Summary/Abstract: The perception of non-heterosexual persons still depends on stereotypes which have not been confirmed by research. The stereotypes depict non-heterosexual persons as people who create relationships that are less strong and tend to be more prone to certain diseases that are supposed to be the effect of a different sexual orientation only. However, the parental abilities do not depend on the sex or the sexual orientation, and children raised by homosexual persons do not differ from the population when it comes to intelligence or health.
