Say what you will about the problematic nature of this family, or the voyeurism that is being played to by the creation and airing of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, the fact that Alanah (aka Honey Boo) made this statement, makes her far more socially advanced then many, and certainly more than many of the Republicans currently running for office.
Alanah has a gay uncle who they call poodle. She loves him dearly and it is out of this love that she made this wonderful statement. Kids won’t find gay people offensive and they won’t be confused, if we don’t stigmatize a gay identity. Alanah may be a right proper madam as Sparky would say, but this one she got absolutely right. Say it with me y’all, here come honey boo boo.
