"A New York state appeals court has ruled that a lesbian whose partner gave birth to a boy after their Vermont civil union has no parental rights because she never legally adopted the child."

Note bene this issue has nothing whatsoever to do with gay "rights."

That’s way too logical, intelligent and rational an answer for the lesbonazi crowd.

...and two months after the women registered as domestic partners in New York City.

Only 2 months? Does this mean the other woman wasn't the father?

This is the right way. It is the same as if the mother was living with a man who did not father the child. There are no rights being trampled here, in fact, they're protecting the child's rights to a biological mother and father.
Now, if the "partner" wants to adopt the child and the mother agrees, then we have something interesting - what is in the best interest of the child? that's how it should be decided.
