    Thanks.
    Yup. But that's not necessarily transferable to other enterprises, in spite of what is claimed here.

    or people.

    Many are quite steadfast in their resistance to all attempts thereof.

    But anyway ... the data is there ... how about if I tell you that 61% of children of lesbian mothers & 71% of children of gay fathers reported themselves to be "entirely heterosexual" compared to 90% of children from traditional parents.
    So is it nature or nurture?
    You'd need to cite that data, obviously. Nothing I've seen would suggest that children of gay parents are more or less likely to be gay themselves. Then you'd need to explain the choice of this very exacting quote "entirely heterosexual." It could be indicative of nothing more than kinder terminology from the children of same sex couples, who take the position that any orientation is possible, regardless of what they actually do. Meanwhile, children of heterosexual couples may be less open to the idea, and use more definitive language. And, of course, nothing actually suggests that being open to the idea has any bearing on a person's actual orientation. But even if your claim were true, then you'd need to show some reason why being homosexual is bad.

    Are you ****ing kidding? Of course the source matters. We will not just accept what you have said. If this information is there, we want to read it and examine it ourselves to determine its authenticity. For all we know, it could be made up. It could have used a biased sample, or too small a sample size. It could have used misleading language. It could be based on other research that has already been disproved. YES! You must show the source or else you're probably just making it up. If it's compelling, of course we'll listen to it. That's what scientifically minded people do. We go where the evidence takes us.

    I'll show some sources. Take a look.

    Since Bubba appears to be afraid to link his source, I believe this is it here:

    Gay Parents Raising Children: The Mark Regnerus Study

    I'll take a look at it later on today, however, I find the source incredibily dubious to say the least off the bat.

    Thanks Gardener, it seemed fishy from the start.
