IT JUST ISN'T FAIR
Using artificial insemination to get pregnant, lesbians are four times more likely to have children than gay men.

So let me get this straight, no matter how enthusiatically gay men get inseminated they still have only a quarter the chance that a lesbian has of ending up pregnant.
I don't why - but that 25% figure just seems way too high to me. Call it a hunch, call it a guess, call it unreasoned prejudice - it just seems high to me.
That's the way the nookie stumbles.
Was the article written by that German couple who didn't know they had to have sex to conceive?
What a gyp- I want the baby bonus to blow on scratchies and smokes; to think I've been doing all those exercises to strengthen my pelvic floor for naught.
That, my friends, is what we call a Wandering Clause. What qualifications do you need to work for Reuters, again?
Russell - I think it's too high as well, but for another reason. Currently I'm sojourning in fertility clinic waiting rooms oh, every week or so, and I have yet to see a gay male couple there - quite a few lesbians, yes, but no men. So my guess is that they're just not requesting the procedure, which accounts for their low childbearing rate ;).
Yeah, I'm sure all those gay blokes out there would just jump at the opportunity to get morning sickness, labour pains, stretch marks, etc...
Well, that's clear enough: without IVF, women would , at most, have a mere 2 times the chance of any man getting pregnant,possibly even only the same chance or, worse, even less.
Women 1:4 cance
Men 100 conception rate.
Great, that's it, the greatest secret in human history betrayed: right, who's the louse. Well, nothing will induce me to produce a child, not even nanny state bribes or coercion, never, never, never! I defy all femmo-nazis, Bob Brown and his bum mate Peter Garrett, Spring St Spivs, John Kerry that little Ho Chi Minh bum boy.
Well, Sonetka, you didn't see my pal Brad and I then. Honey, I've been having the shots,and we've been doing the pre-natal classes together, for months now. Honestly,I'm so frustrated! I didn't attempt to hide my feelings from that cute Dr Goldberg down there at the clinic. You probably saw me when I was throwing a tanty. Well can you blame me? I mean all those hairy lezzos sitting around in their leather chaps and looking bigger and more butch than Shane Webcke, getting pregnant and here's petite little me, still childless. I could scream!
Watch for a gay class-action suit against the makers of turkey basters.
Four times as likely as zero is zero.
Lesbians that want children can go and get fucked
Judith: Here! I've got an idea. Suppose you agree that he can't actually have babies, not having a womb, which is nobody's fault, not even the Romans', but that he can have the *right* to have babies.
Francis: Good idea, Judith. We shall fight the oppressors for your right to have babies, brother. Sister, sorry.
Reg: What's the *point*?
Reg: What's the point of fighting for his right to have babies, when he can't have babies?
Francis: It is symbolic of our struggle against oppression.
Reg: It's symbolic of his struggle against reality.
I was wondering how long it would take for "Life of Brian" to show up..
I love it when I start the day off with a good guffaw. Thanks, guys!
Nah, I think yall are reading it wrong:
"Using artificial insemination to get pregnant, lesbians are four times more likely to have children than [to have] gay men."
Now this is reasonable. What would you expect to see come out at the delivery room, a child or a grown-up gay man? In fact, I think it's also very unlikely, even though she is a dike, for a woman to have a delivery of a full-grown Subaru-driving, Indigo-girls-listening, lesbian. Not bloody likely, as they say down there - probably less than 25%.
Reminds me of a couple of old jokes:
1. Through the wonders of modern medical science, two homosexual men had a baby. They were standing at the window to the hospital nursery, kissing and waving at their son, lying among all the other newborns. "See our baby? He's such a special baby!" "See him smile? He is such a special baby!" One of the other new fathers looked, and indeed, he saw one baby smiling broadly, in the midst of all the others crying or sleeping. "See our special baby? He is SO special!" The proud fathers left. The man asked a passing nurse what the deal was with the "special" kid, why he was constantly wearing such a big grin. "Well, we're not sure", replied the nurse, "but he does fine as long as we don't pull the pacifier out of his a**."
2. Hear about the two gays having a kid? He was a shi**y little bastard!
Did you hear the one about the gay guy who voted republican? He never did again.
Did you hear the one about the blogtroll calling itself Miranda Divide?
That's it, really.
God! I have a major lung infection of some sort, and all this laughing has injured me.
