He then went on to say, "I can't think of anything worse than being brought up by two gay dads." "Some people might not agree with that. Fine! That's just my opinion," said Everett, who also said he doesn't consider himself part of the gay community. GLAAD President Herndon Graddick said in a statement, "Since Everett shared his outdated opinion, gay parents, as well as their friends and families, have voiced overwhelming disappointment. Children aren't hurt when raised by caring gay parents, but they are when uninformed people in the public eye insult their families."
