It's worse than that actually. The respondents were the grown children of couples, at least one of which had had a same-sex relationship (or so the kids believed) at some point.
Furthermore, Benedict Carey of the New York Times noted that "About half the study participants with a gay parent, as defined in the study, were born out of wedlock and half into a traditional family that broke up. Many lived with the gay parent sporadically;" "Just three of those who had lesbian mothers lived out their entire childhood with that parent, Dr. Regnerus said; none of those whose fathers had had a same-sex relationship lived full time with their fathers through childhood."
In other words, the study compares the children of stable homes to those of not-so-stable homes, with predictable results. A proper study would compare the children of stable married hetero couples with those of stable married gay and lesbian couples.
See post above.

It is not Regnerus's problem that there are no stable ss couples, or that not a single ss couple can mutually procreate.

Nonsense. There are plenty of happily married same-sex couples out there, and many of them have adopted children, used artificial insemination or surrogate motherhood. Good luck convincing them to take surveys from someone with an obvious anti-gay agenda though.

Don't be silly stupid, how would anyone know anything about a study that doesn't exist yet?

You only expose your bias with comments like that. As if your previous ignorance and distortion were not evidence enough!

1. Blatantly untrue as usual. The APA knowingly uses clearly fraudulent and unscientific studies while ignoring a study that is the largest and most scientific to date. Moreover, they ignored clear medical science to support inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning anal sex. You trumpet putting children in that deceitful and unnatural situation.

2. You compare worst case situations to justify putting children with ss couples. And sadly, especially for the child, that is the best you can offer. If your concern was for the child's best interest, you would fervently be arguing for the best case scenario.

Your motivation is clearly not the best interests of the child.

And KiMare tries to change the subject again.

Anyway, back to Regnerus:

So, I had a hypothesis that red apples are crunchier than orange apples. I decided to do a study to prove this. I couldn't find any orange apples (hey, it's not MY fault that WalMart didn't have any), so I used oranges instead.

Well, my study clearly showed that the red apples were crunchier than the orange apples, just as I believed it would. Apple growers agree with me too, so my findings must be accurate.

There were no stable SS couples. He used what was available.

You want him to give homosexuals a special exemption from normal default families. Blatantly unfair.

Nah.

He used the internet-trolling respondents who wanted $20 for their response.

There were Very few responses and no control or verification.

No honest statistical conclusions to be drawn.

Bogus study.

Apparently you know nothing of survey standards. He used the golden standard.

Compare that to the methods used for lesbian studies.

This post and you are perfect examples of why the normal people of the US will never accept your perversion.
Your kind are crude, dirty and not normal. Look up the definition of queer and there you are.

Then he needed to survey children from broken homes where both parents were hetero and children from broken homes where one or both parents were gay or lesbian.

You clearly don't know what the study was about.

The study randomly sampled almost 3,000 individuals aged 18-39, with the goal of comparing “how the young-adult children of a parent who has had a same-sex romantic relationship fare on 40 different social, emotional, and relational outcome variables when compared with SIX other family-of-origin types.
