Skip to comments.'Gayby boom': Children of gay couples speak out [barf]
Posted on 06/28/2009 9:38:41 AM PDT by freed0misntfree
CNN -- Jesse Levey is a Republican activist who says he believes in family values, small government and his lesbian mothers' right to marry.
Levey is part of the "gayby boom" generation. The 29-year-old management consultant is the son of a lesbian couple who chose to have a child through artificial insemination. He's their only child.
Critics of same-sex marriage say people such as Levey will grow up shunned and sexually confused. Yet he says he's a "well-adjusted heterosexual" whose upbringing proves that love, not gender, makes a family.
"You can imagine what my parents thought when I was 13 and listening to Rush Limbaugh everyday," Levey says. "But my family had strong family values. I was raised in a loving, caring household that let me be a free thinker."
The modern gay rights movement began 40 years ago June 28 during the Stonewall Riots in New York City. While much of the controversy surrounding gay rights today has centered on same-sex marriage, a battle is brewing over another family issue: Is it bad for children to be raised by gay or lesbian parents.

Are the going to form a new group? COP? Children of Perverts........
Cheney also believes this.
shame these folks are letting personal prejudice cloud empirical judgement

Little Boy Blue Devil. This story should create the alternate 'Matthew Shephard'.
WEll, I’m having a good morning just before the Brazil US Finals but the “cliche” piece was insulting. CNN had to “miraculously” produce a GOP-leaning, straight child out of nowhere to attract both sides for the story. They must’ve hunted high and low to find one who listens to Rush.
Well, Levy is certainly a sample of one. I’d be more interested in seeing a summary of a statistically significant sample from this “Gayby” group. Methinks the larger population are not self proclaimed Cheney Republican conservatives.
I hope they did not choose their sperm donor using any racial criteria, if so I want them charged with a hateful crime.

The exception being held out as the rule. No agenda there, nope.
History tells us that sexual preference can be rather fluid, and is molded by societal norms, or the lack of them. These activist types, and yes I think this guy is just that, want to delude the public into disbelieving what has been known for thousands of years. Remove the taboo, and you get just what the Bible describes of many ancient societies, along with the disease and dysfunction that attend such a breakdown. That’s why a loving God forbids it.
Mankind never learns, it appears.
Tell it to the 5 year old adopted son of the Duke University freak who raped and offered his son to fellow perverts.
Notably, the University that shunned and harassed the innocent lacrosse players has not spoken out on this.
One way to bring down the postmodern GOP is to populate it with liberals like this one, as well as with others like Meghan McCain. Just one of many fronts on which the war on America is being fought.
“....Yet he says he’s a “well-adjusted heterosexual” whose upbringing proves that love, not gender, makes a family.”
Bullshit! He’s Leftist feminized, doesn’t know it, weak of character (NO, being feminized doesn’t constitute “weak of character, what constitutes “weak of character” in this particular application is the lifelong indoctrination to Leftist feminism, which is the course the gay “Parents” set off with in the first place. To promote their own agenda.
These sorts need not be given any credence whatsoever. They are unfortunate and brainwashed freaks.
I believe in imprinting. The roles and emotions — the subtext — are imprinted on the child. The child may eventually disagree with the imprinted material but there is an emotional connection or attachment. It is hard to intellectually fight what is imprinted on you because it becomes part of your emotional makeup or default position. You can be a soul divided because of this tension. I’m no psychologist but I believe first impressions like this are extremely important, and they affect you throughout life for good or bad.
That’s for sure - this definitely screams “exception” and not “rule”.
actually, I’m going to have to disagree with most other posters here.
I am against gay marriage....not because I think its amoral...I don’t care either way, really....but only because most gays are liberal, and they pushed the corrupt, piece of trash Usurper down our throats, and the Usurper is steadfastly against gay marriage, and then they turn around and protest bans on gay marriage, so the hypocrisy is mind boggling. So I protest the hypocrites.
However, in terms of parenting.....I know lots of very level minded and good gay people. And if you’re going to talk about unfit parents...um....you do need to bring into the discussion the MILLIONS of WACKO STRAIGHT parents in this world who have no business whatsoever bringing children into the world. You know the ones....irresponsible, lazy, no jobs, anger issues, drug and alcohol abusers.....
If a gay couple is loving, and responsible, I would say they are a much better choice than a 16 yo unwed mother with no job, on welfare, with an unknown father. with all the orphaned children in the world, what is wrong with a responsible loving gay couple raising them?
A "Republican activist" perverting morality, family values and conservative virtues. I ain't buying this load of garbage.
I’m always a little skeptical when a state run media piece begins by telling us someone is a “Republican.” Most liberal DemocRATS say that they are “Republicans” these days when they are talking to the media. I’m not saying this guy isn’t a Republican. I was just pointing out a trend I’ve been noticing over the past 2 or 3 years.
Going out on a limb rather early in your tenure, I see.
