Hey /b/ i read about this episode of clarence that has a gay couple in it. i dont know how to feel about this. i mean i understand that there's nothing wrong with being gay, but little kids shouldnt have to question their sexuality that young. What's b got to say on this matter?? PIc Related
I think you're afraid OP. Maybe if you saw more gay males in your life that have been openly accepted by the general public, you wouldn't have the issue you're having now. It's okay to like you.
Sexuality is fluid, not rigid. The earlier we get this out of the way the better off everyone will be. Especially men. Women can lez out and people don't give a fuck but with men its all so fucking uptight that I'm surprised suicide rates aren't higher.
"Normal" just means the majority.
Wheelchairs aren't "normal" either, but you didn't see people get pissed off over Pelswick.
nice b8 m8, i r8 8/8
Why should we give a fuck about them being mildly uncomfortable? They need to learn about life, not to avoid things their parents don't like. Societal stigma create the discomfort not the gays
i assume this same show has straight couples featured?
why should kids be introduced to the concept of couples this early? i mean i understand that there's nothing wrong with couples, but little kids shouldn't have to question their sexuality that young. surely they're not ready for relationships yet. what's your opinion on that?
Because its about time that we taught kids at a young age that theres nothing wrong with being gay.
My girlfriend works in child care and there are a lesbian couple that have a kid going there. All the kids there are so totally fine with it, they are interested and curious but kids see everyone equal, skin, sexuality, everything.
Its not until society, religion etc gets into their heads do they start seeing people for their traits and judging people for them.
Not all kids see a lesbian couple daily and become accustomed to it. By showing them at a young age on tv that being gay is normal, we are keeping them in that state of not judging people.
Kids conceptualise relationships from birth. How does that confuse them? If their old enough to understand the concept of a couple then they're old enough to understand the conceptnofna gay couple. The only reason it would confuse them is if their parents refused to admit gay people even exist. Further pretending they aren't real doesn't solve that problem. And if you mean it confuses them sexually then I think you're wrong on that part unless the kid in question is gay himself. In which case the confusion is good because that means he's going to be learning something about himself that's better known sooner than later
it's only confusing when they're only shown straight couple over and over and then they finally see a gay couple.
if they see both from a young age i guarantee they literally give no shits. maybe they'll be curious but it won't be a life changing moment for them.
i assume this show has a fat ass doing stupid shit?
why should kids be introduced to the concept of idiots this early? i mean i understand that there's nothing wrong with idiots, but little kids shouldnt have to question humanity that young. surely they're not ready for existential crises yet. what's your opinion on that?
Yes. As adults its our responsibility to take our intellectually vulnerable children who will one day rule the world and trick them into not knowing about sex, which is a biological imperative. Surely nothing could go wrong
Lets shelter our children from the horrors of the world so when they find out about them, they are confused and scared.
Like this anon said, children don't see people for their individual traits until society trains them too, they start off by seeing everyone as people.
shit, you're right.
we should teach them everything about sex as soon as possible.
every parent should personally introduce their children to sex through experience.
if that's not possible, they should seek the help of local sports coaches or janitors to do it for them.
these kids need to know about sex, THEY'RE THE FUTURE, GOD DAMN IT!
I was 8, I didn't want to see mr miyagi get sad about his lost vietnam war child as a christmas special.
The subject matter what heavy, and the animation style was unsettling.
the fact of the matter is this.
children should be having sex from the moment theyre born until the moment they die
if you arnt having sex with a sexy toddler-kun youre doing humanity wrong
You can teach kids about concepts like relationships, romance, intimacy, and when their old enough, sex. Kids need to know this stuff.
Didn't your parents give you "the talk"? Didn't you have sex ed around age 13?
they didn't even kiss on the lips, but in another episode chelsea and sumo kiss angry and sweaty. only reason not to question your sexuality is if your afraid of the answer
Never seen the show. What's the ratio of "gay couple kissing scenes" to "straight couple kissing scenes"?
Guessing it's probably 1 to 0 now?
i learned through biology. which is probably how everyone should learn... it's natural. my parents didn't teach me anything about sex. i slept through sex ed. the internet is a wonderful tool and catalyst as well.
that being said, I dont think its really wrong or anything. it was just a kiss displayed in a rather normal way. it wasnt obnoxious, it was just an normal kiss on the cheeks, not insane anal fisting.
I think what the writers did was a good thing. it will pique the younger viewers into wantng to create opinions. ultimately it is up to the parents to talk about this stuff in a healthy way. but its a good start
sorry if this makes little sense, im absurdly tired right now
