Your parents are gay, dude

Georgie-porgie, pudding-pie, kissed the girls and made them cry.

Every credible study has shown that sexual orientation has no affect on parenting ability. HRC Political Director Winnie Stachelberg

pacifier I’ll go one further. I strongly suspect that gay parents aren’t just as good. They’re better.

Most, especially white heterosexuals, have never had to dwell one minute in consideration of their role in society and the world. The level of introspection they are compelled to undertake is all but nil. When you have never spent much time thinking about who you are, and why, and what it all means, you just can’t be as good a parent as someone who has. It won’t take 20 years of research to back me up that gays are generally encouraged by life to undertake a higher than average degree of self-examination.

On the other hand, most people—gay, black, white, striped, or otherwise—are lousy parents anyway. If you’ve never been particularly good at anything in your life, why would you be any better at something as difficult as raising a child?
