These parents requested an antigay babysitter — and got publicly shamed

REACH Kids is a company that hires out babysitters throughout Sydney, priding themselves on an ability to match up sitters in accord with the individual demands of each family.

However, they were shocked when a pair of antigay parents specifically requested that their babysitter not support the “rainbow flag community.”

The company refused to relent to these “outrageous” demands, which came from parents who said they wanted to raise their kid in a “normal” fashion.

“We have 3 kids ages 3-11,” they wrote in a text. “The babysitter will need to be from a Christian background as we are a faith driven household.”

We also request that the babysitter supports our teaching of antigay marriage, and lack of support for the gay/rainbow flag community.”

“We are just asking for a normal person, not one with colored hair or supporting radical gender theories.

“We want to raise our kids to be normal.”

The company’s owner decided to shame the couple for their “alarming request” on social media, writing:

“While I can understand wanting a sitter whose religious beliefs align with your own, to ask that the person serving you openly disrespects another group of people is outrageous.

“At REACH kids we are incredibly supportive of the diversity within our community.”

“While we recognize not everyone feels the same, we firmly believe in equal rights for all, including the LGBT+ community.”

“I have since turned away this customer based on their discriminatory behavior toward the LGBT+ community.”
