    Children of Lesbian and Gay Parents

    Also, under the same link:

    .... Bailey and his colleagues (1995) studied adult sons of gay fathers and found more than 90% of the sons to be heterosexual.
    Since the incidence of homosexuality is about 1%, this would suggest that kids of gay parents are ten times more likely to be gay.

    My conclusion is sound. You, on the other hand, have offered nil.



    Since the incidence of homosexuality is about 1%, this would suggest that kids of gay parents are ten times more likely to be gay.
    The incidence of homosexuality is between 3%-7%. They said +90%. That fits within the parameters. Further, all research shows that there is no higher propensity of homosexuality amongst children of gay parents than those amongst children of straight parents.

    You're wrong. Again.

    1%-10%. There is no exact number or percentage. Which means that there could be as much as 9% less chance of homosexuality.

    Actually, according to the US Census, the number is almost exactly 1%. *shrug*

    That was the first one I read, which leads me to the conclusion that you haven't read it, or the others, with a critical eye, but merely to support your preconceived conclusion.

    Actually, they managed to determine this using much more subtle questioning:

    http://www.gaydata.org/02_Data_Sourc..._Long_Form.pdf

    See: Person 2 (pdf page 11), question 2: relation to person 1 (related, husband/wife or not related, unmarried partner), question 3: sex. IF person 2 is husband/wife or unmarried partner AND same sex and person 1.....
