    Daddy, Papa and Me: do you agree with?

    Is it fine if a child instead of mom and dad has two dads while a big lot of politically correct secular humanists want to sell us such communities as a full normal "modern" families?
    Moreover, it is very difficult to believe that children of such "families" will growing up as straight kids.Or maybe I am wrong, maybe only such families will exist in liberal politically correct future and all conservative families will be prohibited as "too hateful" per law.

    Also, what do you think about, maybe somebody can additional explain how daddies and pappies will produce children, also, please vote and correct me, if I am wrong.

    BTW what is about the acceptance of such children in schools or among those from straight families?

    I will put it this way. I don't agree with it personally but two parents there all the time can be and is better than just one and that is what most children including me and now my five month daughter deals with as I try to work things out with her mother. Of course I am there as much as I can be but it is always better to have both parents as it is better and easier on everyone.

    Sure. As long as the child is in a loving home with parents who will nurture and support him or her, I fail to see the problem. I mean, I have two dads (a step dad and a real dad) and some would argue I came out ok.

    Moreover, it is very difficult to believe that children of such "families" will growing up as straight kids.Or maybe I am wrong, maybe only such families will exist in liberal politically correct future and all conservative families will be prohibited as "too hateful" per law.
    I don't see why it matters if the kid grows up straight or gay, as long as they grow up happy and loved. Though, there is a lot of science pointing to homosexuality being rooted in biological causes like hormone levels in the mother, rather than learned behavior. And straight families have homosexual kids, so I don't see why it can't go both ways. I do have to say though, your conspiracy theory here is just ridiculous.

    Also, what do you think about, maybe somebody can additional explain how daddies and pappies will produce children, also, please vote and correct me, if I am wrong.
    Well when a daddy and a pappy love each other VERY much, they go to a magical place called an adoption agency... Jokes aside, it isn't unheard of for someone to have been repressing their sexuality and to only come out of the closet in middle age, after having had a failed hetero marriage (it's happened to a few people I know.) Though, judging by the cover of the book, I suspect the child was adopted.

    BTW what is about the acceptance of such children in schools or among those from straight families?
    Kids are going to find something to tease you about. It might be how you talk, it might be your size, it might be that you have two dads. But i don't see why people should change what they do because of teasing and prejudice.

    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    They are families. Period. What else are they?

    Moreover, it is very difficult to believe that children of such "families" will growing up as straight kids.
    I, and every other gay person I know, was raised by a heterosexual couple one of whom was quite anti-gay, but I came out gay. Why would the kids of gay parents be more likely to mirror their parents' sexual orientation than I was? Do you think gay parents are taught fiendish indoctrination skills?

    BTW what is about the acceptance of such children in schools or among those from straight families?
    It varies from school to school. Some schools these days have very good policies in place to prevent bullying. Acceptance you can't legislate for, but there are many issues of personal circumstance that other kids can pick on, and they always will. That's life.

    Re: Daddy, Papa and Me: do you agree with?

    There seems to be few cases where two guys adopt a child, I hear more about two women adopting or doing artificial insemination and one carries the child. What I have read from interiews with adult children who grew up in those families is very positive. They felt loved, they enjoyed a stable family, and they love both parents. The kids don't end up as gay kids. I go by results and what the kid says based on his/her actual experience. It works.

    I have linked to the stats a few times, too busy right now to dig them up again, but IIRC, about 1/3 of gay male couples do adopt or would like to adopt.

    Edit: OK, I did look up the source: http://www3.law.ucla.edu/williamsins...tionReport.pdf

    • More than one in three lesbians have given birth and one in six gay men have fathered or adopted a child.
    • More than half of gay men and 41 percent of lesbians want to have a child.
    • An estimated two million GLB people are interested in adopting.

    Well - if a gay child can be raised by two straight parents then why can't two gay parents raise a straight child? It's not an issue of childhood exposure - it's not as if they were walking on the beech one day and tripped and suddenly fell down with gay.

    Studies have shown that a children raised by gay parents are not any more likely to be gay themselves than children raised by straight parents. As well, they show no abnormalities or ill-effects from the experience.
