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.

If we look into the pros that adoption by gay parents have, we consider adoption as a very important part of
The age difference was important, the young muscular, innocent body was worshiped by the older men. If you were gay in ancient greek you were thought of as being more blessed then other straight or even lesbians. Homosexuality between women (status) The daily life for a woman in greek are quite unknown for us today. Their biggest role was to bear children, they lived enclosed, protected and monitored. Though in Sparta, females had more freedom and even got education.
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
“We believe in equality for everyone, everywhere—no matter who they are or who they love.” Ben and Jerry’s are proud supporters of social justice, LGBT rights, and marriage equality. They have supported same-sex marriage by being one of the first major employers in Vermont to offer health insurance to same-sex couples. They did not think it was something that would change the world, but did it because they thought it was fair. This thoughtful gesture was given to the same-sex couples in 1989. In 1996, Ben and Jerry’s offered grants to the parents, friends, and families of lesbians and gays.
The Outsiders and Family Relationships One would think that conventional families are the most beneficial to a child’s mental, as well as physical health, but that is not always the case. There are many perfect parents, in every sense of the word, that have children that, well, aren’t good in people in general. Many unconventional families may also produce phenomenally great children. Sure, conventional families have more of an advantage in raising their kids, because they have the resources to do so, but there are exceptions. Think about Bob.
In October 12, 2010, Joel Burns made a public message towards the GLBT teens by sharing a personal story. He delivered an amazing message by sharing also those who’ve been victims of being portrayed as gay, bullying, and suicides. Inspiring the young GLBT (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender) teens that life does not end by the words of others who have an oppose mentality. Life does get better once you graduate high school, adventure throughout your adult life, finding someone you may last a lifetime, and building a foundation just like those individuals who singled you out for having different interest. “...that the things would get easier, please stick around, society will change, please live long enough to see it…” (Joel Burns, 2010)
Everyone has needs in life. Mary E. Papke argues that in the story “the search of selfhood and desire are presented as parts of a possible and positive process, despite what the social and moral commandments say.” Sexuality was a natural part of life under the sanctions of marriage. A woman's sexuality was not her own, but a blessed feature which was the man's to invade upon marriage. The man in the relationship also has the responsibility to make his wife satisfied and happy; mentally, sexually, and emotionally. It’s the little things that count in a
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.
This fair and loving treatment now embraces homosexuals and those who are united in gay marriage. Laws are now in place to protect everyone, despite their gender preference. No matter what one believes about the previous statements, the idea of equality is necessary to a democracy and has worked, though many have waded through rough waters, for the United
Birth Control & Planned Parenthood: The Pros & Cons According to researchers, “Planned parenthood is one of the nation 's leading providers of high quality of affordable health care for women, men, and young people, and the nation’s largest provider of sex education and birth control.” (Planned parenthood) Birth control and planned parenthood is commonly controversial because people think that birth control and planned parenthood helpful, and it prevents young teens and others from becoming pregnant.
