This is a ridiculous, unscientific study. HIV is more under control now, but lesbians still suffer an enormous incidence of obesity.

Gay parents are no more likely to be pedophiles than straight parents.

If you believe otherwise, PROVE it.

The only thing the unregistered Topix trolls can prove is that they have a limited social life, and even less of a loving partner.

The comparison is between Pool A: women in same-sex unions and Pool B: unmarried and divorced women. Pool A is probably exclusively lesbian and bisexual women, Pool B is predominately straight. Lesbians and bisexuals have a higher suicide rate than their straight counterparts and women who never have children have a higher breast cancer rate, two factors which drag down the life expectancy of the group as a whole.

Your continual use of false names is ridiculous, CALEB, JAYCE, TRUTHTELLER, JOSH, DAVID MOORE, JON. When will you LIES end, liar?

I am guessing when you are writhing in Satan's eternal hellfire. LYING is a sin, liar.

How ironic that YOU are on here day and night to promise gays hellfire, yet you risk it yourself by your endless stream of lies.

And, moron, it is SIGNIFICANT, not significat. And what is the last word of your post...."te"?

Gee, a liar AND unimaginably stupid. What a shocker.

So, according to you, when gays marry, this will happen? Wow, you sure have an odd view of married partners' lives. I guess when you only have your horrible parents to look to as role models, what can one expect?

No loving parent could raise a hater like you.

By the way, please include this "major study", not the one you pulled out of your crusty ass, but a real one, by a real source. I'm sure that somewhere near S. 18th Street in Pekin, Illinois, you can find some library or somewhere like that to back your wild claims.

You are SO clever. I suppose you think that by including a number (97%) that this lends legitimacy to your words. But that doesn't work when you pull the number out of your hat. It reminds me of one of the Marx Brothers: "Numbers? I've got lotsa numbers."

Great! You've gotten up to "D" in the dictionary! Keep you nose to the grindstone and you'll get to "L" or maybe even "M" by the end of the year. Kudos!!

Oh yes I do, I just refuse to provide links on topix anymore because someone seems to be able to sabotage my pc. Since I stopped posting links, guess what? No pc problems. Imagine that?
Yeah.... that MUST be the answer.

Dude.... you are such a bullshit artist. You picked up the problem from the website you linked to, not from posting it!!!!!! JESUS TAP-DANCING CHRIST! That should tell you something about the validity of who posts that shit to the web.

The bottom line is, you have no valid evidence for that claim. That "study" by Paul Cameron is not valid. Even Exodus International finally realized THAT, and deleted references to his "study." It's simply junk. A 5th grader can tell you why it's not valid.

The earlier death of lesbians is odd, and brings up two questions re breast cancer.

Particular genetic predispositions (BRCA genes, etc.), seem to be sensitive to estrogen. That is, more estrogen is correlated with increased risk of breast cancer, which is why many women with those predispositions are told go off some birth control pills, be particularly careful during pregnancy, etc.
Does this imply that lesbians have higher estrogen? That would be odd, wouldn't it? One would think, if anything, the opposite.
Second, higher weight is correlated in both men and women with higher estrogen, because fat stores estrogen. Are lesbians generally overweight? If so, why?
These are just speculations thrown out for thinking about... I have no idea whether they're true or not, and as someone above comments, one wonders about how representative the samples in the study are... which the story does not say, nor is there a reference given to it.
Maybe someone here can give a ref to the actual paper?
