and nearly everyone who works in adoption would tell you that many, many, many other factors are far, far more important to an adopted child's "success" than the sexual orientation of his/her parents.

can you name me certain essential parenting techniques that a woman could never, ever provide on the basis of her gender and thus must rely upon her husband to perform because he is a male, and vice versa?

Irvine, melon: It's not that I'm giving up, I'm just taking a break from the lameness. You know I'll always be on the correct side, and I'll fight the good fight, but this thread is getting too stupid for me right now.

So are you giving up being an angry, white woman?

before you go, can you give us a list of things that Steve can do because of his gender that you never, ever could do because of your gender?

like math? opening the pickle jar? changing the oil?

because as we all know, homophobia isn't really just sexism.

You mean besides helping girls deal with their sexual development? Ditto for boys?

Just off the top of my head....

I think JiveTurkey's post of "My Two Dads" proves my point better than anything I could say...

Greg Evigan's hair! *shudder*

Yes because all of those hetero couples who are just saying "abstain" and are too scared to talk about sexual development with their children are doing a bang up job. I wonder if Palin did a better job than the two dads?
