What the hell is "gay adoption"?

Are gays being adopted??

Do we call it "straight adoption" when straight people adopt?

Do we call it "black adoption" when black people adopt?

More lazy linguistics.

No more so than straight marriage, whatever that is.

What's confusing? To grow up correctly, children need a mother and father. Two normal parents. It's as simple as that.

"Extensive data available from more than 30 years of research reveal that children raised by gay and lesbian parents have demonstrated resilience with regard to social, psychological, and sexual health despite economic and legal disparities and social stigma. 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 the sexual orientation of their parents.

Lack of opportunity for same-gender couples to marry adds to familiesÂ’ stress, which affects the health and welfare of all household members. Because marriage strengthens families and, in so doing, benefits childrenÂ’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."

It is every childs basic human right to be endowed with a 'female' mother for nurturing, commpassion, and motherly bonding during the childs most indelible years of their lives. They are deliberately depraving children of the balanced structure as nature suggests in virtually all living species. I have yet to see a snyper shit out a child and I'm sure I never will.
Nature forbids it.
Wow, you are dumb.
Is adoption legal?
Is it legal for single parents to adopt?
Is divorce illegal?
Do you have any proof whatsoever that traditional families produce better outcomes?
Do you have any proof whatsoever that you are remotely competent or rational?

...... The facts are the best conditions for any child for parenthood is guess what? A female mother and a male father, hands down. For evidence one only needs to review human history..........
And yet gay folks are raising wonderful kids by the thousands.

THEY prove you wrong.

At least start with the facts.

So love, commitment, support, romance, joy, shared burdens, raising kids, and family life are "perversions"?

I would hate to look into your mind and see the dark things inside. How do you live with them?

John Mccain given over 700,000 dollars the last six years by aipac. We used to call that bribery.
Superpacs too.
I hope they never come back, send aipac "HOME" with their dual citizenry.

I know two gay men who have been together for over 25 years. They adopted and raised 3 great kids all who are straight not gay all who are collge kids all who worked hard and were involved in local charities and helped there parents run there local garden and nursery business..

No confusion and these kids had and have it much better then most of the straight local kids who parents are racist bigoted church goers.

Of course not, because well raised children are never confused as to who loves then, supports them, and are raising them. They know their parents, and they know they are loved.

YOU are confused as to what a parent's role is in a child's life, and you have issues with things your mind can't quite grasp, but I can assure you that children don't share your problems.

The sort of confusion and willful ignorance that you experience has to be carefully taught - it doesn't come naturally.

You don't think Junior will be confused when he sees Daddy #1 buttf*cking Daddy #2? Don't you think Junior might be a little confused when both daddies make him suck their d!cks?
