It looks like Bristol Palin isn't the biggest fan of President Obama's decision to support gay marriage.

The 21-year-old daughter of former Vice President candidate Sarah Palin, wrote a blog post about her thoughts on Obama's decision to finally admit that he does in fact support marriage equality, and didn't exactly agree with him. In the interview with ABC News where Obama finally revealed his support, he said one of his biggest influences was not only his wife Michelle, but his daughters Sasha and Malia, who didn't understand why some of their friends' parents couldn't marry.

It seems as though Bristol had a problem with that sentiment, as she blogged:

“While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads. In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage. Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview. In this situation, it was the other way around. I guess we can be glad that Malia and Sasha aren’t younger, or perhaps today’s press conference might have been about appointing Dora the Explorer as Attorney General because of her success in stopping Swiper the Fox.

Sometimes dads should lead their family in the right ways of thinking. In this case, it would’ve been nice if the President would’ve been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee."

Bristol, who is a mother herself, welcomed her first child with then-boyfriend Levi Johnston at the age of 17. The two have since split, while Johnston has gotten another girl pregnant, and plans to name their child Breeze Bereta, after his favorite gun.

What do you think about Bristol's thoughts on this situation? Sound off in the comments!

    My partner of 30 years and I finally got married. Of course, we had to go to another state that recognizes that we are people too, just to get a legal document. Oh but wait, we still don't have any rights in the state we live in or even in the country that we love.

    Ya'll need to wake up! God didn't give us a choice to be gay. He made us that way!!!! You Hippocrates can't believe that. I don't nose around in your life, stop meddling in mine.

  • clarisag101

    SHE IS RIGHT AND YOU KNOW IT STOP LIVING IN SIN!! What is up with this California living!!! Many people aren't for gay rights still so ha!!!!!!!!!!!! But anyway stop thinking that people that don't agree with gay marriage are bullies, we just want them to got to heaven jezzzz is that so bad? To want something so perfect for people they don't even know!! That is love! Majority of the world is Christian and God made Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve. I'm sticking with God's word, other than some people's opinions.

    Kids with gay parents are actually happier than those with mother/father household. Who does she think she is to say that? She is a single mom, she has no right to say that crap!! "Sometimes dads should lead their family in the right ways of thinking": sure, let's do like your kid's dad; dumping you, geting another girl pregnant and naming your child after a name. What a great idea, thanks Bristol!

    Oh yeah, also: Kids from households with gay parents are actually just as well-adjusted as the rest of us. You can do a good job as a single parent, a gay parent, a step-parent, or someone who is not even the parent, who takes responsibility for children. She doesn't know what she's talking about.

    Obama didn't change his mind just because his kids said he should, he probably thought about it and realized it was the right thing to do. He probably always supported gay marriage, he just wanted people to get used to him before he said something so "controversial". But the Palin's are known for being stupid, and saying things like "why change something after thousands of years" when women didn't get the right to vote in this country until 1920. And the south had segregation laws until 1963. And it has only been150 years since we freed slaves in the US. But I'm sure she doesn't know or care about any of that.

    What century is this? I find it it more than disappointing that everyone is so astonished and proud of Obama for supporting gay marriage, when it is his DUTY as the president to protect the rights and civil liberties of ALL Americans. Understandably he took a chance by making his declaration, but I feel as if it was the bare minimum we should expect from him. As for Bristol: You are not doing anything to disprove all of the hill billy, republican jokes people make about you and your family. Welcome to the 21st century. Open your tiny little brain to a larger and more beautiful conception of love and marriage!

    As long as people like her are given a forum they will spread their hate. She was an unwed teen mother, really who is she to comment on what a family should consist of? She is not an elected official, she is a private citizen and the only reason she gets air time is her last name. We need to ignore people like this or print the opinions of every body. Stop giving her the time of day and perhaps she will shut her mouth.

  • buckshotmike

    or thousands of years of thinking that women were inferior to men.

  • sadiesays

    All points have been made in above comments. But not only does her rant make no sense, why is it even getting publicity? She is the child of a fly-by-night hack, with not a gravel of brain matter in her head. That's all I can really add. :)

    I back Obama's opinion to support same sex marriage, but I will not back his reason behind it. After all of the years of his being against it, now with it being election year he is for it? Give me a break. As for Bristol, and her opinion of Obama's is no different than any of us! I guarantee at least one of you is a dead beat parent. I guarantee at least one of you cheats on your significant other. I guarantee at least one of you has a criminal history. I guarantee at least one of you has had a one night stand. I guarantee at least one of you has stolen something. I guarantee at least one of you treats one or both of your parents like total crap. Does that mean YOUR opinion should not matter?

    Uhhh...didn't she come from a mother/father household and STILL manage to become a teenage single mother?? Yea, she totally benefited from that household, ahahaha!!!

    A good course in logical thinking would be a huge help here. Just because one makes a "mistake" doesn't eliminate their right to hold an opinion. She would be the first to admit that being a single mom is not what's best for kids. If Obama can have an opinion on gay marriage (not being in one) then Bristol can have an opinion on it too (not being married.)

    ALSO! "While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads." - Bristol... Nice to say considering your situation!

    I kind of expected Obama to get some flack for what he said, but it was the right thing to do. And Bristol has no right to say any of this because she is a single parent. She is such a hypocrite. And who are you to judge what values are right in a home, when you don't even have values yourself? Where's the father in your home?

    Hummm, Bristol I do believe you are not a great person to be giving parenting advice! And if you're basing your agruement on "not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage" you can go back to the time where people thought Earth was flat, people drove horses & carriage, and no new technology! Obviously you know the world is changing & evolving, so before you try to slam someone for wanting people to have happiness; why don't you consider WHO our President is & what he stands for. Maybe if you can't follow, I mean CHANGE!!

    I for one am all for same sex marriages. Who are we to tell someone that their happiness is wrong?? I hope that one day they legalize same sex marriages. I applaud Obama!!

    Like mother, like daughter. Bristol is selling herself in any form or fashion just like Sarah, to make that money. Talk about some successful capitalists- all body and no brains. See how far they’re willing to go for the cash at

  • Sammie

    Well said! People like this are what's wrong with the world, who the hell decided she and her family should run the world? Society would go back in time with them in the white house.

  • dullstar

    Who is this skank to give such an opinion? Where is YOUR baby's father Bristol? Oh right... he's out getting another girl knocked up while you act as if you're on some sort of moral pedastal. Get a clue you ignorant child. Maybe if you actually went to school and got a decent education instead of laying around with your legs open, your opinion would matter.

  • Sammie

    She should talk she is an un wed teenage mother with a father who from what we here does not want to be apart of his kids life!. So tell me Bristol if you are so big on family ideals where are yours?! You say follow the bible and all that jazz but you didnt why should you be telling people to do other wise?
