hardly honey, I referenced the Regnerus study. The very fact that out of thousands of contacts, finding a stable ss couple was near impossible. That addresses the first point, and the study directly addresses the second. I noted the 'Cinderella Effect' which references the third point.
But interestingly, I was responding to three unsubstantiated claims made by a gay twirling troll. You tiptoed past that... interesting. Exposes your bias, doesn't it?
More anti-gay "twirl", distorting reality to fit your prejudice, just like the Regnerus "study". The American Sociological Associationís Supreme Court brief "destroys claims made that same-sex households are inferior when it comes to raising children, which is a major argument for those pushing Prop 8. The ASA especially calls out the Mark Regnerus study, which is the recent controversial study claiming children raised in same-sex households suffer adverse effects. Supporters of Prop 8 made this study a huge part of their arguments in spite of fact that it has been discredited."

Cinderella effect data is based on step parent and even mom's casual boyfriend data, not same sex families or adoptive straight families. These families are very different. The data does not hold up for adoptive parents.

You are attempting to compare families that have experienced divorce and re blending to families where the relationship of the parents has remained intact for the life of the child. Intact marriages are not the same as families of divorce and remarriage.

Adoption is not the same as a step child relationship:

"Although remarriage of a father or mother can have bad consequences for children, when a couple adopts a baby unrelated to either of them its prospects are much brighter... parents treat their adopted children just as well as biological children."

"Two recent studies help to clarify the issue of how well adoptive children are treated. The first, published in 2007, found that children in adoptive households are treated better than children in homes with two genetic parents."

Whatever the reasons for the Cinderella effect, it is now quite clear that it is not triggered by a lack of genetic relationship. After all, adoptive parents take better care of children than birth parents do. It seems that caring for children, related or not, involves a deep human need that is better satisfied by adoption than step-parenting." http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-human...

1. Talk about gay twirl. Prop 8 was over LONG before the Regnerus study was done. Right off the bat you show deceit and ignorance!

2. Ss couples most often involve step children, not adopted children. The risk for the child? 100 times greater than in a biological home.

3. Ss couple homes will NEVER be comparable to natural families. One parent is ALWAYS missing. That is why ss couples don't qualify for marriage.

4. Again, you are being deceptive. The studies on adoptive parents showed that they spend more time with the child. Why? Because of the problems inherent in an adoptive situation. Children in an adoptive home statistically rate far below children in a natural home.

The bottom line? Ss couples always deprive a child of one gender, and at least one parent, to the detriment of the child!

And yet the vast percentage of AID's cases world-wide are within the 2% gay population. Moreover, the highest percentage increases are still within the gay culture.

I've said it before, KiMerde, and I'll say it again...

If you were truly concerned about STD's, then you'd be an advocate of SSM. Again, you reveal yourself to be nothing more than the TOPIX AssTroll.

At any rate, STD's have nothing to do with the forum...

Troll on, KiMerde.

It's no wonder why strange things are happening. Looks like the book of Revelations is correct. Everything the book has mention about is happening. Though I disagree with the legalization of gay marriage, but it is said that this will happen, and looks like this generation. What a downfall, the war is till ongoing and will never stop, the ocean keeps on rising, and there are islands that are drowned and people relocating. Sh*ts aint gonna be good, good luck when you s*ck bastards faces the wrath of God. YOu guys have reversed the true nature that intents man and woman. Gay couples cant make babies, they can't create the next generation. They only can spread more HIV-AIDS...Im not hating, HOMOSEXUAL is WRONG!!!!!!
