As usual, when gays make their demands they only think of themselves in a very selfish manner and not about the implications of what they are trying
to impose upon other people.
In this case, gays don't seem to care whether adopting a child is, "in THE CHILD'S best interests, all they care about is their selfish desire.
By that measure, a mothers maternal instinct is a "selfish desire" as you put it.
What you fail to realize is that the deisre to adopt a child is hardly a selfish desire. It is a normal desire to give a child a warm and loving
home. Especially one which doesn't have one yet.
And yes, that is at the most ultimate level selfish, but so is everything a human does.
Study after study has shown that mothers and fathers bring two totally different and complimentary dynamics into the child raising process and
therefore by gays adopting children they are denying that child 1/2 of this dynamic.
Funny thing about those studies. They never actually looked at gay couples. Kinda of tough to conclude anything about gay couples when you don't
even do a study on them!
And besides, what does a scientific study have to do with the law? Study after study shows that alcohol is bad for you, but it's still legal.
Further, gays don't seem to care that children can be particularly frank and cruel and that being raised by gay parents will virtually ensure that
child will be subject to ridicule and harrassment during their school years.
