Readers Respond to Bristol Palin Bashing Obama’s Support of Gay Marriage
In a blog post, the 21-year-old single mother said, “we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview.” Bristol, who is the daughter of former Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin, had a son at the age of 17, with her then-boyfriend Levi Johnston. The two had a very rocky relationship, but ultimately broke up after trying to make things work, and the two do not parent their 3-year-old son Tripp together.
Celebuzz took the debate to our Facebook page, where some agreed with her viewpoints, but many called Bristol out on the idea of a child growing up in a two parent home, when she is a single mother herself.
Joey W. III said: The girl who had a child out of wedlock? Glass houses …
Lisa Burnett R. said: HER kid doesn’t live in a mother/father home. I am so sick of hypocrites.
Bridgette L. said: if kids do better in a home with a mother and father then shes saying her kid is screwed cus her baby daddy dont want nothing to do with her! Raising kids isnt about a mommy and daddy its about ppl who love that child no matter what gender!!!! Marriage equality for all!!!!!!!!
Bobbie G. said: Kids do better in a mother/father home?? Yeah Bristol that’s why you’re a teen mom! Oops! What happened there, mommy and daddy didn’t raise you right? Just saying.
Fiona T. said: Cannot believe a 21 year old woman thinks like that in this day and age. What a horror.
Colleen L. said: kids r better with parents who love them and it doesnt matter if its 2 mums, 2 dads or a mum and a dad as long as they get love x
Niki G. said: wow, because she is so high and mighty getting knocked up outside of wedlock and getting divorced at her age. Hypocrite indeed. (btw, i have nothing against anyone having children outside of wedlock, but it’s people like her I do have a problem with)
Chrisii A. said: honestly i agree with her but dude someone else should’ve said it like someone who didn’t have a child out of wedlock this just makes her look hypocritical
Dana S. said: I honestly don’t get why people have such a problem with this. Children should be in a loving home wether its Man and man, Woman and Woman, or Man and woman. Regardless of the gender of both parents, the right way to raise a child is to give it love and care.
Heather Marie B. said: i may not have voted for obama but i do agree with that. you know same sex marriages can be just as great of bein parents an non same sex marriages. an its good to see a lot of ppl on here not to stick up for her. she does have room to talk!
What do you think? Keep the debate going in the comments!
