I see the resident troll now has help in the guise of Anti-FSTDT
"The needs of the kids trumps your preferences over what a family should look like."
The NEEDS of the kid include a biological family with a mother and father figure, especially since girls and boys need to both have a role model of their own sex so they develop into women and men easier.
There is no research to back up your claim. Please try again.
The idea that genders are entirely interchangeable and superficial is foolish at best, a utopian expectation.
That's not how gender or same sex attraction works.
Biological parents are also far more likely to actually care for their children and less likely to abuse them.
If that was the case with all biological parents, there wouldn't be a need for adoption agencies, foster care, or child protective services.
If you don't believe me, you can watch the news of strangers dying all the time and tell me if you lost any sleep over it.
You will probably be disturbed, but let's face it, unless it's your own flesh and blood dying, you won't lose sleep over it.
I can see that easily being applies to you troll, but not to the entirety of humanity
When that biological family becomes an impossibility due to deaths, prison sentences, abuse etc. it makes sense that the foster parents will mimic a functional biological family as much as possible, that includes 1 man, 1 woman, married.
Again, there is no research that you are correct. In fact, the research out there says the opposite.
It is not homophobic to prefer straight couples in adoptions cases over gay couples, just as it is not "singlephobic" to prefer straight couples to single people trying to adopt. (And I'm a single person saying that, but I guess I just hate myself or something, what foolishness.)
I say you're foolish, but not in the way you think.
That's not to say single people and gay couples should be entirely excluded, but their whims are not necessarily what's best for the child.
But you're single and have no clue what is best for a child. You even said that yourself.
If you want to claim an unalienable right to be a parent, make your own children. You are not however automatically entitled to other people's children.
Ok Jerry Jr., I have news for you. I was never able to have children. Does that mean I deserve not to adopt? Does that also limit infertile couples to adopt children because they can't make their own. If you say no, then you sir are a complete and utter doucheknocker and a hypocrite.
The state is the temporary guardian until a suitable home is found.
Which can easily be found not only among heterosexual married couples, but same sex couples and single people.
