Reproduction is not the issue

I would like to respond to Geraldine Susan Rice's letter (Write Back, July 27) on homosexuality and how she believes homosexuals are selfish in that they do nothing for the continuance of the species.

I am a foster carer and was shocked at the stupidity of her comment. Many people choose to continue the species, they then abuse and mistreat these children. Are these people unselfish because they help add to the human race on an already over-populated planet?

Perhaps Ms Rice should judge people on the content of their character and if they are productive members of society, rather than their ability, or willingness, to reproduce.
