The American Psychological Association counters a new study doubting same-sex parents

As early as 2004, the APA Council of Representatives adopted a policy resolution that reiterated that there is no scientific evidence that same-sex parents are somehow less able to care for children. “There is no scientific evidence that parenting effectiveness is related to parental sexual orientation: lesbian and gay parents are as likely as heterosexual parents to provide supportive and healthy environments for their children,” says the APA.

APA: Gay Parents are A-Okay

_________________________________

From the last paragraph of the article, "The results of some studies suggest that lesbian mothers’ and gay fathers’ parenting skills may be superior to those of matched heterosexual parents." Dontchya know that's gotta chap the arses of the uber-conservative-bent-on-"traditional"-values fanatics! 24.gif

That's also why the notion that gay marriage affects traditional marriage is also bogus. From what I observe, lesbian and gay parents are just as loving to their children as heterosexual couples. I think a lot of these so-called moralist need to get a grip on reality.

Stating, "there is no scientific evidence" is like proving a negative. There is no support either for or against the position until it is carefully studied and repeated results concur convincingly. Remember, the tobacco industry and environmental cynics used the same statement.
