As I've always said, we should never deny someone the rights to be miserable in marriage (or be made miserable by family members because they aren't married) just because they're gay. Everyone has equal rights to misery, self-inflicted or familial.

Okay... This made both me and my boyfriend reading it together (He was looking over my shoulder the scamp) cringe and chuckle. Wonderful comic you made there.

It's too bad my family doesn't talk about any of that stuff... other than the constant conversations about divorce... >.>

Other than that, I'm sure, at least, one of my cousins would want to related to this situation...

Isn't the whole wanting of grandchildren a natural instinct of needing one's genetic material past down to a future generation? In fact, I'm pretty sure the baser instincts of heterosexuals is to mate with the opposite sex so that they can do just that. So there is a logical fallacy in the grandmother in the comic wanting to be 'like other grandmothers' by wanting her grandchild to adopt a non-genetic descendant.


Captcha: Cloud nine.
An appropriate choice considering that is where most homosexual couples are at right now with the Supreme Court decision.
Ah armchair evopsych, we meet again. No not really, a lot of them just like kids and being a grandparent means you get to do the fun bits of parenting without most of the negatives.

Meh, not all gay men or women are super-attractive. I've lived around a large gay population, they're just as diverse in attractiveness as straight folks. Einstein knew his shit when he said its all relative. It applies to pretty much everything in the universe.

Thats not how logical fallacies work. In fact if you want to argue informal logical fallacies what youve done here would often be called the "appeal to nature" fallacy. There is no logical connection between natural instinct and higher function decision making, and no reason to claim that it is illogical to behave counter to an instinctive reaction. Instincts are not a logical construct, they have no logical value in or of themself - its just brain chemistry, with no logic involved to be contradicted.

That is indeed the great tragedy of being a parent. Parenting 24 hours a day leaves one too tired to gain the maximal amount of joy from interacting with a child. It's infinitely more fun to be ramped up to 11, play with the child to (your) exhaustion, and then be able to give the child back.

And, as an added bonus, the child thinks you're the greatest thing since sliced break, because you are always "on".

Sadly, parenting in 2 hour chunks with 12 hours recovery is not an option most parents have :-(.
