As the Bathroom War ™ rages on here in America, Barack Obama has been overseas trying to convince the British people that they should stay in the European Union, even though the majority don’t want to. However, during a town hall with the British people, he dropped a massive bombshell about his daughters that has people scratching their heads.
If you remember, Obama has repeatedly said that his position on same-sex marriage has “evolved” from when he was opposed to it prior to running for the highest office in our country. Well, apparently there’s actually a plausible explanation for it – his daughters.
You may be wondering how they may have helped him change his views, which is a valid question, and he explained it while speaking with the Brits. While bad-mouthing the ignorance of Americans on the issue, he seemingly admitted that his own daughters were gay.
No, seriously. He did.
Below is an excerpt from the Huffington Post about his speech [emphasis mine]:
The president said that he initially didn’t think the labels for same-sex couples really mattered as long as they had the same rights as heterosexuals. Sasha and Malia helped him see why that wasn’t the case.
“I have to confess my children generally had an impact on me,” he said during a town hall in London. “People I loved who were in monogamous same-sex relationships explained to me what I should have understood earlier, which is it was not simply about legal rights but about a sense of stigma, that if you’re calling it something different it means that somehow it means less in the eyes of society.”
Okay, doesn’t that sound to you like he said his two daughters were in “monogamous, same-sex relationships”? Yeah it does me too, especially since he didn’t seem to clarify that he was speaking of anyone else other than his daughters.
While this could be a simple misinterpretation from Obama not thoroughly explaining himself, we also have to remember that he always says exactly what he wants to say. Granted, in the grand scheme of things this really doesn’t mean much, but it still offers some insight to the First Family and why they seemed so happy about the Supreme Court case inventing the right to gay marriage.
So happy, in fact, they decided to light the White House up with rainbow colors to poke us in the eye about it.
