AUSTRALIA: American Daughter Of Lesbian Parents Takes Her Anti-Gay Marriage Crusade To Canberra [VIDEO]

Katy Faust was the darling of US hate groups in the run-up to the Obergefell ruling and having failed at home, she’s now taking her anti-gay marriage crusade to Australia’s federal government. Last night she appeared on ABC News there:

American Katy Faust was raised by her lesbian mother and her partner and she now runs a blog called asktheBigot, which is fiercely opposed to gay marriage. She became a Christian in high school and was concerned by the plight of children. She is in Canberra to lobby the Federal Government against gay marriage and she told Lateline why. She loves her lesbian mother and her partner: “While my mother was a fantastic mother and most of what I do well as a mother myself I do because that’s how she parented me, she can’t be a father. Her partner, an incredible woman — both of these women have my heart — cannot be a father either.” She says children of gay parents are pressured into supporting them: “There’s several children that have contacted me even since I started writing about this, saying ‘I agree with you, but I’ll never come out and speak about this publicly because my relationship with my parent is too tenuous’.” When she became Christian she struggled with the Bible’s teachings on sexuality: “Because there’s a fierce protectiveness I think that all children have for their parents, but what I was delighted to find when I read Scripture is that God has an incredible heart for the orphan and that he’s very concerned with the plight of children.”

Faust, you may recall, was cited in nutjob Robert Oscar Lopez’s amicus brief to SCOTUS.

  • Sam_Handwich

    So she wants to outlaw single parenting?

    • Marc

      Don’t go bringing logic to an idiot convention.

    • metrored

      She wants Mommy and Daddy to get back together.

      • skeptical_inquirer

        It’s like she’s five and never grew the hell up.

    • Their position would require that and it would also require banning divorce, but of course you never hear them call for either, rather they only ever use this argument to attack gay couples. That’s the dead giveaway that their argument is not actually about “children’s rights” but rather is aimed at gay people, if it was a serious argument they wouldn’t only be looking to use it against gay couples.

    • vorpal

      Only if the single parent is gay.

    • Treg Brown

      “While my mother was a fantastic mother and most of what I do well as a mother myself I do because that’s how she parented me, she can’t be a father. Her partner, an incredible woman — both of these women have my heart — cannot be a father either.”

      As the son of a lesbian and gay couple who are both partnered (FOUR parents, Christmas bankrupts me!) I think she could be a bit more grateful that she has loving parents, and wasn’t shot dead by a dad or mom who thought the world was going to end, or that not being able to open carry a gun into Target was a good indicator or end times.

      Sanctimonious Bitch.

      • wmforr

        Ah, but Treg, you had a father–two fathers, in fact. She whines, because of what she missed by not having a father. Perhaps she should ask Josh Duggar’s kids.

        • Treg Brown

          Exactly! Or not having brothers. Wonder how all kids that lose a parent to death or accident feel about this. Is it the surviving spouse’s duty to get remarried just so a kid can have what Katy considers the “ideal” (it’s not) family upbringing?

          She needs to take a fuckin seat.

        • Dean Cameron

          Actually, she has admitted elsewhere that her father had joint custody of her, and paid for half of her education.
          She has moved to another State, and continues the relationship with both her parents and her stepmother, albeit long distance.

      • skeptical_inquirer

        what I despise is that she blames the parents who actually stuck around and RAISED her damn ass but seems to put her deadbeat absent father on a pedestal who abandoned her. She is stupid and will probably marry some cheater abusive fuckwit and refuse to divorce him even if her children want her to.

        • joshie

          Her mothers must feel so betrayed.

          “You did a great job raising me and I love you, but neither of you had a penis so everything is terrible and now I’m trying to make sure no one remotely like you can ever get married. XOXO!”

        • DesertSun59

          She offers literally nothing of value to our species. Nothing.

          • Judas Peckerwood

            Or to any species, to be honest.

        • Goodboy

          This is just a copy of Robert Oscar Lopez. They got allot of mileage out of that shithead. At least this one’s mom is still alive and hopefully will speak up and formally disown her while she’s at it.

      • gaymex

        How little she actually loves the lesbians who raised her…they may have loved her, but her homophobia has prevented her from loving them. She owes everything to those two women and yet she dismisses them with phrases that make her sound like she loves and respects them…lip service to make it seem that she has an actual heart…what a joke.

        • RoFaWh

          When a pseudo-xtian refers to “loving the sinner, but hating the sin”, remember that in their vocabulary hate is spelled l-o-v-e. The reason for this? They’re dishonest fucking cowards who won’t admit that they harbor irrrational hatred and prejudice against <sinner category of the week> so they smokescreen with “love”.

          The silver lining to this sad state of affairs is that at least they’ve arrived at a sufficiently perceptive understanding of themselves to know that their “love” is no such thing; and to be embarassed by this.

          Making a prejudice socially unacceptable is the first step in making the target of the prejudice fully acceptable.

    • John Masters

      Can’t reason someone out of a position they didn’t reason themselves into in the first place.

      • KarenAtFOH

        I love this.

      • Jeffrey

        well said

    • joshie

      Divorce should clearly be outlawed. After all, there is VASTLY more evidence that divorce harms children than there is that same-sex parents harm children. I mean, if anyone with half a brain looks at Regnerus’ “research” they see that’s much closer to what the data say than what Regnerus claims the data say.

      So if you ban SSM on the basis she is giving, it’s not a jump to banning divorce (or single parents), it’s a small, dainty step.

  • Her mother can’t be a father and her mother’s partner can’t be a father. Sounds like she wanted a gay couple for parents instead of a lesbian couple. You don’t need this kind of hateful bullshit, Australia. Pack her ass off back to the States.

    • Marc

      We don’t have to take her back, do we?

      • Whether she makes it back is up to the airliner.

  • Mike in Texas

    My apologies to Australia. Just remember, when you worry them they come screeching. You must be doing something right.

  • robirob

    Christianity poisoned her mind and gives her lots of lucrative career opportunities as a spokesperson for bigotry.

  • AtticusP

    Dear Katy,

    Please do all of us Americans a favor, and STAY down under.

    Sorry, Australia, but we already have enough of these assholes here.

    • Harlan92

      At least you don’t have an asshole as the head of your governent right now. If we have Abbott you can take this one back, thanks.

    • Do Australia a favour, Katie, and stay at home. If we feel any need for nutcases, we’re quite capable of growing our own.

      • Reality.Bites

        Ooh, is Tony Abbott going to impregnate Julia Gillard?

        • No chance. Miss Gillard is against patriarchy in any shape or form.

    Your god gave you two parents, a supportive and stable home and you’re bitching that one of them didn’t have the right genitals?

    • Suzy

      They made her a Rosie the Riveter doll instead of buying her a Barbie. It was sheer child abuse.

      • popebuck1

        All I wanted was a Ballerina Barbie for my birthday. And what did they get me? MAL-I-BU Barbie. That’s not what I wanted. That’s not who I was. I was a ballerina! Graceful! Delicate!

        They had to go.

    • Of course. How can she have a proper, normal Oedipus Electra complex if neither of her parents has a dick?

      • Todd20036

        Well, one of her parents was a dick. Does that count?

        • No. He has to be around so she can have erotic fantasies about him.

          But snark aside, she does show all the signs of having an unresolved Electra complex, as does her friend Robert Oscar.

          • RaygunsGoZap

            SOMEBODY PHOTOSHOP ROL’S FACE ON THIS RIGHT NOW GODDAMITT!!

      • wmforr

        Just to be pedantic, I will point out that what you are referring to is an Electra Complex.

        • Yes, you’re right. I just realised that. Post corrected.

          • RaygunsGoZap

            You just got Aggamemnowned!

          • 🙂

  • Mark

    I understand her point – and she presents it without much malice…..but what i also hear is the best way to ensure kids have fathers is to ban gay marriage. And that is more than short sighted. Should we count the number of kids born of un-wed parent(s)???…or how many fathers disappeared???

    Her point is only applicable to gay couples who have children via options other than adoption. And while i can’t dismiss it entirely as foo-faa….it singles out gay couples who choose to conceive via IVF vs straight couples who chose the exact same procedure.

    Touchy subject!

  • Michael Rush

    ” When she became Christian she struggled with the Bible’s teachings ”
    if you’re not struggling with the bible you’re not reading it right .

    As to the book called the bible, it is blasphemy to call it the Word of God. It is a book of lies and contradictions and a history of bad times and bad men. [ Thomas Paine, writing to Andrew Dean August 15, 1806 ]

    note : i looked at her website and it is ridiculous ! people clearly explain things to her in the comments which she ignores , she has that problem were anything she doesn’t know she doesn’t want to hear .

    • It is blasphemy even in Biblical terms. The Word of God is not a mere book, but a Person, as the first chapter of the Gospel of John makes perfectly clear:
      “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God……. and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory…”

  • Mister Don

    Maybe she and Lopez should get married–think of the dinner table chats!

    • Reality.Bites

      I think that (believe it or not) Lopez is already married to a woman.

      • Yes he is, he isn’t gay just very effeminate and he took that effeminacy, and perhaps an experiment with someone of the same sex as a youth, and created this ever changing narrative in which he was very sexually active with the same sex and now is exclusively in a heterosexual relationship. His story about when he first had sex and with whom has changed so many times, and conveniently enough it always matches up to the issue he is fighting, that isn’t believable at all.

    • Stev84

      She is already married. To a pastor of course.

  • JT

    When she became Christian she struggled with the Bible’s teachings on sexuality

    She didn’t bother about the anti-female stuff in the book.

    • skeptical_inquirer

      If she followed the Bible, she would have to be quiet and not speak out.

      • Friday

        I think there’s a way they can read that where they can’t speak up around *Christian* men but everyone else is beneath consideration that way.

  • seththayer

    How can she call herself a Christian when she has pierced her ears and is wearing gold?

  • Gigi

    Faust’s “argument” — My parents split up when I was young. My mom met a woman and fell in love. I was raised by my mom and her lesbian partner. I had a GREAT childhood. My dad was MIA and had nothing to do with me. I’m against same-sex marriage because my dad was a dick.

    Didn’t make sense before. Had no impact on SSM ruling in America. Still doesn’t make sense now.

    • b

      It really is crazy. She had a great experience, but wants to damage other same-sex households. Nuts.

    • Gerry Fisher

      Even if we validate her “I miss my dad” feelings, stopping same-sex marriage won’t prevent that from happening. There’s no way to prevent it, really. I had a dad whose body was present at the dinner table during my entire growing up years, but he was emotionally absent. I “miss my dad!” too…until I came to terms with it and let it go, back in my early 30s.

      (And, phobes, before you go down the “absent father, overbearing mother” road, just understand that I have a straight brother and sister.)

      • RoFaWh

        I had a dad whose body was present at the dinner table during my entire growing up years, but he was emotionally absent.

        Oh, you too? I won’t go into the details, but suffice it to say that even today, almost 25 years since his death, I regularly curse him: that asshole! Liar, thief, narcissist, adulterer, you name it. Fortunately, not physically abusive by the time I came along.

        I once commented to my brother (who was the target of getting kicked around the house) that our family life would have been much better if the parental unit had split. His reply was astute, and worth repeating: “You don’t know that.” Food for thought.

        • Prixator

          We had quite similar fathers. Mine has been dead for almost 15 years. We were estranged for more than 15 years before that. Many people said to me “you will probably regret not having a relationship with your father” – but, since I never really had a meaningful relationship with him in the first place (he had girlfriends to visit evenings and weekends while still married to my mother), my only regret is not having a father really at all.

          Of course, my father’s philandering (which began before I was born – I was definitely not a “planned” child) made my mother very bitter and distant.

          I was never abused, but I was neglected. The one thing I do thank my parents for is for never brainwashing me into a religion. I don’t “believe” because I have never “believed”. I don’t think I could even force myself to “believe”.

    • Jeffrey

      If her dad abandoned her…as many do, then why not make her platform about how fathers need to be more responsible? No, it gets more publicity to be against the people that you admit are great people who raised you well. How fucked up is this woman? Just another example of how religion is a mental illness.

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen

  • Robert

    Apparently she wants to make it illegal to die. A father can’t die since a child deserves both a mother and a father.

    She is a selfish ingrate… I pity her poor moms. How hurt they must be.

  • oikos

    Katy has made a Faustian bargain for her 15 minutes of fame.

  • Robert

    Her mother can’t be a father, nor the partner (wife) of her mother. Okay, some kids don’t get a father. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they leave… Sometimes it’s best (the violent type I was raised by)…

    That is life lady. Be grateful; for what you did have. For what you did have was better than a single mother doing it alone.

    • Blake Jordan

      So this idiot advocates for the removal of children from loving “mother-father” homes, when one of the parents dies…

  • crewman

    How many millions and millions of kids are there who were raised by straight parents who could get up there and say they didn’t like their childhood or they didn’t approve of actions their parents took. This is a story of the dangers of relying on anecdotal stories. Do Oscar Lopez and Katy Faust represent a large trend or are they just representatives of the pool of children unhappy with their parents? How big is that group of unhappy children and is it larger than the group unhappy children of straight parents? As it turns out there is some research on that, and research shows on average children of same-sex parents are happier and more balanced than children of straight parents:

    you know… if i ignore the speaker and just look at the words, it’s the same script as ryan, brian, tony, etc.
    this script has failed.
    there is no new material.
    there is nothing new to bring to the table.
    you lose.

  • #1 Same sex parenting isn’t requiring that children lose a mother or a father to be in a household with same sex parents. If the gay couple is adopting then the child already is separated from their biological parents. If we are talking about a gay couple using ART’s then we are talking about a third party donor, not parent and you can’t lose a relationship if it never existed. She makes it sound like same sex parenting entails taking kids away from their heterosexual parents and giving them to same sex couples and that’s not even close to what is going on here.

    • wmforr

      Every once in a while someone on freeper public dot com will say of adoptive gay parents, “That is not their dhild! They STOLE someone else’s child!” (They love caps, and can’t figure out how to do italics.)

      What they don’t count on is some Conservanuts who happen to be adoptive children or parents taking offense–rather loudly–at that characterization of adoption.

  • TexasBoy

    Her parents must be so proud….not. I guess she glossed over the Honor Thy Mother and Thy Father commandment. Because she sure isn’t honoring her Mother.

  • Gustav2

    She is self-orphaned.

  • Princess Lardass

    Two words and one name: Zach Wahls.

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    So everything was fine until she was indoctrinated as a Christian. Maybe she should rethink which monkey-wrench got thrown into the cogs of her life.

    • Gerry Fisher

      mmm-hmmm!

  • #2 Katy Faust you do not have a well-founded, well grounded, convincing secular argument. All you did was jump on the “children rights” argument pushed by Robert Oscar Lopez and while they claim that it isn’t anti-gay conveniently enough it is only ever applied to gay people. You don’t see them saying that single parents shouldn’t be allowed to have kids, or allowed to adopt and yet that is exactly what their “every child has a right to a mother and a father” argument entails. Furthermore they also don’t push for a ban on divorce which their position would also entail, so what we have is an excuse to oppose same sex marriage and its clearly just that because they argument is only ever targeted at gay couples.

  • Ninja0980

    What an ungrateful bitch.
    Do us a favor Katy, quit talking about how much you love your mom and her partner and others like them.
    You sure as hell don’t or you wouldn’t be trying to keep them second class citizens.

  • Harlan92

    I wish she was asked how much she is getting paid for this Australian jaunt, because it’s obvious she’s in it purely for the money.

    • Less than the real hate-brigade super-stars ask for, that’s for sure. She’s what the late Frank Sinatra called a two-dollar broad.

  • Baltimatt

    Wait, didn’t her father for the most part abandon her when her parents divorced? And this is the reason she doesn’t want same-sex couples to marry?

  • Baltimatt

    Hate doesn’t age well.

  • #3 “I was outed by a gay blogger” yeah because she was posting under a variety of different names and attempting to sign onto amicus briefs using her fake names. If she wanted to remain anonymous then she needed to stay away from official legal fillings, you don’t get to join legal documents under a fake name without getting called out on it.

    Oh and the government interest in marriage goes well beyond reproduction, no one is buying that limited definition of the government interest in marriage.

  • metrored

    He really should have pressed he on the role of homosexuality in her parental loss. Does she think she would have been better off if her mother remained single? Does she think her mother should have divorced her father for a man? What about her mother marrying a woman makes this worse than her mother cohabitation with a woman?

    • Exactly, she makes it seem like same sex couples are striping kids away from their mother and father but in this case she wasn’t going to have her father even if her mom was single. Her own story doesn’t even support her point because yeah neither her mom or her partner was her dad but her dad left anyway, the ability of her mom’s to marry or not had no impact on that at all

  • The Professor

    Why haven’t we heard the other side of the story from her parents? Too classy to tell the truth about her maybe? Next time, leave orphans in foster care to wither and become wards of the state. Would that make this harridan happy?

  • GayOldLady

    My heart breaks for her parents, the 2 women who raised her. I know they must be heartbroken.

    • Paula

      Can you imagine how this must make them feel? I feel bad for them, too.

  • Ninja0980

    One more thing Katy, banning same sex couples from marrying won’t make people who don’t want to be parents stick around.
    A couple of days after marriage equality in NY failed in 09, my friend gave birth to her son.
    A son whose father made it clear he wanted nothing to do with.
    As he had access to her,mine and other people’s facebooks at that time, he saw the news about marriage equality failing to pass.
    For some odd reason, this news didn’t make him want to marry my friend or be any kind of father.
    That scenario only happens in the fantasy world folks like Faust and others live in.
    People who don’t want to be parents aren’t going to be and stopping same sex couples from marrying won’t change that.

      That’s also David Blankenhorn’s pet peeve. He came around on marriage equality, but he still thinks that if the state could just force couples to stay together, all of society’s ills would magically go away. Total idiot.

  • leo77

    Well at least now in Australia she’s being open about how her thinking and opposition to gay marriage is shaped by her faith. Here in US she and cohorts played that angle down. Things were just fine until the Bible and no doubt her co-religionists suggested otherwise.

    • Reality.Bites

      And the faith angle is less likely to go over well there.

      • Don’t forget that Seppos ordering us how to run our country don’t either, no matter what their shtick is.

  • Rex

    Does she sign the Mother’s Day Card, “from your Bigot Daughter”?

  • The bottom line is that there is no such thing as a right to a mother and a father. The parent(s) may leave, the parent(s) may die, the parent(s) may be unfit to parent, the parent(s) may have not intended to have a child and may put them up for adoption right away, or the parent may not be able to support another child. Whatever the case may be there are many reasons why a child may go up for adoption or lose a parent and at that point they clearly have no locked in right to their mother and father. Furthermore there is no such thing as a right to being born via biological sex only. people can be born via the use of Artificial reproductive technologies and these technologies cannot be a violation of the individual’s right, heck they wouldn’t even exist if these methods were not used.

    • wmforr

      Whenever a Republican candidate thinks he ends the debate by saying, “I believe every child deserves a mother and a father,” I wish the reporter would then ask, “So do you pledge not to send their fathers off to die in foreign wars?”

  • Stev84

    That bitch is just brain dead and brainwashed. She blames her moms for her father not wanting to have anything to do with her.

    She needs to get a grip. So her parents didn’t meet her expectations. Join the fucking club, sister. Personal experience tells me having a father is no guarantee of getting a dad you want.

    So, basically, what she’s admitting is: “I was perfectly happy as a child with two moms until I discovered Jeebus; then I realized that, even though I was happy, a book of misogynist paternalistic pontification told me I wasn’t.”

    Ok then.

  • goofy_joe

    Wait, she considers herself an orphan? Wow, that’s insulting to her parents. She can say she loves them all she wants, but her actions speak louder than her words. If I were her parents I don’t know if I could continue having a nice relationship with her.

    • zhera

      She is a christer. ‘Love’ does not mean the same to her as it does to us.

  • Hard2find

    If she needed a prick in her life, I will donate this one as long as she sits on it.

  • Cosmo Tupper

    Good thing she was raised to be successful despite her having gay parents, because she would not be welcome to mine nor my partners estate. She would be d*ad to me. No pressure sweetheart, just that your mom and mom are better at being parents than MOST het parents who could give a rats ass about their children. Children of gay parents are ALWAYS planned and the love shows. Gay parents NEVER give their unwanted up for adoption. However,children of straight parents are not always planned so they have to “learn” to love the idea of being parents or give them up for adoption. And the children of these happen-stance pregnancies are not always universally and unconditionally loved and adored. To be a gay parent requires great strides and expense, where as most hets can get pregnant for free and it’s easy as pie. Unless her parents mistreated her, she has turned her back on her parents and that is unforgivable.

  • tomfromthenews

    What a load of crap. There are many situations where both biological parents cannot be present. And she apparently loves her two moms. WTF?

    • Stev84

      Just Christian Love. Not to be confused with real love.

  • joshie

    Taking her scam overseas. Sorry, Australia, you don’t deserve this woman or your jackass of a PM.

    Gosh, she just LOVES her mother so much, and her partner. And she was raised well. But neither of them were a father ergo no one should get gay married. OK?

  • E. de Mas

    I’m the blogger who exposed her identity, and I apologise profusely to all the Australian people for inflicting her upon them, as I seem to get the blame for it in her interview. My response is here: https://justmerveilleux.wordpress.com/2015/08/13/my-sincere-apologies-to-the-people-of-australia-for-inflicting-katy-faust-upon-you/

      Hi Mr. M!

      • E. de Mas

        Have we met 🙂

        • joshie

          Not in person. I’m the Josh of Bruiser Blog.

          • E. de Mas

            I guessed as you got me here 🙂

  • Harley

    Ahhhh. Religion. Separating families from coast to coast. Maybe her mother should have followed bible teachings and stoned her for being a disobedient child.

  • A Big Sarcastic Fairy!

    Wow, I bet her parents are so proud. What piece of shit.

  • KQCA

    This WILL come home to her.

    Maybe fate caused her to be spared having a born-again Christian father like mine who was married to one woman like the bible says, and who, like bible characters, was a sociopathic pedophile who sacrificed his own son and raped his own daughter.

    I would have given anything to have grown up in the home this ungrateful bitch had.

    Wait until she has kids of her own. Just wait. Fate has a way.

  • DesertSun59

    This is typical. You see, if she were really all about a man/woman marriage she would have not gone to Australia, she would have stayed right in the US and done this:

    To wit. She would have petitioned the US gov’t to prevent any man or woman who is in the military and who has children from ever being forced to go into a war zone. You see, people who are FORCED into a war zone have an extremely high probability of DYING. Thus, if they die they leave their children either motherless or fatherless. The US gov’t is forcing married men and women into war zones due to the UCMJ. You have to follow orders, so the UCMJ is the law for military folks.

    But no. She’s decided that her RELIGIOUS values are more important. Her religion was invented by tribal Jews. She is not a tribal Jew. This isn’t the Bronze Age. Her religion has literally nothing to do with modern Western Civilization.

    She’s a true bigot and has absolutely no values to share with anyone. She’s a huge loser and I’m sorry she is blinded by her zealotry to see that she offers literally nothing of value to our species.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    I hope Karma runs over her Dogma

  • Bj Lincoln

    Her and all her ‘friends’ were raised by gay parents when equal marriage was illegal so what difference would it make if it was legal? We would still be raising our kids. I support any marriage when kids are involved. She is a nutjob.

  • Kissmagrits

    A Christianist conversion may be likened to a communicable disease that has yet to find a cure. There’s no vaccine yet, but maybe a new Jonas Salk will emerge soon.

  • Fyva Prold

    I wonder how long it will be before her husband is caught on Grindr or Craigslist. While she’s away.

  • The ABC’s headline for the story is “Ask the Bigot”.

    Which is a fair assessment of what most people here will think of her.

  • joe ho

    …..

  • joe ho

    remember “love” to a christer doesn’t mean what it does to most people.

    it was out of christian “love” that heretics were tortured and killed so they wouldn’t have to suffer so much in the next life. it was out of christian “love” that native american children were torn from their parents’ arms to be raised cut off from their own families and traditions.

    if a christer says “love” run the other way.

    even their “love thy neighbor” stuff is crap. do you really want glenn beck loving you the way he loves himself? or maggie gallagher? ick!

    christer “love” is a toxic brew of arrogant superiority posing as humility.

  • txstevo

    Telling that she uses the phrase “partner in crime” to describe her colleague. Freudian slip.

  • NancyP

    Yet another adult has “issues” with their parents – who knew?
    Your 15 seconds was up a long time ago, Katy.

  • Jan Wesselius

    See? This proves that gay parents can normal bigoted Christian.

  • Michael Hampton

    So wait. Her parents were great, but she is mad that one of them wasn’t a man? Millions upon millions of kids grow up with single mothers as their sole parent. She had TWO women who loved and cared for her. What a bitch!

  • Ogre Magi

    So christianity makes people turn against their parents…. How lovely

  • Eric in Oakland

    “She says children of gay parents are pressured into supporting them…”

    …children of gay Christian parents are pressured into supporting them…
    …children of gay single parents are pressured into supporting them…
    …children of gay interracial parents are pressured into supporting them…
    …children of gay elderly parents are pressured into supporting them…

    Hmmm…

  • James

    Shorter Katy: I blame my mother because my father was a dick. Not sure what kind of bargain this Faust has struck, but it stinks to high heaven.

  • Oh boo-fucking-hoo! So you were teased at school for having two mothers, grow up and get over it.

  • KnownDonorDad

    Thanks, Australia and Northern Ireland. You saved the United States from being dead last among the “Anglosphere” nations to adopt marriage equality. That’s quite enough now, though, you can stop.

  • TallBearNC

    Mistake number one that her mother’s did: let her get sucked into Christianity in high school. But with my kids I would’ve put a stop to that the instant it started. Straight people claim all the time that they have the rights to decide what religion their children will practice, and that their children can decide for their own sake when they are 18 years old. If I was this woman’s Parent, I would’ve stopped her indoctrination into Christianity right when it started in high school

  • TallBearNC

    ThiIs lady is basically crying she did not have a father… 90% of all children raised in America don’t have a father because of the high divorce rate – technically they still have a father but usually mothers get custody and fathers get to see the children once a month or twice a month and sometimes on the summers… So usually it’s the mother that does all the child-rearing anyway. Her statement that a child needs a mother and a father is false. What a child needs is a loving parent, loving parents, and a good foundation – and that can be provided by two fathers, two mothers, a single father, a single mother, or any combination of those 4

    I think there’s a lot more to this woman than just “finding Christianity in high school” I just don’t believe her when she keeps praising both of her parents… And if you noticed she does that a lot… She constantly reiterates how much she loves her lesbian mothers and how good they were and then she always follows it up with BUT

    …she’s compensating or hiding from something because if a child has two loving mothers, they don’t turn into a monster like this woman is… But then again look at this woman …. she is in her late 30s or 40s… She was probably born in the 1970s… Most gay people didn’t have relationships back then because people were so persecuted back then… So being a child of gay people in the 70s versus the 90s or later is a tremendously huge difference… She was probably teased and made fun of and call the lesbian herself… Among other things. Plus there’s no way her mothers were out in the 70s

    This woman should not be speaking for children of gay parents today because her experience is completely different from children of gay parents today because back in her day her parents would’ve been extremely ridiculed and would’ve had to stay in and played “straight” in order to keep their jobs etc. in the 1970s, and probably people in our high school found out that she had to mommies and bullied and tortured this woman incessantly until she was probably driven to Christianity… Nowadays schools and laws prevent this type of bullying so instances of this have been dramatically lower… And I don’t know where she gets that gay parents pressure their children into excepting gay people… Every gay parent I know is all about letting their child develop however they want to which is better than most straight people do… Most straight people insist on their son son becomes an athlete or their daughter become a model or whatever… No straight parents have very strict plans and agendas for their children whereas most gay parents just simply love their kids and are OK what ever path in life they take

    So this lady is about 30 years too late to be speaking about experiences for gay children… Or I should say maybe 30 years too early. We shouldn’t be talking to people who are gay parents in the 70s and listening to them. We should be listening to children who had gay parents in the 90s and the double zeros in the tens. I bet if we did we would get a complete opposite story from what this maniac is spouting. She honestly sounds like she got brainwashed by some Christian cult. Again she keeps saying how much she loves her parents and then she turns around and talks about her struggles becoming a Christian and learning how gay people are basically sinful and wrong… But she still loves her mothers anyway. Although I agree that most gay parents pretty much let their children choose their own path….this is one path I would’ve stopped my child from going down… And I’m sure if the Christian – I should say a diehard Christian read this they would probably freak out… Because I’m not bashing on Christianity… In fact my husband and mine’s best friend is a very very solid Protestant Christian but she does not believe that the Bible teaches that gay is wrong and she fully supports gay marriage so I have no problem with Christianity… I have a problem with the people who abuse Christianity and take it to the extreme and cause harm and hurt in the name of Christianity… And that’s exactly what this woman has done… Or I should say what someone has brainwashed her to do. Seeing this woman would be like listening to somebody who I gay parents in the 50s or the 60s, and issuing judgment against the parents from back then… Back then is not now… Judge what’s going on in the recent or the now not 40 or 50 years ago – which is what this woman is doing… And unfortunately she’s appealing to some unfortunate children who do get bullied for having a parents. I only hope those gay parents don’t let their kids go down the same path as bitter woman did… Because something is made her extremely bitter and angry towards your mothers and it’s something she is not admitting to

  • billbear1961

    Unlike the Obergefell Five, for example, you obviously don’t give a DAMN about children!

    Well, *I* don’t give a FUCK about your VERY selective choices from your bible or YOUR interpretation of them.

    You wish you’d had a father. Well, many don’t for all kinds of reasons, and MANY of us didn’t have one even when he was THERE!

    So, cry me a FUCKING river!

    The fact you wanted a father present when you were growing up is NO REASON to shit on your mother’s marriage to her wife.

    They were good to you, BOTH of them, and THIS is how you treat them?!

    Just who the HELL do you think you ARE?!

    Many of us weren’t happy with the arrangements arrived at by our heterosexual parents.

    Maybe WE should have a LEGAL say in the marriages THEY enter into with opposite-sex partners?! Maybe they should require our permission? Maybe we should VOTE on it, on THEIR marriage rights?!

    Oh, no, no, no–THAT would be different, wouldn’t it, you HYPOCRITE!

    Fuck off!

    Please pay no attention to this arrogant Christer, to this godawful embarrassment, Australia!

  • emjayay

    As everyone here has already said, she is an appalling nutjob ingrate. Mothers and fathers love and raise kids in different ways, as does every individual mother or father. Parenting is about attention and love and being intelligent and caring. A father may be more loving and nurturing than some mother. Some mother may be more of a disciplinarian and about relating the child to the world than some man might be.

    She should be grateful for the two (not one, or none) parents she says were so great and then STFU.

    And yes, her mind has been poisoned by the rigid absurdiites of fundamentalist Christian belief like so many others. The only question is what was so wrong and lacking with her in the first place that she had to grasp onto this ignorant system of rigid belief. It is the same question we may ask about why some American or British young person runs off and joins ISIS: WTF is going on with them? Or for example the white bread mainstream wife of the Boston bomber who turned into a hijab wearing Muslim as the wife of a low life Muslim American. WTF is going on with these people?

    Back in the Summer of Love days, many 20-something (not that this one appears to be anywhere near that age) children of mainstream middle class went off on their semi-utopian dreams and in one way or another went the hippie direction. It was a change in the direction of love and hope and openness and creativity and looking to a new and better future. These people are all making the leap in the opposite direction, toward structure and absolute rules and rigid sexual roles and in general the mindset of 2000 years ago. So, WTF?

    I had parents who cared a lot and gave a lot and did what they could for their kids and both did a whole lot of damage to them as well. Two differently constricted and damaged people. Doesn’t have any relation to whatever I think about who parents should be.

  • Happy Dance

    All I can say to her is I hope she has a happy marriage, never divorces, raises wonderful, fully accepting and loving children. I wish nothing ill of her, even though she has sordid views. I believe she is just ignorant. If her father didn’t want to be in her life, that is not a reason to hate gay people raising families. That is a reason to hate deadbeat dads!

  • Troy Gilbert

    I’m going to start a website where people raised by evangelistic christians and staunch catholics can post stories anonymously about how miserable they were growing up and use the stories as evidence that religious people shouldn’t be allowed to have children.

  • StraightGrandmother

    I think Katy Faust’s mother needs to speak UP.
    By remaining silent she is aiding and abetting Katy’s gay parenting attacks.

    I will make book on what she will say, “Katy never felt this way until she married a Pastor.”
