Children of G… Parents Suffer: Complaint Filed at U. T. About Professor’s Study

Jul 12, 2012 by

by Donna Garner – Because the University of Texas is filled with liberal professors, many of whom promote the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) lifestyle, a study conducted by associate professor of sociology, Mark Regnerus, published in the journal Social Science Research (June 2012) has now come under attack. ( 7.11.12 – “UT Investigates Professor’s Study on Children with Gay Parents” – Austin American-Statesman — ).

Five U. T. faculty members and a New York City freelance author (Scott Rosensweig), who writes an LGBT blog, have filed a complaint with U. T. President Bill Powers. The University has 60 days to conduct the inquiry.

FACTS: Mark Regnerus conducted “gold standard” research in which he used a data set of nearly 3,000 randomly selected American young adults raised by gay parents vs. those raised by mother-father parents. He looked at the young adults’ lives and compared them on 40 measures of social, emotional, and relationship outcomes.

CONCLUSION: When Regnerus compared young adults reared by mother-father families, the young adults reared by lesbian mothers had negative outcomes in 24 of 40 categories. Those reared by gay fathers had negative outcomes in 19 categories … “Children appear most apt to succeed well as adults when they spend their entire childhood with their married mother and father, and especially when the parents remain married to the present day.”

Regnerus has defended his study by saying, “This academic team merged scholars across disciplines and ideological lines in a spirit of civility and reasoned inquiry, and the protocol developed by this team was subsequently approved by the University of Texas’ Institutional Review Board…Normal procedures were followed for obtaining outside support, as many researchers do.”
