Mark Regnerus' family structure study;
Here is the bottom line (pun intended). Out of 3000 subjects, 248 had parents in a same sex house (a fair homosexual representation out of three thousand).
By the way, that is the LARGEST study of gay households to date AND over the longest period of time.
ONLY TWO WERE ANY WHERE NEAR LONG TERM! It is not Regnerus's fault that's the best gay couples do.
The children from those gay houses rated at the bottom of the family studies. It is not Regnerus's fault they did poorly. He just reported the results.
This is the simple reality you deny.
Regnerus compared people raised by stable heterosexual couples, to those raised by unstable mixed-orientation couples, and then declared that “gay” parents have significantly worse child outcomes than do heterosexual parents, though his data does not support that conclusion.

For Regnerus’s comparison even to have begun to be valid, he would either have had to compare 1) stable same-sex-headed households to i) stable heterosexual-headed households, or 2) unstable heterosexual households to ii) unstable mixed-orientation-headed households.

There is no need for any further discussion as to whether Regnerus made a sociologically valid comparison; he did not. This issue alone is the beginning and the end of whether his published study is valid.

Writing in the Los Angeles Times, Dr. Nathaniel Frank said that Regnerus:“fails the most basic requirement of social science research — assessing causation by holding all other variables constant.”

Todd Akin's views opposing abortion access are well-known. Republican nuttys..

In August, 2012 he infamously said he believes that women who are victims of "legitimate rape" are physically able to stop themselves from becoming pregnant.

A comment that was widely ridiculed and rejected by medical professionals, rape victims and politicians on both sides of the aisle.

Thids proves he and those like him are NUTS and don't belong in politics.

R Hudson.

You are delusional.
You are on the bottom rung and lowest depths of the Euro-Caucasian food chain. Ask any other white person and they'll inform you of the same.
Please accept yourself being a bottom-feeder. No shame in being one. Your whole family tree are in the same boat alongside you, so you are not alone.

Actually, your comment is a lie.......the question that was asked was "Did your mother EVER have a Same-Sex relationship?" or "Did your father EVER have a Same-Sex relationship?" Once the person answered this question.....their questionnaire was separated into a different stack. There were 255 kids who answered the question yes......and it is hardly a fair representation of the Gay and Lesbian population.......also, it didn't matter if the Same-Sex relationship was a one night stand or long term........so, again hardly a fair representation!!!
Seems to me he was trying to help gay relationships out.

1. According to lesbian studies, the likelihood was of children in a gay household being in a BETTER situation.

2. At the least, given the assertion that gays provide a equal setting, there was a 50/50 chance of benefit.

The bottom line is that Regnerus randomly selected 3000 people. That was the results.

His studies validated every family study EXCEPT one conducted by gay friendly researchers of gay households.

Hmmmm...

Sorry honey,

Regnerus randomly selected 3000 people, divided them into seven family categories and listed the results.

Castigating the bearer of bad news doesn't change reality.
