The [lesbian] couple… have been criticised for denying their child a father.”

Speaking of overrated fathers…

Study: Spending time with Dad good for teen self-esteem



A massive study by Douglas W. Allen of Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, Canada (High School Graduation rates Among Children of Same-Sex Households), found that ‘daughters raised by gay men are only 15% as likely to graduate’ high school, compared to children raised in a home by their mother and father.

Lesbian parents ‘betrayed’ by [homosexual] father demanding to see his son



It will take at least a generation, a full thirty years or more, before the full effects of redefining marriage work themselves out throughout the social system.  When we come to our senses 30 years from now and realize that we have perpetrated a grotesque injustice, not a single child born fatherless or motherless within a same sex marriage will get his missing parent back.  Only prevention will protect children’s rights.

Findings from the New Family Structures Study



Exposing the Schlock Social Science on Gay Parenting



Compared with traditional married households, we find that children being raised by same-sex couples are 35 % less likely to make normal progress through school…



[Dr. Trayce Hansen (psychologist)] conducted a review of all the studies [he] could locate… [conducted by] pro-homosexual researchers only… which assessed sexual preference in homosexually parented children.

The Kids Aren’t All Right: New Family Structures and the “No Differences” Claim



This is the evidence ignored by, for example, judges who place children in gay-headed households.  It is also the evidence ignored by everyone who argues that homosexuality has nothing to do with sex scandals involving young boys.  It is also the evidence that will not go away.  The empirical reality of much of gay life contradicts the rhetoric of virtual normality…



… research clearly demonstrates that family structure matters for children, and the family structure that helps children the most is a family headed by two biological parents in a low-conflict marriage.



Children in nuclear families [defined in this U.S. Government report as biological mother-father] were generally less likely than children in nonnuclear families…

to be in good, fair, or poor health

to have a basic action disability;

to have learning disabilities or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder;

to lack health insurance coverage;

to have had two or more emergency room visits in the past 12 months;

to have receipt of needed prescription medication delayed during the past 12 months due to lack of affordability;

to have gone without needed dental care due to cost in the past 12 months;

to be poorly behaved;

and to have definite or severe emotional or behavioral difficulties during the past 6 months.



… [homosexual] male relationships are 50 percent more likely to break up than heterosexual marriages, while lesbian relationships are 167 percent more likely to break up than heterosexual marriages.


… [homosexual] parenting approximately triples or quadruples the rate of same-sex attraction.  It may be technically true that ‘the vast majority of these children eventually grow up to be heterosexual,’ but only because if being raised by same-sex parents increases the occurrence of same-sex attraction from 2 percent to 8 percent, 92 percent are still heterosexual.  But a fourfold increase is still a sizable effect statistically.


Declarations that homosexuality is ‘normal,’ ‘positive,’ and ‘legitimate’ would seem be the product of value judgments rather than objective science… how does science establish that such a grounding of human identity is ‘positive’… how did science become the arbiter of what is positive?

[Orlegitimate?”  Both of those terms are values-driven, not science-driven.  The APA even stated as much…]


In a moment of exceptional clarity, the task force put its finger on a core issue: Gay-affirming psychologies necessarily embody extrascientific moral and ethical deliberations that raise the potential of conflict with religious beliefs, precisely because the very act of giving priority to organismic congruence is a religious and ethical choice.”


[Regarding that last quote, religious and ethical choices are moral choices, not scientific observations.  The APA even acknowledges that fact.]

Study: Sons from traditional families do better at school



According to decades of research, the ideal family structure for children is a two-parent, mother-father family.  That research consistently shows that children raised in such families are more likely to thrive — psychologically, mentally, and physically — than children reared in any other kind of family configuration.”


[Yes, the article included all the requisite peer-reviewed scientific journal references.]

Yet, despite the abundance of scientific evidence cited above (and below)…

“… as people learn that friends and relatives are [homosexual], they become more sympathetic to [special homosexual] rights.

… children from fatherless homes are more likely to be poor, become involved in drug and alcohol abuse, drop out of school, and suffer from health and emotional problems.  Boys are more likely to become involved in crime, and girls are more likely to become pregnant as teens.
