Gay Problems

In our politically-correct Western culture, where any and every kind of relationship has to be judged equal to every other, it would be easy to think that the children of same-sex coupled households are as happy and thriving as much as those from heterosexual families.  A new academic study based on the Canadian census shows a very different result.

The study, published recently in ‘Review of the Economics of the Household’, reveals that the children of gay and lesbian couples are only about 65% as likely to have graduated from high school, compared with the children of married, opposite-sex couples.  Moreover, girls are more apt to struggle than boys; daughters of gay parents displayed dramatically low graduation results.

These statistics are particularly interesting because the survey evaluates a 20% sample of the Canadian census, where same-sex couples have had access to all taxation and government benefits since 1997, and to marriage since 2005.  The survey separated out children living with a single parent who is gay or lesbian from children living with a gay or lesbian couple (either married or in a ‘common law’ relationship akin to cohabitation).

The results show that children of married opposite-sex families have a high graduation rate compared to others; children of lesbian families have a very low graduation rate compared to others, and the other types (common law, gay, single mother, single father) are similar to each other and lie in between the married/lesbian extremes.

The report remarks that the intact, married mother-and-father household remains the gold standard for children’s progress through school.  Children of lesbian couples do less well on average than children of single parents.  Girls living in a gay or lesbian household are only 15% as likely to graduate compared to girls from opposite sex married homes.  So the study undermines not only claims about ‘no differences’ but also assertions that mums and dads are interchangeable.  They’re not.

LGBT activists, who have pushed the agenda for same-sex marriage, have had their grounds seriously undermined by this comprehensive survey.  The loudest voices may call the tune for legislation and public opinion, but God established marriage between a man and a woman because it’s the best – and right - environment for children to be raised.
