that is a very good point about fatherhood. Most of them do not come from stable homes.
And it makes me consider that adoption for gays is a bad idea.
Kids need both parents. Some have to do with just one.
Better just one then 2 gay dads.
I just cannot see 2 gay dads instilling in a male child what it entails to be a man.
Wow, that's total idiocy. "Most of them do not come from stable homes" LIE, that has nothing at all to do with sexual orientation. "Adoption for gays is a bad idea" yeah, because group homes and foster parents are MUCH better than loving, qualified parents who happen to be gay. "Kids need both parents" and you are trying to DENY them two parents by banning gay couples from adopting. "Better just one than two gay dads" you're just stupid as a brick. That is NOT better, in any way shape manner or form.
"I just cannot see 2 gay dads instilling in a male child what it entails to be a man." Because you are ignorant as a snowflake. There is a lot that goes into being a father, a good father, and NONE of it requires being romantically and physically attracted naturally to people of the opposite sex. None. You simply have no clue what you're talking about.

post a RECENT link where someone got fired just for being gay or someone thrown out of an apartment complex just for being gay.
Can't be some other reason with the person just being gay also.
Has to be only for being gay no other reason.
I want see that link.
I don't need a "link" jackass, I watched it happen with my own two eyes, a woman who'd worked for a plant nursery for years, an outstanding employee. Her son was hurt at school, and while calling to notify the mother, she mentioned that the other parent contact had been notified, and said a woman's name. The first went to the school to check on her son, and when she got back to work her stuff was in a box with a pink slip. Happens all the time, and is perfectly legal.
This is just like racism--the best friend a racist can have is the lowlifes who pretend it doesn't even exist.

i asked them for a link proving any gay got fired from a job or thrown out of an apartment only for being gay. I never got the links either.

what actually happens is that the gays who get booted out of some place have a history of causing trouble.
Rather then admit they were booted out for legit reasons they jump on its because i'm gay crap.
Where is the proof.
Come on gays this should be an easy for you.
Just post a RECENT link where some gay got booted out of an apartment OR fired from a job ONLY for no other reason then the fact they were gay. The link must prove it was because they were gay. Again must prove it. Not some gay just saying it. Real proof.

Wow. Idiot much? It's the LACK of a law protecting sexual orientation as a protected class. There are still 29 states that do not have discrimination laws protecting gay people in housing or the workplace. Should an employer choose to terminate an employee solely because he discovers that employee is gay, he is free to do so.

Any other stupid questions?

Well, I can't give you a link at the moment but I have seen it happen, personally. I watched a Loan Manager in the Credit Union in CA that I worked for, harass a gay employee and manufacture issues against him until he was fired. He was a good loan officer, and a nice guy.

His crime? He had a small collage of pictures of his family on his desk.

And, remember, this was in CA, near Los Angeles - hardly a hotbed of discrimination.

And, the other side of this coin is that I know dozens of gay folks who remain completely closeted at work, for fear of reprisal. Right now. Today. I now live in PA, and it's very very common, especially among teachers and health care workers.

Would YOU want to hide your family in order to keep your job? That's a tough choice to have to make.

More completely fabricated nonsense. It must be so frustrating that there isn't a shred of information anywhere that supports anything you say.

A link was already provided and the case is still pending. The only proof required to support the statement that gays can be fired in 29 states simply for being gay is the absence of sexual orientation from the state discrimination laws. The fact that you want some type of "further support" simply demonstrates how stupid you are.

Where is the link showing any gay RECENTLY was fired from a job or thrown out of their housing only because they were gay and for no other reason.

don't dodge by posting about government regulations
just post the link

i've had several career changes in my life. Not all of them fair or to my advantage.
But i didn't whine about it. I didn't demand money i didn't earn or a job back where it wasn't working out.
I just shook it off and went elsewhere.

Gays are whinny by nature.
Wah Wah nobody likes me where i work because i'm gay
Wah Wah nobody want to live next to me
Wah Wah the church doesn't want me to be married
Wah Wah Wah

get over it gays. We don't really care. We face hard times too and we move on.

GAYS HERE'S A REAL CLUE FOR YOU
you don't glow in dark
there is no sign on your back saying your gay
You put yourself out there as Gay
