As part of a substantial march against extending marriage rights to gay people in France the most tweeted quote of the day (from Bruno Gollnisch, a National Front politician) - was that 'Gay people want children as pets'. On a personal level as a gay man who hopes to become a father (given the right circumstance) I find this quote pretty offensive. I'm not sure how this man feels justified questioning my desire to be a father. How do we prove the sincerity of anyone's desire to parent? Is this now the general consensus amongst those who oppose gay people fathering/mothering children?
