    Plain english you would've said "most" if you weren't implying that straights as a whole do it because of defects. Yes, I'm nitpicking a bit...in part because you nitpicked that I was "strawmaning" you becasue your words, that could've easily been taken either way because you didn't specific either way, implied one way where your intent was to imply a different way. If you're going to nitpick, I'll do it right back.

    what? can't you read?
    Sure I can. And alright then. As long as you hold yourself to the same with regards to you not going about it "the way nature intended" for all your kids, I got no issue with it.

    I already did it the way nature intended...twice. I just went out of my way to be a good citizen and take a couple more out of the overcrowded system. I'm just asking gay couples to do the same.... aka holding them to the same standard I hold myself.

    I do not know..
    Certainly not "family" in the normal sense.
    I still do not think that "same sex" or homosexuals should be allowed to adopt, but if we run out of qualified people then, yes , it may be better than nothing.

    Is there anything wrong with the practice when Straight Women do the same things to have children. They are defective if you think about it. Gays aren't defective in the sense that they have no ability to make a child. They aren't in a situation normally that would allow for that so they use artificial means not because of defect but by choice.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    If you think the topic of the thread is stupid then take it up with the OP.

    again, you are just looking for something to get butthurt over. get over yourself. not everyone/thing is out to offend you.
    Whatever.

    What constitutes the "normal" sense? Only 1/4th of families in the United States are the traditional nuclear family of a mom, dad, and children.

    And why would a same sex couple not be qualified to adopt? What do you know that the National Association of Social Workers and the American Pediatric Association does not know?

    they choose to be in that situation, straight women don't choose to be infertile. live with the choice and adopt. there are plenty of kids out there that need homes.

    I think same sex couple should be encouraged, almost forced, to adopt.
