What this argument does not take into account is that Many Girls look to hold the typical title of the beloved & adorable “Daddy 's little girl”. To a girl her father is the biggest part regarding male behavior. Studies show that adolescent girls who grow up without their dads, have a greater proximity and distance problems to peers and boys which could interfere with relationships later on in their lives which could unintentionally have them become teen moms. Lesbians more than likely do not have a close male adult in their lives so if they were to adopt a boy then the child would not have a male role model in their lives which could have them act out in life and become criminals or they will be more feminine. Ultimately, the legalization of gay adoption everywhere would greatly benefit our society.
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.
III) Homosexuals can provide the love, care and home that a child needs (Reason). A) Homosexuals work and know what it means to provide a home not only for themselves but for a child (Warrant). B) According to the article “Gay Parenting Pros and Cons” by Crystal Lombardo gay parents are about the benefits of the new family unit and its impact to society, they are able to help in focusing on the child’s welfare and are able to give the child they adopt the opportunity of living in a loving family which they have not yet experienced (Backing). 1) According to the article “Pros & Cons of Foster Care” children and the family involved in the foster care system not only have many resources available to them provided such as education, but they also receive a small amount of money to help the foster family in providing for the child (Rebuttal). IV) Homosexuals are still people regardless of sexual orientation and deserve to parent without interference from peoples judgements and beliefs
When a child is born they go through the process of figuring out who they really are, as well as who they want to be. Society in many ways negatively impacts the freedom a child has whilst exploring this phase in life. It dictates what to do, and what not to do. Strong parental figures help shield young kids away from society at large and allow them to make their own decisions without any fear. Through reading the pieces “My son is Gay” and “I like to wear dresses” and Ivan Coyote we see how hatred directed towards children for just being themselves often discourages children from exploring their gender.
What is companionship? Many would say that these are just two things that go hand in hand in what many would consider marriage, but according to Sprigg, “It’s still not sufficient to define marriage”(Sprigg P.7). In addition, He uses this to support his protest that homosexual relationships shouldn’t be given the legal status of marriage. To some this is all simply a man answering questions while declaring his standpoint on the topic, but to me it’s much more. As a member-for lack or a better word- of the LGBT community it honestly breaks my heart to see that someone could be so determined that marriage defies same-sex relationships as well as have the audacity to even claim said unions have any ‘consequences’ at all, and negative at that.
Naomi Bennett Mrs. Bauch Speech 18 May 2016 Many children struggle with the fact of not having a mother or father figure and gay marriage would definitely not helping no matter how loving or kind they are it just isn?t enough for the child?s need and wants. Why you should care because in a contest between the desires of homosexuals and the needs of our children we can?t allow our children to lose (Hansen). Gay Marriage is unholy, while homosexual acts go against the natural moral law. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementary under no circumstances can they be approved (Ratzinger). In Romans chapter one twenty six through twenty seven the bible says God gave them over to shameful lusts.
Denying homosexual couples the right to adopt may be helpful to the children, however, by letting same-gender couples adopt, they receive a more stable, permanent home. Children in the adoption system or the foster care system are without parents to look up to and learn from, and that can essentially be more harmful to the child. Perhaps what children need is the love that homosexual couples have the potential to provide. They need a family. This is debated in the article titled “Adoption Bills Put Religion Ahead of Kids" when it states "I'm not approaching this from an equal protection or parental advocacy perspective.
The popular democratic view on sexual orientation is that it should never be something that someone is discriminated or declined rights for. No matter how small the rights may seem nobody should be declined that right because of their natural attraction to the opposite sex or both sexes, the need to be the opposite gender, gender fluid, no gender identification, having no sexual attraction to either sex, and so on. Sexual orientation is not a thing that can be chosen and many conservative peoples argue this fact. The idea that conservatives base their defiance towards homosexuals is the idea that parents of the same sex cannot raise a child in the way that parents of opposite sex could. This conservative idea is rational, but simply not true as the American Psychological Association states the “psychological and social aspects” between homosexual and heterosexual relations are very similar and make both equally fit to care for a child.
It amazed me to see how strongly some parents felt about “preventing” their children from becoming the deviants. Burt Blanchard, father of John, was going to get divorced with his wife than to agree with her and approve his son to change his name legally from Giana to John. He was willing to give up his relationship with his family in order to have his child conform to gender normativity. His determination to not let his child change his gender made me think about how narrowly structured our concepts of “norm” is and
