Gracie's parents must be so proud to have their little girl parroting their ignorance and fear. I'm sure they'll be just as proud in 5 or 10 years when she and her wife get married.

Uh...she'd be 16 or 21, respectively. Anyone marrying that young needs a good smack.

Using your child to make an unpopular political point, then claiming she's the victim of attacks on the Internet, is absolutely despicable! You put your child in the line of fire. You made her a target. And now you claim she is being harmed by such vicious slander? Actually, I agree. You, Homophobic Mom & Dad, have harmed your little girl. She should be placed with a family that actually has her best interests at heart.

Perhaps a loving same-sex set of parents will do the job you have so badly botched up?

Am I the only one who is sick of parents putting words into the mouths of their kids and whoring them out in public?

This is not the first time it's been done.

And what next? Should single parents have their kids taken away from them and placed in foster homes because they don't have both a mommy and a daddy?

I saw someone on some news program last night from a very poorly named organization - something like the American Freedom League (I don't remember the exact name) arguing against the freedom for gays in the US to get married. He said something about gay marriage being forced on everyone, but unless there is a movement to force me to get married to another man that I don't know about then being against gay marriage is just crazy.

Newsflash: Gay people already live together and many of them already have children. Most Americans believe gay people should be allowed to marry, but the more I hear about it the more I think marriage should be left to churches instead of the law. Civil unions for everyone in the eyes of the law. If a church doesn't want to perform a ceremony for a gay couple, they shouldn't be forced to, but if you want legal protections just hire a lawyer and sign a contract instead of getting a marriage certificate (yes, that goes for heterosexual couples too). It should be fairly boiler-plate.

I don't care if God does hate f homosexuals. We all have different ideas about "god" and we have separation of church and state. This nonsense needs to end.

Why is an 11 y/o even speaking at something like this? If those were her father's views then he should have spoken, but I guess bigotry sounds better when coming from a kid.
 
2013-03-27 07:55:56 AM
She was attacked "viscously?"

That leads to some nasty images in a story about homosexuals.

Happy Hours:

I never got this idea - basically everyone has civil unions but then you only get to say you're married if a church (presumably you mean all organized religious institutions) signs off on it. But them what - people get to walk around telling everyone from a different denomination or religion that they aren't really married because they weren't married in a Reformed Baptist Church of God Reformation of 1915 or whatever their flavor of religion is? Or if a church chooses to marry a gay couple should members of other churches be obliged to recognize that as a legitimate marriage?

20 years ago the best babysitter I ever had was Mary, and my daughter loved her and her assortment of girlfriends. My daughter and both of Mary's children are straight, healthy and very well adjusted.

Is she arguing against divorce,?  That's going to bust up waaay more families than gay marriage.  Or is one of her secretly gay parents going to leave if gay marriage is OK'd?

No, wait, she's making a pro-choice argument since all children must have two parents in order to be happy and successful, right?

smh

Because, when you're looking for advice on sex and happiness an 11 year old's advice is king.

....f*cking stupid.Who gives a sh*t what other people think? If you love someone, and you're attracted to them that's life. People who don't understand that can take a long walk off a short pier. What happens between consenting adults is their damn business. Not yours. Not mine.
 
2013-03-27 10:01:29 AM
In other news my 11 year old daughter cannot understand why some people care if gay people get married since "they are just normal people like everybody else".
 
2013-03-27 10:01:41 AM
When she is in her twenties she is probably going to look back at this and want to die from embarrassment for ever believing this way.

And then he has the chutzpah to complain about "colorful words" on the internet from "anonymous posters." Maybe if these posters had their kids doing the colorful wording, he'd be OK with it.

What a putz.

Oh look how adorable she is, and how can you possibly deny the simple wisdom of a child?

This tactic is tired. Advertisers use this strategy everyday to override rational thought and evoke an emotional one. It's cheap, manipulative, and an affront to well reasoned argumentation.

That all depends on how good of a job they do indoctrinating her for the next 10 years. So far so good I guess.

Even though I'm only 11 years old, I know that everyone deserves to have a mom and a dad," Grace said. "If you change the law to say two moms and two dads can get married, it would take away something very important for children like me across the state.

Yes of course you insufferable idiot, if the gays can get married they are going to use up every single marriage license which of course would prevent your friend Timmy from ever having a dad and a mom.

Where's the parent of this twat so I can smack them around some and remind them its not nice to stuff your impressionable children full of moron ideas.

Wow, I missed this part of the agenda. I didn't know that by supporting gay Marriage I was supporting children being taken from their parents. I love my daughter and my stepsons quite a bit, so this just won't work. Does anyone have the specifics on this? Do they take all of your kids, just one of your kids, or maybe take all BUT one of them? I was always under the impression that families would go on as before, and I am VERY concerned about this new twist. Thank God I had an 11-year old to show me the way.


I guess this affects single parents, too? Anyone know how THAT part is going to work? Will theytake those kids away, or force them to marry someone so that the kids have "a mom and a dad"? Or do they have the technology to reanimate dead bodies, and legislation outlawing divorce? Will they force people to get married if a woman becomes pregnant? This all seems very important... Maybe Grace knows.

I can't decide whether this is one of those situations where the messenger emphasizes the illogic of the message, or one of those situations where the messenger manages to cut through the bullfark and really demonstrate the childishness of the anti-marriage idiots out there.

"These attacks on Grace are an example of how we have already lost many of these freedoms. In fact, it's so bad, they aren't afraid to viscously attack an 11-year-old girl. Imagine what it will be like if gay marriage becomes legal in Minnesota."

Either that, or they are an example of people exercising their right to Free Speech? There is absolutely no reason to send threats and hate mail to an 11 year old girl, but that's not an example of freedoms being taken away...

And in answer to grace's question, it looks like the parent you don't need is your idiotic father. He's dragging you down, sweetheart.
 
2013-03-27 10:11:06 AM
Being the dad of an 11 year old I can say that the parents of this kid deserve a big FAIL.  My kids opinion is why does anybody care whether two people want to get married or not regardless of what sex they are.  She really does not see what all the fuss is about.  Of course she calls her classmates her in the heart of the bible belt ignorant twits at times also.

The Evil That Lies In The Hearts Of Men: people get to walk around telling everyone from a different denomination or religion that they aren't really married because they weren't married in a Reformed Baptist Church of God Reformation of 1915 or whatever their flavor of religion is? Or if a church chooses to marry a gay couple should members of other churches be obliged to recognize that as a legitimate marriage?


Theoretically this is already believed by the people who would do this.  Plenty of sects say you're going to hell for being the wrong kind of Christian, and there have been wars over it.  If you're dead-certain you're following the correct religion, then everyone else is wrong and therefore those marriages are false.  If you're not such a zealot, the logical conclusion is to let the other denominations/religions do their thing while you do yours, and stay the fark out of their business.

She has always leaned toward kindness and love. I've honestly never known a nicer person than my kid and I can't take full credit for that. She's just a loving, caring little girl.

It's all individual cases, but the difference in maturity between 21 and 23 can, frankly, be bigger than the gulf between 30 and 50.

Taking away rights?  Are you kidding me?  It's asking for special rights and cramming sick ideals down everyone's throats.  Kudos to the girl for trying, but unfortunately there are too many liberal activist judges and legislators.  The next thing the left will be fighting for are pedophiles, and the Fark community will be right there to support them.
