    More from the article:
    "Studies of primary caretaker married fathers; egalitarian coparenting heterosexual couples; single mother or fathers after a death divorce or desertion; heterosexual single mothers by accident or choice; lesbian mothers and gay fathers after heterosexual divorce; planned lesbian motherhood through donor insemination (DI) or adoption; planned gay fatherhood through surrogacy or coparenting with women"

    It's also not difficult to find research on adoptive parents, foster parents, kinship carers, grandparents, extended families etc

    So basically your statement is just nonsense.
    And even more from the article... the portion you cut out preceeding the above statement:
    "There is no clearly identified body of research, however, to which we can easily turn. An unusually diffuse array of literatures bears indirectly on these questions..."

    Maybe you can succeed where they failed and uncover an actual research study that tested the assertion that "compared to all other family forms, families headed by married, biological parents are best for children."

    More likely, you'll continue to post glorified lit reviews of research that sort of addresses a point that you'd like to be true.

    The article I linked to was not just a literature review. It was a meta-analysis of 81 studies- which you might have known had you bothered to read it. Unless you don't know the difference?

    The point you seem to be completely missing is that the assertion of "compared to all other family forms, families headed by married, biological parents are best for children." is not backed up by research.

    Yes but they'd rather say that than "I can't get laid / no chick will come near me." Since people do tend to socialize with same sex (at least until the 'chain' of marriage is on them), it's somewhat believable when they talk of being jealous.

    That's funny, I actually do know the difference, whereas you clearly do not. Believe me, there is much more to a meta-analysis than summarizing individual studies in terms of "less than" and "greater than" relationships. You actually have to do something called math, lol.

    You called the research paper a lit review, so clearly you hadn't even read it when you wrote that.

    And they did do 'something called math'.

    But you are still completely missing the point. Or are you purposefully trying to deflect?

    I called it a review article (which it is) and a "glorified lit review" which was just poking a little fun. I believe they'd call it something like a "systematic review."

    And they did do 'something called math'.
    Oh yes, they calculated this average:

    "as many as 20% (5/25) of the findings shown might be noise."

    AND a couple of standard deviations! Let's call it a meta analysis!!
