    These days, Li Yin He, the famous Chinese Sociologist, is going to submit the proposal of same-sex marriage to the National People Congress in Beijing. one of her reason that the National People Congress should pass the proposal is that same-sex marriage contribute to China's Family Plan policy which is beneficial to controlling the rapid growth of population in China.

    some gay group on the internet strongly support Miss Li's proposal, coz they though Li is struggling the right for the minority, although she herself is straight. but some other gay people think that Li's proposal just show the discrimination of the straight, coz same-sex marriage should also be entitled to have the same right of child-bearing just like the heteralsexual marriage.

    whether Li's proposal should be supported or against?

    Two men can't have babies themselves, but they can adopt unwanted babies - and there are many.

    Is there going to be a law that says gay married people are forbidden to raise children?

    I'm very confused. Since gay people can not procreate naturally how will they achieve this right. Would legalizing same sex marriage bar gay people from procreating with people of the opposite gender? Is in vitro fertilization allowed? Is having a child out of wed lock allowed? I am all for having equal rights, however gay people cannot naturally have children while in a monogamous, same sex relationship. In a conservative society that limits family size why would gay marriage be the issue.

    I'm for it. The other details - adoption, in vitro, etc - can be worked out later.

    One small step for gays, one giant leap for China. icon_wink.gif
