Much of the LGBT community might be rightfully indignant when detractors assert there exists a hidden agenda to convince the next generation to embrace — and even engage in — the gay lifestyle.
Then there are parents like Dashiell and Michelle, a lesbian couple raising a son together, who seem to give credence to these conspiracy theories. The latter acknowledged in a recent interview that she wants to see her son engage in “queer” behavior instead of the typical boyish interest he currently has.
“He, like, came with all of these sporting talents that are, like, visible at 17 months,” she said, complaining that her partner “easily relates to him on that level” while she does not.
“I’m constantly, like, trying to queer my relationship with him and get him to wear tutus,” she said.
The young boy’s constant objection to her pressure is apparently not enough to dissuade her.
“He hates it,” she admitted. “He’s just like, ‘No.'”
