Default why are people so against same sex couples raising children? – 01-03-2009, 11:17 PM

Who are they to judge who can and can’t raise children? Do these people ever consider that a same sex couple may think that some behaviours of those who critisize are not desirable to teach children? I know many’traditional’families who are horrible places for children to be brought up in, I also know of same sex couples who do a wonderful job raising children. Why are certain people so judgemental as to think they can dictate something as personal as a persons sexuality?

I agree. People are immature in this area and can’t move past their unfounded fears&the ignorant ways they themselves were raised, even in’this day and age’…

I don’t know. Some people think they are better than others, and any other way of doing things is WRONG.

Because they are being judgmental.They think they are morally superior.Others may feel that the child will miss out on the missing male (or female) figure – but that can be true in any parenting situation. I know many traditional families where the father is there but emotionally absent. What damage is that doing? I can tell you that is doing something.Kids need the same thing: love, security, stability. Whether that comes from a traditional family, grandparents, adoptive parents, single parents or same sex parents, its all good.

I’m not really sure, but I think people are under the impression that same sex couple will either A) Molest the child if they are the same sex as them (I’m not kidding. Apparently"gay"is equal to"pedophilia"to certain people) or B) The couple will raise their child to BE gay.

I have no idea why people think this way! Whatever someones personal beliefs and opinions are, they are entitled to them, but not to give them if they’re not asked for! I think it’s incredibly rude that many people automatically slam a person’s ability to be a good parent based on who they love! I don’t personally know any same sex couples with children, but I know a LOT of male/female couples who should never have had children!

I think it’s misguided fear. People think of them as child molesters which is just stupid. They worry about the child growing up without a mother or father figure, when alot of kids grow up without one figure or the other. I personally have absolutely zero problem with same sex couples raising kids.

u cant say that all people that are against same sex parents raising children are all bad parents. Gay parents just have to be patient and show that their child isnt any different than their child.And Sarah, wtf are u talking about"this day and age"?Black people have been and are still being discriminated against as are other races. This same sex issue has just start to boil… and prolly will never cool down.

People all have their own opinions but i know plenty of gay couples and believe me despite what some people say homosexuality is not a choice. and no matter if your gay or not you should be able to raise children just like everyone else. in fact i read somewhere that gay couples are more likely to raise children who become good people because they teach thier children tolerance of everyone despite thier differences. i am very straight but i support gay marriage all the way!!!
