The crux of the argument - there are some, like BL and myself, who really don't see a difference on how gays have a relationship, raise children, live their lives in general (aside from their sexuality). They're people, like anyone. There are others, like Mike and tec, who think that the way gays live is so different than heterosexuals that they have to be treated differently.
So different that they have to be treated differently?
I think individuals are different. Couples are different. The traditional family unit, the one that's been around forever, consists of a mom and a dad. To the point I made earlier, children are not kind. Being "different" may be fine and dandy when you're older but it's not something to strive for when you're a child. My two dads is different. I don't know that it's such a great idea. It may be fantastic or it may be a ******* childhood nightmare. I just don't think we know enough to be passing out children to every gay couple because they want one. And I think adoption services are probably afraid to decline a gay couple's request because of discrimination charges.
