You are the mastermind behind the world being such a “bad place,” not the movie. If you don’t want your children to be exposed to this, you are setting them up for a life full of judgment, close-mindedness and incapacity to make true friends.

I realize there are religious practices and beliefs that are totally against gays and transgender people, but don’t blindfold your kids to the different types of love, people and choices that make up our Earth. We all walk on the same ground.

I am by no means gay; I am straighter than straight could be. But, after going away to college and opening my eyes a little bit, I have realized that most gay people are actually harmless and would do just about anything for anyone. They are not pedophiles, they do not want to hurt you, they are not trying to brainwash you into becoming gay (newsflash; most are born that way) and they sure as hell are not judging you for being straight.

In case you have lived under a rock for the past twenty years, let me fill you in on what this movie is trying to do. First of all, the main character, Dory, is voiced over by Ellen DeGeneres. I don’t know if you are aware, but Ellen is a lesbian. She has not let her sexual preference and the negative opinions and beliefs of society stop her from changing the world. She is not just gay; she is proud, successful, selfless, loved, intelligent, hilarious and world-renowned. She has written books, has a show that people worship and watch every day of the week, she has been in movies, given away billions of dollars of her fortune and she speaks openly about her love life. All of which I think is awesome. It makes her happy, so she should talk about it.

I am just curious as to why you are so worried about the gay couple. Do you think they are going to throw in some gay porn? Are the two gay women going to be protesting for their rights? Will they be talking about their sexuality? NO. For crying out loud, it is a children’s movie. Disney’s Pixar is modern, up-to-date and just trying to open the tiny, fresh minds that will be watching to the many different family types of the world. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

What if one day your child makes a friend who has two mommies and wants to go over to their house to play? Are you going to be that parent who stops them and doesn’t tell them why? All of their other friends will be allowed to go play. They won’t grow up thinking that being gay is so wrong and disgusting like your children. They will make friends based on their personalities and character- not their sexual preferences.

You know, I feel bad for you. I feel bad that you haven’t gotten with the times yet. I feel bad that you haven’t been able to open your eyes, heart and mind to a large portion of great people in the world. I personally love meeting great people and hearing their stories, whether they are gay or not. They are genuinely happy and have had to overcome a lot in order to show their happiness off to the world.

So, don’t take your kids to that movie if that is what will help you sleep at night. Let them be completely speechless when they see two men holding hands in public and are filled with a thousand questions at once. Let them be that bully on the playground who makes fun of the girl who dresses like a boy. Let them laugh and point at the man wearing a dress in a store. You are the parent. You are the one who sheltered them, so you are the one who is going to be slapped in the face by humanity and the people who have already accepted the hundreds of types of people in this world. Don’t expose them to the beauty of freedom of choice and the uncountable amounts of positivity that Ellen DeGeneres brings to this world. They will hopefully learn to be open minded on their own, because it doesn’t look like you will be an influence.

Enjoy your popcorn and don’t choke on it when you see the gay couple.

Prayers your way

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
