Parents' Sexuality Influences Adoption Choices

There are 6 comments on the gay_blog.blogspot.com story from Apr 2, 2009, titled Parents' Sexuality Influences Adoption Choices. In it, gay_blog.blogspot.com reports that:

A couple's sexual orientation determines whether or not they prefer to adopt a boy or a girl. Gay men are more likely to have a gender preference for their adopted child whereas heterosexual men are the least likely. What's more, couples in heterosexual relationships are more likely to prefer girls than people in same-gender relationships, according to Dr. Abbie Goldberg from Clark University in the US. These couples also have very different reasons for their preferences, depending on their sexuality. These findings, from the first study to compare the child gender preferences of prospective adoptive parents according to their sexuality, are published online in Springer's journal Sex Roles.

Interesting how, when giving their reasons for preferring a boy or girl, gay and lesbian couples seem more concerned with what's best for the child, while straight couples make the choice based more on the own self-interest.

While I support gay rights...that assumption seems a bit silly to me.

Shame!

Perverted Sex, Sex, Sex, that's all you people seem to think about.

Just because of the perversions of a few thousand doesn't mean that just because gay men predominantly prefer to parent little innocent boys, doesn't mean that they prefer boys just because they want to have sex with them. They have honest & wholesome desires too, just like heterosexuals do, not just because they make excellent sex toys, so get your minds out of the gutter!

I honestly don't know what I was thinking when I wrote the above post (#1). It was a silly and untrue statement. Please disregard it; It's 4 years old anyway.
