This is a normal post It is, like so much media content these days, entirely and exclusively based a social media post. They don't mention it because they have no idea. Which one is the father? Have they been spliced?
Political correctness prevents the first question being asked. The status quo in medical science makes the answer to the second almost certainly impossible. Did the surrogate even supply the egg?

This is a normal post generally best to steer away from questions about the conception when people tell you they're expecting a baby, I find

This is a normal post Well in most instances it's pretty straightforward and doesn't raise any questions.

This is a normal post why do you feel that they should answer your questions?

This is a normal post I don't. And I sincerely don't care about them as individuals.
However they did post a picture of themselves with an in utero scan on social media. The BBC reproduced this picture as news. As men, I have deduced, neither has a womb. This makes the story unusual, and therefore noteworthy. It seems to me you think it isn't unusual. I think that's where we differ.

This is a normal post you do care though, you're all over it like a rash
Who's the father? Where's the mother? Isnt this weird? Questions, questions

This is a normal post Not true. I care only in that it is highly unusual, yet people disingenuously engage in the Doublethink that it isn't. And almost certainly prohibitively expensive without an egg donor and free surrogacy.
I just Googled the other one. He wrote the screenplay for Milk. So at least one of them has done something worthwhile.

This is a normal post it's not really, in Western societies, in 2018

This is a normal post Hell of a qualification there, 'in Western societies', but we've finally found where we disagree.
I believe that approximately less than 1% of all children are in some way are the offspring of a gay couple. Being in that approximately 1% group qualifies one as being highly unusual. You disagree. The end.

This is a normal post 1% is still ~7,000 babies a year

This is a normal post Why don't just call me a racist cunt and be done with it?
Anyway I didn't say 1%, I said less than 1%, an obscure and obtuse nuance I now realise.

This is a normal post You'll feel different when they are people you know.
Friends of the family are in a gay marriage, neither has a penis but yet they have an 8 year old son together. I've never felt the urge to ask them where the spuff came from, or even who's egg it was. None of my business as far as I am concerned. They're amazing parents and the lad is exceptionally bright, polite and well balanced.

This is a normal post But you didn't read about them in a national newspaper.
The issue here is the woeful quality of the reporting, not the fact that two married guys are starting a family together.

This is a normal post I agree there, the reporting is atrocious, "They have not revealed any more details about the pregnancy, including whether or not a surrogate is involved."
I would have wanted to see the BBC list all the other options they had whilst holding up the ultrasound.

This is a normal post That line wasn't in the original article.
It originally read as if they had somehow reproduced without the aid of a third party.

This is a normal post The first thing I say about the subject at 15:33 is that it's a news story based entirely and exclusively on a social media post.
I realise you're determined to dishonesty misrepresent as a homophobe, please don't pretend to know what I think.

This is a normal post no the first thing you said at 15:24 was 'this isnt normal or natural'

This is a normal post You're reading sarcasm into that remark. Well done Benny.
Less than 1% of parents do this, ergo it is not normal. I think we can take as read there was some kind of medical intervention, IVF or equivalent, ergo not natural. Neither is a criticism or judgment, just an observation. Stop pretending something unusual is normal.

This is a normal post All of that is true.
You've misinterpreted me. I'd still be curious about the biological parentage but wouldn't ask out of politeness though.
However I think if you scream "Look at me! Look at me!" by posting on social media because you're a reality TV star and professional attention seeker, such glaringly obvious questions are perfectly reasonable.
