(CNN) — A nearly 25-year study concluded that children raised in lesbian households were psychologically well-adjusted and had fewer behavioral problems than their peers.
Now, of course that study’s validity is going to be questioned by critics all over the board, especially since the research was funded by gay and lesbian advocacy groups. That makes sense. And of course, the author of the study maintains that her study was a “straightforward statistical analysis”. The president of a group called Concerned Women for America (which thinks everything should follow the Bible word for word*) is all up in arms, but this is the same organization that supports people getting fired for their sexual orientation and consider stem-cell research to be deadly and thought of as destroying human life. Um, you know, instead of helping to save lives.
The kids with two moms rated higher in social, academic and total competence. They also showed lower rates in social, rule-breaking, aggressive problem behavior. Whether it’s the two moms playing the biggest contributing factor or the starting a family without a penis requires quite a bit more planning, I think it should be enough to show people that homos can raise kids just as well as your Ward and June Cleaver type family, too.
I mean, look at the Beav. That kid was an idiot, always getting into trouble and falling for Eddie Haskell’s tricks. If June would have been married to Lucille McGillicuddy-Ricardo, just think of how well adjusted Beaver and Wally and Little Ricky all would have turned out to be. Instead, Wally turns into a womanizer, Theodore lives his life with the nickname of Beaver (no lesbian couple would have EVER allowed that!) and Little Ricky would have been, well, actually heard of instead of just an afterthought.
