This will never make the news. But it’s the most news-worthy article I’ve read all week.
“The greatest negative outcomes were found among children of lesbian mothers. This contradicts defective studies popularized by the media claiming children fare as well, or better, with lesbian mothers. Regnerus’ study showed negative outcomes for these adult children in 25 of 40 categories including far higher rates of sexual assault (23% of children with lesbian mothers were touched sexually by a parent or adult, in contrast to 2% raised by married parents), poorer physical health, increased depression, increased marijuana use and higher unemployment (69% of children from lesbian households were on welfare, compared to 17% of those with married parents).”

“Dawn Stefanowicz, an author and speaker who was raised by her homosexual father, told LifeSiteNews that the incident highlights the dangers of placing children in “experimental family structures.” She says children in such situations are prone to confusion about their sexuality and gender.”
“Gender identity, gender roles, and sexuality are often considered fluid and boundless in homosexual households, diminishing both the value and importance of our own birth gender as children,” she continued.She said that growing up in a household in which her father had sex with other men “deeply affected” her “sense of self as a girl and young woman.”“I felt rejected and not as important as the males in my life,” she explained. “I didn’t see a significant woman in my life – mother – being loved. This lead me to believe that maybe it would have been better to have been born a boy.”
It is sad that the children are the ones who suffer with the instability of moving back and forth from home to home, and they don’t have a stable set of parental examples in their lives. However, I still feel that non-traditional families are detrimental to the growth and development of a child. Children need good homes, and as Ms. Stefanowicz stated, situations like this put children in scenarios where they are prone to confusion about their sexuality and their gender roles not only in society but within their own home. It’s dangerous.
