Gurl, you've done it now!
AHhhhh!!! She just crossed a line!
While insulting her mother's archnemesis for listening to his wife and children when making a decision to support equality, she casually suggests that Glee is ruining America's teenagers. Here is part of her brilliant blog entry:
"While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads. In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage. Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview.
In this situation, it was the other way around. I guess we can be glad that Malia and Sasha aren’t younger, or perhaps today’s press conference might have been about appointing Dora the Explorer as Attorney General because of her success in stopping Swiper the Fox.
Sometimes dads should lead their family in the right ways of thinking. In this case, it would’ve been nice if the President would’ve been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee."
Let's point out several things. When referencing "thousands of years of thinking about marriage," we hope she realizes that marriage originated as a social construct that allowed family patriarchs to facilitate the transfer of property. Thousands of years ago, said property included daughters and they usually had no say in the matter before being handed over to a complete stranger to become his loving wife.
Why did we change that again? Oh yeah, it sucked!
Much like slavery and women not being able to vote, two loving homosexual adults not being able to enjoy the rights and benefits that two heterosexual adults enjoy as a married couple also sucks.
Bristol also claims Obama is not "an actual leader" because he listens to different viewpoints other than his own when considering his stance on a civil rights issue that affects millions Americans. We hate to break it to America's sweetheart, but that's exactly what a good leader does. In fact, our entire government is set up to avoid one person shaping our thoughts!
Last, but not least! The only crime Glee is guilty of is introducing strong homosexual characters to audiences that may be sheltered from such diversity. Based off of her writing, it sounds like Bristol should watch more of the hit show so she can learn a thing or two about acceptance!
