    I've always wanted to be a father at some point....what about you? Why or why not? Most gays don't seem to want kids, but I'm assuming it's cause of all the red tape involved with gay parenting. If all that trouble went away would it change your mind?

    Is this a boring topic?icon_biggrin.gif

    It's not boring but it's been done. Some people just have their reasoning.

    I've always wanted a family. Most gay men I meet who want kids want a girl. I, however, want a boy.

    I don't get it. How would gay men have children? Unless its a surrogate mother I do not think you can. We do not have the technology.. yet lol.

    What do you mean you don't get it? It's not a hard concept to grasp... yes surrogate or adoption, hence why I added the part about there being alot of red tape for gay parents.

    At least it's not a repeated topic that usually erupts into a flame war, not right at the beginning, anyway. Around here a thread about what brand of dental floss you use could turn into flame war.

    Well It definitely hasn't been around in the last 2 months since I joined. Unless I just missed it..but I'm on here pretty often. New people join everyday and I think it's worth it to bring it back up because it's important to me and I'm sure some others, not everyone, but then they don't have to respond.

    You're right though, it's like some people use realjock for the sole purpose of roasting chickens over an open fire.

    No I just have no interest in ever having children. It's like if someone asked me if I wanted those pants in that store over there. I don't. Nothing wrong with the pants, I just, don't want them.

    Lol equating children to pants. Funny.

    Yes I also meant to include "lack of interest" as a prevalent reason because it certainly is.

    The idea of family and children brings me so much joy and fullfilment that life would not be complete without them.

    Definitely.

    I want three of them, so I can have my self-righteous first born, the spoiled youngest child, and the dramatic middle child. I like family drama. icon_razz.gif

    When I was younger I really wanted to have a big family. The older I got, and the more I realised my sexuality, I lost that desire to have kids. I know I could if I wanted to, but I've developed into such a selfish person that I don't think I'd be a good father. And by selfish, I mean I like sleeping in, going out whenever I want, buying nice things for myself, working late hours because I like my job, going to the gym and playing sport, and so forth. I think at 33 I'm too set in my lifestyle to change that, so I think kids are off the cards for me.

    Looking for responses like THIS people!

    You have my current mindset, which is why I wouldn't want kids anytime soon. But when I think of the idea of holding my child in my arms, knowing that it is my duty to protect and love him for the rest of my life, it brings me the kind of happiness that time and money cannot fulfill.

    I really wanna have kids someday. I want a boy and a girl. Maybe 2 boys and a girl. Everyone tells me I would be a good father because I am "fatherly".

    Earliest memories that I remember is that I have never had an inclination to have kids, not sure why...just is not in my make-up I guess. I do enjoy being an Uncle though, when I am able to see my nephews. I love being with them reading with them, playing, and answering their questions. But, then when they misbehave I am glad when the parents are their, not my role to be the disciplinarian nor I think I would be a good father. Additionally, like other have said I enjoy my life, the freedom I have, etc. I rather spend it with another handsome man, taking care of each other.
