Conduct research on the social problem. Explain how research has been used to describe the social problem in proper context. There is a lot of research that proves that children can still thrive in this situation. In fact, not a single study has found the children of lesbian or gay parents to be disadvantaged because of their parents' sexual orientation. According to acla.org, Researchers estimate that the total number of children nationwide living with at least one gay parent ranges from six to 14 million. An estimate of 21 states have allowed adoptions to lesbian and gay couples. Social works have observed children during home visits using written questionnaires, and recorded parent-child play sessions. While LGBT adults 19% say there is “a lot” of social acceptance today and many say they have been victims of discrimination, such as being subject to slurs or jokes, or suffering rejection by a family member. Propose a possible sociological question for this problem using the sociological question. Discuss the sociological questions of your classmates. A possible sociological question for this problem can be, Who are the groups that have diverse beliefs and opinions on this problem and How can we promote a positive society to them individually to eventually stop the discrimination?
