    I don't accept it because of religious beliefs and the pure fact that I don't think its 'natural'.
    I mean natural in the sense of how I see God had created us..
    Some penguins are gay.

    Maybe Satan's corrupted their souls too.

    No. But it's a zero sum game. I don't believe that there is any shortage of heterosexual couples that wish to adopt.
    And nor is there any shortage of children that needs a loving home. Either way, sexuality is irrelevant

    I've just never followed or understood the line of argument that says that if it weren't for gay couples wanting to adopt children would be condemned to a life in Dr.Barnados. I don't see the evidence for that oft-repeated "would you rather they stay in the system" argument.

    They have most of them, lack a few which are steadily being given to them.
    Did you mean to say they don't deserve them? Because they are human beings and therefore they get human rights.

    Exactly I have that same problem too. I will feel very sorry for the child.

    All the evidence suggests that gay parents are just go as their straight counterparts. See here and here.

    Do you feel scared when some random straight people touch your girlfriend's/wife's vagina when she is doing a pee-pee? Gay people don't touch every man's penis...... they are same as normal humans. they just have different choices.

    As a gay woman, I assure you I'm much less likely to do so than a straight woman.

    Slightly off topic but, is it easier for you to find a partner then I?
    Me - Gay
    You - Lesbian

    In short, are you with someone or have been in the past?
    If so, you are doing better than me...

    Just curious...

    I'd argue that homosexuality wasn't unfamiliar, considering the fact that its always existed in humans

    Since abrahamic religions came into being though, it went into hiding making it somewhat taboo to talk about or express in the last 2000ish years...

    Unfamiliar as in not a part of a persons daily life, maybe?
