Am i HomophobicWatch
Children can be cruel, but I wouldn't say potential bullying is a good enough reason for a child to not be placed in a same-sex home.
I have no problem with gay people or marriage but a friend asked me my opinion on gay people adopting and i said they shouldn't because of the child being bullied for having gay parents and she said i was homophobic....im not sure if she will tell people and they will ***** about me but i feel really horrible....i haven't seen her since but i have a lesson with her tomorrow...any advice???
i mean that it takes time for attitudes to change...........idk.......................i don't have a strong opinion about it put im more towards the side of them not adopting :/
attitudes have already changed, hence it being deemed absolutely fine for gay people to adopt. It's your attitude that needs to change. Do you really think a child in the social care system is better off? Have you ever met someone who's lived in care?
Im sorry if i have offended you.....its just a topic im not sure about like i see both sides but to her i just said one side and im worried she now hates me
you haven't offended. You've given answers I would have expected from someone who's im assuming around 14/15yrs old?
She won't hate you, but the fact that you're worried should make you think about your views and whether they need to be altered don't you think?
yea i know what you mean and im 17 :/ its just one of those things im indecisive about but lean more to one side....yea i will probs start to change my views having researched it and stuff....i just hope she doesnt make me out to be a homophobe
let me a paint a picture.
Imagine you weren't wanted by your mother and she put you up for adoption. Unfortunately no one wanted you so you spent your childhood with no one loving you, moving from care home to foster home back to care home where your only interaction with adults was through care workers and social workers-not very nice eh?
Orrrr your mother puts you up for adoption. Two people of the same gender desperately want to give love and devotion to a little boy or girl and raise them in a home that unconditionally adores them so they adopt you-congrats!. Yes there maybe stigma as both parents are the same gender but atleast you have a stable and loving home. And two parents who will get you through anything.
Which sounds better?
yea i know the same sex couple does sound like a better lifestyle.....im not sure about my opinion now when you put it like that.......i dont know what to do at school tho.....im really worried people will think im homophobic and ***** and be mean about it
