nightswimming saidI was talking with my friend from school (who is also gay) and he says that gay shouldn't have children, because child should have mother and father. We argued about it for 15 minutes, and we agreed that this thing is more complicated. I wonder if kids raised by homosexual parents don't have troubles with other kids at school, you know, mocking etc. So, what's your opinion?
It is very complicated with no clear cut answer. Ideally, a child should have a mother and father because that's how a child gets created. But look at the divorce rate and how it's gone up, up, up. More and more children are growing up in broken homes. But that doesn't mean they have to grow up broken; they may face more challenges and it can actually empower them to be overachievers.
Some children are going to have problems, be mocked, etc., whether they have a mom and dad, just a mom, just a dad, two moms or two dads. And they may or may not have problems because their parents are of different races or faiths. What's important is the child getting unconditional love from the parent(s), since they can't control outside factors, like what their classmates think or say about them or their parents.
Hopefully, the current awareness of bullying is going to make many more kids think about what they're saying and doing to their peers.
