    oh please….

    CHILD: Mom, those 2 guys are holding hands…
    MOM: That’s because they like each other. Now get over it!

    end of discussion…

    Mr E you are correct, nothing but straight dudes performing and straight kids enjoying it. Yeah right. Andy, I saw the gay bit, when they were dueling swords. Get it, sword fight…in the mouth. Brings back memories, I need some time to myself for awhile.

    “Children” are being murdered and gay bashed daily around the world because of homo prejudice,homohatred and homophobia. Human Beings are bombarded with daily with overt and covert messages that same sex love is not equal to opposite sex love that is spoon fed from the crib. What fucking planet do these “Adults” live on?

    So ….. the most the fundies can come up with anymore is that we’re making kids’ lives too “complicated”? If that’s the best they can do, we must have progressed further than I thought.

    I can’t believe that things are so much more liberal here in the Twin Cities, but apparently they are. When Bourne’s “Swan Lake” was here, it was packed with families who were very much aware of how homoerotic it was.

    The only reason kids see a relationship between two men as sexual is because their parents tell them it is. Most kids just see two guys who like being around each other, nothing more.

    What do they mean by complicating children’s lives before they need to be? There’s nothing complicated about a gay couple: a man loves a man or a woman loves a woman.

    Kids are highly malleable, so if you treat being gay as a disease or a plague, children are going to act as if it’s a disease or a plague. And it shouldn’t be treated as such.

    I’m just so annoyed by people and their hangups.

    Actually, I think kids tend to have very strong opinions. Like, my mother couldn’t make me eat lima beans and there are always very strong toy preferences (ha!), or what books to read. However, relationship stuff probably goes way over the heads of most kids. I understood how families worked, and how businesses worked, but the nuances probably escaped me, as did any associated body language more subtle than handshakes and kissing.

    Reminds me a little bit of the smartly-dressed gay couple walking their dogs and discussing The Current Madness in Tim Burton’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” It’s not much more than a throwaway 10-second bit, but it’s very obvious what they’re about. Some gays might squawk about what they see as a “stereotypical” representation, but I think it just reflects the modern world.

    I always love, and of course I mean hate, the comment “We need to protect our children”.
    From what!? The truth of reality! Paranoid homophobes who would like nothing more than to live in a bubble irritate me to no end.

    In a world where children are faced with terrorist threats, their parents dying in the war, being thrown out of their houses because they can’t afford the mortgage…this is going to damage them? How about you let kids grow up the way the world forces them to!

    I wonder if parents had the same reaction when the first inter-racial production of Cinderella was performed…

    Heck, for a while, it was scandalous for plays to have any female actors in it at all!
