USA Today recently ran a short piece scientifically comparing gay parents to straight parents. Here is the article. A few highlights I found interesting:
1. It’s shameful that USA Today had to use a picture of a stereotypical gay couple from a TV show instead of a real family. In my opinion, it really shows USA Today’s inability to be realistic to this topic—instead of just portraying the topic through fiction.
2. In the year 2008, 31% of gay and lesbian couples were raising a child in comparison to 43% of straight couples.
3. From an adult psycho-social perspective, the quality of the parents does not differ with sexual orientation.
What are your thoughts about the article and its conclusions?
