    Bully at school: "my dad will batter your dad..."

    Me: "LISTEN! MY DAD WILL SHAG YOUR DAD!!!!!! and your dad will enjoy it :sexface:"

    So I have the upper hand there!

    No prizes for guessing who that came from.

    It's horrific and totally disgusting and shouldn't be allowed. His development as a child will be severely hindered, you need a mother, and you need a father !...

    Just like if you're brought up in a single parents family, or one of your parents has died. Families are evolving.

    Just a mum
    Just a dad
    An aunt
    uncle

    Just not TWO guys, it's wrong.

    Surely if we're saying a child needs a male and a female role model, we're saying children shouldn't be brought up with only one parent?
    My friend has been brought up by her dad, so she doesn't really have a female role model. The only difference with gay dads is that there are two of them.
    Being brought up by two guys is bad, but then the two guys being gay that's horrendous.

    I don't see how being brought up by two men would be difficult to being brought up by one?

    I have nothing against being gay.
    I just think you need Both a Mother and Father in a child's life (or at least some sort of equivalent figures).

    I think that they both play important roles in upbringing of a child and I don't think it's fair to dismiss the father or mother. And if two guys have a kid, atleast have some sort of female support as well.

    I don't think it's realistic to say "it's all about the personality of the parent regardless of their gender" because a child will need the perspective of both.

    But then again I don't think a child will have a "hindered upbringing" if they had gay guardians, I just think they should have two influences which carry out the role of a mother and father .

    Ultimately I believe a child needs a variety of role models, both masculine and feminine
    What makes you think that though? My father was pretty much absent throughout most of my life (and my brother and sister's) yet I'm pretty sure we all turned out normally with just a mother.

    You're not going to develop into a adult properly, it will heavily influence the kids childhood. They may even get bullied.

    How will it not develop into a proper adult? Just because it has single sex parents doesn't mean it won't have contact with any of the opposite sex. It's sad, Children will get bullied for anything, it's not exactly anything new.

    Why wouldn't you develop into an adult, and one parent heavily influences the kids childhood anyway, and believe it or not children get bullied for all kinds of things including being part of a single parent family. So what is the issue of two dads?

    Being part of a single-parent family. I don't think so, there's so many teenagers that have been brought up in single-parent families what are you talking about :/

    You keep changing it from " Two gay dads " to " Two dads ".... stop

    It's two gay dads.

    I was bullied as a child for being in a single parent family Friends bullied for wearing glasses, not having money theres a whoel host of things children can be nasty thats why as parents you must teach the child to deal with it, so why dont you agree in gay people adopting? and there isnt much difference between two dads, and two gay dads, you know I mean gay dads lol

    As long as the guys want children it would be fine.
    I remember watching a Parent Swap USA episode and it was between a Bible belt fanatical couple and a gay Californian couple - of course the gay couple were infinitely better parents and their two kids were both girls.

    The very fact that children may get bullied over it highlights a stigma that needs to be eradicated; not adhered to.

    Justifying a taboo by pointing out that it's stigmatised is the most backwards, anti-progressive thinking I can possibly imagine. Thank **** not everyone is like you or we would still be living in the dark ages.

    Funny coming from a muslim.
    I'm not Muslim bruv.

    Even so I don't see how that would be funny. Muslim communities don't have family set-ups of two dads or a dog and a man or a boar and a cat or whatever other perverted orientations you wish to categorise as a 'alternative'.

    I would be reluctant to call 'honour killings' 'Muslim' brah.. murder of family - can't really get less Islamic than that I know that much. "He who takes the life of one it is as if he has taken the life of all of mankind."

    Are you telling me you are born gay? LoL ok.
    Well, nobody's quite determined what the influential stages in sexual orientation development are. Regardless, I never made a conscious decision with regards to my sexuality.

    I'm not saying you CANT live . Im sure many families live with only one parent. But that doesn't mean that it's ok to dismiss the other parent as unnecessary
