At the end of nearly every Disney movie there is a kiss between a man and a woman. That is a introduction to heterosexuality. In almost every kids show (once you get past the preschool age where it’s nothing but counting and colors) there is a romantic relationship either in canon or implied between the lead character and someone of the opposite sex. Straight romance and in many cases, sexuality (in kissing as well as “should we do it?” sweeps episodes) are everywhere.
I see so many people say “well they’re too young for gay stuff!” but have no problem with this. Then they turn around and say they support gay rights. No. In saying these things, you’re reinforcing gay relationships as something taboo, or oversexual, or a fetish or kink, when they aren’t. They can be just as simple, clean and age appropriate as any heterosexual couple on TV. You are reinforcing the idea that gay relationships are different then straight ones on a fundamental level when they aren’t.
And that means you don’t fucking get it.
Hell, One Million Moms right now is causing a stink about Marvel and DC comics having canon gay couples, and in their letter, they say “It is disgusting that your company would participate in introducing sexual orientation to children…” As if comics aren’t filed with heterosexual relationships already.
News flash: straight is a sexual orientation. It’s not the baseline, it’s not the control group, it’s not the “normal” way, it’s just the majority. Gay couples can be just as sexual, or non-sexual, as straight couples. They are exactly the same, except in one situation, the two people are of the same gender. Gay relationships are not a kink, or a fetish, or any of the things you people seem to think they are in contrast to straight ones.
If you can’t see that you need to stop talking and stop pretending like you support the LGBT.
