    I'm all for full gay rights but something in me finds that photo very disturbing.

    No matter what sexuality, you should be able to have a child.

    Well, I bet this is gonna divide opinions quite quickly.

    Personally, I think that's a wonderful picture and, as the above poster said, your sexuality shouldn't restrict your right to parenthood.

    I'm curious as to why people consider it disturbing and abnormal.

    Those men will hopefully provide a loving and stable environment for the baby, something that can't be said about every heterosexual parent.

    In the article, the men stated that they're shirtless because skin-to-skin contact is beneficial for newborn babies.

    It states in the article that skin on skin contact is believed to be beneficial for the baby. They aren't naked, merely topless.

    The child is looking for a breast but all it can find is hair. I don't mind the two men raising the child but at the same time, no child should be denied a mother. It's controversial but as long as the child is raised well, I don't see the issue.

    God designed it so that only a woman can give birth with a man. So why should homosexuals be able to have children?

    The world doesn't revolve around religion you know, why can't you just let two people be happy?

    It's great to see so much ignorance in one post.

    Firstly, God designed?
    Great premise. I see you haven't heard of critical reasoning. Perhaps you could premise your argument on something beyond "I'm like a five year old who believes Father Christmas is real".
    Secondly: Women can die from child birth. You don't think that a man would be able to raise the child? Or 2 men?
    Thirdly: The only disadvantage that a child has is from those who say that there is a disadvantage and spread homophobia (and lets be honest, general bigotry).
    Thirdly, you can tell that the poster is not talking about child birth but raising a child.

    It is abnormal and unnatural for two men to procure a child in this manner.

    If you believe that God designed the world and everything in it, then you believe that he designed the human mind and endowed us with the intelligence to permit the development of reproductive science and technology. Indeed, if an omniscient omnipotent God designed reality then everything that happens in the world (including IVF) was his intention all along.

    Well no, it's normal for to men to procure a child in this manner as its the only way they can get a child.

    Many species of animals have forms of adoption and surrogate parenting so adoption isn't really unnatural either.

    Wrong on both accounts I'm afraid.

    I guess it depends what your definition of normal and natural is.

    The awkward moment when you realise that your argument is made out of horse ****e!

    A) Being abnormal isn't inherently wrong.
    B) Being unnatural isn't inherently wrong.

    Nature and being normal are in no way inherently moral issues.

    But I like that you claim nature as your moral compass, tell me, which tree are you typing on?

    Or did Adam and Steve get given laptops by the nice bearded man in your imaginary beliefs? (am I describing father Christmas or God?)
