What today’s parents tell their children about marriage

A conversation overheard in Riverside Park [in Manhattan] this morning:LA replies:
Let us please understand that what this mother said to her daughter is not shocking or extreme. This woman was behaving in complete conformity to the view of sexuality, marriage, and morality that is now upheld by our society, and made official by laws establishing same-sex “marriage,” including the law that the political leaders of New York State are attempting to pass even as I write this. If this women were to say to her small daughter, “When you’re grown up, you’ll find a man to love and marry him,” she would be privileging heterosexuality over homosexuality and sending her daugher an anti-homosexual message. She would be a bad person. By telling her daughter that she might marry a “man or a woman, whichever you want,” she is being a good person.
