Why is TMZ publishing Willow Palin’s Facebook page?

This morning I saw a news story about Sarah Palin’s daughter Willow. She wrote some homophobic slurs on her Facebook page. This is appalling. It is appalling that we even know about this. Who released this information to the press. Sadly when young people post on Facebook they feel they are only talking to their friends. They foolishly believe it is a conversation between friends, but sadly that is not the case. Some will try to use the words of her daughter as an indictment against Sarah Palin and that is wrong. All I can say is if you have a teen on Facebbok advise them to be very careful.

Both comments and trackbacks are currently closed.

    How can you NOT blame Sarah Palin and her husband for what their daughter wrote? Kids don’t just create opinions of their own, they are conditioned by their parents when they are 16 years old. It’s not really a stretch to link the two together. They were arguing about a dumb television show and Willow was the one to FIRST start throwing around the “faggot” and “fat ass” and “don’t be gay”. She is a prime example of why Anti-Gay bullying is thriving now. Those words are not funny and they carry a lot of weight when spoken in the context she used. I understand that she is 16 years old and it seems a little harsh for her to have to be cut down the way she is on most blogs and news stories, but if she didn’t want this to happen, she should have kept her mouth shut. Plain and simple. She was throwing around the “faggot” like it was an ordinary word in her vocabulary. It’s so sad to see the ignorance so blatantly in our youth.

      Advocate, clearly you do not have children, or if you do they are not teens. They have a mind of their own, and a vocabulary to match. My teen uses language I do not advocate and didn’t teach him. He talks to his elders with great respect, and he addresses his peers in ways I never would believe if I han’t seen it myself. Regardless of how you feel about it, the current generation says things like “that’s so gay” with great regularity.

      As far as anti-gay bullying, I would hazard a comment that it may also be a backlash to the forceful imposition of the “gay is a-okay” agenda by the Left, by Hollywood, by the politically correct, and everyone else who has a vested interest in undermining traditional marriage and/or people who hold religious beliefs that do not say that “gay is a-okay”. Tolerance would dictate that people would respect the beliefs of those on the opposite side of them, but sadly tolerance is defined as “us on the Left get to dictate what YOU will believe”.

    You know the biggest problem for me with this is we are reading a child’s Facebook page. Her language is offensive, but I go back to my original premise this page should never have been made public. We don’t know if this is the langauage spoken around their house. Teens have there only world and many parents would be shocked to hear and see some of the things their children write and say. I blame Sarah Palin for what she says I am not going to crucify her over this one.

    Depending on her privacy preferences settings, her posts are “public” for anyone to read.
