CNN Contributor Sally Kohn: ‘I’m Gay. And I Want My Kid To Be Gay, Too’

That poor little girl… she’s got two parents who are truly screwed up in the head. The little one is doing what normal little girls do and Kohn, who claims she wants her daughter to have free choice, is doing everything she can to push her daughter into the lifestyle she has chosen for her already. That’s bad parenting 101. Kohn and her partner have taken the gay rights movement, feminism and their twisted fight for social and environmental justice way beyond anything sane, if they ever were even close to that. Unabashed whackos, they even use the child in political propaganda. Unless the child is very strong, she doesn’t stand a chance and will grow up to be emotionally disturbed and twisted, just like her parents. This has nothing to do with being gay – it has everything to do with forcing a child into a predetermined mold for life.

From the Daily Caller:

Sally Kohn, a CNN contributor and progressive activist, says she hopes her 6-year-old daughter will turn out to be gay.

Kohn, who has previously described herself as a “butch lesbian,” copped to the preference in an opinion piece for the Washington Post.

“I’m gay. And I want my kid to be gay, too,” wrote Kohn, who also contributes to The Daily Beast.

Kohn defended her position, arguing that it’s normal for parents to want their children to follow in their footsteps, whether it involves extracurricular activities, political outlook or sexual orientation.

“More often than not, we define happiness as some variation on our own lives, or at least the lives of our expectations. If we went to college, we want our kids to go to college. If we like sports, we want our kids to like sports. If we vote Democrat, of course we want our kids to vote Democrat,” wrote Kohn, who lives with her partner Sarah Hansen and their daughter Willa Hansen-Kohn in the “liberal bubble of Park Slope, Brooklyn.”

From the Daily Mail:

And while the pundit is known for her outspoken views, she admits that her straight friends have a massive problem with her wanting her daughter to be gay when she grows up.

She wrote: [One friend asked] ‘Don’t you want her to be happy?’

She adds: ‘A friend once told me ‘I wouldn’t even choose for myself to be gay.’ It was a sad admission, because she was.’

She goes on to suggest that there is a widely-held viewpoint that ‘no one would choose to be gay — even in the gay rights movement.’

She adds: ‘I’ve never for a single second regretted being gay, nor saw it as anything other than an asset and a gift.

‘My parents were ridiculously supportive from Day One, and I had a great community of friends and mentors who made me feel unconditionally accepted.

‘By the time my daughter comes of age, she’ll have even more of a support network, including two moms, for crying out loud.

‘If my daughter is gay, I don’t worry about her having a hard life. But I do worry about people expecting her to have a hard life — helping to perpetuate discrimination that might otherwise fade more quickly.

‘I want my daughter to know that being gay is equally desirable to being straight.

‘The problem is not the idea that homosexuality could be a choice but the idea that heterosexuality should be compulsory.

‘In my house it’s plainly, evidently not. We’ve bought every picture book featuring gay families, even the not-very-good ones and we have most of the nontraditional-gender-role books as well — about the princess who likes to fight dragons and the boy who likes to wear dresses.’

How can her little girl make her own decisions if her parents keep telling her she is making the wrong ones? If they keep pushing her to do what is normal according to them for her or disparaging her because she likes boys, parties and dresses, rather than girls, protests and jeans? That will be one very confused child as she grows up. Forget about peer pressure… parental pressure is what will do her in. This is what the whacky Left breeds – especially in the media and Hollywood – homes where children can’t just be children. They have to be a political statement.
