    How about a list of things that are 'different?' And even the sex isnt different since lots of straight couples do *all* the same things.
    Why do you think my argument had to do with the ability to use their facilities to do everyday things? Obviously everyone has arms and legs and fingers and toes, so obviously they can do all those things you listed.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Record Support for Gay Marriage[W:162:334]That kind of comment, directly posted as it was, needs to stop.

    As does the rest of the baiting/flaming and personal comments that are floating around this thread. Stick to the topic, which is NOT each other.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    No, it means they never knew their parents. Anyway, nice job using the terms egg donor and sperm donor. Real nice. Those terms are meant to insult people, so yeah.

    In some cases, that's all they are. In other cases, they may try to be a parent, but fail miserably at it and lose the role. The mere fact of having sex and shooting a sperm might make one a biological father, but it doesn't always make someone a parent. That's just a fact, whether you accept it, wanna play word games...or not.

    Gay people, and many minorities of different types, have this incessant mindset that they face challenges and other people have life handed to them in whatever shape or form they wish.

    That alone has kept the black community in a vice grip of failure. This notion that white people have the world handed to them on a six-figure platter. And strangely enough, there is discrimination within the black community among the lighter and darker varieties of people.

    This is such a wussified, overly sensitive, reality TV driven, needy world we live in. Frankly, it weeds out the weak. My daughters will greatly benefit from that one day.
    before you were complaining about people comparing discrimination against people to discrimination against other people

    now your complaining that they think no one else has faced problems when your previous complaint required that they do

    Oh? So at what point is a persons right to a kid established when they adopt a kid? Is it perhaps AFTER they adopt the kid?

    You dont know what you are talking about. My adopted sisters got to have supervised meetings with their mother and know their brother and 2 sisters (also adopted out) as well.

    Great, but that has nothing to do with what we were talking about where kids DIDN'T get to see their parents.

    Huh? Were those sentences?

    The point is, enough with all the self-absorbed pity parties. Everybody faces people and scenarios that don't favor them. That doesn't make them "plights", as if they're trying to free themselves from the shackles of slavery or starvation.
