I can’t think of anything worse than being brought up by two gay dads
It’s Rupert Everett who said that. The GAY British actor gave an interview for the Sunday Times Magazine and he opened up about gay life “[I] can’t think of anything worse than being brought up by two gay dads… Some people might not agree with that. Fine! That’s just my opinion”, he said.
The actor made clear his opinion while discussing his current boyfriend meeting his mother, Sara. She told the magazine: “In the past, I have said that I wish Rupert was straight and, I probably still feel that… I’d like him to have a pretty wife. I’d like him to have children. He’s so good with children. He’d make a wonderful father… But I also think a child needs a mummy and a daddy. I’ve told him that and he takes it very well. He doesn’t get angry with me. He just smiles”.
As for the actor, he added: “I’m not speaking on behalf of the gay community. In fact, I don’t feel like I’m part of any ‘community.’ The only community I belong to is humanity and we’ve got too many children on the planet, so it’s good not to have more”.
In response, Ben Summerskill, Chief Executive of LGBT Rights Advocacy group Stonewall said that “Rupert should get out a little bit more to see the facts for himself. There is absolutely no evidence that the kids of gay parents suffer in the way they are being brought up or in how they develop”.
Previously, Everett called gay parenting “egocentric and vain”.
Is Everett still unhappy with being gay or is he just unhappy with life itself? His words can affect many gay people who disagree with him and want to start a family.
