I know the PC's will hate this, but shouldn't this be obvious to anyone with an ounce of common sense? I guess if I were to take anything from this study it would be that I'd probably be very carefull about allowing lesbians to adopt. If the study is correct their influence is much more exteme in promoting homosexuality than it is with gay men.

Damn it, I effed up, can one of the mods edit the title to state "gay" kids?!
Okay, explain to me why "promoting homosexuality" is a bad thing? You have some sort of religious motivation behind this? Or is this just a matter of, but they will pick on the poor kid? Just trying to get an idea of where you stand on this.

Uh because you disagree with it? Usual leftist approach, if you disagree with the premise you dismiss the research without thought or consideration as to the actual content or conclusions.

You can claim that being gay or straight is an inborn thing, that a person can't be influenced to be something they're not, and to a large degree you'd be right, but not entirely. And that's where this topic starts and can lead to reasonable conversation among reasonable people.

but we cannot have a reasonable discussion among reasonable people. discussion in an open forum is tantamount to facism. you bring up an interesting topic for conversation, but, by doing that, you are a) a bigot b) a homophobe c) a self-loathing homosexual d) all of the above.
if we can have these conversations, which many that are not gay, and are looking for understanding of being gay, then there will/should be more acceptance of being gay. is that not the point?
many that do not agree with being gay, per se, but don't want to be hateful to others, and infringe on their rights, are looking for answers. as i am. i do so for many reasons, and have/am trying to figure out exactly how things fit. my philosophy may change, with open discussion, and gaining further knowledge. but this, you can't question or say anything, because your'e an obvious bigot crap needs to stop. that kind of thing, makes it more likely that those that are willing to change their minds on things of this nature, won't.
