I'm confused. What difference does it make? Say Angelina Jolie is unable to stay pregnant. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, a heterosexual couple, want to use a surrogate mother. You're telling me if Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were looking specifically to have a boy also, would you be questioning how they would react if they were to have a girl?
Seriously, gay guys are humans too. I doubt Elton John and his partner would throw away a kid because of its sex, even if they preferred a boy.
Also, Aileen, I think you're wrong when you say that gay men probably don't want to have a family. I can't lie to you, I think there are more gay men in my generation who won't want to adopt for a while, but every gay guy I've talked to has discussed having a family. It's just extremely hard to be gay and have kids because of all the current restrictions on adoption.

Thanks for the informative article. Have to say that, for a woman, you seem to have met an amazing number of gay males who have been willing to confide in you.
I was basing my comments on my own generation, and therefore out of ignorance, for which I apologise. When I was your age gay people weren't socially acceptable and so most of them went to considerable lengths to cover it up, like getting married.
I'm not homophobic though, although some of the more obviously gay males give me the shivers, so clearly some of that old prejudice still remains. Also, probably for the very reason stated above, I've known extremely few gay/bisexual men or women, and those not well enough to touch on such personal matters.
