Should Married Same-Sex couples be able to have children? Me and my best friends all have different view points on that-



My friend thinks that they shoulden't. The child would be teased for the rest of their lives because of their parents. She figures that gay couples can still get married, but children are out of the question because they would get mentally scarred.

I think they should. I figure it would be better to grow up with loving parents rather then alone in an orhanage. Plus, if it wasn't so uncommon for homosexual couples to raise children, maybe the new generation would understand it's okay and they wouldn't be ridiculed.

Anyhow, I want to hear your opinion on the subject!

I don't see why not. As for your friend's argument, I don't think that's really valid, especially since most people don't talk about their parents anyway.

When they get older, people will understand anyway. It's not like there's anything wrong about being adopted by a gay couple, right? Just because people are gay doesn't mean anything.

Then again, I live in Canada and we're generally more socially acceptable to this kinda of thing than the US. Probably because Christianity doesn't have such a strong hold as in the states.

But yeah~ I'd bet that some gay couples can't adopt because there's a law against it. If they're allowed to be married at all. I personally don't think it's too uncommon, especially since there are lots of children's books written with that sort of subject in mind.

Yes, I do think they should be able to adopt, among my accomplices, (not my friends) the major argument was that children raised by homosexual parents will always grow up to be homosexual, now, we KNOW that heterosexual parents ALWAYS produce hetrosexual children. :rolleyes:


and also, in Europe and Canada, adoption for homosexual couples has been around for quite some time and they're having success with it.

Liberalize!

I agree with you.

One should be allowed to have children if they are able at parenting.

If you look at the children in the states who have already been raised by gay parents (through a variety of methods, regular adoption still not one of them), the children are often very happy, accepting kids, and obviously not always gay.

I have to laugh at the argument that they'll be made fun of, though, because it's basically saying "fags can't have kids 'cause if they do, we're gonna discriminate against them." Rolling eyes However, those arguments are always coming from much older people who are using their school experience as reference, and times have changed in that regard. There's tons of openly gay high school students. Clubs for it. People who pretend to be gay for status. . . . . If someone themselves is gay, sure they'll be talked about, but no worse than kids who are fat or short or have stupid glasses. Same goes for having gay parents. It wouldn't be that big of a deal anymore, except among the older conservatives.

If a kid can be successfully raised by a single parent, they clearly don't need both genders around.

With so many kids who are in the system and so many gay couples that would love to adopt, it's a shame people are so stupid.

Yes, on the grounds that I think that gay parents can be better than some straight parents.

It's too bad you all don't watch Six feet Under, there was a subplot on how a gay couple succesfully managed to adopt some very troubled kids.

I think homosexual couples should be allowed to adopt. They don't seem to worry about children that are adopted or go through foster care and are molested and beaten, because, [sarcasm] of course, that never happens and our adoption system is perfect. Oh yeah, homosexuals would totally ruin it.[/sarcasm]

I'm still pretty pissed off at Michigan's ban of gay marriage. But, you know, when people get over that, maybe they'll actually let homosexual be equal and adopt kids. Kinda how we had to wait for African Americans to be considered some what equal so they could atleast vote.

I am all for letting gays marry and adopt kids! It makes a lot of scence becuase simply a Guy/Girl couple can adopt, so why can't gays. It a free cuntry and everyone is soposed to have equal rights; but hey I'm moving to Canada when I get older for just that reason...

Exactly. Humans are stupid animals. "What? Let women vote? But they're...women!" "Black people don't need rights. Sure, we gave women theirs, but that's different, these are black people." And now it's the exact same thing.

Someday we're gonna run out of groups to discriminate against. Sad And that'll be sad.

I think that they should be able to. All childrens need loving and caring parents to support their life and help them out of problems. And these couples are also humans with same rights (?)
((that ? cause idk that from America...))

Personally I don't see why it isn't legal already. It's legal in England.
I suppose it's just because people are more closed minded nowerdays . But personally I think that they should , its's not realy fair to say that they can't adopt a child when they can't have one themselves anyway . I don't really see how people can have so much hatred for homosexuals . But yes I think that they should be able to adopt and do things like other people and not be treated like dirt.

Didn't you hear? Tatu are fake lesbians. They have boyfriends. (That's a publicity stunt gone wrong Rolling eyes )

Here in Australia, it's swaying between legal and illegal. They're too busy making it legal for Police Officers to shoot to kill <_<

I hope it's legal. They should have the same rights as everyone else.

After all, I heard they only have problems with it cause of the Bible Rolling eyes

And they don't understand.

(Sorry if you're an over-protective Christian reading this. But is that right?)

I'm Christian but I do disagree with many parts of the Bible . I just think it's too ... close minded and stuck in the old ways .

Yes, excatly. The old ways.

The times are changing, and people and therefore religions and politics should change with them.

Otherwise, we'll never improve anything.
