How could this information be used to answer your essential question? How does this evidence connect to your thesis? | “Gay parents “tend to be more motivated, more committed than heterosexual parents on average, because they chose to be parents,” said Abbie Goldberg, a psychologist at Clark University in Massachusetts who researches gay and lesbian parenting. Gays and lesbians rarely become parents by accident, compared with an almost 50 percent accidental pregnancy rate among heterosexuals, Goldberg said. That translates to greater commitment on average and more involvement” (Pappas). Gay parents should be able to adopt because they want to be parents. In society today, it does not really matter if you are married or not to have a child. Most young adults get pregnant and then get married. Gay parents are choosing to be parents. It can’t happen on accident because they are married to the same sex. Gay parents are more motivated to their children because they want to raise a happy and healthy environment for their kids. They are also showing their kids that they can be individuals and that being an individual is a good thing.
It shows that anyone who can be different should be proud of it. It’s rare for someone to be different and show it because society is so judgmental. | “And while research indicates that kids of gay parents show few differences in achievement, mental health, social functioning and other measures, these kids may have the advantage of open-mindedness, tolerance and role models for equitable relationships, according to some research. Not only that, but gays and lesbians are likely to provide homes for difficult-to-place children in the foster system, studies show” (Pappas).
Gays and lesbians provided a better home for children than heterosexual parents. Homosexual parents kids can be who they want to be in the household, without being judge. In many heterosexual homes, the kids want to make their parents proud so they try to be like them. Every child should be who they want to be. Gays are actually better role models for children because they took a stand to come out, get married, and raise a family. It shows the child that they can be whoever they want to be and they will always be proud of them. Since the children of gays have these role models, the child performs better in life.
This is because they are the new generation of society and aren’t afraid of being judge. | “Sixty percent of gay and lesbian couples adopted across races, which is important given that minority children in the foster system tend to linger. More than half of the kids adopted by gays and lesbians had special needs” (Pappas). | Homosexual parents are adopting children of all types of race and abilities. Heterosexual parents usually do not adopt children with a different race or special needs because they want their child to be like them. They want them as the same color skin, and playing sports.
Gays do not care if they are different because they are different. They look at everyone in the world as an equal individual. | “One 33-year-old man with a lesbian mother told Goldberg, “I feel I’m a more open, well-rounded person for having been raised in a nontraditional family, and I think those that know me would agree. My mom opened me up to the positive impact of differences in people” (Pappas). | This man was raised under a lesbian household. He is happy that his parents were not heterosexual because he got to see the world at a different angle.
He learned to accept others for who they are and not what they should be. He defeated society by not following it. This is because his mothers taught him that being different is a good thing. It shows others that it is okay to be different. | “This is a vote of pride,” said Thierry Mandon, speaking for the Socialist Party parliamentary group, “the pride of permitting the Republic to take a giant step toward equal rights and complete a battle of 30 years” (Cody). | Thierry Mandon believes that everyone should be equal. Gays and lesbians should be allowed to raise a family.
Thierry has respect for gays and lesbians wanted to raise a family. Who wouldn’t want to raise a child and watch them grow. He wants the battle of banning adoption in some states to end, which it will. Everyone deserves to raise a happy family and being that proud parent showing the world that they can achieve something too. | “PARIS — After months of philosophical debate and massive street demonstrations for and against, the French National Assembly on Tuesday authorized same-sex marriage and adoption by gay couples, despite France’s long history as a homeland for Roman Catholic tradition” (Cody). Gay and lesbian adoption is now starting be accepted in other parts of the world. Paris passed a law that gays and lesbians can now adopt and get married.
This is huge because Paris is so traditional. The fact that other countries are realizing that traditions change is a good thing. Now gays and lesbians all over the world can adopt in other countries. Gay and lesbian adoption should be accepted in all countries, which will happen in the future. | What questions do you still have about the topic? Are more countries going to pass the gay adoption law?
