  • Yeah serious. Friends of me (lesbian) have a daughter and they are raising her together. They are lovely parents to that girl and i dont think what the sexual orientation has to do with parenting skills.

  • Someone's sexual orientation does not define their ability to parent. Good Parents are people who have stability, lots of love, time and patience. That can come in any form. I do think people who are Gay need to have a good understanding of how their children might possibly be affected by society and be prepared to help their children cope. As long as they are stong enough to withstand the inevitable criticism....I say go for it.

  • I don't see how the gay factor has anything to do with parenting skills.

  • Well whether its alright or not doesnt seem to matter. It is literally impossible to homosexuals to procreate because two women and two men cant make a baby. Theyd have to adopt or go to a sperm bank and then do things that way. My only concern is that most of the time if the couple splits then only one parent has the legal right to the child, therefore cheating a child out of one or the other parent if its a hostile break up. I also see it as confusing during developmental times for the child when his peers might have a mom and dad and they dont. I guess I reserve my right to see the outcome of the children in the next 20 yrs. Then someone can actually answer the question because Im sure studies are being done on this.

  • i understand that people are starting to get annoyed with that fact thats lots of people ask "gay" questions, but i was generally wondering what women thought of this subject because some people think its wrong dont they?
