that's fine, but you do see that you used blanket statements as well?<quoted text>
You're making blanket statements again, and they're not accurate as usual.
Not everyone is saying two moms are the same as a mom and a dad.
SOME people do indeed say that, but neither part is really accurate.
MY own view is that a same-sex couple can raise a child as successfully as an opposite-sex couple. Same-sex couples have been raising kids for a long time, and even without the benefits & legal protections of marriage, our kids turn out about the same as any other kids raised in a 2 parent household.
I'm not aware of any study which shows a significant difference which can be attributed solely to the gender of their parents.
Single people often raise children quite well, but our studies suggest its a much harder road...
If you agree that "two moms are NOT the same as a mom and a dad" then we have a rational distinction between the groups...
