Oh man! This episode of 30 Days entitled "Same Sex Parenting" just absolutely enrages me. The woman who is a proponent of man and woman only marriage and adoption is so inflexible and close minded that I have no idea why she would even sign up for such a experiment in social difference. I thought that maybe when she saw how foster children grow up and the important of loving families rather than only married couples, she would perhaps open up her perspective more but somehow, it did nothing.
I think that same sex marriages/couples should be able to adopt as much as they want. They have to seriously struggle and apply to get children, participate in background checks, financial checks and references yet we have people everyday that get knocked up and have no way of supporting or caring for a child. I am hoping that this is one of those things that gets easier and more accessible with time for gay and lesbian couples just as rights have slowly come to those of different ethnicity and backgrounds.
