And check the research summary here, "New Family Structures Research and the “No Differences” Claim."
Progressives are working overtime to destroy and discredit the author of the new research, Mark Regnerus. See Molly Redden at TNR, for example, "It's Time for Mark Regnerus to Get Collectively Dumped."
The left wants to "Spitzerize" Regnerus. Recall the report from a couple of weeks ago at the New York Times, "Dr. Robert L. Spitzer, Noted Psychiatrist, Apologizes For Study On Gay 'Cure'." His research was met with "tremendous anger" by the radical gay community, and Spitzer reportedly spent many nights sleepless at the backlash.
Well, that's what you get for going against the left's orthodoxy, I guess.
BONUS: Linkmaster Smith comments:
I’m all for creativity (as this blog may in fact bear out, for regular readers). Invariants like the building blocks of society, e.g. families, may not be the best place to get all wildly experimental.Careful there, Linkmaster. You may have to recant if you announce those views too energetically.
