Just popping in to say that any loving family that takes good care of you is far better than no family at all, no matter the genders of the parent(s) involved.
EDIT: Oh jfc the bible thumper is back.
Usually, I'm a pretty firm supporter of gay rights (I have nothing against gays). I don't support LGBT marriage in a church or other religious place, but I think two gays should be allowed to get a civil union. As far as adoption, I'm kinda torn.
Pros: More loving families to take in orphans/adoptees. A gay couple could have a child if they desire.
Cons: Nobody is ENTITLED to children (they're not rights.) Part of growing up involves influences from a feminine and masculine viewpoint. By giving a child only one of these, they miss a crucial viewpoint and influence on their life.
I personally believe most people are born bi and society forces us into one viewpoint or the other. Going by that, growing up in a gay household might influence the child's orientation. (no proof though)
My best friend was raised by a single mother and is one of the greatest, most decent, kindest people I know. Should we forbid single parents from raising children, then? Oh, and guess what, his father wasn't involved in his life at all. He barely had male role models growing up. Guess what, he's not gay! Also, my other best friend grew up in a two parent household. His father is probably one of the manliest men you could ever meet. He had both his father and his older brother as male models, and guess what, he's gay. Surprise! Sexual orientation has NOTHING to do with social conditioning.
The entire human species isn't bisexual. Let's just get that out of the way now. There are many different sexual orientations, and to claim that society "makes" someone one way or the other is bullshit. By that standard, why are some children born into homophobic households homosexual, if their parents and society was telling them it was disgusting? I'll use myself as an example. No one in my family is bisexual or homosexual. Both sides of the family are super conservative and homophobic. My dad is the perfect example of a bigot. Why am I bisexual, then, when, according to your "standard," I should have been pushed one way or the other? But that's a discussion for another day, so I digress.
Oh, and claiming yourself to be a supporter of gay rights, and then turning around and saying they have no right to legal marriage or to give a needy child a loving, stable home, you are clearly NOT for gay rights, as you are saying they should be treated as second class citizens.
People are never born gay or trans gendered
You know what? You're right. I just got out of bed one day, looked around, and said to myself "gee, boobies are great, I think I'll start liking women!" when the majority of my peers in school were incredibly homophobic, my entire family except my mom would reject me if they found out, and I've been treated as a second class citizen ever since. I obviously chose that for myself.
