The Gays Win a Round

Its going down in Miami with the Gays again, and they won this round on adoption:

A Miami judge has struck a blow against a Florida law banning adoptions of children by gay people. Miami Dade Circuit Judge Cindy Lederman ruled Tuesday there was “no rational basis” for prohibiting gays from adopting children. The ruling will allow 47-year-old Martin Gill to adopt two young brothers he has cared for as foster children since 2004. Florida has one of the strictest bans on gay adoptions in the country. A judge in Key West ruled in September that the ban was unconstitutional, but that ruling has had limited legal impact. Attorneys for the state said they would appeal Lederman’s ruling. The appeal will ultimately decide what happens to the state ban in place since 1977.

Bossipers have discussed civil rights with regard to gay marriage, but how do you all feel about the subject of gay adoption?

    hannibal for once i agree ….my mom went both ways and i got teased as a kid… for a gay couple to adopt me i got two strikes against me…..i don’t think it’s fair to the kids….

  • Chloe

    Gay people should not be allowed to adopt because of the emotional trauma that it will cause a child. That child will be teased constantly for having same sex parents. It is an abomination.

  • Laila

    I dont see anything wrong with this except the picture. Their sexuality shouldnt matter, as long as they are willing to provide financial and emotional care for the child. Kids just want a home, everything else is secondary. There are parents who have children they dont take care of, nor do they want, it makes sense to allow kids to be in a home where they’re wanted.

  • Muff

    LMAO…this is one of the ugliest pics I ever seen…LMAO!

  • Candid Canuck

    I dunno about this…. maybe if they were more attractive….. lol on the real though.. I don’t if the kids are ready for that kind of maturity…. i dunno

  • crazy

    did you read that they are his little brothers. why should anyone else take care of them.

  • rhoniluv

    HEL-LO! uh, people…i think we are all missing the big picture here, and it is not about gays adopting kids…its about outlawing godd%@n MULLETS nationwide!!! i mean wtf??? Mullets, seriously…no kid should be subjected to that. come on.

  • Apo6

    I def think Gays should not be able to adopt. Studies have shown that it children from gay partnerships have more emotional problems, see domestic violence more, and also have problems with gender association. DEF a no no. In atime for more Black men to step up, all we need is studs, and shems trying to raise our Black Men. Black Men Stand UP and DO YOUR DAMN JOB!!!


    LMAO TO THE PIC!!! I don’t know to say about this issue. You have hetero relationships that disfunc. and they shouldn’t be raising kids. I have a son who has friends that have two mommies. Would their relationship rub off on the kids, who’s the say the kid’s going to be gay if the parents are. If they are able to love, nurture and care for the kids, then why not, cause I’m not going to adopt them. I rather for the kids to be stable and loved vs them being corrupt, having feelings of abandonment, and breaking into my damn car at 4 in the morning, then me beating the hell outta em…. I’m just sayin

  • Katherine

    I dont see everyone else volunteering to adopt children, so why not. As long as a child is safe and cared for I dont care. There are wayyyy too many children that are with their biological parents and are subjected to indecent and destructive things on a daily basis. I just want children to find a good home and if a good home is with a gay couple or an interracial couple or whatever..i dont care.

  • cliff

    that picture is hilarious.

  • roe ski love

    My personal opinion is that most gay are some sick mofos and don’t need to adopt a child. However if they can provide a good home to an unwanted child, it may be in the best interest of the child to have some sort of family. But if those freeky fridays start to corrupt the child in any way, make them rot in jail. The same goes for hetrosexual parents.


    Why should it matter if the couple is gay or heterosexual? do u know how many kids out there are being abused and mistreated or the emotional distress they’ll go thru being in the foster care system…if there are loving parents out there who want to give a child a happy, loving home then their sexual orientation should not be in question. As far as being teased, kids are gonna get teased no matter what…kids will find things to tease kids about just because its all about the dozens, making jokes…i did it as a kid, the thing is how u raise ur kids to deal with things like that…if i was a kid and it came down to put me with gay couple or some abusive person guess what i’d take a gay couple anyday!

  • Suzette

    Gays are born, not made, so there’s no reason they shouldn’t be allowed to adopt. A kid is lucky to have two good parents, whatever the gender. Every kid gets teased about something, so suck it up. That’s part of growing up and building character.

    HOWEVER, I draw the line at people with mullets adopting: should be outlawed.



    LMAO@ that title AND that pic….

  • anonymous says

    those 2 people are fugly as hell! gay or not GD they ugly!!!

  • Kimberlee

    @ Oshie’s first post…. YOU KNOW WHY! lol

    @ Athena, omg that’s hysterical.


    This is the guy’s two little brothers for God sakes. Who cares if he’s gay. It’s family. The Florida court system is screwed up if they are actually taking the boys brothers’ sexuality into question as proof he wouldn’t be a good guardian. Give me a f’kn break. IT’S FAMILY.

    Who the hell is some judge to say what’s morally right and wrong… by who’s standards???




    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, WTF IS IN THAT PICTURE. almost pissed my daym self and had a heart attack.
