Study Shows Kids in Same-Sex Marriages Are Doing Just Fine


I am sure you know a straight couple who are terrible parents. You bet your ass, I do! But those straight couples can easily have and keep their children, while LGBTQ couples have a harder time adopting or living their best lives as parents because angry conservatives believe same-sex parents are not as fit as heterosexual parents.

Well, after 25 years, we now have empirical proof that same-sex parents are no different than straight parents. The National Longitudinal Lesbian Family Study followed a group of lesbian couples who started families in the late 1980s and 1990s, and they interviewed their kids as adults. Many of the lesbians' children are now 25 years old, and they told the study that they are doing just fine, thank you.

The researchers found no significant differences between the children interviewed and their peers.

ThinkProgress pointed out that the study was not racially or economically diverse and that it did not include male same-sex parented households, but the study's conclusions were similar to others made on the topic.
