Are you asking this because you assume he's gay or because of his latest arrest? No one who looks at child porn or has abused or hurt a child should be able to adopt...gay or straight.

First off, he's dead.

Should Anna Nicole Smith be permitted to adopt a child? Since we all know she represents heterosexuality like Robert Mapplethorpe represents homosexuality...

NEWS FLASH: Pedophiles are NOT gay, regardless of the gender of the children they abuse. Pedophiles cannot technically said to be gay or straight because they fixate on *children*, and they have never sexually matured to an adult level by which they could be classified as "gay" or "straight." Let's not bring the issue of pedophilia or child molestation into this debate, as it perpetuates the VERY UNTRUE stereotype that pedophiles are overwhelmingly gay (and, even worse, that gay people are overwhelmingly pedophiliac).

And what the hell does Mapplethorpe have to do with anything, anyway? Are you referring to his homoerotic photography?

Umm..
I agree w this statement..altho I do see the full figured model being a bit bi-curious..

And nobody needs to get hostile in this discussion.

just cause you dont agree with what the person said, does not mean you should attack them in this manner.

in a discussion, different view points are presented, for your information. and believe it or not, you may not find yourself agreeing with what everyone has to say.

Heres a question that has to w the topic..regarding the best interest of kids as I think Lilly was after..

I ask these questions w the sincerest of intentions..
Please bear w me.

Ppl in the gay movement say or claim the population is 10 per cent gay.( Dont know if that is accurate but will accept for discussion's sake.)

It has also been reported that the vast majority of child abusers are hetrosexual.
Well mathamatically that makes sense, as the world is 90 per-cent..hetrosexual. Sickening but true.

So my question is -do the numbers hold out THAT less than 10 percent of convicted child molesters/child murderers are gay/bi-sexual?
or
Is it 15 percent
or
Is it my 5 per cent?

If it is 1 out of 4 peodophiles are gay/bi-sexual there would be a problem..

If it is 1 outta 15..or 1 outta 20..well then that would bode well for gay ppl..

This is not to bait anyone-(as I do not know the answer) but
only want to have a correct perspective.

Does anybody have correct/factual numbers?

Sincerely-
diamond

Peace.

I am soooooo sorry.


It was 100% appropriate to say that adopted parents cannot love a child as much as a biological parent. It is a very kind thing to say. I stand corrected. And it was said in such a polite manner.....taking onto consideration the feelings of others.

My humblest of apologies for typing out of anger. Having been adopted myself....my personal feelings got in the way.

I eagerly wait to see you correct people who have typed so many other hurtful, and even more hateful things than I.
If I sound cranky I am.....just got home from the hospital....been there for five hours.

Diamond, leave pedophiles out of the discussion. The question wasn't "Should pedophiles be allowed to adopt children?" Your equating pedophiles and gay men is offensive even to me, and I cut you a lot of slack, maybe too much. So knock that shit off in this thread. Start another thread for it, because we're not discussing that here.

we are talking about-
children
thier safety

Pedopliles/child murderers come from all walks of life.

Was looking for proportional numbers..that is all.
