I've got a university account. Just read this. Kids seem to be in alright hands with gay parents.

I have no doubt about it. Before being a homosexual ever came to be an issue in the 60s and todate, kids were being raised by every sexual orientation existing and then some. legally Married, self-married, same sex, polygamy, divorced, separated, homosexual, cross dresser, heterosexual, bisexual, grandparents, uncle and aunt, cousins, siblings and guardians, etc. That's fact. The only kids that ever suffered abuse were kids that had one or more abusive parents/guardians. A sexual orientation no more promotes child abuse than getting married promotes divorce. To abuse another (speaking of people with sound thinking) is a choice.

Yes. This is key.

Why, do you actually KNOW any kids of gay parents who contradict this research?

Absolutely and this kind of crap so called research by homosexuals for homosexuals is nothing more than propaganda wrapped up to look like research.

Tell me about them.

How many families like this do you know? Do they live close to you? What are their family lives like? What are their various family structures? How much do you interact with these families, and in what ways? Are you on friendly or unfriendly terms with these families? How often do you interact with just their children? How old are the children? How long have the children lived in these homes? Do the children tell you personally that their home lives are bad in any way? Have you personally observed any abuse or crimes in their homes? Have you notified anyone (police, CPS) of any possible wrong-doing? Do you have any information on the children's school performance? Do you know any adults who were raised by same-sex couples? Do you have any of this information about them?

If you're able to answer these questions quickly, I'll be more likely to believe you (the idea being that you shouldn't take much time which would allow you to invent answers). But I don't even know any same-sex families raising children, myself. I wonder what circles you travel in, that brings you into such frequent contact with families like these.

What you assert here would require that homosexuals be the majority of the population.

Our population is growing massively so your assertion is a failure before you even made it.

Not enough gay people to adopt that many. Heterosexuals breed like freaking rabbits in heat 365 days of the year.

Why would these heterosexual parents need to do that, when there are millions of kids in the system, that were already failed by their heterosexual parents?

That sort of what my point, you stole my point! J/K ....

But yeah, there are millions of kids who's heterosexual parents have failed them in the system already, most are forgotten, discarded, and ignored by the bigots. Yet when a loving couple, same sex or not, wants to adopt they are always trying to find stupid reasons to deny these kids a truly loving home. If heteros were so good at taking care of kids, there would be no need for adoption at all.

I don't hate kids of gay parents I feel sorry for them.

It's not the kids fault that their parent(s) are screwed up. They are innocent victims of the gay lifestyle.

I'm pretty sure the feeling is pretty much mutual, you are one sorry example of humanity for these kids to have to grow up with.

There is no such thing as the "gay lifestyle", and you know it. But still you like to stir up such silliness.

And there is no need to feel sorry for any child who is wanted, loved, and raised to be a caring, sensible, and productive citizen. If only more heterosexuals did the same.

What percentage of children are born out of wedlock in this country, and what percentage of women are on birth control to avoid the unwanted consequences of irresponsible fornication?

For someone who isn't gay, you really seem to know you're stuff. Did you get your doctorate inside a truck-stop bathroom, or did it come with your last box of lucky charms?
