    And trust me, there are others here that are just like you...if not worse. We encourage lively debate here at the DP and censor no one for thier views alone. But ad homs are a no no. Attack the post, not the person.
    That is a "personal attack?" It is crude, yes, but an attack on you?

    PS - You know what? **** it. If we can't talk and be ourselves. Screw it.

    Sorry,

    But more to the point, are you at least a little bit bothered that the child in your scenario has no inkling of what it feels like to be loved by his mother? HIS MOTHER?
    Nope I'm not bothered. There are thousands and thousands of kids in this country that have no idea who thier mother is...even more that have no idea who their father is. Its just a fact of life. Why be bothered by something that you cannot change?

    You can be yourself all that you want. You do not need to attack someone to get your point across. I encourage you to stick around. Read the threads/posts around here. You may find out that it is quite fun..and can be a challenge at times...to talk to people without having to attack them directly. Of course if you absolutely MUST attack someone you can always post down in the basement. (scroll down farther and you will find a section called "the Basement".)

    What I object to is that arguments i have made that are on-topic have been derailed with this pointless bull****.

    And you have yet to reply to them. Do I have to scoll back, copy, paste, and repeat.

    Just cuz I brought up titty bars?

    Sorry. So far I'm not so crazy about DP.

    I'm sorry, I thought I had replied to your points? Which ones specifically have I not replied to?

    Thanks.

    Remember the one about a child who has been given to two gay guys,by a mother who was paid to be inseminated and to give birth? And the child never knowing a mother's love?

    That one.

    I see now you did reply. And you said no, you are not bothered that a child grows up without knowing a mother's love, because it is a fact of life for so many.

    How sad.

    Responded to in post #52.

    However what you write here has different connonations than your original question. So in regards to this one I would ask you to clairify for me. Does the "mothers love" HAVE to come from a woman? Or does the child just need love from two parents? (I would warn you to watch how you respond to this as I am setting you up to be proven wrong)

    OMG! I'm Sooo scaaared!

    How can a mother's love come from anyone but a mother?

    PS: Your reply in #52 was lame. And truly sad. I pity any child under your tutelage.

    When you say "a mothers love" you assume that it must come from a woman. In fact a "mothers love" is nothing more than a description based on gender. A "mothers love" is nothing more than just, when put simply, the womans love for a child. A man can love a child just as much as a woman can. Does that make the mans love different from the womans? No it isn't. Love for a child is still love for a child no matter the gender.

    Now what you may be refering to is the different aspects of what is traditionally known as a "mothers love" vs a "fathers love". Those aspects being of either tenderness (mothers love) or sternness (fathers love). But these aspects of tradition is false as a mother can be just as stern as a father can and visa versa.
