There is no scientific evidence that parenting effectiveness is related to parental sexual orientation: lesbian and gay parents are as likely as heterosexual parents to provide supportive and healthy environments for their children (Patterson, 2000, 2004; Perrin, 2002; Tasker, 1999); See the full resolution on the Sexual Orientation, Parents, & Children webpage.

Many people are born to be Hetero, and harassed and intimidated into thinking they "just must be homosexual," only because it fits someone else's selfish Agenda. Never what is spiritually right and correct for that individual.
That's the part of the equation the apologizers always leave out: the vicious predation.

Another good point...
I'd be interested to know - even if it was only 1,000,000 we'd still be less than 1% - we'd be about 1/10th of a percent or something.
Why am I so worried about gay parent... forget that flammadraco, I have now become more worried with your ablility to read and understand information. I have written many words in this thread as to why I am worried about Gay parenting, I t is truly beyond my comprehension as to how you have not come across those words.
ETA: fatherless children represent:
63% of teen suicides
70% of juveniles in state institutions
71% of high school dropouts
75% of children in chemical abuse centers
80% of rapists
85% of youths in prison
90% of homeless and runaway children
I have seen this first hand, with peoples from all walks of life.
The real issue is the mother? the question is why are YOU blaming the mother, I didn't bring the mother's parenting into this. I said fatherless children, and presented stats.
As for the 20 million more kids being gay, I have no idea what you are talking about. It hurts my head just reading your dribble drabble.
I'm definitely a proponent of gay not being a choice but a result of upbringing and the environment one is brought up in - father figures, mother figures, non-nuclear family - lots of variables. “and14263”
There is a definite effect on the nature of the child's psyche when the child is brought up in single sex parent family (and single parent family) “and14263”
I have eleven brothers and sister and we were all bought up in the same way so if what you are saying I shouldn't be gay as my up bringing was exactly the same as my other 5 brothers. Can you explain this to me then please?
It is impossible that you and your siblings grew up the same way, the variables involved are deeper than you make them out to be. All could be treated differently, in subtle or obvious ways by the parents, other members of the extended family like cousins or aunts, plus you don't know how your siblings felt inside when something was done or said directly or indirectly at them. My point is your sibling will most certainly have experienced life differently to you, despite all of you growing up together.

Sorry - to add - 8.74 million species in the world and you're claiming 1500 has a level of significance?
That's 0.017162471395881007 % of species.
Actually I was wrong - it's 7.77mil which is 0.019% of these display gay behaviour.
