You two seem to be very acquainted.
There are a bunch of questions that various posters have asked you that you so adamantly refused to answer.
Such as "Prove that you Deity even exists".
Oh wait,my bad,you already admitted that you can't.
The legal definition of marriage is not immutable like the Laws of Physics.
It can,and it will,be changed.
Whether you like it or not.
So what other Commandments are your pride and vanity going to cause you to break this thread?
Sperm donor ordered to pay child support to lesbian couple despite him giving up rights to the child | Mail Online
not directly related to gay marriage but....this is ****ed up. lesbian couple takes out an ad in craigslist looking for a sperm donor so they can have a kid. guy responds to ad, makes donation, signs away all rights to kid, lesbian couple splits up and mom can't pay the bills...now the state has ordered child support from the sperm donor.

But I admit my error.
Unlike some people on this thread....
Ok.what does a single case in Kansas,have to do with this thread?
It doesn't matter what the sexual orientation of the sperm recipient.
The implications of that article is that any sperm donor can be liable for child support.
I suspect that decision willbe overturned on appeal.
the problem in this case is that Kansas does not recognize SSM. this couple had adopted 8 (iirc) kids prior to contacting the sperm donor. all of them were considered single parent adoptions and only one partner put on the paperwork. (question: since the state went after the sperm donor for $$$$ to support this girl...why didn't they go back after the bio parents of the adopted kids for support? seems to me that 'the state" was just being petty and trying to punish this guy for helping a lesbian couple have a kid) the same with the girl born via sperm donor. only her mother was listed as a parent. the other lady in the relationship had no legal rights or responsibilities in regards to this child.
this will be an issue in all SSM where children are born, since only one partner will be biologically tied to the child. as I said, definitely not a reason to be against SSM, but definitely one of the details that needs to be ironed out in any legislation regarding SSM.
I also found it interesting that after being together for 8 years, this couple split up (relatively shortly after the birth of this child) and the "other" female from this couple is now in a relationship with a man
If Kansas allowed SSM,it would be the other partner that would have to pay child support,not the sperm donor.
And aren't the names of sperm donors supposed to be confidential?
I agree that Kansas is being rather petty,and I suspect this case will be thrown out on appeal.
