I ask this AFTER writing my hub on a similar topic (Teenagers of Same-Sex Parents Developing Normally), but I'm looking to write another on the views of people and those who are SS parents. So, can SS parents raise children? Why? Why Not? What are your opinions? Spirited Discussion will be acceptable, abuse will not - you are entitled to your opinion, but so is everyone else. (Also - incorrect statements eg Paedophillia etc will be called out - you are to talk about why you think they can/can't but not accuse a group of people of criminal activities) GO!

Jonny - thank you for your respectful answer/comment to Baja.
I would like to keep it simple. If I need to explain "Natural" I would say that our reproduction organs are not ment for SS use, so this implicate parents are only different sex combination. That's just a physical view, not to mention emotional one
Baja - just a thought - are children concerned about how their parents have sex? From what I recall no one likes to think their parents do anything of the sort!
I ask this respectfully though, would like to see the answer
Vlorsutes - thank you for your thorough answer. Most of the studies I have found agree with you. And whilst personal opinion of people may differ, it is when it is put down in quantifiable terms that it matters. Thank you for this
I like the point you make about a single parent. It's a simple one but one that I hadn't considered. If we're okay with one woman or man, why not two, indeed. jlpark's question certainly got us all thinking!
Ibur - can you provide this study so we can see it? I'd really like to read the study you mention so I can write this hub. Thanks for your answer.
It's from Baylor University in Texas. A lot of people weren't happy with the study so another college is doing the same study but larger to see if there are similar results.
Cool - thanks. Ill check it out.
Baja - thank you for your comments. You make several statements as 'fact' which require just a little more information - would you care to elaborate on your statements further? Just so we understand where you are coming from without misunderstanding
Please read my last sentence. Maybe would better understand my point.
That is what I meant - Baja. You make statements of fact - can you please provide more information - for example - where this fact comes from? I ask this of most people where they've said something I need clarification on for my hub.
Maybe some hub appear on this subject, internet is full of different types of studies on this issue.
So you don't know where you got such facts from? The reason I ask is that in order to make such a statement you would need proof behind it. Studies I've read say the opposite so seeing yr source would give me both sides on the issue.
Marsei - thanks though I am not sure that its the one Baja read! Thanks!
I would like to be pointed to an article that states that the children of same sex parents are more likely than the children of heterosexual couples to have extreme deviation in personality. I'm waiting as it's stated as fact, not opinion.
Some very sensible questions asked in this article....
Marsei - very good points.
Jonny - interesting article.
Thank you for your thoughtful answer.
Communication is a key regardless of gender of parents. If you don't talk, it doesn't work. Are there any studies that you have read that agree with you?
