The night before the Inauguration, my dad, brother, niece and I were sitting on the couch of our hotel room watching “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” for the very first time. Despite some of the negative controversy surrounding the show, I became an instant fan. It was not only warming to see a family make a ton of fun out of very little, but it was refreshing to watch the southern family from Georgia, an extremely conservative state, be so genuinely embracing of their gay “Uncle Poodle.”
When star child Alana aka Honey Boo Boo said, “Ain’t nothing wrong with being gay. Everybody’s a little gay” with her signature sass and shaking of the head, it spoke volumes of how she had been raised and conditioned to think that there should be no preferential treatment of straight people over gay people. If every parent would follow suit and instill that same principle of equality, it could be the start of a more improved and less prejudice generation!
What do you think of our country’s current state regarding treatment of LGBT people? Do you think that school systems should teach more about gay sexual identity in sex education courses? Do you think that parents have a responsibility to have early discussions with their children about the various types of couples? Share with your fellow beauties!
