In my country the discussion revolves mostly around what influence will gay couple have upon their children.
I must admit that I sat and thought about it quite a few times, but allI know is that...we can't know yet for sure. We need a few generations of adults growing in gay parenting households, to see if indeed it might have any influence on their own sexual perception and choice.
On the other hand, even if this influence would happen, I still do not see the issue.
Rather than abusive neglectful parents or no parents at all or a chain of foster homes, much better would be some normal, loving parents. Who happen to be gay. Fine. But what's the use to have straight parents if they make your life and their a straight hell. I imagine the children avilable for doption are not exactly coming from some paradise situations.
Also, the main counter argument that I have met in my discussions on this topic was "but wht if the kids turn gay too"
I have no idea. But I still can't see this as bad. We're not exactly on the brink of extinction. Our sexual preferences do not define us as humans. We hve gy and straight politicians, actors, artists, workers, doctors, lawyers. If my child would need surgery I would seek for the best surgeon, not for the STRAIGHtest surgeon or well, GAYest surgeon. Same , if I would look for best lawyer, best shop owner, best farrier etc.
I consider gay people must be accepted completely into society, as parents and as couples. Yes, their own sexual choice is not mine, but there's more to a man or a woman than who they choose to shag with.
