There are 69 comments on the my.firedoglake.com story from Nov 3, 2012, titled The Full Insult of "Children Need a Mother and a Father". In it, my.firedoglake.com reports that:

It says to all people that they should not hope to ever be an effective parent to a healthy kid unless paired up with the “right” co-parent. It says that no amount of compassion, devotion, competence, or love by a single parent or a gay/lesbian couple can be good enough to create healthy family space for a child.

Since heterosexuals are 97% of the population, that is hardly a skewed vision of the world. That IS the world. There is a heck of a lot more to be a man or a woman than the job they do. I have known many women who did a "man's job" yet remained feminine and very much women. I have known men who do a "woman's job" who leave no doubt as to their masculinity. Jobs do not require a blurring of gender. As for children, they need guidance and should be raised, not left to their own devices. I'm not saying things should be forced on kids. I am saying that they should be guided and trained. Kids need boundaries, and they will act out until they find out what those boundaries are.
Wow. Sexist much?? Here's some advice--get over all that sexism. It doesn't help you or anyone else. It gives you a false sense of security, but it cuts off so many opportunities that you can never be successful or truly happy while you allow such ridiculousness to rule your life.

You just made a compelling case for training and guiding children. The continuation of society depends upon it.
You DO realize that children are not puppies, right? Puppies need "training and guidance". Children need exploration, education, and support. BIG difference there.

HATE LOSES??? Naw, mrs Manson or Dyke or whatever you want to call yourself, you have no idea what hate is until you have to face it head on. Hope you never have to.
You haven't been listening.

We have been having to "face it head on" all of our lives.

Now we just do it together. All 12+ Millions of us.

Like waking up the morning after a violent storm, I look around and see all the damage republicans took last night and find myself enjoying the view.
It looks like hate loses again.
Maybe we can bus all you haters to Arizona before we give it back to Mexico.
Ah Hahahahahaha!!!
They lost due to hate and the fact that they do not offer the average working person a damn thing.

They hate regulations which we need to keep water and air clean, they hate consumer rights , protecting nature , shred VA benefits and simply want nothing to do with the average American.

I was glad to see so many 18 to 21 year old younger pro-choice women in Florida turn out to vote against these anti-choice fanatics .

72% of the nation is heterosexuals surprising I thought it was least in the 80's myself but your statistics are wrong. I know many couples gay and Non-gay. My guncles aka gay-uncles they have raises 3 children top of there classes. All are straight 2 girls and one boy. I know hetero couple who two kid are drug addicts and the other kid ran away. My parents are hetero so I am not saying not all are bad. Sadly I've seen gay couple kids more often than not they turned out better. As long you instill good values it really does not mean anything else other than that.
