Sure Fruitloops. That's credible.

That's YOUR rebuttal? Are you kidding me? His methodology was flawed. It had nothing to do with his "perimeters." Way to prove you know zilch about research methods.

Exactly! Which at the most would equate to a step parent situation, but with the added negative of missing one gender.
This also puts the child in the Cinderella Effect situation, 100 times more dangerous to the child's life than a natural home.

You cannot draw valid conclusions about parents that were NOT studied, you flaming dumbass. Research Methods 301... check into it.

You stop that right now young man, you're dishonoring the family, and our name with your insults and crude disgusting spelling of Anblomi. Do you think you're funny? Well you're most certainly not. Your father and I want this nonsense to stop right now....and you're to be nice to other people here from now on!

Yes, Mrs. Anblomi, we sympathize with you and do not blame you for Neil's outrageous vulgarity and crudeness.

Some children turn out bad even though they come from fine loving homes like yours. Perhaps he'll grow up some day and be responsible and sober.

We wish you good luck.

Marriage is good for society. All marriages.

Opposite sex, same sex, incest and poly are all marriage and all deserve the same respect and consideration.

There is no "one" right way!

No.

This is one of many;

The differences between marriage with/without kids and gay couples;
A apple tree bearing fruit.
A apple tree not bearing fruit for some reason.
A walnut tree who never bears any fruit wanting to be a apple tree.
A walnut tree hanging apples on it's branches pretending to be a apple tree.

The claim that if the government doesn't 'require' apple trees to bear fruit, then it is discrimination not to call walnut trees apple trees too is simply silly.

Marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Gay couples do not just fail in the primary essence of marriage, out of all relationships, they are the oxymoron of marriage.

Moreover, if you remove the element of procreation, you dumb down marriage to just a friendship. Hardly a cause for government interest, let alone selective discrimination.

Smile.

So you would say that all couples that do not have children are not actually married.

You just lost the entire argument... again

In fact you have lost the argument so many times now that states are falling away from your stupid argument like dominoes

Every study sets parameters on participants, time, topics of study to name a few. Perhaps you might have more to learn about research methods???

Regnerus established parameters for SEVEN family types. Gays are the only ones whining. Even Slate magazine commented on the illegitimate ad homoan attacks. Their advice? Produce legitimate studies that counter Regnerus.

However, as of now, the Regnerus study is the largest, latest most scientific study to date on family types. Lesbian couples ranked last, after single parents...

Oh, and natural parents ranked first. Again.

Smile.

Step parent situations are not well studied???

Orientation makes a difference?

Well, it may, but according to the latest, largest and most scientific study on family types to date, it is an extremely negative difference...

There are scientific standards, ya know? Each scientist doesn't get to make up his own rules to suit himself. Variables MUST be accounted for, or you have nothing. You really have no idea, do ya? Didn't you take any social sciences in college?

Comparing apples to oranges is meaningless. You can't draw conclusions about gay couples if you didn't study any. You can't compare long term hetero couples to short term gay couples with any validity. Do you understand? One would have no way of knowing if it was a difference in time or a difference in sexual orientation that caused the results.

Said no such thing.

I said married couples without children are like barren apple trees.

Gay couples are like desolate walnut trees hanging apples on their branches demanding to be apple trees.

I've seen dominoes fall. States are not falling like dominoes.

What grade are you in???

Nope. Not scientific. No validity. Data did not support conclusions.
