Gay adoption

So, should gay couples (same-sex couples) be allowed to adopt children?

Absolutely.

What the hell's the difference?

As long as the parents are loving, I don't care. The fact is that there are too many children in this country (let alone others) that need to be adopted for us to eliminate thousands of eligible couples based on their sexual orientation.
Not only is it discrimination, but it leaves the kids in a ****ty, failing, overloaded foster care system.

And before it happens, let it be said that I will flame the first person who says that the kids will turn gay, or the kids will be corrupted.

FYI.

This is why I love you, Ender.

To be honest, though, I'm pretty undecided on this issue. Part of me wants to say that gays deserve the same rights (and they do) and that there are so many children who could benefit from going to loving homes, and yet a part of me also believes that every child benefits from having a father figure and a mother figure. Take, for example, boys who are raised by single mothers. Research shows these boys don't do as well as children with both parents or even single fathers. But what exactly is the cause? Is it that there's no father figure, or is it because of the reason there is no father figure?

So I need to be educated a bit more before I can give a good opinion on the matter.

Both sides, that's your cue.

Like I said, I don't believe in it morally. Legally, however, they're entitled to it.

I think they should definitely be allowed to adopt kids.

If they really want a kid, adopting would be good for them and the kid. The kid would have a family, and the parents would have a kid. Just because you're gay does not mean you're unfit to be a parent.

I don't see why they shouldn't be allowed to adopt. Many gay people would make much better parents than some straight couples out there... As long as a child has two parents to love and nurture it, I don't see the problem. ^.^

Your gay love for me aside, maybe the reason that single mother-raised children do poorly is because there is only one parent.
Should we ban single people from adoption? (actually, this was done in one of the southern states recently, where no unmarried person could adopt a child, and both caring straight single people and gay couples suffered from this stupid ruling)
I think a caring couple, whether they be straight or gay, will be well equipped enough to deal with any child.
Besides, with the fathers many people have, I'm sure a lot of people wish they had two moms.

That's all that really needs to be said.
I wish breeders needed to get a background check and psych profile to be able to have kids.
I see way too many idiot parents out there. I also tend to think that people who go through the grueling and expensive process of adoption aren't going to mistreat or f*ck up their kids...
