    So...then please list how their marriages are different. That was your claim.

    You could say that he is the biological father. That would be technically correct. It is also technically correct to say that he was the sperm donor.

    Your blanket statements indicate you know nothing about the topic.

    Oh please, no one has the right to adopt children.

    No, a sperm donor is someone that donates sperm to a sperm bank. Even then though, if his sperm is used he is a parent of a child.

    You're mistaking the "growing" part.

    Straight people will never celebrate and promote gay marriage. They'll tolerate it and accept it as reality, but you're not going to see it become mainstream America. That's where a huge miscalculation is being made.

    The media is all over this stuff, but it's not topical in everyday America. It's background noise. CNN and MSNBC try to promote it and act as if the US is just a huge version of South Beach or San Francisco. It's just not.

    The vast overwhelming majority of America just ignores its gay communities, not out of spite, but out of practicality and indifference. Even the northeast, with it's say-one-thing-but-live-another attitude treats gays as sideshows more than serious public people, unless they are serious people who keep their private lives private. No one wants to know your sexual details no matter who you are.

    This will pass, and then there'll still be this huge "Look-at-me!" contingent of gays that need desperately to be recognized and coddled. The gay parade must go on.

    How is that different? If the sperm is then used to "create" a child, he is just as much the biological father as the guy who shoots the sperm directly into the vagina of the biological mother.
    In both cases they are the biological father and the sperm donor. Either/both terms are technically correct. But neither becomes the "parent" of the child simply by the action of delivering the sperm, no matter what the procedure used is.

    I'm more than aware of different situations existing, and the fact remains, we were not talking about the situation you brought up.

    Did you ignore my last sentence in that post on purpose or accident? I already said he is a parent if the sperm is used, but just that he is sperm donor up until that point.

    My premise had nothing to do with how the kid would see it.
