    The argument is bull****.

    I became a father a week and a half ago when my beautiful wife gave birth to a baby boy.

    We're trying our best, but we're by no means perfect parents and from what I've experienced so far, all a child really needs is loving, supporting parents who give a crap about it...

    This world is far from perfect, there's ALOT of bad parents out there and again, good parents are good parents, they'll never be perfect but if those good parents happen to be both of the same sex... so be it.
    Congratulations to you Jet!

    Cuz, you know, marriage is all about making babies and stuff.

    How am I doin' on the sanity level?
    While we're at it, let's outlaw contraception and masturbation and sodomy and oral sex. Sex is only for making babies, and marriage is only for providing a stable environment for breeding.

    Hell, why aren't we arranging marriages based on genetic tests?

    Thanks for all the good wishes guys

    Well... bet this thread didn't go as well as Zimmer thought it would.

    I bet he was genuinely excited and thought he'd finally beaten those godless liberals.

    Sterilization for both parents and all children, obviously. Survival of the species is what it's all about, so we've got to weed out the weak genetic links.

    We should also seriously consider relocation for any who are sterile, have been proven to have corrupted genetics, or who refuse to breed. I'm thinking ship them into the heartland where there's plenty of space for genetic degenerates, leaving the centers of commerce and culture (i.e. cities) open only to those who promote the survival of the species.

    He's simply advancing the notion that a family is not created by society and therefore should not be controlled by it. The fact that he's gay does not give credence to his argument but rather protects him from attacks that he's not being sensitive. We live in a whatever goes goes society, he's saying that there are inherent values in the things we do and that they can effect us. That marriage grew out of the man/woman/child natural model. I think what he means is that, yes, the unconditional love experienced in a union is all around the same, but raising and creating a family is different. Not to say that a gay couple wouldn't be able to raise a child properly, or that single parents can't, (having been the child of a single parent), but the obvious ideal circumstance would be a mother and a father.

    Please do not respond in any way that suggest I am against gays in any sense, I am not! I'm simply advancing my opinion. This isn't to say AT ALL that gay people are not allowed the same life, but we can't ignore nature in this discourse for the sake of being sensitive.

    Did it though? I don't think the history of marriage was ever that clear cut. Can we question that assumption?

    Why is the word "gay" in quotes in the headline?

    Social conservative writers argue that there is no such thing as a homosexual orientation, only homosexual behavior, and so they refuse to acknowledge the identity label of "gay" which is why they put it in quotes.
