    Ok, thanks.
    I dunno about that. In this day and age society doesn't expect or demand marriage. I honestly don't know anyone that married because it was expected.
    Food for thought though....

    There are some members here (or used to be?) with same-sex parents, and from memory, they haven't been upset with their childhoods because of their parents sexuality.

    I must say, kids will tease you about anything, and your parents being gay is just one small thing they could choose to target. If they're using your parents as a reason to tease, they might pick on you because your parents are fat, or poor, or are a bit nuts, or are too rich, or your mother's got great big fake tits, or your Dad is totally hot and all your friends want him, or they've got a big nose, or have an obvious birthmark or some other random thing.

    Pretty much nobody could have kids if you think of the things their kids might be teased of because of them. I can think of a bunch of things kids might find on me to tease my daughter about. It's not exactly a reason for her not to exist though.

    I think that you would find that the more GBLT people who have children the more it will be seen as 'normal' and the children would not be any more vulnernable to teasing then any other child.

    It was not long ago that children of single parents and from interracial relationships were picked on but that has all but disappeared (well for the single parent example anyway) as these family types have been accepted by society. The same will happen as GBLT families increase in number and no doubt marriage equality would speed this along.

    There is one member on here who speaks highly of her childhood and she was raised by same-sex parents I know a few same-sex couples raising kids and their kids don't get teased (they are also beautiful kids and very well adjusted).

    We are entering a new phase in society where it is no longer deemed as 'abnormal' as years gone by. I strongly believe that most children in my son's generation will not blink twice at such unions.

    Agree. I can't understand why it's even a question, it's blatant discrimination.
