    I think Gay Adoptioin is good. If a couple wants a child, but are not able to reproduce (obviously) they should have the option of having a child.

    The only thing I don't like about it is how the child will feel. He/she might feel different, etc.
    And he/she might be picked on, etc

    Soo yeahh...

    Yeah, the childs peers will pick on him/her maybe because he/she has the same gender parents probably.
    I had a friend with 2 mothers when I was younger and I never knew that they were together though.
    I didn't have a problem with it and when my mom told me, I still didn't have a problem with it.
    Gay adoption is perfectly fine. If the couple wants children and isn't able to have any they should have the option.

    lucifer's_angel:
    There are good and bad parents of all genders, races, ages, and orientations.
    I believe this is true, and that a loving, financially stable family, whether hetero or homosexual, should have the equal right to adopt a child.
    There is the problem, though, that even if the agency allows gay couples to adopt, individual people who work there will often favor heterosexual couples. (This is often a problem in real estate too)

    ^ good point. Because even though it might be a law or legal or something people still don't follow the rules.

    i honestly believe that love is love. people shouldn't be judged on their sexual orientation. i think that gay adoption is a good thing. there are sooo many children that need good homes and if gay/lesbian couples were permitted to adopt, there would be less children without loving families. a fear of some people is that gay couples or lesbian couples will raise gay/lesbian children. which isn't always true. my friend has a gay uncle and both of his parents were straight. i think that gay marriage/gay adoption has become such as issue in the past decade or so. but like i said i think it should be allowed.

    People do not accept homosexuals because they say humanity was not created that way, meaning we were made to pro-create. Obviously,homosexuals don't. But here is an interesting fact. In Quebec (Canada...NO we dont live in igloos!), every family has, on average, 1.5 children. Does that mean every adult in these families had intercourse only 1.5 times in their lives? Not so sure about that. It will help increase the number of children adoptions. Some people believe that a child who grows up with two same-sex parent might not develop ideally. But this has never been proved. And does that mean that a hundred percent of the children raised with opposite-sex parents will develop without any problems? I'd chose having two loving moms or dads over some alchoholist and his whore junkie of a wife any day

    I think that in principle, it shouldn't even be looked twice at.

    But in reality, some children will face bullying for their parentage, but if you think you can handle that kind of thing, then it shouldn't be a problem.

    So I'm all for it, really... as long as the damn homophobes would just STFU and realise that gay people can be just as good parents.

    If you want to be a parent I think its totally fine.

    Why would sexuality matter.

    I really hate that these days.
    Hi Im gay.... -everyone shuns-

    Get over it people.

    Yeah I think it would be a bit hard on the kids because of the buling, not just from their school mates but teachers too would look weirdly at you if you'd tell them that you've got 2 daddies. Not to mention that it would be a bit difficult to explain to a 5 year old what homosexuality is.

    Also I think people don't accept gay adoption because when you mean gay couple, you mean 2 men. And today's society still thinks that a man can't take care of a baby as well as a woman could.
    Lesbian couples have other options appart adoption like in vitro fertilisation, and even if they would want to get an adoption it would be easier for them to get it than it would be for a homosexual couple.
    It's not just the sexual orientation, it's a complicated problem and people just need to be more open minded.

    And some will be bullied for being adopted.
    Some for being fat.
    Some for being slow.
    Some for being dumb.
    Some for sleeping with a boy before they're married.
    It's stupid to pass up a suitable home because the parents are gay.
    A home where you could possibly get bullied or no home at all?

    For the record, not everyone gets bullied.
    Secondly, it's not very hard to explain to a five-year-old what homosexuality is.

    I agree, I see nothing wrong with gay adoption. In my opinion, everyone is entitled to being a parent if they wish, no matter of gender or sexualiity.

    Where I'm from, it doesn't matter if your parents are gay, bi, straight, or purple, if you're adopted or in foster care, you're made fun of. No matter where you go in life, there'll always be someone who teases you, and makes fun of you. Sometimes for things that nobody would imagine being teased for.

    So, I think, if a gay couple wants to adopt, and be a loving parent, as they might have always dreamed of, why should laws be there to prevent that? They're no different from your average Adam & Eve couple, except for the sexuality. In reality, they might be better parents than said Adam and Eve.

    So yes, I think they should be allowed. And people preventing that should go fuck themselves. =/

    If the two adopting persons can financially, emotionally, andsocially support the child, I believe gay adoption is neither bad nor good. It's mutual. Just like a guy and a woman adopting.

    I think that it doesn't matter who you are, you can adopt, as long as you do not have a history in child abuse, like sexually or phisically etc. As long as you will be a good parent and make the right decisions throughout the childs life then I think that you should be given the go ahead to proceed. As long as you have in mind what is best for the child then, I agree.

    I honestly don't understand why people can treat others with such hate, I mean apart from religious reasons there is absolutely no reason why anyone should be treated unfairly. But even religious reasons are flawed.
    One could argue that go didn't mean for people to be attracted to their own gender but then you could argue why did God create homosexuals if he hates them so much.

    There is absolutely nothing but close-minded people stopping homosexuals from leading a regular happy life with their partner. Well this is my opinion anyway. Unless you turn into another version of Voldemort, no matter what you are still human and aslong as you can provide for a child well enough then there shouldn't be anything stopping you from adopting.

    lets keep children away from gay families because oh no! they might become gay and have their own personalities and opinions.
    rather than give the children to a loving family that can bring them up in a stable home and teach them morals, we'll put them into an abusive family or a rich family.
    yeah, because that is SO much better.

    pffffft!
