Not because I think homosexuality is actually wrong, but because it would be the same as straight parents teaching kids homosexuality is wrong, which is something that happens quite often. So really I'm saying the parents' sexuality has nothing to do with it, just their parenting.
Yet, for some reason, heterosexual parents shouldn't be held to the same standard?  psyduck;

I don't know.

I don't have a stance on homosexuality at this moment, but aside from the ups, including the fact that the couple get to enjoy life together, there are a bunch of downs. That adopted kid would hate his life because he'd be made of throughout most of his life. And that's... bad.

as has been pointed out, many, many kids are constantly made fun of and don't even have gay parents, adoptive or otherwise

also, i really doubt his coworker in the cubicle next to him would constantly riff on his gay parents  psyduck;

good point edumacate;

But the parents may convince their kid to be gay himself, and most kids nowadays being close-minded would always make fun of him for being gay.

Don't most of them do that?

I've heard several instances of where a gay kid tells their parents they're gay and they flip out.

Maybe I just live under a rock. Sry.  psyduck;

so they didn't urge you to but they wanted you to be  psyduck;
did you skim their thoughts telepathically

freaking out is a bit different from actively pushing a child one way or the other, and don't you think gay parents (who, as you pointed out, would probably have been tormented much as a child) would be a bit more open-minded and understanding?

No, but when I told them there was a girl I liked, they were happy that I was straight.

Umm... yeah.

(Oh, I see about that last comment. I didn't intend the smiley, but the word "rock".) Yeah, I fail at debating. 'Wish I was better.  edumacate;
