Amethyst, if a child has a loving, caring, interested, good father (or 2), he can very well turn out to be a balanced, responsible, self-confident
adult. It's the quality of the parenting not the sex of the parents that counts. Many neglected, suicide victims had 2 parents of the opposite
Then read what's here and this one
Quality of parenting is tied in to what gender combination you have.
Of course, if you don't believe that males and females are inherently different, and that one of each provides balance, you won't believe me anyhow.
OH MY GOD!
I read both of those links and cannot believe the lies that were being spewed from them. Or that someone would have the unmitigated GAUL to actually
post them as reference.
In this day and age, I thought anyone civilized enough to have/use a computer would have advanced beyond believing that kind of garbage, and just
ignored it like you'd ignore the KKK's propaganda about black people.
Both of those sites are full of hateful propaganda made for/by people that are trapped in the past - It's time to enter the 21st century.
If that's how you feel - then by all means, keep believing it - teach your kids those values - if they keep those values with them then you are
sentencing your kids to a life of being judged intolerant bigots and your worries about them being in the minority will come true. Not because they
were the only ones born in wedlock
, but because they will be in the small group that has to sit by themselves in the cafeteria because they, as
their teacher will write on their report card: "Don't get along well with others."
I'm sorry as I can be for having to say what I just said - but I can't take anymore of hearing all those statistics that say we're bad people just
because we're gay - If you don't like gays, guess what - YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE ONE!!!!!!!!!!! it's not contagious - If you don't like what gays
do, guess what - YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO WHAT THEY DO!!!!!!!! - Live your life the way you please, and afford me the same courtesy - Be homophobic
if you want - Believe that the earth is flat if you want - Don't believe in Gravity if you don't want to, trust me, you won't fly off the face of
the earth for not believing in it - BUT QUIT SPREADING YOUR LIES ABOUT GAYS!!!!!! -
Your kids won't 'turn' gay just because they hear being gay is OK - but If they are gay, imagine how tormented they will be knowing they can never
come to you for support, knowing how much you'd 'hate' them for something they had no control over. Having to hide that and keep it all inside is
enough to make anyone want to die.
I'm not trying to convert anyone to queerness, so quit trying to convert us into being straight. I don't want to molest your children - so quit
saying we're all pedophiles. We don't all have mental problems, but if we do, its NOT because we're gay, it's because of the way we get treated
just because we are.
Raise your kids like you feel is right, but don't EVER force your views of child-rearing on other people.
Any Idiot 'straight' couple can have kids, married or not, planned or not, wanted or not - but if you were infertile and WANTED children how would
you feel if you had to take a test and be deemed "morally qualified" just to procreate? Try putting yourself in the underdog's place JUST FOR ONCE
- PLEASE, REALLY TRY - if you don't feel just a little tug on your heartstrings - then your heart is a lost cause. Kids from parents that have to go
through fertility clinics are WANTED KIDS - and how could any child that's wanted by it's parents (gay couple or straight) not be loved?
Kids learn how to love, and kids learn how to hate - - - and they usually learn both in the same place.
