    the online poll shows that 55% of respondents think that gays should not be allowed to adopt, with over 110,000 people voting.

    please note that the lesbian woman spells her name with an 'ie' not an 'ey'...consider all jokes about the name acknowledged and chuckled over....ahahaha

    It shouldnt be who the parents are sleeping with, it should be the character of the parent themselves. Many people argue that gays, men in particular, are extremely promiscuous and this lifestyle isn't compatible with child-raising. And I think that for some, this is true. People who wish to adopt should have to pass rigorous testing before being approved, gay or straight, but I think that gays who are extremely open with their sexual activities i.e. wear it on their sleeves like everyone cares who they're sleeping with at night and consider sex to be the most important thing in their life should probably not be raising kids until they get their priorities straight.

    why? any slutty moron can father or give birth to a child. why should an adopter (someone who has made a conscious decision to parent) have to face a more rigorous challenge?

    why do people care so much about what celebrities think? do their opinions actually have more merit behind them because they're on the big screen?

    stupid fat dyke!

    thats like saying any crackhead can father a child, so if he wants to adopt one, we should just let him have it??

    You can't control what "any slutty moron BREEDER" does; however you can control who you give adoptive children to. So no test at all? Just walk on in and pick up however many kids you want? Give me a break, dude, and quit waving the gay rights banner, that's not what's up for discussion here.

    If I was the adoption agency, I sure wouldn't want to give a bunch of swinging porn stars access to children, gay or straight. If sex is your lifestyle, hobby and pastime then you should GET YOUR PRIORITIES STRAIGHT before immersing a child in said lifestyle. I said some gays seem to be all about the sexual aspect of their orientation, same with some heteros, and that maybe they wouldn't make the best parents. However, most gays (and heteros) are just two people in love who want to share that love with a child.

    on a somewhat unrelated note:

    why was it such a shock to so many people that Rosie told everyone she was gay? It seemed really obvious to me for some reason....

    ^^^who said they were shocked?? :confused:

    the shocking thing is that she didnt make as big a spectacle of it as she could have if she wanted to.

    No shit! I generally disregard the opinions of celebrities on most issues because these people tend to have little touch with reality. You have Hollywood stars who make millions of dollars a year, and live in their sheltered world of nannies and professional shoppers, acting as advocates for the poor and oppressed of America?!

    a celebreties opinion on, say, the war in afghanistan is no more valuable than anybody else's, perhaps less so.

    the opinion of a lesbian who happens to be a celebrity, and who has adopted children, on the issue of should gays be allowed to adopt is valid because they are a successful person who is involved with the issue. again, duh.

    their opinions may not have more merit, but certain celebrities are UNBELIEVABLY influential to middle class america.

    if you were to do a proper study and make up a list of the most influential people in north america, rosie would be in the top 20.

    oprah would be in the top 5.

    also, since gays/lesbians are still a marginalized community, it helps tremendously to have high profile individuals come out of the closet.

    just like racial acceptance has been influenced by people like mohammed ali, jackie robinson, arthur ashe and tiger woods.

    there's nothing wrong with using celebrity status to help a marginalized community.

    You're right ... I should probably oppose any forms of gun control because a celebrity, Charleton Heston, has successfully proven the merits of safe gun ownership as president of the NRA.

    Re: Adoption

    actually, charleton heston's celebrity status has been trumped by bono - who is against all guns.

    and there's no trumping bono. :p
