Kevin Hart’s recent interview with Rolling Stone is showing a not-so-surprising side to the comedian when it comes to raising his son. Hart thinks that his job as a father is to make sure his son doesn’t ‘turn out’ to be gay.

“One of my biggest fears is my son growing up and being gay. That’s a fear. Keep in mind, I’m not homophobic. . . . Be happy. Do what you want to do. But me, as a heterosexual male, if I can prevent my son from being gay, I will,” Hart stated.

Now how exactly does one prevent their child from being gay? Is there a gay-prevention parenting class?

“It’s about my fear. I’m thinking about what I did as a dad, did I do something wrong, and if I did, what was it? Not that I’m not gonna love my son or think about him any differently. The funny thing within that joke is it’s me getting mad at my son because of my own insecurities — I panicked. It has nothing to do with him, it’s about me. That’s the difference between bringing a joke across that’s well thought-out and saying something just to ruffle feathers,” Hart continued.

I’m thinking Hart should probably focus more on his son not sounding ignorant like him when he grows up, or even making sure his son realizes that there’s nothing wrong if he ‘turned out’ to be gay.

Clutchettes, do you think that should be Hart’s or any parent’s concern about their child?

  • I have no issue with his commentary whatsoever. I’ve often wondered about heterosexual supporters of homosexuality. What would they do or how would they fee if their child turned out gay? No one is born gay. It’s a choice. Kevin knows his son wasn’t born gay which is why he feels the way he does.

      Are we born heterosexual? I think events in your early childhood can influence your sexuality. But then again some children show signs of being homosexual pretty early on. Honestly I didn’t like guys until…well into high school lol, I preferred being around women. I still do. Anyways I’m engaged to a man, so I guess that makes me straight.

      But back to your question, I don’t think it matters if someone is born “gay or straight” if two consenting adults want to be together and they choose to be together than I don’t see what the problem is. Someone being gay doesn’t hurt me.

      If their child were gay, ‘heterosexual supporters of homosexuality’ would probably advocate for a society where this child could live & be happy & be with whom they love. I wonder how ‘opponents of homosexuality’ (how a person can oppose another person’s sexuality which has scientifically been acknowledged to be innate & not a choice boggles my mind though. Could someone be opposed to left handed people?) would feel if they had a trans child who was murdered for his gender identity like all the black trans women who’ve been murdered this year or if they had a gay child that committed suicide like the many that do because they’re told there’s something ‘wrong’ with their sexual orientation. Perhaps, they would become more compassionate towards people different than themselves.

  • That shouldn’t be his biggest fear.

    • Mr. S

      Why shouldn’t it be his fear? Aids are at a very high rate among the gay community.

    My biggest concern is that my son ends up dead, in jail, or unemployable. I’m not going to lie though I wouldn’t be please if he were gay.

    I want to play who has The Biggest Fear.

    Let’s see, I know:

    one stillborn
    one died shortly after birth
    one died of lymphoma at 15
    one hit by a car at 14
    one died of a brain aneurysm at 7 or 8

    I’m glad this kkkoon lives in a place where DWB or even living while Black doesn’t happen.

    he has no control over that, all he can do is love his child unconditionally if that were to play out. If you raised him right, whatever the sex of the person he chooses to lay with won’t diminish the morals/values that you have instilled in him, resting assured that without a doubt, his son will always do the right things in his lifetime.

    I get that no one wants their child to be gay, and i can’t blame them for the injustices he will face as a black gay male in this biased world would be tough. But there are SOOOOO many more more urgent things facing black men right now that this should not even have came out of his mouth. . . .
