Rush Limbaugh asks how parents can explain Mayor Pete kissing his husband to their children

Rightwing radio host Rush Limbaugh questioned whether out Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s relationship to his husband could be explained “to your children.”

“So I saw a political ad, where Mayor Pete, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, going on and on and on and on and on, about how parents in America are struggling to explain President Trump to their children,” Limbaugh said.

“And then I happen to see this,” he said, holding up a photo of Buttigieg kissing his husband for his video feed subscribers, saying that Pete kisses Chasten “frequently.”

“You think — natural conclusion — so he says Trump causes problems for parents, what about that?”

Good to see rightwing bigots are joining in regarding their "concern" about "the children". I was getting concerned myself they were just going to let others take the wheel. Now that they are "speaking out" maybe, just maybe, people will be able to see this for what it is HOMOPHOBIA and STRAIGHT PRIVILEGE (heterosexism)!

1. "I don't know... how can we explain you kissing Trump's ass frequently?"

You gotta wonder at any parent who would take parenting advice from Rush Limbaugh.

"Tell your kids... smoking doesn't cause cancer!"
"Tell your kids... oxy doesn't cause hearing loss!"

2. Pretty simple: "People kiss *each other* when they *both* decide that they want to"

People confused by this are operating on a level that even children would find fucking confusing in it's obtuseness.

6. His FemiNazi nonsense explains his THREE divorces (so far).

It doesn't explain why they married him in the first place.

Elton John played at his fourth wedding. How does Rush explain Elton's husband?

8. Well it is pretty damned easy, OxyRush old boy

When two people love each other, they kiss. It is perfectly normal behavior. I know, Rush, that your life is one of hate. Your loss.

9. No need to jump through this hoop.

There really is nothing to explain.

OK, *if* the hypothetical child asks why are they kissing, all the answers here so far are pretty good.

But would a child really ask such a question unless prompted?

10. If I were a parent...

I would be far more concerned about how to explain to my kids what a "Rush Limbaugh" is (along with why to avoid him at all costs) than explaining why Pete is kissing another man. And, no, it's not because I'm gay myself, but, because Rush Limbaugh is a hideous sack of evil and it frightens me living on the same planet as him. I'd be even more frightened to have a child on the same planet as him.

Or, to put it another way: STFU, Limbaugh.
