I am for equality all the way across the board, this extends to men, women, and everything in between, it doesn't matter if you are queer or not.
I do not think LGBT people should be coddled, but I think they should have the same rights as heterosexual people. Minority rights imply that they get special rights on the account that they are minorities.have MINORITY RIGHTS and not equality
I have not been convinced either way and even LGBT people having children is a rarity as it is. We do not have real data that is unbiased about the effects of gay parenting. I am fine with the idea of gay adoption, I'm not going to get upset if my gay neighbors adopt a kid. For all I know, they could make wonderful parents.I do not believe that gays should be allowed to openly and legally adopt.
This is a slippery slope argument. It is logically fallacious to equate same-sex marriage(or as I advocate civil unions) with the destruction of the family.Once we allow open same sex marriages with kids, we in effect abolish the family.
No, this is not what psychologists say. Psychologists(especially family psychologists) say that the family unit is the most effective way to raise a child...After all, we all know – as psychologists non-stop tell us, how destructive the family is
... but, we do not know what the ideal family model is, nor are we trying to "redefine" it. As I see it, a family is two parents and kids, though I really don't see a problem with poly people having kids either(in fact I happen to know a poly "quadrupling" that has kids, and they turned out ok).it is a logical step to allow psychologists to redesign the family
What? Freedom, equality, and justice? I thought everyone supported those principles here in the westbut to uphold fundamental VALUES
Again, you're making the assumption that extending the same equivalent rights to LGBT people is going to destroy the institution or damage it in anyway. Note that I do believe that marriage is a cultural and religious thing, and is seperate from the state, I beleive that religious and private institutions should be able to deny adoption or marriage to LGBT people.I really do fail to understand why we are so quick to attack, undermine, subvert, ridicule and destroy institutions that have served us well.
