How are we any different? **LGBT Related/Long/NO BASHING**
Ok, so I posted something last night, and it kind of lead into a heterosexual vs. homosexual matter. Wasn't my intentions, but one mother replied to my post simply saying "no comment". Looking at her screen name, it makes me wonder if it's because I am a lesbian and married to my female partner. So it got me thinking. The biggest argument straight people have against LGBT is that it's against God and that we are committing a sin. MOST of the time the second argument is that we won't be able to have children the "natural" way. First things first....
I am a christian. So is my wife. We are ok with God, so we are both pretty confident that when we die we will not "burn in hell" as most anti-gay folks say.
Now on to the other topic... Same sex relationships can't reproduce. Actually we can, we just need help. People say, it's unnatural, it's not meant to be, God made a woman and a man so that together they can reproduce, and my favorite, same sex parents will turn the innocent children gay and worse, molest them. Really?? How is "Us" needing assistance in getting pregnant, or having a surrogate (for the guys that obviously can't carry) any different/unnatural than a straight couple needing assistance when one CAN'T get pregnant or carry a child? How is "Us" going to the doctor to be artificially inseminated anymore unnatural than a heterosexual woman going through the same thing? How is "Us" wanting to adopt a child to give a loving home and family to any different than a heterosexual couple adopting a child? Oh, I forgot, because we will turn them gay or molest the child. Ok, saying or believing that is about as dumb as me saying a heterosexual couple can't adopt because they might turn the child sterile, or they may take away parts (uterus, ovaries) so the child is just like the adopted parent. Ridiculous, right?? Absolutely!
Now, let me ask this: How many heterosexual couples do you know, read about, or hear about getting pregnant unplanned? Hundrends? Thousands? How many teen moms get pregnant by accident? Same, hundreds? Thousands? Now, how many homosexual couples do you know, read about, or hear about getting pregnant unplanned? Hundreds? Thousands? No. the answer is ZERO.
We PLAN to have our children. Some couples spend THOUSANDS of dollars just to have children. Whether it's to be inseminated or adoption. I personally don't know a single LGBT person that has a child or children that PURPOSELY got pregnant so they could go on PA, housing assistance or anything else. Not saying it hasn't happened, just I don't know of anyone. I'm also NOT bashing heterosexual couples that are on any kind of assistance. I'm not on assistance, but I am a supporter of it, IF it's needed and not abused.
This is in no way to offend anyone. I just started thinking about a previous post and I was curious if anyone had anything to say about this.
Happy Lesbian, married to my Bestfriend =) Life can't get much better!!
