How to tell that your child is going Gay!

Postby Sugarcubes Forever » Fri Aug 12, 2005 8:57 am

Is your little boy going gay? Things to watch for to insure that Jr. doesn't go all femme.

Evidences of gender confusion or doubt in boys ages 5 to 11 may include:

1. A strong feeling that they are “different” from other boys.

2. A tendency to cry easily, be less athletic, and dislike the roughhousing that other boys enjoy.

3. A persistent preference to play female roles in make-believe play.

4. A strong preference to spend time in the company of girls and participate in their games and other pastimes.

5. A susceptibility to be bullied by other boys, who may tease them unmercifully and call them “*beep*,” “*beep*” and “*beep*.”

6. A tendency to walk, talk, dress and even “think” effeminately.

7. A repeatedly stated desire to be — or insistence that he is — a girl.

If your child is experiencing several signs of gender confusion, professional help is available. It’s best to seek that help before your child reaches puberty.

“By the time the adolescent hormones kick in during early adolescence, a full-blown gender identity crisis threatens to overwhelm the teenager,” warns psychologist Dr. James Dobson. To compound the problem, many of these teens experience “great waves of guilt accompanied by secret fears of divine retribution.”

If your child has already reached puberty, change is difficult, but it’s not too late.

Yes, they can. Fuck those assholes, if you'll pardon the unfortunate pun.

How to Prevent Homosexuality is an informative article, ha ha. Psychologist Robert Stoller said, "Masculinity is an achievement." In other words, "growing up straight isn't something that happens." That seems like an awfully odd position for them to take. Are they saying that we're all naturally born queer? Huh.

maybe the solution simply is to NOT LAY THE GUILT TRIP! Seriously the Bible says being gay is wrong in the same passages that say shaving is wrong and wearing blended fabrics are wrong...
fun fact-Dr James Dobson and "satanist" Boyd Rice (Hatesville,NON, other noisy stuff) are (or at least were) frequent dinner buddies

Wearing blended fabrics is wrong.

Right wingers like to boil everything down to questions of personal responsibility and character. It usually leads to some bizzare shit, though.

Seems like what they're saying is that people choose their sexual orientation. Only one choice is "correct". People who choose correctly are rewarded in heaven with 21 virgins.......

Oops, wrong religion.

Anyway, if everything comes down to CHOOSING properly, people who make the wrong choices can be shunned, chastised, damned, cursed to hell, etc etc. The converse of the pervert fag who chooses wrong is the blessed straight who is rewarded by Jesus. If people can choose to be gay, then denying the correct choice makes them even more insidious. It means they are INTENTIONALLY disrespecting the Right Wing God!!

They apply the same thing other issues. For example: If you're poor, you must have chosen to be poor....or you made choices which landed you in the poor house and being poor is your consequence for those bad choices.

Everything comes down to choice, because only then can someone be BLAMED for who they are. If people really are born gay, it becomes difficult to rationalize a quilt free way of treating them like shit.

The whole lifestyle choice thing is a laugh. I don't know about you dudes, but I didn't choose to be into the ladies. It's just how I roll. Huffing dong is not an option for me.

Sorry, just trying to talk to these morons in their own language.

You guys obviously aren't reading the articles: What Do We Know About Homosexuality?

2. Homosexuality is rarely “chosen.” It’s unfair to tell a homosexual individual that he or she chose that lifestyle to pursue sexual excitement or some other motive. After all, Dr. Dobson says, “who among us would knowingly choose a path that would result in alienation from family, rejection from friends, disdain from the heterosexual world, exposure to sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDS and tuberculosis, and even a shorter lifespan?”

Tuberculosis is an STD now? Huh.

No, I didn't read the articles, but we hear all too often the "choice" argument. I've always thought it was odd for many of the reasons Dobson lists himself.
