A recent survey in China indicates that young people are more broad-minded about homosexuals as a group, with 75 percent of those polled accepting homosexual acquaintances, 37 percent among their friends and 21 percent among their relatives. However, few people agree with allowing homosexual couples to adopt children. Cen Guozhen, a professor of psychology at Shanghai Normal University, released the results earlier this week at a psychology seminar in Shanghai. Cen said that of those polled, 43 percent said they shouldn't be able to adopt, 34 percent said they were not certain about it, and only 23 percent said they should. The random sampling was conducted among 324 students in the colleges and graduate schools of three Shanghai universities. Source. Shanghai Daily, chinadaily.com.
