    Re: Should Homosexuals be allowed to adopt?

    Should Homosexuals have the same rights as other human beings? No.

    For many reasons, I cannot justify that answer. Of course they should be allowed to adopt. If your afraid that they are gonna make their children gay, than your essentially thinking that being gay is wrong, which is another problem entirely. If your worried about the child being insecure, what child isn't insecure. The idea that gay parents would provide a bad example is the assumption that the standard male/female parents is awesome and always works. Everyone knows that no parents are perfect, and when all is said and done its more important that your parents loved and supported you as oppose to whether or not your manly dad taught you how to throw a football.

    Why is there a need to worry if we start letting homosexual couples adopt kids?

    So should we start worrying if Caucasian couples start adopting African American children? Or vise versa?

    No. It has already been in progress. And humanity is still the same as it was way back when, am I wrong? We haven't been wiped off the face of the Earth.

    If they are married to someone of the opposite sex, sure.

    It's not about discrimination no matter what people tell you. It's about what is best for the children. Adoption isn't a right, it's a privilege. Saying they are being discriminated against because they don't fit guidelines based on the children's NEEDS is like saying that someone living in poverty is being discriminated against because they don't meet the income standards.


    @The White Wolf: yes there are people freaking out because whites have been allowed to adopt black orphans. That, unlike the other, is discrimination.

    How is it not discrimation? Most are not thinking about the needs of the children. They're thinking.. "Ew. Homosexuals. They shouldn't be allowed to adopt kids, that's just wrong." And yes, children have needs. But there are a whole lot of them being raised without a mother, or a father. That's just how it's been in the past few generations. Single parents all over the place. Just because the kid might grow up with two moms, or two dads.. at least there is that sense of ful-fillment and fullness.

Saying they are being discriminated against because they don't fit guidelines based on the children's NEEDS is like saying that someone living in poverty is being discriminated against because they don't meet the income standards.
    Hm....that's a bit of an odd answer (about being married to opposite sex). Is that just so that there's an actual 'mother' or 'father' figure for the child? That's a bit of a Catch-22...namely because of 'married to opposite sex', but also because is it would suggest that being gay isn't the problem, only the parental figure debate. That would be saying that it's okay to be a gay parent, as long as the appearance of a straight family is there.....which like I said would make being gay not the problem, but the parental figure debate.

    Which would then bring up arguments concerning 'single parent' adoption, as it also challenges the parental figure debate (only having one mom, or one dad)....

    From Childwelfare.gov
    In 1970, if you had gone to an adoption agency as a single person and applied for a child, you would have, unfortunately, been turned down—it just wasn't done. In fact, in some States, there were laws against single parent adoption. Now, thousands of children in the United States and other countries are living with single men and women who have chosen to become parents and who have been given the opportunity to provide a loving permanent home for a child
    So if you're saying it's only about presenting the appearance of a straight family, then it would rule out single parent adoption, because there would be only one parent, which would not be a 'mom/dad' family, nor would it create the appearance of such a family.

    I don't think ANYONE could possibly argue that adoption isn't a right...it's most definately a privilege...that's absolutely 100&#37; correct. But I think if a couple is going to absolutely love, care for, and protect the child, and teach the child properly, I don't see having gay parent adoption as being a bad thing. If they treat the child like any good parent would, then I don't think sexuality should be a problem factor.

    I would certainly trust the gay people I know with a kid, and wouldn't worry about them.

    However, from the same website as the other quote:

    Despite the greater acceptance of single parent adoption, the traditional view of parenting, that a child needs a mother and a father for healthy growth and development, still exists. Mental health experts say that the "ideal" is to place a child in a two-parent home with a mother and father who are compatible and loving. However, there are many children for whom this "ideal" is not possible and many single people who feel that such bias is unfair.
    So even though single parent adoption is available, it still has a stigma to it because of not providing a 'mother'-'father' situation. Until this debate fully unfolds in society, where it's decided if single parent adoption is perfectly okay (where all adoption agencies have no problems with it), then I think that the gay adoption debate is overstepping that one, which isn't fair for single parents who want to adopt.

    Also, one of the barriers of single parent adoption is income, because a single person will make far less than a married working couple, and be working....but a gay couple could have the around the same income as a straight couple....though it leads right back into the mother-father debate.


    So I'll say that at some point, I think gay parents who will treat their child like a loving family would, should be allowed to adopt. But I think the issue of single parent adoption HAS TO be approached and completely figured out by child health experts, etc (either fully accepted, or not accepted). Until that one is figured out, I don't think the gay adoption debate can, or should, go ahead. Because that would be unfair for single parent adoption. If the gay adoption debate is allowed before single parent adoption is fully worked out, then it would be saying that the only thing holding single parents back would be income, and not the mother-father debate.

    Arrianna's right, that it's not discrimination, because the same rules apply to everyone, which is why it can be hard to get approval for single parent adoption, due to the mother-father family unit debate. The needs of the child HAVE to come before the individual person, so until single parent adoption is fully cleared up by medical experts and adoption agencies, I don't think the gay adoption debate should go forward. Like I said, it would be unfair to single parents if gay adoption suddenly jumps ahead. Depending on how that turns out could then determine whether gay adoption as allowed or not.
