Are you a young woman who sometimes watches movies with lesbian relationships? Do you consider yourself lesbian or bisexual? Well, let me tell you, you might be wrong. It's probably just the "girl on girl movies," you've been watching. At least if you believe Pat Robertson, America's creepy old uncle everyone wishes would stop coming to family functions.
As with most of Robertson's rambling insanities, this one was captured by Right Wing Watch in response to a "concerned" parent who wrote in about her 21 year old adult daughter:
While I have to admit I am pleased that the daughter isn't being kicked out of the house, considering how big of an issue that is when it comes to LGBT+ youth, everything else reads like your typical evangelical bullshit. She was raised in church, you say? There are LGBT+ individuals who are active Christians. She's always been feminine, you say? Let's talk about femme erasure.
So what does Uncle Pat have to say about this? Oh, just that she's probably not homosexual at all. She just needs to recognise her straightness. Any homosexual feelings are probably an illusion... Oh, yeah, and she might have been molested. Because if we're going to talk about mistaken homosexuality, we've got to devalue both valid sexualities and sexual abuse victims.
She needs somebody to help her get her identity straight. She may not be right in this, she may have thought she has a crush on some older girl along the way and she's actually homosexual when she's not, I don't know. Why is she that way? Was she molested when she was younger?
Terry Meeuwsen, Robertson's handler (presumably she exists to make sure he doesn't hurt himself or embarrass the brand? Thanks for that image, Kelly!), lamented that people are "telling kids to explore, it's crazy." And that's when Pat laid the truth on us:
Young women are getting the gay from "girl on girl movies" and the horror is that straight women are doing the acting!
They're getting straight actresses to play lesbians and straight men to play homosexuals and if you say anything against homosexuality you are just hooted out of court....You need to love your daughter and give her a chance to work this out because if she gets deeper and deeper in it, sooner or later she is going to be disillusioned and say, 'this is wrong, I want to come out of it.
Or, she's going to realise that her sexual identity is valid, explore her sexuality, be proud of who she is, and enjoy a whole lot of lady fucking along the way.
