"Modern Family: Selfish Adults Produce Children Absent Marriage, Romance, or Commitment"

This is how progressives operate.

The family is an anachronism. And children are just accessories. I feel bad for the kids raised without loving, married biological parents. Because when hipsters decide to have kids in this manner, it's ultimately not with the child's best interests in mind.

At the New York Times, "Seeking to Reproduce Without a Romantic Partnership":

Rachel Hope is 5-foot-9 and likes yoga, dance and martial arts. A real estate developer and freelance writer in Los Angeles, Ms. Hope, 41, is seeking a man who lives near her, is healthy and fit, and “has his financial stuff together,” she said. Parker Williams, the 42-year-old founder of QTheory, a charity auction company also in Los Angeles, would seem like a good candidate. A 6-foot-2 former model who loves animals, Mr. Williams is athletic, easygoing, compassionate and organized.

Neither Ms. Hope nor Mr. Williams is interested in a romantic liaison. But they both want a child, and they’re in serious discussions about having, and raising, one together. Never mind that Mr. Williams is gay and that the two did not know of each other’s existence until last October, when they met on , a Web site for people looking to share parenting arrangements.

Mr. Williams and Ms. Hope are among a new breed of online daters, looking not for love but rather a partner with whom to build a decidedly non-nuclear family. And several social networks...have sprung up over the past few years to help them....

“I’ve met so many women in this same situation, who aren’t married and feel like they missed the boat,” said Dawn Pieke, 43, a sales and marketing manager in Omaha, Neb., whose daughter, Indigo, was born last October. Ms. Pieke met Indigo’s father, Fabian Blue, on a Facebook page for in June 2011, not long after the end of her 10-year relationship. She wanted a baby, but feared doing it alone because, she said,“I didn’t grow up with my dad.” Rather than focusing on a love match, she decided to find someone to share both the financial and emotional stresses of child rearing.

Mr. Blue, for his part, had wanted to be a father since 2006. He had considered adoption, but “figured no one would let a single gay male adopt a child, and I didn’t have the kind of income for a surrogate,” he said. He went on Craigslist and parenting Web sites and had coffee dates with a handful of women, but “just like in any relationship there needed to be a spark and it simply wasn’t there,” he said. With Ms. Pieke, though, he said the electricity was palpable from the start. The two corresponded on Facebook and then Skype, asking each other questions about everything from religion to dating to child-rearing philosophies. By November he decided to move from Melbourne, Australia, where he was living, to Omaha.

“My twin sister was like,‘Are you kidding me?’” Ms. Pieke recalled with a laugh.“I said,‘No. He wants a child. I want a child. We want to meet and see if it’s anything bigger.’”

They first met in person on Thanksgiving 2011.“I felt like this guy was my relative or long-lost brother, but then again he was also a stranger,” Ms. Pieke said. They continued the dialogue: reading each other’s medical charts, undergoing fertility tests. He moved into a separate bedroom in her home, and, she said, four weeks later,“He handed me a semen sample, we hugged, and I went into my bedroom and inseminated myself.”....

It's a bunch of homosexuals servicing selfish and immature women.

Our society is getting pretty f-ked. Grow up people.
It's not all about you and your needs.
