    Congratulations to him. How do gay men father children? Surrogacy? Is it right to pay surrogate moms to father their child? Suppose you are in a relationship with another man and you want children. How would you feel about being a father? Have you thought about being a father?

    If the situation and funds were right, I'd happily father 2 kids, whether they came from my partner's genes or mine.
    To the right kid(s), adoption would be fine as well...

    I'm on vacation this week and it's taught me that in a perfect world, I'd stay home and raise a couple of kids while my man brings home the bacon. Right now, I'm most definitely the pig farmer around here.

    I've never wanted to be a father, but if I ever get rich I wouldn't mind being a daddy. icon_twisted.gif

    They would be some righteously spoiled little rugrats, Tony!

    Genetically, I'm already a father because my identical twin brother has a son. Since my brother and I look alike, my little nephew thinks that I'm his father too (which is so adorable) so in this instance, it makes me think about fatherhood a lot more. If I were to be a father, it would be done through surrogacy.

    I am iffy about surrogacy because I think there is some kind of psychological/emotional trauma that goes on when the surrogate is separated from the child she has been carrying even if its not apparent but I respect the surrogate's right to use her body however she sees fit.

    you'll never have kids, David. Never.
    but on the bright side, not having kids will free up ur time for hobbies like telling others how to raise their kids.

    see? you're not useles afterall.

    Being a father was a kind of biological imperative for me as it is for lots of people. There are gays and straights who don't have it, just as there are gays and straights who do. I just get pissed at those who suggest that because you are gay you can't have kids.

    Rant over! icon_lol.gif

    I am a father, my husband and I adopted a baby boy from birth here in Los Angeles. It was the most happiest day of my life ever to be there in the room and cut the umbilical cord. He is turning 15 months old this month and is so much fun. He just soaks up the world right now, he smiles loads and laughs too. He is walking up a storm and chasing the dog with his big push truck running over our feet.

    It is the best thing ever. I'm so fortunate that we got to take on this life and show him a whole new world as he is showing me one that I kinda forgot.

    He loves, loves the water. Next month we are going to Hawaii and I can't wait to play in the sand and build(kinda build) sand castles and swim...of course with a cocktail for daddy too! icon_cool.gif

    I am a father. Did it the old fashioned way. I don't judge anyone who wants to be a father or the methods they use to achieve that status as long as they realize it is a 20+ year commitment. Some gays can't commit past 20 days much less 20 years. It's NOT something to enter into capriciously. You are dealing with another human being not a doll or status symbol.

    I have two kids. It prompts one to exit lingering adolescence and certainly will knock any narcissism and selfishness out of your system. You have nothing you can call your own for around 15 years.

    Awww, that's so heartwarming. You sound like an awesome dad. He's very fortunate to have you. I want to be in your shoes some day.
