What do you think of this? Teens with same sex parents score higher...

This was in my new Parenting Magazine...

"In a 17 year old national study following the children of lesbian mothers, the teenagers with same sex parents scored higher in both social skills and academic competency than kids with opposite sex parents."

That's all the mag says, so I don't have information about the study itself, but I found this very interesting.

  • Did you know that anybody can conduct a study and make it show anything that they want it to show? It's really very simple to do.

  • I think that studies change all the time.

  • Idk.... I can kind of get it though....

    but it still doesn't change thoughts on same sex marrages for me..

    ((Before anyone freaks. Im for it!!! Everyone should have the right to marry the person they love. && if god made everything, than he/she made gays too.)

  • I'm with lilmoosesmom. I think it's interesting, but doesn't change anything. I'm very against people who are very against same sex relationships and marriage. Or at least them being mean about it.

  • No amount of evidence is going to change some people's minds.

  • You can make a study and get it to say just about anything. Just like so many studies that try to prove other things. There is almost always a agenda behind it.
