    A 14-year-old girl named “Sarah” asked lawmakers in Maryland on Tuesday to vote against marriage equality for her birthday.
    Testifying before Maryland’s Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee, Sarah said it “would be the best birthday present ever if you would vote no on gay marriage.”
    “I really feel bad for the kids who have two parents of the same gender,” the girl explained. “Even though some kids feel like it’s fine, they have no idea of what kind of wonderful experiences they miss out on. I don’t want any more kids to get confused about what’s right and OK.”


    “People have the choice to be gay, but I don’t want to be affected by their choice,” Sarah continued. “People say they were just born that way, but I’ve met really nice adults who did change.”
    “So, please vote no on gay marriage.”
    The New Civil Rights Movement’s David Badash pointed to Sarah’s home schooling as possible source of her opposition to equal rights for gay men and lesbians.
    “This is the kind of ludicrous stupidity that comes when children are home schooled,” he wrote. “[B]y and large, home schooled kids are subject to an education of their parents’ making and that means they can be brainwashed like this 14-year-old.”
    “While we’re at it, how is it even possible that this 14-year old was allowed to testify? Who arranged this? What value does her testimony have, since she wasn’t raised by a same-sex couple?” Bash added. “Perhaps they’ll have a 13-year-old weigh in on the healthcare debate next?”
    The Maryland Senate is expected to eventually approve the marriage equality bill. But things do not look as hopeful in the House of Delegates, where lawmakers rejected a similar bill last year.
    Listen to this audio from Maryland’s Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee, recorded Jan. 31, 2012.

    Her opinion shouldn't count any more than any other 14 year old's, and certainly not more than the opinion of children of gay couples. One of these days, this naive little girl will hopefully find out for herself that marriage equality doesn't take anything away from heteros. It's too bad this little twit is parroting the crap her parents teach her. They probably home-school her so that she won't meet any kids with gay parents. Blurgh.

    Fuck you Sarah.

    And how is denying rights to other people a birthday present? What a little idiot. Maybe next year when she turns 15 they can roll back the civil rights act for her.

    She's only 14. I thought stupid things at that age too (ok nothing like this, but still..) but then I grew up. I hope she does too. It will be difficult if that's what her parents keep telling her but maybe she will see how wrong she is one day.

    I just feel bad that she's been so brainwashed. Hopefully she gets a chance to step out and live in the real world some day.

    Aw, how cute, a 14 year old who thinks she knows everything. Shut up you little twit and come back when you actually experienced how the real world works. I guarantee you that a lot of things are not what your mommy tells you when learning things at the school of the dining room table.

    Also, there were no dinosaurs on Noah's Ark and the Grand Canyon is much older than your 'science' book tells you.

    Good question. She's someone's 14 year old puppet parroting back what she's heard others say. Once she grows up, matures, and maybe gets an education, I wonder if she'll be embarrassed that she threw herself out there to be a mouthpiece for someone's agenda.

    this!
    if she were 10 i'd cut her some slack, but at 14 you can think for yourself.



    i also totally agree with this:

    “This is the kind of ludicrous stupidity that comes when children are home schooled,” he wrote. “[B]y and large, home schooled kids are subject to an education of their parents’ making and that means they can be brainwashed like this 14-year-old.”
