    if u listened to most people then homo/transexuals are not even human.

    thie people that think THIS are the ones that aren't human. your sexual orientation has no bearing on your ability to raise a child. Studies show that only 1% of children raised in gay homes are gay, and they are 98% less likely to commit violent crime than other children.

    there aren't enough gay parents (in my oppinion) to give these stats much thought, but it is still worth a second look

    thanks to zyta for the sick sig and avy!

    most gay parents are more likely to keep their child out of bad situations.

    I don’t really have a problem if a person who is a lesbian, homosexual or transsexual decides that they want to become a parent. If their heart is in the right place and act like good and responsible adult than that’s great!

    My only problem is the potential ridicule the child would receive from its peers. Homosexual parents or anything of the sort is simply not the norm nor will it ever likely be. That difference will be a source of ridicule and I think a couple of this nature should seriously consider that before having a child. Even though you may feel like you would a good parent you can’t control what other people say. Are you willing to handle the ridicule that the child is bound to receive?

    The same thing can be said about having a young boy who has not been circumcised, yet few people would say that this is a valid reason not to have a child. And 50 years ago, the same thing was being said about inter-racial marriages... and 100 years ago, they were saying the same thing about inter-faith marriages... and 200 years ago, they were saying the same thing between different nationalities...

    I think that if those of alternative lifestyles want children then they should be able to have them. I used to go to Paganfests (till the ones I went to turned more into party central than religious events) and there are a lot of people who are gay/lesbian/trisexual that have kids there. Almost all of those kids were better behaved than many of the others roaming around that were camped near me. So by all means, if you want kids, go for it.

    True but if the child and parent can make the "right" decision, there should be less problem for the child to grow up a normal kid with friends and there will be some fight with the child and parent on some topic but it would be better than living on the street and be a bum asking for money from other people or stealing from minor store just to live
