So if I believed that I am Elizabeth Is the Queen of England I would be, at best, tagged as irrational and delusional. If I am a man who believes he is a woman, I am not delusioal. I am gay. Reminds me of a story. After God created human beings Satan scoffed and said he could do better. On the day of the demo, Satan scooped up a handful of dirt, at which point God says, "Dude! get your own dirt!"

Yes, but I think they should have to go through more of a thorough process to see if it is a good idea. I don't think every same-sex couple should be automatically permitted to adopt. Are they in a long-term, very stable and loving relationship? Are they going to provide a balanced view of the sexes - nothing wrong with being gay, but are they going to raise the child in a home that reveres both sexes. Are they adopting the child for the child's sake or for theirs?

Yes. There is no reason to believe that a child is better off with straight couples.
