#114 On the contrary, I think you're agreeing on the key point: her belief that her daughter has a choice to be either gay or straight...

Sorry, I missed this earlier. Actually I don't care if it's a choice, genetics, or a combination of both. It's not my life. One life to live. So long as your not injuring another, do what makes you happy without justification to others.

Worse, she is doing her damnedest to influence her daughter in a way that she believes might change her current "straightness"

Unless you have read a supplemental article by her, I read nothing in this article that would substanciate your rhetoric.

The only example I read was "When my daughter plays house with her stuffed koala bears as the mom and dad, we gently remind her that they could be a dad and dad."

To me that's no more than telling a little girl playing housewife that she could also be a doctor or artist, whatever. In other words, you are not restricted to gender rules defined by others. Present to her open doors in life, not closed. Hardly the same as shaming an individual, or telling them they are perverted, abominations that will be torture eternally in hell unless they change who they feel they are.

It's more akin to a father trying to get his son to play football to "toughen" him up. If his son is gay, football ain't gonna change it. Same thing here, if their daughter is straight, their gentle reminders won't change it.

Most important part, support the kid either way. Though Sadly Kohn's headline does garner a larger audience.
