    Over and over again, people like Lopez continue the meme that MARRIAGE requires mothers, fathers and children when it does not.
    Non parent adults are insulted as if they cannot and do not make any other contributions that matter as if ONLY mating and making babies is the beginning and end of human worth.

    And further, there aren’t any morals, endurance, skills, health or religious requirements to marry OR parent.
    Marriage IS considered a fundamental right accessible to anyone even those convicted of murder with a history of violence.
    The state doesn’t require you be good enough to marry.
    But that marriage is good enough for anyone who wants it.
    And it’s rather obvious to anyone paying attention that one’s gender isn’t a character value, nor any form of guarantee the quality that marriage or parenting will be.

    Evidenced PRECISELY by the amount of DIVORCE and children living in poverty, domestic violence, who have been abandoned, abused and even murdered by the man/woman biological model in their lives.
    To say nothing of just the routine violence against females by males in any given society.
    And how long it’s taken for women to have some legal recourse when it occurs.
    This is hard core proof that being a man and woman is hardly a divinely wrought concept of compatibility.
    Otherwise such suffering BECAUSE of gender wouldn’t exist.

    But then, logic is NOT the strong suit of any of our detractors.
    Let alone some pretty obvious solutions to these problems.

    If children being raised by gay couples were “forced” into that family because they didn’t have a choice then I was just as forced into being raised by my biological father and mother. They were terrible people and I would have liked the choice to have been raised by a gay or lesbian couple.

    But it doesn’t work that way. You can choose your friends but you can’t choose your family.

    By Lopez’s standards, I guess only affluent suburban Asian parents will be able to procreate.

    What a self-hating maROON.

    Good news: he’s left the US. Bad news: he’ll probably be allowed back in.

    Perhaps it’s the fault of putting his words through a translator, but they make no sense. Is it just me, or does he always come off as a legitimate lunatic (not just rabidly anti-gay)?

    By his logic, as best I can fathom it, babies should be left where their biologicals dropped them so they can choose who will parent them. Is that what he’s trying to say?

    I too think he comes across as an extremist Jem. He’s saying if anyone is allowed to raise a child other than that child’s biological parents its the same as putting the child in slavery. He’s absurdly claiming that all children, including those too young to know the difference, are desperate to be raised by their biological parents which is obviously not the case. Some adopted children wish to know who their biological parents were but many want nothing to do with their biological parents as they believe the people who loved and raised them are their only real parents. Lopez would tear those children away from the parents they want and love and force parents who didn’t want the child to raise him or her. That’s extreme.

    As a person who was adopted at the age of 2 and raised to adulthood by adoptive parents, the “biological parents only” argument disgusts me. It completely dismisses the excellent job my adoptive parents did raising me and my sister, who is also adopted, into the adults we are today.

    My question to all these “biological parents only” people is, “Are you suggesting that the best possible parents for a child conceived during incest-rape are the mother and the relative that raped her?”

    That is a powerful refutation Chris. Thanks for giving it to us.
