Same sex couples can be effective parents, researchers find

The Self-Evident: Same sex couples appear to do as well as those raised by parents of both sexes, suggests an international research review that challenges the long-ingrained belief that children need male and female parents for healthy adjustment.


If you find these results a surprise, then you need to get over your myopic little small-minded self and recognize what's real in this big, wide world that you have not yet bothered to visit.


The Take-Away: Sociologists Stacey and Timothy Biblarz of the University of Southern California-Los Angeles, spent five years reviewing 81 studies of one- and two-parent families, including gay, lesbian and heterosexual couples. "No research supports the widely held conviction that the gender of parents matters for child well-being," they conclude.


Tell me now that you really do not think that your genetalia counts more in the rearing of your children than does than amount you love the child!

Yeah, I could just spit.
