One Equal World

Terrible video online

Posted on: May 8, 2012

Some videos just make your skin crawl.  There’s one online right now of North Carolina Pastor Sean Harris describing exactly how he believes parents should act when faced with children who don’t exhibit standard gender norms, and it isn’t pretty.

 

 

“Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist. Man up. Give him a good punch. Ok? You are not going to act like that. You were made by God to be a male and you are going to be a male.”

 

 

 

He goes on to explain that, in his worldview, daughters are expected to “walk like a girl and talk like a girl and smell like a girl and that means you are going to be beautiful. You are going to be attractive. You are going to dress yourself up.'”

 

 

This terrible message is in response to North Carolina’s proposed Amendment 1, which would define marriage in the constitution as between one man and one woman and would outlaw domestic partnerships and civil unions.

 

 

Outlaw domestic partnerships and civil unions? How could a state slide so far backwards as to think that this is a good idea?  However, Public Policy Polling released a new poll that shows that there might be a light of hop on the horizon. According to them, support among North Carolinians for the proposed amendment has reached an all-time low.
