YOU complained about people posting your real name. Were you lying?

I could have been -- or I could have been using a pen name, talking about a different name, or never posted my name at all.

The point here, is you published a claim someone else made -- based on no more than the fact the person said it.

And we know this because I never published any name here at all --your homosexual pals claimed I did, but I never did.
I notice you didn't say anything about a woman getting married to a woman. Your fixation on gay men is interesting.
Of course it is when you see everything from the prism of homosexuality. But that's not normal ... or healthy --and underlines what's fundamentally wrong with you people -- you sexualize everything.
A non issue. You are appealing to tradition. A logical fallacy.
Now, deal with the issue.
And you're appealing to marital law which is based on the English common law tradition.
A man can marry a woman, so a woman should have that same right.
Can you come up with a logical reason she shouldn't?

Answer, or just admit you can't.

Yes.

Because the Regnerus study indicated the children of lesbian parents turn out disasters.

Rose's Law
Morons with no real argument scream, "But what about the children!?"
Not going to bother with the study because it has nothing to do with women getting married to each other. They can marry and not raise children, or raise children and not marry.
Try again, stupid.
You are a disaster.

Regnerus Study Update – University of Texas Rejects Allegations of Scientific Misconduct
Submitted by Admin on August 31, 2012 – 10:00 amNo Comment
The University of Texas at Austin has determined that no formal investigation is warranted into the allegations of scientific misconduct lodged against associate professor Mark Regnerus regarding his July article in the journal Social Science Research.
http://www.utexas.edu/news/2012/08/29/regneru...
==========
To sum up: no evidence Regnerus engage in ethical or academic violations or incompetence. Therefore, his study now becomes the gold standard.
Thank you for the update!

I was just told on here that it had been totally discredited, can you believe that???

Why would someone lie like that???

Wishful thinking???

What a night for smirking!

University of Texas at Austin Completes Inquiry into Allegations of Scientific Misconduct

Aug. 29, 2012

AUSTIN, Texas — The University of Texas at Austin has determined that no formal investigation is warranted into the allegations of scientific misconduct lodged against associate professor Mark Regnerus regarding his July article in the journal Social Science Research.

As required by its Revised Handbook of Operating Procedures, the university conducted an inquiry to determine whether the accusations made by writer Scott Rose had merit and warranted a formal investigation. After consulting with a four-member advisory panel composed of senior university faculty members, the Office of the Vice President for Research concluded in a report on Aug. 24 that there is insufficient evidence to warrant an investigation.

Provost and Executive Vice President Steven Leslie accepted the report on Tuesday and deemed the matter closed from an institutional perspective.

As part of the inquiry, the university hired Dr. Alan Price to ensure that the inquiry was conducted appropriately and fairly. Price, a private consultant, is former associate director of the Office of Research Integrity in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Price found that the inquiry was handled in a manner consistent with university policy and indicated the process was “also consistent with federal regulatory requirements of inquiries into research misconduct.”

The allegations raised by Rose fall under the university’s definition of scientific misconduct, which states, in part, that “ordinary errors, good faith differences in interpretations or judgments of data, scholarly or political disagreements, good faith personal or professional opinions, or private moral or ethical behavior or views are not misconduct.”

As with much university research, Regnerus’ New Family Structures Study touches on a controversial and highly personal issue that is currently being debated by society at large. The university expects the scholarly community will continue to evaluate and report on the findings of the Regnerus article and supports such discussion.

I know that you're challenged in this regard, but read what UT actually says. It only says that Regnerus didn't engage in any unethical actions. It DOESN'T say that his study has merit, and it certainly doesn't say that his "evidence" (as such) supports the conclusions that he and his conservative funders proclaim.

UT is silent on the merits of the study; it's only response is to claims of unethical scientific conduct.

If this study is the "gold standard", someone's been fooled by pyrite. This study is junk.

Please apply the same standard to the Lesbian study I posted. The one peer review only dealt with some of the issues...
