Good question: Why is it more hateful and abusive to try to convert a gay to straight than to raise a child in ignorance of their gender?
When I was a child, we were called bullies if we picked on other children with terms “thing” or “it” when they had less developed/obvious gender identities (the SNL Pat). Now, it is not bullying but progressive parenting.
If you don’t know the gender of your child (or think it’s a preference) you should not have any because you are simply not qualified to be a parent.
Their are biological inconsistencies which does require more compassion, but that is an exception. People remain people (monsters are not about physicality.)
I think those parents are monsters.
“3. Don’t teach stereotypes.”
What would liberals do without their stereotypes. Without them, Obama wouldn’t be president.
I was going to say exactly that. I wonder what these mulitculti parents say about Conservatives, or religious people regardless of who their God is, or Gods are, or what did they say about GWB, McCain, Romney? It’s been my experience that ALL human beings ARE treated as equals by the multiculti Left.
They just don’t consider anyone who disagrees with them as BEING human!
And this is the dumbest thing to be called child rearing I ever heard. What next, vegan parents who all move to a climate where vegetables grow year round, and they don’t ‘teach’ them to prepare food, or gather it for the child? The kids go from breast feeding to hunter gatherers?
Remember when Bob Dole said we needed to build massive orphanages, so kids would get a chance to decent childhoods? I’m pretty sure THIS article is a prime example of the kinds of parents he was wanting to get kids from!
Legalize human farming. Sure, it’s hard to compete with free, but surely professionals can do a better job of raising children than amateurs, right? Economics tells us that there will always be niches where more expensive products thrive over cheaper products. In terms of human labor, McDonalds may be happy with the unwashed youth at minimum wage but more discerning employers already prefer the ivy league educated and even contribute financially to that education. Professionally raised and educated workers are the next logical step. You don’t even need indentured servitude.. if a professional can’t endear a child to its financial benefactor and future employer then what good are they?
Other than Brave New World, I’m struggling to think of what science fiction has touched on this concept.
huh? What, if anything, sent you down that path, or was it not based on what I said?
I’m more advocating the kinds of orphanages there were around when I was growing up. They were mostly run by the different church denominations, funded with church money. And the idea that kids from such homes could be considered as human ‘farming’ is abhorrent at a minimum.
As I recall, the ‘dig’ at Dole was that he wanted these ‘kinds’ of kids ‘ ‘institutionalized’ because that’s how they were going to end up anyway. Well, I don’t buy that.
The other dig was that children in the 20th Century should expect to be raised better than Little Orphan Annie at Miss Hannigan’s. That as well is a big bunch of handwringer parc!
In high school we went to school with a number of guys and girls who lived at the Methodist Home in Raleigh. Many of them had family, but none who could or would take them in. A few were honest to pete orphans. There were no differences among those folks, and kids from ‘regular’ homes, as far as being non-drinkers, drinkers, straight, druggys, ig-mos, brains, jocks or nerds. Over the years we encountered some of those people, I even ran into one guy in San Diego in the Navy.
Their lives were as diverse both for good or bad as anyone we knew who grew up with parents or families. Some of them went to college, one is a retired judge. Some of them dropped out like I did, quite a few joined the military. One guy and girl from there dated in HS, moved away from here after HS, moved back, got married and are STILL married after 30+ years.
In short, looking at those kids who I knew and still see periodically and those we know of, their lives don’t seem to have been affected in a negative way by being raised for part of, or all of, their lives in an ‘orphanage’. My brother has a customer, an Ophthalmologist, who grew up at the Catholic Orphanage in Raleigh. They went to Catholic Grade school together and report these same CRAZY scenarios I have here, just life, moving on some people prospering, others not, life, marriage, kids, divorces, jail and at our ages now, starting to some deaths too.
But the flip side of that ‘orphanage’ life is people raising children in homes where the parents child rearing is in question, like these nuts in the UK or in homes there or here where drugs, alcohol, abuse, and who knows what else is happening. Homes that children should be pulled away from for their own good.
And IMO, this story and the parents denial of any difference in how boys get raised over how girls get raised is not just questionable parenting, it’s a HARMFUL lack of parenting. Better still, IMO and that of most psychologists, boys and girls SHOULD be raised differently. And as much as the Left wants us to have these neutral sex roles in life, that goes against nature itself at the very root of who human beings are. Or what animals are for that matter! And the Left is well known for equating humans to being ‘just’ the smartest animal on the planet.
Sometimes they won’t acknowledge that distinction even.
I doubt we’ll ever see any kind of intelligent movement backwards, toward some system of decent group homes for needy children. It won’t happen because too many people are all about ME, ME, ME. It won’t happen because of the lack of morality we have now. There will be no group home system come about in a country where the majority sees unborn children as nuisance ‘material’ to be aborted. Nor in a country where guns are seen as the problem, but people walking the thin line between sane and insane shouldn’t be locked up because they have rights. But then the gun manufacturers are guilty of murder in the press, but the crazy guy who pulled the trigger is to be pitied for his disease.
We’re probably too, too far gone for anyone to stand up for children being raised in homes like this. And I do remember that it was the UK in the story, but you can rest assured it’s happening here too. There’s not an idea coming out of Europe too kooky for American Leftys to shy away from it.
The great thing about the “workhouse” of the bygone era was that government wasn’t involved. Children were accepted by virtue of there being productive work they could do in those days.
Forget it, he’s rolli — er, trolling.
