(American Thinker)   Why do homosexuals not like me? I merely think that they should be limited to second-class marriages, not be allowed to raise their own children, and that African-Americans enjoyed full and equal civil rights as soon as they could no longer be sold   ( americanthinker.com) divider line

Don't forget this gem:

If there is one charge that GLAAD and the HRC throw at me tirelessly, again and again, it's the charge that I compared gay parents to slave owners.  Which I did.

children have an inalienable right to a mother and father, cannot be bought or sold, and are entitled to know their origins.  Whether it is straight people or gay people using divorce, surrogacy, trafficking, or any other means to deny people these rights, I oppose it.

I'd love to see he treatise against adoption, it regularly denies people the right to know their origins.

Parenthood is their great white whale.  They want to have children to love them and call them Mom and Dad.  They need to get those children from you because biology prevents them from siring them naturally.  Gentlemen readers, these folks are trying to find a way to get the sperm out of your testicles and into their laboratories; lady readers, these folks need to find a way to implant an embryo of their sperm in your womb, keep you obedient during the gestation, and take your baby away forever.

Well, I'm pretty sure I know at least one reason why *I* hate this person.

If you have to lie...

Also, he's against divorce? As in, it should be illegal if you have kids? A barren couple can't use a surrogate? Or does the surrogate just have to live with them as the mother, while the wife is just the lady Daddy is in love with?

What if a child is denied these rights by fate? Do we force the single remaining parent to get married? Are orphans just SOL?

As for where the article goes after that sentence, I think it can be only summed up thusly:

Being a not-American, my familiarity with the constitution, or whichever document may govern this, is probably not as good as some here.  I don't know which amendment outlines a child's right to a mother and a father.

Does this mean that being a single parent is unconstitutional?

Does this mean that mother and father need to spend a certain amount of time with said child?  If so, how much?  How long can a parent be absent without it being against the law?

People don't generally want to let lesbians milk sperm out of their testicles.  People don't usually like the idea of gay men gestating babies in their wombs and then taking them away.

[img.fark.net image 850x586]


The claim of a "right" to a mother and a father is a new invention of the marriage equality opposition movement. Unable to actually show that same-sex marriage causes any real harm, opponents of legalization are now asserting a "right" neither enumerated nor explicitly protected by the United States Constitution, and they willfully ignore the issue that many children lack either a mother or a father for reasons entirely unrelated to same-sex marriage. When confronted with the implications of their assertion, they quickly attempt to shift or modify the subject of discussion.

In a zoning meeting, we had some 25 something developer shill self-claim to be the perfect demographic: needing "upscale" restaurants and bars, the bright lights of midtown, and the "upper figure salary," in a town of 7,000. I always wondered where he works. His real name isn't Robert Oscar Lopez, it's Statistical Fiction parading as a real person. SCROTUS needs to give him more rights.

The people at HRC might be amazingly illiterate when it comes to geography, but all it takes is a decade or so of Americans talking to people in countries like Canada (where selling sperm and eggs is illegal) for the lapse in judgment to end and for people to wake up, saying, "Hey, this is really weird."

I like how he insinuates that sperm donation is illegal in the EU/Canada. When really, its weird that in the US we get compensated for it. Just because you can't get compensated in Canada for sperm donation doesn't mean you can't still donate. Just like how we don't pay blood donors.

He's an idiot.

The overriding emotion that almost all conservatives are trying to hide is fear.  They hate and get angry so you can't see that they are really really scared inside.  Scared of black people, brown people, gay people, strong women, Muslims, atheists, whatever.

Yup.  I had a coworker who got divorced, had a bitter custody battle, and finally though he had won when the kid tested positive for crystal meth after a week with the mom.  And if those two decided to get married again, my state would be accommodate them completely - because they're presumed to be better parents than any gay couple that doesn't even want kids.

I love trotting that guy out if anyone at work ever starts spouting the same shiat TFA's author did.  "Would you prefer your kid to be babysat for the evening by a gay couple or by Brent and his ex?" shuts down that bullshiat quick.

As best I can tell, he'd be all for gay marriage as long as they used the Handmaid's Tale as an instruction manual.

I wonder ... if his only complaint about gay marriage is that homosexuals can't have children without outside help, then would he agree that polygamous threesomes should be allowed to get married?

So, they're like Vorbis, then. I think the worst thing I can wish upon them is total, utter clarity.


He hesitated, like a man opening a door to a familiar room and finding nothing there but a bottomless pit. The memories were still there. He could feel them. They had the right shape. It was just that he couldn't remember what they were. There had been a voice . . . . Surely, there had been a voice? But all he could remember was the sound of his own thoughts, bouncing off the inside of his own head.

One anecdote of a bad opposite-sex couple is not proof that, in general, a mother and a father are a superior parenting team than two men or two women.

The appropriate response to a same-sex marriage opponent who cites child rearing as a justification for their advocacy is a request for multiple peer-reviewed studies showing that children of same-sex couples are, on average, less well-adjusted than are children of opposite-sex couples (and then be prepared to explain exactly why Mr. Mark Regnerus's study does not actually examine same-sex parents and thus is not a valid example).

Condensed version of the article, in case the source is blocked at your work under "Tasteless":

I have supernatural powers that nobody could have guessed. Am I a terrorist?

Just in case you missed it, I am bisexual and don't hide it or apologize for it. And my mom was a lesbian. They're after your kids, plain and simple; all their other issues are mere window dressing.

They want to have children to love them and call them Mom and Dad. They need to get those children from you because biology prevents them from siring them naturally. And my mom was a lesbian.

Gentlemen readers, these folks are trying to find a way to get the sperm out of your testicles and into their laboratories; lady readers, these folks need to find a way to implant an embryo of their sperm in your womb, keep you obedient during the gestation, and take your baby away forever. People don't generally want to let lesbians milk sperm out of their testicles.

I made four trips to Europe and visited the United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, and France. That's it. I never even did anything in Canada or Mexico.

Despite all the choreographed photographs of happy gay couples with children, people generally do not like growing up and knowing that half of them was sold to a gay couple. And my mom was a lesbian.

HRC seems to want to keep secret that the international gay lobby has turned American women into incubation ovens, and instead of slaves originating in Africa, they now originate in Anaheim.

I can't help but point out that black suffering came from a practice of people buying people, and now, because they can't procreate naturally, homosexuals are buying people and calling them their children. And my mom was a lesbian.

I composed an article in French for some people in Europe, focusing on how Sewall's overview of the violations of slavery spotlighted three separations as the main crime of the trade: men from their country, husbands from wives, parents from children. Bingo. That's same-sex parenting.

And my mom was a lesbian.

It does sometimes sound like the homeless guy on the corner debating a pigeon, but what can you do?

To religious conservatives, anecdotes are only valid as data sets when those anecdotes validate their own position.
