Hey Roaming! First of all, I love your videos and I think it's awesome that you have your own site now! But I've had something on my mind for a while that I just haven't been able to brush off. And this is more of a comment than a question, but I'm posting it anyways. A few weeks ago I watched your video about how you think feminism is destroying traditional family values, but the video kinda rubbed me the wrong way. (I'm not a crazy sjw or anything like that, but I tend to lean left, just for tranparency.) To me it seemed like you were putting a lot of judgement on people that are choosing non-traditional relationships and families. I completely respect your choice to want to get married and have biological children, but you made it seem like that was the only "right" way to do things. I understand that a majority of marriages happen between straight couples, but I don't think it's right to completely exclude non-straight couples from the dicussion. With most non-straight couples and sometimes even with straight couples, adoption is the better/only option. In your video I felt like you put a lot of emphasis on biological children, even though that's obviously not the only option. In fact, I think more people should consider adoption because America's foster care system is a disaster. And I heard all your points on why marriage is better than just being together, but it still wasn't enough to convince me. Personally, I don't believe marriage is a relevant concept in our modern society, but I can agree to disagree with you. Overall, I just felt like the video was trying to make me believe that a traditional marriage with a traditional family was right. And I think that the choice is entirely up to the individual, and that we should respect the choices that other people make; not try to convince them to change their minds on this subject. It's very possible that I misinterpreted your tone or message, but I can't quite tell. Anyways, I'd like to hear your response if you get a chance.
My video was about getting married and having children. As you mentioned, gay couples are perfectly capable of both with surrogacy and adoption, and my video at no point distinguished between adopted or biological children.
Long story short, marriage and children are what's best for society, this doesn't exclude gay people. And, statistically, cohabitation relationships are more likely to end in separation, abuse, unhappiness or infidelity, so while you can advocate for them, they're definitely not a replacement or equivalent to marriage.
I understand you lean left, but of curiosity, have you studied the other side of the gay relationship argument? To borrow a tactic from Dr. Peter Kreeft, would you mind articulating the what you think are the best conservative arguments against non-straight relationships? Please don't take this as hostile. I just want to hear exactly what you disagree with so I can understand your position better.
