A Proposal We Can ALL Support!

This story came to my attention thanks to Kirk and

State Senator Robert Hagan (D-Ohio) says he will introduce legislation to ban Republican couples from adopting children. According to Hagan, "credible research" shows that adopted children raised in GOP households are more at risk for developing "emotional problems, social stigmas, inflated egos, and alarming lack of tolerance for others they deem different than themselves and an air of overconfidence to mask their insecurities." Hagan agrees there is no scientific evidence backing his claims about Republican parents - just as Hagan notes there is none backing State Representative Ron Hood's (R) bill banning gay parents from adopting.

Hood claims children purportedly suffer from emotional "harm" when they are adopted by gay couples. Hagen admins he created his proposal to mock Hood's proposed ban on gay adoption in a way that people would see the "blatantly discriminatory and extremely divisive" nature of the bill. The GOP House leadership does not support Hood's proposal.

You know, if you think about it, Sen. Hagan is right on the money! Allowing Republicans to adopt really does place a child in a potentially dangerous situation. The emotional stunting of growth, the inflated sense of self, and a penchant for theocracy are all bad things. Heaven help those children who turn out gay too! They'll likely fall into the traps of kinky sexual desires, self-hatred, barebacking, and deep shame and depression. It's not a way for a child to grow up and become a productive member of society.

So as the GOP continues it war on gay people by attempting to ban and/or destroy gay families, let's get the REAL source of the problem and ban all GOP adoptions!
