    I raised 2 kids mostly with my male partner. A boy and a girl. Even with 2 gay Dads my son turned out Straight, he didnt make a choice to be straight, he said he just knows hes straight. My daughter is unsure, shes keeping all options open.

    You can't catch gay, it doesn't happen that way.

    As i don't recognise 'same sex marriage' i can't really comment, but it does seem unlikely.

    I don't believe the premise that children derive their sexual identity from their parents, whom are not sexual entities in their mind. If they did derive the interests of their parents, there wouldn't be any homosexuals as they don't reproduce.

    That argument is well taken; and is supporting the idea that gay parents would not necessarily influence ordinary children to be gay in later years. I believe this is the answer, then, gay parents could raise children without influencing their sexual orientation. Do you agree?

    Indeed I agree.

    I wont say they certainly don't have any influence. Yet I wont say they certainly do have an influence.

    I think this is certainly an area to avoid absolutes.

    I would assume it's about the same as kids of heterosexual parents being straight. Really, it's determined by DNA so I kind of think it just depends on the person.

    I was raised in 3 different homes. I was raised in a home where there was a stepfather present, I was raised in a home with a single father and I was also raised in a home with an elderly couple who didn't share a bed together. Believe it or not the whole time I was growing up I never asked many questions about any of those living arrangements. Each one seemed pretty normal to me.

    This is a tough one. hmmmmm I'll say yea. if you raise a killer around killers i think he'll be more likely to become a killer

    But what if you raise a priest around killers, does he too go on to kill?
  • Rainon Gir 2013/02/25 06:32:05

    In my opinion yes. A priest is nothing but a title.

    Fair enough, I put it to you though that ones sexual identity is far more than just a title. I imagine that I could not gain an interest in putting a penis in my mouth or rectum simply because someone told me it was OK.

    Just as I hold that homosexuals derive no pleasure from "straight" intercourse, even though they are raised to prefer it.

    Yes, I suppose it does. The normal kids see what same-sex marriage did for them--and they turn away from it... they reject same-sex living arrangements... they want a soft, gentle, loving, sweet talking female for a wife and mother of his children.

    Not something I would encourage, at the very least these kinds of relationships lack sexual balance!

    Put them in an environment where its being pumped into them all the time (pun intended) and the incidence will increase.

    Seriously? You think if you had been raised around a group of homosexuals, you would prefer the sausage to the taco? I feel I never made a choice in that regard, I have always been attracted to girls and always been turned off by the thought of intimate male contact.

    You would have been easily swayed towards the sausage huh?

    What exactly are you defining as an incidence? If you mean a single sexual encounter, then I may buy that. But sexual identity is not derived from our parents. The thought of ones parents having sex should be repulsive. Thus they should have little influence over your sexual identity which is formed by ones peers.

    Like this.
    Discussion + Sex + Parents = Uncomfortable
    Discussion + Sex + Peers = Interesting

    It is far easier to argue that one forms their sexual identity from their peers. This again is assuming that a sexual identity is something you form and not something you have.

    Your view about nurture over nature in this discussion is correct--but there could be cases the other way around, in my opinion, for I have read some psychology books about the matter of nature over nurture. Our society is overwhelmingly heterosexual in all it's daily displays, so how could anyone chose otherwise? It must have something to do with nature--in the genes.
