Quote# 25916

I have no suggestions on what the Cheneys should do in this situation, but I can tell you what I did.

I have a gay daughter and have been loving and accepting of her and her partner, but not of their lifestyle. We have made clear our opinions, but my wife and I do not make life uncomfortable for them because of our opinions.

When they announced that they were going to try and get pregnant, we sat them down and explained our position. We explained why we believed that children should have a mother and a father and told them that, should they go though with this, we would sue for custody of our grandchild. We assured them that living in the South that we had a better than even chance of winning.

Though they were not happy with our decision, they still visited and were welcomed and we have always been welcomed at their home. They thought of moving elsewhere but didn't like any of the places with more liberal laws. (A lesson in how liberalism ruins a place) It has now been eight years and still no babies.

There are no words to express my rage, MEGoody. The expression \"Die in a fire\" doesn't do your bigoted, small-minded world view justice.

You would do that to your own daughter?

Con fucking gratulations. Asshole. Now your kid knows she can't trust her own goddamn parents. Loving and accepting my ass.

How about \"May a Youma eat your innards\"?

Seriouly, get out of my reality.

Also, either you're wrong, or \"the South\" is in dire need of a revolution.

I have no words to express how much I despise this person.

Wow...that pretty much makes me want to cry. You'd really try to take your grandchild from her parents just because they were gay?

This is one of the nastiest things I have ever read. How could a parent do that to their own child? If I was their daughter I'd cut all ties with those bastards.

well...you have to die sometime, grandpa. When you do, I hope your daughter has a child who is raised without ever even knowing your name.

And what, pray tell, is entirely wrong with same sex couples having a child? The technology is available to facilitate it, it's not unethical by any stretch of the imagination and the child will invariably end up with 2 loving parents. Seriously, what's wrong with all that?

The daughter should disown HER because of her myopic bigotry.

This has to be one of the saddest postings I've ever seen. I cannot believe someone would actually threaten that. My sincerest condolences to your daughter.

They can't win custody JUST becuae the parents are gay. I'm pretty sure thats illigeal anywhere.

MEGoody is a truly, truly sad person. I feel so sorry for the daughter I want to cry.

You're suing your own daughter for fostering a child while gay.

They're not second class citizens you know.

Hey, I managed to respond without exploding. Awesome! :D

MEGoody still needs a clue.

An easy way around their attempt for custody would be for the daughter's girlfriend to become pregnant. Then MEGoody wouldn't be a grandparent at all in the eyes of the law.

So, you're willing to exploit the judicial system, alienate your daughter, destroy her hopes of having a family AND take her child away just to enforce your bigotry?

How inhuman of you.

(The 'liberal' comment is just icing on the metaphorical cake.)
---------------------------
Skaloop makes a good point.
Too bad people like us aren't there to help the poor girl.

That is incredibly sad. How can you not just cut ties with someone like this?

Good luck with that lawsuit, it doesn't stand a snowball's chance in hell.

I am off to find MEGoody's IP addy. If you need to be told why then you probly don't want to know.

Fed Up

Actually, kids do ideally need both a mother and a father...it does seem a bit selfish to bring another child into a situation where he/she isn't going to have the benefit of both male and female role models.
Obviously, adoption's a completely different thing, but the quote clearly states \"pregnant\".

That said...this guy's a bigoted piece of shit for threatening to sue his own daughter. Growing up with grandparents wouldn't exactly be a 'normal' childhood either. What's he going to do, say that mummy and daddy died in a car crash and break off all family ties? Or just turn the child against its own mother...

Well, what a twat.

\" have a gay daughter and have been loving and accepting of her and her partner, but not of their lifestyle. We have made clear our opinions, but my wife and I do not make life uncomfortable for them because of our opinions.\"

OK, good for you.


\"When they announced that they were going to try and get pregnant, we sat them down and explained our position.\"

Assuming your daughter and her partner are adults, it's not your place to sit them down and give them a lecture.


\"We explained why we believed that children should have a mother and a father and told them that, should they go though with this, we would sue for custody of our grandchild.\"

What wonderful, loving parents you are. Threatening to sue your daughter to try to take away her child. I'm revolted and you should be ashamed.


\"We assured them that living in the South that we had a better than even chance of winning.\"

I don't think so, actually. Presuming neither parent is abusing the child, I think you'd do best to sit down and shut up.


\"Though they were not happy with our decision,\"

And, who would expect an adult child to be happy with such intrusive, assoholic parnets?


\"they still visited and were welcomed and we have always been welcomed at their home.\"

Because they are not as assholy as you.


\"They thought of moving elsewhere but didn't like any of the places with more liberal laws. (A lesson in how liberalism ruins a place)\"

It was probably not the more liberal laws that caused them to stay put.

Liberalism does not ruin places. I'm happy living in the San Francisco bay area, one of the most liberal areas in the nation. Liberal laws have contributed to making this area a cultural Mecca and a technology leader. It's great.



\"It has now been eight years and still no babies.\"

That may be because of issues unrelated to your assoholism.

I'm truly amazed that you feel so proud feeling that you have denied your daughter the chance to be a parent. You're an asshole.

Dear Fed Up, being a lesbian doesn't preclude knowing men who can act as a role model for a child. We have brothers, cousins, uncles and friends who would lend a hand. MCGoody is merely a walking piece of shit; I'll say nothing to or about him

5/31/2007 6:48:44 PM

I'm willing to bet they only visit so that they'll stay in your will.

I'd also bet that as soon as they find a place that offers both of them a job, they're gone and out of the south for good.

5/31/2007 6:54:34 PM

And why couldn't they just have her partner get pregnant? They're not married, the baby would have absolutely no relation to the bigots, and therefore the bigots couldn't win custody of the child. It's not their grandchild, biologically, in any way.
