i just read this article about two sydney men who became the first same-sex couple in nsw to both be declared the parents of a baby that was born through surrogate, and scrolled down further to see the coments that people left, and found these.
i wish i had a way with words like i know a lot of you do so i could say something more eloquent and elaborate than this: those people should go fuck themselves. it’s not a choice, it’s not disgraceful, it’s not selfish or irresponsible to have both the fathers names on their kid’s birth certificate, a child’s sexuality isn’t determined by their parentage, or what environment they were raised in.
I really have to wonder what its like to have a mindset like one of these people.
It just seems so pointless, and so generally horrible to me that I can’t understand and I have to wonder just why they think that.
Why can’t people just be fucking happy for others.
Because Heterosexual couples only raise sane heterosexual children who have not a single problem in their lives.
I just-I have no words for people who are this small-minded, the fact people believe that a same-sex couple aren’t capable of raising a child with as much love, devotion and care as a heterosexual couple is beyond my comprehension-there is literally no logic or justification for disgusting comments like those.
And at the same time, the fact they’re so narrow-minded to believe heterosexual couples are always perfect is pathetic.
A parent, or parents are meant to support, and guide a child-and the sex of either parent has nothing to do with how effectively that can be done. Regardless of any type of couple, combination of parents-even single parents, a child will encounter issues and problems-because that’s what happens while you grow up, and it’s up to the child to decide what they want to be-and what they believe and feel they want to do with themselves, its up to the parents to teach them what’s right and wrong.
And looking over those comments again, I can safely say they are the wrong sort of things to say about a pair who has just welcomed a child into the world-way to rain on whats meant to be a happy and beautiful moment for any human being.
