Racism and lesbians

A white lesbian couple is suing a sperm bank for giving them the wrong sperm. According to multiple sources, which stem from court documents, they live in a racist city and have a racist family, and having a black baby is a big hassle! Apparently black people don’t like the baby either, because when they go to the black neighborhoods to get a haircut, they get started at. I guess cutting black people hair is not taught in barber school.
I am getting ahead of my self. Let’s examine the intolerant bigot of a family they have. These are the people who taught her everything about life. She doesn’t want to leave these people and she is very close to them. I can’t help but wonder how much influence they had on her.
Next, I want to think about the place of residence. Her city is racist and only likes white people. How does she come to this conclusion? By the barber shop? Either way, she claims that she needs to move because of all the racists. It seems that the only non racist place in the whole town, was the sperm bank.
To me, the whole thing is about racist lesbians who wanted a white baby, but got a black baby that they can’t give back to the sperm bank. I can believe that the family could be racist, but the whole city I don’t believe. No one has burned a cross in their front yard and they seem to be the only ones complaining. I can understand some frustration with the accuracy of the spam bank, but it makes it sound like the child is unwanted. Imaging growing up and learning that your gay moms wanted a white baby instead. That makes me more than angry. The child is healthy and happy, so don’t ruin that smile by saying that this baby is a problem because it is biracial.

Can Homosexual Couples Teach Straight Couples Something About Marriage?

A recent study in Australia hints that a gay family is just as good as a straight one, if not better in some areas. Conducted by the McCaughey VicHealth Centre for Community Wellbeing at the University of Melbourne, and funded in part by the The Jack Brockhoff Child Health & Wellbeing Program, the study was preformed by Dr. Simon Crouch et al. The study is called ACHESS (Australian Study of Child Health in Same-Sex Families) and is, at present, classified as ongoing. The purpose of the research is to determine if children of same-sex parents are as socially adjusted as children of a traditional family.

 The study admits that there are some inconclusive results and grey areas due to its ongoing status, but the consensus is the same: the children in same sex families have a happy and loving environment. Same-sex families have been saying that they are just as nurturing as a traditional family, and now they may finally have some evidence to back up their claim. The only negative effects noted, were from the obvious stigma stemming from a family with two Moms, or two Dads. Aside from this, the children from these alternative families are, according to the study, sometimes better socially adjusted.

Heterosexual couples have been trying to achieve the same thing, and while many have succeeded, what makes a gay couple equal more successful? The study (the majority of which were lesbians) cites that they share more of the workload around the house. Homosexual couples were more likely to work together on house chores and share the parenting load. Team work at home sets an example of unity in the family structure. Traditional marriage has a clear separation of duties that is often abused, which is a typical point of argument and creates a more stressful environment for children. 

In general, a happy family with loving parents, and parents who love each other, is a safe bet for happy children regardless of the sexual orientation.
