Keith Ablow: “Narcissistic” Gay Adoptions WIll Lead To Polygamy

Dr. Keith Ablow—the right-wing moralist masquerading as a psychiatrist—has declared that we’ll see rampant group marriages if  LGBT couples continue to adopt children.

Somebody tell the Sister Wives the good news!

Ablow was talking to Fox Business host Lou Dobbs about President Barack Obama‘s marriage-equality announcement. Now what a shrink is doing talking about marriage on a business show we don’t know, but Keith laid out some very important facts:

“Children in same sex households, unless the donor of sperm or ova—eggs—is known… don’t know their biological parents. Now, we don’t know the psychological impact of that at all and we need the data, we really do.”

Aren’t there millions of adopted kids who don’t know their birth parents? We’re pretty sure they turned out fine.

“This is narcissistic,” Ablow said of LGBT people adopting. “‘I feel like it so I’m going to do it, no matter what the science might show.’ And we need the data.”

Keith, we have the data. There have been several major studies done that make it apparent a parent’s sexuality doesn’t impact how well his or her child turns out. (It’s also doesn’t affect the kid’s orientation.) Just because you’re terrible at your job doesn’t mean the studies haven’t been done.

“How did we decide that kids are just fine to grow up absent their biological parents? Because why? ‘Because we love each other.’ Well, three people can love each other, so polygamy has to be close behind. How can you have same-sex marriage and not believe that three people can fall in love, which they absolutely can?”

You’re right—we read that in the Bible!

It’s surprising Ablow is so down on gay parents. When he defended adulterer Newt Gingrich’s presidential aspirations—saying his three marriages would make him a better president—Ablow claimed a candidate’s sex life predicted nothing about his ability to lead.

But our sex life predicts our ability to change diapers and pick kids up from ballet?

Still, Keith does make one fair point—gays and lesbians are being narcissistic when they adopt children. All parents are narcissistic on some level: They want to see their gifts and/or genes passed on in posterity. And they think they have so much wonderful love to give they simply must bring a child into the world.

If it wasn’t for some degree of narcissism, the human race would’ve died off ages ago.

    You don’t love a child the same way you love a spouse. Unless of course you are a priest.

    Polygamy is restricted to all, both straight or LGBT, so it has little to do with rights being withheld from one segment of unpopular Americans with immutable orientations, while enjoyed by and taken for granted by other Americans. The laws against polygamy apply to all, whereas, with LGBT, we are not even allowed one spouse. This inequality cannot be tolerated. Marriage is a secular, contractual arrangement for which discrimination has no place in civic law.

    Ablow is a steaming-hot piece of stinking shit.

  • Cam

    Do you notice that their main argument against gays is constantly along the lines of “But it could lead to people marrying a toaster!

    So basically they can’t say what it is about gay rights that is bad, just that it could lead to people marrying household appliances.

    They just don’t want to speak their truth which is they are a bigot who hates gays. I’d respect them more at least if they were honest enough to say that instead of this cowardly B.S.

  • MJ

    reading his statements just made head hurt to point where 4 pills aren’t gonna be enough

  • michael

    Another point for fugly men who hate gay guys.

    “This is narcissistic,’ Ablow said of LGBT people adopting.”

    LOL. Narcissistic? As supposed to numerous straight parents who want to produce a child just so they can have a legacy, a splitting image of themselves, an extension of them, and a way by which they can relive their childhoods? Right.

    Of course, not all straight parents are like that. Some would “go forth and multiply” because that is what God supposedly told them to do centuries ago when the world wasn’t so crowded with people, children weren’t getting killed for being born girls and resources were many.

    The brilliance of this man blinds me.

    “’I feel like it so I’m going to do it, no matter what the science might show.’ And we need the data.”

    Again. LOL. You want data? Perhaps you should check the number of kids in orphanages. Perhaps you should also check to see if their facilities are enough to accommodate more kids. Maybe if you’re not so busy playing doctor, you can also check if it is possible that the kids in orphanages are being raised by their own parents.

    Again, doc. Your brilliance. It hurts my eyes.

    “Children in same sex households, unless the donor of sperm or ova—eggs—is known… don’t know their biological parents. Now, we don’t know the psychological impact of that at all and we need the data, we really do.”

    So in the meantime, what are you suggesting, doctor? That we allow the kids to continue living in the orphanages (or even in the streets) where they do not only have any idea who their parents are but are also subject to excessively limited resources?

    Wow. Your brilliance is really blinding me now.

    “How did we decide that kids are just fine to grow up absent their biological parents?”

    Oh, I don’t know. But allow me to hazard a guess: could it be that the kids who don’t know the biological parents that abandoned them were not fit to be called “parents” to begin with?

    “Well, three people can love each other…”

    Don’t get your hopes up, doc. If the third person is you, I HIGHLY doubt it.

    “How can you have same-sex marriage and not believe that three people can fall in love, which they absolutely can?”

    And I’m guessing that in your world–where orphaned kids should either live with the biological parents or be forced to endure meager resources–love is a bad thing, right? Good to know we understand each other.

    I’ll be putting on shades the next time I see you, babe.

    @JasonMacBride: Ok. That REALLY made me laugh. Thank you for that. Now I feel like hugging strangers in the street.

  • Belize

    @Cam: “Do you notice that their main argument against gays is constantly along the lines of “But it could lead to people marrying a toaster!”

    No. What I notice is how many times these people use God to justify stupidity.

  • till the world endst

    I have one name to say about his threesome quote about homosexuals; Woody Allen! he is straight and did that very thing!

  • Belize

    @till the world endst: LOL. And now I feel like starting a fucking parade. Thank you for that.

  • xando

    From your mouth to God’s ears keith. Group marriages for everybody. Paaahtay

  • xando

    Also, the day a goat or a toaster or a pencil become self aware and have consent as is legally defined and can speak a language with words in it fluently, build and buy houses they can’t afford to live in, start wars and finish a crossword puzzle on their own and they wish to marry a human, let them, I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it, in a few million years.

  • Martin

    @xando: Million years? Household appliances already play Jeopardy and win!! Try with a 100 years or maybe 50 :P
    Hmm i dont want to marry a toaster but there might be other likely candidates… LOL

  • codyj

    gee, ahh, I rebuild old ‘antique’ appliances for a living (1910s-1950s) and theres NOTHING HOTTER than a 1948 SUNBEAM TOASTMASTER,lol… )joke aside, that Albow is a typical fundie nutcase,FK.HM)

  • Justin

    Just give it time. Every election cycle tens of thousands of these fuckers die off and get replaced with younger voters, the majority of whom support us. It’s why the Republicans scrambled to add amendments in 2004 and 2006: they knew the tide was turning and amendments to state constitutions are way harder to undo than standard laws. People like him are growing more and more irrelevant and he will one day vanish into the dustbin of history, where garbage like him rightfully belongs.

  • Bill

    A completely new chapter of crazy. They are so terrified that marriage equality is now inevitable, they will be ramping up the craziness in their desperation.

  • Will G

    also: clear nail polish leads to fire hydrant.

    what? it’s just as logical as what he said.

  • xando

    @Martin: The computer that won Jeopardy is not a household appliance. You’re telling me you have a watson hanging out in your living room? Do you live at IBM? Do They know that you live at IBM? Oh My God… are you Watson?

  • Blah, bla..huh?

    I guess straight people who divorce, remarry and raise some other person’s kids are polygamists then? Thanks for the update, freak.

  • Who are you B!tch, New lunch?

    There is always a platform for foolishness and this fool is foolish. Such a horrible picture also

  • PTBoat

    True biblical fundamentalism leads to polygamy.

  • Flick

    So in this guy’s logic, multiple extramarital affairs makes you a better person, but giving a parentless child a home is selfish… Wow.

  • Red Meat

    LOL What about the Mormon running for president? Oh you.

  • Evji108

    I think it’ probably his name, he is lashing out. I bet he was teased mercilessly and called gay because of his name…… “Keith can you give me Ablow…job?”

    Twat a douche

    Masculine & Feminine energy is extremely important in the diabolic development and process of child’s mind. It reminds the child of the influence of both sides of the spectrums that is available to them! This seed that is planted early on in life acts as a reminder for strength, perseverance, determination, creativity, relationship and an equilibrium a same sex couple cannot simply provide. A same sex couple should not argue that they can have the same outcome as the biological parents can. This part is narcissistic and naive of gay people to assume…?

  • dee-dee

    Lex Luthor is a real person?

  • Granster

    @Martin: You have your eye on the vacume cleaner in the closet, don’t you? I called dibbs first.

  • Martin

    @Granster: LOL =)

  • Blah, bla..huh?

    @anonymous: “Masculine & Feminine energy is extremely important in the diabolic development and process of child’s mind”

    Energy? Is that like nurturing love? You don’t believe two people of the same sex can haz, do you? The peepee energy must magnetize the vajayjay energy for the child’s mind to be mindlessly correct in it’s rectification! How else will it lead a bumsteer life as mystically inclined human livestock? This is why Jesus was so reluctant to allow his disciples to marry. Next thing you know, they’re babbling about how God comes from them, yadda yadda, dude blames the chicks, she takes the baby and turns Pagan, yackity smackity. We need better breeders, not the dummies you’ve turned out to be.

    Shame on you,
    <3 Satan.

  • Geri

    What’s wrong with polygamy anyway?
