Growing Up With Two Moms: The Untold Children’s View
The Public Discourse ^ | 8-6-2012 | Robert Oscar Lopez

Posted on 03/19/2014 5:30:46 PM PDT by TurboZamboni

The children of same-sex couples have a tough road ahead of them—I know, because I have been there. The last thing we should do is make them feel guilty if the strain gets to them and they feel strange.

We were told it was about consenting adults in private.

When do the children consent to being brought into a self-described “alternative lifestyle” home?

>>I had no male figure at all to follow, and my mother and her partner were both unlike traditional fathers or traditional mothers. As a result, I had very few recognizable social cues to offer potential male or female friends, since I was neither confident nor sensitive to others. Thus I befriended people rarely and alienated others easily. - See more at: http://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2012/08/6065/#sthash.qqrWAH68.dpuf<<

Say no more. Gays who bring up kids and womyn who have kids on purpose without getting married are selfish SoS’ who only care about themselves and not what their self-centered choices do to the innocent kids.

These kids are understandabluy screwed up in the head since they don’t have the proper roles HUMAN BEINGS need as children.

By letting 2% of the population dictate biology is not only futile, it is socially suicidal.

Going out of your way to make life more diffcult for your kids is more common than rare these days.

Very interesting and affirmative article. I have argued, till it am blue in the face, with Liberals about children in gay households. Mainly about adoption by gays/lesbians. My questions that they can never answer are: why do you feel you can decide a child will be growing up without a female AND a male role model? Do you not believe your mother and your father brought entirely different experiences to you? Did you benefit from having both role models? Liberals use NO LOGIC.........just FEELINGS. The child’s needs take a backseat to the wants of the gay/lesbian parents.

I know a liberal who’s all for gay marriage. I’d love to see his ex-wife become gay, marry a dyke and have her raising his kids. Oh, how I’d love it! I’d feel sorry for the kids but they have a lez mother anyway and a stupid father.

You’re exactly right. It’s all about me-me-me and these kids are sadly going to pay a price for it. Homos have always been around, but the old way was better in that adults consorted with like partners if they chose to, but the damage was limited to themselves.

And per your same line of reasoning, I’m not sure these single-parent adoptions are a great idea either. Maybe Laura Ingraham and others have enough male friends to provide good role models, but I can’t help but think this is just a less damaging version of the same thing.

The Bible got it right.

Never take it out on the child.

That being said, always be honest and blunt to those who put themselves above the welfare of a child.

Two deviant raising a child, with no Father, is child abuse.

I met a gal who had “two mommies”. She says it messed her up when she was younger. She did not know it at the time but she knew something wasn’t right about their relationship.

Last time I spoke with her she was married and doing OK.

Why should kids feel strange at having 2 mommies but have no clue who their sperm donor uh I mean Daddy is? Its perfectly normal right? Or 2 daddy’s and no idea who the egg donor er Mommy is?

God's Grace at work.

Nothing good comes out of deviants "parenting" a child.

And the child is so messed up now. Talk about gender-confused. She puts on such a “I am so happy I am a lesbian” schtick that looks so tragically hollow to me.

Those selfish women absolutely messed with this child’s life.

The American Idol contestant MK has four moms.

And I notice MK seems like a miserable, depressed human being.

I kind of feel sorry for her. She never had a chance at normalcy.
