I believe that married homosexual couples should be allowed to adopt children. I shudder when I contemplate the current situation, (i.e. that one of the partners can just "move out.")

I want some sort of assurance that the couple really is a "couple." I've known several homosexual people, and frankly, none of those particular people would want to adopt anyone. I suspect that it would take a pair of particularly "complete" people before they would want to/be capable of adopting.

Oh, one more thing. With our current level of gene-splicing technology it won't be five years before we see the first child born of two females. So, the "against nature" argument is absurd. Two men could use a surrogate womb, the gene-splicing technology would be even easier for them.

Anyone remember the name of that old Science Fiction novel where the women had eliminated all the men as being redundant?
