Yes, The Children

8 thoughts on “Yes, The Children”

  1. I think it’s tricky to see the right for same sex marriage as an open door to adopt children as well. I think you should see it for what it is: the right to get married. Nothing else. I have beautiful gay friends, living together for over 35 years now. They too said, that they are not meant to be parents, yet they appreciate the right to be able to make their relationship legal and official and in doing so have the same rights as a heterosexual couple has.

    1. The issue I have isn’t so much gays adopting but that other, more nefarious groups can use the legalization of “gay marriage” as a means of support for legalizing their issues. And I know that most gays are not abusers. But there has already been a conference in England about pedophilia where the argument was that it is a normal sexual orientation because 1 in 35 men have a sexual attraction towards children. They want to make it a “normal ” sexual orientation. You and I and most everyone else understand that this is horribly wrong. But there is still that movement to support it as a “normal” orientation and “gay marriage” legalization could be used as an argument in support of legalizing some form of abuse against children.

      My argument is mostly how children have become a commodity rather than people. Most gays truly want to help children, I get that, by giving them a home and love. But these children soon figure out/learn, if they haven’t already, that families are made up of a father and a mother and children. Not two moms or two dads. But there are gays, and straight, that use children as a means of manipulation to demand “rights” and whatnot and have no care for the child.

      Mostly, my concern is the children. And most gays are not the violent, promiscuous haters they are portrayed as by some people. I have a much bigger issue with their violent, vocally abusive straight supporters who shout down anyone who doesn’t agree with their support.

      1. I totally see your point. What I don’t understand though, is the logic of such a group. How could you possibly legalize something abusive? Same sex marriage has nothing to do with forcing someone minor to agree on something definitely not normal. The children should be of concern For everyone. I appreciate your post and this comment and I totally see your point. And yes, I agree with your very last sentence.

      2. It isn’t logical. I don’t see it becoming legal anytime soon but it still is an issue. Most people, even those who are dealing with the disordered sexual attraction to children, see this as wrong. But there are those that see any sexual orientation as okay, regardless if it involves the abuse of another, especially a child. Because it involves sex and sex has become this defining characteristic of who we are. Society has become obsessed with sex.

        I’m not sure where it started, but there is now “belief” (I’m not sure what to call it) that even children are sexual beings and can experience sexual feelings so it is okay and should be encouraged to explore their sexuality at a young age with whomever they want.

        I know here in Oregon, until this year, there was a sexual info seminar that gave out explicit and graphic sexual material to children as young as 11. 11 years old. With the focus on encouraging kids this young to engage in some of these behaviors and sex acts, as long as it doesn’t end in pregnancy. A news investigation got it shut down this year but kids were being exposed to this stuff and even were disgusted and ashamed by it. They didn’t want to know about some of the things they were exposed to. They’re kids, not sex fiends.

        Thanks for your comments. I appreciate that you respectfully responded, even if you may or may not agree with me. I’ve had too many trolls that prefer name calling and abuse.

      3. I don’t understand trolls. Everyone is allowed to have an opinion. The respectful exchange of your opinion can actually be pretty inspiring for both sides. It’s what I’m all about.

      4. Yeah, I don’t get trolls either. I refuse to feed them. I have no problem with disagreeing but do so respectful. People are far more willing to listen if you are calm and can articulate your point of view. Name calling, foaming at the mouth, shouting just shows me that you are emotionally reacting and do not have a well thought out position so I shouldn’t take you seriously at this time.

        The only acceptable trolls are those toy trolls from the 90s that had neon colored hair. At least those let you play with their hair. 🙂
