Children Raised By Gay Parents Do VERY Well In Life!!!

There seems to be a preconceived notion that children raised in families with gay parents are less happy, or don't do as well in life as children with straight parents.

But new research is starting to dispel those notions!

Not only are children with gay parents happy and normal, but many are actually healthier and are closer to their family than many children from "normal" families.

They are also VERY accepting children!

Here's what a researcher said:

"Because of the situation that same-sex families find themselves in, they are generally more willing to communicate and approach the issues that any child may face at school, like teasing, bullying, overt homophobia and rejection. This fosters openness and means children tend to be more resilient. That would be our hypothesis."

That's incredible!!!

And yet we're not totally surprised!

We've seen some pretty amazing people already, who were raised by gay parents, succeeding in life!

We're sure we'll see plenty more before it's all over!!!

    I would hate to be raised by gay parents. Most importantly I would feel a tremendous loss of never having a real mother. Women and men are different and two men or two women cannot fill the void. Also each child has a right to know who the biological parent is. Gay parents like Perez and Elton John are selfish, they have prohibited the child from ever knowing the real mom. Socially with two gay parents, the kid is an outcast, wont fit in, and will be discriminated against. Most kids can't handle that.

    For heavens sake, this should not even be a discussion. Any child that is truly loved will do well. If you want to pick out the gays, look at Rosie's well adjusted kids or Jodie Foster's kids. I could go on and on but I wont. I'm just saying that these people truly wanted children so therefore the children are very very loved and well cared for as any kid that is truly wanted. It is the welfare mamma's doing it for the money that have loser kids because they dont want the kids, they want uncle sam's money!!

    shut up perez. it's a hypothesis not the actual results. why are you trying to start a gay cult. it seems that everything you post about gays points to them being superior and are underestimated people who actually surpass "normal" people in most aspects of life. take your head out of your gay ass and stop being pretentious.

    Sure…except if they are raised by Elton or you Mario. I give you 2 years before you are arrested for sexual abuse of a child. No matter how incredibly ugly yours is you will one day abuse it.

    This doesn't prove anything. A hypothesis is a prediction, not a scientific conclusion… As for the whole gay couples raising a child issue: I personally feel as though, instead of creating a new child, why don't you adopt one that would definitely, without a shadow of a doubt, benefit from your parenting (look at it's alternative..)? Creating a new child is selfish, in my opinion - regardless of the parents sexuality. However, I highly doubt a child will benefit from having gay parents considering that the vast majority of kids are brought up by straight guardians. And we all know how kids react to outcasts…

    LMAO, of course you would say this since you have that mongoloid looking thing you call your son to raise. I bet it commits suicide by 5 years old w/ you as his "dad".

    This isn't a surprise at all. Love it!

    Re: Common Sense – You wouldn't miss what you never had. Also, all you need is a female figure in your life, so Aunts, Grandmas and family friends could always fill the gaps.

    Re: ericmtl – You are sick! Why the f*** would he do that to his kid? Being gay doesn't mean pedophile.

    That's provided you don't pimp the baby out on a website every chance you get that will lead to psychological damage for the rest of its life.

    Of course they're normal, homosexuals aren't any different than anyone else, except with whom they are attracted to.
    But usually homophobic people are either really stupid, and don't believe in science, and/or they are mind fucked by religion to believe being gay is evil.

    Re: misscheriamor – I disagree. Children do miss what they didn't have.



  19. 19

    u can get a surrogate and u can get a sperm donor u dont need to have a baby urself if ur a woman and u dont need a woman to have it except for a surrogate the world is changing and with the banks falling apart all the enforced mortgages are collapsing the world order is changing and strong people are coming out on top no matter what their sexual preference… so this doesnt surprise me maybe they are more grateful to have kids and loving then other people so they put more energy into the kids being they had to fight to get what they have … who knows..

    First borns also tend to do better than subsequent siblings when tracked over time, but it doesn't preclude other siblings from doing very well indeed. Their extra development has something to do with more levels of responsibility and older kids helping the younger kids.
    Kids can do very well in, and adapt to all kinds of families if they're loved and provided with the basics plus more.

    It should be that GOOD parents raise GOOD children. Gay, straight or single. If a parent is present and positive your going to have a good kid

    Re: misscheriamor – do you realize that every fatherless childs christmas list to santa includes a daddy? you don't miss what you never had, what a silly statement.

    Re: Hmmm… – The study shows that children raised by same sex families ARE happier. The hypothesis is a theory as to why that is. Whilst the reason for their happiness may be unproven. The fact that the kids are happy is wonderful!

    You must have been abused as a child. All that projecting and built up angst. It's OK, boo. Somebody loves you!

    Hopefully more adjusted than you. I mean, you are trolling on a gossip site.



  28. 28

    Of course they do! This is new to some people? As long as the at home life is happy, no matter the gender, the kids will do well. Happy is the most important part. You can have a straight couple who are miserable together so the child is miserable. I can't believe people think homosexuals can't make good parents. Sad really. I may not be gay but I support it and my children will as well. Such ignorance will not be tolerated.

    I am a gay man , but did you know one of the columbine killers was raised by lesbian parents and the sperm doner was a gay man !! Just saying

    As much as people may not want to admit it, many children of straight parents are "accidents". EVERY child adopted by a gay couple is wanted because they have to go through an extensive adoption process. Obviously a couple that has planned that long for having a child will make sure they parent right.

    So many problems in our society (for example crime) are cause by bad parenting. I say let gay couple adopt children from those that will end up being bad parents.

    Re: Mark R. – So you just make stuff up? A true TROLL.



  33. 33

    They do no differently than anyone else. That isn't the question. The question is whether or no the parent(s) are bottom feeding douchebags. In your case, your child will probably end up being a cutter because you're such a hypocritical scumbag. :)

    The two ugliest gay men on the planet. I never get two bottoms - do they rub their assholes together?

    Kids need love, attention, education and protection. As long as they get that, it doesn't matter the gender nor sexual orientation. Yes men and women are different but that's for procreational purposed. For those who go on stating men and women teach different things, gender roles which are socially constructed, they are constantly changing and really have mo bearing on a child. The kids have tv and the internet which also has some effects on the way a child is raised. In conclusion, kids of same sex parent vs the"normal" are no more scarred or loved.

    not even surprised.. mine and most families i know with heteros are so fcking dysfunctional its ridiculous. and the way some of them discipline.. thats why ive felt im not good enough to someday have a family of my own at all while the reality is i was always there for one of the parents, constantly fighting with the other, and my sibs as i'm a middle child, and my dream has long been to someday adopt a little girl

    Where I live I see gay parents all the time. They seem very loving and attentive. I would rather see a child grow up in a family with gay parents than in a heterosexulal relationship with strife and hate. I dont agree with the lifestyle but the truth is the children seem very happy and loved!

    Re: Hmmmmm…. – This is just one of MANY studies with results stating that children raised by gay parents are better adjusted,more accepting, happier etc. Just because Perez was ignorant to the other studies and speaks about this particular one is the first doesnt mean it is.

    Thou protest too much Mario. You get your facts like you eat fish. The whole fish is edible but you pick and chose only what you want to eat. One researcher says this and it's stone cold written in cement fact?

    Fact: Suicides, drug abuse, and depression is higher with homosexuals than with heterosexuals. Stop cherry picking information just to shove your "choice" of what you are down our throats. (Please forgive the unintended pun my friends.)



  41. 41

    Gay parents would be fine, no matter what the kid. Love is what counts.

    Tho I fail to see the benefit in ridiculing people over the internet and then adopting a kid. Perez's kid will likely be fucked in the head, not because he is gay, but because he's a terrible person.



  42. 42

    "Studies" like this are generally always full of shit border-lining propaganda. No matter how open you teach your kids to be, they aren't going to tell you everything about their lives. How many gay kids have committed suicide or bully victims only for the parents to have no damn idea…A lot. Males and females are very, very, very different as one user said.

    Although there's nothing wrong with being gay, it is indeed nature's screw-up. It wasn't meant to be.

    What sought of disgusting human being would say rent a baby? Wake up and thing about abused and neglected children. Think about those who are loved and cherished in any home - gay, straight or single parent. Close minded people!!!

    I cannot believe the hate and spite directed at Perez and his son. Why read his blog at all? Do not read this blog. To describe his son in these filthy terms reflects on you as a human being. Wake up narrow minded idiots!!!!

    Re: DaVinci – You raise a very important point. Lovingly addressing any issues a child will probably raise due to being in an (perceived) unconventional family unit ahead of time means they will have solid answers BEFORE they decide to use it as a scapegoat for everything that's 'wrong' in their lives, as teenagers in hormone hell will tend to do as a part of the growing process. Face it head on, and preferably before they make up all kinds of erroneous stuff in their heads about it.
