  1. I watched this video earlier and thought it is cute.

    But, one should realize, that a child at these ages in the video will generally mimic their parents’ thinking and what they say. Obviously, this was heavily edited to reflect the “mimicry” of more progressive parents and probably teachers as well. And for us, that’s obviously a “good” thing.

    I’m sure the christian-right is putting up videos of their own preference having the kids spout out how “degenerate” (adult) or “strange” (childlike) people are to want to marry their same gender. After all, like the complete idiot Bill Donohue of the catholic league says, “marriage isn’t about love, it’s only for the continuance of our human race” [paraphrased].

    1. From my experience children speak from their own degree of self awareness, and the amount of freedom of expression they are allowed by their parents. Don’t assume for a minute that they only parrot what they’ve heard from their parents. They have more interactions with TV and their friends then they often do with their parents. This provides them with a much greater degree of freedom today than most kids had when I was that age. When I was 12 I read Brave New World, Auntie Mame and Stranger in a Strange Land, so I was already thinking “out side the box.”

      1. “Don’t assume for a minute that they only parrot what they’ve heard from their parents.”

        Really? With home-schooled kids? No, they most definitely parrot their parents.

        .

        “They have more interactions with TV and their friends then they often do with their parents.”

        Not with religious right parents …. and … most home schooled parents (because of their religion).

        .

        “This provides them with a much greater degree of freedom today than most kids had when I was that age.”

        Again, not with those kids I described above.

        My responses are based on USA kids/homes/schools.

        Hopefully, it’s much better for public-schooled kids as well as (expected) more liberal homes.

      1. Where were you going with this other than it’s a silly song?

        (But, most of those kids I’m sure would clean up very nicely.)

  2. LOL I think that’s great the one boy saying “It’s a fiscal issue” lol that is so pure and real. In his mind, sexuality is such a mute point.
