    I don't claim to, but I think I'm making clear why you few might be doubted.

    Why is this so hard to understand, exactly? Small children need some level of stability and a shocking change like this could very easily cause them issues. I know who I was back then well enough to know it would have affected me poorly.

    I suggest that isn't where stability comes from. You can do everything "normal" and lack stability. Stability for children comes in knowing your parents love you and will be honest with you, tackling whatever comes up together. It isn't in avoiding the troubles life presents.

    Really? So you think kids won't be affected by one of their parents changing drastically?

    Again, they will get through it rather well if handled well by a parent who loves them.

    The nature of homosexuality in the US currently is that gay men, in particular, usually don't have children and feel that their sexual identity precludes that. It does not, and if they don't have children their parents will, as a general rule, be disappointed at best. There is no way of getting around that simple fact of human nature. Homosexuality will not ever really be regarded as normal or good or OK as long as gay men allow it to interfere with their own procreation.

    Results: Children in the preschool years were rated as adapting best to the transition, both initially and long-term. Adults also were able to adapt well, so long as the level of conflict between parents was low. Adolescents had the most difficult time adapting to a parental transition. The level of family conflict worsened the child's adaptation across all developmental levels. The therapists delineated both risk and protective factors for children during such a situation.

    Where are your sources for your first claim? I'm showing ~22% in 2004. This is opposed to the 65% of males who identified as having a biological child. Would you expect them to, considering there are - what - 21 states that allow homosexual adoption? Why do you say homosexuality will never be regarded as good? Why does it have to be good (or bad)? Can't it just be? And, yes, homosexuality does have evolutionary advantages (or dispute that theory?). For example, see Ciani's work regarding fecundity.

    Why can't people change? Most of our attitudes towards gender and what's acceptable are just constructs anyway.

    I can put on a suit, it doesn't make me a man. If you just put on a dress, you're a man in a dress. To be seen as a woman involves doing a lot more than dresses, make up, and long hair. If she is living and being treated as a woman, then she knows what its like in society as a woman. I'll accept her as a woman.
