...and the samples used are not really qualitatively good enough to give conclusive evidence.
You can't judge that by reading a paper.

I won't argue research with you, Tony. You don't sound like you have any academic or research background whatsoever. I am not commenting or judging your educational level. Whether you are a butcher or have 15 Master's degrees, you shouldn't be talking about research if you don't have grad school education in research.

You start out talking about samples and statistics but your conclusion is based on your own anecdotal observation.

And what happens in families where the father is left to raise children alone...are they all doomed? Don’t think so.
To point out that not everything is measurable or quantifiable in scientific terms. I used to support same sex parents, yet it was having children of my own that changed my mind.

Re: Laderach (Läderach)... run by anti-gay and anti-abortion religious fundamentalist

The level of homophobia on this thread is scary. If the posts had been about race instead of homosexuality there would have been multiple bans by now.

Seems the mods are completely tolerant of Homophobia. Any of them care to claim otherwise?

This is the problem right here, it’s impossible to have a discussion without someone resorting insults and accusations. It’s the default position of progressive liberals when presented with debate. It’s far more hideous than any perceived homophobia.

If it doesn't involve folk who look like and think like you I imagine it must be quite the ride.

What's your feel about the misogyny levels? It's the level of homophobiaphobia that bothers me.

Have you informed yourself on the LAW in Switzerland regarding homosexual adoption?! The views that I and others expressed is what is currently the law here in Switzerland! This is a SWISS forum is it not!?

There hasn't been any debate. A thinks this, B thinks that. As far as I can tell you don't ever debate. You throw around opinions as though they are fact, don't actualky engage with the salient points (possibly because you don't have a rebuttal other than "but i don't agree") and then accuse others of insulting behaviour because you don't like what us being said.

IMO it is impossible to have a discussion when narrow minded conservatives use terms like progressive liberals as pejoratives and attempt to claim a moral high ground by crying uncle.

There is an inordinate amount of homophobia in this thread, or can't you see it? Baboon is quite right, replace gender with race and this would have been shut down long ago.

Have you informed yourself about the changes coming to the law?

Homophobia will happily also be illegal here in a wee while.

It's a forum largely connected to CH. Lots of the users are not Swiss. Lots do not live in CH and are therefore not bound by its (sometimes, IMO, worryingly out of of touch) laws. But again, you've attempted to move the goal posts. No-one was talking about Swiss legalities. It was, AFAIK, entirely generalised.

That's not true and quite an accusation. I tend to leave posts unless they're directed at a specific person or really beyond the pale. Free speech and all that. In addition, I much prefer to know the people I'm talking with are homophobes, racists or whatever instead of living in denial that such people exist.

In this case, you're making assumptions about my character based on posts other people have made. That's not on.

He won't even admit where he's from, I doubt you'll get that kind of info out of him.

No, but I resent being called a homophobe when we are resident in a country where homophobia is criminalised and same sex adoptions banned. My stance is not homophobic, as I said originally, I prioritise the rights of children over same sex parents.
