When I heard him talking during the press conference it sounded like he was talking about adopting an animal. 'David wanted to adopt, I said no because I'm 62/work all over the place' so what's changed, he's still 62!!

So, if you have enough money you can 'buy' a baby from a poor country, I'm sure this has all been said on here with Madonna, but honestly...

I don't know whether I'll be shot down in flames for daring to put this down in writing, but I wondered what they would call themselves to the baby? Daddy and Daddy?

Thst links not working!

I have absolutely no idea what you are on about!!

oxymoronic what does any male gay couple have their children call them? Plenty of them adopt children.

I do think adopting him to replace the dead piano player is a bit odd. And that Elton is too old to adopt.

I've got no idea, it was a genuine question, unless you're reading someething into it that isn't there? smile

Tee2072 Sun 13-Sep-09 13:54:28

It was a genuine question back! I do think a lot of them use, say Daddy and Pop. Or Poppy and Dad. Or something similar!

That child will have fantastic birthday parties.

Oxymoronic- "a genuine question"? Then why wonder if you will be shot down in flames? hmm

What does it matter what the kid will call them if they can give him a happy home.

The age issue and replacing a dead keyboardist is another matter however

belgo grin

LynetteScavo Sun 13-Sep-09 13:59:48

OK, just ignor me, I'll figure it out eventually!

Oxymoronic Sun 13-Sep-09 14:02:27

Darkmere perhaps I thought, totally unreasonalbly, that I wouldn't be able to ask a question like that without someone thinking I was implying something?

dizzymare Sun 13-Sep-09 14:03:29

Good luck to them I say. I honestly think they would make brilliant parentssmile

I must be getting soft in my old age but part of me thinks better to have loving parents than be stuck in an orphanage tbh

Darkmere Sun 13-Sep-09 14:10:46

Oxymoronic- I've heard that question a million times from people who are against same sex couples having children. Normally followed by its not that I have got anything against gay people...

So forgive me if I was a bit hmm about your question.

Lynette - the article is about Elton John changing his mind about wanting to adopt a child from Russia.

He cites the death of his keyboard player as part of the reason for changing his mind.

Oxymoronic Sun 13-Sep-09 14:16:41

I don't think projecting what other people think onto what I said should make it so that I can't ask the question. Just the fact that you've taken what I said as a criticism of same sex adoption has proved that I was right to presume I would be shot down in flames for daring to put it in writing smile
