And I can tell you stories of thousands of kids who had straight parents, and were in therapy for different reasons including being emotionally and/or physically abused by their parents. They too were embarrassed by their parents, as most teens tend to be. I can also tell you about both gay and straight kids who had gay foster and adoptive parents and were happy to have parents who loved and cared for them.<quoted text>
So I guess all these years we have all been just hoodwinked in thinking that parents should be a man and woman. Wow! Who would have thought that?
I have known two different sets of kids being raised by ssm. In both cases the children were embarresed of their parents and would not mention the parents on their on. Two of the three children (one from each,) were in theropy for manic depression and attention deficit.
Now I'm not a psychologist, but this don't look good.
Now this is fact!
Same sex couples have been raising children throughout history. Remember, many women died during childbirth, and parents died from flu, plague, wars, etc. It was common for other family members or community members to take over the care of the children. Gay people raising kids is nothing new.
"The results of more than a century of anthropological research on households, kinship relationships, and families, across cultures and through time, provide no support whatsoever for the view that either civilization or viable social orders depend upon marriage as an exclusively heterosexual institution. Rather, anthropological research supports the conclusion that a vast array of family types, including families built upon same-sex partnerships, can contribute to stable and humane societies."
