‘Love’ and ‘caring’ for a child are certainly necessary for good parenting but the evidence is that a child needs to experience the different kinds of relationship offered by a father and a mother. How can ‘two dads’ support a ‘daughter’ experiencing her first menstrual cycle?
Research published in 2012 by sociologist Mark Regnerus into eight different family structures using a nationally representative random sample (the New Family Structures Study), found a number of negative outcomes were associated with having a parent who is or has been in a same-sex relationship compared with having two married biological parents. The original findings attracted criticism but were nonetheless strengthened in a follow-up paper published later that year.
Research by Paul Sullins published during February 2015 showed:-
“Children with same-sex parents in the United States suffer twice as many emotional problems as do children with opposite-sex parents, and four times the emotional problems of children raised by their own joint biological parents. Since no same-sex partners can be joint biological parents, such families cannot, by definition, achieve the aggregate level of child benefit that is the case in (non-adoptive) opposite-sex intact marriages.”
Discussing the Sullins research, Regnerus stated:-
“Results reveal that, on eight out of twelve psychometric measures, the risk of clinical emotional problems, developmental problems, or use of mental health treatment services is nearly double among those with same-sex parents when contrasted with children of opposite-sex parents. The estimate of serious child emotional problems in children with same-sex parents is 17%, compared with 7% among opposite-sex parents, after adjusting for age, race, gender, and parent’s education and income. Rates of ADHD were higher as well - 15.5% compared to 7.1%. The same is true for learning disabilities: 14.1% vs. 8 %.”
Biological reality – the truth about sexual reproduction
- Only vaginal intercourse between a man and a woman can produce a child of which each is a biological parent.
- No intimate sexual behaviours between people of the same sex can do that.
Gender ideology, gender mainstreaming and transgender behaviour
- An agenda to deconstruct all difference between male and female, in denial of the reality of biological difference.
- Goes much further than seeking ‘equality’ of men and women.
- Aims to artificially create a diverse range of genders, each of which has equal value and equal rights, by deconstructing the ‘binary hierarchical gender order’.
- Notwithstanding the sex of your body, ‘you can be whatever gender you wish to be’.
Sexualisation of children is part of the gender mainstreaming agenda. As German author and sociologist Gabriele Kuby explains:-
“Gender theory says our sexual orientation is the main criterion for our identity. The main value by which this is promoted is freedom. Our hyper-individualized society claims that we have freedom to choose our sex, whether we are man or woman, and it is our freedom to choose our sexual orientation. Society must not only tolerate but positively accept any kind of sexual orientation. But in fact, heterosexuality is the natural condition of our human existence, and more than 97% of the population of this earth is heterosexual and has an instinctive rejection of homosexuality. The people who push the gender agenda around the world of course have to start with very young children and teach them that any kind of sexual orientation is equally valid.”
Kuby observes that “Deconstruction of gender identity through ‘diversity education’ and dissolution of ‘gender stereotypes’ is an irresponsible experiment on defenceless children.”
