Why Gay Couples Can Never Be Good, Better, or Best Parents
We've heard it from the media. We've heard from my neighbors. Now we've heard it from our kids' friends. "I know some lesbians who are such good parents." "At least it's better than abusive heterosexual parents." "Some of the best parents I know are gay."
First of all, how do they know? Are they the child of gay parents? Are they being raising by them? Do they live with them? Are they an innocent captive child audience to homosexual behaviors? Sure, the child may be fed, dressed, and housed, taught to wash hands and brush teeth and say the alphabet, get plenty of hugs and kisses and toys. But what else are they getting? They are getting a firsthand education in selfishness and delusion, not to mention a perverse sex education.
Here is a reality check:
1. Children do best in every way when raised by both a mother and a father because male and female complement each other, that is, they each add something new. Gay couples are the same sex and therefore do not complement each other in important ways. Their union does not contribute anything of lasting value to a child.
2. Gay couples cannot mate. They do not do and never can do the thing that can make babies. That's why they shouldn't be allowed to mock mate-rimony. Societies sanction marriage (that is, two people of opposite sex forming a union with the understanding that they will do the thing that can make babies, whether they get babies or not) with the security of human posterity in mind. Since gays can never make offspring together, their relationships do not deserve to be legitimized as marriage or anything like it.
3. The "I deserve to be parent no matter what" thing was cemented with Murphy Brown, the TV show that in a 1992 episode should have shocked America when the main character, a single working woman got pregnant and decided to celebrate being a single mother. Once we accepted elective single unwed parenting, elective gay parenting was next; if kids could do just as well without a dad or a mom, wouldn't two dads or two moms be even better? (No. See #1.)
4. Gay couples who finagle a way to have the biological child of one of them are thinking only of themselves, as if a human infant is a pet, a trophy, or a sign of personal fulfillment. The fact that they must finagle a way--no exceptions--should be a hint that it is unnatural. They do not care that they, personally, are purposefully and willfully finagling to bring a child into the world deprived of both a mother and a father, one of its biological parents. Such a situation used to be considered a tragedy and is now being done on purpose and praised.
5. Gay couples are 2-6X more likely to include instability, drug abuse, domestic violence, promiscuity, and the like, than heterosexual married couple parents. Doesn't sound good, better, or best, compared to anything, does it?
6. Gay parents are modeling and teaching in unspoken and probably spoken ways a perverted and often extreme and promiscuous view of human sexuality. Before accepting the idea that gays make good parents, everyone should read Out From Under, by Dawn Stefanowicz, a heart-wrenching personal narrative on being raised by a gay father.
7. The scope of legal ramifications of gay parenthood are a nightmare. As always, it is the children who suffer most when parents go wrong, and gay relationships open up a whole new set of unimaginable problems when children are involved.
We suggest people think about the best and long-term interests of innocent children and review what it is gay people actually do with each other before sympathizing and praising the modern travesty we call gay parenting.
