Can you explain the logical slip in the argument below. This point was also raised by Member of Parliament Lim Biow Chuan and ‘Aaron’, the originator of one of the petitions :

Facebook user “Serene Ho” wrote: “I am aghast to see this webpage that seems to support homosexuality on the Health Promotion Board website. Pardon my ignorance but I cannot understand how this webpage can help Singapore to build stable families which consist of a man and a woman as parents for our young children.”

Note : While flawed reasoning makes this argument tenuous, those who adopt the traditional concept of family have other arguments that they can use to support their cause (just don’t use this argument)

 

The actual interactive tool can be found here :
