    But the gain is that a legislative body is making the decision. Do you get that point?
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    Sure there are differences between families. But here, we can account for some of the variation based on the parent's sexual orientation. Nonetheless, (as the authors point out), research on gay parenting is still in its infancy, and studies tend to suffer from many methodological problems (small sample size, volunteer sampling, etc.) It may be that when more represenative samples of the gay population are studied that these differences go away, or that others present... won't know until we do the research.

    One of the main points they make is that researchers are hurting the science in overlooking/whitewashing differences.

    Other high points of the study include:

    • Teenage boys raised by lesbians are more sexually restrained, less aggressive and more nurturing then boys raised in heterosexual families.
    • Adolescent and young adult girls raised by lesbian mothers appear to be more sexually adventurous and less chaste. Sons of lesbians display the opposite boys are choosier in their relationships and tend to have sex at a later age than boys raised by heterosexuals.
    • It is more common for both lesbian moms to be employed, to earn similar incomes and to cut back on their hours of paid work in order to nurture young children. Some research indicates that egalitarian parenting contributes to child well-being, Stacey said.
    • Same-sex couples proved better at managing disagreements and anger than did comparable heterosexual married couples. Research suggests that parental conflict may be one of the most significant sources of difficulty for children, Stacey said.

    "Studying how the numbers, genders and sexualities of parents interact to influence children could give us valuable information relevant to central questions in family theory," said Biblarz. "Researchers have been reluctant to investigate differences among children for fear that such evidence will be used to discriminate against gay families."
