Can two parents of the same sex raise children?


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!

    Thank you for your answer.

    Because you've explained it thoroughly, if there are any studies that you have noted - can you provide? If not, thanks for the thought you've put into this also.

    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

    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

    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.

    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?
