Ellen Page is gay

Well, that's interesting.

http://gawker.com/ellen-page-comes-o...ium=socialflow

Actress Ellen Page publicly came out as gay Friday evening, while giving a speech at Time to THRIVE, a national LGBTQ youth conference held in Las Vegas.

"I'm here today because I am gay," Page told the assembled crowd, which responded with a standing ovation and a long chorus of cheers.

"Whoo!" said Page, before continuing:

Quote:

"And because maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility.

I also do it selfishly because I'm tired of hiding and I'm tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered, and my relationships suffered. And I'm standing here today with all of you on the other side of that pain."
Page is most famous for becoming pregnant by her awkward classmate Michael Cera, and for invading the dreams of a stranger alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, neither of which happened in real life, because she is an actress.

After her speech, the Human Rights Campaign, which organized the conference, congratulated Page on the front page of its website for "her brave decision to live openly and authentically."

I guess individuals that feel this way should be pushing for legislation to have all children raised by single parents put up for adoption by traditional families.
Here's the sad thing.

IF a gay couple adopts a kid, they're not taking that kid from some straight couple. There are more than enough poor suffering children that need a home.

People actually think 'the system' is better for kids than the horror of being raised by a gay couple who would love them.

You seem to be ignoring the history of marriage. It's a "tradition" going back, what, a thousand years?

I agree. My wife and I adopted a son because we supposedly can't have children. The amount of children out there needing homes is huge. A child being raised by a gay couple is much better off than a child going through the system.

There are a lot of traditions that were thousands of years old that no longer exist as traditions.

Good for you. That's heart-warming.

And, I tend to agree with the second part.

I don't know what the worst thing a gay couple can do to a young developing mind, but I know 'the system' churned out Charlie Manson.

So, yeah. Until they churn out someone worse, I'm sticking to that position.

So... there's one thing. It still exists though, sadly enough. It's not legal in the civilized world though.

Neither of these criticisms has any merit in terms of undermining "my scenario". There's no requirement for a law to be designed to perfectly achieve an objective. It's enough that it pursues an approximation of that objective. That's why it's OK to use age to determine when people can do such things as entering into a binding contract. It's very likely that there are some 17 year olds who are more mature, intelligent and capable of responsibly entering into a contract than some 22 year olds, but for the sake of administrative simplicity we accept a bright line rule based on age because it achieves an adequate approximation of our goal.

Mega threads that are intended to be a catchall are horrible.

There is no lying in what I said. Here's your second chance to offer your rational arguments for discriminating against homosexuals.

No one should believe your characterizations.
