I'm the child of a gay parent.......

Posted by   + Show Post

ASK ME ANYTHING!

There seems to be much debate over the well being of kids of gay parents..my mother got into a relationship with a woman when I was 12, my brothers were 7 and 2. My bio father was s shitty husband and father. My stepmother treat my mother with love and respect and I believe my brothers and myself have a very healthy outlook on relationships.. I was also raised in a very small, Christian town in the south...and no, I am not gay or "want" to be gay or have ever "wanted" to be with another woman. I was never directly or indirectly "taught" to be gay, I was however taught to love and respect who you are with. I found my husband, fell in love with my husband, and we have a very good marriage.

Complete and utter BS. Every major organization with expertise in child welfare, development and psychology t is in support of gay parenting, and no legitimate study will point out that the children of gay parents overwhelmingly fare worse than the children of straight parents.

There was actually a thing on it a few months back on here.

Quoting TruthSeeker.:

  Pedophilia as a sexual orientation just seriously made me puke in my mouth.

Quoting Dee0886:

Yes but it has nothing to do with gay or straight. More straight married men with children are more likely to be child molesters. Some people believe pedophilia is just another sexual orientation and the only difference is age of consent....I'm not even touching that subject lol

Ummm...statisically speaking children raised by lesbians are better off than children raised by any other type of couples.

I think kids can and will be screwed up one way or another no matter who their parents are LOL.
