Super handsome African-American dads Kordale and Kaleb weren’t very surprised when people threw racist and homophobic shade at them for posting a photo of their morning routine with two of their three daughters on Instagram.
While the couple acknowledged in a statement to the Huffington Post that what they do in the comfort of their home is “no one’s business,” they also recognized that they knew the photo might get attention and they couldn’t go off the rails just because a bunch of assholes disagree with their lifestyle.
The only thing that surprises me is that common situations like this continue to shock others and are still considered “different,” even in the eyes of total jerk bigots with way too much time on their hands.
Here’s a portion of their very well-spoken and well-said response to the backlash:
The picture was put out on social media for an opinion so we can’t be mad when people give just that: an opinion. People tend to think that gay people cannot raise their children to be heterosexuals. Instead, they have derogatory thoughts of us “tainting” our children or “confusing them” with what society sees deems as wrong an unmanly because we’re gay. But this is all comical because people forget where a lot of gays come from: a heterosexual household.
All we should see are two people who love their children and are doing the best to make their lives worthwhile, which is all any parents – of any gender, sexuality, background and color – can do.
