One of the issues that are argued everywhere in the United States of America the
most today is whether gay or lesbian couples should be allowed to adopt children. People
have different opinions on this kind of issue because some may think, for instance, that
child who is raised by gay parents will turn out gay, and so on. However, people
forget about children's happiness although they believe that children will be happier
with straight and "normal" people. Who said so? Why do people decide for a kid?
Also, how are straight couples are "normal" and gay couples are not? Some people
believe that children of gay parents will eventually turn out to be homosexual as well.
But no one just turns gay or lesbian, it's either way: you are gay or you are straight. Every
kid in an orphanage dreams about parents, any parents, as long as they are loved and
cared about. Gay and lesbian men should be able to adopt children everywhere no

there is no proof of that children who are raised by homosexual couple will turn gay.
Any child in condition without parents needs someone to take care of them.
Children are better off with actually growing up with real family and real parents. If it
comes to define what "real parents" mean, in my opinion, it is when parents love and
want and can take care of the child. Some people argue that children who are raised by
gay or lesbian couple will be unhappy because of their parents' sexual orientation. For
example, other kids at school will make fun of them because their parents are gay.
Although it is true and they will be made fun of in middle or even high school but they
are just kids. I think that once they grow up they eventually will get used to their parents'
choice and actually like it that way and be proud rather than ashamed. For instance,
although it is a bit different it has a point, in "Gay and Ready to Marry" by Suneel
Khanna, he talks about how...
