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.

BIG surprise......NOT! :)
I always cringe when I read or hear about innocent children being adopted (sold) by queers. That child is being involuntarily thrust into a perverted life style from which they probably will never recover. Pray for each and everyone of them.
I can’t believe the Slimes allowed this study to be disseminated.
“Like we didnt already know this.”
Ronaldus Magnus said it best:
You’re right about that; the data should be saved/stored by interested parties, because it doesn’t fit “the program”.
“I always cringe when I read or hear about innocent children being adopted (sold) by queers. That child is being involuntarily thrust into a perverted life style from which they probably will never recover.”
Besides the obvious risk (the child’s physical safety), what chance could they have with “parents” that are certifiably crazy? Until it was changed decades ago for purely political reasons, homosexuality was rightly considered a mental illness.
another important study: bears go to potty in the woods....
“Study: Children Fare Better In Traditional Mom-Dad Families”?
Using leftist aka progressive catch phrases like traditional marriage over normal marriage is wrong. We need to cease pandering to the leftist aka progressive perverted homosexuals. Their lifestyle choice is not normal.
This is also not just about heterosexual versus homosexual — it’s also about divorce and single mothers. Households headed by single mothers usually breed a new generation of sociopaths and criminals.
Well, the studies have a purpose. So far, the liberal left persists on anecdotes and Christian charity. We want to believe the best about people. So if one is ‘independent’ often one wants to believe the anecdotes about the normal Eagle Scout valedictorian raised by two lesbian parents that have been together for 20 years as the norm for parents in the gay community.
But that is not the norm in the gay community and the statistics about stability of households, abuse and violence between gay couples and so on are pushed under the rug in favor of the anecdote.
These studies need to be publicized, because the plural of anecdote is not data, and the data is clear: as an example of how to set up a stable social construct that is good for the majority of the children involved in it, homosexual parents, even long term committed couples, do not appear to compare well overall in comparison to stable two parent families where both parents are biological parents.
Homosexuals like to point out how poorly heterosexuals are doing, with the divorces, adultery, child abuse and how in cohabiting couples, statistics for poverty, violence, neglect, abuse and poor outcome of maturity of the children that grow to adulthood in such situations are also quite poor.
But two wrongs don’t make a right and pointing at someone and saying they are bad too, is not a valid legitimate argument.
We just need to realize that for the overall health of society and raising kids to be good adults, we need to promote and teach and learn how to be good stable, married parents too.
What a joke. Homosexual lifestyles are NOT about stability. Two homosexuals in a long-term stable relationship is NOT the norm. And, even if two are together for a long period of time, they are having sex outside their relationship.
