    We don't need these "gotcha" moments to expose candidates views on homosexuality/gay marriage ect..., mostly because their views don't stand on their own two feet. The world is getting more progressive with each day and these archaic views will soon slip out of favor.

    It has everything to do with her views.

    I think it's ridiculous that you even call it exploitation.

    Are you fine with people using their children to spread their views?

    It's akin to the WBC people using their kids to hold up their signs.

    I would never do it but wouldn't call it exploitation. Exploitation....especially exploitation of children has a very negative connotation.

    ex·ploi·ta·tion (ksploi-tshn)
    n.
    1. The act of employing to the greatest possible advantage: exploitation of copper deposits.
    2. Utilization of another person or group for selfish purposes: exploitation of unwary consumers.
    3. An advertising or a publicity program.
    exploitation - definition of exploitation by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    It is exploitation. It would be the same if a man had his 5-8-year-olds carrying hate signs.

    It does have everything to do with her views. But using, nay forcing, a child to try and embarrass her because of said views is exploration at its worst.

    I don't think hate signs are comparable to putting your daughter up to asking why the lady doesn't think her mom should be a mom but whatever.

    No it's not, there are much worse forms of childhood exploitation....which is why it has a negative connotation associated with it....which is why it's a charged word for something that isn't that big of a deal.

    It is using a child to voice YOUR selfish views.

    Sure, but you're saying all selfish views are equal and that's not the case.
