Unlike other parents, Sally Kohn, 37-year-old gay mom is very open about sexuality. She’s got her own preference for her daughter. Talking about her ‘preference’, She has given liberty to her daughter regarding sexuality preference.
This ‘butch lesbian’ is used to creating controversies. On her post on’ The Washington Post’ which went live on 2 February 2016 has created lots of Buzz in the air on which she has mentioned,
” I live in the liberal bubble of Park Slope, Brooklyn, where no yuppie would ever admit to wanting their kid to be anything in particular, other than happy.”
”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.”
Was it anywhere different with the straight parents? Of course not, right?
Talking about Kohn’s sexuality precisely, this open-minded gay mom had accepted the fact of herself being a gay as a gift, as she mentioned her parents were very supportive from the very first. That might be the reason she openly said,
” I’m a gay. I want my kids to be gay too.”
Kohn always has been open about her sexuality. From the above statements, we are very much clear about her expectations with her kid.
Despite the fact that her family was immensely supportive she also agreed that it is an easier life for the straight people than that of the gay one. She said,
”if my daughter is gay, she undoubtedly face challenges and hurdles she wouldn’t encounter if she were straight.”
There are challenges and competition everywhere on today’s date. It seems like she wants challenges on her daughter’s life, wants her to tackle the hurdles of life and come out even stronger.
"If my daughter is gay, I don't worry about her having a hard life.But i do worry about people expecting her to have a hard life-helping to perpetuate discrimination that might otherwise fade more quickly."
Kohn and Sarah have made sure that her daughter has got every information when it comes to gay families. They show her the picture of the gay families. Kohn said,
”When my daughter plays house with her stuffed koala bears as the mom and dad, we gently remind her that they could be a dad and dad. Sometimes she changes her narrative. Sometimes she doesn’t. It’s her choice.”
She further added,
”All I ultimately care about is that she has the choice and whatever choice she makes is enthusiastically and celebrated.”
"I want my daughter to know that being gay is equally desirable to being straight."
She has given liberty to her daughter and made sure that no matter whatever choice she makes, that will always be appreciated.
Kohn contended on the same post,
” it doesn’t look like my 6-year-old daughter is gay. In fact, she’s boy crazy.
Well! She has given her daughter a choice regarding sexuality, and it is a very rare thing that we will be seeing.
In 2010, Kohn uploaded a video of her precocious daughter in which Willa, her daughter was explaining about 'Bush tax cuts.'
