Study: Children Fare Better In Traditional Mom-Dad Families
By Cheryl Wetzstein- June 10, 2012
Two studies released Sunday may act like brakes on popular social-science assertions that gay parents are the same as or maybe better than married, mother-father parents.
The empirical claim that no notable differences exist must go, Mark Regnerus, a sociology professor at the University of Texas at Austin, said in his study in Social Science Research.
Using a new, gold standard data set of nearly 3,000 randomly selected American young adults, Mr. Regnerus looked at their lives on 40 measures of social, emotional and relationship outcomes.
He found that, when compared with adults raised in married, mother-father families, adults raised by lesbian mothers had negative outcomes in 24 of 40 categories, while adults raised by gay fathers had negative outcomes in 19 categories.
Findings such as these do not support claims that there are no differences between gay parenting and heterosexual, married parents, said Mr. Regnerus, who helped develop the New Family Structures Study at the university.
Instead, children appear most apt to succeed well as adults when they spend their entire childhood with their married mother and father, and especially when the parents remain married to the present day, he wrote.
Mr. Regnerus study of 2,988 persons ages 18 to 39 including 175 adults raised by lesbian mothers and 73 adults raised by gay fathers marks the first research from the new dataset, which initially included some 15,000 persons.

No! Really? You are shattering my world.
Like we didn’t already know this.
How many of these studies have to be done before we can all just admit that a Mom and Dad, married, raising their own children, is the best situation for the child?
We didn’t need a study to know this.
Those who believe otherwise will never believe this study anyway, but of course living with fruits is not the best situation for children.
“May I have your attention please. There is a telephone call for Captain Obvious. If Captain Obvious is in the house, please pick up a courtesy phone and dial 9.”
Now if we could get parents to stop fighting each other and learn to love their families.
They needed a study to determine this? Next up a study to determine if the sky is blue.
Paging Captain Obvious?
My gosh, brilliance never ceases!
My gosh, brilliance never ceases!
When I read the title, my first thought was NO SH#T, SHERLOCK!
This study’s finding won’t be allowed to stand. The study authors will be attacked, discredited and transformed into homophobes.
We have people like Ellen and Elton and Rosie who think they’re right and we’re wrong. We’re not !! They’re screwing up everything no matter where they go. Go back in the closet. It’s absolutely wrong that I have to deal with your perverted life style. Why is the government NOT protecting me and my children and grandchildren from you perverts?
Now they’re going to do a study on whether the sun rises in the east and sets in the west.
Can I get a billion dollar gubbermint grant to do this study? I’ll even take pictures to prove it.
