Today at work me and this guy I work with were having a discussion on letting gay couples adopt. He's against it because he believes it will hurt the childs development. I'm for it because as long as the couple loves the child and treats it well it doesn't matter if they like to have butt sex.Whats your thoughts on the subject?

If butt sex is the only argument, then straight couples have butt sex too. Therefore, gay couples can adopt./argument

The kid won't know that having two dads isn't normal,Until he goes to school and gets made fun of unmercifully for 12 years.Yea, but thats a fair exchange for 2 gay guys to pretend they are just like everyone else. Why can't they pretend they are into women long enough to have kids, and then visit them every other month like straight guys?

But if the kid has 2 moms, he'll be the most popular kid in school.

Hmmm......gay couples should be allowed to adopt (female babies).. I dunno... Im not saying they shouldnt be allowed to adopt, but If two dudes adopt a boy kid, and the kid grows up in pink and rainbows and lisps and techno music..well chances are he;s going to be sexing some butt too. and not that there is anyting wrong with that..

Yeah, I just threw that out there to get the discussion going. Although I do believe that its intolerant.A whole group of people who are otherwise normal except for their sexual preference want to have a family and you would deny them of that because they kid might get made fun of? What if my mom is fat? Is she not able to have a family because kids at school might pick on me for that too?

1. Going back in history you can replace "two dads" with a number of different things...and in each instance society just needed time to get used to it before it was eventually accepted. 2. I think you'd have to talk to some children of gay parents about their experiences before making assumptions about how awful their lives must have been. Of course they were made fun of sometimes, but who knows what they'd say.

It's a reasonable point.One issue is that there are way more kids out there that need parents than there are people looking to adopt. I think you'd be hard-pressed to find many (non fundamentalist christian) experts who say that a child is better off in an orphanage or passed between foster parents than with a loving gay couple for their whole lives.
You got a date Wednesday, baby!

All studies show that the ideal family is a mom and a dad. Why allow anything but the best for our kids? They are our future

Ya, I'd be cool with voting yes on something like this, to allow gay couples to adopt, but i'd still wonder what the rainbows and techno can do to a human mind after years.

Obviously that's better than a single parent or no parents, but I've never seen a mom+dad vs mom+mom vs dad+dad study.
