As we see more letters being added to the acronym, we also see more rights acquired by those of the LGBTQ+ community. There are a few things that those in this community want for “equality,” but how far will we allow their movement to destroy our society? Many believe that those in the LGBTQ+ community should even have the same rights as straight couples to adopt and raise children as their own, but I stand strongly on the opposing side of this line of thinking.
A poll shows that 81 percent of the 1,295,570 who answered believe that gay couples should have the same adoption rights as straight couples. Of the 19 percent who were naysayers, only 2 percent said no because they believe a mother and father structure is best for the child. Only one percent said they believe that adoption agencies should prioritize straight couples over gay couples. Although this poll only asked for their opinion on gay adoption rights, I would like to expand that out to those who are transgender or identify with the LGBTQ+ community.
I would go further than most and argue that for a good society, we should not allow those in this community to have adoption rights at all. Procreation is something that can only be done between male and female, so why would you deserve the right to benefit from something that you biologically reject? This doesn’t mean that those who are gay, trans or queer should be treated with any hatred or disrespect, rather with love and understanding. My reasoning for not giving the same adoption rights to those in the LGBTQ+ community is one of logic and reasoning and recognizing that a home with a mother and father figure is the best for children and our future society.
Mothers and fathers both have a specific role that cannot be fulfilled by the other. They are both special in a child’s life in their own way and a child needs the support from both parents physically, emotionally and socially. First, I would like to point out the importance of a father in a child’s life, then discuss a mother’s unique importance.
Fathers are viewed as more authoritative and better at laying down rules for children. They also give a sense of physical security to the home in a child’s life. A loving father is also proven to greatly affect their children‘s cognitive and social development in the sense that they give them a greater sense of self-confidence. In terms of relationships, fathers set the bar for relationships with others in their children’s lives.
For daughters, the father shows her what a good relationship with a man looks like and for sons, they help structure how they will treat others in their own relationships. When the father is absent, children will look to other male figures around them to base these relationships off of those such as celebrities, sports figures or other male figures that are present in their childhood.
Mothers are equally important for children, but in some ways more important than a father because of the emotional connection she shares with her children. Think about why a mother nurtures a baby inside her womb for 9 months and not the father. The universe has bestowed the responsibility of a child primarily on the mother. She is the first person the child knows in their life.
Mothers also understand their children the most and have a lifetime connection with them which brings a better understanding of the child than a father, probably because of the connection in the child bearing process. Children usually have a better trust with their mother than a father because of a love that she offers that can’t be explained by a man. She knows how to be loving, yet stern at the same time, in a way that we, as men, have a hard time understanding. Where fathers offer more of a physical security, mothers offer a child more of an emotional security in their relationship.
This balance can’t be made in a gay parent household. The argument against transgender parents could be simply made by showing the psychological imbalance that is shown in their lives. Gender dysphoria is something that most trans people suffer from which is a fundamental unease and dissatisfaction with the biological sex one is born with which results in anxiety, depression, restlessness and other symptoms like these. Post transition issues such as disappointment with the procedure not solving the problems they thought they would, dissatisfaction in appearance and other emotional issues that are tied into the ones previously mentioned.
Seeing what the LGBTQ+ community has been doing to our society, I believe that it would be best for our future society not to allow those in this movement to be parenting our children to further what they have started. Adoption should be saved for those who can raise children in a home with a good balance between father and mother figures. It is best for children physically, emotionally and socially to have this balance in their childhood.
