Whoopi Goldberg thinks that our public school administrators need to spend some time watching Animal Planet. Joy Behar wants to know why anyone wouldn’t like this true story about creatures taking care of each other. Sherri Shepard displays an astonishing degree of unexamined discomfort about gay people.
These are exactly the conversations people need to be having. Parents who believe that they can exert control over how and when their child understands that some children have two daddies or two mommies need to gently be told the truth. This is part of the world as it is. The only reason it would ever be disturbing to a child is if you make it disturbing.
