    I wonder about that.

I want to adopt and raise a straight daughter who likes males" that would be incredibly awkward and weird :p The parents/kids sexuality should never once come up or be a part of the adoption process basically.
    I would agree that the parents sexuality AND that influence on their kids should never come up or be part of the adoption process.

    OK ... I wonder about the title of the thread. If Justice Scalia is worthy of his position, he wouldn't just be wondering about it, he would be looking at the research, and specifically - properly conducted research.

    Once he had done that, he would be in a position to weigh up whether, all things considered, same sex parents were in fact more harmful to children than any other subset of parents, and he probably wouldn't be wondering about it any more.

    He might miss something. That's why we have the adversarial process. Both sides, presenting the best case they can find for their side. His saying "I wonder" indicates he hasn't yet made up his mind. If he said anything saying he already believed one way or another, before the case is presented, he would be asked to remove himself.

    Talking about wondering...

    How would a same sex couple go about educating their children about sex??

    When the said child had only witnessed homosexuality??

    interesting question.....

    Do you have kids?


    If so, do you have heterosexual sex in front of them?

    I never did in front of mine, and I thought that was normal. the gay parents I have known also seem to think that it is normal not to have sex in front of your children.

    Are you saying it isn't?

    If so ... that doesn't explain how I ever became a grandmother....

    Err no..I have never had sex in front of my children..or any child..

    But children will ask questions..like why don't I have a man and a woman as my parents??

    Maybe I worded my post wrongly..

    If a child has 2 male parents..or 2 female parents..

    Are these people going to extoll the benefits of heterosexual sex..

    Or other??

    Don't know. I don't know that telling the kids about the birds and the bees is really about extolling the benefits of heterosexual sex ... it is about providing factual information. Along with that is of course a discussion about the non sexual aspects of relationships, and how important it is to care deeply (the word love comes to mind) about someone you want to be close to.

    love, respect and caring would apply regardless of whether it is a gay or straight relationship.

    most parents (myself included) don't outline the karma sutra when talking to their kids about sex, but kids still seem to figure out that sex involves a lot more than the missionary position.

    So..you think a child who has been bought up..by a male gay couple..will not have e.g. mixed with their gay friends..

    Watched loving exchanges between them...( and no Mws..not talking about sex here!)

    Will not be affected by their homosexuality??
