— Not Ready to Love a Gay Child? Then Don’t Have Kids | the Huffington Post Gay Voices (via langste)
"Left-handed and LGBT people make up about the same percentage of the overall population. We would be horrified to meet someone who says, “I love you, and I want to have children with you, but if they are left-handed, I will not love and care about them and will drive them from our lives.” That doesn’t make any sense. Why would you create a family with that person? And it makes just as little sense to hate a gay kid, or marry someone who is going to hate your gay kid. We don’t pick who our children are going to be. When we choose to be parents, we are taking on the responsibility, obligation and honor to love the children we adopt or create. If someone is not prepared to cherish and celebrate a gay child, they have no business being a parent. Our kids didn’t choose to be created, and they didn’t choose us to be their parents. And every child deserves their parent’s unconditional love. Every child."
