Title: I have to ask..
Post by: Gataru on November 03, 2008, 06:33:25 pm
Are all these yes on prop 8 banners on purpose? or is it just random advertising? id hate to see these blatant lies to trick uneducated voters have some kind of point on a forum such as this.  :fruit:

This is strange. This is the second site we've had random "Yes on Prop 8" banners on. That sucks :/

Gay people should be able to enter a legal union of some sorts similar to marriage.
However, they should not be able to adopt because it's unhealthy for the kids.
How do two gay men comfort a girl going through her first period?
How do 2 lesbians help a girl who has a crush on a guy?
They can't because they never did it themselves.

I'm not
I'm fine with them as people, I just don't think they'd make good parents. Some might, but not all

I'm sorry?
How do two straight people help a child who has a crush on another child of the same sex?
They can't because they never did it themselves.

I have to admit I'm glad you didn't make a post saying "it's unhealthy for kids, it turns them all into fags", which is what I was honestly expecting when I read that second line.


EDIT: Woah triple ninja'd.

...some straight people don't make good parents either. Should they have the right to have kids/adopt? Perhaps not, according to your argument.

But the chance of straight parents having a gay kid is far lower than gay parents having a striaght kid.

Social services check out people when they adopt and people who can't take care of kids are turned away. But some can still adopt. No system is perfect.

...yeah, but there are less gay parents in the first place.
I believe the chances of a person being gay is around 10%?

Chances of parents being gay, kids being gay = 10% x 10% = 1%
Chances of parents being gay, kids being straight = 10% x 90% = 9%
Chances of parents being straight, kids being gay = 90% x 10% = 9%
Chances of parents being straight, kids being straight = 90% x 90% = 81%

Sorry, but you might want to do your maths again. There should be around the same number of gays with straight kids as straights with gay kids, 9%.
..my maths might be wrong, I'm pretty tired this morning. Sorry if that's the case.

Yeah, I know. It's just a highly overused and utterly retarded argument used by ignorant homophobes.

Exactly? So, homosexuals who would be bad parents are turned away, but the ones who would make good parents should be given the right to adopt? I fail to see any reason to separate them into groups based on sexual preference; either you make good parents, or bad parents.

Gay couples lower the birth rate. Every humans ultimate goal should be procreation and the fulfillment of our race. That's the only way to satisfy our genetic impulse.

Hey guys! Christians lower the birth rate! By having to wait until we marry before we can procreate, we are wasting millions of potential lives! Every humans ultimate goal should be procreation and the fulfillment of our race. That's the only way to satisfy our genetic impulse.

Seriously man, now I know you're just fucking with me. No one actually thinks like that. Actually the sad part, is that some people -do- think like that.

Dear Readers: I am aware that some of you are seeing "Yes on Proposition 8" ads on the site today. I have ordered Google to take these ads off the site immediately as I find them hateful and offensive, and urge ALL Californian QC readers to vote AGAINST Proposition 8. I firmly believe in equal rights for all people and do not support or condone the activities of anyone who is in favor of this proposition.
That's from a comic I read. The author made that note.
