Since there has been several topics on homosexuality in this part of the forum, I thought this question might as well go along with those.

As far as same sex marriage goes, only 4 out of the 50 states in the US have even legalized same sex marriage. As far as the rest of the world goes, Idk much since I've been born and raised in the US(but that doesn't mean I haven't traveled to places). And most of them would want to have children too. So do you think think that they should be allowed to adopt them?
If so, why? And if not, why not?

P.S. This is just a curiosity question. Is homosexuality legalized in India?

Note: I am gonna argue both sides since that's how a debate should be.

Agreed to some extent. But what if the child doesn't know much about homosexuality? Wouldn't he or she expect to have a woman for a mother and a man for a father? If s/he is adopted by a gay family, wouldn't it affect his/her upbringing?

well it will depend upon the age of the child, if he is too small then it will get used to them and wont even mind any such thing. as it is they would be tonnes better than heterosexual parents who abandoned these children and dropped them to an orphanage.
one more thing. they may be ridiculed at their schools and colleges, and also at the functions where mothers/fathers r invited they will actually feel awkward.  but still i think having parents will give them sense of security and being cared for.
Its a good idea.Thumbs Up


But what if the gay couple are not married? And wouldn't homosexual environment model homosexual behavior in the child?

Also, doesn't every child have a right to a mother and a father?

But what is the homosexual parents are in a stable and committed relationship? Do you still think that gay parents wouldn't be able to raise the child as well as the heterosexual ones?
