I'm from a country where neither of those things are legal (atleast not yet), though I still believe my country is a good place for lgb people and the law does allow civil unions.
From what I've noticed (and it's also kinda obvious), most lgb people tend to argue in favour of legalising same sex marriages and in favour of same sex couples adopting children.
I wonder what is your guys opinion on the topic, because the truth is the more I think about it the more I kinda fail to see the need for same sex marriages. I'm in a happy long term relationship but don't exactly see what would I need marriage for if I can still get into a civil union with my bf.
And the adoptions are kind of a controversial topic to me because I'm not convinced that same sex couples raising a kid can't mess the kid up.
People might bring up that since single parenting is normalised in our society, so why shouldnt the same be true for same sex couples. But somehow I still think the two cases are pretty different.
Also, I'm not exactly in favour of surrogacy and if anything believe actual adoption to be the more moral choice. But even then by adopting an orphan you are still taking away from them the chance of being adopted by a normal couple.
Anyway, I'm kinda curious if there are people with the same opinions as me and if not I'm still curious to hear yours, maybe change my mind.
