It damages the children, says Dale O'Leary, author of "One Man, One Woman: A Catholics Guide to Defending Marriage." She says that all children have a natural desire for a parent of each gender.
But children of same-sex couples are forced to repress that desire because their parents won't accept it, she says. Their parents won't acknowledge their children's needs because they don't want to admit that they have caused their children to suffer.
"A baby is not a trophy -- the child's welfare has to be considered," she says. "These children are more likely to experiment with same-sex relationships. They're more likely to be confused and hurt."
O'Leary says she doesn't personally know any same-sex parents or their children.
I could sit in my bedroom and make up theories about people I don't know too. And if your parents' sexual orientation dictated your own, how do heterosexual couples produce gay children?
What a moron.

I do agree that children (male and female) look for male and female role models in their lives. Traditionally this has been the mother and father. That's not to say that kids from divorced homes with say a dead beat dad haven't figured out how to idolize another male to fill the gap. Kids are pretty resilient little buggers. They'll figure it out.

I don't know many gay couples with children, but of the few that I do, I can't name one that isn't aware of the importance of providing both male and female role models for the children, whether it be their close friends or family members who serve as aunts and uncles, etc.
