RECENTLY ON TOL:

Our society is flawed in every direction, witness the murders that took place in gun-loving Arizona. What a tragedy. What a commentary on our society. I am not really for SSM, but I'm not really against it either. It comes down to the individual persons, just as in heterosexual relationships. I have seen some very loving, committed relationships between SS, long-term partners. Someone like Todd, who leaves a terminally ill partner, and puts the onus for the decision on his parents isn't a loving, caring, mature person, and his nasty win-lose behavior toward Maggie also showed his true nature.
SSM is a very different thing from being given a child to raise. I repeat, Todd is not the father I'd pick for a vulnerable child. It all comes down to individuals and how they manage to mature in a stressed out society. We've been warring too long, and it takes a terrible toll. Hatefulness must be replaced by acceptance of someone else's different attitudes. Or color. Or religion. Or politics.
