Why are liberals so quick to criticize natural, normal, heterosexual identity when they are so easily offended by anyone who in turn criticizes them?  When anyone disagrees with liberals, their opponents are immediately branded as being haters, biased and prejudiced, but of course liberals themselves don’t hate, can never be called biased and are unable to experience prejudice.  The current liberal lunacy of gender neutrality is almost too vapid to be believed.  Of course there are differences between the sexes and the reason for these differences are attraction and continuation of the species.  Any line of animal that attracted only the same sex to itself would die out quickly.  The fact that homosexuals can adopt babies doesn’t make them real parents.  The child they love and adopt has come from two members of different sexes, not from two people of the same sex.  To celebrate the fact that homosexuals cannot reproduce is to celebrate nothing, and instead undermines the fundamentals of nature itself and places more stress on society to survive, as heterosexuals are ignored and insulted.” – Conservative Daily News
