I dont know really.  There are ups and downs with that happening.  What do you think?

And yes, I think they should be able to.  There is nothing wrong with homosexuality so why should we prevent them from being able to adopt children?

It just depends if they're good parents. Fuck their sexuality. I'd rather have a fag raise a kid than most foster families.

I agree, but the child might be embaressed once he or she gets older, and they might be teased.  But then again most children would accept it.

But you really can't use the potential to be teased by intolerant peers as a reason to stop adoption. 

If that happened then Black people wouldn't be able to have kids, some one might call them "nigger".  And forget interracial couples.

Then it would move to fat people, kids could be teased for having a fat mom.

Kids get teased all the time, that's like saying we should abort every single child just on the off chance they might be retarded, so they don't get teased.

Yeah, I guess it's just here.  If you're homosexual you're an outcast from society in Hawaii.  No boys or girls want to be your friend if you are.

Most kids aren't that evil. If gay people are accepted I don't see why a kid with gay parents wouldn't be.

Still, if that is the problem we need to work on getting kids to accept gays, not ban gays from being able to adopt kids.

That's not the fault of the gay parents, though. It's the damn kids' fault, as well as their parents' for rasing them to make fun of homosexuality.

You might as well take away everyone's kids, because nearly all of them will get made fun of at some point.

They should be allowed to adopt.  I honestly wouldn't care if I were adopted by a straight or gay couple, just as long as I had a home and didn't have to live in a friggin' orphanage.
And about kids being outcasts because of their parents...the only way to solve that problem is to integrate gay couples into society and allow people to get used to the changes.  People used to have problems with interracial couples (some still do, but they're assholes) but the only way the society could accept them was as more intermarriage took place, and it became normal.

If you think homosexuals shouldn't have children, then people that live in trailer parks and minorities shouldn't have kids either.

Yes, as long as they're not horribly biased toward straight people or something, and start teaching their kids that homosexuality is right and anything else is wrong. 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.

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.

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.

Probably because homosexuals as parents of will result in the kid being made fun of really badly.  And when if the kid is self-conscience of how everyone else's parents are man and woman?  They'll be more made fun of for having homosexual parents than if they were black or mexican people.  Face it.  Kids are dicks these days.  But I'm for it for some reason.  It's just hard to explain.

If getting made fun of is a reason not to allow people to adopt, then I guess poor people shouldn't have kids because they might get made fun of for being poor.

Also the people who belong to certain religions shouldn't be allowed to have kids(oh don't tempt me with this one) because some one might pick on the kids for the religious beliefs.   When I was in 6th grade I used to like this girl who was a Jehovah's Witness and some kid kept picking on her on the bus ride home--so I punched him in the face(he also tried to steal my shoe too but that's only a small reason of why I punched him). 

You can't use the potentional to be picked on because of the intolerance of others as a reason for not allowing people to raise children.

I think this is totally acceptable I my self coming from a foster home know it can be terrible at times. I also have a  friend from a foster home who is still stuck in it and his whole life story is trying to get away from it. Homosexuality should not effect the ability to love a child, If these parents go through the proper adoption papers and the Social worker for the baby being adopted thinks these people are good then they are good. there should be no bias to whether the parents are gay or not. Also i would like to note that there are so many children around the world who are deeply in need of a loving family, and they have nothing simply put if there are more people adopting the better It just means less children dying of starvation and many other problems.


so in turn ALLOW HOMOSEXUALS TO ADOPT KIDS!!!!

Honestly, I think that we shouldn't be able to raise kids. In my opinion the kids would end up... screwed up in some way from that. Their peers would more than likely tease them, any teachers might treat the child differently, the kid could offend others in early schooling by showing affection to the same gender (I mean like elementary school. I don't think that homosexuality should be encouraged at such an age).

I myself am a homosexual girl but I don't ever want kids. Even if I did, I would think about how the kid's life would be messed up from that.

We can't prevent perfectly capable parents from being able to raise children, just because people are intolerant. When I was in 6th grade I liked a girl who was a Jehovah's Witness and people picked on her for it.  Should we say that because they may be a target of abuse by peers that the parents shouldn't have kids?(Although not allowing Christians to reproduce is a good idea.  caterpie; )

Having a father figure is beneficial to many.  When I was two my father left.  It does create some psychological damage( maybe moreso for males than females. I don't know) in the child.  They may blame themselves for it.  They might think that they aren't good enough to keep their father around.  I mean why wouldn't a father want their child?   Even being raised by my step-father I did have thoughts that it may have been something wrong with me.   I would probably be a lot worse off without being raised with a father figure.

I agree with JMV that having a good male figure in one's life CAN be (but obviously it can very) incredibly beneficial for some. My life wouldn't be nearly as good as it is without my dad's presence. Two women couldn't do what my parents have done with their business, and because of that, I live a great life.

I personally believe that a loving home is far more important than a bit of redicule at school. If a kid needs a loving home, and two homosexuals can provide just that, than why not? Wouldn't you rather feel loved at home and disliked at school than the other way around? I would, personally.

Of course, as Bluaki pointed out, this isn't the case with everybody. Everyone has their own opinions on the subject; it's very open ended.

Well, by "father figure", I didn't mean solely men.   I guess a mother could fulfill that need, but it would cause a lack of a mother-like figure, which is also needed.

Two parents are needed to help fill the role of both a mother and a father, regardless of their actual gender.

Yeah, makes sense. That's actually a pretty good point.
The father figure doesn't have to be male, and the mother doesn't have to be female. Gender shouldn't change how one would act.

I disagree with most of this post.

The majority of gays are the ones that don't get much attention, the ones who AREN'T leather-wearing horny fags (fag being a term I use to describe the dumbshits in this category).
So yes, I agree that homosexuals should be allowed to adopt children. Hell, Steal and I know someone who has two lesbian mothers, and he turned out fine, despite being a bit annoying, but that's no characteristic that's exclusive to gay parents.

Sure thing.

But we can't take this in the total opposite way. IE, making stupid laws that let gays get kids easier than straight people are something. Whatever couple is best gets the kid imo.

Gay couples raising kids is kinda unnormal and not the typical family thing. But if we hold back on it we're just slowing down progress.

I see no issue with it.  If a gay couple wishes to adopt and raise a child, they should be able to.  It allows a gay couple to still have a family while providing many children with home and family life instead of going through foster care.

As for it being "weird"  if the child is raised with gay parents, they'll generally see it as normal since that what they've grown up seeing.  It actually helps in making homosexual couple become part of the 'norm' since the next generation wil see it less and less as an oddity.

I'm pretty sure those are mostly coincidences. Self-esteem and confidence and things like that are more related to how a parent treats their child rather than sexual orientation.

I think that it would be fine for homosexuals to adopt, and I honestly don't see the child get made fun of a lot. It at least wouldn't happen where I live. The only problem is that I could see the parents push the kid into being homosexual, and/or see it being really weird when the child gets a girlfriend or something. I guess it just depends how comfortable the two fathers (or mothers in that case) are with the situation.

I really don't see how that will effect the child all that much, don't some heterosexual parents try to push their children to also be heterosexual, or at least hope that they are heterosexual?  I wouldn't expect the number of homosexual children to be substantially higher than homosexuals that come from idealistic families.

Hell yes, they would be. @_@
I know kids around here who get made fun of for having a black mother and white father (and vice versa), I definitely think people would make fun of someone who has 'two daddies' or 'two mommies', at least when they're little. Don't we have some instinct that tells us that having a male parent and a female parent is... for lack of a better word, correct? Small children who don't yet know what homosexuality is would definitely make fun of their peer for having two parents of the same gender; when they grow up, not so much. This goes back to how my peers are made fun of for having two parents of a different race, they were made fun of when we were younger by peers who had two parents of the same race, because they didn't understand yet that two people of a different race could fall in love and have children.

And to answer this question (if I haven't already in this thread), of course. Do they even ask your sexual orientation on adoption papers? It seems a little silly to, to me. I don't know of a reason why homosexuals shouldn't be able to (unless they're abusive or poor, etc., or any other reason why a heterosexual couple would also be denied).

I doubt they ask you if you're homosexual on the papers, but I could be wrong.  But like JMV said, some states do block unmarried couples from adopting, effectively banning homosexuals.  I know some two states that do allow it, but for most it seems to be a case by case thing.

How do you not see that happening?  Maybe in high school it wouldn't happen, but definitely they would have to deal with it throughout middle school. 

There's a few people at my school who have been openly gay since like 7th grade and nobody ever makes fun of them. In middle school one of them was insanely popular, and still is.

Maybe where I live is nicer or something, but I honestly can't see people getting made fun for having homosexual dads. I would make fun of my friend if his parents were homosexual, but only to mess with him. I don't see anybody at my school doing it to hurt people.

I really don't see how that will effect the child all that much, don't some heterosexual parents try to push their children to also be heterosexual, or at least hope that they are heterosexual?  I wouldn't expect the number of homosexual children to be substantially higher than homosexuals that come from idealistic families.

I've asked my parents what they would do if I came out of the closet (just wondering), and my mom and dad said that they'd be okay with it, but they would be a little sad. I understand, since I know that my mom would love to have grandchildren, and that would be more complicated if I had to adopt.

Of course they should. It might be awkward for the kid to tell everyone, but who cares? As long as they are good parents, it is perfectly fine with me.

In all seriousness, I'm glad gay marriage in America settled this issue here pretty much. We just need to improve other social equality issues like trans issues and issues stemming from income inequality like access to healthcare.
Title: Re: Should homosexuals be able to adopt and raise kids?
Post by: antmaster5000 on April 21, 2016, 04:18:34 AM
it's crazy how quickly it was "settled" actually
like, 10 years ago there was a pretty significant debate about it, and regardless of how moronic the opposition was, it was still socially acceptable to be against it

now if you are at all against gay marriage it is a huge fucking deal and you're labeled as a bigot instantly
although im sure that isnt the case everywhere in the states- im kind of biased being from liberal washington

it's because obama got the corporations on his side now w/ bailout money. also being pro-gay is good marketing nowadays. kinda disturbing, but at least it's not an..evil sentiment

the corporations know that if they put the pride flag on any shitty product e.g. doritos, they know the fags will eat it up. it wasn't obama that did this. It was the Kardashians of the movement, HRC(Human Rights Campaign), that totes did this.
