How To Explain Gay Marriage to Children?

If you are a parent and one day your six year old son asks you:  "When I grow up, should I marry a boy or should I marry a girl?"

I'd say "Listen here, kid, you are not going to marry a boy or a girl you are going to marry a man or a woman and until you are old enough to know the difference, you're not old enough to know if you're gay or not."

Then when they start to say how they are mature enough, I will shove a candy in their mouth and smile as they shut up and eat it.

I would explain to my son that when you're older you should marry a girl because God created us to be attracted to the opposite gender, and that it will always be the proper way. People might disagree with you, but you stay strong in the faith and stand up for what God believes in and that is gay marriage always will be wrong in the eyes of God. Don't let anyone tell you differently.

I assume you're one "Uneducated blinded by God" being.

You shouldn't tell your son what to do in his life and you definitely shouldn't make decisions for him.

I hope he doesn't shape up like you did.

Love knows no gender.

I assume you're one "Uneducated blinded by God" being.

Nope. I'm pretty well educated actually.

You shouldn't tell your son what to do in his life and you definitely shouldn't make decisions for him.

If I'm his parent, I can tell him what to do because I made him, and I want what's best for him in his life. Also I would have a lot more wisdom than my son does because I've experienced more things than he does. I'm not making decisions for him. It's up to him, but I'm teaching him the correct way based on what the Bible says.

I'm not going to answer this question to this debate I'm just going to point something out about you. I want everyone on CD to know whether they're for or against gays that you PhxDemocrat are a hypocrite. You make out your all peace, love and brown rice and that you're all about being nice to gays and yet you go and take pleasure in spouting all of these shorty stereotypes that I and another gay member of this site felt highly offended by. That really was out of line. It was unacceptable and homophobic behaviour.

who was offended???

Me and pirateelfdog.

First, using the term "retarded" is going to severely undermine any legitimacy you might hope to cultivate. It is an offensive term towards anyone who has family or friends with mental and physical disabilities.

Second, put a bunch of spaces between words to get around the 50 character limit. The extra spaces won't show up.

Oh boo hoo. If your shameful defense of perversion is so stinking normal, why does it bother you if somebody says it's not? People like you wont be happy even if they do get in the pants of every person on the planet who is the same gender as they are. You're miserable now and will always be miserable as long as you are a pervert. Being a pervert brings misery, that's the way it is. That's why sodomite perverts call themselves "Gay", lying to themselves trying to convince themselves to be happy about their shame.

If someone like you started song the homosexuality was ok he would be mad at you. No one cares about idiots like you who hate gays because we know you are wrong. People like Phx pretend to be friends of gays but still sound like you.

I would say to my kids that people choose what they want to do. I would bring them up to realise that being gay is no different to being straight, the only difference is that gay people prefer to be with the same sex. I don't see what the whole fuss is about to be honest. Straight couples get raunchy in the bedroom and gay couples do and I have no issue with that, but if kids are subjected to public sexual acts, whether gay or straight then it is an issue.

so why don't you find a nice bunch of homos and encourage your kids to go play with them and hang out with them so they can see how normal they are?

You are a homophobe...pretending to approve of them when the truth is you don't want them to teach your kids to be like them.

You're just another perverted homophobe who doesn't have the brains to call wrong wrong .

You have no idea about what you're talking about. Use facts please.

Children don't have the potential to be homosexual if they hang out with gay people, it just doesn't work like that. If a kid turns out to be homosexual it's because he is predestined to be homosexual because of his genes. Being around gay people may make this genetic disposition activate more quickly, however it should not 'make' the child homosexual.

Again, I am not a homophobe because of some bullshit that you make up. I couldn't care less if my children hung out with gay people because I know they wouldn't be gay unless they were predestined to be by a genetic disposition.

I have the brains to think things through. Rationality is the humans' most unprecedented function in the animal kingdom. Use it.

You do not fill there heads with that stuff (marriage, sexuality,hate, males loving males, males loving females, females loving females, transgenders) when parents teach there kids about this stuff they assume your correct when if your teaching them hate then there going to hate. If you teach them to love and accept everyone then they will love and accept everyone.

But if your not going to listen to me then tell them gay marriage is when 2 people of the same gender have intense feelings/ love each other and they get married...

Hey, little dude(duddette), sometimes people who love each other , get married, sometimes it looks really weird when it happens, but it is OK, there isn't actually anything wrong with it.

If there is nothing wrong with it, why do you have to say there is nothing wrong with it? There is nothing wrong with drinking a glass of pure water, and it would be kind of stupid for me to insist there it nothing wrong with it. When there is nothing wrong with something, you don't have to say there is nothing wrong with it. There's something wrong with you if you think there is nothing wrong with two men abusing their bodies with each other and calling it "love"

Probably because people like you think there is something wrong with it. (But that logic probably goes too far over your head for you to understand.)

It's easy to explain Sodomite or Woman/Woman sexual abuse relationships. To start with, marriage is the joining of a man and woman as one flesh. In reality, there is no such thing as homosexual "marriage". It's an impossibility with members of the same gender.

When it's time to explain things to a child, just tell them that homosexuals are perverts who don't know how to act with the opposite sex....they are messed up in their minds to they abuse their bodies to try to make themselves feel better. They are mentally/emotionally sick, and they are trying to spread their disease around so it's best to stay away from them until you are grown up enough to defend yourself from them. Also tell them that God loves them but hates their sin and is giving them time so they can repent and stop being perverts and live cleanly.

1 point

You don't. That is my opinion. I don't think it's really important enough to explain to anyone, let alone a child. I ask that you respect my opinion.

You shouldn't have to. Ruining A tradition of opposite sex marriage that has been going on for many years is just sick.

Im ok with change just not this one. Homosexuality is an awesome thing if your into something like that its just the tradition that has been ruined.

1 point

Why should a tradition be upheld if, in order to do so, you have to violate the legal structure of one's country?

KarishmaR(6) Disputed

Firstly it's 'you'r'e and not 'your'.

This itself shows how ignorant you are.

Anyway, the only tradition that has been broken is that of gay people coming out of the closet more than the people in the older days used to.

Years ago, gay people didn't have enough courage to come out. That thankfully, is not the scenario now.

They're open to embracing their sexuality now.

So people being gay has been going on since years.

Homosexuality' is not something one is "into".

It's NATURAL. It's not a choice.

And how does letting two members of the same sex ruin my marriage to my wife?

1 point

Mostly women marry men but sometimes it happens that a man and a man or a woman and a woman love each other very much and get married. but you don't have to do any of that. You can choose to be single or to marry whomever you love.

Simple.

2 points

That's a great way to deal with them. Short and simple.

I couldn't explain it the way you did.

1 point

Well, you should sit them down and explain them that it's not something one chooses. It's something you're born with. It's nothing one should be ashamed of cuz it's as natural as it can get. I'm sure they know how beautiful a feeling love is (If they don't, tell me about it) Anyone is free to love and marry anyone. Chances are they won't understand it all at once but as they grow up, they'll eventually understand.

1 point

I self identify as an idiot. I'm just born this way. I can't help it. Don't judge me.

I might buy it if I hadn't seen people "born alcoholics" who just somehow magically find a way to overcome the "way they were born".

I will tell them it's unnatural and destruction to mankind. I would use small words to mean the same thing if they are younger.

1 point

How is it either?

1 point

Well, for starters, it spread so much disease, that at one time they called AIDS the gay disease.

This is what I am going to tell my kids:

Marry who you want to marry. If you love them, they love you, and you both find each other attractive go for it. Gender should not matter. It's easier in our world to be straight, but if you realize that you are gay or bi, then I will support you the best way I can.

I will say marriage is a commitment between two adults who love each other. How is that so hard to do?

If you have a six year old asking a question like that, you have been a terrible parent.

The same way you explain a train wreck where all the cars derailed and skidded across the street and into buildings killing 300 passengers. You don't....

It's two people who love each other. We don't (most of us), explain what WE do in the bedroom in detail, why should we explain what THEY do? By the time they get to the "need to know" age, they'll know anyway! Also, you'll find, that most young people agree that it should be legal by the time they reach that age. Just about every "independent" poll shows this among college age people.

A homophobe is a person who is afraid to bend over and let homos take pleasure in abusing their body, yet is afraid to say it is wrong for them to do that to anybody including other homos. A person who is not afraid of homos and is not one of them will say it is always wrong to fornicate heterosexually, homosexually, or all by yourself, or in the pictures of your mind.

"Homophobe" is just about the stupidest word recently invented...obvious in meaning and obviously abused by homos. It's nothing but f phony word used to promote harassment against people who stand firm on the truth that their perversion is evil. Homos will usually want to attack and severly hurt you if you stand up to them fearlessly and tell them the truth about their perversion.

Don't worry man. The only 'homo' you'll ever meet will be the priest at your habitual church, and it's sure that you would suck his dick to make him forgive your sins. Make sure that he's really old, if you give him an orgasm, you can ever consider that as a miracle!

I suppose you think you are funny. You would either turn and walk away or you would be eating your teeth if you said that to my face.

Catholics are not Christians. Obviously you are just another brainwashed idiot who thinks a limited vocabulary with too much dirt to show any intelligence makes you somehow strong.

Whatever your problem is, whatever it is that makes you enjoy being so nasty, you need to get saved or you are going to burn in Hell throughout eternity as a sinner. God Himself paid for your sins when He came down from Heaven as the Son of God to die for you so He is just to pardon you if you believe on His resurrection. This is reality, not religion.

Why do people who support this kind of garbage have to talk so stinking dirty? When your children get AIDS, blame yourself.

I wonder how many of you homos and homophobic homo supporters have AIDS and/or hep C. Perverts get and pass diseases. Stop being perverts....the only thing children need to know about gay marriage is that it's not gay at all, it's miserable and prone to disease...it's perverted. Children can easily understand only a man and a woman can be married and when two men try to do it, they are doing wrong........ people who probably have diseases and it's best to stay away from them.

And why in the world do you perverts think it's so important to explain sodomite partnerships to children? Why don't you leave the children alone?
