Assume you have to give up a baby for adoption and your options are two couples who are both loving and exceptional. One couple is a husband and wife, and the other is a husband and husband. Who y'all give the baby to?
if they're both truly equal, then i don't think it would matter.
I finally posted my first question if anyone would like to follow. ????
Follow me too bro. :P
The gay couple, because I know it will be far easier for the straight couple to adopt.
I would want to help them build they're family while so many others are against it; I can't imagine how difficult that would be. Also, gay couples are more likely to understand what it's like to be abused, and not abuse as a result.
Their*... I should type more carefully.
Same answer - same reason
Straight so the child grows up hopefully normal.
What makes children of gay couples grow up abnormally?
I said straight because I believe it's beneficial for a child to have a consistent, loving male and female influence in his/her life.
Seriously. What's a legitimate reason as to why gay couples are inferior at child raising?
Or is it just ignorant prejudice?
The question is a realistic possibility. If you have two choices, then what would you go with. No right or wrong answer. Just instinctive preference
I'm not asking your question. I'm asking on based off of the ignorant comments.
There's an interesting article in the Atlantic about why gay couples are often more successful than heterosexual couples.
I think it would really depend on both couples personally.If either couple were satanists, I would not place a child there. I do think it's more beneficial for a child to have a parent of both genders, but it really depend on many other circumstances
Gay couples are statistically far less likely to abuse their children.
Straight. I would never willingly place my child in a strongly homosexual environment.
Will the voodoo magic turn them gay?
Because I believe homosexuality to be immoral. I would no sooner place them with homosexuals than I would with thieves, chronic liars, adulterers, alcoholics, or any other person prone to vices.
Gay couple. They are more likely not religious and not a member of the tea party.
That's precisely why I would place mine with the straight couple.
I don't agree with your decision but I applaud you on thinking it out.
Straight. Don't need corrupted morals
Their morals are just different than yours or mine. Doesn't mean they're corrupted.
Morality is absolute. It doesn't change from person to person.
Actually it does change.
Pinky - I don't understand that - how are morals absolute? Where are they defined? I suppose you might say the Bible but even Biblical scholars don't agree on everything the good book says and how many versions are available today?
Thank you, pinky. Shelly, the concepts are still the same regardless of the version. The Bible is still the Bible.
I hate these vague questions. So many factors. I voted gay because without more details or where they live, how much money they make, both work or one work, what kind of people are they? I know many gay and lesbian couples that are amazing parents
Any who I voted for gay as they were getting slammed in the polls :)
The only factor in this question is sexual orientation. You don't need to over complicate things.
Actually if you were going to make this decision you would absolutely need to "over complicate" the question
I would choose the straight couple.
I wouldn't roll the dice on the gay couple only to find unwanted side affects showing later on.
In the end it wouldn't really matter as long as they were loved and cared for. I did choose the straight couple, though because they have the advantage of having a female and male role model living in the house.
Ain't no damn homos touching my kid.
You know, I've heard of a klan that's looking for people like you. I'm sure you'd enjoy it.
People who are brought up in homophobic environments are likely to have more closeted homo erotic thoughts.
Well you know I've started to give some serious thought to joining pizza and his uncle.
And I will gladly support your decision.
Omg Scotty! Lolol
I have a serious question: why does it matter? If they're both good homes then I really don't care either way.
There are certain advantages the straight couple can provide over the gay couple, such as having a male and female role model.
I would need to get a feel for the couples, so I don't really know.
I'd rather if my child grew up with a mother and a father.
Straight couple. Its better if a boy has a mother in his life. A man can not be a mother. (Not to say a father cannot raise a child on his own.)
It would depend on their home situation, their economics, their plans for the baby, their home location, their personalities. If they were indeed equal in all respects (which is doubtful) I suppose I would have to flip a coin.
My thoughts exactly.
Aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 75% of Democrats said gay so far!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm being outnumbered by my own party!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why????????!!!!!!!!
Now it's 80%!!!!!!!!! WTF!!!!!!!!
My theory: Because the question is written in such a way that if those of us who believe that gay couples make equally good parents don't pick gay couple as an answer than it looks like we don't practice what we preach.
It's just asking who you would pick. Not who you think is the better set of parents
Just because we believe in equality doesn't mean we're hypocrites if we have a personal preference.
It wouldn't matter as long as the baby got a good home
I want my kid to be with the family unit that scientists have a better understanding of.
If the choice was between a single heterosexual and a homosexual couple I would pick the homosexual couple because two parents are better than one.
I think that's a respectable answer.
I don't think there's enough research to fully guarantee that being raise by gay parents is exactly the same as straight parents - and I don't see how it can be.
The straight couple
Give him a normal life.
There are so many other factors beyond sexual orientation...
Not in this question.
Either one, but probably lean toward the gay couple. It is logical that the child will grow up with a tolerance of people with different sexual orientations. Also, in many places it is harder or impossible for gay couples to adopt.
You can say "either" but in order to comment, you had to choose one. I've asked this before but now there are more/different followers.
