Being a Parent Changes Your Brain, Whether You're Gay or Straight

May 27, 2014 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: EDGE

A new study conducted in Israel shows that gay men raising children they adopted through surrogacy may experience the same changes in their brain activity as both new mothers and fathers.

The first thing a parent ( gay or straight ) should ask him ( or her) self is AM I FIT FOR PARENTHOOD ? No use to go on cluttering the world with the insignificant; and the significant is hard to come by if you, as a parent, have nothing to offer other than the same, tired, damaging values like Pseudo-Christianity, pseudo-education and no financial assets that would guarantee the child, at least, a tolerable life . If you don't have the quality and advantages necessary, ABSTAIN .. and take up some harmless hobby instead..

Wonderful suggestion ! My sister has a very large property which she has filled with homeless animals of all kinds .. Her neighbors ( and even some of our relatives ) think her mad for her gesture of compassion towards our brothers and sisters of the animal kingdom .. Wish everybody suffered from such, much needed, " madness " ..!

Certainly .. The very notion of " age of consent " was thought of for the crininally inclined, that's clear .. Sane persons don't think of sex as " sinful " or "dirty " .. that's for Pseudo-Christians and frustrated old maids like, well .. like you, for instance ..

Do I detect a note of envy in your post ? Well, I don't want to give you food for onanism and must disappoint you .. not even one, sorry ..( apparently my shafts have hit their mark .. and as usual, the stupid show no sense of proportion ).

I have 3 cats now. Two were strays I picked up when I was living upstate New York in 2010. I named them Grayson ( a BIG long-haired gray cat) and Jaime ( a small DSH orange tabby ) Jaime was only about 5 weeks old when I adopted him (story there too). Jaime is a small cat, and he is THE MOST affectionate cat I have ever cared for. Grayson was an adult when I adopted him, but I have no idea how old he is.

Unfortunately, 2 of my cats died in the past 18 months. Samantha died suddenly and unexpectedly for unknown reasons in Novermber 2012.:( She was never sick a day in her life until then.

Calley was a 3-legged male kitten I adopted when he was 5 months old from a nice lady in College Point, Queens. He was already missing his left hind leg when I adopted him at the age of 5 months. Something had ripped it off (x-rays showed it was torn off, and not a birth defect) Calley developed an auto-immune disease of the liver in 2009. He died of liver failure this past January.:(

My BEST cat, Gizzela lived to be 20 years old. I adopted him from an animal shelter on Christmas Eve, 1985. When he got sick in 2005, I brought him to many vets, but after spending $4000, I had to let him go because he was just old. He was outside almost every day of his life, except to sleep with me and my boyfriend at nite, and his best friend he used to hang out with every day for years was the dachshund, Hanzi, next door.

The last cat I adopted, unexpectedly, I adopted here in Arizona in an unplanned fashion. Oddly enough, the previous care takers of him named him "Brooklyn" (which is partly the reason I adopted him as I was BORN IN BROOKLYN !:))(And my vet's dauaghter's name is "Brooklyn" too).

Anyone who doubts the existence of God need only hold a kitten to be convinced how wrong they are.

A few hours ago, I began looking on the web for a dog to adopt. We shall see.........

And if you're undecided about adopting a homeless cat or a homeless dog or other homeless animal, remember: Animals are better than people. They ask for so little, yet give so much in return.

PEACE !:)
