Hello beautiful people,
a few days ago I had a long discussion with my parents, which dealt with LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) adoption. After the news from the USA latley, you will probably all know what LGBT means. If you haven't watched any news, I will shortly explain what happened. The USA declared same-sex marriage legal in the whole USA. This was a huge step for the equality of same-sex couples and I can say that this made me very happy for all couples that are now finally able to get married.

One thing though, that is still not legal everywhere for LGBT couples is to adopt children. It is currently legal in 21 countries and also in some small terretories.
Personally I think that this is already a huge amount of countries, but in my opinion more countries should legalize the LGBT adoption. In this post here I'm going to share my opinion on this kind of adoption with you. I really hope that you agree with me because in the end we are all the same and the world should get more tolerant.

Whenever I had this discussion with friends or family, one of the arguments against the adoption was that the children could get bullied. Also the parents from the other children could forbid their children to play with this child because of the parents.
Okay, so I partly agree with that. I also think that there are people who wouldn't want their children to be with kids from LGBT couples. Some people are just not that tolerant and would have someh´thing against those couples. On the other side this would teach kids from a young age to be more tolerant towards people that maybe seem different. I don't think that this argument should be the one to stop legalizing the LGBT adoption.
For sure it could be that the kids get bullied. But if I could e.g. choose between living in an orphanage, in a violent family or in a family that loves me and cares about me, I would choose living in a loving and caring family.

Those families using domestic violence are (mostly) allowed to have children but not the ones who would care about their kids, just because they aren't "normal".

This is probably what bothers me the most about this whole situation. Who says that LGBT couples would be bad parents. Or more specific: Who says that they would be worse parents than any other couple. In my opinion they would be better parents than some others. I don't say that all of them would be better or something, I just don't think that all of them would be worse. (I don't know if you understand what I just said. Sometimes my sentences can be a little confusing. Sorry.)


My opinion is that this adoption should be legalized everywhere. I wouldn't mind living in such a family and I don't think that it is wrong in any way. Maybe some people say that the world is not ready for this, but we will never know if the world is ready for this if we don't try it.
There have already been so many changes in the past years and we should all agree that we are all equal. There is nothing wrong with who you love and just because you feel like living in the wrong body or because you're homo-/ or bisexual, nobody should see you as different. We are who we are and we can't change that.

Love who you love and don't let people judge you because of that.

Well, this is my opinion on LGBT adoption. What do you think about it? Do you agree with me or do you think it shouldn't be legalized?
I would love to have a discussion with you down below in the comments.

I will hopefully talk to you very soon,

P.S.: This post contains my own opinion, which doesn't mean that it is right or that it's not okay to have another opinion on this topic. If there are any important informations I haven't mentioned then be sure to tell me in the comments. Also if any of my sentences sound kind of 'wrong', I'm very sorry. I didn't want to offend anyone by what I wrote. I would love to get some feedback about your opinion.

  1. LGBT people deserve all the same rights as straight people. If an LGBT couple wants to lovingly bring a child into their family, they should be allowed to. And adoption is a long and complicated process--applying for adoption shows that a couple is really committed to raising a child.

    Thank you for this post.

  2. I'm not all up to date with the LGBT same-sex marriage because I was out of the country when they made the announcement, but it's honestly been something that I have been exposed to since I was young because where I was born, same-sex marriages were pretty common and normal.

    I really dislike when adults do tend to discourage their kids to not play with those who's parents belong in the rainbow community. They're people too, and they shouldn't be treated any differently.

    xoxo Morning

    1. Thank you. I agree with you and I think that this way the children can never discover things themselves. Maybe it doesn't matter to them if somebody's parents are, as you said, form the rainbow community. It's great that you grew up with same-sex marriages being something normal because I think it should be normal to everyone, everywhere :)
