Two Children Were Harmed In The Filming Of This Pro Proposition 8 Video

UGH. I totally recognize that as a parent you want to instill your children with the same moral compass that you yourself use to make sense of the world around you. And I totally recognize that we will never truly become the hateful, backwards country that is a Nightmare On A Hill to the rest of the world if we don’t instill a healthy dose of bigotry and intolerance in our youth. But keep that shit to yourself. Using your children as props in a video promoting a bill that would take rights away from other human beings is the ultimate sadness. And I know this isn’t really the point, but if you ARE going to use your children as props in a video promoting a bill that would take rights away from other human beings with a cringe-worthy song to sing, AT LEAST MAKE THE SONG MAKE SENSE. I’m not a lawyer, but I’m pretty sure that if Proposition 8 fails your dad isn’t going to just become your mom. Unless I’m way off the mark and Proposiiton 8 is intended to stop the California law requiring all California parents to become post-op transgenders, in which case, these kids are right. That would be confusing.
