One impact of the increase in homosexualty in recent years is the feminization of America's boys. Liberals would have us believe that there are no differences between men and women, and homosexual men try make that claim true. Thankfully there are people still who realize that boys are boys and should grow up to be men, not women. Vice versa is also true with girls. Girls should grow up as women, not pretending to be like men.

We bought the "Little House on the Prarie" t.v. series and definately noticed the gender roles portrayed in Little House were very different than those portrayed on T.V. today. It is too bad we don't have more media out there where men are portrayed as tough but tender the way Michael Landon did with this series. Are some of the episodes "cheesy" sure, but I love many of the lessons learned by the characters....and so do my kids ages 17-7. Even my teenage tough, sports playing, all boy teenagers will watch these with their sisters and like to do so.
