As someone that believes in live and let live, I usually don't care if someone is white, black, straight, gay, transwhatever, as long as they mind their own business like the rest of us and get on with life, who really cares as it shouldn't be a factor in politics or even culture. The problem as I see it isn't equal rights, but superior rights demanded by people that aren't willing to accept that some people may not like them and because of their choices, there are consequences. It's bad enough I have to deal with evangelical mormons and Jehovah witnesses, now we have to throw in evangelical atheists, greenies and social justice freaks. Get a fucking life.
Anyway, back to the article. One of the comments shows how twisted some people are and RKG should be a poster-child for the pro-abortion movement, after all, it's something she endorses. Ok, that was a little harsh, but she's mishugah and farkockte. Here it is:
"As a queer person, I see having kids as a flaunting of heterosexual privilege. Or, to put it more bluntly, having kids is a way of showing that one group of people has more rights than others. When I was in my best child-bearing years, I lived in states that made it illegal for two people of the same sex to adopt a child, so even if I had a child biologically, my partner could never become a legal parent, which ultimately put my child in danger (if I were to have died, the child would have gone into foster care and not to the co-parent). That's why I can't feel any sympathy for people who get to have kids. Yes, I have more money and more in retirement than you do, but that's because the choice of whether or not to have kids was not a choice for me like it was for you. You made your choice. Quit whining about it to those of us who never had the choice."
Whining? Whose the one whining and who made their choices the way it did?
