Maybe

I believe in zero population growth.
That would technicly allow me two children but I think I might not to make up for the families with more kids.
On the other hand, I think I might want to nurture a child.
Don't know weather it would be my own or not.
(I am a bi male)

Well

Personally, I feel no desire to raise a child of my own. Maybe I will one day, if a future boyfriend want's it. Guess we could adopt. But I doubt it.

- I think a lot of gays, (or at least those I've spoken to) are concerned that they will never be able to parent a child because of their sexuality. They want a child that's really theirs, and hence wont adopt, but at the same time don't want that child growing up in a the akward situation where there are two dads and a mom. I think this is one of the biggest downsides and problems with being gay. But it doesn't really bother me...

Not likely

I just don't think I'd be a very good parent, at least at this point in my life. I'm too selfish; I like my time, I like my money, and I really like my sleep, and once you have a kid, that's all a thing of the past. All of which kind of bars me from being a decent parent right now, and I don't want to be one of those people having their first kid at 40, I think that's too far away from being a kid myself to really be able to identify with my child, which I think is important.

Yes

I'd love to have a part of the one I love growing inside me and then see it grow up as the fruit of our love. But my strangely masucline hips and lack of womb MIGHT hinder that one ;-)
