Apparently my family is afraid my son will be gay because he likes Mamma Mia. Seriously? First off, it’s a super great musical and that just means he has good taste. Second off, why does it even matter? If he likes football, awesome! I’ll have him on the best team in the area and support him all the way through college ball. If he likes musicals, great! He’ll be in drama club as long as he wants to be and we can go see plays on the weekends. If he likes men rather than women? Super awesome, because that means he likes what he likes and can be happy. I could never look my son in the eyes and say I disapprove of something he can’t even help. Nothing I do as a parent can make my son gay. Mamma Mia isn’t the only movie we watch around here anyway. We watch all sorts of age appropriate movies and TV shows, but mostly we read books because I don’t like TV. We lead a normal life. He has “male role models” and “female role models”, since they all say that is so important. I do the best I can for him and I will support him in whatever he wants to do or be in life. Musicals do not make you gay. Liking musicals simply means that you like musicals. What toddler doesn’t? They’re happy and have smiling faces and bright colors. What’s not to like?
I hate people.
Hate, hate, hate, double hate. LOATHE ENTIRELY.
