Children of same-sex parents enjoy better levels of health and wellbeing than their peers from traditional family units, new Australian research suggests.
In what they described as the largest study of its type in the world, University of Melbourne researchers surveyed 315 same-sex parents and 500 children about their physical health and social wellbeing.
Lead researcher Doctor Simon Crouch said children raised by same-sex partners scored an average of 6 per cent higher than the general population on measures of general health and family cohesion.
"That's really a measure that looks at how well families get along, and it seems that same-sex-parent families and the children in them are getting along well, and this has positive impacts on child health," Dr Crouch said.
There were more than 33,000 families with same-sex parents living in Australia, according to the most recent Australian Bureau of Statistics census.

good thing the social sciences aren’t particularly easy to manipulate for propaganda purposes. Yes, sarcasm.
Most of these agendized studies are based primarily on self-reported information. Not surprisingly, they show that kids are better off without either a mother or a father. Naturally, the media can’t wait to celebrate.

Lying is the whole of their lifestyle...So don’t believe everything or anything they say for that matter.
Yep, that’s what I thought. The media want to celebrate homosexual parenting, so that’s why this article is out there in the first place.
So those of us who would ordinarily be drawn to marry a member of the opposite sex ought to suppress that inclination in order to raise happier, better adjusted children?
And research suggests Hitler was kind and benevolent to a fault. /s
When I was in college I worked for a proff who lived off grants. The first question he always asked what, “What results are you looking for?” Amazingly, those were the results he delivered. Usually, all work, on the grant happened when the report was due. Meantime the students and the proff lived off of it and just considered it their due.
The same is now true of every statistic the government produces. What do you want to prove? Obamacare is working? Sure. That’ll be $80 million dollars please.
what a steaming pile
>>The precise details of how these outcomes were evaluated definitely need some scrutinization.
It’s probably like the survey where they determine the “healthiest” nations and a country gets 25 points out of a best possible 100 for having socialized medicine.
They probably get 25 points in this survey for “both parents can share the same clothes”.
Hitler also loved animals, was a vegan, and a patriot.
Yes, they make it sound as if it is preferable to raise children in same-sex couple households.
Research performed by same sex researchers. Healthier translates to gayer.
“Ms Phillips also questioned the the objectivity of the study’s lead researcher.
“Simon Crouch is raising two young children himself with his male homosexual partner, the results should be taken with caution,” she said.”
This explains it.
I’d like to see a study broken down by genders, i.e. boys raised by two women vs. girls raised by two women vs. boys raised by two men vs girls raised by two men.
And I’m itching for the study on these kids when they become adults.
I do beg to differ,but then who am I to dispute scientific
Healthier translates to gayer.
