On February 7, Slovaks will be asked three questions:

 

1. Do you agree that only a bond between one man and one woman can be called marriage?

2. Do you agree that same-sex couples or groups should not be allowed to adopt and raise children?

3. Do you agree that schools cannot require children to participate in education pertaining to sexual behaviour or euthanasia if their parents don’t agree?

 

As a Pole I can't vote, but I would say No, Yes and Yes. Here's a video made by people who are slight more radical and vote three Yes:

 

 

Translation:

 

"Here are your new parents"

 

"Where's mom?"

 

From the votes on Youtube video, I think that slighty more people would probably vote three yes. I also like one of the comments: "Everyone talks about the rights of LGBTs, but what about the rights of children?"

=Didn't read the question=


People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered. Love them anyway. 
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good anyway. 
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. 
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. 
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway. 
The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds. Think big anyway. 
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs. Fight for a few underdogs anyway. 
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. 
People really need help but may attack you if you do help them. Help people anyway. 
Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway.

A couple of issues with this one (i know it's not your comment Kemotx don't worry)

 

  1. Children in almost ever case, don't pick their parents, so arguing this is against the child's rights is a bit B.S in my opinion
  2. Is a loving gay couple worse than an abusive/fighting/divorced straight couple
  3. "Wheres Mummy" is not any cause for concern for our gay couple, this Child likely knows that Mum+Dad is the standard family layout and is confused, not because he inherently disagrees with gay adoption (hes too young to make a philosophical decision like that) 
  4. Pretty much every study says that gay couples are not any worse than straight ones, so why not

The only possible argument against LGBT rights, including marriage/adoption/whatever is blatant bigotry and homophobia/transphobia/whatever. Trying to hide that behind imaginary issues with phrases like "think of the children!" is disgusting.

I love how they think gay people look. Beards, hipster clothing, slicked back hair.

Sidenote. Slovak language is amazingly similar to Russian: "prishli tvoi novye rodichi... a gde mama?". Initially, i didn't even realize it was a foreign clip...

Why no to gay adoption?

 

Because of "and where's mom?" question from this clip... children should be raised in normal (biologically) families. This right is much more important than right of gays to adopt them only to feel yourself "usual family with children".

 

PS and no, i'm not going to enter into long debates.

What a child needs is to be raised by people who will love them, care for them, cater to all their important needs, educate them about the world, and be a positive role model to help them grow into a healthy and functional adult. Last I checked, these are completely gender-neutral concepts.

See this ...etc

 

Imagine you're the adopted child. if you have mom and dad, they can successfully hide this fact from you, till you reach 15-18 years old. Now imagine you're 10 years old & the only person in your class who have two "dads"... should i explain what will happen & how you will be treated by classmates? So...

In a civilised country, there wouldn't be any problem. Besides, you answered "no" to the third question, which means that you agree that schools should explain homosexuality to children.
