I don't see the problem here. Two parents had a child together. They split up and custody was awarded to the better parent. How would it be different if, say, it had been a heterosexual couple who had used a sperm bank due to the man's infertility? Would you automatically favor the mother in that case just because she actually birthed the child?

This is actually really great news. If the child had been placed with the irresponsible mother for no other reason than the child was biologically hers, then it would show that homosexual relationships weren't taken seriously in the courts.

But the court made a great decision here, awarding the child to the analog of the father in the divorce. This is the way it should be, without regard to sexuality or gender, but our culture is only beginning to make progress into overcoming long-held biases.
