I don't know about you, but as a child, I didn't even need that kind of ammunition to make another kid feel bad. I could easily find something stupid to use to taunt the child, regardless of his parent's sexual orientation.
I'm sorry, but that argument holds no water. Kids will be kids. They will taunt and make fun of each other as they try to find their own level of self-worth. No matter what their parents say/do/are, all kids are going to go through a process of discovering this for themselves.
Hell, I made fun of adopted kids when I was young. Got into a fight with him and said "well, at least my mommy loved me enough to keep me". I'm pretty sure it hurt him more than it would some kid who had two fathers or two mothers. What can I say? I was 10 years old and feeling spiteful. I'm sure he got over it though(I know he did since I'm friends with him now).
