Setting the Record Straight

As I’ve said before, I sometimes struggle to raise Tripp.  However, he does NOT use slurs.  On the most recent episode of Life’s a Tripp, the Huffington Post is reporting that my son said the word “f-gg-t.”

This is not true.

Let me be clear.  I’m not proud of what he did say.  Sadly, he used a different “f word.”

Lifetime filmed over 12 months (on and off) and they caught a moment on film that would cause any parent to be red in the face.  Tripp is always surrounded by adults – around the campfires with cousins and their friends, at the shop with my dad and his snowmachine buddies.  He’s apparently picked up some language that I’d prefer he not use. On national television or at home.

I do oppose gay marriage, as I’ve written about before (and the HuffPo points out).  I guess the temptation to label my three year old son is just too great for the lefty papers to resist.  However, one of my new Twitter followers made an excellent point.

He tweeted that the left tries to hold my three year old son more accountable than their adult spokespeople.

In the meantime, my #IBuiltThis video is going viral — with its message of real hope and classic American self-reliance.  If you care more about the fate of our nation and culture than the verbal slips of a three-year-old, please watch.

    It’s sad how quick people are to judge Bristol, especially those of you who profess to be religious.

    I saw that episode and Tripp definitely did NOT say fa**ot. He most def used the F and so what that she giggled.. I distinctly remember being shocked and lmao when my 5 year old dropped the f bomb.. Kids will be kids and they repeat what they hear.. and if ur a parent u know that when u think ur kids arent listening, trust that they are!! lolAs long as they r corrected she did her job. Bristol u are an amazing Mommy and a VERY smart, articulate young woman.. Im a Democrat and have obvious different political views BUT I love you and your family.. you all are funny, smart, articulate, determined people and I respect that.. I happen to support gay marriage and I support our President BUT for ppl to be rude and hateful to you for speaking your opinion is very childish and wrong.. This is America, we r all entitled to our opinions and beliefs.. OH! and Jenni JWOWW Farley is an illiterate and rose to fame as a drunken lush slut, who the hell is she to challenge anyones beliefs? lol.. Bristol would wipe the floor with her in a debate.. I would PAY to see Im excited to see you back on DWTS Bristol!! Im a huge fan! Dont worry about these haters, just keep following ur heart and stay true to urself always.. I hope you and Gino stay together! U 2 are so cute together and Hes so awesome with Tripp…PS, tell Willow to be nicer to Andy.. I feel so bad for him.. :( LOVE u Bristol!! I think ur awesome!!!!!!

      Thank you Tina Johnson for proving that not all democrats viciously object to opposing views.
      I am a registered Independent (leaning Libertarian) and even though I don’t always agree with Republicans on everything ,we can have a lively,civil discussion on any topic
      I almost always disagree with liberal democrats on nearly everything and that is not likely to change when their answer to every discussion is to make vicious personal attacks instead of trying to use facts to convince me I am wrong. However,Tina,I would love to have a lively debate with you anytime :) you give me hope there are more like you out there.
      You are also right about Bristol’s reaction to her son dropping the F bomb,I reacted the same way when my daughter was small–clamped my hands over my mouth to smother the laughter until I could properly correct her without laughing lol Of course,when she tried it again,I kept my promise and washed her mouth out with soap and that ended that…………..I know that the libs will accuse me of child abuse for it
      but Oh,well it never hurt me or anyone else I know AND it works,once you have tasted it you never want to again lol————to the libs……..we DON”T make them swallow it,just getting the taste of it is enough to make them think before using foul language again
      Tina, I agree with ALL you said about the Palins,Gino and poor Andy :(
      Can’t wait to watch Bristol strut her stuff on DWTS, GO BRISTOL GO!!!!!!!!!!!!

    As a woman who found herself pregnant at 17, is a Christian, and am a very active Republican I began watching your show. I cheer for your mom, and family as I believe our Nation has taken on this attitude of what is right is now wrong and vice versa. However, I write this not because of Tripp’s language trip, but because I find it sad how on one hand you and your sister talk about God and what he wants for your lives and in the next breath she/your boyfriend and friends use language on TV that is appalling and not befitting a Christian (I’ve heard you a few times). Perhaps as young woman who profess a faith, you would consider another form of communication that befits God’s children. People are watching YOU all!!! Something to think about….not just for the TV audience, but your son is watching you and those around you to and is (as you know) mirroring all of you. Stay strong!

      Aren’t Christians supposed to wait until they are married to have sex? I’m no fan of the moronic Palin family, but you start out saying that you are a hypocrite, then blast Bristol for her hypocritical behavior. You really have no leg to stand on, so zip it.

    Bristol, I am about as liberal as I can be. I fully support gay marriage. However, I have watched every single episode of your show and love watching you. I think you are an excellent mother and it is clear that Levi is no father of the year. I am an attorney and I have been referring a lot of pregnant teenagers to your show/book so that they can get a realistic view of what to expect. The places in the show where you have talked about the fact that you initially believed Levi would be a good father are incredibly powerful and need to be seen by young mothers-to-be who are making custody decisions. I know very few people with children who haven’t heard them say a curse word occasionally. It is also funny. It’s funny because it is a cute voice saying something it shouldn’t. Laughing does not make you a bad mom. Again, I disagree with you on most political topics, but I love you as a person and I respect you for voicing your opinions.
