The anti-gay are out in the UK.
And they have a little billboard out.
Gay People can get married in all but name prior to the new Gay marriage bill in the UK. Now they can call it “Gay Marriage” rather than civil partnership.
You are here a little too late for this fight. And your argument is daft.
You see Children do best with people who love them. Love is what children needs. A parent is not just someone who’s DNA you carry but someone who loves you. And I know there are some bad parents out there. I am ashamed by mine but they weren’t terrible.
Now there are a variety of implications.
Gays will get married and adopt children. Oh No!
Let us assume that this billboard is correct. That the BEST parents are a man and a woman who’s DNA made up the child.
What about Orphans? Are these kids doomed? Why not let the GLBT couples raise them as loving parents. Unless you are suggesting the series of foster homes and an unstable environment is superior to having two dads/mums.
Or does the Billboard imply that gay marriage will lead to children being taken from “loving, competent birth parents” and given to the GLBT couples? Because that’s not how adoption works.
Or are they saying that gays getting married will increased the divorce rate?
“Cynthia? I am leaving you for Reginald the milkman. The GAY MILK MAN! Yes. Gay marriage is legalised and I realised that our marriage is a sham and I love the cock! Cheerio!”
Won’t someone think of the children.
There are 70,000 odd children in the UK Foster Care system. Unlike our notions of how foster system works the major problem is not the attention these kids receive (AKA we think of Foster Homes like Dickensian workhouses mixed in with the Child Snatcher’s Castle rather than temporary homes provided by people who want to help) but the lack of permanence in their lives. They don’t call these places “home”.
If these children, if even some of these children can find someone who can love them then isn’t that a good thing?
There are so many of them, they aren’t all going to loving heterosexual couples who only have sex with their eyes closed once a year. Some of them are going to people like myself who know where the G-spot is… surgically. I mean face it. The biggest fear is that these kids are being adopted by the GLBT and they may be perverts.
To which I will say this. The biggest selling book in the UK is 50 Shades of Grey and it’s not the GLBT buying it as much as “bored housewives” (what they are bored with is boring vanilla sex).
It’s just such an unfounded fear.
It’s sad to see it in the UK, where we have moved forward and tried to make for a more tolerant world. Have we not learned from the past?
