    I like this question because my best friend of over 20 years is gay and has a little girl the same age as my daughter. I'm actually glad her SO is there to help raise her daughter because they balance eachother quite well. I'm not sure how the little girl is going to "turn out" but if she has issues I'm sure it will be from a myriad of other problems and not from the fact she has two mommies. I chose it depends on the women involved, though, because I could see it possibly being a problem, but ALL parents - heterosexual and homosexual - have the ability to hurt a child.

    Being gay doesn't mean you are either going to molest a child or make them turn out gay. Plenty of straight parents have gay kids. And if you are afraid of molestation, then I would ask is it right for straight women to raise boys? Why would the mother being gay be any different?

    We're raising one of each so be sure to let me know if we're "wrong"!

    I don't have a problem with Gay women raising kids but The problem I have is when the mother of the child tells her two year old to call her daddy and the partner to call her mother and other gay women friends call them uncle that just really confuses the child so much. I just don't think its healthy for a child to be raised in that environment but yes they're some good Gay parents and yes they're some families who are straight with Gay kids but thats just my opinion.

    My gay sister has been raising my neice for 13yrs now. So far, my neice is fine and dandy and normal and some may be happy to know, straight as an arrow. She currently is crushing hard on my son's best friend.

    i have a problem with too many kids needing a good home to not allow gay women to raise kids. that is just so wrong on so many levels. Sexual preference is genetic not cultural

    I think heterosexual divorce causes more damage than a loving and committed gay couple.
