Even if it were true that children with homosexual parents were somehow “more troubled”, as fundamentalists and traditionalist shitheels like to claim — and most studies indicate there’s no correlation, but even if it were true — isn’t it far more likely that it’s the fundamentalists’ and traditionalist shitheels’ attitudes toward homosexuality creating social pressures and a culture of homophobic hatred that would be the primary cause of the problems?
It’s like if I constantly told some little kid, “you are WRONG for wearing that red shirt. I hate your red shirt. Did your mom buy you that red shirt? Then your mom is WRONG. You’re WRONG. WRONG WRONG WRONG!” and I led a ceaseless campaign to get other people to subscribe to my perspective. And then one day the kid breaks down and cries, and I say, “hah! Look at THAT! The kid in the red shirt is crying. This just proves my point: Kids shouldn’t wear red shirts, because kids in red shirts are more likely to have emotional issues.”— EntertheJabberwock (via theladysunami)
