Is God or nature wrong in making them male and female? There's no such thing as a single "gay gene" that drives a person's sexual behavior, concludes the largest genetic study ever conducted on the issue. As with the Gartrell and Bos study, this created a social desirability bias, because the lesbian parents knew full well why the study was being done. From what I hear it is in the Geneva convention and ratified by the UN that a child has a right to be raised by a mother and a father period. But you are ill-informed if you do. Check the figures, because today most of our youth who are not religious are all sexually cross overs.
Children Raised by Lesbians Do Just Fine, Studies Show
Father Tad Pacholczyk, Ph. She is one of a growing number of same-sex divorcees. So results on children raised by gay men are not firm. Robert Oscar Lopez, who has described himself as a "bisexual Latino intellectual, raised by a lesbian, who experienced poverty in the Bronx as a young adult," now works as a professor at California State University. And of those who are in relationships, only about 20 percent of same-sex couples are raising children under age 18, according to the Census. Abstract Ten narrative studies involving family histories of children of gay fathers and lesbian mothers were evaluated statistically in response to Morrison's concerns about Cameron's research that had involved three narrative studies. That means sample sizes are inevitably small, leading to study results that are less robust.

In another study, teens were asked about delinquent activities, such as damaging others' property, shoplifting and getting into fights, in the previous year. They petitioned for nearly two-thirds of such divorces in the last ten years. At the end of the day, what matters to kids is far deeper than parents' gender or sexual orientation, the research suggests. One problem is that proponents of this view routinely ignore research on same-gender parents.
Facing the effects of same-sex parenting
Description: Tadeusz Pacholczyk, Ph. In general, kids in both heterosexual and lesbian households had similar levels of academic achievement, number of friends and overall well-being. The studied outcomes were limited to children four to eight years of age, so that any later effects, as they passed through puberty, for example, and "came of age," were not included. A study comparing 78 lesbian families in the United States with their counterparts lesbian households in the Netherlands, showed American kids were more than twice as likely as the Dutch to be teased about their mothers' sexual orientation. This relationship would not be, for example, two fathers and a mother, or three women, or a single man because this does not exist in the natural biological filiation.
