    why would they do that? I mean how is that normal to have two daddys? The kid is gonna be bullied in school, make fun of, this is not normal I don’t know how the society can accept that,. Seriously I don’t care if you givme thumbs down for this but would you want to have two daddys? what happen to the normal family household?

    i hope they will have an aunty/ female figure somewhere in the picture. i believe in gays having kids but the same way single parents aren’t encouraged to adopt alone, there should be a positive presence of the opposite sex.

    Love the name Gideon ever since seeing the old movie “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Russ Tamblyn (Amber Tamblyn’s father) played Gideon.

    I was brought up in a family of men.
    My mother died before I was born, I was raised by my dad and four older brothers, I know it’s not classed as the same as this l0l, but my dad made sure I had a lot of interaction with my aunts and female cousins. I am sure the twins will have female figures in their lives.
    And know how babies are made! >:D
    As long as you have loving parents, who cares?

    I meant *after* I was born, not before! duh :P

    I’d venture to guess they specified surrogate versus adoption, not surrogate versus seahorse syndrome.

    i dont think its a good idea that gay people should have kids!!!!! poor poor children i feel sorry for the twins… its not natural

    AnAnyMouse Says:

    @mjnhbcfzujkm: Neither is using the internet. Or wearing clothes. Or going tanning. Or taking medican. Or much of anything else that we do these days. If anything, feeling a deep love for another person is much more natural than any of these things. Additionally, why is a man raising a baby with another man any worse than a man raising a baby alone (say, if the mother dies, or was abusive). If nothing else, isn’t having an extra set of hands to love and care for a child better? These little ones have a home with a set of loving parents, which is more than a lot of kids can say.
