Report Children adopted by same-sex couples fare as well as or better than those adopted by heterosexuals

Haha^

Just one thought, How would the child handle this "later in their life.?"

So long as the child is taught to treat heterosexuality the same way, there shouldn't be much of a problem.

Ironically it seems to be straight parents that aren't giving the right kind of education here.
 
Well, being gay Isn't natural at all! And why give education of such thing?

I agree, like I said! But well, I stumbled upon this article: Kids of gay parents fare worse, study finds, but draws fire from experts.

CBS News) A new study that finds children of a gay or lesbian parent may be more likely to have social and emotional problems has sparked controversy on both sides of the same-sex marriage debate.

The study, from Mark Regnerus, an associate professor of sociology at The University of Texas at Austin, surveyed more than 15,000 Americans between the ages of 18 and 39, asking them questions about their upbringings. Its findings are published in the July issue of Social Science Research.

One survey question asked whether a parent had been in a same-sex relationship during a child's upbringing; Regnerus wanted to see whether there were differences between kids raised in a household by a parent in a same-sex relationship compared with those who were raised by biological parents who were married and heterosexual. The survey results were measured by a set of 40 outcomes on social, emotional and relationship factors. Outcomes included whether a child had grown up to need public assistance like welfare, were more likely to have anxiety or depression, were more likely to be abused, or were more apt engage in unhealthier habits such as having more sexual partners, smoking or using drugs.

Regnerus' analysis identified 175 now-adult children who said they were raised by a lesbian mother, along with 73 who said their father was in a same-sex relationship. Focusing on the larger sample, the study found respondents whose mother had a same-sex relationship fared worse on 24 of the 40 tested outcomes, compared with children of an intact heterosexual couple.

"flawed, misleading, and scientifically unsound paper that seeks to disparage lesbian and gay parents."
 
Oh, dear Lord. Forgive this ignorant fool.
Why does he do this? He purposefully builds our hopes up, making us think he's finally thinking straight and then he makes a 180 and goes full speed to square one.
 
and goes full speed to square one.
No I'm not! I Just want more answers! whoa, what's wrong with that? And Btw: Almost everyone's talking about the gays, but not about the children. eh?
You know how "it's out there" Don't you? One way it's morally wrong.. what they do. But If the kids will be all right. that's fine. I don't say nothin about that ! ( "Being gay Just Isn't natural." Love is natural.)
 
Wow, like that sentence:
"Being gay Just Isn't natural." Love is natural.
Gonna be my next custom title.

Edit: or not, since it doesnt fit >.<. Damn you firecat!!!
 
So then gay love isn't really love at all? Just when I thought I was starting to understand things...

    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/
