While I can see the point of a kid having abnormal parents getting beat up and teased for that is a bad thing, is it not worse for the kid to be parentless?
10/29/2005 3:26:07 PM
I would say so, Spaz
10/29/2005 6:27:11 PM
So we should make sure straight parents can't adopt kids either? I mean, growing up with a single parent can also lead to stress.
And then there are the parents that dress their kids up in nerdy clothes to go to school with. These kids might be beat up. Maybe we should take the kid back away from these parents too?
10/29/2005 7:41:31 PM
Darfasti - obviously. Because stopping other kids from beating kids up would probably be un-american or something.
10/29/2005 8:43:20 PM
we are not talking about parentless children here spinmaster!
12/14/2005 3:24:25 AM
They're parentless before they're adopted, duh
12/14/2005 3:45:26 AM
give them a half a chance with a real parents, duh

'How could you be so heartless to raise a child in a non-traditional home?! Did you not hear that we're bigots? We will make your child cry if you do not comply!\"

Here is what I mean, There are more issues involved in Civil Unions than two gays having a ceremony. I think it's quite weird to have two dads and for the sake of children and Natural families maybe they are not a good idea.
I am therefore at this time against Civil Unions. I think it would be hard to argue that Same Sex parents is unatural.
12/18/2005 12:45:44 AM
The only kind of kids who would beat up other kids because of their gay parents are the ones who have intolerant homophobes for parents.
12/9/2006 10:33:10 PM
Wrightbrigade, I think you're quite weird; maybe you shouldn't be allowed to have kids?
12/9/2006 11:04:06 PM
Too bad asshole bigots like this guy are the people these children need to be \"protected\" from.
4/2/2007 12:31:27 AM
Is this guy also saying it's bad to be adopted?
Kids are going to get picked on by someone, some time while growing up. Parents can teach them to deal with adversity. For example , \"I'm sorry that happened to you, but some people are biggots. That doesn't mean you don't have a good family.\"
4/2/2007 8:07:46 PM
Exactly, JP. I guess abortion is a better alternative to adoption, then, right? I mean, we wouldn't want children to go through life being teased.
4/2/2007 8:16:56 PM
Man Called True
I'd rather have had \"abnormal\" parents than the \"normal\" ones I did have. Talk about a stifling home life...
4/2/2007 8:20:38 PM
\"What's natural\" is what society as a whole decides what is natural. If society accepts same-sex parents, then the kids shouldn't have a problem (in an ideal, fundie-free world).
4/2/2007 8:21:42 PM
As some one who grew up under the watchful eyes of a lesbian couple, go fuck yourself with something hard and sandpapery.
Most of the shit I got was from people like you who thought I shouldn't be allowed to live with my biological mother and her partner because it would be "too hard". Too hard because of the fear of being taken away. Too hard because society rejected me as abnormal because of people like you.
10/29/2007 5:04:32 PM
Hey summer, are you going to put your atheist gestapo on me so I can't have any more kids?
Too late anyway, I already have 4 kids and none of them is going to grow up being a queer lover. Face it, we're out producing you and pretty soon, we're going to end all this atheist,queer-loving, bible denying, mix-race supporting, baby killing, women-working rebel-rousing.
We'll set things right, even if it means converting a few of you at gunpoint (or on a bonfire).
10/29/2007 5:31:52 PM
This is classic comedy gold:
"are you going to put your atheist gestapo on me so I can't have any more kids?...pretty soon, we're going to end all this atheist,queer-loving, bible denying, mix-race supporting, baby killing, women-working rebel-rousing.
We'll set things right, even if it means converting a few of you at gunpoint (or on a bonfire)."
Refering to the "atheist gestapo" and then going on to say you're gonna force people to your way of thinking and to do as you want through intimidation and threats of violence. Not to mention the fact that "queer-loving", "mix-race supporting" and "women-working" are some of the very things the Nazis were against.
The irony! It burns! The hypocrisy burns even more so!
PS I love the logic that people should be denied the right to have kids and kids should be denied the opertunity to have loving parents just because some people are assholes. Surely it would be far better and make much more sense to do soemthing about the assholes? It's like arguing that black couples in an almost-exclusively white town shouldn't be allowed to have a child because the kid might get made fun of or beaten up.
10/29/2007 6:12:25 PM
Yeah, let's stop letting non-white couples have kids, too. They might get beaten up by racist assholes, and we don't want to bother the racist assholes.
10/29/2007 11:50:16 PM
No, you can't have a wingnutocracy.

I personally think that people who are willing to show off their utter ignorance of history and anthropology shouldn't discuss families -- but that doesn't mean that I'll try to prevent you from doing so.
10/30/2007 12:24:43 AM
I know about history, duh. That's why the traditional marriage is a man and several women. That's how it is in the Bible and we need to return to this simple truth.
Not two men or two women raising a child. I'd have the say that this is not in the best interest of ANYONE - how can gay couples go about having their filthy sex when there is kids about. I just shudder at the thought.
And how can I be ignorant about anthropology when that is a word you just made up?
10/30/2007 12:46:30 AM
We'll just throw him in an overcrowded foster house and ruin his life completely because apparently you're afraid children with your views will make fun of him in school. You idiot.
10/30/2007 12:51:12 AM
I think Wrightbridge may be having us on. But if he isn't, here is how Merriam-Webster defines the word anthropology:
Main Entry: an·thro·pol·o·gy
Etymology: New Latin anthropologia, from anthrop- + -logia -logy
1: the science of human beings; especially : the study of human beings and their ancestors through time and space and in relation to physical character, environmental and social relations, and culture
2: theology dealing with the origin, nature, and destiny of human beings
— an·thro·po·log·i·cal \-p?-'lä-ji-k?l\ adjective
— an·thro·po·log·i·cal·ly \-ji-k(?-)le\ adverb
— an·thro·pol·o·gist \?an(t)-thr?-'pä-l?-jist\ noun
If you are for real Wrightbridge, may I suggest turning to a dictionary of the English language before claiming that a word is made up, just to be sure. Truly, if people like you ruled the world, we'd still be living in caves. You are probably one od those morons who thinks that the English we speak in Britain is another language and that the bible was written in English.
