Unfortunately, for DSH, this assertion that homosexuals and lesbians
are incapable of having children is not only factually incorrect, but
is an ignorant but widely held misconception (to pardon the pun).
There have been many closetted homosexual men and women over the years
who marry under family and peer pressure to have children, only later
to divorce and take on lives that suited their particular natural
instincts. There are also gays and lesbians who are parents by the
artificial insemination, or whereby semen is given by gay men to
lesbian friends who go on to concieve and have familes. Whether this is
seen as moral or amoral is a decision of emotion. They conceieve, and
that's a fact.

I hope he doesn't come under anything except his own name. That is
enough shame as it is.
