that's getting into eugenics and morality and I refuse to have an opinion other than to give that discussion a wide berth.
Krzysiu said:How they raise the child after its born is a completely different matter and there is no strong evidence that shows the sexual orientation or gender identities of the parents will benefit or hinder the child's emotional growth.
k-grant said:My mother has asthma and guess what, so do I. Does this mean she shouldn't have had kids. An unhealthy baby is a risk of any pregnancy regardless of the persons gender identity.

Though I don't disagree with this person having every right to have a child, I personally think this is a little fucked up (if this story isn't a hoax).
This world is too full of babies that don't need to be here.
I'm with the "straight guys" on this one. Just like slow adults shouldn't be having children, certain people should just live their lives and do their thing. And NOT have kids. Like hick cousins who fuck each other. Or poor families in India. Or single parents with no fucking money.
STOP BRINGING KIDS INTO THIS WORLD THAT AREN'T GOING TO HAVE A GOOD LIFE.
And yes, I'm gay. And yes, my kids are gonna have a fucking awesome life. I can only WISH I had gay parents. But to think that I have three eyes cuz my transgendered dad/mom wanted to break medical and social barriers? Well, thanks a lot asshole.

k-grant said:Mofo, your understanding of genetics seems rather rudimentary. I went to elementary school with a girl who had two deaf parents, both were born that way. They had four kids and all four children had perfect hearing. Even if one or all children had been deaf, does this mean that their lives would not have been worth living?
Bottom line, "slow" parents does not necessarily equal "slow" child. "normal" parents does not necessarily equal "normal" child.
Unfortunately, there's no reliable prenatal way to predict who will be "fucked up". All a crap shoot really.
As for what a great parent you'll make, i shudder to think what kind of a parent you would be toward a "slow" or otherwise disabled child.
