    ^ My son has been raised similarly. When very young kids play with each other, "race" is not an issue. They don't even have to speak the same mother tongue, they just play together.

    "Race" is not real, it's an invention.

    I think that to be a good example to kids, you shouldn't focus on arbitrary differences in people.
    If you treat, gay and straight similarly, kids will mimic the adults and do the same.
    Focusing to much on the differences is counter productive from my perspective.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Race is a biological concept, it is very real, the social constructs attached to it are invented, but race, in of itself is real.

    But it's just that no one seems very clear as to what they are. Here's a list. For each one, can you tell me whether it's a race, an ethnicity or something else?

    Causasian
    Jewish
    Arab
    Slav
    Scot
    African
    Khoisan
    Chinese
    Hispanic
    Turkic
    Celt
    Falasha
    Aborigine
    Koori

    I'm not make any point, I'm just interested in the disparity between scientific definitions of race, cultural ones and popular (mis)conceptions. Phenotypical similarities and shared culture are the only criteria that we can use to make these distictions, aren't they? If so, and because the variations at the margins of each marker are so blurred, and increasingly so with more widespread migration patterns, there's little clarity to be had. If anyone's interested, perhaps I ought to take this onto a new thread.

    I'm entirely fine with that. Kids need parents, it doesn't really matter much what the gender of the parents happen to be, so long as it's a loving family.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    It is difficult to believe that gay parents wish their child growing up as straight.
