Considering that I know hundreds of heterosexual families who are raising children, and only 3 homosexual families, that’s hardly statistically unexpected. I don’t think there’s any objective evidence to support your claim that lesbians have a higher incidence or domestic violence, substance abuse, or being victims or perpetrators of crime than the general population. Domestic violence is overwhelmingly male-in-female, and violence in general is overwhelmingly perpetrated by males.

Domestic violence is overwhelmingly male-in-female, and violence in general is overwhelmingly perpetrated by males.

Same-sex cohabitants report significantly more intimate partner violence than do opposite-sex cohabitants. Among women, 39.2% of the same-sex cohabitants and 21.7 of the opposite- sex cohabitants reported being raped, physically assaulted, and/or stalked by a marital/cohabiting partner at some time in their lifetime.
