Lucia New study shows gay parenting is harmful

Wow, the results of this study are explosive, especially since there is a worldwide push for gay marriage and adoption.

Children raised in a lesbian household are 50% more likely to later describe themselves as homosexual, bisexual or asexual, than children raised by heterosexual couples.

In a stunning new study, reported in the Washington Post newspaper, long-accepted assumptions that there were no differences between gay and straight parenting have been overturned with long term data.

Among the other revelations, children raised in lesbian homes are more than twice as likely to be contemplating suicide, at a rate of 12% against 5% for heterosexual families.

On the issue of child sexual abuse, the differences are horrific. While two percent of children in heterosexual households report being touched sexually by a parent or other adult, a stunning 23% of children in lesbian family units report sexual abuse by a parent or other adult – almost 12 times higher than the rate of child abuse in heterosexual families.

While fewer than one in ten children who grew up in married heterosexual families have been diagnosed with sexually transmitted infections by adulthood, more than double that number – 20% – of children raised in lesbian families end up with sexually transmitted infections.

Children raised by lesbian families are overwhelmingly likely to end up on social welfare – at 69% – compared with only 17% of children brought up in heterosexual families.

Overall, lesbian parenting had negative outcomes for children in 24 of 40 categories overall, while for gay men raising children there were negative outcomes in 19 out of 40 categories.

On the strength of the results, study author Mark Regnerus, a sociology professor at the University of Texas at Austin said today: “The empirical claim that no notable differences exist must go.”

Ultimately, the best environment for children to be raised in is in a traditional family unit, where the mother and the father are married to each other and make sacrifices for the good of their children. As soon as focus is on the parents and what is good for them, then everything goes downhill.

So basically the government now is functioning as an agent for homosexuals to help them procure children to abuse. I am not surprised in the slightest, our government is demented and evil. They have got to go. All of them.

Hasn't heard of this study before, doesn't surprise me though. Mind you the pro-gay crowd won't care, they don't care about the children. Must spread the word on this, thanks for posting it.

RWT,

It's certainly an interesting one. The caveats have been that there weren't enough children of same-sex couples to study, so children who knew one of their parents was gay were included. That may skew the study a bit, as we're talking the addition of adulterous parents.

As time goes on, more and more of the children of committed same-sex couples will come of age, so a more accurate picture will be gained on what the effects are, hopefully.
