Just in time for Mothers' Day

by Jeremy Hooper

200805061353We gays and lesbians are having kids like never before. Not destroying or molesting kids, as our opposition would have you believe, but rather creating, loving, raising, nurturing, and rearing them. Our uniquely homologous maternal and paternal instincts are coming alive as the stench of bias ever so slowly lessens.

Some of us are adopting, while others are employing surrogacy methods. In this AFP piece, you can read about two New York men who employed the latter:

Now of course the "pro-family" types would surely write off these parental options as immoral and outside of God's plan. But fortunately for everyone, their self-appointed role as Heaven's hall monitor doesn't give them ownership to morality. And those of us who know the love that gay and lesbian couples have to give also know that a family's righteousness cannot and should be defined by the ease of conception.

So if you're felling the parental itch, gays, don't let anyone tell you that lil' ones are outside of your life plan. The spectrum of "normalcy" is not only big enough to accommodate all families -- it's actually emboldened by the diversity.

Yes, see Terence T's. They have two boys. Just adopted the second and I love to read about their normal lives at school with other parents etc.

I stand by what I said earlier about surrogacy.

And by all means, please sit.
