Woman Raised By Gay Father Is Against Same-Sex Marriage

The Canadian is not the first to express this point of view in recent weeks.

A Canadian woman who was raised by a gay father who had multiple partners is speaking against same-sex marriage.

In a commentary piece for The Daily Signal last week, Dawn Stefanowicz, based out of London, Ontario, said it took her “decades” to formulate her views on same-sex marriage – up until her 30s.

She said her dad, an executive recruiter, gave her a “strong business ethic.” Still, he had multiple partners and died of AIDS in 1991. None of his partners, she writes, are alive today.

I was exposed to a lot of expressed sexuality in the home and subcultures. I experienced uncountable losses. Gender was supposed to be boundless; yet, I did not see my father and his partners valuing, loving and affirming women.

My father’s preference for one gender (male) created an inner sense of inequality for me.

I would love to see gay rights activists from the US get turned away at the Canadian border.Our motto in this country is "we cannot begin to fix ourselves,but we can fix every other country".

Gays are harmful to the environment.

My thinking is that more comments are coming of children, now adults, that were raised in a gay family setting.
I have known people that were married, had children, then one spouse indicates they are gay. The children were devastated; one child refused to live with the gay parent, moving to a grandparent's home.
I know it isn't the politically correct thing to say; If they want to live in a gay family setting, please do not mess up innocent children. Your actions become nightmares for children growing up in such a situation. If it were intended for same sex marriages to have children then either sex would be able to procreate. Seems to me GOD made the call 'in the beginning' he created man and woman.
No need to respond. I, like you, are entitled to my opinion.

1:57 - and then through the bible stated it was not correct!

There are very few things that can continue its species without gender-based reproduction.

Adoption or artificial insemination in same sex couples is a method by which homosexuals could continue their kind......and it should NOT be allowed!

This was one persons unfortunate bad experience but I know from my own experiences that practically the same or worse can happen with mixed gender parents.
Also, think about the time this all took place, so different than today.
Being allowed and able to live your life as you were born instead of being bashed right and left can make someone a better person not to mention a better parent.
BTW if Ronald Reagan would have been more quick to admit there was a major disease out there instead of waiting for more women and heterosexuals to become infected lives in the hundred of thousands could have been saved. So sorry for her loss and hope she is getting help dealing with her issues.
