I don't see what my grammar has to do with hetero/homosexuals raising children. Besides, isn't it hypocritical to point out bad sentence structure on my part while you're preaching it with a run-on sentence?
I'm not arguing that homosexuals are better capable of being parents. I'm simply saying that some homosexuals would surely make better parents than some of the heterosexuals I know. At the sime time, the opposite is true in other cases. The fact is that anyone has a right to be a parent and anyone has a right to whatever orientation they choose [without this being taken out of context]. Heterosexuals make bad and good parents depending on the person. Homosexuals make bad and good parents depending on the person. Homosexuals are people just like any heterosexual; the only difference in their life to anyone else's life is who they choose to sleep with. That has nothing to do with the amount of love and dedication they would have in raising their children.
"trying to make a case for how simply being homosexual might make one a better parent than a heterosexual." - Just like everyone who is heterosexual and prejudice is trying to make a case for how simply being homosexual might make one a >worse< parent than a heterosexual? Reasoning is always fair when you balance the equation.
I'm sorry if you took my comment as a critique. I didn't intend it to be so.
Clearly, I am guilty of grammatical errors myself and don't hold anyone to a standard that I can't achieve.
It did seem, though, that you were making the case that because homosexuals are perforce more open minded than heterosexuals, that they would make better parents as far as open mindedness is highly valued.
That's why I asked the question.
If you're saying your not making the case, that's fine with me.
I'm sure some people are making the argument that all homosexuals make bad parents simply because they are homosexual, and clearly there are homosexuals who, by every common standard, are 'better people" than some heterosexuals, but all other things being equal, is it better for children to be raised by heterosexual, rather than homosexual, parents?
