Wow, I read the first page of this thread and felt so lucky that as a lesbian in Massachusetts I can be legally MARRIED to my true love. I have never received any flack about it, save one person(my mother ). Then I read the 2nd page....

I have a serious problem with the post about how if the whole world were gay the population would die out. First of all most gays WANT children, and secondly, there would still be men and there would still be women, even if the men were "making it" in a cup, babies would still(and have still) been made.

I hope to have a HUGE family with my WIFE. Probably 6-10 kids, no risk of population dying out here...

Non Practicing Midwife, going back to school! Mamma to my 3 loves, living each day to the fullest.

There is no doubt taht married hetereos have it all - and you should savor it kids.

It's been a real eye opener.
I know, it's a BIG rift in my area too. The way the people in the Hospital started treating me when they found out that I wasen't married, it opened my eyes. You're Automaticly Stupid and just trouble.
