Perez Hilton Doesn’t Want Son To Be Gay!
The Blogger Refuses To Involve Son In Flamboyant Hobbies!
#GROAN! Okay, seriously where to begin? This next story has all of the ingredients: Gay children, Same-sex parents, and gossip queen, Perez Hilton; to cause a stir. First, let me preface this article by stating I actually respect Hilton for his hustle. Hilton started off his career with a bang. Following around celebrities in Hollywood then gossiping about them? Genius. Putting them on a blog– which was virtually unknown – or not popular – brilliant! Connecting himself to one of the most powerful last names of the early 2000s by calling himself Hilton – you’re an evil mastermind. Seriously, he’s truly soared above and beyond in the Entertainment world. There was a point where Hollywood was literally treating him with credibility; as well they should have. If he wasn’t so controversial and calmed himself down; I think he may be a lot bigger than he is. I’m not saying he’d have his own show or anything, that was never in his cards. But, I could see him as a regular judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race, something like that. I completely prefer him over someone like Andy Cohen, who does exactly what Hilton has already accomplished- but bigger bucks led Cohen to a bigger platform so he could do it better…and is a smidge more attractive. That’s just life. I digress…
One of the many reasons Hilton continues to receive eye rolls and lit torches in his comment section – wait, why don’t we have a lit torch emoji yet?! – is because he is constantly throwing wrenches into the LGBTQ community. He is super visible – dare I say mainstream – and knows how to throw a punch to upset anyone. It’s his schtick as much as hot topics are to Wendy Williams. This time, he’s posted a video claiming he doesn’t want his son to be gay. Which now is causing an uproar because as we’re all aware, being gay isn’t a choice!
Anyway, Hilton goes on to mention he refuses to enroll his 5-year-old son in a dance class…because the boys who are enrolled tend to end up being gay. He somehow backtracks, telling he will love his son no matter what, but until his son demands to be in the creative realm, he’s going to stray him away from it in fear of growing up flamboyant. I cannot argue with Hilton, because I’m not a parent. I’ll definitely say I’m listening, but I can’t help but feel a parent shapes their child’s world: If you can afford to show your child everything, why wouldn’t you?
How do you feel about Hilton’s beliefs?
