Good point, how do they get *any* information on how gays do as adoptive parents if they're not even allowed to adopt? They should be allowed to because I think the matter is important enough to get the information. If it's found that gays make good parents, let them adopt.

Well, if Adam and Eve are doing such a bang up job at parenting, why are there so many kids who are unloved, abused and in need of good homes?

well well well

hello there Diamond Dave





in my opinion ,there so many kids without parents , no guidance , lots of monsters around , so if a gay couple wants to adopt , have a real family , no problem at all , it's better for everyone , morals for people , less chance that kid would end up on the street with junkies and homeless people
parenthood , love , kindness , life values
those things are important to promote and spread

Adam and Eve's son killed his brother.

Good parenting.

. Exactly. Well said.

I agree with indra, though, one would think that sort of thing should be pretty obvious without people having to do studies on the topic to prove it even more.

Also...

I know kids from hetero marriages with really fucked up "expectations."
Couldn't be more true. I never understood why you have drivinglessons and such but can make children whenever you like without any proof of being able to raise it with love care and respect. How many children out there who are being abused by soms idiot trash dad or drunk mom...I'm all for gay couples being able to adopt a child.
