See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
As a mom, I think a little uncertainty is a good quality for kids to have. I encourage my kids to question and reflect and examine and get caught up in existential quandaries: Welcome to the human experience, guys.
So when I come across a kid like 14-year-old Caiden Cowger, who has suspiciously strong and narrow-minded opinions about something he has no experience with, I assume he picked up those ideas from some influential adults in his life. Like, maybe his parents ... not that I'm pointing fingers.
Who apparently encourage him to go on the radio and blast those opinions far and wide. See, Cowger is a talk show host of sorts, and his favorite thing to do on the air is to slam gay teens for ... being gay. And, of course, to blame President Obama for turning those teens gay in the first place.
Oh yes. I am not making this up.
I knew these kids. Some of ‘em I was friends with. I knew these teenagers when they were in elementary school. I knew them when they were in the beginning of middle school. And you know what? They were not homosexuals. They just decided all the sudden "You know what? I think I'm going to be gay."
Why they are becoming homosexuals, why they are becoming gay is because they're being encouraged by it. President Obama: "It's alright, it's okay, you were born that way!"
Caiden, Caiden, Caiden ... if only I could lock you in a room with the Complete Works of Friedrich Nietzsche for a month or so ... sigh. I can't, of course, because you're not my kid.
Anyway, that's besides the point. The point is ... I can't imagine raising my kids this way, and it really sucks that some parents insist on brainwashing their kids with the same hateful crap they believe.
Do you think this kid really believes Obama makes teens gay, or is he just repeating what he's heard his parents say?
