Lesbian Parenting Is Conservative Star's Newest Target

Mark Regnerus found that lesbians' kids fare worse, but critics blast his methods. “Liberty run amok can create extraordinary personal disaster,” he says.

http://www.buzzfeed.com/annanorth/le...tars-newest-ta

A snippet:

Mark Regnerus's report today that lesbian couples' children turn out worse than straight couples ignited a firestorm, drawing cheers on the social right and denunciations from the gay rights movement.


The study was the latest in a series that have made Regnerus, an associate professor of sociology at UT Austin and married father of three, a darling of the right: His other findings tout the benefits of early marriage and the costs of "hookup culture."


But if he's become a star of the social right, he said in an interview, that's (almost) completely an accident.


"I'm not terribly politically-oriented myself," Regnerus told BuzzFeed Monday. "People probably won't believe it, but I've yet to vote for a Republican presidential candidate."

Took my sister 5 years to get my nephew, who is black. My buddy Marshall who has all the special needs kids I posted and showed you before said they gave him a really hard time. He said the first one was the hard one but once they put you through the gauntlet it get easier. If I thought it was easy I would adopt one child right now.

I'd rather see a kid raised by two lesbians that are caring and stable over a mom and dad pair that are abusive and dysfunctional.

What if all the information you have is: lesbian couple versus single parent?

Not knowing anything about either party? I'd probably wish the kid good luck. Heh.

I don't begrudge anyone for tying to adopt, regardless of their social standings, provided they have the sense to be able to be a good parent(s). As long as those people do right by the kid, then nobody should have anything to say about it. Just my humble opinion.

When did accepting responsibility for your actions begin to be dismissed as a factor into your situation in life?

Excuses are like asshole, everyone has one and no body wants to hear from it. I'm sure the Catholic Church is having a huge influence on the people chucking out babies for the sole reason they want to **** without foresight.

Give me a break. I'm not a huge fan of either but this whole blaming one side for another problem is everything that is wrong. It's a microcosm of everything from government to school systems to..well, having babies that you expect someone else to take care of after you pop them out of your worthless cum dumpster vagina. We need more people like a white blood cell needs more viruses to kill it. We need quality, not quantity and if you can't provide it close your legs, buy a vibrator or wear a rubber and stop taking down producers that are unlucky enough to be stuck with your neanderthal mentality.

Not really surprising. Lesbians have to be the most socially maladjusted demographic on the planet.

Studies? All the studies I have seen report no statistical difference whatsoever from heterosexual parent homes (your own personal experience not withstanding).

Yup. Sadly, it's no different than adopting dogs or cats. Everybody wants a kitten or puppy. Nobody wants one that's already been corrupted by somebody else.

I agree we have too many people. If it were up to me, we'd sterilize a pretty significant portion of the world's population. Barring that, you're not really proposing anything approaching a solution, nor commenting on the topic at hand.

All else equal, I'd go with the lesbian (or gay) couple over a single parent, and the male/female couple over the same sex couple.
