    You are only able to make that statement because your alive because you're parent being heterosexual.
    You're only making that statement because you completely missed the point.

    Same-sex couples can have children as well though. It just requires a sperm donor/surrogate

    I think people seem to forget that homosexual people/couples can also adopt children instead of pro-creating and thus help give a child a better chance of having a better life.

    Oh and I will say there has been research proven that homosexual couples/people are just as good as heterosexual couples/people.

    You are mistaken. Not all parents are heterosexual; many have children and then work out their sexuality.

    And more recently, gay men can have children in all sorts of ingenious ways. For example, using the sperm of one and an egg from the sister of the other, implanted into a surrogate, which will create a child directly genetically related to both of them.

    So, in that case.... would you say that this child is alive because its parents are gay?

    Even if gay people couldn't have children... so what? Is that even an argument?

    Don't have a problem with gays, I have a problem with stuff like gay couples adopting.
    Exactly I have that same problem too. I will feel very sorry for the child.

    As mentioned earlier, there have been studies into same-sex couples raising children. Most show that they are as good as heterosexual couples at raising children.

    Why? The only negative occurance that has an increased probability in the child life is encountering homophobic behaviour. Aside from that there isn't any significant probability increase of a negative affect that can happen to the child, but there are lots of positives as the child generally grows up more tolerant, open and accepting.

    Bullying can happen for any reason, children adopted by ethnic minorities, or mixed race couples are more likely to encounter racist behaviour, should we stop them adopting to. Bullying can happen for any reason, why should a child be deprived of loving parents because some people are bigoted *****.

    Homosexuality isn't an illness, therefore it can't be 'cured'.

    If your parents were gay (both of them) and repelled against intercourse with opposite sex, would you being alive now?
    I have a friend who is the son of a lesbian who used her male gay friend as a sperm donor...

    You'd feel sorry for a child who now had two loving parents instead of them remaining in foster care? I think there may be an issue there...

    Damn those doctors for putting their efforts into people who actually have problems that affect their daily lives rather than attempting to 'cure' an orientation which doesn't not cause dysfunction or harm, in ways that have been shown to cause dysfunction and harm!

    That is not gay sex. the man is having sex with his gay partners sister does not mean the two men is having children. Is meaning on is having children with his sister.

    In fear of going into a full-blown religious argument, I'm just going to say this. For a God who "regards all people the same" and "loves us all equally", (for I believe this is what Christians think), I don't know how you can say, "Well, actually, homosexuals are wrong".

    Contradiction? And seriously... It's one of many.
    To be fair, that god also encourages the rape of prisoners of war, the murder of babies and slavery, so I think its position on LGBT rights is pretty far down the list of problems.

    I have a problem with gay people because I find they are incredibly immature, anti-social, lack any real interests and spend their lives seeking sex rather than relationships. But that's speaking from the perspective of a gay, I actually have to date these ****ers. Once I find a man from the 0.1% who aren't like that I have no intention of speaking to any other gays, they are a waste of time.

    Of course this post will likely receive a lot of tongue wagging from straights or fag hags who haven't a clue what gays are actually like.

    He's not having sex with her, his sperm is fertilising her egg in an IVF lab.

    Well no, it doesn't. And can you speak English? You're barely comprehensible.
