There is no reason why same sex parents can't raise a child. They can provide a loving environment.

I believe it would end up being very awkward for the child as they get older. How would that child understand a normal relationship?

How is being a gay couple different from any other relationship? I have been around many gay parents other the what goes on in the bedroom everything is the same.

The same way that kids raised by heterosexuals understand a normal gay relationship.

Unless you are trying to boil parenting and relationships down to sex.

No child, hopefully, EVER sees that modeled by any parent, gay or straight.

But they DO see how one treats a spouse, how one shows love and commitment. How a parent handles adversity. How they show love to a child.

ALL of the things that go into a normal relationship.
