Homophobia is Gay

My daughter was watching a television program with her mother.  The subject was when parents disapprove of their children’s love interest.  At the beginning of the program the mother said “I hate when it’s about gay people.”  My daughter said “There’s nothing wrong with being gay.”  Her mother snaps back “Why would you say that?? Are YOU gay???” My daughter says no.

My daughter tells me this story and I say “Do you have to be a Jew to think that there’s nothing wrong with being Jewish? Why does who you are have to have any bearing on what you believe?” My daughter says “My mom says gay is wrong because she thinks it’s gross.”  I said “Some people think black people having sex with anybody is gross.  Does that mean that’s wrong? Why should visceral feelings of grossness even enter into the picture? You can think gay is gross, you may even think it’s funny, and as a free individual you might even point and laugh.  But your personal feelings don’t mean that homosexuality is wrong and should be outlawed.”

The funny thing about this exchange is that my daughter is intuitively right about this issue whereas her mother is on the side of wrong.  The reason for this is because my daughter has been reading about the scientific studies done on this issue whereas her mom has been using The Bible as if it were a serious textbook.  In fact my daughter, doing some research on her own, pulled up a Wikipedia page what shows that animals such as Bonobos engage in same sex behavior.  This would argue against the idea that homosexuality is “unnatural” as if it were so it would not exist in nature.  I said to my daughter I wonder if your mom thinks there’s a section in hell reserved for homosexual Bonobos. 

Haha, Bonobos.  There is no subject so funny that inserting monkeys into the argument can’t make it funnier!

    I think I had just gotten inspired by watching John Mangopolis. At least I didn’t go out and get his same haircut.

    Plus, that was like a whole ‘nother millenium. We’re allowed to change our opinions from one thousand year block to the next.

  5. Not only a millenium but also a decade and a century

    I was at Auggie’s and answered a trivia question right (question, which 1950s music group changed their name from the Robins, answer The Coasters). Since I answered right I won and they handed me two tickets. I’m like sweet, two tickets! To what? They said to the all male review (strippers). I’m like oops. This woman ran up to me and said “I wanted to win that!” I said give me five bucks you can have both tickets.” Done! I made $5!!!

  7. capitalism in it’s purest form

    On second thought I probably could have gotten $10 from a Bonobo.

  9. bonobo says:

    Could have. But I just spent all my extra cash on a bidet.

  10. Nothing funny about gay monkey sex

    Remember when Eric Cartman’s pig named “Fluffy” gave birth and all the little piggies had faces like Mr. Garrison? That was great!!!

  12. Phelps says:

    Whew. I feel so much less racist about thinking dogfart.com is gross.

  13. Bidet,Usage:
    “Bidets are primarily used to wash and clean the external genitalia and the anus, as well as the skin near these areas.” Only a “treehouse” bonobo would buy a bidet.

    They should make it so that when those girls’ mouths come too close to the penises a bunch of backfeed comes squealing out of the speakers. Then Alan Funt can come out of the background pointing at the hidden camera and everybody can get a good laugh!
