We are living in a world which is having a cultural struggle in what concerns the acceptance of homosexuality between both men and women. And the situation is that some of us, who lack prejudices and consider that each person has the right to choose what he or she believes is the best in life, whereas others have a totally opposed vision of liberty and, therefore, hardly agree with homosexuality.
However, the matter becomes much more interesting when we have to think about the next situation: if gay couples can be good parents to adopted children or not. This question raises both negative and positive opinions, and it is difficult to give a final answer.
Therefore, some of us will say that the best for a child is to grow up in a loving family, and gay couples h
ave the capacities to offer protection and education to their adopted child. If there is understanding in the family, then the child will be brought up in a proper environment. On the other hand, others will say that living in a family in which parents are two men, for example, a child will suffer from sexual orientation. Still, we don't have to think like this because that couple can have female friends and relatives who can contribute to the education of the adopted child, a boy for instance. Therefore, the child enters into contact with both sexes; then he will have the possibility to choose his sexual preferences, and the fact that his parents are gay does not mean he will be like them.
Then, we have to think that there are many bad parents, heterosexual ones, who behave violently with their offspring. And now we raise the question: Do they have more rights to be parents than gay couples have?
From my point of view, they don't, because gay persons can have much interest in raising a child and if they make the decision to adopt one this means they really want to be parents. And there have been cases when gay couples decided to adopt a black child, even if they were white, because they consider that any child deserves a better life outside the orphanage.
