Umm, unless there has been a medical breakthrough that I missed, the children of same sex couples also have a mother and a father. They also have two live adults who care about them in their home. What's not to like?

This is wonderfully true, ideally.
In my own case, though, none of my adopted children knows who their father is. They also don't know their biological mothers. In many other cases I know of, even when adopted children do know the identity of their mothers, they do not know who the father was -- this often being the set-up for the whole adoption. Mitt forgets the unfortunate fact that plenty of children who live with a biological mother also face this situation. Or perhaps one parent is in jail, or raped the other...

Part of being as out of touch as Mitt is that you just don't see these possibilities. They don't exist.

I know, and I wasn't trying to say that the bio father (or mother, or either) would be in their life, just that dear ol' Mitt seemed to think same sex partners parenting was something that dropped in from outer space and bore no relationship to straights parenting.

This fucking smarmy rich prick is not lecturing anyone on psychological development, this is a joke

Listening to Mitt is like watching your dog run into traffic.

More depressing than anything else.

Because as we all know, gay couples couldn't possibly have any siblings, neighbors or friends of the opposite gender, and a child of their household would have to go to the internet to see examples of such other gender....
