    Is it right for homosexuals to be able to adopt??

    I personally do not think its right, i think that its not fair to the child, because "some" (not all) homosexuals want a child has a fasion statement and thats not right nor fair on the child.

    Also has proper family values gone out of the window, whatever happened to "mum and Dad"?

    So i am asking should it be:

    Mum and dad?
    Dad and Dad?
    or even

    Mum and Mum?

    Can you add another option? All of the above?

    And I think your reasoning is flawed. Some heterosexuals want a child as a fashion statement too, that doesn't stop us from letting them marry.

    Hmm

    I don't personally feel it is right.

    Would you hire a gay man to be a nanny for your 5 year old son or a lesbian for your little girl? I would not want that.

    I think that all people that adopt should undergo much more then a Home study, they should undergo extensive psychoanalysis for an extended period before and for several years after with the whole family.


    I don't even think a lesbian should be allowed to run a girls dorm at collage. { my sister has that problem now} I mean what's the difference between hiring a man or a woman to live in a girls/boys dorm. i mean if the person is gay, either way the chance for sexual inappropriateness is there. So to with a gay or lesbian with a child of the same sex.

    I think you might be getting homosexuality mixed up with paedophilia here!

    Not the same thing.

    Agreed, I wouldn't reject a homosexual nanny on just his/her homosexuality alone.

    Yes.

    I doubt anyone would want to go through the hell that is adoption, pay through the nose for it, and then have to care and raise that child, for a fashion statement. If they adopt a child and love and care for it, why not? Would you rather the child not be adopted at all? There are millions of children who are without home and/or love in this world. I think that is unfair. I also think allowing homosexuals to adopt hereby ensures those children are going to a loving and caring home.

    How exactly would you define "proper family values"?

    Yes. I have a friend, who happens to be homosexual, and he's the one I usually call on to babysit the children if my husband and I want to catch a movie or dinner. He's great with them and they adore him. My eldest thinks he's the best thing aside from cars (my 2 year old son is obsessed with cars).

    I wouldn't even ask what their sexuality was to be honest. It really is none of my business. I would, however, be concerned about is their experience and references and also if my children liked them. That's kind of what matters when hiring a nanny.

    Then don't do it.

    Do you think all homosexuals are raging sex fiends out to plunder and conquer? Do you think a lesbian running a dorm room will scream "we come for your women folk" as she turns out the dorm lights and locks the doors?

    Do you think homosexuals are automatically paedophiles because they are homosexuals?

    I think children still need a mother and a father. However, who I am to deny homosexual couples adoption..
    It's a difficult subject, to me at least.

    That is there regardless of the sexual orientation of the adopters.

    To answer the question, yes. People are capable of being good parents reagardless of their sexual orientation.

    But I have problems with the poll options too--there should be an "all of the above."

    For those who are arguing that a child needs both a mother and a father, I presume you would also be against single parents? So you would be OK with taking a child from a single mother and giving it to a lesbian mother and a gay father?

    the majority pf single mothers has husbands, boy friends, girl friends, and partners once upon a time, and they're kids generally see the adsent father, ok i know in some cases the dads dont see the kids and also vise versa but they generally have male/female rolemodels

    Almost every state in the union refuses to grant adoption rights to a single male with no children, not so with a female. So considering the comments some of you have made you must think that the government thinks all single men are pedophiles? or is it because "the chance for sexual inappropriateness is there" ?

    True. I wasn't arguing that single mother's shouldn't be able to raise children, just that the logic being used could lead to a conclusion that 2 gay parents (who were present & fully involved) were better than 1 single parent.

    Isn't this also true for single mothers ? Ok maybe the chance is much smaller, but there is still a chance.

    I totally agree, but for some reason the government does not.

    Maybe because it is natural for women to have children, while it is not for men. Women are evolutionary wise very well equipped to deal with children while men are not..
    It's really pretty sensible..

    That was one idiotic post. There's a fucking difference between being gay and being a paedophile.

    what do you mean men are not meant to have children? Men are equipped to be fathers just as women are equipped to be mothers.

    I am confused as to how a bi-sexual swinger can say proper family values has gone out the window.
