Just this week, thousands of opposite sex parents were reported to Child Protective Services for physical abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect of their own children. That does not include the unreported cases. Having one parent of each gender is no guarantee the child will be wanted, let alone survive.
While not all same sex parents will be great parents, the difference is that they are always motivated to be parents, while opposite sex parents are often not motivated and sometimes resentful. Others simply have no idea of how to be a good parent and repeat the abuses of their own parents. Again, over 30 years of research and clinical experience has revealed the relationship between the parent and child is the determining variable for healthy adjustment, not the gender of the parent.
Again; Dr. David Brodzinsky: The issue is not the structural variable, biological versus nonbiological, one parent versus two parent. The issue is really the process variables, how children are cared for, is the child provided warmth, it the child provided consistency of care, is the child provided a stimulated environment, is the e child given support.... and when you take a look at structural variables, there's not all that much support that structural variable in and of themselves are all that important.
Dr. Pepper Shwartz: "the primary quality of parenting is not the parenting structure, or biology, but is the nurturing relationship between parent and child." (Hawaii Supreme Court testamony)
Additionally; "The nation's most influential pediatrician's group has endorsed gay marriage, saying a stable relationship between parents regardless of sexual orientation contributes to a child's health and well-being.
The American Academy of Pediatrics' new policy, published online Thursday, cites research showing that the parents' sexual orientation has no effect on a child's development. Kids fare just as well in gay or straight families when they are nurturing and financially and emotionally stable, the academy says."

Politically correct BS at the expense of children. Biological parents are statistically better by far.

No one is prevented from having biological children by treating same sex couples equally under the marriage laws. Those so inclined will continue to do so, whether married or not.

Children are not required for marriage. They benefit from having married parents, but many couples cannot have children, while others have no desire. Children of same sex parent families do just as well.

Adoption studies have reinforced the findings that the most important variable is the relationship between the parent and child. Not gender, not biology. Quality of nurturing relationship is the most important factor.

Common sense, common observation, should make this finding of research and clinical observation, self evident.

There are NO legitimate studies of lesbian couples compared to hetero couples. There are NO studies of gay couples parenting.

Common sense should tell you that a child needs and deserves both genders parenting.

Two SS adults can be as nurturing to a child as two adults of opposite gender.

What role do adult genitals serve in parenting?

'Adult genitals'?

That's how you view parenting?

And you see no distinction between a father and mother? Wonder how your parents feel getting thrown under the bus...

You only prove why SS couples are unqualified to be parents.

On the contrary. There are MANY studies done over the last 30 years referring gay vs. straight parenting. A recent report in the American Journal of Pediatrics reads: Many studies have demonstrated that children's well-being is affected much more by their relationships with their parents, their parents' sense of competence and security, and the presence of social and economic support for the family than by the gender or sexual orientation of their parents. Lack of opportunity for same-gender couples to marry adds to families' stress, which affects the health and welfare of all household members. Because marriage strengthens families and, in so doing, benefits children's development, children should not be deprived of the opportunity for their parents to be married. Paths to parenthood that include assisted reproductive techniques, adoption, and foster parenting should focus on competency of the parents rather than their sexual orientation.(Report co-authored by Benjamin Siegel, a School of Medicine professor of pediatrics, and Ellen Perrin, a Tufts University professor of pediatrics and director of development and behavioral pediatrics.

There are good gay parents and bad gay parents, just as there are good straight parents and bad straight parents. Sexual orientation doesn't matter. Only to the homophobes out there.

Dipshit, you're the one who keeps claiming that there should be one male and one female in a child's life. So what purpose do genitals serve in raising children?

You are again describing a mother and father as simply being 'genitals'???

You are a dipshit and an ass all in one.

Stay away from children!

Here are just 3 of the many: Melbourne University in Australia: Australian Study of Child Health in Same-Sex Families, The Williams Institute - Predictors of Psychological Adjustment in Early Placed Adopted Children with Lesbian, Gay, and Heterosexual Parents, and Cambridge University Centre for Family Research - I've Got Two Dads and They Adopted Me. You can look up the methods used yourself.

The bottom line is this: I can find a hundred reports to support gay marriage and you will never change your mind anyway because you don't want to believe them. It doesn't matter. Gay marriage is coming no matter what. The writing is on the wall. It's just a matter of time.

Smile.

Melbourne University in Australia: Australian Study of Child Health in Same-Sex Families:

Who are the study participants?

For this study we will be working with same-sex attracted parents in order to develop a complete picture of the health and wellbeing of their children. We will also be working with children over the age of 10 years who have same-sex attracted parents.

How is information collected?

The study will begin by inviting participants to complete a questionnaire. The questionnaire will be available online or can be sent by mail for those who might prefer this.

Following the initial questionnaire some participants will be invited to take part in more in depth interviews to help us create a more detailed picture of child health and wellbeing.

A questionnaire?

(Such as, "Do you molest your child?" ~ If you answer yes, you wil be arrested...)

No comparison group?

No long term evaluation?

Too funny cuz...

However, that is the typical case with these studies. At least that is the findings of a study of those studies...

Perhaps YOU can find a legit one like I asked???

Marriage is a miraculous union of two genders,
a union so profound,
it is described as the union of Mars and Venus.
It reunites humanity to the roots of life,
while at the very same time
hosting the best and natural
birth place of future human life.
It is the blend of masculinity and femininity.
The wisdom of logic and intuition united.
Strength and delicacy perfectly balanced.
Protection and nurture combined as one.
A complimentary merging that multiplies the unbiased blend of humanity's genders.

A ss couple cannot equate to a single one of these distinctions.

Actually you haven't won anything. Right now you are just getting your way, getting people to believe that a sinful life is ok but in the end you will have lost and lost big. So enjoy it while you still can.

Hunty, We've already won. If your piece of shit poem makes you feel all warm and wet, like peeing yourself, then keep repeating it.
