    I hope this doesn't offend anyone, but I only know one kid raised by gay parents, and he is seriously messed up.
    He's the child of one of the mothers, who was caught cheating on her husband with this other woman.

    I've only met him three times, and each time have gotten the distinct impression that he's being punished for being a straight boy.

    The first time I met him, it was a birthday bbq at his parent's house, he was probably...9? Maybe a short 10. We got the tour of the house and what I assumed was a spare bedroom was his bedroom, pink bedspread, cream carpet and pink walls, pink furniture and butterfly decals on the walls. The lady who wasn't his mother, I'll call her 'B', said they don't support patriarchal gender slavery, so they decorated his room for him.

    Second time was helping them move {they're friends of my dad}, the kid was about 11 this time, I was 14. He shook my hand and his mother, 'A', slapped his hand and nastily told him not to overdo it "with the other side".
    I didn't get it at that point, but it dawned on me when I was much older that she meant don't have too much contact with straight females.

    Last time, they were at my dad's christmas party. I was on the verge of 18, so he must have been 15 or maybe 14. They gave him a spa voucher, and he cried in front of everyone and said he hated them.
    Later 'A' was quite tipsy and told everyone at the outside table that she'd tried to make him gay but he was turning into a foul straight man, then joked about how if only "beating it out of them" worked, she'd have tried that, and if he had kids with a woman she'd disown him.

    That's my sole experience with a child raised by same-gender parents, and it was as bad as having your first experience with a dog end with a mauling.

    The kid would be in his mid-20's now and god I hope he made it out of there with his sanity intact. They both despised straight men so much that they turned all their hatred and vindictiveness onto an innocent child, and tried to force him into something he wasn't.

    Sad ... Really proves there can be horrible abusive parents on both sides the fence

    Considering gay people are just ordinary people who happen to prefer the same sex then it stands to reason there are good and bad parents, just like straight people.

    Was just thinking this.

    I know a few children of same sex parents and a few same sex parents. All pretty run of the mill families. I don't tend to analyze their actions based on their sexuality.

    Yeah they just sound like awful people and terrible parents, which their sexuality has no bearing on.
