I used to be against gay marriage and adoption much more than I am now, right now I couldn't care less if marriage was allowed, in fact, I do slightly support it. Just don't expect me to attend any rallies or anything.
My main beef with gays is that there has been a suitable solution to the marriage problem put on the table but the homosexuals refused even that. That solution is legal unions. It would offer all the same legal rights and everything else that marriage offers, just under a different name. This should make both sides happy as the religious ones get to keep their marriage (which technically is their domain) within their ideals, and homosexuals still get all the benefits of a normal marriage.
Still, aside from that fact I support gay marriage. However, adoption is still something I'm on the fence about. Whether you want to admit it or not, being raised by two gay parents will make a child's life much harder. Think of the schoolground reprocutions alone. People were singled out and made fun of daily, had little friends, ect, simply because of unfounded sayings that people were gay or because they were a little weird. My elementary school was a battlefield, and high school wasn't much better. If this kid brought any friends home, and it was found out he had two gay parents, the social repercussions would be life changing. And don't give me any crap about changing the other kids to be more accepting, because that's just a dream, young kids will always single out the different, just as bad if not much worse than some of the worst adults. It's not possible to socially condition kids to be different over short periods of time, maybe in a generation or two be can start to have a significant change to that, but 40 years or so is a long time to wait.
I don't care at all about possibilities of those kids becoming gay themselves, but kid being raised by two dads or moms would have a major impact on his life.

As for you "Plesekillme"...this is a debate forum...but with comments such as yours I'd be happy to kick your head against a curb if you'd like. You don't have to be homosexual to know science you ignorant prick.
This is where I wished I saved that .GIF from the curb stomp in American History X.
We'll, I found a youtube clip.
