High school graduation rates among children of same-sex households (are 35% lower)
Review of Economics of the Household ^ | September 2013 | Douglas W. Allen

Posted on 10/04/2013 1:06:38 PM PDT by reaganaut1

Abstract: Almost all studies of same-sex parenting have concluded there is “no difference” in a range of outcome measures for children who live in a household with same-sex parents compared to children living with married opposite-sex parents. Recently, some work based on the US census has suggested otherwise, but those studies have considerable drawbacks. Here, a 20 % sample of the 2006 Canada census is used to identify self-reported children living with same-sex parents, and to examine the association of household type with children’s high school graduation rates. This large random sample allows for control of parental marital status, distinguishes between gay and lesbian families, and is large enough to evaluate differences in gender between parents and children. Children living with gay and lesbian families in 2006 were about 65 % as likely to graduate compared to children living in opposite sex marriage families. Daughters of same-sex parents do considerably worse than sons.

People with common sense understand that children are generally best off with their married biological parents (although that it is not always possible -- I understand that death and divorce happen).

This is an early indicator, in another five years, this same group will demonstrate an increase in criminal sex offenders, mass killers, serial killers and a whole host of really bad stuff...IMO!

Our next-door neighbors (lesbians) have twin sons. One of them dropped out of high school during the last school year.

The kids are kept busy being visual props at demonstrations, gay pride events, protests, vigils. They don’t have time for school.

**************************

The same way that heterosexuals do. One of them has sex with a male.

Bingo. This monstrosity is still relatively in the petri dish. What happens 20 or 30 years down the line when the horrific consequences more fully manifest themselves in these now-adults? The Gaystapo will play innocent, or completely brush it off. They got their way; society be damned.

1. Natural child of mother #1 or mother #2 with necessary ex-husband or ex-boyfriend contribution.

2. Inseminator-sired child of one mother or the other.

3. IVF-generated child of one mother or the other.

4. Adopted child of one mother or the other, or both.

One or both may be adoptive mothers. In such case the child is both of “theirs” legally, although of course not biologically.

It’s also because children in a “same sex household” generally come out of a dysfunctional heterosexual household. In my experience, many of the people who identify as “gay” do so because they have had miserable relationships (not necessarily their fault) with either their parents or persons of the opposite sex, even those to whom they were married.

Of course, this will never be admitted by the gay lobby.

Thank You SO MUCH for that little post-modern lecture. Gosh, majoring in Biology, how did I ever forget all these wonderful, completely Natural, and socially nurturing methods of providing a couple of twisted sexual deviants with a little plaything to warp physically and psychologically? And you're a Catholic?

I thought the criticism of us Protestants was that we were too prone to social radicalism.

The statement was sarcasm. There was never anything more NAUSEATING for me then seeing a Dyke and her Bottom in the NeoNatal Intensive Care unit taking possession of their new little toy who had the bad luck to be born to an alcoholic mother in California, only to be handed over to a couple of psycho freaks.

If you think THAT's normal, or healthy, or even "helpful", then God help you.

And of course now it’s forbidden to offer therapy for these poor people.

I really don’t blame these people, because in many cases, it really was a reaction to a problem that modern society cannot solve and will not even encourage them to solve. I was so depressed when I read about that miserable transsexual in the Netherlands (she was born a woman and had surgery and hormone therapy to “become” male) who had herself “euthanized” because she was so miserable.

In addition to having a society cruel enough to encourage this, she was brought up by parents who wanted only boys and simply excluded her because she wasn’t one. I knew somebody like that in California, a sort of stereotypical lesbian, who had been brought up as a boy because her father hated girls. Her father beat her mother on a regular basis...because she had given birth to a daughter. These people were rural lower income whites.

I don’t think it’s that unusual for family dysfunction to produce gays, but the problem is that now we can’t talk about it. So it gets repeated.

Not at all.

And while we’re on the subject, where in the article did you see it confined to a lesbian relationship?

That was the basis of your comment.

Perhaps you need a note? a “/s” marker to tell you it’s sarcasm?

Strangely I thought that was unnecessary.

But then I get all sorts of simpering answers explaining the New Age Birds and the Bees, as if this was the Daily Kos and didja know you can just trot off to the Fertility Doc and do the IVF thingy, and live out your Rainbow Life with the mammal of your choice...and a fake trophy kid?

C’mon. I live in Santa Cruz for God’s sake. Been there Seen that.

Another reason I AM so staunchly against it.

Uncalled for?

What’s uncalled for is mainstreaming the idea.

Of course they will. But even if true, so what? They insist on creating the bazaar "family" construct into which to inject a child and then, when the inevitable differences elicit the natural reaction from normal folks (not necessarily "bullying," which today can mean even mild ostracization), they act shocked and blame everyone else except themselves.

These selfish deviants are even more culpable for evil when they intentionally "produce" a child through artificial means instead of adopting, which can at least be viewed as meeting an existing need. If every homo insisted on adopting and condemned creating a child with a rented womb or purchased sperm, they would at least have a modicum of my respect. But such is not the case, nor will it ever be.

Exactly right. Perhaps he awoke on the wrong side of the bed this morning, or fell out of it and landed on his head.

There are some who are determined to be miserable human beings, and that is more to their misfortune than ours.
