I mean, you don't consider 2 fathers and their child a family, so obviously you think they're doing something significantly different.
Maybe the "way gays live" was the wrong wording for you, but I think you're missing the point and maybe being dense on purpose. You see a significant enough difference between homosexuals and heterosexuals when it comes to being couples and raising children to treat them differently. I don't.
To me, a family is a mother, a father, and children. What's missing in your example above is mom. That, and you have an extra dad.
I'm fine with homosexual couples. Just don't call their formal union "marriage", because marriage is between a man and a woman.
As far as raising children, in a case of adoption, I believe that adopted children are better served in a traditional family with a mom and a dad, because I believe men and woman each bring something different to the parenting experience and providing for a better rounded experience for the child growing up.
What parts of the above three things are you not understanding.
