According to a Washington Post editorial she wrote recently, CNN contributor Sally Kohn — who refers to herself as a “butch lesbian” — explained that exposing her homosexuality to her 6-year-old daughter is not enough.
“I’m gay,” she asserted, “and I want my kid to be gay, too.”
She went on to explain her predilection by comparing her sexual proclivity to any trait a parent might want to pass down to their offspring.
“More often than not,” she wrote, “we define happiness as some variation on our own lives, or at least the lives of our expectations. If we went to college, we want our kids to go to college. If we like sports, we want our kids to like sports. If we vote Democrat, of course we want our kids to vote Democrat.”
As it stands, however, Kohn lamented the fact that the girl she is raising with her partner, Sarah Hansen, is not exhibiting same-sex attraction.
“Time will tell,” she explained, “it doesn’t look like my 6-year-old daughter is gay. In fact, she’s boy crazy. It seems early to me, but I’m trying to be supportive.”
She acknowledged that another parent at her daughter’s school pointed out an unpleasant truth in relation to the girl’s infatuation with a particular boy.
“Bet it wouldn’t bother you so much if her crush was on a girl,” Kohn quoted the other parent — an allegation she couldn’t deny.
“She was right,” Kohn admitted, adding that she is a “slightly overbearing pro-gay mom.”
Even during playtime, she said, her bias comes through.
“When my daughter plays house with her stuffed koala bears as the mom and dad,” she wrote, “we gently remind her that they could be a dad and a dad. Sometimes she changes her narrative. Sometimes she doesn’t. It’s her choice.”
