Mom Beats Up Son For Being “Too Gay and Too Feminine”

A woman in Tennessee is being faced with domestic abuse charges afterJacqueline Alexander allegedly punching and beating up her son. Her reasoning was a blow to the LGBT community, saying that her son was being “too feminine and too gay.”

It was around 11 p.m. on Tuesday when Jacqueline Alexander punched her son in the face for being effeminate.

“No, that’s not right. I mean that’s her flesh and blood, her son,” Tamika Heard, a neighbor of Alexander’s, told reporters.

Another person who commented on the incident is Will Batts, who runs the Memphis Gay and Lesbian Center in Tennessee.

“It’s shocking every time it happens, but it’s not news to us at the center,” said Batts. “We hear a lot of stories about people who are assaulted by family members. Young people who are kicked out of their houses when they come out to a parent.”

The age of Alexander’s son has not yet been identified, but it was noted that there were several bruises on his face, leading many to assume that he was hit several times by his mother.

As for Alexander, she is being held on a $1,000 bond.

It is unknown is Alexander had anger issues or if she was genuinely concerned for her child, but either way, there are a lot of cases where parents worry about their children not conforming to expected gender roles.  Many parenting experts say that this is not something to over-react about.

One concerned mother wrote into Parenting about her very young son who was effeminate and played with dolls.  She said that although she was a liberal, she did not want her child to have to go through the hardships of being gay.

Dr. Gayle Peterson, Berkley, CA family therapist and the author of Making Healthy Families, said that playing with toys of the opposite gender or other subtle actions that are typical of the opposite gender does not always reflect the s*xuality of the child.

“Playing with dolls won’t have any effect on his masculinity beyond perhaps helping to make him a more sensitive, nurturing man,” she said. “Parents shouldn’t attribute so much meaning to something so innocent and should support their child’s needs. Otherwise, he may feel he has to choose between his gender and his natural inclinations.”

    One of the problems is many people or fed up with gay and their parading it down Main St. Most people can get their minds off gay issues and their choices, if it’s not flaunted. I would absolutely not be happy about having an adult gay son; although, I could tolerate his lifestyle from a distance. I would welcome him and his lover or spouse to my house but I would have to hold back my puke it they were kissing and slow dancing in my presence.

    I imagine if I have a minor gay son, I would be reluctant to take him anywhere with me, if he acted feminine to the point that it turned heads. If he was a gay who behaved like Don Lemon or Anderson Cooper I could stand it because he’s not way out there. But it he worn make-up, feathers and jewelry like a Las Vegas showgirl, I would be tempted avoid him.

    In the case of the mother, I think she just might have momentarily snapped. I imagine it’s troubling for a straight woman to imagine her son giving head to a man or being sodomized as he moaned and squirmed like a girl. Most likely she tried to talk to him about his girly ways. She probably even went from talking to yelling from yelling to threatening and from threatening to snapping one day. However, she is wrong. I think if they are to continue to stay together they both needs counseling.
