  1. You gotta be kidding! And straight couples don’t molest their children? even their biological children? what a bunch of crock!

  2. You have got to be kidding me…Are you saying that children of alcohic parents are fed Beer from infancy cause that’s just the way!!

  3. Have you checked the statistics. Most molesters are straight grandfathers going after their children grandchildren. Keep an eye on your husband~~

    My abuser was a straight man!!! Your proof comes from a biased organization. You need to open up your mind – especially since you consider yourself to be a representative of the people you serve. Obviously not all of the people.

  5. Contrary to the views expressed in the comments section, PinkNews.co.uk does not believe that gay parents abuse their children. We are simply reporting the views of Ms Maggart. It is up to her electorate to make the own views on this issue clear to her when she seeks re-election.Benjamin Cohen, Editor

    Odd how much Representative Maggart looks like Joan Crawford – – Did someone scream “NO METAL HANGERS” ?

  7. I’m a straight female. (I guess that’s important to mention, for whatever reason.) I found the photo of the two guys and the little girl to be one of the best family portraits I’ve ever seen. They look so happy, especially the little girl. A family should be about love and security.It’s my experience that gay men make great parents (I know quite a few). I would never feel weird about leaving my son with any of my friends that are gay. In fact, I would probably go to them before half of the straight couples I know. This is sad filth spewing from the mouths of the uneducated. People are people. Molesters come in all shapes and sizes and genders, though they are generally straight males, aged 25 to 65. Mine was. My husbands straight brothers molested him regularly. This is ridiculous tripe.

    EVEN THERE ARE , homesexuals (and not, AND LESBIAN THAT I KNOW, ) that molest kids …. (cause , unfortunately, anyone can hurt kids ) its rare, a “father” that is gay, molest is son .. Im sure, there are … of coure but, its rare

  10. I am under the impression that a girl is and is created to be feminine. That may be hard for a young girl to see if she is raised by gay men who may not encourage her to be attractive to the opposite sex. You may say that she should choose, and ultimately she does; but obviously anyone can be influenced, and espcially young children. Just look at the way humans and other mammals reproduce—through straight female-male sex!!! I am not trying to be rude but even if you are not a God-believing person, there is obviously a reason we ar this way. It appears to me that woman is made for man and man for women.
