whats your thoughts on gay marriage? and should a gay couple be able to raise a kid?

my thoughts are if it makes them happy then they should be able to get married and they can raise a kid as long as they let the kid grow up like a normal kid and let him/hermake their own desecions.

  • 1st off who am i to judge? just as long as two people love eachother and respect eachother and both really want to commit to a marriage then they should be able to get married.
    as for raising children, why not? i'm for it as long as the child gets as much TLC as the child needs then it all good!!!

  • i personally feel that a child needs a male and a female role model.

  • No ones businees but their own. I can bet that some of those kids live happier then a lot of other kids with a male and a female.

    Female role model can also be an Aunt, Grandma, even a neighbor.

    People just need to mind there business on this issue.

    We have a couple next to us and they are gay and have a lil boy they adopted. That kid is more stable then most of the other kids with a mom and dad living in the same househole.
    So throw that theory out the window!

  • Absolutely, they should be able to raise children. Anonymous said a child needs a male/female role model....I disagree!! As long as you love, take care of & teach children all the wonders of the world, that's what they need. Besides, look at some traditional couples who "think" they know but have no clue. Just because there's a male/female role doesn't always mean that's the best for a child.

  • this is just another topic instead of an issue that the government is using to distract us from what's really going on and real issues that are affecting us.
    like why do the oil companies get to do whatever they want? why doesn't the fda do what it is supposed to do? why didn't bhutto's revelation that bin laden is dead ever reach the american press?

  • I agree that children need role models from both sexes, however, with the high numbers of children that go UNadopted each day, I think that gay couples should be able to adopt and raise children, too.

  • A child needs love, nurturing, support, understanding--to be raised in an environment that will allow for the child to grow and develop they way they need to. It doesn't matter if the parents are straight or gay. Who says all straight couples are great parents? Even single parents sometimes have to do it completely on their own w/o support or help from others, and as long as the children are loved and taken care of, they do just fine. I am not anyone's judge--and with any parent, as long as the child is put first, and their needs are met, that is what matters most.

  • IT DOES MATTER IF A CHILD HAS THE SAME SEX PARENT, LONG AS THE CHILD IS LOVED AND TAKING CARE OF! i THINK THAT SOME GAY COUPLES TAKE A LOT BETTER CARE OF THE CHILD THEN A NORMAL COUPLE WOULD. I SUPPORT IT ALL THE WAY!
