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 couldn't agree more with you on this matter, a child has a right to have parents whatever sexuality their off, being homosexual does, in no way, effect your ability to raise a child.

Ofcoarse it doesn't effect your ability to raise childeren. My friend turned out just as any kid. I just don't get it why a lot of people make this such a big issue. There's nothing wrong with being gay. And if you love your childeren...what's wrong with that? NOTHING!!!!

The biggest argument i hear from the news media and the holy-rollers... is that gay men would molest thier children....
my response to that it... it's more likely to have a straight parent rape or sexually abuse thier child than a gay parent. The gay parent knows he's got society's eyes on him, so he's not even going to beat him child (even when they need it.)
However.. another concern i have heard is that it creates gay people...
that is such crap.
all having gay parents does is creates a socially conscious being that can relate. Period...

I don't know...
There aren't too many drawbacks, but it might effect the child somehow. They'd probably feel insecure and get made fun of at school.

Wowzers, there's seems to be a lot crap flying around this post.
Firstly, you can't say "Everyone is entitled to their own views and opinions" and then turn around to say, "But your view is crap because it's different to mine." Not only is that ridiculous, it makes you out to be a hypocrite. Either you "allow" them an opinion or don't. Let's not pretend you are. It's common sense. So if people are FOR homosexuality or AGAINST, so be it. Jumping down their throats isn't going to change their minds.
Secondly, somebody started of this amazing idea that gay parents are somehow "more loving and caring" than heterosexual parents. My that's interesting! I wonder if this is based on any actual evidence or statistics and if so, did whoever post that idea read it from the Encyclopaedia of Nonsense? Seriously, if you're going to post "fact" then base it on something tangible not disguise opinion, conjecture and assumptions as fact. We all know what happens when you assume right? You make an ASS out of U and ME.
Thirdly, the word "normal" flies around a lot. What is normal for some may not be for others. It's basically what the majority does and thinks that we consider the norm. Based on that (no opinion) injected, heterosexuality is the norm. This is what it is, so please no posts lamenting what I just typed. It's logical. That doesn't mean what is logical is necessarily socially "correct" (for want of a better word) though, let me make that clear.
Now if the original post asks for opinions (and I believe it did), I feel raising children in an unnatural or abnormal environment would have some detrimental psychological effects. In lay-mens terms, the children will suffer for it in terms of being bullied or ostracized. That is down to society though, and doesn't reflect on the parenting. Therefore, if we follow this reasoning, there is nothing logically "wrong" with gay parents. The problem with this issue is that it goes beyong logic and I'm afraid a forum post on an anime website isn't going to resolve these issues.

My two cents.

There is even homophobia at an all-boys school in a city which allows gay marriage. I would know.

btw, how gay parents have their own child? not adoption...



well, if gay parents wants to have a biological child they usually undergo through artificial insemination!




Gay parents are capable of nurturing a child! Sexual orientation should not be a barrier to be a prospective parent!

just because they are gay does not mean they will raise their children gay. even if it were so, we can use a generation of gay people. we have a population problem

a generation of children who know how to dress themselves in fashion. FABOULOUS!

I believe they should if they are fit parents. I don't believe in the whole idea that "because the parents are gay, the children will be gay as well." Of course, if parents encourage their children to be gay, that dwells on a completely different subject matter.

Being bi.. I would have to say; yes, gay parents should be allowed.

A gay couple is capable of taking care of a child just as well as a heterosexual couple.
It just depends on the parents. If they're dedicated and willing to do their best as parents, they will raise a great kid together.

That's all I need to say because many other members posted good responses to this topic.
