Recently, Barbara Walters interviewed Sir Elton John and his partner regarding their new baby. Later that week, a local radio station posted the question: Can gay/lesbian parents raise a straight child.
I found this to be very appalling. Why is this news worth??? Why do we as a society care if a gay/lesbian couple have a child, or even adopt a child???? Is this suppose to be just morally wrong because of their sexual preference??? It seems we concentrate more on the sexual preference of the couple rather than just two loving people wanting to have children.
What about asking the questions can a heterosexual couple raise a straight child??? Can they raise a child that doesn't turn out to be a criminal??? Can they raise a child with a disability???
We as a society need to stop focusing on who's sleeping with who, because that's what it actually boils down to. It's not the parenting of a child, which is a valid concern, it's who's the parent and their sexual lifestyle.
Gimme a break!!!
Why me folks question??? It this really an issue because of a real concern or because the media makes it a concern????
Why me?? Why not?
