Skip to comments.Lesbian Parenting Study:Research or Propoganda?
Posted on 06/08/2010 5:28:00 AM PDT by massmike
So I came across a series of news headlines that refer to a recent study which says that children of lesbian couples grow up just as well as children in households where there is both a mother and a father. These articles drew my attention because it goes right in the face of one of the core arguments of the effort to protect marriage: the idea that marriage is about family and a family is made by mothers and fathers together, who raise their children together.
At the bottom of their webpage is a link to their supporters and funders. Id like to go through each of these funders and let my readers decide for themselves if this study is research or propaganda. Remember, the project staff is a highly professional team. So all that is left are those funding the study.

Consider the Source, Funding and Design.
As IF the outcome of this study was going to show anything but what it showed.
Strike 1: The author is Nanette Gartrell (who is “married” to Dee Mosbacher, a self-described “lesbian feminist activist”).
Strike 2: The study’s funding was underwritten by LGBT interests.
Strike 3: The study outcome is invalid due to self-selection bias. It relies on a SELF-SELECTED group (!) without any control group (hetero couples, single straight parents, etc.). (It’s just 154 lesbian mothers who volunteered themselves).
Strike 4: The methodology of the study called for THE PARENTS to rate their own children, and the children to rate THEMSELVES via an “online survey.”
The liberal media now requires you to believe: 84 lesbian couples in a fraudulent, LGBT funded study contradicts hundreds of millions of real families (and 100,000 years of human history). What a farce. If you have respect for real science, just file this colossal waste of time under “p” for propaganda.
