and needs to be in the hospital a few days, which would you prefer: a nurse who’s proud of her lesbianism, who has rainbow identifiers on her work clothing, or a nurse who does not?
I would like to suggest that parents think long and hard about this. If you want your children to admire people who proclaim a homosexual lifestyle, their involvement with your child during a hospital stay is sure to be an influence. And let me be clear that folks involved in these behaviors can be certainly competent workers but they are tacking on to their workplace identity one that is highly offensive to many people and can be erroneously influential to children who won’t, or shouldn’t, see the whole picture of how this behavior really manifests itself.” —
I seem to be seeing an increasing amount of this bullshit lately. It seems that these people have sort of given up on scaremongering about child molestation, and now what they are deeply concerned about is simply that their children might see that gay people exist.
Because, you know, if children see that gay people exist, that they are kind and normal people, and that they are, well, just regular people, then those children might not be able to absorb enough irrational hatred for gay people from the indoctrination their parents are providing.
