I’m not saying yes or no. I’m not commenting my personal opinion just yet. (and you’ll probably be surprised by what I say when I do say it, but I’ll save that for later. Why? Cuz I can…)

Anyway, what do you think? Also, a sub-topic question: What do you think of releasing gay children’s books? I will express my opinion on this. Children’s books should not be gay or straight. Homosexual or heterosexual. Sexuality should be left completely out of them. 100%…

Most gay people are more sensitive than most typical parents... and they can be very caring if you get to know one. I think people are just uneasy about the whole idea because they equate homosexuals with pedophiles and the like...

Good point. Any children's books shouldn't have anything to do with sex in them at all. That aside, I'd say that gays and lesbians should be parents. I don't care if it's "wrong" or "right" to the church or anyone else. Denying parents children is wrong, and much "wronger" than being gay if it actually is "wrong" at all. I don't see anything wrong with it at all. Who would?

It doesn't matter whether they have straight parents of not, as long as the child has all the provisions needed physical/emotional/environmental/etc.

Also that would be pretty cool to see, if the child was left completely alone to decide their sexuality, Unfortunately, it can never happen because they are influenced by society the minute they're born.
Gay children's books, could at least get them use to the idea that boy x girl are not the only matches. Though how many people would be against them... I dont even want to think about it.....
Seraph you really like these kinds of topics dont you...

Kind of a moot point since they're already allowed to...

Eh, as long as they pass all the qualifications any other set of prospective parents adopting have to pass it's ok with me. (assuming one isn't a biological parent).

Whatever they want, duh.... If your female parent (current one) wants to be called Daddy, then so be it. If your male parent (current) wants to be called Mommy, then so be it! They should be allowed, as it helps with the knowledge of homosexual equality with heterosexuals, which this world is in HUGE need of.

I actually think sexuality can be in children's books, homosexuality and heterosexuality. It'll teach them to accept them as an equal early on, children' books are an important source to the knowledge of children. Many (not the majority) religious parents deprive their children of intelligence besides what's in the bible, and that's why Children's books are a good source. Of course the books need to be approved as a children's book of course, but not disapproved as a book.

I heard there was a certain book about homosexual penguins, that was banned (I think?), and I found that wrong. There is nothing wrong with it, if they don't talk about anything inappropriate, or show pictures. But that's why it's approved and disapproved. And to the banning, religion should NEVER have a say in a government. Sadly it does in America, Pledge of Allegiance anyone?

I would feel normal... they're not going to have sex in front of you, unlike straight parents JUST because they are gay... it's seriously nothing. I wouldn't care at all...

Right. I agree with the common opinion. Although there are certainly draw backs to gay parenting (I think both sexes have specific attributes that children benefit from. If nothing else the children become comfortable with the presence of both sexes, to a degree. That is if they are good parents.) But I think there are also some ups to it. For example: The children will learn to deal with hardship. (They’re going to be made fun of…) Also it will teach them to be open minded.

Another thing is that if they child is gay then they will have somebody to relate to when they hit puberty and realize their own sexual orientation.

Another thing: Statistics show that heterosexual and homosexual parents give off the same percentage of homosexual and heterosexual children. In other words, having gay or lesbian parents does not at all have an effect on the child’s own sexuality in life unless of course the parents purposefully (which is sick and wrong to me) try to make their children homosexual.

Now, why do I think it’s wrong to do that?

The sad fact, something I hate, is that the world is judgmental rather we like it or not. I’m not gay so I will never know how hard on them it is, but my uncle was beaten half to death with a lead pipe by half a dozen guys because he was gay. (He’s not even the sort who has to shove his sexuality on other people. He kept his live life to himself.) He’s also the kindest guy I know, a man who cherishes children, protects them… Why then would we want to put that extra trouble on our children? Isn’t life hard enough already without the extra struggles of being forcibly dragged into an underdog minority that is often ostracized by society?

But, the statistic being stated: Sure, surroundings often have to do with your active sexual orientation, but ultimately sexual taste is biological. People who are gay can’t help it anymore than people who like hentai, or who like two people of the opposite sex. Pedophiles are the same, but in their case I expect them to sacrifice themselves rather than children. My dying note on this: Anyone who would hurt children sexually, mentally, emotionally, or physically should be chastised!

I think that anyone who has the means to raise a child and the desire to raise a child should have the right to do so. Who you take to bed doesn't dictate the kind of person you are. One of my best friends and his partner are trying to adopt, but they keep getting rejected because of their orientation. All I keep thinking is it is so unfair that my little 17 year old cousin who can barely take care of herself but has two kids is considered to be a "fit parent" but my friends can't because they don't look like the "typical" family.

As for the book thing...what exactly do you mean? Obviously sexual content should be kept out of kids books unless it serves some educational purpose. But honestly I see no harm in depicting alternative families. For example, showing the child protagonist as having two moms or two dads as opposed to the standard mom + dad formula. It will open up the channels of communication...and you are never too young to learn about tolerance.

Seraph...I may not always agree with what you say or believe, but you certainly do come up with some great topics to debate. Thanks for that.

I don't see why not. Raising children from individual to individual differs but it's still for the sake of raising someone. Gay parents are no less capable of taking care of young ones than the typical parents.
