    Here NEP something for you to chew on. The dudes one of YOU.

    'Gayby boom': Children of gay couples speak out - CNN.com

    family values, small government and his lesbian mothers' right to marry.

    1 of 3 Levey is part of the "gayby boom" generation. The 29-year-old management consultant is the son of a lesbian couple who chose to have a child through artificial insemination. He's their only child.
    Critics of same-sex marriage say people such as Levey will grow up shunned and sexually confused. Yet he says he's a "well-adjusted heterosexual" whose upbringing proves that love, not gender, makes a family.

    You can imagine what my parents thought when I was 13 and listening to Rush Limbaugh everyday," Levey says. "But my family had strong family values. I was raised in a loving, caring household that let me be a free thinker."

    You can take the man out of the country, but you cannot take the country out of the man.

    I have no problem with lesbians adopting children, gay men on the other hand, no way.

    For whatever reason my wife and I have lived next to a lesbian couple with a child or children since we were married ... various places of residence. Every one was nice, the kids were nice ... it was like a regular marriage of 2 happy sometimes miserable people like the rest of us parents. small sampling but real and not from the media. We presently have 3 such households on our block ... all nice and excellant parents just like any other couple who care for their children. One is a white couple who adopt African-American kids ... very, very nice family.
    All those kids go to my sons local public school with him ...

    Not sure if I can put in to words, it is just a gut reaction. I am not in to lesbian porn so this has nothing to do with that, but lesbians seem to be a more "natural" situation, lesbianism doesn't seem to be as much about the sex as it does the companionship. Plus the white elephant in the room is than women are 99.9% less likely to molest a child.

    I see your point even though they're based on personal perception. Here's a useless anectdote that'll do nothing to settle this arguement:

    My friend (no-it's not me) is trying to get custody of his son and daughter from his drug-addict ex-wife. He can't prove anything yet, so he's been striking out in court so far. The reason is because of prejudiced attitudes like yours. Your stats may or may not be right -I haven't looked- but fathers have a tough time getting their kids away from psychotic or abusive ex's because everyone thinks women are always better than men when it comes to child-rearing (that didn't sound good). There's a lot of crazy women who get away with murder because of anti-male prejudice.

    God, it really pains me to say I agree with you, wistah dude, but you happen to be absolutely correct. The Shylock lawyers figured it out a long time ago that the way for them to make a very lucrative living was to defend the woman's "rights" to the child, no matter what. After all, the men/fathers/husbands had all the money.... or they USED to have all the money. Now, thanks to the criminal class known as trial lawyers in America, women can usually steal at least one-half of the father's wealth, and the father gets to be labeled a "sicko, cheat, liar, reprobate". Some incentive for men to enter marriage.

    I hate most lawyers and the legal system which allows such unspeakable crap to happen. Judgment Day is coming.
