Hello, I'm sorta of researching same-sex adoption and others and I would like to ask, is there anyone who has same-sex parents? Or any homosexuals who have adopted/ have children?
If so, do you mind sharing your 'story' with me? Like if you're the children of them, what are your sexual preferences? A lot of people say that if you have homosexual parents, you will be homosexual. I find this pretty inaccurate. However; I don't actually know anyone to ask. And if you have adopted, what kind of problems did you run into? If any.
[This is for a research project]
You obviously don't have to answer, but it would be lovely if you did. I don't have any hands on experience, especially not in my area. I think learning from actual people instead of inaccurate research would be much better.
Thank you for your time and have a lovely day!

LMFAO !!!!! Dan Savage, one of the most outspoken gay activist, and his husband adopted a boy several years ago. The now teen recently came out to his parents as heterosexual.

The only thing children of same sex parents are likely to be is more tolerant.

"primal man had the habit, when he came into contact with fire, of satisfying the infantile desire connected with it, by putting it out with a stream of his urine... Putting out the fire by micturating was therefore a kind of sexual act with a male, an enjoyment of sexual potency in a homosexual competition."

Or not...

1. There are severe methodological flaws in the Regnerus study, such that "this study was widely discredited by researchers." [6]

1a. The study examines children who witnessed their parent having a same-sex romantic relationship. It fails to consider important variables, including the length of the relationship (was it a day, a week, etc.), whether or not the child was raised by a same-sex couple or by a single parent, socioeconomic challenges, parental drug abuse, educational opportunities, parental harmony, geographic location, etc. In fact, Regnerus "admitted under questioning...that only two of the subjects in his study were raised from birth by committed same-sex couples and both had positive outcomes." [7]

1b. Regnerus has a long history of anti-gay bias [7] and his study was funded and supported by right-wing organizations seeking to advance that agenda. [8]

2. There are possible alternative causes to the effect described by Regnerus (if you believe his study). One such hypothesis is that the social stigma gay families suffer, as well as the fact that childcare benefits reserved for married couples are often withheld from gay households, may adversely effect the children. Thus, the cause of the children's adverse outcomes was not their parents, but rather that society systematically disadvantaged them.

3. Many studies directly contradict Pro's claims. "Empirical studies comparing children raised by sexual minority parents with those raised by otherwise comparable heterosexual parents have not found reliable disparities in mental health or social adjustment. Differences have not been found in parenting ability between lesbian mothers and heterosexual mothers. Studies examining gay fathers are fewer in number but do not show that gay men are any less fit...than heterosexual men. Additionally...clinical research shows that 'children of gender-variant parents do not develop gender dysphoria...due to their parents' diagnosis with gender identity disorder." [6]
