Dr. Marks reviewed studies published between 1980 and 2005 cited by the 2005 official APA brief which asserted that: "Not a single study has found children of lesbian or gay parents to be disadvantaged in any significant respect relative to children of heterosexual parents."
"The jury is still out on whether being raised by same-sex parents disadvantages children," explains Marks. "However, the available data on which the APA draws its conclusions, derived primarily from small convenience samples, are insufficient to support a strong generalized claim either way."
Of the 59 studies referenced in the APA brief, more than three-quarters were based on small, non-representative, non-random samples that did not include any minority individuals or families; nearly half lacked a heterosexual comparison group; and few examined outcomes that extend beyond childhood such as intergenerational poverty, educational attainment, and criminality, which are a key focus of studies on children of divorce, remarriage, and cohabitation. In other words, "A lack of high quality data leaves the most significant questions unaddressed and unanswered," concludes Marks.

Laughs on you.
The Marks study was published in conjunction with the Regnerus study. It accentuated the difference between lesbian studies and the Regnerus study.
Snicker hug.
It's just wonderful!
You should be a comedian, you really are the best at making a fool of yourself and not even realizing it!

More Kmart twirl, better watch out you don't knock something over.

Hey, by the way, how's that line going, you know, the one where you say that everyone else is insane because they don't have a paper to prove it, while you do?
You did admit to buying your paper-provider off too.

You only further expose it.
You have a hissy fit about a classic cultural tease, but ignore your stupidity being exposed.
Like I said, blonde...
You mean you like to mock yourself?
I see that quite clearly with your public displays of extreme ignorance and stupidity.

Carry on.

Scoffing is your answer?

That is an example of why my paper has the validation of reality, and yours doesn't.

Smile.

And, still, you don't know any gay couples and their kids. It's always easy to be an armchair expert, it doesn't require much, does it? And it's not like you need any actual proof of your claims.

You can just repeat them ad-nauseum, regardless of how many times they've been shot down.

Who said I didn't know any? I've lived my whole life around homosexuals. My best friend through school is gay.

But the thing that tops all is this; I am a lesbian trapped in a straight man! You know nothing compared to me!

It is also true that simple common sense validates my points, but the fact is, I do post scientific validation. You girls are the ones who keep wanting to change the subject from science to faith!

Marks looked at existing studies and exposed the weakneses. No different than what was done with Regnerus, only fairer. Did you look at the study?
Regnerus tried to find stable ss couples and could not. That isn't a failure of the study, it is a failure of ss couples!
Oh puh-leez. What a joke you are. Regnerus' methodology was FLAWED.

PERIOD.

It's funny how you believe that having a paper to say you're sane (one you bribed to get approved) makes you more sane.
In order to receive that paper, your sanity has to have been questioned.

It is not scoffing, it is calling it what it is.
You spin your Kmart twirling stick all around and ignore reality.
Your arguments have been debunked time and time again, and your repetition of your fallacies is boring.

Kmart is special though, he is mostly a troll, less so of a fundie.

You have a piece of paper that violates visible, obvious differences, culture, science, religion and the very design of nature's god and the God of nature to name a few.

I have a scientifically validated paper that is validated by my success at life. No one questioned my sanity, I asked peers for verification to answer people in denial.

An unbiased person would readily confirm the validity of my piece of paper.

Hence, I have validation of my sanity, and YOU are afraid to even ask family and friends to validate yours!

All of this exposes your claim about who deals with reality as false and reversed!

If you had any remnant of common sense, you'd be asking me to help you get sanity validation. I've shown I know how to get it from members of the APA!

So you're unpatriotic. What else is new. The minute you bring up god, your argument is rejected, thank you 1st Amendment and founding fathers. They would have put you back on the boat.

Too bad you haven't had any success at telling the truth. Psychiatrists are NOT your peers, you dolt (they have advanced medical degrees... I doubt if you graduated from high school). And they wouldn't give such a letter without a lengthy interview.

Aww, isn't that cute. That you have been successful in life, or claim to be, is not scientific validation.

What a heel you are to think your life is any more valid than another, as you argue for fellow citizens to be treated as second class citizens with less then equal protection of the laws.

you really are pretty full of yourself.

You claim I have a paper, what paper would that be?
Oh, I know, one you don't have.
A diploma.

I have no need to ask for confirmation of my sanity, since it is not in question.
Yours, however, is in question all the time. Specifically because you can experience things and claim they don't exist, hence your ignorance of reality.

Though you'll spin your Kmart twirl and lie ad-nauseum, along with repeating the same arguments over an over that are riddled with so many holes they look like cartoon Swiss cheese.
