Not really, just don't be too smart with academic terms if crossing th LQ rules might depend on proper ( or improper) understanding of their meanings. This is not a sociology forum, after all, and no one wants to parse it.

One could ask the question the other way around: Would it be against Human Rights to deny children to be adopted because the parents that want to adopt are a same sex couple?

You assume that a child has a right to parents, and within that right, a right to parents of a particular kind and nature.

Please state the basis for your belief that a child's "human rights" include the right to parents to begin with, and to parents of a particular kind and nature as well.

Homosexual parenting, in terms of impact on children, might have any effects?

In general, malfunctioning families create social problems and may effect the social equilibrium of the child.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with same-sex couples adopting children. As long as the parents do their jobs properly and provide a stable, caring environment, the children will grow up just fine.

What I find disgusting is the bigotry towards the LGBT community. This thread itself is disgusting.

And I as well.


Furthermore, I believe that the capacity to be a good parent or a bad parent is unrelated to sexual orientation. What should be considered in any adoption is the child's welfare, not the sexual orientation and gender preference of the parents.

It is already very difficult for a woman and a man. So, why to look forward for sthg that was not planned by the nature?


Humans keep doing mistakes one after another.
You should watch this movie to understand better: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063442/


For instance, they don't rise kinda dangerous antennas on the roof of schools? What about the chemistry of the bottles for babies to heat up their milk?
And so on. No Comments. It is human history.

After don't complain that we haven't great rates in our countries.

You are thinking wrong. There are absolutely nothing mean against the LGBT community. This thread has nothing to do with LGBT community. It is fine, that there are legalized. In the history, LGBT has been existing. The marriage was a thinkable step for giving same possibilities.

This thread is about education, ... development of children. Please do not be confused.

Now, we can create a new wording: "Biologically Family"?


So you shall also fight against the definition of the family:
Quote:
Wikipedia:
In human context, a family (from Latin: familia) is a group of people affiliated by consanguinity, affinity, or co-residence. In most societies it is the principal institution for the socialization of children. Anthropologists most generally classify family organization as matrilocal (a mother and her children); conjugal (a husband, his wife, and children; also called nuclear family); and consanguineal (also called an extended family) in which parents and children co-reside with other members of one parent's family.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Family

What will be this planet in 100 years?

You're entirely missing the point that the supposed breakdown of the traditional family and family values in the western world has nothing whatsoever to do with gay people or gay adoption...

I would like to know which damages to the child's education or development you expect if a child is raised by a LGBT couple.

First, both LGBT and regular family (non LGBT) can be armful and so on. The opposite work as well. A child can be brought up and have received a great education, be happy of him/herself... and so on. All is possible.
However what works on one given child, cannot work again even on almost same situation/circumstances.



Regarding question:
This is a quite difficult question.



This is why there is such an ambiguity people arent capable to find if the answer is correct or not.

There is maybe no solution. Might be the right answer.

So what you actually say is: regardless if it is a heterosexual couple or a LGBT couple that raises a child, the child can have a good or a bad childhood, it comes down to the ability of the couple to raise a child.
So why should it be against the Human Rights to let a LGBT couple adopt a child again?

Some human right councils argues that for instance there are limits related to family,... It is not approved in all countries in the world.
