THEY prove you wrong.
At least start with the facts.
Talk in 15 or 20 years. When these children grow up we will see how screwed up they are.

Don't celebrate too soon. Your opposition to "gay days" makes me consider going there just to make out in front of a hetero family and watch them freak out.
You are a homosexual pedophile deviant. You want to make out in front of children with your gay partner at disney world. Seek medical help for your brain disease before it is too late.

There are already adults who were raised by same-sex parents. They said they're just fine, thanks for asking.

No, I just like taunting the anti-gays.

Some gays 'seem' normal. What's your point?
Yourself as an object example, perhaps?

Your fears and imaginary suppositions are only evidence that you are fearful and driven by your imaginings.

We have thousands of examples to the contrary, yet you prefer your fears and imaginings to these very real people.

There's a term for that ... nuts.

From the report ...

" ... The 2000 U.S. census estimated that 163,879 households with children were headed by same-sex couples ... "

and

" ... Additionally, the census fails to count the perhaps millions of families where a single gay parent heads the household ... "

Just for starters.

From the report:
The young turks were all psychiatrists, all members of the APA and all liberal-minded easterners who had decided to reform the American Psychiatric Association from the inside. Specifically they had decided to replace all the grey-haired conservatives who ran the organization with a new breed of psychiatrist; more sensitive to the social issues of the day with liberal opinions on Kent State, Vietnam, feminism. They figured that once they got this new breed into office they could fundamentally transform American psychiatry. And one of the things this group was keen to transform was American psychiatry’s approach to homosexuality.

No child is ever happy or healthy being raised by homosexual perverts.

They are not "fine". They have been shown examples of unacceptable lifestyles.

Kind of meaningless. You say you're just fine.

YOU said to ask the kids, so I asked.

Not surprising you don't accept their answer either because it goes against your preconceived (i.e. prejudicial) beliefs.

Not meaningless at all. Who are we supposed to believe, you anti-gay bigots? Or the people who were actually raised by same-sex parents?

See, if you think you're just fine, they probably think they are too. You aren't qualified to judge how 'just fine' anyone is. Your opinion is meaningless. I'm not saying they turn out great or they turn out badly. I'm saying they were placed in a situation they couldn't control. A situation I wouldn't want to be put in if I were a child.

Just as you aren't qualified to judge how they are either. You probably think you're fine as a raging homophobic bigot, but we all know what a hateful person you really are.

It's not my opinion I'm referring to, it's THEIR OWN opinion. In addition, every major medical/psychological/pediatri c organization agrees that kids raised by same-sex couples turn out no different than anyone else.

EVERY child is placed in a situation they can't control either by birth, adoption, divorce, etc.

Careful there, crosspatch.
