      This ‘raising my rainbow’ blog is complete fiction. I don’t believe a word of it. Not this entry, or all the others.

      I have a Mormon cousin who is vocal against gay parents, and she comes from a family of adoptees who hold disingenuous bigoted views that gay adoption is bad for all adoption. My point is maybe “some” adoptive families seek out answers to these question. But woe the gay child who is brought into the wrong situation.

      You should tell them to do some research into Indigo or Rainbow Children and see if they fit the profile. My guess is that children that are gender non-conforming are rainbow children who have a higher understanding intuitively of the soul which has no gender.

      Well, my partner and I are both white gay dads, with two adopted kids (boys, African-american, 10 & 13.) Thus far, neither show any sign of being anything other than straight. Still, as we’ve taught them to be appreciative/understanding of all, regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexuality, etc., they are very open-minded about the various people they meet and the possibilities for themselves. Maybe it is less about adoptive vs. biological, and more about how a child is raised to think about themselves and the world? More open-minded kids = more gender creative kids?
