Looky here

According to the Infallible Magisterium of the New York Times, it is completely normal for adults to want to have genetic ties with the children they raise, but if you dare say that it is also completely normal for children to desire a biological connection with their parents, you’re immediately branded as a vile bigot, unfit for civilized society. How this is NOT a glaring and blatant example of hypocrisy and a rank double standard, I really have no clue whatsoever.

But, then, again I am a benighted bigot, who just cannot accept Public Reason's value of equality, and Public Reason’s value of equality dictates that same-sex and opposite-sex couples are equal in every way that matters. Therefore, a child's desire to have a biological connection with his parents cannot matter because if it did, that would mean that opposite-sex couples are in principle superior to same-sex couples. But that's just vile, inhuman heterosexist bigotry. 

Therefore, to maintain Public Reason's value of equality, one must deny any significance to a child's desire for a biological connection with his parents while at the same time asserting that it is normal for same-sex couples to desire a biological connection with the children they raise. After all, opposite-sex couples desire and normally have genetic ties with their children.  Therefore, equality demands that it is normal for same-sex couples to desire and have a biological connection with the children they raise as well.  That's the logic of equality, which apparently trumps rudimentary human biology. 

How this is not a blatant example of special pleading or even post hoc propter hoc reasoning, I have no clue at all. But, again, I am a benighted, hateful bigot, impervious to Public Reason and, therefore, should be cast out into the Outer Darkness.
