How Gay Happens

In case any of you out there in the blue states were confused? We here in Arkansas have it figured out.

Also what's wrong with it.

Here's a letter from the local paper:

Just in case all y'all was wondering about dressing your little boys in girly clothes. Or, you know, PINK or anything.

If my ex-son-in-law could read, I would say that he must have read that article in the paper. It seems, according to my daughter, the beautiful soft pink and green sweater that I bought my grandson for Christmas will make him, my grandson, a sissy. (according to the ex-son-in-law) My Grandson says to me, "Nana, boys don't wear pink, boys wear tough colors." I can not believe that colors are being divided into tough and sissy. Who is doing this? Do people really think that colors can identify who you have sex with? I'm just glad that I kept the doll here at the house or I'm sure he would not be allowed to play with it. After all, boys don't play with dolls.

Uh oh! I'd better rush right home and get rid of the tea set and the plastic food that my 3-year-old son loves to have his dinosaurs eat! And those dolls he plays with, well, they are right out! I didn't realize I could be "programming" him to be GAY!!! Oh the horror!

See, by letting him have access to a wide, wide variety of toys and games, I thought I was teaching him to be a caring, compasionate, interesting and well-rounded human who could make his own choices about who and what he wants to be when he grows up, without pointless societal limits and boundaries. For some reason I thought that I was teaching him some important values. Little did I realize that by letting him run around the house wearing plastic Mardi Gras beads, I could also be influencing his adult sex life!

And what could be more important? What was I thinking? He can grow up to be anything he wants (policeman who uses "just a little" too much force to subdue his suspects, business tycoon who rapes the environment and exploits the workers in his factories, doctor who provides surgical breast implants to fifteen-year-old girls, axe murderer, whatever), just so long as he doesn't turn out to be, heaven forbid, GAY!

Yep, nothing but guns and trucks at our house anymore. Anyone know where I can trade these dolls for some realistic-looking guns?
