tricky dicky ricky, you live up to your infamy!<quoted text>An Economics professor applauding a seriously methodologically unsound study, couldn't they find an actual sociologist? Yes dear, there are flaws in the existing studies, their sample bases are small and tend to be unrepresentative of the population of same sex couples with children, but their flaws pale in comparison to that agenda driven nonsense Regenerus pumped out. What you and the author of that piece you badly cut and pasted fail to grasp, is that if the problems that Regenerus claims to exist and at the magnitude he claims, even those small, unrepresentative samples should have stumbled across them. Amazingly, none of the dozens which have been done ever did. If all you have to offer are the lame attempts by others to blow life into a dead horse and childish insults, you really should quit while you're behind.
"The bias of the same-sex-parenting literature has been recognized by individuals within and outside this literature (indeed, in the same issue of Social Science Research as the Regnerus study, Loren Marks has provided another critique of this literature). Ironically, the common complaint about Regnerus that he compares apples to oranges is valid about practically every study that finds no difference between homosexual and heterosexual families. In the latter, biased samples of high-income, highly educated, self-selected lesbian parents are compared to random samples of opposite-sexed parents.
If the Regnerus study is to be thrown out, then practically everything else in the field has to go with it."
That is the VERY NEXT SECTION OF WHAT I POSTED PREVIOUSLY.
