It would be great for a child to be put in a loving and caring home but now with homosexual parents. Raising a child in being homosexual may influence the child to be something they are not or even confuse the child about their own sexuality. All children follow their parent footsteps, so they do what they see. Becoming a parent it’s not easy, a parent is considered someone who is caring for you and wants the best in your life. Parents are responsible for lots of things in a child life, their responsible for their education, their well-being, decisions, safety, and the respect their child show to others.
Individuals believe that if children were raised by homosexual parents that it would corrupt the child into believing that everyone is gay or lesbian later on in life. As for the American Academy of Pediatrics' (AAP), they ran tests and revealed that the majority of the sex parents are "more tolerant of diversity and more nurturing toward younger children than children whose parents are heterosexual" (Hirsch, Alan, and Brad Sears). For raising a child, homosexuals seem to understand how to grow children into better adults; by growing them like plants, they have to dig their roots or their morals and principles into the foundation of their life to understand who they are and how to act. Children that are being raised around discrimination towards their parents takes a lot out of the parents by showing their children the right way and how to treat others as
Gay parenting has been viewed various ways by society, some view it as awful, and some stand somewhere in between. Same sex parenting has been around since for a few decades, yet not publicly acknowledged until about 2010 when same sex partners started fighting for the right to legally care for the wellbeing of a child. It is strongly believed by some in society that one man and one woman should raise a family in a home that consist of a married couple, man and a woman, and their natural born or adopted children. Throughout the years, same sex couples fighting for their right to adopt, and raise children are altering this belief. Same sex couples are capable of raising productive members of society, due to the fact; they protect their children from bullying, meet the criteria to adoption, and seek advice to parenting children of unique circumstances.
In Today’s more liberal society, homosexuality seeing more acceptance than ever before. Homosexuals and heterosexuals alike have parental instincts and are as interested in beginning families and raising children. A family should be based on love and trust, if these two elements are present in a relationship, there would be no reason that the environment the couple creates for a child would be bad. If we look into the pros that adoption by gay parents have, we consider adoption as a very important part of
There is a solution to this problem. Gay adoption. There is a rising amount of open homosexual couples everywhere and most of them would love to have kids, but it’s still illegal for homosexual couples to adopt children in some areas of the U.S., let alone the world. All across our country, and in other countries, there are children awaiting adoption and eager parents who would like to welcome those children into their homes but are banned from doing so. These parents have done nothing wrong and possess the same skills and resources as other potential parents, and yet they are not allowed to give a child everything he or she needs, love, protection, and security.
Gay marriage is one of the most controversial and sensitive issues in the modern world. In most cultures across the globe, homosexuality was viewed with disdain, and marriages between same-sex couples were prohibited. However, homosexual relationships are slowly gaining acceptance. With an increase in tolerance for homosexuality in the society, the controversy over the legalization of gay marriage has been disputed among people in many nations. While the majority of the population believes that the legalization of gay marriage will have negative impact on the society, gay activists claim that it is against basic civil rights to prohibit them from marrying.
This includes small social groups, rather than a larger outlook on society, as a whole unit. This can be applied to the small groups formed by the LGBT community, as well as alternative families. Parents are the biggest influence in a child’s life. Growing up in alternative family gives parents the ability to shape and form how their child views and interacts with society. Exposing children to an alternative family, may make this child grow up more open and accepting of LGBT individuals than they would be growing up in a traditional
(Tulchin) During mid evil Europe, same sex union was a common practice until it was banned. Others may suggest that gay marriage has increased child adoption. Since homosexual relationships can not reproduce children of their own, they’re forced to take in, love and care for an innocent child who would otherwise be suffering in foster child institutions. Gary Gates’ analyses showed that adoptive parenting was clearly on the raise. Among couples with children, the proportion of same-sex couples who had adopted children had nearly doubled from 10% to 19% between 2000 and 2009.
They also believe that people with same-sex parents are more likely to be bullied. Many people believe that a child with same-sex parents will believe that being lesbian or gay is normal and that they will want to become that. Many people believe that children with lesbian or gay parents will become their parents sexuality, but “there is no evidence that children of lesbian and gay parents are confused about their gender identity, either in childhood or adulthood, or that they are more likely to be homosexual” (Meezan). These children know that their parents are not society’s norm and they are taught to be accepting of all people even heterosexuals. Some of these children might act differently at a young age because most children act alike their parents.
HOMOPARENTAL ADOPTION AND THE FACE OF ETHICS Introduction Adoption of homosexual couples is a controversial topic because it is considered as the next natural step after the legalization of homosexual marriages. In the lasts years, this topic has evolved and it involves different ethical aspects. This work pretends to create a space of critical analysis and reflection that allows people to be rational and impartial at decision making for the wellness of society where they belong, and at the same time taking into consideration the general fact of family as the fundamental basis in society, also how love join families, as well as the influence of homosexual couples when referring to sexual identity of children and the priority of rights of them.
