Judge Orders Lesbian Mom to Marry A Man Or Lose Her Kids

This post, written by Jessica Valenti, originally appeared on Feministing

A judge in Spain has ordered a lesbian mother to give custody of her two daughters to their father because, apparently, homosexuality is harmful and would increase the chance that the girls would become lesbians. Uh huh.
Judge Fernando Ferrin Calamita, who heard the case at a court in the eastern region of Murcia, also said the woman could keep custody of the children if she found another male partner.
According to Ferrin, being raised by homosexual would not allow the children the right to the proper environment to which they were entitled.
"It is understood that (a parent's) drug addiction, child abuse, prostitution, belonging to a satanic sect or heterosexual affair would negatively affect the children and serve as a reason for a change of custody," he said. "Well, it's the same with homosexuality."
