Gay Parenting

This is more of a request for information than anything else. When it comes to gay parenting, their seem to be two alternate realities existing side-by-side: one in which all of the research indicates that the children of gay parents grow up to be as ‘normal’ as any other children, and one in which all of the research indicates the exact opposite.

If you’ve ever argued for either of these wildly divergant worlds being the ‘true’ one, I need your help. Comment on this post with a link to the study or statistic you use to back up your argument, and be specific: I’m looking for actual academic sources here, not Americans For Truth or some gay activist’s blog with no citations.

If you don’t know where to find that information…well, perhaps you’d rethink your position?

(And this isn’t just me making some sort of point in a roundabout way. I’m genuinely looking for information.)

    Please look at my book ON BEING A GAY PARENT, with plenty of citations. It is a pro-gay, pro-Christian, and pro-parenting.

    Thanks for the recommendation, but are any of those citations easily available online? Unfortunately, I don’t have enough time or money to track down more books right now (my hands are rather full with college work, I’m afraid!).
