Another One Bites the Dust

Via PageOneQ:
Oct.12, 2005 (Washington) -- Children growing up in same-sex parental households do not necessarily have differences in self-esteem, gender identity, or emotional problems from children growing up in heterosexual parent homes.
"There are a lot of children with at least one gay or lesbian parent," says Ellen C. Perrin, MD, professor of pediatrics at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston. She revealed the findings at the American Academy of Pediatrics Conference and Exhibition.
Between 1 million and 6 million children in the U.S. are being reared by committed lesbian or gay couples, she says. Children being raised by same-sex parents were either born to a heterosexual couple, adopted, or conceived through artificial insemination.
"The vast consensus of all the studies shows that children of same-sex parents do as well as children whose parents are heterosexual in every way," she tells WebMD. "In some ways children of same-sex parents actually may have advantages over other family structures."

That last line is going to go over like a ton of lead balloons with the zealots. Of course it isn't news to me or our two children.

Oh, well, it's just research from Tufts University presented to the American Academy of Pediatrics. It couldn't possibly measure up to the standards of the Family "Research" Council.... ;)

Parenting is not an issue of gender, but on responsibilities. Children of today are not anymore receptive to the people they call as models. Most kids decide to behave on the notion of rewards and adventures. Even gays and lesbians can be parents. However, there are effects once this kids are exposed to reality as determined by their growth and development.
