Is the sexual orientation of gay parents harmful to their children?

Resources used to support "yes."

Sexual orientation of a parent is critical to the up-bringing of a child. Society is based on the ideal of having heterosexual parents and it goes against values for same-sex parents to raise children. Having homosexual parents is also a major stressor for a child due to society's norms and values - it can cause embarrassment and abnormal feelings. Children who are raised in "alternative family lifestyles" are more likely to engage in drugs and negative feeling towards their parents and themselves than children raised by normal families.
