Forum to discuss same-sex marriage

Experts from many countries will share their perspectives at a public forum on the Life Partnership Registration Bill in Bangkok on Saturday.


Among the audience will be Deputy Prime Minister and Justice Minister Prajin Juntong, Rights and Liberties Protection Department (RLPD) director-general Pitikan Sithidej said. 

 

She said experts from Canada, the UK, Finland, South Africa, Chile and Australia will discuss the good examples of legal development for same-sex marriage and life partnership overseas. 

 

The forum will start at 9.30am at the Sukosol Hotel. 

 

“Thai experts such as former president of the National Human Rights Commission, Amara Pongsapichwill, share the stage,” Pitikan said. 

 

She added that human rights activists and gender-diversity experts from the United Nations, as well as president of the Rainbow Sky Association of Thailand would also speak. 

 

The legislation of the Life Partnership Bill is considered a progressive step. If enforced, it will prepare the Thai public for the possibility of same-sex marriage in the future, she said. 

 

The bill was drafted in response to calls from gender-diversity groups. 

 

The Justice Ministry started working on the draft in 2013. 

 

The bill is in line with the national human-rights plan for sexual identity, which will be implemented in 2018. 

 

“We should submit the bill to the National Legislative Assembly by November if we expect the bill to be introduced as a law during the term of the current government,” Petikarn said. 

 

A general election is expected to take place early next year.

Same sex marriage seems fair enough if that is your thing...but I agree that allowing them to adopt children so easy is a bit iffy and the child's future possible opinion, mental misgivings or thoughts about it seem to be given short-shift mostly, which doesn't sit too well with me really.

I think if you have a problem with babies being adopted into same sex relationships then you likely haven't truly accepted homosexuality in society, which in its self is ok and understandable as i have known many homophobes that have been forced to conform with public opinion in recent years 
 

Ofcourse propper screening would be needed before any adoption of children

Who cares about any of it.

And I bet most of them that adopt a baby are better parents then the other...

The endgame for the regender/transgender movement.  The complete breakdown of the heterosexual family unit. 

 

Same-sex couples cannot have sustainable family units, unless incest is considered .  It would also sharply increase instances of Oedipus/Electra complex.

 

Additionally, you eliminate the primary benefit of being homosexual in the first place: [guaranteed] no biological kids and the higher income that comes with that.

Good <deleted>ing Grief!

A gay couple next door does not in any way break down a heterosexual family.

Incest? Seriously?

Your kids are misbehaving, maybe take them to the edge of the village and stone them to death.

I was referring specifically to same sex couples adopting children. 

 

Sorry if that wasnt clear in my first response.
