    The very article you posted disputes it. (see below) Clearly you pulled your original contention out of your ass. How ironic.

    “Whether same-sex parenting causes the observed differences cannot be determined from Regnerus’ descriptive analysis,” says Cynthia Osborne, associate professor at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin. “Children of lesbian mothers might have lived in many different family structures, and it is impossible to isolate the effects of living with a lesbian mother from experiencing divorce, remarriage, or living with a single parent.

    Gee there's a shock. Heaven forbid one of them should grow up to be a homosexual. What would you do? What would you do? Oh the horror!

    My generation was softer than my parents'. We had fewer hardships, more resources and Dr Spock. The current generation of pre-arranged playdate kids will be their own breed of hothouse flower.

    Then also, you have to remember, there is a higher percentage of single parent households these days and the parent is generally the Mom.

    Most of these boys I'm referring are straight. Boys should grow up to be men, not girly men.

    I won't know until I see your source material.

    From your link:
    The findings, to be published in the July issue of Social Science Research, are based on the first large-scale, population-based survey of young adults that features a large number of cases in which survey respondents’ parents had been in same-sex relationships.

    Most conclusions about same-sex parenting have been drawn from small, convenience samples, not larger, random ones,” says study leader Mark Regnerus, an associate professor of sociology at the University of Texas at Austin.
    No conclusions can be based off this source yet. Come back in July after the study has been completed and published.

    Perhaps they are just all attracted to you.

    I just somehow doubt that being raised by a single mom or two women without a father figure in sight is good at raising men. Call me what you will for that, but I think the evidence is out there that shows I'm right.

    Perhaps you just don't have anything to say and should stop posting.

    Scalia was not doing the wondering - in fact, he appears to take no side in the argument - he simply states that if same sex marriage is allowed then same sex couples would have a right to adopt children and sociologists are not in agreement about whether or not same sex parents is harmful to the upbringing of a child. That's a fact that he wished to be put on the record. He didn't say he agreed with it, he simply put it forward as relevant.

    Simply because you disagree with the ideological bent of those on the court you disagree with doesn't make those people evil or deserving of such disrespect.

    Once again Scalia is full of crap ... How many decisions by Scalia will it take for people to realize that he has an agenda and rules principally on his religious and other believes? Look up activist judge and his picture appears next to it. In the first place, there is not that much disagreement at all among sociologists on this question. His comment was misleading at best. The evidence suggests that there is little, if any difference, in how well the kids turn out relative to kids raised by straight parents. A recent article that came out suggesting that kids raised by gay parents don't turn out as well, was deeply flawed (and funded by two conservative organizations) and has been taken to task by other social scientists. We still need more data, but what we have thus far suggests that the harm is no less and no more. Why don't we ask, "Are opposite-sex harmful to their kids?"
