I thought this was a joke before finding out…we are so terribly ill as a normal, God-fearing society…tolerating stuff like this is why Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed…
Actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson told Ellen DeGeneres on Monday that he and his husband, actor Justin Mikita, are raising their 8-month-old son Beckett to be “gay until he decides to be straight,” and showed video of himself singing to the baby about drag queens.
Explaining to DeGeneres the complexity of discovering the personality of a new child, Ferguson said, “It’s a new person in your life, and just like anyone else new that comes into your life, it’s like, you’ve gotta figure out if you like them. It takes a little bit of time.”
“[Fortunately], I really do like him. He’s a really sweet boy. And it’s been a lot of fun. I’ve been wanting to become a dad for a long time,” adding that he plays “a lot of show tunes” for Beckett.
“We’re raising him gay until he decides he’s straight,” the “Modern Family” actor said, prompting laughter from DeGeneres and the audience. “On the way back from the hospital, we played Britney Spears because that was what Justin demanded he listen to. That was his first exposure to music.”
“It’s a lot of singing. I’m writing a lot of songs for him. You know, everything has a song,” Ferguson explained, offering the example of a show tune based on a dirty diaper.
