    THAT'S YOUR OPINION

    Nope, it's the law - as is the fact that Tom and his partner are married.

      Knowing two people with same sex parents, who are now grown up and very happy- and with one of them being a close friend- I’ve let this thread wind me up too much. So I’ll issue my last point.

      I believe, and know from testimony, that all a baby is interested in is survival. That is ensured through the love and support of its parent(s). The baby has no concept on those parents biology and even less interest. It will grow up caring little for it. Until…

      There comes a day when questions get asked and slurs get made. They could get bullied, taunted, made to feel different. (I know it happened to my friend many years back). But the problem is that they don’t understand why. They have done nothing wrong- and neither have their parents.

      So what does this tell us ? It says that the real issue at hand here is not the circumstances of birth and nurture but the opposition to it. So by opposing it the whole concept of same sex parenting is called into question by virtue of the attitudes towards it and not the fact.

      So basically, YOU are the reason why it may not work, YOU are the reason that some get bullied and YOU are the reason why healthy and balanced individuals may be caused to doubt themselves.

      My words sound harsh and I do not wish to make slight of your character on the basis of a simple ignorant viewpoint.

      Perhaps if you met my friend you would understand. But you wouldn’t be in for a comfortable time. When you challenge a person's right to exist, and meet their soft reasoning in person, it can be rather humbling.
      I am not the kind of person who bullies people. Never have, never will. But the fact is that such kids are more likely to get bullied than kids from a two parent (one of each sex) family. Growing up is tough enough anyway for many kids. Why make life even tougher for them by forcing a "two father" disadvantage on them?

      Some people are still alive and kicking in the homophobia club
      I surrender all control
      To the desire that consumes me whole
      Leads me by the hand to infinity
      Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !

      Brilliant post and absolutely spot on.

      When I was at school we occasionlly used to muse about black people, and that everything would be 'better' if they were 'sent back home'. I went to school in Hove. None of us had ever spoken to a black person, or (in most cases) even seen one, close up, in the flesh.

      Ignorance, shared among the ignorant, can be so reassuring, and more-ish.

      I did not accuse you of bullying. But your opinions are a catalyst for it.

      You merely underline my point that it is attitudes like yours and those that take them further that are the cause of life being tougher for them.

      If those attitudes didn't exist then life wouldn't be tougher. It would be no different.

      Unconsciously, although you can't see it, you are actually acknowledging where the real problem is.

      The source of your ignorance is your conditioning not your ability to reason.
      I've lost my way. If anyone should find it, do return it quickly. I should imagine it quite rusty by now.

      Left UK years ago - but many people looking in can see there is an agenda to make you all love gay people and transgenders. Even the "secret life of 5 year olds" programme had kids all cross dressing.

      In the UK men are being turned into girls, and the women are being pushed into the masculine. And nobody is allowed to speak out thro fear.

      Love the footy, miss the footy, but wouldn't live in the UK again if you paid me. Too negative, too many look ill / stressed.....and no courage left.

      Doesn't always work out well: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...hyde-character

      People of the same sex adopting babies is a reatime experiment with little or no data about what affect it has or not on the child growing up, whether being bullied at school for it or other. It just opens up a new can of worms and gives people a new way to abuse the system if they are that way inclined, at the expense of a child.

      It's all hip, cool and really out there for the rich and famous but I am cynical and haven't bought into this fad as a genral rule.
