PBS/ "Now"- Gay Adoption
I hate it when I watch shows like this. I tuned in and caught the tail end of "Now" on PBS last night after getting home from the movie.

Florida is the only state in the country with a complete ban on adoptions by gays and lesbians. Mathew Staver, head of Liberty Counsel, an organization that promotes "traditional values", believes that homosexuals, regardless of their parenting skills, should not be allowed to adopt children. "…If you have a boy or a girl that is raised in a same sex household, they are more at risk from an environmental standard or a situation to grow up gay… Their identity of who they are, their esteem, their self worth and their socialization is ultimately going to be affected as well," Staver told Brancaccio.

What a complete load of crap. Oddly enough, I grew up in a "typical American" household. A mother, father, siblings, dog in an upper-middle class upbringing. Guess, what? I still ended up being gay. Even though I had a mother and father who weren't gay. I don't see anyone jumping up to point that out. There are good people and bad people-- good parents and bad parents in all aspects of society. Let's try to not give out labels and blanket statements so readily....

    What I don't appericate is you apparent hostile attack on my blog that is a class assignment. Chill out, I was simply fulfilling a homework assignment, and in case you haven't noticed you are on the web, which means anyone can read your blog, and "analyze" it. I am sorry i didn't tell you that i was linking your blog, no one informed me of "blog etiquette".
