I wonder how many “fat bitches” there are on here making comments about Rosie O’Donnell’s appearance. Have you met her? How exactly do you know whether or not she’s a bitch? Say what you want about her personality and whether you like it or not, but the woman has made incredible contributions toward a variety of important causes: the LGBTQI community, breast cancer awareness, children’s causes, violence against women, etc. She also almost single handedly revived struggling Broadway shows by giving them a spotlight on her show years ago. Furthermore, with the exception of the youngest girl from her last relationship, ALL of her children were adopted, meaning this is the FOURTH child she’s given a home. How many of you can say that?
She’s also been through a great deal: losing her mother as a young child, sexual abuse from family, not to mention abuse based on her sexuality from idiots like many of the commenters on this post.
Private adoption doesn’t work the same way as other adoptions, and that’s clearly what’s taken place in her case. It may not be fair, but that’s life. If you’re upset by the idea of it, rail against the system rather than bashing someone who opted to utilize it to her advantage, but good luck to you. It won’t be an easy argument to claim that birth mothers shouldn’t have a say in who raises their child. Private adoptions predate other kinds of adoptions.
While the health of both mothers is a legitimate concern, (although really none of our business) their sexuality is not. Statistically speaking, children do BETTER in homes headed by same sex parents. Now, before any self-righteous heterosexual crusaders flip out, no one is claiming that gay people make better parents just because they’re gay. However, the fact is that the children brought into a gay-led family are never unplanned, or unwanted. Same-sex couples either have to go through the expensive, trying process of fertility treatments or costly, difficult adoption procedures. Children come into those families knowing that they were very much planned for and wanted. Not every child with heterosexual parents can say that, period.
In any case, I don’t know of many second generation homosexuals, so it’s mostly straight people siring gay children, not the other way around. If you’re of the misinformed opinion that being gay is wrong or a choice, then you need to take a good look at heterosexuals, because they’re the ones who keep producing gay children. If it’s a “choice,” then they’re the ones raising them to choose it.
Your personal “religious beliefs” are irrelevant here. Scripture from every major religion is very clear to whom judgment should fall, and it’s not on any one of us. The Bible also explicitly states (much more clearly than anything it says regarding homosexuality) that all sins against God are equal. So if you’re busy spreading hate and intolerance instead of love in the “name of God,” I’d suggest you look at the first commandment and then shut up, after realizing that God views you in the same way all other sinners are viewed.
It’s interesting to note that most of the naysayers here are unable to string two coherent sentences together. Ignorance begets ignorance, I guess. Whether or not you like this couple or the fact that they had a baby, there’s no reason to spread hate. If it makes you uncomfortable, click away. It’s really not that hard.
