“Dawn Stefanowicz, an author and speaker who was raised by her homosexual father, told LifeSiteNews that the incident highlights the dangers of placing children in “experimental family structures.”  She says children in such situations are prone to confusion about their sexuality and gender.”

“Gender identity, gender roles, and sexuality are often considered fluid and boundless in homosexual households, diminishing both the value and importance of our own birth gender as children,” she continued.She said that growing up in a household in which her father had sex with other men “deeply affected” her “sense of self as a girl and young woman.”“I felt rejected and not as important as the males in my life,” she explained. “I didn’t see a significant woman in my life – mother – being loved. This lead me to believe that maybe it would have been better to have been born a boy.”

It is sad that the children are the ones who suffer with the instability of moving back and forth from home to home, and they don’t have a stable set of parental examples in their lives.  However, I still feel that non-traditional families are detrimental to the growth and development of a child.  Children need good homes, and as Ms. Stefanowicz stated, situations like this put children in scenarios where they are prone to confusion about their sexuality and their gender roles not only in society but within their own home.  It’s dangerous.

    mmm..I don’t know. If this was a case of “you’re going to wear the dress!!” on the part of the foster parents, then it’s abuse. If this was a case of “aww, he decided to wear a dress and he’s six years old so it’s cute and we put it on Facebook!” that’s quite different, and there was no reason to remove him from a stable situation. (Since the reason for removing him, according to this article, was the fact that the event occurred and not the sexual orientation of the foster parents.)
