Gay couples will not only provide good housing and nurturing for orphaned kids, but will adopt and supply care for millions of kids worldwide. I can tell you without a doubt that this will stimulate the economy, lessen our funding for homeless children and orphaned child programs, and will provide families who cannot reproduce the much-needed and sought-after ability to adopt. I can tell you that the idea of Gay couples producing gay kids is a myth, and a very mean one. I was raised by straight parents. If the argument were true, there would be no gay people in the first place.
I would love to adopt when I am ready. I love kids, and I know that I'd be a fantastic father if given the chance. I would never steer my kids in the wrong the direction like what these guys are insinuating. If they happen to be straight, I have experience in that area and I can help. If they turn out gay, whatevs. It's all cool cause they're my kid, and I'd love them to death.
There will always be parents and people who are unfit to raise kids. To use that as an argument is both devious and ignorant.
I don't see the issue at all.
Straight parents have gay kids, so who is to say that gay parents will make gay kids? It's retarded, and anyone that believes that should get the Clap.
But that raises the question of whether we should also disallow every single couple outside of the white race from raising kids, because I know a hell of alot of indian, pakistani, arabian, black, hispanic, polynesian, cross-eyed, ginger, different-accented, and asian kids who recieved just as much flak as I did for being gay. We all turned out just fine.
But I DO know kids with 2 dads. They are happy. Go watch the Life documentaries on this stuff. I'm not saying every kid is going to not have problems, but what you state is a SOCIAL problem. In places like San Francisco, LA and New York, the problems are minimal compared to the benefits! And you can't assume that every gay guy is living in the fucking Castro surrounded by other gay people. I way more straight friends than gay friends - it's that way for so much of the population that those last points are moot.
It seems you're judging all gays by the visible minority which is not cool.
I know, i was just commenting on the truth of the statement above, and it really does weigh on you knowing that you will be punished for no reason, and that you are considered lower than criminal, enough that you're not even allowed to love someone. Or even be around kids. Alll I know is that I'd be a great father. But no one believes me because of how I am.
