LifeSiteNews and Porno Pete have a problem with a three-year-old

Pride.com ran a story titled: The Internet Is Head Over Heels for This Adorable, Openly Gay 3-Year-Old. It was all harmless. It's not something that I would have written but it was well intentioned. Obviously, a toddler is not openly gay. Gender is solid by the time a kid is three but sexual orientation forms (or is understood) at about 11 at the very earliest.

This sparked a torrent of ignorant abuse from dependable sources. This attracted negative comments to the site (most of which are rather idiotic) and those created more social media attention. The post was deleted but the opprobrium ad absurdum continues. According to LifeSiteNews:
The news has pro-family advocates deeply concerned for the child’s safety.

"It's sick that anyone would celebrate a three-year-old boy thinking he's 'gay,'" said Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) and assistant director of MassResistance. "Why can't activists just leave the children alone in their innocence?"

"This boy was obviously influenced by a corrupt adult's agenda,” he continued. “One of the byproducts of LGBTQ fanaticism is that 'gay' and 'trans' militants are constantly looking for ways to indoctrinate very young children in their ideology--even to the point pushing pro-homosexual and pro-transgender picture books on toddlers. They want offset the normal, healthy development that comes from being raised in a stable, faith-filled home with a loving mom and dad who are committed to each other for life in marriage.”
The concern for the “child's safety” translates to the idea that the parents are going to turn the kid gay. These folks cannot accept the scientific reality that the sexual orientation of a child cannot be influenced, one way or the other, by adults or anyone else for that matter.

As for Peter LaBarbera, his personality disorder has become quite paranoid, even psychotic. He perceives the existence of militants, fanatics and activists everywhere. They all have malevolent agendas and they are all out to get Christians. He also embraces the idea that he is omniscient. He just knows that the kid has been corrupted by an evil agenda. Agendas are important in Peter-World. The boy was “obviously influenced” according to Pete. Unknowable things are obvious which adds more to the psychological profile.

When one of Phyllis Schlafly's sons came out as gay that should have caused folks like LaBarbera to ponder the concept. However, folks like LaBarbera have the intellectual curiosity of an ironing board. At least the ironing board is useful.

I think it was the kid's aunt who thought that it was cute for the kid to be who he wants to be. Parents are doing the right thing as well. If the child decides next week that his isn't gay after all, well that will be fine too. If anything the aunt was celebrating intelligent parents who weren't freaking out over their kid claiming to be gay.

For the record, when children do come out we should be celebrating. Not because they are gay or straight but because they have come to a realization of who they are. That's worth some festivities as far as I am concerned. Peter LaBarbera's disapproval could not be more irrelevant.
