When you resort to that LCD approch to debate, you will not be taken seriously, or for anything other than an extremist pre-conceived ideologue.
That you don't grasp that opposition to the definitively inappropriate "marriage" designation for SS couples has nothing whatsoever to do with application of your alleged epithet, likely means that you've succumbed to the extremist pre-conceived ideological mindset far too long.
When the election is over and we open our eyes, it will sadly be too late to wonder what the hell just happened.
That's commerce, so of course the state should be involved in it.
Kids with Lesbian Parents May Do Better Than Their Peers - TIME
Steve Forbes father was gay, Mary Shelly (who gave us Frankenstein) was the daughter of a gay woman, Rene Russo was raised by her gay mother... What kids need and want is love and acceptance, they don't give a crap if it comes from one man and one woman, or one man, or one woman or two women or two men...The authors found that children raised by lesbian mothers — whether the mother was partnered or single — scored very similarly to children raised by heterosexual parents on measures of development and social behavior. These findings were expected, the authors said; however, they were surprised to discover that children in lesbian homes scored higher than kids in straight families on some psychological measures of self-esteem and confidence, did better academically and were less likely to have behavioral problems, such as rule-breaking and aggression.
"We simply expected to find no difference in psychological adjustment between adolescents reared in lesbian families and the normative sample of age-matched controls," says Gartrell. "I was surprised to find that on some measures we found higher levels of [psychological] competency and lower levels of behavioral problems. It wasn't something I anticipated."
