I've heard multiple opinions on this so I'm curious. Do you think same sex couples should raise children (if they want them of course)

Really it's up to the couple ^^

But if they want to, then I say go ahead! I personally don't think it matters whether it's maleXfemale, femaleXfemale or maleXmale. If they want a child, they can do what they wish C: as long as they're prepared for the hard work that's needed for it, then there's nothing wrong.

Really, all a child needs is a safe environment and people to love them (as well as the obvious necessities :P). If the couple supplies these to their child, then I feel that they're perfectly allowed C:


I could just be saying this, though, since I've always wanted to have children, and am sticking up for homosexuals :'D I guess we'll never know x)


But Bienie, are you trying to tell us something...?

:'D

Well, I have to agree with everything you said :XD:

Though as for the "are you trying to tell us something" I never wanted to have children and neither does my girlfriend, so... :')

Yeah sure, of course, I don't see why it shouldn't be done :dummy:

But sadly, some people are assholes and would just love to ruin this child or his/her parents because of this :noes:

my opinion is complicated, i guess, but overall i say yes. they'd probably make way better parents than some of the straight people who accidentally have kids or have them and then don't want them or choose to abuse them and etc. i'm not against same sex couples at all, to me it doesn't matter if someone likes guys or girls, i'm not going to judge someone for wanting to be with the same sex because it doesn't affect me and i think that same sex couples would actually promote people to not be so grossed out or offended by gays/lesbians/bis/whatever else and the kids wouldn't think it was weird but could have their own sexuality and their parents wouldn't judge, where usually if you have straight parents they're going to judge you harshly if you even think about liking the same sex. some parents have even kicked them out for not being straight and it's horrible.

but i also think it might be hard on the kid, because of so many people being against same sex marriage and couples, (i'm not, i don't mind it) but the kid might get bullied or teased if their classmates found out, and worse, they might think that being gay is wrong. so i don't know, because how society is now people might be harsh on them, and how cruel kids are in school it might affect their kid on how they see homosexual (sorry i don't mean to use any offending terms, i don't really call anyone homos or anything because if i talk to someone i don't really need to know or be in their business about their sexuality, so i don't know if what i'm saying is offensive or not aa) people and make them not like their parents or not want to be around them. idk but i guess basically i fear if someone chose to do that, with how people are now not accepting same sex couples even with them being legal, that their lives would be harder because of how cruel someone who is against it would treat them.

I think your opinion is understandable, it's a shame we live in such a hateful world though! I think it's kind of bad that the opinion of outsiders can play such a big role in deciding on whether to get a child or not.
/extremely short reply compared to your comment, ff sorry. But I guess I agree with most of your points here :'D

On a side note, homosexual is not an offending term, no worries :P It's the correct term after all! Offending would be something like faggots, but gay/homosexual are perfectly useable.

Haha, i find it ridiculous how close minded some people can be, if you take care of the kids, then by all means you should be aloud to have them, without the meaningless gender identification that the world is pushed around.

I think they could and should be given so problem if they wanted to. In my opinion, gender doesn't affect love in any way and what choices they'd want to make.
Some people oppose the idea saying it's bad as their kid could get bullied,, (¬‿¬) but people need to let their kids know to keep their rude opinions to themselves

Many kids get bullied nowadays, but I think we should teach our kids how to handle bullying and to be more tolerant of others rather than not get children.
But yea, true :P

To be honest, I don't really understand why gender is such a big deal. If people want to have children, why not? The nice thing about same-sex is that you have to adopt a child from somewhere, and adoption is always a good thing in my opinion. ^^

I feel like some people just get so shocked when they hear you don't want to follow those normal standards of building a family. My dad actually thinks there is something wrong with me because I don't want to have children and I don't really want a husband either (I'm asexual, and I don't really get attracted to people more than just friends... I'm also kind of afraid of babies, which for some reason creep me out -- lol).

But yeah, I really don't see what the issue is. I actually feel like it's beneficial for same-sex couples to have children, because there are so many kids out there in need a family, so we could use more couples that are willing to adopt them. :>

Gender really shouldn't make a difference, in my opinion. If couples want to raise children they should be able to, regardless of their sexes -- and on the contrary, if people don't want to raise a family and have children, then they shouldn't have to feel obligated to do that either. ~

That, or something like sperm donors. Adoption IS a good thing, sadly straight couples will always get priority on same sex couples with the same capacity to raise a child.

People seem to be like that, yes. But I don't see what's wrong with not wanting children or a husband/wife really! If you want it, fine, if you don't, fine too. No one's business but yours :3

And exactly. ^^

Honestly, I don't know why they should not raise kids if they want to. 
There's no reason to think they can't do it. 
Let's just think of all those straight couples with an abusive parent, and it's easy to say that the kids would be happier with two mothers or two fathers instead of a fucked up but "normal" (because that's the word I hear everywhere) family !
And after all the fights to have the right to rise a baby, I think they could be.. maybe not "better" parents, but they'd give all they have to be the best for their kids.
So I totally think same sex couples should rise children if they want to <3

I had a friend when I was a kid, who had two mothers, and I talked to him a year ago : He grew up as an intelligent and well-educated young man, and he's a future doctor ! ^^ So I don't understand why I hear people saying that same sex couple will fail at raising kids ~

Yes, I agree with everything you said there :3

Or that the kids will be gay. Why would that matter anyway?

I don't think the sexuality of their parents would really make them gay. That boy I'm talking about is heterosexual and I had a mom and dad and I'm bisexual (and my biological father HATES gays). So it's just stupid excuses to try to make believe that same sex couples are wrong.
