    I guess I am pro on both sides.

    -Why would I care about anyone getting married? If they want to, let them. Doesn't affect me.
    -Why would I care about anyone adopting a child? If they want to, let them. Doesn't affect me.

    People should do whatever they want unless they harm someone else.

    Don't care about marriage, against adoption. I believe children should have a female and a male role models. And it is important for them to learn with those two figures.

    why, tho? A lot of children grow up with only one of those figures (single-parents, half-orphan, etc.).

    Yes they do, and it is not the best infancy for them. That people will survive and move forward, and some of those people work for and reach a good position does not mean that it is the wanted or best thing

    Yes and yes on both.

    Firstly let people live happy, and if for that reason they can't procreate, adoption is definitely an option.
    I'd rather have good gay parents, instead of shitty hetero ones, or no parents at all.

    I am pro both, I am quite a simple person is this regard, as long as you don't overdo it I am okay with everything. :) (I mean that they can be who they are, as long as they don't bother me with it.)

    I believe that people should be able to be happy, regardless of the children or sexuality.

    This is basically my stance. :) Respect others and let them be happy!

    A bad infancy is not tied to the gender of the parents. I understand that being the child of a single parent is not something you'd want, but a child adopted by a gay couple still has two parents.
    However, I do feel like I unintentionally set up a strawman here by bringing in single-parent-children in the first place, so let me apologize and try to rectify this:

    If a child has two loving parents, why would their gender matter? What can a female/male couple offer a child that a male/male or female/female couple can't?

    Yes and yes.

    It's not the government's right to judge people based on sexual orientation. Look at it this way; marriage is the unification of two individuals for taxation and legal purposes. Boring definition is boring, but why then would it remotely matter what gender said people are? In other words, they're attempting to bring religious definitions of marriage in, which is unacceptable.

    As for adoption, you can adopt kids as a single parent, can't you? How would restricting adoption based on sexual orientation make sense? People adopt kids because they want to have kids and raise them as their own. A person's sexual orientation has absolutely nothing to do with parental aptitude.

    Fact of the day: The Epic of Gilgamesh implies a homoerotic relationship between Gilgamesh and Enkidu in the canonical interpretation of the texts. That's ancient mesopotamian literature written on stone tablets. It's older than dirt as well as the Bible for that matter.

    You'll have to explain why this is important then, because I can't say I understand why. Isn't the point of raising a child to teach them to stand on their two feet, to discover things for themselves (including what they want to do with their life) and to teach them to be a generally good person? You're supposed to set the child up for life and all that comes with it. I can't see how gender would affect any of that remotely. I don't think gender or sexual orientation has any effect on whether a person is bad at parenting.

    Give me a second to check what year it is. Oh its 2018 for a second there I thought I had time travelled back to the 1970s. The very fact that people are still discussing this blows my mind. Every single person in this world is the same. We are all human and we all deserve the right to be treated the same as each other with the same rights as each other.

    All I can say is thank god I live in Scotland where we treat each other the same and this discussion never happens.

    And sorry for this incoherent ramble. The fact people still feel the need to even bring this topic up gets me very angry. And when I'm angry I ramble lol.

    It shouldn't be called "gay" marriage.
    It should just be called marriage.

    Personally I find gays disgusting. Two dudes kissing each other turns my stomach. I would hate to think that any of my nephews or nieces for whatever reason if they needed to be adopted would end up in a household with two gays. As for lesbo's - they are just as bad as dudes.

    I'm not a fan of either - it's not what nature intends and as a christian it's against my values.

    Personally, I find straight people disgusting.
    A man and a woman kissing each other turns me stomach.

    I'm going to point out here that you never mentioned whether two girls kissing turns your stomach, just that you didn't like lesbians for some reason. I'm not sure I've ever met a guy who was bugged by that.

    "Not what nature intends" -- Okay buddy, you keep telling yourself that.

    I'm going to be honest - I don't think you would like to hear that as you would find my views very upsetting.
