Husbands And Husbands

Update: The video has been locked by its owner. It's gone viral, and I guess they were getting publicity they did not want. At a family gathering, a young boy asked for help washing his hands. His uncles (I think) were trying out a new camera and caught a moment of truth as the boy tried to figure out their relationship. "I know about wives and husbands! You're husbands and husbands?! So that means you love each other!" From the mouths of babes we hear the truth. This is the what the Religious Right fears?

Andrew Sullivan and a reader commented as well.

If only the word would invite us, we could play. So many of us want to.

Bummer. Private video.

of course the RR fears it. because in their minds, the next "step" is that we start "recruiting."

i cannot imagine why we would recruit a life that involves so many people hating us for what we cannot control.

From Rodgers & Hammerstein. South Pacific.

You've got to be taught
To hate and fear,
You've got to be taught
From year to year,
It's got to be drummed
In your dear little ear
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught to be afraid
Of people whose eyes are oddly made,
And people whose skin is a diff'rent shade,
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught before it's too late,
Before you are six or seven or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate,
You've got to be carefully taught!
