Salon: 'Gay Couples Have Happier Kids' - Traditional Family 'A Dying Model'
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 09/04/2012 9:27:57 AM PDT by chessplayer

The left's war on traditional marriage took a truly disgraceful turn Monday.

The folks at Salon actually published a piece entitled "Gay Couples Have Happier Kids."

The sub-headline read, "Studies show that the traditional nuclear family is not better. It's a dying model -- and that's a good thing":

If you want what’s best for your kids, one surefire way to provide them with a healthy, happy home is to make sure they have lesbian parents. In the longest-running study of lesbian families to date, zero percent of children reported physical or sexual abuse—not a one. In the general population, 26 percent of children report physical abuse and 8.3 percent report sexual abuse.

Yup. If you want what's best for your kids, give them away to a gay couple. Gays never argue or get angry. Gays are perfect. sarc/

Just because they’re called “Gay” doesn’t mean the kids are happy.
I expect they’re not at all.

Because it's healthy to be deprived of a father? Where do these people come up with this nonsense?

Gays make up a mere 1-2% of the US population. Do these idiots over at Salon think they speak for all of the rest of us in this country?

It`s a farce.
Gay`s can`t make kids,-
they depend upon real marriages for kids-
Ask any gay: “How are your gay parents today?”.

The ideal family is the multi-generational family that was exticted in the middle of last century when welfare took over caring for the older generation in households and we switched to the “nuclear” family structure, little did we know that was a stepping stone to the complet dissolution of the family as a unit.

The Old timers are now kept segregated fromt he family and are unable to pass their timeless wisdom onward to the younger generation, what fills this vaccum? Government control, plain and simple.

This also leads to a lack in respect for the elders, this “infantized” generation makes the manipulation of the masses far easier than it once was....

First, gay marriage will be available.

Eventually, it will be mandatory.

I think their radical agenda of these people to get rid of all straight people and then artificially inseminate lesbians.

Of course, they'll have a re-education camp to see if any straights can be converted. And death camps for those who can't.

Those studies cited show no such thing based on “science”. These were self selected studies meaning that the candidates knew what the study was testing and volunteered the answers. Do you really expect people who know they are having a study of the validity of their alternative lifestyle to not answer questions in such a way to produce an affirmative result? The Regnerus study on the other hand applied a rigid scientific methodology designed to eliminate the bias of such “survey studies?” which is in vogue in the social sciences.

The big problem with the lesbian study in particular is the definition of happy and the definition of harm. Also the abuse analysis is not the least capable of being answered by the self selected group. Its like excluding the most likely to be disfunctional individuals and then exclaiming that you found no disfunction. The reason for the screaming concerning the Regnerus study is that it applys real science to the issue and that is where the gay activists will always lose. If they can’t gin up the data and have researchers intimidated into never reporting findings not supportive of their harmful lifestyle they lose.

This is why it is very important conservatives stay active in the sciences. So much of leftist activism claims to use “science” when in reality they are using loaded dice.

Here is a great article by Julie Hamilton, Ph.D. describing the misinformation that abounds.

I anesthetized a young girl (11yrs old) at work last week for a colposcopy to evaluate her complaints of abdominal pain. She had a huge, extensive psych history, including a diagnosis of bipolar disorder at age 8.

Her mom was the biggest bull dyke I’ve seen in a long time.

According to the child’s medical record, she lives at home “with her two moms & nonbiological brother”.

Yeah. What a happy home /s

first they are not gay they are homosexuals, secondly they have done this lie because an in depth survery came out recently which showed kids with natural normal parents raise much happier, healthier parents and kids with homosexuals are hurting their kids mentally.

Also these homosexuals go out and purchase a child and then play family, .

It’s not right, nor is it healthy for a chld to be brought up near two or even homosexual and being taken to their freak parades

That explains why my family works pretty well. My mom and my my wife’s parents are just 45 minutes away, so my kids spend almost as much time there as do at home, at least on weekends.

I suppose if we had a big house with everybody moved in, or maybe a multi-unit compound, things would really rock.

I expect Salon ran that piece because Regnerus (who recently released his study showing kids raised by gays fare WORSE than others) was just vindicated by the University of TX after being attacked on ethics violations by gay advocacy. The war continues...

Of course, they HAD to come out with this fiction after Regnerus was exonerated last week on his study of the harmful outcomes on children raised by homosexuals. This was perfectly predictable.

So the article was put out by Salon.com which was registered by a J D Rhea in Oregon who’s registered several other domain names which appear to pertain to salons and the fashion industry which means he’s most likely gay. Why would you expect anything else. That way they can raise you boys and rent them ou to NAMBLA

Uh, gay couples can not have children, so they can’t have happier kids. If hetersexual parents is a dying model, then gays no longer want me to believe in proven science. Yet they will call me a “flat earther” for not buying into their notion that the earth’s surface temperature is affected by what kind of light bulb I use.
