Of course we have greater issues, but that's a topic always worth talking about. Coincidentally, I just held a presentation + following group discussion in university about that topic plus same sex adoption. Most of us (I'm from Germany) were absolutely in favor of gay marriage & same sex child adoption. only 2-3 people were against it, bringing up reasons like 'It's not natural...' (ridiculous, in my opinion!). We also found lots of shocking material for our presentation! It was just disgusting, like a video from a man of an higher rank (not too high really, can't rememer in detail) who went on how it was not natural to be gay and if - ya'll got your popcorn?? - they would legalize gay marriage this would lead to people wanting to MARRY ANIMALS! Can you believe that?!
I mean, like, people that think THAT wicked WAY are bound to having made love to some sheep already... Jesus Christ!
em.hancy: It is allowed for a gay couple to adopt a child, but only in a few countries and states, in the US it's basically like the East and West Coast you have to imagine. When we were looking up Australia in our statistical part we actually didn't find material neither on marriage nor on adoption... In Germany, it's not legal yet. There are also some wicked laws in the US that allow a gay couple to adopt a child - but only if they're married. Which, especially in these states, isn't legalized yet. Dumb world..
