Parents’ Influence on Gay Attitudes

In his heart, the 59-year-old weaves a lovely reason that reserves a tender spot for gay men. Because his biological parents divorced when he was a child, the chef was raised by a couple of gay people. He revealed how he grew up with his gay parents in a 2014 interview with Eater.

Andrew not only adores and supports a gay lifestyle despite being heterosexual but he is also enraged when people criticize the alternative way of life.

The judge had previously ruled that having a child raised by a homosexual was not in the best interests of the child.

Andrew was so outraged by the incident that he took to Facebook to share his side of the story, even calling the judge an “imbecile” for his views. He went on to say that gay parents were preferable to neglectful and abusive heterosexual parents.

Andrew also shared a tweet on January 28, 2018, in which he slammed haters for making biased and sexist remarks about same-sex couples.
