I know this sounds crazy already, but, aren’t the majority of us raised to be straight by our parents? We’re, or at least my brother and I were brought up on images of heterosexual couples, only educated on one type of love, and taught that one type of love is acceptable. We were never even taught the word gay at home, and what it meant in modern context…
I don’t really remember when I learned about the concept of gays/lesbians, etc., but it wasn’t at home. So, don’t you think that parents who do this and don’t educate their kids on various types of sexualities and making them feel open to choose, are raising their kids to be straight? Maybe that’s not the right phrasing, but, you get what I mean— they’re raising their kids to be close minded, and while that can change it does dictate so much of who you will be as a person for the most influential years of your life.
But what if you raised your children the opposite way— what if you only surrounded them of images of gay couples, taught them primarily that, that was the acceptable standard for a relationship? Of course they would see heterosexual relationships in their daily life, but, if somehow you could more so expose them to homosexuality… would that somehow be more wrong than doing the same heterosexuality as an undertone?
Personally, I’m going to introduce my children to homosexual relationships a lot at home, and then heterosexual relationships after, since they will see that daily in society. No, I will not force a certain sexuality upon my kids— of course not— but it would make me happy if I had gay/bi sons and daughters… or if not, it would make me equally as happy to have straight sons/daughters who are open minded and accepting of others.
I don’t know, I guess I was just wondering how that type of parenting would affect a child’s mental state/sexuality, and how you guys feel about the issue?
Feel free to reblog and post your responses.
In my opinion its far more important to raise children to simply… love.
Of course learning sexuality and preference would probably be much healthy learned at home but i dont believe self sexuality is more important than self love.
Man wasnt made to love woman he was made to, love - unconditionally (vise versa).
My mind is telling me that the lack of correct love in the home can leave children with sexual and mental issues. Ex: looking for love in the wrong places or feeling like we need someone to love us before we love ourselves…
I dont care who my children decide to love i just hope that when they do love its done correctly. I want them to understand what kind of treatment they deserve and not to accept any less. So when the time comes and i am a parent it should be single priority , aside from clothing, shelter and food, to be an example of what love is, should be and could be.
Love stands alone… in my mind there are no “different types”.. Being romantic or platonic are only types of relationships and true love has very little to do with either.
falling into Autumn when i caught um.
I’ve noticed that upon meeting me, people have the general tendency to take me either too seriously or they cant take me seriously at all. It bothers me. People can be so extreme, I can be extreme. It has a lot to do with my facial expressions and my at the time mood, I suppose. Then you get to know me and realize that I mostly live in the middle; seriously joking or joking seriously.
NO, I’m not always smiling. That would hurt my face. I smile with reason, mostly. But I guess that’s apart of the problem; when I’m not smiling, to some, my face reads serious.
Don’t get it twisted, I can be a pretty serious person at times, but that isn’t who I am – a serious person.
I literally just stop caring, but I’ll press post anyways.
Is just some shit to say. It is as real as the boogie man and national security.
I’m really hard on my mom. [Part1]
Don’t ask me why, I’m about to tell you. I’m about to tell myself also because there is an explanation, a good one, and I’d like to be able to mentally articulate it to myself when I’m being tough on her.
I’ll start by saying that my moms a very caring person. I’m not just saying that because she’s my mom or just to say nice shit. She’s really a care for and give a lot kind of person. Example: My granddad is always telling this story of when she was a little girl in England. Papa – my granddad- gave her a big bag of candy and took her for a ride on one of those double-decker buses. While they were on the bus my mom went around and gave every single person a piece of candy and then went back to her seat. When she got back to her seat she started to cry because she didn’t have any candy left. She was so egger to share that she didn’t even set aside one piece of candy for her self. She’s the same way today.
Two, my mom is very naïve. This isn’t always a bad thing, in most cases I think it is. It has a lot do with her sheltered up bringing, her lack of and too much experience in situations. I believe so anyway. You can tell my mom something outlandish, like you only have one leg when you clearly have both, I kid you fuck not, she’d believe you. She’d probably offer you a piggy back ride too. (I’m exaggerating of course.) She’s gullible sometimes, yes, but she expects the best from people. And that’s not necessarily a good thing. I believe so anyway.
Third, sometimes she can be so self centered and rude. This isn’t who she is at all but I swear that’s who she’s been turning into lately. Mind you, this year is the most time that I’ve ever spent with her. Growing up I was pretty latch key, I went to boarding school and then straight to college. I miss our long distance phone relationship; the heart grew fond. Our relationship has probably always been ok only because I never really had to deal with her ass for extended amounts of time. Truth, that self centered and rudeness that I see in her I definitely see it in myself. I am my mother’s child, for the least part.

NEW ORLEANS – A bolt of lightning struck the ship capturing oil from a blown-out BP well in the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday, igniting a fire that halted containment efforts in another setback for the embattled company in its nearly two-month struggle to stop the spill, the company said.
The fire was quickly extinguished and no one was injured. BP said it hopes to resume containing oil from the well sometime Tuesday afternoon.
The fire occurred on the Discoverer Enterprise, where engineers are siphoning about 630,000 gallons of oil a day through a cap on top of the well.
“At the moment, there’s no capture, no containment going on, but we’ll start up the Enterprise when it’s safe to do so,” BP spokesman Robert Wine said.
The fire happened as President Barack Obama was in Florida as part of a two-day visit to the stricken Gulf Coast. It also came a day after the British oil giant announced that it hoped to trap as much as roughly 2.2 million gallons of oil daily by the end of June as it deploys additional containment equipment.
BP has been beefing up its containment efforts with the hurricane season in mind, building a sturdier system that can withstand the volatile weather that is so common in the Gulf in the summer months.
The Coast Guard has taken BP to task for not having enough redundancies in the system to be able to shift gears in events such as Tuesday’s lightning strike.
Wine said company hopes to soon start a second containment system — a burner on a semi-submersible drilling rig that could incinerate up to 420,000 gallons of oil a day. The company had hoped to start the system as early as Tuesday.
Scientists have estimated that anywhere between about 40 million gallons to more than 100 million gallons of oil have spewed into the Gulf since a drilling rig exploded April 20, killing 11 workers. Though the latest cap installed the well has been capturing oil, large quantities are still spilling into the sea.
The company said it would use robotic submarines to survey the entire containment system, including the cap over the well, for possible damage from the fire. The fire occurred in a vent pipe leading from a tank on the Enterprise where processed oil is stored, Wine said.
Louisiana has been hit with several storms and lightning strikes in the past day.
