And that's just for starters.
There are many other studies showing the opposite.
These stories. I wonder who makes them up.
Worst Jedi mind trick since “you will not surely die”.
I think I just better keep my mouth shut as this may be “settled science.”
Who did the report? Kinsey?
It's possible that male-female families compare favorably when the mother doesn't work and is available for nurturing and bonding. Of course they'd never admit that. It would go against their ideas about what it means to be a successful woman.
Well that does it then. . .I guess it must be okay.
That’s because the boys are too busy trying to run away from their molesters
Notre Dame University has denied official recognition of a student group promoting policymaking that places primary emphasis on advocacy explicitly for the interests of children in considerations about so-called “Gay Marriage”. The quest for recognition by Students for Child-Oriented Policy (SCOP), was rejected in an April 30 letter from the university’s Student Activities Office.
In evaluating a proposal, approval is based on several things. There was not a need for another similar-type club. The Club Coordination Council
SCOP’s Notre Dame Marriage Petition cites Pope Francis and the Catechism of the Catholic Church in support of the group’s quest to promote children’s interests as equally valid to the now-exclusive consideration given adults’ interests regarding so-called “Marriage Equity”.
“We reject the view that the young have agreed to redefine marriage. Rather, we think that they have not explored the meaning and importance of marriage.”
Students for Child-Oriented Policy
An opposing group, Students Against SCOP, asserts that SCOP makes “incorrect implications that same-sex parenting is damaging to children this blatantly ignores all empirical data in this field of the social sciences.”

The most scientifically credible studies show that children of heterosexual parents fare better on numerous indicators of personal well-being than children of homosexual parents. Authored by Mark Regnerus, a sociology professor at the University of Texas at Austin, the study was published in the July 2012 issue of Social Science Research.
Regnerus’ findings conflict with studies widely touted by homosexual activists which have claimed that children raised by homosexual parents fare as well or even better than their peers. Many of these studies, Regnerus points out, have relied on small, self-selected samples, parent rather than child reported outcomes, and have exhibited evidence of political bias.
Regnerus drew his data from the New Family Structures Study, a data collection project that drew from a large, random sample of American young adults. This study is one of the few that measures outcomes as reported by the children of homosexuals, rather than relying on an assessment by the homosexual parent.
A large-scale study by Douglas W. Allen, professor of economics at Simon Fraser University, has found that children in same-sex households were only 65 percent as likely to graduate from high school as those living in traditional opposite sex marriage families.
Are Kids Equal to You?
It appears to have escaped the writer that this entire concept is a biological impossibility. Depriving a child of a mother and a father, who do indeed have distinct and essential roles in the nurturing and development of their children and acting like that is a good thing for a child by these kinds of nonsensical stories is really pathetic.
IF 80% had female parents, and 18% had male partner parents, what were the other 2%????
Happier? Because they’re “gay,” don’t cha know?
There’s no such thing as a child of a “same sex couple”.
The normalization of perversion continues...
NBC - ‘notin but crap’
"Stigma can be subtle, such as letters home from school addressed to Mr and Mrs," Dr Crouch said.
"Or it can be overt and very harmful, in the form of bullying and abuse at school... What we have found is that the more stigma these families experience the greater the impact on the social and emotional well-being of children," he added.
Or the stigma can result from the fact that the children can observe, all around them, children who are being raised in intact families. They then get a strong sense that something is abnormal about their situation. A feeling of stigma is not necessarily a result of someone else's actions.
thiu report is a year old. Dr Simon Crouch is a homosexual...so of course there is no bias
The article keeps referring to “children”, so I think that is one of the weak points of the “study”. They don’t seemed to have actually tracked any of these kids over a period of years to see the real results of this type of “parenting”. If the major problems arise in puberty, for example, and they just did a survey of a bunch of six year olds, then it’s going to be deeply flawed.
