    Wow - it's funny how some people twist and spin things around in an effort to try to be cute.

    Gay people can't produce children. Some other person can produce a component to a child and they stick it in the gay person - but the gay couple did not produce that child. It's why it's called ARTIFICIAL insemination.

    "Artificial" is the operative word there.

    Which reminds me of a Family Guy episode where two gay people were getting artificially inseminated.

    Only if there are no qualified married couples available.

    Sometimes the norm is not always right for everyone.

    Re: Do you object to gay couples adopting?

    According to the only collective study on the frequency of homosexuality, the numbers are at 10%. That is the common figure that people quote from the Kinsey report. Though the section that popularization has conveniently skimmed over (probably due to discomfort) is that the realm of bisexuality places the human species at 40% in this category. Most people have homosexual tendencies even if they are not "100% gay".

    I find the anti-gay movement to be perverse, since it denies all scientific evidence that homosexuality is a normal occurence in nature. It uses institutions which rely on non-secular evidence to perpetuate the heteronominalization of society, as if that is the correct thing to do or even their place to do so.

    Given the number of unwanted children in this world, I would base adoption qualifications on a case by case basis, not a group by group basis. Heterosexuals as a whole cannot be said to be more suited to adoption. There are some really screwed up heterosexual couples out there. There are at least three cases a year that I can think of about some nutjob couple that fosters children and puts them in cages. But that's not because they are heterosexual, it's because they are clearly insane.

    Likewise, there are plenty of stable gay people who could give great homes to parentless children. If I were a policy maker, I would rather see a child have the opportunity to go to school and have a stable, consistent livelihood than simply abandon them to souless and inconsistent foster care system in perpetuity, all because a section of society thinks that their homosexual benefactors are going to molest them.

    Get real people. There are bigger priorities than this travesty of a debate.

    I don't think you get it. A qualified married couple that wants to adopt, can adopt assuming they have the financial means to do so. Its not as though orphans in this world are in short supply. There is no need to run commercials on adoption: "We only have a few orphans left, better get them before they are gone!".

    Then THEY are not producing. It is artificial.

    So heterosexuals who are using birth control are having artificial sex?

    There is no shortage of qualified, heterosexual, married couples either. Until there is then gays should not adopt.
