Mark Regnerus, Author Of Dangerous & Discredited Anti-Gay Parenting "Study," Is At It Again With New Canadian Report
The effects of Mark Regnerus's loudly discredited and flawed 2012 study, “How Different Are The Adult Children of Parents Who Have Same-sex Relationships? Findings from the New Family Structures Study," at best villianized same-sex households and at worst kept homeless children out of loving homes (where Russia used Regnerus's study to ban adoption by loving same-sex couples).
Though resoundingly misleading, Regnerus's year old study is still used around the globe in an effort to validate homophobia. And now it may have some help. The American professor has thrown his weight behind a new study in Canada that echoes his anti-gay views.
In a new article he's authored, "A Married Mom and Dad Really Do Matter: New Evidence from Canada," Regnerus cites a study published last week in Canada.
He takes examples from the study, such as the claim that children of gay parents are 35% less likely to graduate from high school than those with married, opposite-sex, parents.
Describing “dramatically low graduation rates” of children with same-sex parents, Regnerus says that girls do worse than boys.
While the Regnerus study was criticized as it compared children with any gay parent, single, separated or divorced, to only married opposite-sex couples, he addresses that issue, claiming that the new study, based in Canada, is more accurate.
He concludes, asking: “Might the American Psychological Association and American Sociological Association have been too confident and quick to declare “no differences” in such a new arena of study, one marked by the consistent reliance upon small or nonrandom “convenience” samples? Perhaps. Maybe a married mom and dad do matter, after all.”
Surely, NOM, the Family Research Council, American Family Association, Russia and the Vatican will waste no time to weaponize Regnerus's latest work, despite heavy scientific opposition to its validity.
