In truth, a child usually does best when raised by their biological mother and father. Does this mean a child cannot do just as well with two same sex parents? No. Certain same sex families can raise children just as well. Does this mean opposite sex parents are inherently better equipped to raise children? No. Some opposite sex families are abusive, impoverished, are too young, or may have any number of factors that preclude them from being effective at raising children.
There are more variables to raising children than simply the sex of the parents. There is no evidence to indicate that a child raised by an opposite sex couple with a high income, no abuse, and an adequate age is at any significant advantage or disadvantage to a child raised by a comparable same sex couple.
What's with this stuff about child rearing? It has absolutely no relevance to the issue of same sex marriage.

Frankly I don't understand why childless gays are lining up to surrender their right to privacy to Big-Bro when there is no reason for the state to do so.
I mean they say it's about rights, but what they're doing is surrendering rights. It makes no sense.
Most of the laws regarding marriage regard property transfer and legal authority and responsibility of said children, so 99% of the time your tax money isn't even an issue at all.
