A Canadian study has found that same-sex parents are just as good, if not better, than opposite-sex parents.
The study, released by the Canadian Justice Department, was commissioned in 2003 by its then-Liberal government. The study primarily focused on lesbian couples.
The study, authored by Professor Paul Hastings at Concordia University, asserts that children raised by lesbian parents are equally as socially competent as children raised by heterosexual parents.
“A few studies suggest that children with two lesbian mothers may have marginally better social competence than children in traditional nuclear families, even fewer studies show the opposite, and most studies fail to find any differences,” says the 74-page study.
I’m still looking for a copy of the study. I haven’t had a caught up on my blog reading today, so maybe some other queer blogger has gotten their hands on it.
