She really expects to have a working family out of an abused father and a depressed mother. I think a gay father was the least problem. Would she been better of, if just her father wasn't gay. I guess not.

"The Classical Greeks gave us rational thinking and democracy and we're honoring that legacy with intellectual mold."

EXCELLENT.

Just as with their straight brethren, not all gay parents are bad. But, as Augusten Burroughs' memoir show plainly, some straight parents are horrid.

The sexual orientation of a person has no bearing on parenting skills. You can get anecdotal evidence to prove any proposition but it doesn't make the case for pervasiveness.

It's amazing that we survive as a species inasmuch as the majority of people are not prepared for or interested in good parenting. That's the big problem, not the sexual orientation of the individual.

This is one sick bitch. I don't care one iota that she had a hard life. She can blame her father's homosexuality all she wants, but she isn't just writing a biography condemning daddy, she's joined up with other conservatives to use this personal story to demonize all gay parents. She is most definitely on the same level of the other nutjobs, and the need to empathize with her will have an even more effective impact on her audience. She's a danger, pure and simple (of course I say that in a "we have to fight her with facts" way and not a "we need to shut her up" way).

Hell why didn't she just call the bloody book "Daddy Queerist"?
