Regarding Louis Lalonde

I am the son of a loving mother who had a loving same-sex partner. The only thing that is different is that it's different. Every family is different, none perfect.

Wh at do you find criminal? Loving the person you're happy with? People are just trying to be happy! Do you want me to tell you who you can marry? Of course not!! Then don't tell anyone else.

And this is not an "intellectual&q uot; position, it's a do what you want issue. No one is getting hurt, especially children who are wanted.

Fin ally, not all solutions to issues come from logic: You must be empathetic first.

Same sex marriage and adoptions are an absurdity. It ignores human biology completely. A child is the result of a male and female having intercourse. Same sex couple adoptions are not only an absurdity but outright criminal from the point of view of the child itself who is forced into a homosexual context. I know maintaining a pro-homosexual narrative is the student/pseudo-intel lectual thing to do Abby but still, try journalism, instead of personal red-in-the-face rants. Opinions must come out of logic, not fashion and the quest to look cool with cool stands on popular subjects...
