Should Gays and Lesbians Be Restricted from Adopting Children?

"The statutory laws in most States are largely silent on the issue of adoption by gay and lesbian persons. At this time, only two States, Florida and Mississippi, explicitly prohibit adoption by homosexuals in their statutes. Utah bars adoption by persons who are cohabiting but not legally married; this language could be interpreted to encompass gay and lesbian adoptions. In Connecticut, the sexual orientation of the prospective adoptive parent may be considered, notwithstanding provisions in the State's laws prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation."

Having two same sex parents is a wholly unnatural condition and one that will have a profoundly negative impact on the child's/children's emotional and social development.

As the child/children will undergo taunts at school along with suffering eternal psychological damage once he/she realises they are living as part of a bizarre family unit with a couple of sexually abnormal parents, all gay adoptions should be outlawed.

Take a good look at all the reasons you just gave, they are all caused by a socially constructed stigma about it rather than anything inherent to gay people raising children in and of itself. It is clearly not gay couples who should have society's ignorance forced upon them, but society that should shut the fuck up and stop perceiving things in the retarded way that they do.

For those of us who are not post-modernist neo-marxists, its easy to see why you are wrong. Gay couples raising kids will never be the norm, because the vast majority of people are heterosexual. This is not a social construct, it is biology. Now run along back to mommy's basement.

Two loving parents, regardless of gender, can do a better job of taking care of a child and loving them, than the orphanage can.

So you won’t be adopting then if one is to use your “criteria”

I am a border-line genius. When I look at you I see a mindless robot that can barely be considered human. You are nothing but a worthless blowjob machine sucking the establishment's dick and repeating the right wing version of a politically correct narrative. For example you are willing to believe literally anything said about Marx or Communism from any source as long as it is negative but if you are exposed to anything resembling nuance or a positive statement about it your mind immediately snaps shut.

Either way though, I will not be adopting or having children because I would rather focus on making my own life count instead of being responsible for someone else's if you know what I mean (which I'm sure you don't because you don't know anything).

Being gay isn't a legitimate measure to judge a persons qualification to be a good parent. I would question a persons parental fitness if they want guns in school, if they want, or accept, a liar in the White House, if they think a woman's rights are not important, if they don't care about clean water and air for their children and THEIR children, if they have no compassion for mothers and children running for their lives, if they think that a person's color makes them more or less of a person, if they think people with a different belief are "not as good as themselves" …. I'd take a gay parent over ANY of those. :-)

But everything you said prior to this was hate speech against conservatives for having different beliefs though.

You KNOW I'm talking about children and parents and religion, NOT conservatives and politics. Not even a nice try.

So you'd rather have a gay person over Ilhan Omar and Keith Ellison? We agree on something.

WHAT??? I'm not looking for a parent. If I WAS I'd take one of them over those of a different belief …. like FromWithin or Outlaw … etc. Yep, I'd "rather"! Keith Ellison would likely be out, but, Ilhan Omar might be interesting, I'd have to look her under … (oops … OVER) Since I'm not prejudiced. ;-)

Side: Yes
