As a father who has raised his children since birth I of course find fault in this question. Gay does not mean lack of parenting skills nor that we will somehow corrupt our children adopted or biological. My children were with me with I had a wife and have been with me since I got a partner ten years ago. They love him as a caregiver and parental figure. I adore my children and keep them as my center when I make decisions concerning my life. I have three teenagers all getting good grades, no drugs, no jail, as they are well-adjusted individuals. To deny a needy child a parental figure on the basis of their sexuality is no different than telling someone they can not drink from a fountain because of the color of their skin.
