What he said is no less true for infertile heterosexual couples than same sex couples. Same sex couples get married, make lives together and have / raise children.

I know several same sex couples with children. One female couple I know how a child through invitro. Biologically the baby is only related to one mother but they're both on his birth certificate. I also know a heterosexual couple who went this exact same route. My friend's husband had a weird issue with his sperm where the sperm wouldn't do anything but spin around in circles. I don't know what that's called, but at any rate, they went the invitro route. The baby is only biologically related to the mother, but both her and her husband's names are on the birth certificate. I know a male couple who are about to be parents in a couple of months. They hired an egg donor and a surrogate (2 separate women).

And I know two other same sex couples, both women, who have each adopted. I also know several heterosexual couples who have adopted children. So what's the difference between a same sex couple and an infertile heterosexual couple.

And what about elderly couples? If marriage is all about procreation, then I suppose to people who are middle aged or elderly, heterosexual or same sex, should not be allowed to get married. Also heterosexual couples who choose not to have children at all should be banned from marriage.

It seems to be singling out same sex couples simply because they cannot pro-create is discrimination. Either each and every couple who wants to get married should be able to prove that they are both capable and fully intend to have children before they get married, or there is absolutely no grounds in which to ban couples, same sex or heterosexual, from getting married.

Argh, I was typing way too fast and I'm apologize for the bad grammar and typos.

*One female couple, I know, had a child....

*where his sperm

*"I know a male couple who are about to be parents in a couple of months. They hired an egg donor and a surrogate (2 separate women)." Again the baby will only biologically be related to one of the father's but both father's names will be on the birth certificate.

*So what's the difference between a same sex and an infertile heterosexual couple?

*then I suppose two people who are middle aged or elderly...

*It seems to me singling out same sex couples, simply because they cannot procreate, is discrimination.

Female-female sexual activities carry far LESS risks than heterosexual sex. I guess you must be in favor of women being lesbians.

BS.

Infertility in a hetero couple is rare and often mendable. A ss couple is mutually barren ALWAYS. Hardly 'equally true'.

Moreover, a hetero couple provides a mother and a father. A ss couple ALWAYS deprives a child of a mother or father role. Devastatingly NOT equal!

Ah, gotta love those 'rational atheist' oxymorons...

You really don't get the lil' Covina guy's intelligence. He's so fast at conceptualizing that he gets ahead of his own words. And this - you sound old enough to be his grandpa -
is COMPASSION.

Sarge, the co-..um ..he's speaking a 'codex', sir.
way faster than us. I takes a minute but I get
he don't have the same desires as you, but he's ok. I can tell from the 'codex'.
if you don't like highly intelligent people then there's not much chance of finding your compassion.
