I was wondering how you could fully justify masterbation.
And I think the point many of us are making is that it's absurd to have to justify masturbation
. If you sought to justify masturbation, you should seek to justify all forms of self-gratification. One shouldn't have to justify these things, in my opinion. Chocolate pudding, masturbation, playing video games, sports, etc. - Are we to justify all things that make us feel *good*, or provide us enjoyment?
We'd be here for quite some time, my friend. No, I think it's more important we acknowledge it's time to put to rest this silly stigma on self-assisted sex.
Though the family is flawed and needs a lot of work, there are no facsimile's that will replace the biological Mother and Father of any child, no matter what the "selection process" is.
I firmly disagree. I don't believe there is any biological connection, per se; a child could be lovingly raised by a woman who wasn't
the biological mother, and I'd still consider that woman the child's mother. Likewise, I wouldn't
consider a female that left a child the child's mother, even if they were biologically affiliated.
The bond you speak of can be had, regardless of biological affiliation. It is a loving connection, necessitated by the care giving (actions, as noted earlier), and I feel many mothers would agree it starts at infancy. By denying a woman artificial insemination, you are perhaps denying her of forming this bond. There is a reason women choose artificial insemination over adoption, and the reason should be apparent: Some women want to raise the child from infancy and form a deeper connection, a connection only had from holding an infant the mother calls "hers". A husband, I'd hope, would understand this, and love and support his wife, realizing her needs as a woman.
Furthermore, let me add, it is also my belief, and a firm one it is, that no child, no child should be adopted by any facsimile of what political correctness today is recognizing as a family that is slowly replacing the traditional biological family such as single parent, and those that are homosexual
I'm sorry, am I misunderstanding you: Are you stating a homosexual couple cannot provide the same care a hetereosexual couple can?
