Emily, I believe you have some very skewed views on what it means to be a family.
A family unit does not need to be based upon creating children. I am a straight male, I never wish to have children, neither does my partner, does
that make us as bad in your eyes as a homosexual couple??
Does the fact that my partner and I are able to physically create children change your mind? It shouldn't, we've made a consious decision never to
have children, and undertaken surgical means to complete that.
Another think that I think you're being skewed upon is the value of children to society. I fully believe that we should do all that we can for our
children, but I do not believe that the production of children is, at this point in human history, as vitally importaint.
According to www.earthday.org, there are only 4.5 productive acres per person on the planet. Currently, the average American consumes 24 productive
acres. With rising global populations the amount of productive land per capita will decline. The world could do better with fewer humans. Now I
don't advocate any kind of governmental rules like those imposed by China, but I believe that your putting so much importance into the sheer
production of babies to be somewhat, irresponsible.
That being said, it is actually possible for homosexual couples to have children, through the exact same procedures that heterosexual couples that are
So basically, you may not be one of those Christian-Taliban types, but you're being just as bigoted. Maybe you should do some research, or at least
critical logical thought, before you speak next time hmmm?
